“Wanted to stay looked nice but could't fit!”

Overall Rating

There website showed back in sites or at least 3 that were listed between 61-71 feet long, so we went in to check it out (we tow with an HDT and our overall length is 61'. We couldn't even make the turn into the campground so forunately were able to head further down to the boat ramp parking and get turned around on a loop. Shoul've checked it out on Google Maps first, but we were traveling and you know how that goes...

One more thing of importance, when you turn on Walnut Woods Drive the trees are not trimmed very good, In more than one spot tree limbs were scraping the roof pretty good. My solar panels probably saved the EDPM from damage! (Come on Iowa!)

*Definitely NOT big rig friendly! Looks like a great spot if you can get in....

As far as star rating I had to give it one and it reflects only our experience of not being able to get in! It looks like a beautiful spot to camp!

We always have a good time when we camp here, the only thing missing is showers. But we live close and if we are staying for more than a weekend we can go home to shower, otherwise we just sponge bathe. They have just repaved the access road into the park so it is nice and smooth. they are usually right on top of cleaning the restrooms, and park is always kept up very nice. We camp in an older TT and we get cell phone coverage very well here. It's always a nice quiet place to camp, and meet new friends.
