4 Reviews of Winterset City Park Campground
Loved this cute park!

We will definitely return, we loved this park. The bridges of Madisin County, Clarke Tower, cute local ice cream shop, John Wayne Museum! So much fun in a cute Iowa community!


Lovely park inside the city that makes you feel like you’re in the ozark mtns, with a surprise!

Neat Picnic Park

Cute little park just in the town of Winterset. there is a two mile loop that leads you up Clark's Tower where you can see the rolling hills of gorgeous Madison county. great place to take the family for a picnic or host a cookout.

First to Review
If you love John Wayne you will love Winterset City Park

Don't let the name fool you, for a city park and campground, Winterset City Park rocks. You probably didn't know that Winterset, Iowa is the birthplace of John Wayne. You may have seen the Clint Eastwood movie the "Bridges of Madison County," but you probably didn't know that the bridges are real and the movie was filmed in Winterset.

The campground is clean and there is a large space for campers/RV's and a separate spot for tents towards the back of the campground toward the park. The park itself is gorgeous and your just a few blocks away from the John Wayne Museum. If you are in Winterset the second week of October, stay for the Bridge Festival, it's a blast!

The campground is a solid 3.5, clean and well maintained. When you include all of the sites it pushes it up to a 4 star campground.
