I consider anyone having an attitude such as yours to be someone I hope I NEVER have the misfortune to camp near. You would pollute the place with smarm!

Wretched excess is just barely enough.

Not to worry! I'll apparently be staying at more upscale places.

We stayed at the yacht club a few years back and thought it was a nice place ,but we did not need 50 amp service. It was quite and there was a boat called the Silver Eagle operating out of there.They went and built a big building now.
We would like you to stay over in WI and help us poor WI.Tax payers, IA has enough money.
The whole area is pretty,but you might bring a heavy jacket to keep the weather warm if you don't they will blame you for the cold temps HaHa.
Hope you are on a pleasure trip and enjoy the area.

Hey Doug,

We were thinking about WI. Do you know of any good parks there on or near the line? We'll be staying several days and attending a function at the Julien Inn in Dubuque. I would prefer not to have to drive very far.

It's difficult to get an impression from descriptions in the various campground books, so a local opinion is always helpful.

We ended up at The Rustic Barn RV park at Keiler, WI, just about 8 miles from downtown Dubuque. It is a beautiful RV park, and very quite. It sits on a hill and offers a spectacular view of the surrounding countryside. Each site has 30/50 amps, and pads are packed gravel. Ours was extremely level. Although sewage connections are not available, the owner offered to pump our tanks as needed during our stay.

We also checked The Yacht Club. It recently began offering seasonal parking only and is not open year 'round. I got the impression from a representative that they may be considering becoming a storage yard for boats and RV's.

The River View park in Dubuque offers only electricity. The park is shady and sits along side the MS river behind the greyhound track. We were hit with the stench of decaying vegetation mixed with sewage when we stepped out of the coach. Trees are everywhere, and pads are gravel. Getting in and out of some can be touchy. A chart on a bulletin board outside the office shows those sites that are apparently permanently reserved. I got the impression that this is a popular weekend place for locals and not a place that caters to the traveler.

As we left WI and crossed back into IA on Sunday, the River View park was absolutely full.
