Private and quiet
We stayed in May for a few days with our dog. We picked this place because of the reviews and we were visiting Dyersville (Field of dreams) Loren was a great host, and replied quickly to any questions we had. We loved how private we were. Although our stay was wet and cool, I would stay there again. Very thick bush. I wish we could have seen the river from camp, but it was a quick 2 minute walk to the rivers edge. Thank you Loren.

Feels like country, close to town
Private single RV full hook up along the Iowa River. Less than 10 minutes from Iowa City. Able to walk through the woods with our dogs off leash. Will be even nicer after owner has spring time to clear off the little trails. Would stay again.

Very clean comfortable site. So close to everything in Iowa City yet felt like we were completely alone. Very dark so star gazing amazing

Beautiful and peaceful!
We loved staying at the River Camp RV site! It has full hookups, picnic table, trash/recycling and a large fire ring. The land was beautiful with nice paths through the woods to the river and our dog loved that he could run around off a leash! Loren the "super host" was very friendly, helpful with any questions and we got to enjoy a wonderful conversation about the area and history of the property. We'll definitely come back on our next trip though the area! Lauren, Sascha, and Pepper
