We camped here 2 nights while visiting family in the area. The camping area is pretty and it's very quiet with being off the highway a little over a mile. There is a county park in the same area and is within walking distance from camping area. But I don't think you'd allow young kids to go alone. The manager's wife I spoke with on the phone was helpful and very friendly. While we were here we saw the manager come through the campground several times; we felt he was available and willing to assist us. We couldn't park in the site we reserved because of low tree branches that would have been resting on our 5th wheel. There's quite a few that are in need of a trim. The road into the campground has a one-lane bridge that appears narrow, but we didn't have any problem crossing it. Some of the sites have gravel on them (but not very much)and some were only dirt and grass. The water had a strong sulfur smell. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with lack of use, we were here 2 nights and there were only 2 other campers in the campground. The manager said it had been a slow summer due to the drought. The bathrooms were pretty basic and clean. But there was no soap in dispensers by the sinks, and it appeared no one had dumped the waste baskets for quite a while. There were no outside garbage cans or dumpsters. There is a picnic pavilion and playground equipment at the campsite. This was a decent place. The manager and his wife seem to be nice people and willing to help in any way they can. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a quaint little county park. When we stayed here, it had been under water several weeks ago after a bad flood in the area so things were still a little soggy. We were passing through the area, and we were the only campers there. The sites are a mix of grass pads and rock pads depending on the site. Most sites are shaded, and some of them back to a small stream. Having water available at the site was a plus. Two adjacent sites share a single pedestal, so depending on the site, your utility connections may be on the opposite side of the coach. We could still reach everything using 25' cords and hoses, though. There is nothing to do at this campground. A short walk from the campground leads you to the public park and shelter area which has a well maintained playground. The restrooms and showers were surprisingly very nicely maintained. It appeared to be a newer building. Oddly, there was no place to dispose of trash anywhere in the campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a terrific campground, even though rated low. We are full-timers and drive a 40' diesel with a toad. We are careful about where we go, usually. This camp is an adventure to get to: north from Dyersville about 4 miles then left on Vaske Road for .7 miles, then, just after the "pavement ends" sign, turn left on New Wine Park Lane. (I found no directions anywhere for it.) Continue thru the low trees on a narrow road. Finally cross a narrow one-lane bridge and drop down into a beautiful little camp. It was flooded a month ago, but some sites are graveled again. There's 15 and 30 amp power and water at each site, a dump station at the restrooms. There are lots of tent sites and a playground area; 6 or 8 sites will fit bigger rigs. And, our internet satellite dish works from site 1! Life is good. Dyersville is home to The Field of Dreams, miniature toys at the National Farm Toy Museum, and St. Francis Xavier Basilica - worth the visit alone. We'd come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
