Overall Rating:

Overnite stay. The out of stater price was an $11 fee plus $31/ nite so price wise $42, much over priced. The north cg was itself a nice paved loop with gravel mostly level sites well spaced with electric post at back side of site. Lots of nice grass and trees. Only 2 water non threaded water faucets. Didn't use the bath house. A short trail to a lake inlet. A close by train track. There is a dump between the 2 campgrounds we didn't use. We drove through the south cg long loop which is a distance away and is mostly small short sites for tents, without electricity. The middle of the south loop is basically a swamp. We camped at Merrick State Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

The 322 arce park is located on the Mississippi backwaters and has a boat launch and separate canoe/kayak launch. There are also very reasonably priced canoe/kayak rentals. The park also includes a nature center, 2 miles of hiking trails, picnic areas, a playground, canoe/kayak trail and excellent fishing opportunities. There are 3 campgrounds with a total of 65 sites. There are 22 sites with electric, all are in the north campground where the shower building is also located. The south campground has 35 sites, 18 on the water and 10 with water access across the road. The only downside is that there is a very active rail line running close to the park. You can actually feel the ground vibrate in the north campground. However, we stay here every Memorial day and after a while you get used to the rail traffic. We camped at Merrick State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Kwik Trip in Fountain City that has a small selection of grocery items. If you need more there is a Walmart and a few other grocers in Winona 20 minutes away. The park is located on the Great River Road which is worth a checking out. There are small towns with shops and wineries along the route. Alma, about 15 minutes north has a viewing point for one of the the lock and dams and great views from Buena Vista city park high on the bluff.
