This is a very nice park but if trains keep you awake at night do not stay here. They come through quite often all night long and they blow their whistle all a long the campground area. The hosts are very friendly and you have beautiful views of the Mississippi River. We camped at Grant River COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Golden Age rate for the non-reservable site of $18. We had a nice long level concrete pad, site 16. We could reach the water fill with about 85' of hose. This is our second stay here and this time we had a good Verizon signal and could use both our phones and broadband. The broadband connection was good during the day, but at times (early am) it would only connect at 2G and was not usable. TV via batwing was also much better this time, but would also be spotty at times. The trains have not changed and are still running all night and day. There is a steep drop off crossing the tracks, so if towing with a dolly you should unload towed before crossing them. We are very glad that we came back. We camped at Grant River COE in a Motorhome.

This campground was a little hard to find, but once we got to our site, it was wonderful. We drove past the entrance because there were no signs from the direction we came from. The man that checked us in, definitely enjoys his job. He was very helpful and actually gave us a number for someone that would deliver firewood to our site (we didn't tow a car w/ us). The roads are easy to get around and our site was very easy to back into as it had a small parking area right across the road. We were not right on the river, but across the road. We were lucky enough to have the site across the road empty all weekend, so the view was great. The one drawback was that the area we were in was very busy with traffic: bicycles, walkers, runners, cars, etc. It made our dog a little nervous, so he spent a lot of time inside. It almost felt like we were watching a parade at times. Everyone was very nice and most people said hello while passing, so more of an inconvenience then an actual problem. Next time we will try and stay right on the river so that we are facing away from the road. I agree with prior posts indicating there is a train that goes past often and is quite loud. I actually enjoyed the train. It was loud when sitting outside so you had to stop talking while the horn was going off, but inside our RV we had no problems. We had no problems sleeping through the night, even though the trains were still going past. The park rangers were around the campground at all times, which was nice. They even came by on Saturday afternoon and let us know about a cooking seminar they were providing that evening. It was a lot of fun. I also saw a Potosi police car come through Saturday night: well past dark. It was very nice to see that: helped confirm the park was safe. You can go swimming and fishing anywhere along the river: except at the boat loading/unloading area (by the entrance to the campground). This campground was great, our neighbors were friendly and the view was beautiful. I gave a little lower rating due to the amount of people at the campground, especially on Saturday night: it was very busy. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Grant River COE in a Motorhome.

A nice viually appealing campground along the Mississippi River with easy access, paved roads and sites. Lots of trees through out provide shade for 50A electric only sites that have picnic table, fire ring, and gravel patio. Has only one TV channel and satellite signals depend on site location among the trees. This could be a 10 among like campgrounds, but the park is along side a dual track railroad with crossing. There were at least two dozen trains passing in a 24 period. If the whistle and track noise isn't enough, also know that each train creates a minor vibration in the RV as it passes the campground. Price reflects America the Beautiful card discount. We camped at Grant River COE in a Motorhome.

Very good value with Golden Age. Verizon cell was very spotty, broadband was not usable. TV via Batwing was fair, point it to river first. Potosi Brewery has great food and daily specials. The Grotto in Dickeyville is a must see, no charge, donations only. County road O at WI-133 and US-61 is a very, very scenic drive. We camped at Grant River COE in a Motorhome.

WI-133 road was bumpy. Beautiful campground right on the Mississippi River. The sites are good and wide with concrete pads (could accommodate our 40' quad slide motorhome), table and fire ring. We had 50 amp, water available but not for hookup all the time. There is a dump station. The negative is the train that runs constantly and blows its horn since there is a crossing at the entrance to the park. We camped at Grant River COE in a Motorhome.
