Although most reviewers have mentioned the shuttles, it should be emphasized that this park is perfect for RVers without a "tow", as the shuttles take you not only throughout the park but into the small town nearby. Even without showers, the price can't be beat! Plan a two-night stay to fully enjoy the park's walks and scenery.
Sleepy Hollow is a "specialized" private campground/RV park that primarily caters to the gigantic annual EAA Convention/Fly-in, and is located immediately outside the function's main entrance. They also open for other summer "happenings" in the Oshkosh area or on-demand for group functions. Unlike the EAA's adjacent Camp Scholler (see reviews), Sleepy Hollow provides 50-amp electric (a life-saver in the hot humid Oshkosh summer!). There is water hookup, but no sewer. Pump-outs can be arranged. Sites are quite tightly packed but most are fully shaded and overall the facility is very pleasant, certainly more so than the EAA open field alternative. "Semi-portable" bathrooms and showers are provided and while not fancy are kept quite clean. Most clients are RVers but there are tent sites and a few very basic "cabins" that are air-conditioned. Reservations well in advance are essential and for the EAA function you must book multi-day, either full week or first half / second half. For RVers, this is by far your best bet at EAA Oshkosh.
Takes a sharp eye to find this place, even though it is immediately adjacent to the I-70 business loop, because their directions say "100 yards" when they should say "20 feet" (turn onto "F Rd" and IMMEDIATELY turn right, NO signs). When you do get there, though, you find a very nice RV park with all the usual facilities including a swimming pool that really felt great on a July evening. Staff was friendly & efficient. There is shopping nearby, plus several eating establishments if you want to go out.
Boysen encompasses a large lake with several campgrounds, we stayed at the Tough Creek facility, which is about 10 mi. N. of Shoshoni on Hwy 20. Tough Creek is a minimalist-type place, no hookups, lots of room, a few trees. Only facilities are tables, BBQs, toilets and a little playground equipment for kids. Primarily, this is a campground for boaters & fishermen, but it worked well as an overnight for us. They told us it can get hot, cold and windy, but was OK when we arrived in August. This is some pretty backwoods country, podner!
Full-service RV park convenient to I-80. Clean, quiet. Average sized sites width-wise, all paved interior roads, numerous trees, nice pool. Shopping, dining nearby. Staff friendly & helpful, just a nice park, no complaints :-)
This is a small state park off US-151, NE of Cedar Rapids, and has just 26 sites, about half of which have 30-amp electric hookups. You may well find yourselves the only ones there, but reservations can be made on-line, follow the link on the Iowa Parks website. The campground is well shaded. Only a few sites are level, but most are within limits for an RV. A small golf course is adjacent with the clubhouse serving breakfast & lunch if you want to "eat out". VERY quiet at night.
Roomy park, some trees, large level sites. Not fancy, but a clean & friendly family-operated park. Small snack bar, convenience store area, lounge with big-screen TV, pool. Convenient to I-80 but away from road noise. Strategic Air Command museum just down the road, worth a look.
Park is split into two sections, the older original park which has some shade trees and a newer section which does not. The more desirable shady section is reservation only (same price, so if you can, pre-reserve and ask for the shaded side). All roads and pads are paved and have full hook-ups with cable TV. Sites are not huge but certainly adequately sized. Casino, food, etc. are a short walk away. Excellent value park if you are passing through, or stopping to contribute to the casino!
Large state park with two campground areas, one on a wooded island and the second a half-mile or so "inland". Our campsite was on the island and it was delightful. Large sites, heavily wooded, with electric available (water spigots, no sewer, dump at inland site's entrance). Bike and walking paths wind around the island. Rental canoes are available (pre-booking suggested). No formal "swimming area" but you can walk or bike to suitable access points. Camp host available for information or advice. Great kick-back place for an overnight or several days.
Adjacent to the highway only a mile north of Custer, this is a reasonably nice park with clean facilities and a small "convenience store". However, there were issues. There are a handful of pull-throughs (all taken when we were there), but otherwise the layout is very tight for anything over a medium size rig. Small spaces are served by narrow, confusing & unmarked dirt pathways winding tightly through trees that are much too close to the "roads". We had pre-reserved two nights plus one of their advertised rental cars for sightseeing, but the car turned out to be "not available" when we arrived.
