We have been going to this park for 40 years. It is still my favorite. It is well kept up and clean. We still have our family reunions there. We would not even consider a different park.

This is a lovely campground area in a very picturesque and quiet area. It is a very short hop to the city of Dubuque for everything you would need in a city.

Located on the outskirts of Dubuque, Iowa, this is a nice natural area for hiking and some fishing. We visited on 7/19, and the newer Nature Center there is very nice. They have quite a few nice indoor display and exploration areas and a very...More

This place was great. We spent an hour or so hiking and walking around. It was beautiful and peaceful. Loved the scenery, didn't enjoy the gnats. You could probably spend a good portion of the day here if you wanted to. Definitely bring water and...More
