River View Ridge Campground


Since 2008, we have been offering RV and Tent camping along the North Fork of the Maquoketa River in eastern Iowa. FOR THE LOVE OF THE LAND Our love for nature is the reason we started Riverview Ridge Campgrounds. When we purchased this land, we enjoyed walking the timber, floating the river, and watching all the wildlife. It was just too much for just us to enjoy, and we knew that we had to share it. So began our dreams for our Eastern Iowa campgrounds. Riverview Ridge is a full-service campground equipped with RV and tent sites. We are located along the North Fork of the Maquoketa River in eastern Iowa, Jones County, the heartland of America. You'll find us among the limestone bluffs and lush riverbanks near the cozy town of Cascade, Iowa. We offer tube & kayak rentals, hiking/walking through our additional 80-acre terrain, and more. This season, we're again expanding our Eastern Iowa RV parks to meet your growing demand and adding sites, grooming walking and hiking trails, and adding features to our popular river tube rentals. UTV and ATVing are open in our counties. We have private trails open in spring and fall. See the calendar. Stayed with us before? Share your ideas on how you'd like to spend your Iowa camping vacation, and thanks for making us one of the top-ranking Midwest campgrounds.

WE SELL IT HERE AND DELIVER IT TO YOUR SITE ABOUT TUBE RENTAL & TUBE RIDING RULES On average, the tube ride without stopping lasts approximately 2 hours. Generally, people stay on it 3-4 ½ hours depending on if they’re stopping to eat lunch and how many beaches they stop at. We have various comfy river tubes available, smaller tubes with bottoms for small children. Tubes with backs, tubes with bottoms, etc. Most have cup holders too! All our property is on the right-hand side. The return ride is fun. It takes approximately 15-20 minutes in the cart or wagon with padded seats thru the fields and woods. 1. Credit card required on file to float. All minors under 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. No exceptions. 2. All parents/guardians must sign a waiver for any minor to be accompanied by themselves or someone else and for themselves. Everyone signs a waiver. Minors over 16 still need parent waivers. 3. No horseplay with tubes. Watch for sticks etc. You will be charged for holes and rips in tubes. $60 per tube, and you don’t even get the tube! A credit card must be on file to rent tubes whether you pay cash or not. 4. NO GLASS ON RIVER. Do not litter, please. We appreciate your help in cleaning up the river. 5. Quieter riders see a lot more wildlife. Relax! 6. It costs the same whether you bring your own tube or not, but not all tubes are allowed. They must be able to deflate fast for you to carry or be able to fit in our tube hauler. You may not walk back from the pick-up point, and EVERYONE must ride. The farm is NOT part of the campground. Campers only may ride their own tubes to Fawn Creek Beach (about a 15-minute ride) free of charge and walk back, but no further. Violators will lose privileges all year and be asked to leave without a refund. While each park attempts to accommodate your exact spot request, the on-site manager has the ultimate decision for spot placement.
