“Leafy but tiny CG close to Sioux City”
Reviewed May 21, 2018
This very petite campground is located within a fairly large state park that sits inside the city limits of Sioux City. The campground only has 8 sites with electricity (the rest are either basic sites with car access, or hike in) and not all of them are reservable. For larger rigs, the choices are pretty limited. The best site for a larger rig (we are a 25 foot Airstream) is without a doubt #12. Site 12 is gravel, very level, large enough for virtually any rig, and has a decent angle of approach thanks to being on the end of the turnaround loop. Sites 13 and 14 are very small, and the sites with lower numbers are narrow and perpendicular to the road, making parking difficult. The only downside of site 12 is a trailhead immediately behind the site, but foot traffic was extremely light during our stay. Sites have picnic tables and fire rings, but they are generally not on gravel and were quite muddy during our stay.
During the summer season there is a bathhouse with flush toilets and showers; in the off season there is a vault toilet available for campers. The park offers recycling (plastic and aluminum), trash, and potable water. The campground has no dump station, but dumping is available for free at the rest station on I-29 South, or for $10 at the nearby KOA. The park has numerous picnic shelters and a network of trails that can be assembled into a decent hike. Several trails leave directly from the campground. The roads within the campground are pretty narrow and windy, but you only need to travel on them for a short distance.

The park is very close to Sioux City commercial areas, and gas and groceries are available within a short drive. Despite this, the park is extremely quiet and feels quite remote.
We had OK but not great service on AT&T (1 bar LTE). Download: 9.71 Mbps Upload: 1.04 Mbps.
