We need a stopover point on a trip from St. Louis to Minneapolis and this was perfect. It's just off Highway 218, easy in and out driving through the small town of Hills, IA. Our Verizon phone and mifi worked fine. The campground sits right along the river, and a few people pulled in for fishing in the evening. A couple other transient campers came in and out during our mid-week stay. It's first come first served, and self pay. When I called the number listed a helpful woman told me based on fees they collected that there should be space - and there was. - Roaming Together

We enjoyed the campgrounds. A lot to do for the kids (and adults) including, basketball, tennis, volleyball, baseball and the city pool is right there! Shower house is clean. We also became aquainted with the local chicken, which we named Fred. Amish buggies are common. We got some "Squeaky Cheese" at the cheese factory which was fun. Would return to this campground. It is clean and well kept. Some campsites in the center were kind of close but others on the outer ring were quite spacious with lots of elbow room. - Pilot1769

This is a very clean park. Kalona has a great thing going for them. The city had a ball tournament Memorial weekend. We stayed there after it was finished and got a nice site. - 1dinky

We visited folks in the area. The sites are end-to-end sites with a back-in requirement if not the first to that lane. Very close to the other sites. Electric 30 amp service was good. A single dump station for the area, which is hard to find. It is located at the corner of the check-in podium. You check-in by filling out a form and putting money in a pole with a slot. Internet is available for a fee through the area provider. No cable. About a dozen air channels available. Good for kids, as it is right in a park. Playground near by. Casey's nearby with the best pizza from any gas station. Very narrow aisles and it will block your ground satellite dishes. Price is right for passing through town. Would stay again. - Redtime21

We were traveling across Iowa to Omaha and needed an overnight stop. Called and talked to the owner and he held our reservation with a phone number. When we arrived, the owner was in the office and was very helpful. All sites are gravel and grass with fire rings. It had rained most of the week before we arrived that there was a fair amount of soggy grass and mud. We were camped near the office which was lower than the other sites, so it was a bit soggier. (We've been in worse!) The sites are roomy and all pull through. Shower areas are clean. We did not use the laundry, so can't comment on that. - WisconsinMiniLite

We had a very pleasant experience at this park while visiting our son in Iowa City. The owner was very accommodating and just a down to earth person. We will certainly stay here again when visiting from NC. - Gweninthewind

Great stop for 7 am HWH appointment as it is an easy ten minute drive east on I 80. Easy access and several long pull through sites for big rigs. Talked to the owner on the phone, never saw him, easy self check in. Safe, clean, friendly, lots of dog walking areas, and quiet. - barbielab

We stayed here in a tent on Labor day weekend. Park itself is just okay. They have a lot of level sites, but everything is grass. Our campsite was rutted from an RV that either got stuck in the mud, or just sank in. They only have electricity to each camp site, no dumps. The dump site looked like it would be a challenge to get into, if it was at all muddy.
There are a number of campfire rings around, but not one for each campsite. I saw a few picnic table spread around, but again, not one for each camp site.
The worst part of this camp ground is the bathrooms. They do have high iron in the water, but that is no excuse. It has been a long time since I stayed in a park with such terrible bathrooms. They were filthy dirty, and didn't look like they had any attention for quite some time. The bathrooms appeared to not have had any maintenance for a long time, and certainly no upgrades.
I also didn't see any staff around. That being said, I didn't spend much time at the park, so they could have been in later on.
We will not be staying here next year, if there are any other options available. - John316

Let me start out by saying this park does have WiFi, however you have to pay to use. There are 4 sites per electric pole but only room for 2 rigs. Parking is on grass, but fairly level. Dump station a different set-up, it's a pull in and back out. It's not user friendly. Stayed there with a club, as a single unit I would not return. - rving4fun

This is a beautiful camping spot, however it is rather confusing to make reservations online. There are 5 campgrounds, very few with full hookups. We couldn't get a full hookup online, only electric, so not sure if that can only be done once you arrive at the campground. It seems that the 'electric only' sites are available when searching sites online. When you get your site number, it is in a shorthand code, so be sure to print the map off their website so you know where to go. There is no legend for the code on their site but it's pretty straight forward. The directions on their site tell you that West Overlook Rd. goes to the park entrance. This is only true if your site is at this particular campground. There was nobody to help at this entrance's office. There was a sign that tells you to 'find your site' then come back to register or fill out paperwork there if nobody is in the office. Many campers don't understand that, especially if they made online reservations and paid online for their spot. We were lucky to find someone from the area that was camping in West Overlook and they led us to our site, which was clear across the other side of the dam. Later in the evening the park ranger came by and told us we had to go to the office to register so that we could get a tag to hang off the rear-view mirror in our car. Needless to say the check-in process was frustrating. That being said, it was a beautiful site (we were in Tailwater East) and campers here were there to enjoy nature. There were no motorized vehicles, other than cars. We would camp here again now that we know how it works. - Ro&Don

This is an impressive COE complex with lots to offer but they need better signage. We made our reservation on recreation.gov and received an email confirmation with our site number but no specifics on check in procedure. It turns out you need to check in at "The Shack" in West Overlook Campground. We appreciated our paved level full hook up pull-through site in Tailwater West and the recycling. - Our Rolling Home

