This campground is a good alternative to Pulpit Rock Campground. Since this campground is a bit more secluded you don't have the traffic noise that you'll have in town. Plus, the campsites are more spacious compared to Pulpit Rock where they really cram you in. Randy's has a bar/restaurant onsite which came in handy after seven hours of kayaking when... More

I have been staying at Randys camp for 15 years. They are always very friendly and provide great service for a good price. The previous review should have read the Rules of the Camground. Pretty simple actually. He broke the rules and now he is upset that he got caught breaking them. Like I said , wonderful campground and services.

LaborDay weekend had a great kayaking weekend on the Upper Iowa River. Rent canoes or a kayak and see the bluffs. So cool and relaxing.First come first serve campgrounds. Electric hook up and primitive. Many campgrounds around the area so check them out also.

The staff here is friendly and funny..... Don't expect anything fancy, for sure! We stopped for a beverage and snack after canoeing. Limited menu, but the drinks were cold (in plastic cups) and the chips, fries and cheese curds were good! One stall bathrooms and the shared sink is outside. I think there were two pool tables, as I recall.

Made famous over the years for great camping along the Upper Iowa River. We locals know you can get great fresh food and drinks there. I've had several group gatherings from car tours to high school reunions there. Randy and his wife run a great place and are always friendly.

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
