Nice park with great view of surrounding countryside. Owners were very courteous and helpful. Would surely return next time we are in area. We camped at Rustic Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a very nice park. Very beautiful setting, we had our own Norman Rockwell setting, looking out on the really neat dairy farm just below the campground. We camped at Rustic Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

They have installed sewer thru out the park. They have leveled the pull thru sites and graveled them and sodded the areas between campsites. Agree with other posts that new owners seem nice and trying to improve the park. We camped at Rustic Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is under new ownership and they are updating the property. All facilities worked. WiFi was good. The staff was friendly. They are still working on the grades in the sites. We had to move once since we could not get level. The bathrooms were older but spotless. The setting is lovely and there is a small chapel on the property. We would come back.

The Location is great - close to Dubuque and other sites in the area. Our site was level but very tight to our neighbor. Worked fine, though. We passed on the very nice-looking (and wider) back-in sites so we could get satellite reception. Most sites are nicely shaded. Lots of amenities with a room off the office with games and books. We will definitely stay here again next time we're in the area. Looking forward to seeing the new owner's planned upgrades, too. We camped at Rustic Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

1st and Main Restaurant and Bar in downtown Dubuque has great food, excellent beer selection, and friendly service.

The Sinsinawa Mound Dominican Sisters make bread for raising money. Their cinnamon rolls are out of this world! Only 10 minutes from the camp.

New owners with a lot of good plans. The pull-thru sites are somewhat close but level. Wi-Fi ok, over air tv also ok. Would stay again. We camped at Rustic Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

New owners took over in March of 2015 and the owner says he is adding sewer lines to the newer pull-thru section this fall and widening the sites. Woohoo! Beautiful campground looking out over fields just 5 miles from Dubuque and a casino. Everything was clean and worked fine. The big rig site we had was level with grass and a picnic table. And yes, your slide gets intimate with the next guy's slide, so close your shades if that bothers you. The older section has all back-ins with mature trees. We camped at Rustic Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful views. Up on a hill overlooking farms. Level sites. WiFi worked very well. Didn't use the bathrooms, but looked and they were spotless. Easy on and off the highway. I'd guess if you are doing Dubuque, it's the best CG around and only a 10 minute drive to Dubuque. We camped at Rustic Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very clean park with great views of countryside. Pull-through sites were easy to navigate, but pretty close together. Internet was not good, really only usable after 9 PM or on weekdays, when not many campers in the park. Very close to Dubuque and convenient for Galena visits. Not having sewer is not a big problem here as owners have portable tank for only $8. TV access over the air got only CBS/NBC/PBS. But others had dishes out and seemed OK. Great bathrooms/showers.

Very nice place. They don't offer full hook up but was only a short wait to dump when we left. Site we had was very level and shady with great water pressure and faultless electrical. Very nice owners. Everything very clean. Just used this as an overnight but would stay here again We camped at Rustic Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Well kept small park. Easy to find. Pull-through sites were a bit tight but nice under trees for shade. Owners were great and had everything we needed (we're kind of new at this). Close to Dubuque if gambling is on the menu. We camped at Rustic Barn RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

My wife and I stayed at Rustic Barn for 3 months in 2012 and 7 months in 2013. (We traveled from California to care for elderly relatives living in Dubuque, IA.) Note that we paid a monthly rate, which was quite fair, so the daily rate that I entered for this review is my best guess as to the normal rate charged at the time. Of course, weekly and monthly rates yield significant savings. The campground is in a quiet rural setting overlooking the picturesque Wisconsin countryside, yet it is only six miles from Dubuque. Back-in sites are quite spacious, while the pull-through sites are certainly roomy enough to enjoy the outdoors at your campsite and to extend your slideouts with no problem (we have camped in both back-in and pull-through sites). There is a real barn that holds the office and activity center (cable TV, pool and ping pong tables, and a couple of arcade games). There’s also a separate building, the Parlor, which can be used for meetings, pot lucks, etc. All very nice. But the most important “Pro” that comes to mind is that the owners are really great hosts; they are very accommodating and take pride in the appearance of the park and the quality of the accommodations. Bathrooms are cleaned thoroughly every day, whether they need it or not; the campsites are nicely shaded and well-groomed; and the water and electrical services are reliable. We’ve been to all the campgrounds in the area, and Rustic Barn is by far the best. It was a great experience and we'll make the trip again in 2014. We camped at Rustic Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pros - long level pull through sites, very clean park, good Wi-Fi if you're close to the office, close to the highway. Cons - poor TV reception on the antenna. GPS will take you in the back way. Don't follow what it tells you. Owner was friendly and we would stay here again. We camped at Rustic Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rustic Barn campground is more suited for tent campers than RV’s. The owner is bit of a wise guy and is a master at giving you as little as possible. While advertising that his pull through sites are 80’ long what he doesn’t tell you is that they are SO narrow you can’t fully extend an awning. He staggers campers to allow a little room, but when it gets crowded it gets really tight. Next thing he doesn’t tell you is that there is no sewer hookup. When asked about it he advises that “good water management doesn’t need it”. Well, good campground management would provide it. To offset the lack of sewer he offers a “honey wagon” service for $8, but only on two specified days. There is one public dump and as might be expected it gets crowded as people are checking out. After waiting in line you find out that the only water supply at the dump is a little squirter. There’s no hose hook up to allow you to flush your holding tank. To insure you use only HIS firewood, if you want a fire ring you have to ask for it. WiFi did not work for us. Not having a sewer hookup I was forced to use his showers. Large, but dirty with hair accumulation in the corners. I planned on staying four days but checked out after two. With the exception of electricity Walmart offers just as much without charging you. We camped at Rustic Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was a great find as Wisconsin does not have that many motorhome parks in the south west area. We ended up extending our visit twice to last two weeks total. The owners were very helpful in all our requests. Our front view was looking over a local dairy farm which was lovely. Great hot water in the clean showers and the bathrooms were spotless. Owner emptied our tanks twice a week and once extra when we asked. We would come here again. We camped at Rustic Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.
