Hole in the wall

Very small campground, less than 20 sites. Good points: next to Cedar River, with boat ramp. Durning week days generally very empty. Bad points: You have to travel down curvy gravel roads to get there, and roads could be closed if River is high. Also, no bath house, only pit toilet.

Smaller but laid out well

Went here after the spring floods with the RV. Sites are decent size. They have a a shelter and small playground. There is a spigot to fill your tanks and electric hook ups. The river is off a smaller dam and has great fishing. Kids had a great time playing in the water, our site was about 20 ft…

Used to be a Quarry

We love love love to come camping here. It's $10.00 per night last we stayed, placed into a self pay pole. While the grounds are mowed that is about all that is done on the camping side of the river for maintenance. I won't walk into the pit style restrooms let alone use them (kids can be jerks…

Great for a Newer Campground

I was always hesitant to camp here with it being new with no mature trees. Surprisingly with it's location in relation to Hwy 20, it's actually pretty quiet. There is a paved trail that'll take you over to the lake so it's not a bad walk. Shower houses are clean and well maintained. The fire rings…

Great for Outdoors

We camped here to try a new place (we try to pick one new place each year). We were a little underwhelemed when we first pulled in but that changed pretty quick. There weren't many other spots occupied, those that were looked fairly permanent. We had the RV and used the electric hookup. We found…

Simple and Secluded

Sigglekow Campground in Black Hawk County Iowa is one of a kind! Quite and secluded, if that's what you're looking for. To get out and decompress it's a great spot. Has electric sites and also places to tent camp (my favorite kind 😁) right on the Wapsi River.

Perfect Primitive Camping

We go to Eagle City a least once a year to just get away from it all, it's close to home but feels cut off which is what I look for when camping. We have only camped on the lower side to facilitate fishing the river, but we walk up to, and through the upper side every time also. We love how quiet…

Awesome Campground

L. Brandt’s Crazy Acres Campground is a quiet and peaceful campground. The kids had fun playing mini golf, swimming at the beach and playing at the playgrounds. The people that run the campground are so nice. The weekend we camped there was their Halloween trick or treating and all the campers were…

Mosquito Ranch

Perhaps it is just a season, but there were tremendous amount of mosquitoes at the campground during our visit. Lots of stagnant water, lake, etc. Reasonably priced, however, and close to Cedar Falls. The bathroom were a little sketchy and the noise from the highway was quite loud. OK stay for a…

Nice quiet camping

Excellent camping for families. Nice playground and fishing. Mature shade trees. Short trip to town that can be biked. Will definitely be staying again.

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.

Electric sites only, but beautiful area

All campsites at Timmons Grove are$18/night and are electric. I have visited this place many times but only camped once. This place has never been busy when I have visited.

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

Off the beaten path county park in Iowa

This campground offered much privacy when I went - I was the only person camping (tent camping). It was very quiet.

That being said, there are not many amenities. It has a vault toilet. I did not check the water hydrant, or even try to locate it, since I brought my own water for one night of…

Campsite at a beautiful little Iowa lake

Union Grove is known for having good lake fishing. The lake is also a great place for kayaking or canoeing.

The campground has mostly RV sites, but there are a handful of smaller tent sites at the back, which are my favorite. The campground is quiet.

Amenities:

Showers and toilets

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…
