Noise level and overall “feel” of the park?
This park is next to a road that is fairly busy during the day, but mostly
with car traffic and not large trucks.  It was quiet at night, although some
of the “campers” were full-time workers and drove out early in the
morning.  There was also an occasional train going by not too far away.
The owner was a wonderful and accommodating woman who did
everything she could  to see that people were comfortable.  One of the
best hostesses we’ve encountered!

Road and site access/type?
Roads were gravel.  Most transient RV pads were concrete, and there
were several other sites consisting of gravel with some concrete for
smaller RV’s.

Spaciousness/levelness of sites?
Very tight spacing between sites.  Hope for a nice neighbor at this park!
Fairly level.

Utilities and WiFi/cell reception?
Power was strong, and water pressure was very high.  Don’t forget your
pressure regulator.

Picnic table and/or fire pit?
There was a picnic table on a concrete pad, and fire rings were available
and delivered upon request.  The office sold firewood at a very
reasonable price.

Facilities – bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
The laundry room consisted of a single washer and dryer, and a small
folding table.  The bathrooms and showers were old, but clean and
smelled good.

Pet and/or kid friendly?
Both – there were several large fields where people could take their
dogs.  There was a pool and some apparatus for the kids, but we were
there during off-season so we didn’t see any crumb-catchers.

Bike/walking trails nearby?
There was a public park right across the street that we could ride our
bikes through it to access a nice paved path going toward town.  The
same path can be walked, of course.

Grocery stores and other services nearby?
There was an excellent Hy-Vee store just 4 miles away, other major
services and shopping were in the same area.

Comments:
Really not much to do here.  The waterfront is more industrial and not
for walking along to enjoy the view.  Not a lot to do in town, although
there was some interesting architecture in some buildings and we drove
along their “architectural tour”.  We enjoyed a riverboat dinner cruise
on the Mississippi, it runs out of Hannibal which is about 30 minutes
south of Quincy.  Although this isn’t a great park, I’m giving it a higher
rating because of the great owner/manager who even let us wash our
RV while we were here.  It was also nice to have access to the hiking/biking
trail.  In summary, I would say that Quincy is more of a stopover than a
destination town.
