“40’ Class A - OK”

Reviewed Oct 08, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a jewel. Or 40’ RV fits. Drove right in and backed into an empty site. There is self registration, fairly level gravel sites w/picnic table and fire pit. New shower house. We hooked our 50 amp right up with no problems. No water hookup or sewer. Drinking water is close and one sewer dump on sight. This is a really nice option.

Great little county park just outside of Des Moines. We arrived late and left early. Sites were large and level. Bathhouse was extremely clean. HOT Showers. Very nice park with river access. Didnt hear any trains.

“Great little gem”

Reviewed Mar 31, 2018

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 t... more
