“Great location and nice hiking”

Reviewed May 11, 2018

Overall Rating

Swede Point Park is very basic RV camping with 16 spaces very close together. Checking is self service and convenient. All spaces are back-in and long enough for trailer and tow vehicle. Pads are gravel and quite level. There are very nice hiking trails that lead down (steeply) to the Des Moines river. About two miles, some on gravel, to the High Trestle bike trail. Once on the trail, the trestle is only about a mile away. There are tent (some with electricity) and group camp sites as well. Very friendly host with clean and well maintained bathrooms and shower facilities. Located in oak hickory forest land. Was quiet at night. There were 4 other RVs on a Thursday evening. There is a playground, sand volleyball and cement basketball area. I liked the quietness and being close to activities. About 4 miles from Madrid with grocery store, gas, fuel, propane and laundry.

Overall Rating

Unusual regulations that worked for us. No reservations accepted and no time limits for staying. Most of the area campgrounds were solidly booked on the weekends so we took a chance coming in here on a Thursday and found four available sites which we kept through Sunday morning. Some nice fellow campers, regulars for the most part, with a few seasonal campers. Electric only at site with water taps for filling bottles. Mostly oak trees and a long steep trail down to the Des Moines River. Sorry, no pics. We spent our days visiting my son and family, and I caught a touch of bronchitis which kept me inside.
