“Nice campground with a few gems inside ”

Reviewed Jun 11, 2018

Overall Rating

Stayed for one night but gave a quick walkabout the campground. It’s small but sits on a lovely lake that has a swimming beach, picnic building and playground. Community areas and bathrooms/showers are clean and well kept. RV lots are tight but decent. Tent sites are rather used if ever, many had weeds growing inside the fire rings. Also, the tent sites were typically sloped downhill. But not a bad place to stay for a night or two. The lake is great for swimming, fishing and paddling.

“Popular campground, allows horse trailers in one section ”

Reviewed Sep 08, 2016

Overall Rating

We stayed here with our vintage Airstream for a rally. It appears to be a popular park and the campground was full while we were there. The sites are dirt and grass, some are spaced a bit apart and others are close. There were like fifth wheels, but I think the sites are more conducive to shorter Trailers. The restrooms were extremely clean and kept up, even though it was busy while we were there.
This park is off the beaten path, though within 20 miles are a few small interesting little towns. We visited during the music festival which draws large crowds for its location in SW Iowa.
