Small River Campground

It is a small river campground, no shower houses, but there is a Porta potty. Never too busy even on holiday weekends.

Very rustic site with opportunities to explore nature

This area offers free primitive camping with no amenities(no toilet, no drinking water, no fire rings). It does offer a chance to get away to see a little wildlife. The first thing I heard when I got out of the car was the call of a pileated woodpecker, which flew away before I could take the…

I generally do not camp electric, so$18/night was steep for non-electric tent camping. There is no shower and the…

Nice campground, but can be loud during the day

I like this campground. It is right on the Iowa river near a takeout, so you can put in upstream and paddle down, or do as I do and paddle upstream and then back down (works when the water flow is not too swift).

This campground is quiet at night, but I will point out that it is near a popular…

Pine Lake is an awesome state park

This campground is near home so I know it well.

The campground itself is nice, with some decent sized campsites, many having a great view of upper Pine Lake. There are flush toilets and showers. Campsites have electric hookups. It can get busy during peak season!

Some of the campsites are near…

Secluded campground near the Iowa River

Eagle City Park has two parts - a lower campground that is a paddlers camp on the Iowa River, and an upper campground with a few secluded campsites.

All campsites are free, and there are many to choose from. I have camped in both the upper and lower campgrounds, in summer and fall. I tend to…

Nice campground!

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.

Gem of a campground

We loved this campground (stayed here many times in the past few years) and they've recently updated the bathroom/shower houses to be shared bathroom spaces with individual shower 'closets' on the opposite side of the building.  Excellent upgrade!

Fishing is good here, as are the hiking…
