Welcome To Buffalo Creek Bluffs 
Your Home Away From Home!

We are a small, private campground for folks that want to find that special place to park and leave their rig to enjoy it year-round. We have just seven, full hook-up (30 & 50 amp), pull-through sites (except for Site 1) along Buffalo Creek for RVs, tiny homes and other approved campers on over 35, mostly forested acres. Our max occupancy is just 21 people... on over 35 acres of land! 

Buffalo Creek Bluffs is the secluded get-away you've been looking for!!

Our guests have access to over 35 acres that include:

  • FOREST PLAYGROUND: Nearly 28 acres of forest enveloping both sides of Buffalo Creek


  • LARGE CAMPSITES: Campsites are scattered among seven acres that are more open, with seven full hook-up, shaded campsites (not in floodplain) that are 1/3 to 1/2 half-acre in size!

  • FISHING: A fully stocked catch and release fish pond

  • FLOATING: Nearly 1/2 mile of Buffalo Creek to play in, fish in, float in, or kayak/canoe (there are several put-in and pick-up sites beyond BCB boundaries allowing for longer floats);

  • TRAILS: Over 2.5 miles of maintained forested trails for walking, jogging, riding, or just chillin'

  • DOG PARK: A nearly 1.5 acre area for the puppies! In April 2024, we planted and fenced in over 450 trees that's perfect to let the pups stretch their legs. Just remember, the fencing is good at keeping the deer out, but is no match for an escape artist doggo! It's more of a visual barrier for them. We also ask that you keep the pups from chewing on and pulling up trees and tree guards.

HORSESOE COURTS: Two shaded courts (sand) with horseshoes included. Horseshoes can be found hanging on the backside of the north backboards or in the Tool & Toy shed. The onsite manager is always looking to slip away from the work to be done, so feel free to ask him to throw if you need a partner! ;)

FRISBEE GOLF!!!: Just added in 2024! We have nine portable 'targets/holes' and at least 10 full sets of Frisbee Golf Frisbees (drivers, mid-ranges and putters). We tend to keep a few of the targets up at the Tool & Toy shed for you to put anywhere you like (except near other campers, of course) and a few targets scattered throughout the forest and on the beaches. However, if you want to create a true 9-hole course, we are here to help!

TOOL AND TOY SHED: A tool and toy shed is also onsite to help alleviate packing issues before you come out. We have 2 adult kayacks, 2 kids 'sit-on-top kayaks, frisbee golf nets and frisbees, lighted cornhole sets, golfing games (golf balls and right and left-hand clubs available), volleyball, badminton, bocci ball, fishing tackle (lures, but no bait), plenty of lawn chairs, 1 gas grill, garden carts, electric mowers, pruners, saws, extra RV hoses and other RV accessories, toolboxes with ratchets, wrenches, hammers, screwdrivers... and on and on. Most everything you need is here if you want to save space in your RV. Just give us a call, text or email if you want to know if we have something specific. Everything is free to use for our guests! We just ask that you replace anything you keep (consumables like screws, nuts, bolts, etc.), or break. Donations for things you keep, break or would like to see in the future... AND suggestions can be placed in the slot on the shed labeled 'Deposits.'

  • SANDBARS/BEACHES: Several wide, sandy beaches along the Buffalo, perfect for afternoon picnics and evening campfires;

  • NATURE: An abundance of flora and fauna... including an albino buck that makes an appearance every now and again

  • On-site, 24-hour manager

  • Free, fresh eggs from our coop (based on availability)

  • Firepits and picnic tables at each site with communal firepits scattered throughout the campground;

  • extra picnic tables and a portable firepit available at Tool & Toy Shed

  • Areas designated for 'after quiet hours' get-togethers to visit with friends just a little longer, without bothering your neighbors

  • Centrally located and less than an hour from Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Vinton, Maquoketa, Waterloo, Oelwein, Independence, Elkader and Dubuque.
