We camped with family in the group circle site. The circle group site has a nice big area for the kids to play. The playground and lake was also fun for the kids too.
This is a great quiet park with animals for visiting and a very clean shower house.
To start off, Backbone State Park is one of the most gorgeous parks I’ve ever visited. It’s so beautiful, with plenty of challenging and scenic trails and lots of wildlife. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is the campgrounds (we stayed at Six Pines). I’ll go into more detail below.…

Backbone is a very diverse area. There are miles of trails. Is hiking your thing? What about equestrian? Maybe mountain bike trails? You can even take the family for a nice leisurely walk on the easier trails. Exploring is fun at this park because there is so much to see. The Trout stream was busy…

camped her for years and the park has lost its camp host. soooo honesty pay system is in effect. the park has a nice primitive spot along the river
this park has hiking(on path or off), fishing in multiple lakes and the cedar river, and a beach!!! maxx rentals will rent you from float mats to double kayaks. i suggest if you like well kept campgrounds try a weekend here

this is a 700+ acre park with hiking, fishing, and disc golf. it also has modern amenities and a small zoo of animals from birds to buffalo.

from trout steam,river access for boats or kayaks, to the beautiful trails with educational signs along it. this park is perfect
Many different trails for hiking, biking or equestrian. Camp sites are mostly grass. Beautiful park
Very quiet, small campground (possibly more quiet than usual being the 1st weekend of the season). Most sites are relatively private. Nice hiking trails within a short walking distance from campsites. There are 4 walk-in sites overlooking the Mississippi River. Clean restroom/showers.

Nice campground with some non-electric sites on bank of Cedar River, clean shower house and flush toilets. On Cedar Valley bike trail (100+miles of interconnecting bike trial. major Hwy on two sides of park, sleeping in a tenet it was very noisy at night. and a train track close by (again at night)
Nice County camp ground (Black Hawk), Electric and non-electric sites. campground sits on edge of lake. Bike trail runs by campground and connects to the Cedar Valley Trail (100+miles of interconnecting hard surface bike trails). NOTE: Some Hwy noise at night as Hwy 218 is right next door)
