We camp in Decorah once a year for an annual canoe trip and used to camp at Randy's. I don't organize the trip so I don't know all the past details, but our organizer stopped booking us there because the owner said our generator was too noisy and several other small interactions where the owner was cross with our group....

My husband and I have come canoeing and camping at Randy's for years, at least once every summer. We opted not to camp there this year because Hrskas had electric sites right on the river and it was right across the bridge from Randy's. We could have rented canoes at Hrskas but wanted to remain loyal to Randy's. Another couple... More

I didn't find the staff rude. I think they are matter of factly type people. We got our canoes, life jackets and oars ok. We had to pay our deposit of $50 by money order in advance which was a pain. Paid $20 for the haul to site. Haul up to the #3 drop off site was fine. Float was... More

We did not stay at the campground this year but have in the past. My review is for the kayak rental and the kayak trip itself. We called and reserved our kayaks the day before. Very friendly. When we got there the woman behind the bar checked the weather for us. It was a little cloudy before we got started.... More

I absolutely LOVE Randy's. He was the most helpful man ever when my friends and I accidentally locked our keys in our car. He spend more time than expected to unlock the doors, which he did successfully. The grounds were beautiful and well kept and we had no issues with noise. I loved that we could go up to the... More

I haven't actually been there yet, but I am not looking forward to my experience. I called to ask about their predictions on the weather and the lady that answered the phone, Laura?, was completley out of line and rude. Pretty much told me that I was an idiot to call and ask someone what the weather would be like... More

This was my first trip to Randy's and I guarantee it will be my LAST. They don't enforce any quite time in the evening. There was some guy blowing a air horn all night one night then someone shooting off fireworks. Don't get me started on the obnoxiously loud music that I'm pretty sure the next county can hear. The...

IF you camp here, do not camp near the bar in the electric sites...it was absolutely horrible. I have camped over a hundred times, and this was the worst! We had kids camping with us...the bar was so loud and so annoying, we couldn't sleep. After it closed down, people still hung around drinking and talking, music from cars...lots of... More

If you camp there don't stay in the electric sight go down below. Very noisy near a bar. We got no sleep and the profanity that they used was not something we wanted our kids to hear. It was the complaint of many of the families camping that weekend. Otherwise Randy supplies the canoes at reasonable rates and great service.... More

The views are breath-taking, but the camp left something to be desired. The portajohns were always clean, but there were no trashcans available, so people tossed their beer cans on the ground. Expect loud country music blaring from someone's truck, hunting dogs running through your camp (my tent got peed on 3 times), and people yelling obscenities into the wee... More
