Rustic Barn RV Park – Other reviewers at rvparkreviews.com
The Lowe’s overall rating = 8 out of 10 stars
Noise level and overall “feel” of the park?
This campground was far enough off the highway (151) to be quiet. It’s a
small park with RV’s of all types and sizes moving through. We stayed
for over a week, and we liked it a lot.
Road and site access/type?
Gravel roads and gravel sites. Easy access and parking for even the
Spaciousness/levelness of sites?
Didn’t even need our jacks. The double-wide pull-through sites had
back-to-back utilities, so if we had gotten a neighbor it would have been
very tight. Fortunately, we were the only ones in the site (#40) during our
stay. You may want to consider asking in advance for a single back-in
site if you don’t want to take a chance of getting “doubled up” with
another RV. The pull-throughs were long enough to accommodate our
rig and the car.
Utilities and WiFi/cell reception?
The 50-amp power was strong and water pressure good. No sewer at the
sites, but the owner provided a portable pump out service every few days
for just $8.00. The Verizon signal to our cell phones and MiFi was good.
Picnic table and/or fire pit?
Both, plus a small patio at the entry door.
Facilities – bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
Since there was no sewer at the sites, we showered in the restrooms
several times to conserve our tanks. The bathrooms and showers were
nice, and cleaned each day. The laundry room was also nice and we did
laundry while here.
Pet and/or kid friendly?
Pet friendly for dogs on leash, with a large grass field for them to run in.
No pool for kids, but there was a game room and space for them to ride
bikes around the park.
Bike/walking trails nearby?
No trails directly from the park. We walked the nice Riverwalk in
Dubuque (15 minutes away), and there was a great bike/walk trail in
Grocery stores and other services nearby?
A small grocery store was only 3 miles away, and many stores and
services in Dubuque.
We liked this park a lot – it didn’t flood during the hideous rains that
occurred while we were here. It’s small and relatively quiet, and we
got tired just watching the owner working hard every day to keep it nice.
This is where you want to stay if visiting in the Dubuque/Galena area.
