Nice small campground on the edge of Decorah. Very inexpensive. Lots of shade trees, cold spring-fed creek running through the grounds. Sites are quite close to each other, so if you are looking for privacy - there isn't much here. But if you enjoy making new camping friends, you will like Pulpit Rock. Lots of bike and walking trails, clean... More

This is a great campground. Right on the Upper Iowa River and about a half-hour walk into town. Trails nearby, clean bathrooms and showers, vending, firewood for sale, friendly staff and quiet in the evening for a campground of this size.

You are close to town but you feel like you're out in the wilderness. There are excellent fishing spots around this campground. I would definitely recommend this to anybody wanting a... More

We did not set up a reservation and they were able to accomodate us very nicely just before a very busy weekend. The staff was very nice. We ride Human Powered Vehicles and the campground had access to two routes which we found quite enjoyable, one being very easy and the other being a very serious challenge. The sites were... More
