This is a hard campground to review. It has a unique location on a peninsula (maybe island) in the Mississippi, across from Red Wing Minnesota. But most spots (all the desirable spots) are taken by seasonal rentals. We were in a spot right on the river, but very close to the highway bridge over the river and connecting Minnesota and Wisconsin--noisy all night. The Marina was directly on front of us, but it seemed in bad sharp with very few boats. Red Wing is an active port with a lot of train traffic and noise from the grain elevators, etc. so not peaceful--but a stunning sunrise with a beautiful down river view pretty much compensated for the noise and the "rustic" condition of the overnight campsites. We would recommend Island Campground to those in the area looking for a different kind of one night stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have been seasonal campers at this campground for the past two summers. It is great - plenty of shade, level sites, friendly owners and a lovely view. It is located on a beautiful island in the Mississippi River across from Red Wing, MN. You can sit in your site and watch the boats and barges on the river, just feet away from you. The owners take excellent care of the campground, it is always clean, overhanging limbs are kept trimmed and the interior road is graded frequently. Because of the riverfront location, sewer is not available, but there are two dump stations and they do provide a "honey wagon" service. Sites are pull-in or back-in on grass or gravel. Wi-Fi is available at the office and pavilion and in the nearby campsites. Rate shown is the regular daily rate. (The seasonal rate works out to about $13 a day plus electric). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice older, but well maintained campground. I was in site #3 about 10 feet from the river. The site was extra large. It was relaxing watching all the boats come through the no-wake zone. The campground is in a flood zone, so it's mostly gravel and the electric boxes are on 6' posts. The Harbor Bar and Marina down the road hosts summer concerts, so the campground was very busy. The owners are very nice and accommodating. They only take cash or checks, so plan accordingly. I will definitely return again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
