“Nicely groomed, optional dispersed camping, normal campsites, but near road”

Reviewed Oct 23, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a two part campground. Straight ahead and up the hill is a dispersed dry camping area with many spots in the woods great for tenting and some accessible to campers. We did find three places we could fit our forty foot fifth wheel in the woods and enjoyed that until our batteries needed us to go to the other area for electrical hookups.

As you enter the campground from the highway, if you go left there is a ‘normal’ campground with about thirty back-in sites of varying lengths all having electric hook ups. Our site (#6) had 15, 30, and 50 amp connections. Some of the sites were smaller, but many could easily fit fifty plus feet in length. If the campground were full, it might be a little crowed for us as some of the sites were close together with most of the oak and walnut trees large and tall leaving not much lower branches to hide from other sites. Each site had a fire ring and presumably picnic tables (presumably because they were all put away for the winter).

The park is on loon lake and has its own boat access and a couple docks. A well groomed and maintained place with some hiking trails and a paved biking trail leaving the park to the south and west for miles (don’t know how far, didn’t go to the end). There is a public bathroom and shower house in the main camp area and a public bathroom and picnic shelter in the upper area. Only a few miles from Lake Okoboji, IA, this would be a great place to get away from the ‘parking lot’ camping around there if you wished to partake in the tourist fun of the area.

We stayed eight days in late october and were the only people around. We had three bars for Verizon service. There is a drop box for payment which was fifteen dollars for the non-electric and twenty for the electric. There is firewood on site with a suggested donation of fifty cents per log.

The only negative was the proximity to the highway. It’s not a very well traveled road, but when someone drives by you do here them in the main campground. The upper area is far enough away that we didn’t here anything when in the woods. Of the three county parks within a couple miles of each other, this is by far the most ‘woodsy’. We liked it and would come again.
