12 Parks near Tipton, Iowa
Aug 2007 - $7.00
Great stopover east of Iowa City about 4 miles off of I-80. County park along the Cedar River. Very open with 30 amp service. Relaxing environment if you just want a campsite without any of the extras. $5 for no electric, $7.50 with electric. Can't beat those rates. Watch the river though if there is a significant amount of rain upstream. It can rise rapidly up to the campsite area. - Texas Mooseport

We drove in after reading the Good Sam ratings...boy was that wrong! Made a loop and left. We did NOT stay here, the place just did not appear inviting. The cost of $1 was ONLY entered so that I could leave this review, we did NOT stay here.
We were drawn to this RV park by the Good Sam ratings, which were Facilities 9, Restrooms 9.5 and Appeal 9. It was near dark when we arrived at the location and the general appearance was not good. I would rate it at maybe a 5 or 6 for general appearance. Most of the campers appeared to be permanent and there was nobody outside or at the registration area (it was later when we arrived). We were tired and decided to try another park in the area. I will say that when we called earlier in the day to see if there was a site available, the person that I spoke to was very nice. - BuckeyeTravels

Needed an overnight near July 4th so we had slim pickings at reasonable rates. Location near Iowa City.
Dusty access road right next to I-80. Water hook-up not near my coach connection, so I did not hook up. 30 amp power OK. Dump at top of hill. Office staff OK. Would not stay here again. - john rv

The highway noise kept us from getting any sleep! The "overnighters" are put in rows literally within a stone's throw of the Interstate highway. We might as well have been parked in the median... We stayed here to have work done on our coach at HWH Industries (leveling jacks/slides); but, we will never stay here, again! - luckydog

This is a very well kept older former KOA. Sites are not terribly close together. Sites are a little unlevel because the land is hilly. Water pressure is low but other utilities are good. There is a nice pet area and playground. There is also a pool. Normal price is $35 and they take GS. However they lowered the price to $27 for the fall. Next door is a BP station with diesel truck pumps. Great bonus! - The Griffins

Stayed 2 nights waiting for repair service appointment @ HWH.
Very park like setting,No litter/No trash & the lawn was immaculate.
We are a 40' Foretravel DP with toad and had several sites to choose from. No it was not perfectly level but we made do.
Electric was 126 & 124 per leg on a 50a hookup.
No issues getting satellite coverage.
didn't hook up to water or sewer, but they were conveniently located. - Saddlesore

Although an older park, this place is just perfect for an over night stay. Most sites are quite level and easy to get in and out. It is close to I-80, so traffic noise might disturb some. Once we bedded down for the night, we had a great night sleep. Office staff was very friendly and check in was a breeze. - cbay

This campground has been around for along time. It's at river level and gets flooded out almost every spring. Which is the reason for not having water or sewer at this time. Its a very clean park with level sites. You get a free stack of fire wood upon arrival. Water activities such as tubing and canoeing are offered. - rving4fun

Had a great site W49 at this COE campground. Situated on Coralville Lake, IA, this was a great pick for an overnite on our cross country trip on I80. This campground would be a great camping destination. 2 bars on Verizon. Our site was electric only. Gravel site with paved interior roads and grass between sites. We backed up to the lake for a gorgeous view. - smitty12

Level site, clean power, very nice campground. Did not use bathrooms or showers. Easy drive off of I-80. Excellent value with America The Beautiful card. - be rob

This is another great COE park. The staff was courteous and helpful. If you do not have a COE book, get one. The parks can be difficult to locate. The standard fee here was 20$, but with a "Geezer Pass" it was 10$ and if you are eligible and don't have that card, get one. We were only looking for a shower and an overnight with electric as we didn't or want anything more. The setting is beautiful. - Matt_C

We had a site in the Linder Point campground. It had a cement pad which was just large enough for our camper and the truck. The hookups were all okay and in the right place. We were right at the entrance but were not bothered by any traffic. Plenty of room for us to sit away from our neighbors. We had several OTA channels and access to our data carrier.
Nice campground but there is a newer one along the river that seems much nicer. Would try and stay there on another visit. - John Borajkiewicz

Rate reflects 50% senior discount. This is a beautiful park, very well maintained, and not far off I-80 near Iowa City. The staff is friendly and anxious to please. We occupied site W-56, which is overlooking the lake. Almost all the sites are back-in, and there are quite a few sites in the non-reservation area that do not appear to be at all level. A number of sites are in deep woods, with no hope of a satellite signal. Two complaints: 1) if you don't have a reservation, you must first occupy a non-reserved site with your rig before proceeding to the office to pay. This can be quite a long walk, or require disconnecting your coach so that you can drive to the office. 2) the only water spigot we could find was up at the dump station, located at the park exit. The swim beach is clean and the water fairly clear. We will stay here again when passing through. - papafox

Great COE park below the dam on Lake Coralville. Full hookups and 50 amp electric in the area where we stayed, Tailwater West. Beautiful paths to walk on and explore. Don't miss the miles of nature walk off of Linder Point. Lots of people fishing, both campers and day use. Clearly a vibrant recreational area for the people near Coralville/Iowa City. An on site Marina with boat rentals, a nice beach area roped off above the dam, several boat ramps in the lake and on the river below the dam. Just a 5 minute drive into town with a full service mall, including a movie theater and an ice rink, and any restaurant or grocery store that you might need. We would recommend this site to any rv'er that we know. Easy to get to and would be convenient for even an overnight stay. Once in the park, it was slightly confusing how to get registered. You drive directly to your site, then, instructions state to check in to a certain location within an hour. We didn't know that going in. It would've been helpful. The Assistant Director of the park was a great guy and got us all straightened around. - themom3

Beautiful park! We used a back in site that supposedly had a "slight" slope. We never did get quite level. The pull through sites were worse. There was a large motorhome on one that the front wheels were off the ground and looked like they could have used a ladder to enter the door. But other than the sites not being level, it was a pleasant stay and family oriented. - User781

The showers are private and very clean. Sites are a bit tight for long 5th wheels. Trails are very nice. You must reserve early for full hookups because there are very few. - Rascal123

This is another great COE park that is very popular on weekends. Our site was a little tight and very close to the road, but we managed. There are plenty of much nicer and larger sites, but we had reserved sight unseen. Now that we have been there we would look at sites around #120 area. There is a very nice beach and boat ramp, and boat rentals nearby. Beautiful drive into park, a bit twisty, but no problem even pulling a big trailer. Definitely a family oriented place. We will likely return. - lc47

ACORE (American Council on Renewable Energy) facility, beautiful, very nice campground and staff. Space was perfect. Hosts were very accommodating. - Bajadrmr

A nice state park, a little on the smaller side. To get turned around it is very tight. Sites are nice and level with not much privacy between you and your neighbors. I would probably not stay here again. - PackerFanRick

We stopped here for one night while traveling, sites were nicely laid out and fairly level. - VACHZHD

This is a small state park off US-151, NE of Cedar Rapids, and has just 26 sites, about half of which have 30-amp electric hookups. You may well find yourselves the only ones there, but reservations can be made on-line, follow the link on the Iowa Parks website. The campground is well shaded. Only a few sites are level, but most are within limits for an RV. A small golf course is adjacent with the clubhouse serving breakfast & lunch if you want to "eat out". VERY quiet at night. - SkyparkJohn
