Very Nice

I was surprised at how well maintained this place is especially for a dispersed camping area.

Great Find

Follow the signs to “ camping”. There was nobody there and a pretty awesome playground for the kids.  clean accessible and a drive through a quaint little town. What else could you ask for?

Small county park but nice little weekend getaway

We stayed at Swede point in the fall with some friends on a whim - didn't need much but this little campground has some interesting pluses - nice bathhouse, hiking trails, and it's small so you don't get overwhelmed by people if that's not your thing.

First come, first served - if you're going…

Much nicer than I expected

Campground with level pads, easy access and super friendly hosts. Spaces are large and open with nice balance of trees for shade.

Wallashuck Rec Area

Very nice campground, each sight has a fire ring and table, plus a lantern pole. It is in a city park like setting and on the lake. Fire wood for sale at the entrance, you have to get water at the entrance only electrical hook up. Showers are very clean and there is also a children’s play ground.

Beautiful - lush

Coming here on a Hot Day in the summer is the best. Lush trees and water to wade in. Recommend the hikes and walking the water river beds.

Go Faster!

Campsites have the right amount of privacy while being close to the clean bathroom & playground. Outside the campground is Canyon Road, with multiple trails great for hiking up and along the scenic ledges. The road crosses the river several times, and on the weekend these crossings are lined…

A good place to relax and recharge

We enjoyed a long weekend here reconnecting with friends.  The campground is well maintained and has a camp host on site.  The Shower/restrooms were clean and stocked.  Firewood is available for 8$ a bundle.  Sites are gravel base and  fairly level.  The city park has a edge maze that is unique. …

Worth a stay!

We've tent camped twice at Springbrook, and though it's not perfect, it's a nice campground we plan to keep coming back to for a number of reasons.

Pros:

-Not a far drive from Des Moines, but still quite remote

-Lots of nice hiking trails

-Easy access to large, mostly clean modern…

Great location, tons of amenities

Marion County is often overlooked by people in favor of the various Red Rock campgrounds that are nearby, but in my opinion, unless you have a boat, there is nothing that puts Red Rock above Marion County. They have done a great job in recent years updating sites a few at a time, adding pavement…

Great park!

We had site 24, sites were very spaced out and they are only on one side of the road so no sites backed up to ours. Plenty of room for our dogs

Huge park

It’s a little ways off the highway through the town of Stuart (Home to 1600 good eggs). There is an upper and lower campground and rumor has it that the lower sites can be a little muddy. Electrical at all the RV sites with grey water access and black water dumping station. Views of the water and…

River View!

We settled into one electrical site and one tent site for our adventure. The tent section offers fairly large sites, and views of the river. Our electrical site was decent size and the"backyard" was right up to the river bank. We anticipated some rain so we set up a screen tent for shelter right…

Quaint, clean, and pretty views.

This is a beautiful COE park along the overflow of the lake. Cell service was terrible, but we loved the park. People were friendly and super helpful!
