Very nice new RV Park. Level site with all utilities and surrounded with grass. For those who know the area, the RR tracks in town would not be a surprise. The trains going through all night did not bother us but if you are a light sleeper there are a few crossings that require their horn. We would stay there again when in the area.
A new bath house has been added with private bathrooms that include toilet, shower, and sink. Also Laundry in the same building 2 dollar wash and 2 dollar dry, brand new units. Not only is it less than a mile to the Mississippi River, it is next to three of the best restaurants in the area, J&J BBQ, Cheese Factory, and Beth's Twin Cafe.
The views of the cliffs and the sunsets are incredible. Over 5,000 trees and bushes have been planted, this is a 5 star facility in my opinion.
Newly constructed in 2012, the facility buildings are excellent. This is primarily an open field camp site facility, so very little shade trees have matured. The Nelson Cheese and creamery store is the camp store and check in, which offers an excellent source of cheese and wine, sandwiches, and pizza. The store is about a block away from the camp site, but within walking distance, as well as the downtown bars / restaurants. The Missisippi River parallels the local highway, as well as the train tracks, which does have trains (with whistles) every daylight hour.
