Mud Lake Park is located in a rural part of north Dubuque off highway 52 down a bluff along the Mississippi River. Only about a third of the camp sites are reservable online, the rest are on a first come, self-reservation basis. See their website for info on campsites & facilities - mycountyparks.com/county/Dubuque/Park/Mud-Lake-Park/Facilities.aspx The non-reservable sites have most of the shade. We reserved site #41, it had water & electric (note- 50 amp only; no 30 amp socket) graveled, fairly level, $24 These sites look like super-long pull-thrus, but two sites share half of each one. So the first one there can pull thru, later arrivers have to back-in. A year-round park ranger is in residence at this park. Modern shower/restroom facilities are located next to the ranger residence as is the dump station. There are picnic areas, a shelter and a boat ramp provides boating and fishing access. Firewood is available for purchase. There are a lot of trains all hours of the day (& night) that have to blow their horn as they cross the highway intersection. We camped at Mud Lake Park in a Motorhome.

The View Restaurant & Bar is next door at the adjacent Hawkeye Marina. It has a 2nd story deck with great views of the marina and river.

Mud Lake Park is six miles north of Dubuque and four miles off highway 52. The park provides ample boating access, has large trees (but only a few by the RV sites), and has a full-time manager on site. Although their web site only lists 20 and 30 amp sites, the campground offers 30 and 50 amp services. The only drawback is that there are a lot of trains and horn blowing all hours of the day, but they aren't too intrusive, and the park is secluded enough to provide great night-time skies. Close to Dubuque yet out far enough to allow deer sightings. We stayed nine days, and would stay here again. We camped at Mud Lake Park in a Motorhome.