First my only complaint. Signage here is really lacking. It is very confusing on getting to your site and how to register. You need to find the West Overlook Entrance Station to register. But don't go there first. First you must find you site then go to the station. I did not see ANY signs explaining that procedure, except at the West Overlook Entrance Station. Going there first, with a large RV could be a mistake. Look for a map of this campground that you can print on www.recreation.gov. Where to register is mentioned on that map. But in VERY small print. The COE really needs better distribute this information. BTW, if you are using the America the Beautiful pass you need to bring that with you when you register. Otherwise you will be charged the full price for a campsite. No pass - no discount! We camped in the Tailwater West loop. Bring a water pressure regulator. The water pressure varied between 100 psi to 125 psi on the input side of my water pressure regulator. Sites in this loop are well maintained, concrete pads and grass mowed. The bath house in this loop was clean, but not up to the cleanliness of other COE campgrounds we have visited. Both Verizon cell and data were adequate, 5.09Mbps download and 2.51 Mbps upload. There are nice walking trails in the area. - ETB

Great COE park below the dam on Lake Coralville. Full hookups and 50 amp electric in the area where we stayed, Tailwater West. Beautiful paths to walk on and explore. Don't miss the miles of nature walk off of Linder Point. Lots of people fishing, both campers and day use. Clearly a vibrant recreational area for the people near Coralville/Iowa City. An on site Marina with boat rentals, a nice beach area roped off above the dam, several boat ramps in the lake and on the river below the dam. Just a 5 minute drive into town with a full service mall, including a movie theater and an ice rink, and any restaurant or grocery store that you might need. We would recommend this site to any rv'er that we know. Easy to get to and would be convenient for even an overnight stay. Once in the park, it was slightly confusing how to get registered. You drive directly to your site, then, instructions state to check in to a certain location within an hour. We didn't know that going in. It would've been helpful. The Assistant Director of the park was a great guy and got us all straightened around. - themom3

Tent camp sites 12 & above are in the trees, more secluded; 11 & below are in more of a grassy meadow with only a few trees. You check in at the RV campground. Clean restrooms & showers. Devonian Fossil Gorge way cool (short visit.) Make sure you have the GPS coordinates to find it. - CleanAndSafe

We stayed at the Tailwater West campground at the Dam Complex COE. The weather was a bit cool, and the water was a bit high on the river outflow from the dam. The campground, however, was excellent. We had water and 50 amp; there are also sites with sewer. The campground is not easy to get to from I-80, but it was nice once we were there. There are multiple camp sites as part of the Dam Complex. We would love to come back to this site in the summer, as they were getting near the end of the season when we were there. Iowa City is about 10 minutes away, with lots to do in the city. The campground has trails, fishing, picnic areas and a fossil gorge for exploration. - SandmannRV

Beautiful well maintained park. We stayed here in a travel trailer and the price reflects our golden age past. Very quiet, about 6 miles from Iowa city. We were visiting family and will definitely come back. Only electricity is available at the campsite, but fresh water and a dump station is provided and very convienent. - Sharlou

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. - papafox

Linder Point Campground has two sections. The full hook-ups have a concrete pad and are all close to the shower house. If you get electric only the sites are gravel (expect to do some leveling) but are about as spacious as it gets in a campground. This campground is not as close to the beach as the West Overlook but is still within walking distance. When we camped here it was very quiet, great shower house and a first rate system of hiking trails. Bicycle trails are right down the road as well. Would definitely camp here again. - Dan Ratcliff

We stayed at the Linder Point area. Site was long but please watch large limb overhang. If you have a tall unit, as we do, if not very careful it would cause damage. - phyllen

We had a site in the Linder Point campground. It had a cement pad which was just large enough for our camper and the truck. The hookups were all okay and in the right place. We were right at the entrance but were not bothered by any traffic. Plenty of room for us to sit away from our neighbors. We had several OTA channels and access to our data carrier.
Nice campground but there is a newer one along the river that seems much nicer. Would try and stay there on another visit. - John Borajkiewicz

We stayed in the Tailwater West section of this campground. (There are at least 4 sections, West Overlook, Tailwater West, Tailwater East and Cottonwood. ) Tailwater West has about 20 sites and seems tailored for big rigs. There are two pull thru sites and the rest are large back-in sites. There is no office at Tailwater West. After arriving, you need to drive over to West Overlook to check in. The dam is right "above" our site and we could hear water rushing by all night. A clean, safe, friendly Corps of Engineers campground. And a great value at $13 using the Senior Pass. - User3581

We had a beautiful site on the lake, electric only. There is a dump station on the way out. The bath house had 3 toilets & 2 shower stalls. There isn't a convenient place to dump your garbage, but we were only there one night, so not a biggie. Make sure you follow the directions on the website, as the GPS leads you to the visitor center in the wrong direction. - Capt.Deb

We love Coralville Dam Complex!! Great camp sites and fishing is in walking distance or you can drive to more fishing areas. People are friendly. There is no water at campsites but you can fill tanks at dump station if you don't want to haul water while traveling - Carla Schillig
