Rate reflects 50% senior discount. This is a beautiful park, very well maintained, and not far off I-80 near Iowa City. The staff is friendly and anxious to please. We occupied site W-56, which is overlooking the lake. Almost all the sites are back-in, and there are quite a few sites in the non-reservation area that do not appear to be at all level. A number of sites are in deep woods, with no hope of a satellite signal. Two complaints: 1) if you don't have a reservation, you must first occupy a non-reserved site with your rig before proceeding to the office to pay. This can be quite a long walk, or require disconnecting your coach so that you can drive to the office. 2) the only water spigot we could find was up at the dump station, located at the park exit. The swim beach is clean and the water fairly clear. We will stay here again when passing through. We camped at Dam Complex Campgrounds COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Bring your bug spray! No staff or station was available upon check-in. Campground was clean and included many trees for campsite shade. Our campsite was level and included a view of the river. Pull-through sites are also available. Verizon phone was able to get 4G signal. Make sure you pick an open site, as we were not able to get a satellite signal (space E13). Campground within 8 miles of the freeway (I-80) and 15 minutes away from the Coralville Mall, which includes; dining, shopping, theaters, indoor ice skating rink, grocery, hardware store (Lowes) and gas stations. We camped at Dam Complex Campgrounds COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Despite multiple thundershowers, had a wonderful stay in this great COE park. Had one of the few full hookup and 50A sites; nice paved site and patio with surrounding grassy area. Poor Verizon cell service, which restricted use of hot spot also. Would definitely return to this park. We camped at Dam Complex Campgrounds COE in a Fifth Wheel.

I would suggest entering off of I-80 and follow signs to park. Very easy and well marked. We had a pull through site. It was rather small. We got in late at night and thought it would be easier, not much room on either side of us. We walked around and the back ins were very spacious. We only stayed here for just a stop over,and it was just fine for it. It is a very beautiful park and a lot to see and do. I would like to stop back when we could stay longer. We camped at Dam Complex Campgrounds COE in a Fifth Wheel.
