This is definitely a hidden gem. Right on the river with wide shady sites. If you can, stay in the OB area. Would have given it a 10 but no dog park. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Motorhome.

We had to call owner from laundry where we were to register as no one was there. He showed up promptly and directed us to our site which was cash or check only. He came by later to get the money. Site was gravel, fairly level with other sites nearby. Breaker on 30 amp kept tripping. Owner came and fixed temporarily, but we ended up using a converter for the 50 amp because 30 amp still kept tripping. There was wifi and OTA channels, but not many. Owner was friendly and always available to attend to needs. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Travel Trailer.

Not sure how to rate this park in some ways it is a 9 in other ways a 3. BAD- Winding road thru a local neighborhood to the park, turn past a late night drive thru liquor store to a poor gravel road. Self check in was in the laundry then pay in a lock box at a house down the road, two park hosts both off duty. One of the hosts saw me struggling and came to my rescue. GOOD- Sites are long. level and wide on a bluff overlooking the Ceder river, all FHU's worked fine. River is clean so bring your inner tube and raft to float around, large pond for fishing. Long hiking trail over an old abandoned rail line with some cars left to rust away. Note that some sites are 30 amp only and some 50 amp. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Motorhome.

Stayed 1 night as we where just passing thru. Camp host was very nice and helpful. A pull thru full hook up site was mostly level and quite for a good night sleep. Would stay here again if ever in the area. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Motorhome.

Just stayed one night. Wanted to do laundry so the host put us in a spot close to the laundry which was helpful. Did really see much of the rest of the park. Verizon ok, wifi excellent, site sloping but ok. Quiet. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Travel Trailer.

This is our 2nd time staying here. Good free wifi, numerous channels of OTA TV, 50 amp full hookup pullthrough, sewer, good city water and not so unlevel that a couple boards get you level. This is situated in the middle of town with a convenience store at the entrance of the park. Nice owner and nice people. Only a few trains here and there, so pretty quiet overall. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Fifth Wheel.

We were in a pull through site, but the person behind us was in the same pull thru site. It was an acceptable place to stay for a few days and see the area. The staff was accommodating and helpful. We stayed in a 31' Class C towing a car. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Motorhome.

I'm not sure how we wound up in Charles City but we were happy to find this place. The self check in was confusing to us and without someone to give us some guidance we stayed in a pull through when we would have preferred a back in along the river. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Travel Trailer.

Self registration...owner absent...park was clean and well groomed. Appeared to have a number of permanent residents. There was a lot of construction and truck traffic noise during the day less than a block away. Evenings and nights were quiet. The site we had was OK but there were a lot of the sites in the area we were in that would have been difficult to level due to the terrain. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Travel Trailer.

This park is great! I called because other reviews said it was a self checkin and that the sites weren't very level. The owner said he would meet us and let us pick out a site. He was there and took my husband to pick out one, which was next to their lake and very level. 50 amp, good water, sewer and quite a few tv Channels over the air. Wifi was free but didn't show up where we were...too far,I guess. This is a very pretty park right in the city. Lots of choices with or without shade. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. Our site was t a pullthrough, but the owner said to just drive over the grass when we left, making it a pullthrough. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Fifth Wheel.

OK.....snuggled up against the Cedar River, we really enjoyed our stay here. There are pull-thru slots, as well as back-in & camping sites. If your site has water & electric, it also has sewer. The gracious & friendly host piped in sewer to the rest of the sites last year. We saw bald eagles during our stay. Kayak or canoe the river. Sit by a fire as the stars come out. To be fair, not all the sites are "dead level", but the overall experience was one we are GOING to repeat. We hope others do the same. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

For a "sleepy" little Iowa town, there are actually things in town to see. Go see the Mooney collection of etchings from as far back as the 1200s. Go see the museum.

Watch the trees on Clark St on your way in... stay to the left. Interior roads were dirt/gravel with some dips and potholes (take it slow). Self-checkin at a pedestal about 100 yards down. We called ahead so there was a packet for us with site#, bathroom codes and WiFi code. Sites were gravel pads (2" out) with fair spacing and room for my truck. Utilities placed in the middle of site. (Some "back in" sites seem to have the utilities on the opposite side). Sites had a grass area with picnic table, some were muddy. No noise. WiFi coverage was too weak where we were (OutBack section), but we had 4/5 bars on Verizon Cell. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Fifth Wheel.

Self check in. Grab an enevelope, map and go pick a site. Fill out info, deposit money and you're done. You'll have to call the number provided for bathroom codes. This is a beautiful place. Some sites don't have much shade but many are on the river. There is Wifi but it's password protected. We never thought to ask for a password. Bathhouse seems new and is rustic but nice.

We've stayed here twice, over three years, while visiting friends in Charles City. It's nice, quite, and pretty. There is no "entertainment" other that what you make for yourself. If that is what you're looking for then you will be more than satisfied.

There are basically two halves to this park, the front half by the entrance and the back half by the river and pond. The front looks to be full time residents and overnighters. We always stay in the back, past the registration house. The difference is profound. In the back you feel like you're out in the quit beautiful country side. In the front it feels like a typical "squeeze 'em in" RV park. Surprisingly the pretty back area is not crowded at all.

Some of the best sites you drive straight into, unhitch, and then drive back out. Not technically a pull through, but easily managed with our setup which is 55' total when hitched (5th wheel + truck). The rest are a mix of actual pull throughs and back-ins

The roads are generally good. The only concern is a small but steep hill going from the tent area up to "Northwest territory". *You can easily avoid it if you know about it.* The first time there we went up and lost traction while towing the 5th wheel. We had to back down and get a "running start".

Verizon signal was strong and fast. 4G LTE. Didn't try ATT. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is on the river and in a very beautiful setting. Wish all Passport America parks looked like this one. Would highly recommend this park. Owner very nice and friendly. We camped in 36' MH with full-hook ups. If you don't want full-hook ups, there are sites in the trees and tent camping is next to the river. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Motorhome.
