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

Very friendly RV campground. The owner was very helpful and a great guy. We had a level pull-through site with 50 amp service, water and sewer hookups. There is a pool at the campground that was closed as our stay was in October. Bathroom and shower facility are available. This is a well maintained campground that I strongly recommend. - Jo Mo

On site #29. Good wifi and level. Manager walked me to my site. Electric and water are towards the front of the site. No shade at this spot, some sites have trees. I would return. - RVStudent

Nice place. I landed here before I went to HWH to get kick down levelers installed. Nice and shady. It is very easy to navigate and park. Nice pool. I'll stay here again driving across I-80. - Arthur Jackson

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

Overnight stopover for us headed to an Iowa football game. We arrived and departed in the dark, so cannot speak well to all park amenities. We had a reservation, and when we called to say we're arriving late - no problem. Our site was a concrete pad with WES and the bathhouse was close and clean. Would love to return for a longer stay to enjoy the lake. - Cousin Eddy

I have never been dissappointed by COE campgrounds and this one is just as good as others we have stayed in, perhaps a cut above. All sites are concrete pad and very level. Our site was back in, water and electric only. Sites are nicely spaced with no crowding. Pad is wide enough for the picnic table so no mud, sand, or stones to migrate inside. Bathrooms were clean. Toilets and showers are separate with showers very large with a separate dressing area and each one private. Bathrooms and showers are handicap accessible. Only negative was that our Verizon signal was very weak and there is no wifi. Our price reflected our Senior pass with the national parks. - Trainspotter

Just in for 1 night - nice COE park! Paved level pads, we got a FHU, some are 2-way. Lots of grass - needed mowing, but all the rain made it too wet to cut. Overlook CG was wooded, Tailwater West mostly open. Appreciated the LATE check-out time (3pm!). Limited OTA TV, since you are sitting at the base of a massive dam! - Loggenrock

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

Extremely popular COE CG that's physically adjacent to Iowa City. If possible, book dates well in advance. The CG has multiple sections - from forested to open sites. Pros: Sites are mostly spacious and level; beautiful views of the river from many - but not all - sites; extensive walking paths, low daily CG fees - only $10 per/night for America the Beautiful Senior Pass Card Holders. Cons: Sites in forested sections seemed a little less spacious to me and while offering lots of shade did prevent deploying my DISH satellite. - Kona Boy

I would give this beautiful campground 5 stars if the site had been a little more level. 6” side to side difference was a bit challenging. The sites are huge and set up, so backing in was a breeze. - Keith Langdon

This is a typical COE campground. It has sites near the lake and some higher up. Well maintained with a great camp host. The campground is located several miles from I-80. - A hitch and hop
