15 RV Parks near Nauvoo, Illinois
Jun 2010 - $24.00
We stayed here three nights. This campground is owned by the Community of Christ (formerly known as the Reorganized LDS Church). Do NOT follow your GPS to get here. Get directions from the manager of the park. It was a nice and quiet place and if you walk down past the large campground hall there is a beautiful view of the river. Stupendous thunderstorm while we were there. The spaces are sufficient. No Wi-Fi or cable TV. We enjoyed exploring the area. We would return. - shovelguy

It was $30 until I complained that site next to me was $15 and then it was changed. This is the only privately owned park in Nauvoo. What else can I say. - yaxche

There are not a lot of choices in Nauvoo for large RV's so you stay at this park even though it is not the best. Sites are small and there are rigs arriving late at night and leaving early in the morning. Trash needed to be picked up, grass needed to be cut, restrooms needed to be cleaned, and roads needed repair. The staff was friendly, the power, water, and sewer all worked, so how can you complain. This is a seasonal park. - Zimectrin

Our site was nice and level. It was in town and easy to access. We were in walking distance of a lake and the Mississippi River. We walked to most of the sites in Nauvoo from our campsite. The park ranger was friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that an employee weedeating the campsites was driving around in his black truck real fast and driving through the campsites gunning his engine. We had kids with us and there were other kids in the camp. This was very rude and disrespectful, but once he left everything else was great. - Zach Drury

Our space was uneven but nice and wooded and quiet. We had neighbors but not very close by. Able to put our chairs out and have lots of room. Pit toilet was yuck and not lit at all. Scary for the little ones. We had a 30 amp plug. Water and sewer were very accessible. I would definitely visit this camp ground again. - Jennifer vos

This is a great place to visit. The park rangers are helpful. This park is in the middle of town. It was the best trip my wife and I made this year. The lots are not very level, making it hard to reconnect and requiring tri-levelers in our case. However the forest is beautiful with eagles in the trees. There is no water on the spots but hydrants scattered around. Take water. Dump station available. The town is a great historic location and the people amazing. If you are interested in the history of the Mormon religion you will find it a great visit. - saxmaninmo

We stayed here for three nights. As was mentioned this campground is operated by the Community of Christ. The campground consists of quite level concrete spots. Gravel roads. Plenty of room to get in any size rig. Two spots down from us was a 43 foot 5er with plenty of room. The WiFi was unusable. It seems they were having problems with their supplier. The gal in the office was fantastic. Very near Historic Nauvoo which is very interesting. We would stay here again if in Nauvoo. - Kalama Traveler

After trying the state park and finding it lovely but up on a big hill and basically closed (no water, but electricity is on), we drove over to this camp. It's a surprisingly nice find. It's a Community of Christ camp facility, but they do not even ask about your religion. It's a large camp with many cabins and a large athletic field (great for dogs), among other things. But they only have maybe 10 RV sites. The sites are very good though - long concrete pads, pull-through with FHU, and very level (what a relief after so many campgrounds that weren't). If there isn't incoming traffic, they will let you leave your RV on site for the day while you go sightseeing in Nauvoo. The roads to the park are narrow but passable and there are some potholes in the driveway so just take it slow. - MNroadie

Pull thru sites with 2 campers end to end required 50 ft power cords. No shade but adequate for the 3 nights stay. I would stay here again. Several of the RV sites have been used to place "cabins" on the pads. - SunflowerTraveler
Sep 2011 - $14.00
Very pleasant. Nothing fancy, but a good price. A bit of train noise. The gravel road is no biggie, just maybe a half mile. No serious washboard on the road. Great fishing in the pond. Caught 6 or so 12" bass in about 30 minutes. Some construction workers staying here in early September. Apparently being foreclosed though with an auction within a couple months. - User988

The road to this facility is about one mile of gravel. While it is fairly well maintained there are still some rough spots, but it is certainly passable. This is a very well designed and very well kept facility. The host lives on site and is very gracious and pleasant. The sites are well spaced and roomy. There are no concrete pads, all of the sites are grass but its good grass that didn't seem muddy. The center section spaces have no trees. Electrical boxes and faucets are in very good condition. What their website doesn't show is a small lake/large pond with 7-8 spaces that backup to the water giving a pristine view of nature. We could give this facility a ten except for two points: quite a few insects and proximity to train tracks (about 1/4 mile away). We counted 5 or 6 trains during the night. While the noise didn't bother us terribly (my wife and I both like the sound of trains) those who are light sleepers may find it challenging to get a good night's sleep. One good thing is there were no full-timers and the campground was fairly empty. For us the benefits outweighed the train noise but it bears mentioning. - kcjonib

The park owner was very helpful. Guided us back in to our site, blew all the leaves out of the site, even took my garbage up to the dumpster. Camp site was fairly level and had some nice trees. The site had a picnic table and a fire pit. We had full hookups. No complaints for $27! - Greyhawk31

The park is nice--has trees and character. The people who run it are helpful if asked. Their WiFi is awful and not park-wide. I couldn't use my cell phone at all. The roads are narrow. Dirt road to get into the park. - Bet

Spaces are extra long, quiet park, nice tall trees, country setting... no cable and wi-if was not strong, you have to be close to the office to get good service. - 69 scotty

We stay here only because we have family here. This is owned by the city and not advertised. The telephone numbers listed is to city hall. The site is mainly used for people that come to our rodeo each year. The sites are all grass and pretty level. The showers are open rooms and the toilets are port-a-potties. This is a "boon dockers delight". - 1dinky

Basic water/electric parking lot campground. Three campground locations one north of Southside Boat Club (3 sites), two east(8 or 10 sites) and a somewhat woodsy area, (3 sites). Do not follow GPS that takes you to City Hall.
If coming from south, take first street on left (2nd or 1st Ave ) immediately past the bridge which traversesthe Mississippi River. Proceed a few blocks to Banks Street, turn left, go over railroad tracks, turn right.
If coming from the north turn right just before the bridge and follow the same directions. Check out which site you want. Pay at the bar in the Southside Boat Club. There are no reservations. The number at Southside is 319-524-7122. They were helpful with directions and basic availability questions.
This park is located directly on the river. Watching barges is interesting. A lot more tending by the city for cleanliness and upkeep would certainly improve ratings. Several workers had trailers in the middle park and were loud at 2 am returning from their shift. However, with all the railroad tracks across the street, that noise was minimal. I did not feel safe to walk my dog after dark, but no one bothered us except one loud mouth "barking" near us at 2 am. The park provided the over night stay we needed.
The signs at each campground only indicate charges: $16 regular, $14 seniors. No other information given. Electrical hookup box had several spider egg sacs. We had a 30 amp, 34' motorhome. Parallel parked in the middle campground immediately to right of the Southside Boat Club. - Proud Rome Georgian

We did not stay at this site, however we drove through and checked it out. It is right along the Mississippi just down the street from the stern wheel paddle boat. Some sites are gravel, some dirt, and some concrete. They have 20,30, and 50 amp hook ups, water that is shared between several sites and no sewer hook ups and I'm not sure where a dump station is. The site sits between the river and a RxR switching yard that can be pretty loud. There's a boat ramp here too. I only added this site because it wasn't mentioned in the reviews of the area at all and to give another option if you're in the area. Contact the City of Keokuk, Iowa for more details. - pumper9x9
