Grandad Bluff is supposed to be one of the best scenic overlooks along the Mississippi.
Preferred RV Route
If you are going to visit the Bluff while driving your RV don’t take the suggested route on Bliss Avenue. There is a bridge with a low weight limit on that path.
Instead use local Highway 33 to F drive.
Are the Bluffs RV Friendly?
We actually stopped to take a moment to see if the park was RV-friendly. All I could find was a suggestion for commercial busses to take the route suggested above. I assumed that they’d only make that recommendation if there were actually large busses headed up, so figured we’d be OK to take our fifth wheel too.
Well, for the most part.
A Busy Park!
Our first issue was going on a sunny, mild, Saturday afternoon in the fall when the color is in full bloom. The drive was a solid parade of cars going in and out.
I kept watching other drivers and no one wavved their arms or shouted at us so I assumed seeing large-ish RVs in the park was no big deal.
We passed a paved turn-around point but the park continued. We passed a gravel turn-around point right by a gate but the park continued. We passed a gravel parking area slammed full of cars but the park continued.
Then we came to the end of the park drive where it terminates by the main overlook. The parking lot is not a circle drive, but more like a suburban cul-de-sac with parking around the outer rim.
Suburban Sheep Shirt
If you have the same slightly sarcastic sense of humor as we do this may be the shirt for you. This design is both a commentary on suburban living and a declaration of your intent to leave it.
Styles available: t-Shirts,and hoodies.
Colors available: black, royal blue, navy blue.
Did I mention it was busy?
Crazy Presidential-visit busy. Groups of people. Cars coming and going. Waiting for spots. Parking on the road.
