Great little campground right on the Mississippi river. Site are electric only. Just minutes outside of Grand Rapids. All sites are back in but there is plenty of room to maneuver. We camped at Pokegama Dam Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Campground was clean, well maintained. It was very loud with Highway 2 right next to it and a train track right next to it. Thankfully there was only one night that a train came by. When I camp I prefer a quieter place, more in the wilderness and more space between the sites. This is more of an RV park where people stay in their RV's and watch TV. I probably wouldn't camp here again. We camped at Pokegama Dam Campground COE in a Tent Trailer.

This is a nice little campground with less than 20 sites. The sites are fairly level and we were able to park our 40' into lot #3 without any problems. These are electric only sites but they have a dump station on site. The sites have lots of shade which makes satellite antennas almost useless. There is no Wi-Fi and we were not able to pickup any over the air TV channels. The campground is very close to the highway and railroad and can get noisy at times. Even with these issues we liked this park. It is on the Mississippi River and just feet from the small dam. Most campers fished the river. We would stay here again. We camped at Pokegama Dam Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Super nice Corps of Engineer campground just north of Grand Rapids which is convenient to the local area and its many activities. Shower and bathroom facilities are one of the best we have seen even though they are small. Main interior road is paved and sites are gravel - access to all sites is not a problem for all size RV's. Campground is well maintained and very clean. Nice feature of park is the walking/hiking trail just over the dam and railroad tracks. The only small negative item is the closeness to highway 2 and the train that blows its horn when going by. We would stay here again as its positives out weigh its negatives - one gets used to the local noise as we did. We camped at Pokegama Dam Campground COE in a Motorhome.

This is a nice COE park located right along the Mississippi River. There is alot to do in the area and we easily 'killed' a week here. The only drawback is that this park is very noisy: the trains weren't really a problem but Highway 2 runs right behind the campground. Road noise all day and all night. They do take reservations for about half the sites: there is no additional fee to make a reservation. The park did fill up every night we were here by about 5pm. We camped at Pokegama Dam Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Pretty Corp of Engineer campground right on the headwaters of the Mississippi River. Huge sites with pretty views of river. In October the water is turned off. The dump station is still open, but no water is available. One negative: train tracks are very close; however, we were awakened during the night only once. We would stay here again. We camped at Pokegama Dam Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.
