The loop was nearly full. By taking site 8, we got the last of the ones on the MS River side. The price was great at $10 a day-- with senior pass. We may have to start looking harder for these federally run places in the future.

The one loop, as Bill states is near full. The remaining loop is completely empty. Since we have not reserved the campground there may be "regulars" who have made reservations, they would have no idea the rally was going on.

When I booked site 13 right on the river on the 24th I looked around at other dates and the only time the site was booked was Labour Day weekend, so perhaps the campground is not that full late September and everyone booking in the river loop are those attending the rally.

Mississippi River Rally
Adrian, I believe your analysis of the current registrations is spot on. I am familiar with Corps campgrounds in this area of the country and they are not very busy that late in the Upper Midwest camping season. My wife Rita and I are looking forward to attending this rally. LeClaire Iowa, just across the river is quite a little town and the other nearby attractions should keep everybody more than occupied.

As of this date the campground is now half full, or perhaps it is half empty. What ever the case, there are now 16 attendees signed up for camping on the "Big Muddy".

Our favorite good deal. They have a book on their campgrounds that you can often find at their visitor centers.

That is what I think and some have not given their names to Paul. There were about 22 booked lately including second loop.
