“Nice RV parking lot by a lake unless you go non-electric.”

Rock Creek state park is located about 5 miles north and 3 miles east of the town of Kellogg, Iowa. Kellogg is about 40 miles east of the Des Moines metro area along I-80. Access to Rock Creek state park is easiest by going north through Kellogg. This route has paved roads all the way.

The park offers about 200 campsites. About half are non-electric sites. Electric sites are mostly 30 amp service, but some are being upgraded to 50 amp service. The sites are situated close together much like one would expect in a purely commercial RV park. This is a fairly popular weekend destination with a few long term campers. Availability of campsites will probably be best during the weekdays. If you want a choice electric site, you'll need to reserve early, but there are plenty of "OK" spots that are usually available. Not all sites are reservable. Reservations can be made at IowaDNR.gov. Fees are $11 for non-electric and $17 for electric sites.

The non-electric sites are a bit more sparsley used and are a bit larger, so most times a reservation isn't necessary for these. The non-electric sites are more shaded than the others.

The lake offers good fishing and boating is restricted to no-wake speeds. Occasionally one will see a sailboat of up to about 25 feet in length on the lake. There is a concession which sells bait, tackle and a few grocery items. Boat rentals are available from kayaks to "Party barge" pontoon boats. On the day use side of the lake (Across the lake from the campground) there is a swimming beach and changing house. There are also three boat launch ramps and several fish cleaning stations at points around the lake.

We stayed here while traveling to CO if was a short distance off of the I 80, but our GPS took us down gravel roads when coming in from the east. When we left we went west and the roads were all paved to the I 80. We could not hear the highway at all, but it was hot so we had our camper air conditioner running. There are many sites right next to the lake. Many of the sites had electric.
