“All the feelings of owning a private riverside estate without the upkeep!”

Reviewed Sep 16, 2018

Lush beautiful grass; well trimmed, mature trees scattered around (but not too much for those like me with solar!) Iowa has some of the most beautiful parks open to the public and this is a perfect example! It doesn't seem to be a highly trafficked area but I did hear a story or two about locals who come and trash the place on weeke... more

If you ever find yourself in Central Iowa needing a nice free county park - give this one a consideration! The narrow gravel road gets pretty narrow, and it's a fairly tight turn to get in, but should be doable in almost anything (my 43' 5th wheel cleared pretty easily). Don't have high expectations of site pads, toilets, or ... more

Imagine, for a moment, that you were just handed the keys to a beautiful home with 5 acres of lush green grass on the banks of the beautiful Iowa River. Sound like some kind of dream? Well, we...
