Reserve sites are premium sites first come sites are good but few. Water is located at the dump station and the dump is located on the right side before you get to the front gate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I'm a little confused about the "music and bands," and ruined weekends? I live in Iowa City and we camp at West Overlook regularly. Never have had a problem, ever! The only thing I notice as a problem, and this is nation wide, is that it is very tough to get into on the weekends. Any site that is reservable, is reserved. Makes it almost impossible to do the "let's go camping this weekend" thing. We do a lot of during-the-week camping and commute back and forth to work, stop at the house daily, mow the lawn, etc., and still feel like we're on vacation. We highly recommend this campground, but make a reservation! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice campground (Army Corps), however, be aware that a day use shelter house is adjacent to the campground. The rangers allow low music, even bands, to play at the shelter. We have had two weekends ruined because of this, and will not return to this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
