Quincy, IL

Driftwood Campground – Other reviewers at rvparkreviews.com

September, 2014

The Lowe’s overall rating = 8 out of 10 stars


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.

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.
