Overall Rating

This is a great park on a small lake in rural Iowa, not far from South Dakota.

There are a handful of full hookup sites (64-71) and a large number of electric only sites. The electric only sites are first come first serve. I'm not 100% sure on the full hookup sites. Rates for the electric only sites are $20 per night. The sites are very large and well shaded. I can't speak for the bathrooms/showers in the west loop, but the ones in the east loop appear to be fairly new and well maintained. Each room has its own shower, toilet, sink, and changing area.

In addition to camping, the park has playgrounds, picnic shelters, a beach, volleyball courts and a basketball court. They also have several rental cabins along the lake.

The local state parks in the area take reservations and fill up fast. It's hard to get reservations a few weeks in advance. Since Lake Pahoja is first come first serve it's well visited by local campers with last minute plans. Because of this, I'd advise arriving mid-week if you want to camp the weekend.

Even on a busy summer weekend, everyone was very respectful of each other and we didn't have any noise issues.
