Our common amenities are available to all our guests. Whether you sleep in a 50’ Class A or a $29 pup tent from Walmart, you are our guest!

So your car or tow vehicle is an EV. Thank you, you are helping reduce carbon emissions. As of April, 2023 there are no known EV charging stations in Keokuk. Unfortunately, we do not have plug-in charge adapters on site but we do have NEMA 14-50 (50 amp / 240 volt) outlets throughout the park. So if you have your own adapter, we can accommodate you.

Just a few rules: DO NOT plug your EV into an outlet in your assigned RV site. This will overload the circuit, blow a breaker and possibly cause serious damage to your RV's electrical systems (converters, chargers, electronics and high draw appliances like your AC). Contact the office, and we will assign a temporary site with 50 amp service for charging (if available). You will be given a set time period to hook up and remove your vehicle. We meter your electric consumption and will bill you at the prevailing utility rate (the same price we pay) plus a $10 convenience fee.

Welcome to our backyard! We are John and Linda Peacher, resident owners and avid campers. We know what we like in a campground and we’ll do our best to provide it. First and foremost a safe and pleasant atmosphere. We have few rules but we do enforce our speed limit and a few other restrictions for the safety of our guests. Children are present. Please take a moment to read through the rules. You’ll be seeing a lot of us during your stay, but we’d also like to invite you to our “meet and greet”, every Friday afternoon. Get settled in, grab your favorite beverage and meet us and your fellow campers in the Pavillion anytime from 4:00 - 6:00 PM. If we can do anything to make your stay more enjoyable, please don’t hesitate to call us at any time at (319) 795-4822.

Welcome back! We love seeing old friends and familiar faces! Many of our “regular” guests stay with us on several occasions throughout the season. Sometimes it’s just for a quick weekend getaway or maybe to attend our special events. Hickory Haven has become their “summer cottage” and the other campers have become their friends and neighbors. We want to reward you! Sign up in the office to join our Loyalty Club. Receive an early notice for special events, special offers, and receive 1 free night for every 3 bookings within the same season. Sorry, national holiday weekends do not count and each reservation must be for a minimum of two nights. Each reservation (whether it’s for two nights, a week or a full season) count as one booking.
