We stayed on one of the walk-in sites that was on the bluffs of the Mississippi River. The views were amazing! You could sit and look over the Mississippi River Valley for hours! The sites were anywhere from 50-200 yards from the parking lot but carts were provided. The park was very clean and it looked as if all of the other sites were very spacious. The hiking trails were fun with great views, although you could walk them all in about 2 hours. Downsides are that Cassville is a small town, so make sure you have supplies. Also, water was shut off to the showers and bathrooms, which they do in early October but the pit toilets were kept very clean. You need to book the walk-in sites early, because they go fast. A very wonderful park!

Most people head to Wyalusing State Park about 30 minutes up the Mississippi River because of it's cliffside camping where the Wisconsin River meets the Mississippi. That makes Nelson Dewey a sleeping secret! Nelson Dewey is a beatiful campground located on the bluffs of the Mississippi River. Some of the campsites have breathtaking views, especially the walk-in tent sites A through D. This is a smaller, quiet campground with lots of hiking, playgrounds and Wisconsin history. You can tour the home of Nelson Dewey, Wisconsin's first governor, or relive history at Stonefield Village at the bottom of the entrance of the state park along the river. We did some riverside driving and found some backroads along the Mississippi that were well worth the dust and dirt on our van. Cassville is a quaint town worth visiting as well. Nelson Dewey has 48 sites, 18 are electrical. There are showers and modern flush toilets. BEST ELECTRICAL SITES: 19E, 20E, 21E, 22E, BEST NON-ELECTRICAL SITES: 18, C, B, A & D, 17 & 16
