“An water oasis among the fields of corn”

Overall Rating

The lake is what brings water lovers and anglers from all over Iowa here. When you drive in there isn't an official check in gate, but signage points you towards the campground. Once you enter there is self check in kiosk as well as a printed sheet listing all the reserved sites. The campground has a mixture of full hook up sites, sites with only electric and a tent camping section. If you need to take on water like we did, you'll actually have to drive through the campground and follow the exit and then come to the dump station where there is a fresh water fill. Most of the sites for RVs are a bit tight but most all of them provide nice views of the lake. The lake has a great paved 4 mile trail around it, which we enjoyed on bike a couple times and in the morning you'll love watching the rabbits, deer and the amazing number of birds along the path. There is also a bike/hike trail that goes into the small town of Anita. The swimming area was well maintained and quite popular on the days we were there.
