Experience was good. The couple managing the grounds were quite friendly and informative. Roads in park along with sites need serious fill. Nothing but potholes and deep mud tracks from earlier rains that have not been attended to. Pretty much no shade. Young trees only. We camped at Amana RV Park & Event Center in a Fifth Wheel.

Lovely, huge park, open grassy spaces between very long, gravel sites. Only slight disadvantage was the square corners to get into sites. We camped at Amana RV Park & Event Center in a Motorhome.

The small, old German 'Colonies' were the main attractions of the area. There was a live performance theater on the park. Closest large grocery store was about 25 miles away.

This campground is a rally and festival venue. Grass and gravel sites. All sites laid out in perfect grid. First guy in pulls thru, second has to back. Kind of a parking lot but big sites. Very friendly office staff and escort to site. This place is spotless. Pretty empty this time of year. They spread you out so no neighbors. We camped at Amana RV Park & Event Center in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Right outside of Amana and handy to all colonies. Be sure to visit the woolen mill, Amana meat market and Ronneburg restaurant. There are many pottery and art galleries as well as wineries. Grocery stores are 10 to 15 miles away. We only saw one gas station but it carried diesel and was reasonable.

Almost all gravel streets & campsites. Sites are generally dual sites--back to back. Campground was not busy during our stay in September. FHUs worked fine. No cable, no problem with satellite. Few shade trees. Almost all sites are pretty level, but a few have a crown in the middle, so if this is a concern, check your site before moving to it. Convenient location to the Amana Colonies. 8-9 miles to Coralville Mall, Walmart, chain restaurants, home stores. 16-17 miles to Cedar Rapids. Staff very helpful during our week stay. Camped in our Class A, 45' Entegra and would stay again. We camped at Amana RV Park & Event Center in a Motorhome.

We love the Amana Colonies, and this park is the perfect base. We have been here before when it is packed and they have 4 RVs sharing one pedestal, but in late September, they space you out so the you have plenty of room! Laundry was well maintained and the restrooms clean. They have free and paid wi-fi options but the free was fine for us (using it now...). We camped at Amana RV Park & Event Center in a Motorhome.

Thought booked a week and got 6 days. Had to pay for 7th day when they came by to ask if we were leaving like our reservation. I did not notice the reservation confirmation had 6 nights. When I checked I saw their system took my 7 and made it 6. Park was not crowded and we were not the only ones who were scrambling to pay or leave. Some just left. The staff was great but not sure they understood the issue as they just work there. We camped at Amana RV Park & Event Center in a Motorhome.

The campsites are very level but there is not much shade. They are not close enough to town to be able to walk and leave the rig parked. There is a laundry and a library. We camped at Amana RV Park & Event Center in a Motorhome.

This is a huge RV park - essentially a large meadow with hookups - and has meeting rooms so a lot of people were here for various rallies, training meetings, etc. It is located in the country but close to the Amana villages with good access to Iowa City and a Costco. We had what would have been a back-in site but since no one had booked the site behind us, we were able to pull through. The site was grass but level. There's good gravel roads so we were able to get in a 3-mile walk each morning by walking mostly around the perimeter and main roads of the park (it is big!). We camped at Amana RV Park & Event Center in a Travel Trailer.

They had moved the entrance about a quarter mile down the road from the last time I was here. My Passport American card had expired by 2 days and they wouldn't honor it. The roads into and all around the park are full of pot holes and the highway into the park is very bumpy. Max speed is about 15 mph. The site we were in was very long and we had plenty of room for both the toad and the motorhome. The lady at the desk was pleasant and helpful. We couldn't connect to the wifi and went to the desk to ask for help. They referred us to the company phone number. The company wouldn't answer and asked for my phone number and said someone would call us back. I hung up. All in all this is an OK park. There is a fun place to visit in the town of Amana about a mile away. It is an OK park for over night, or maybe 2 nights. We camped at Amana RV Park & Event Center in a Motorhome.

Bare bones. Very large sites - parked on a big grass field - no trees, no patios, etc. Not crowded due to flooding, so very spacious sites. Gravel roads. We camped at Amana RV Park & Event Center in a Motorhome.

The park is a giant field with the RV sites organized in blocks of 16 sites with a center water and electric hookup that services four of the sites. The sites and roads are dirt and gravel and if there is rain, it can be very muddy. Each site has a picnic table on the grass area separating the sites. The park has showers, laundry and community rooms in the center of the park. The wifi worked and the staff was nice during check in. See our pictures on our blog.

Overall Rating:

This is a well kept campground that hosts many different event through the year. We stayed on one of the few weekends without an event, so it was sparsely populated. All services were in excellent condition. The full service sites only have 20 and 50 amp outlets. An adapter for 30 amp is provided at check-in. Our main reason for staying here is that it is open in April and was fairly close to Cedar Rapids. Instead of following the GPS to get of I-80 at Tiffin and following US-6 to US-151 north. I would get on the I-380 to exit 10 (Swisher) and head west to US-151, the US-151 south to the campground. Much straigher, less hilly, and the hamlet of Swisher is unlikely to suffer from traffic congestion. We camped at Amana RV Park & Event Center in a Motorhome.

This park is well taken care of. With all the room they have the roads could have been made much wider. As it is you kill a lot of grass when it is wet turning into your site. It is nice and quite with perfect access to the colonies. Verizon and At&t signals were good and we were able to use their Wifi. We camped at Amana RV Park & Event Center in a Fifth Wheel.
