Overall Rating

This is a county park that is East of Des Moines downtown out in a rural environment. There is a train that flanks the South side of the park, which in a tent or soft side camper you will hear at a distance and in a hard sided rig there is a slight rumble. This is a pretty good size county park. Unfortunately, for anyone to get to the day use areas they have to drive by either of the campgrounds back and forth. Getting into campground 1 are some very low hanging trees that are not trimmed back for big rigs. Most of the sites are spacious and gravel pads, very well done. Each campground has flush toilets and showers. We are here in the off season and they have an ADA accessible port-a-pot in place since the water is not yet on. Price is the same off season as on season. There is a caretaker that lives right between the two campgrounds. We stayed here 2 years ago and it was a great stay then and this was too. The park is sort of in the middle of nowhere but on the edge of everywhere sort of thing.
