This is a small beautiful and quiet state park with gravel, and level sites. The Dyas Unit has 45 camping sites (31 with electrical hookups with 30/50 amp), very clean restrooms and showers and dump station and water stations in the park, but not at sites. The campground is in the Dyas unit at 21466 429th Avenue Bellevue, IA 52031. Sixteen dollars is for electric sites; $11 for non-electric. The park manager and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The state park allows you to stay 2 weeks. WE WILL RETURN. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This small, very pleasant park is somewhat remote, but is convenient to the Mississippi River and the town of Bellevue. Most sites have 50-amp power service and some also have sewer connections. Water standpipes are dispersed throughout the campground rather than being located at each site. The park has numerous hiking trails plus several overlooks of the river. There is a good Verizon broadband signal, but no over the over the air television signals were found. Dish users should be aware that some of the sites may be too shaded for good signal reception. The entry to park is from 429th Avenue which runs parallel to US-52. If approaching the park from the south, use the entrance at 193rd Street (42.20432 N, 90.38385 W). Doing this will avoid having to make a very sharp left turn on 429th Avenue (42.22718 N, 90.39840 W). We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice little campground near Bellevue, IA park is in 2 sections the campground is not as visible as the overlook area so be careful. The park is clean, well maintained and out of the way so it is peaceful and quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small state park with concrete interior roads and grass and gravel, fairly level sites. The Dyas Unit has 45 camping sites (31 with electrical hookups with 20/30/50 amp), clean rest rooms and showers plus a dump station. There are water stations in the park but not at sites. The park has two parts. The campground is in the Dyas unit at 21466 429th Avenue Bellevue, IA 52031. DO NOT try to take a large RV to the Nelson unit because the access road is steep with limited turn-arounds. The Nelson unit does have a nature center and butterfly garden. There are 3 overlooks of the Mississippi River, lock and dam #12, and the town of Bellevue with the one in the Nelson unit being an especially good photo op. Bellevue, although small, has several good restaurants; our favorites are the Market Café for lunch and Grandpa’s Parlor for ice cream treats and breakfast! $16 is for electric sites; $11 for non-electric. We camped here in a Motorhome.
