Pine ridge

Tucked out of the way along the iowa river. My kids love this campground and it's cheap. They have a shower house, bathrooms, and a playground. How ever it does flood quit a bit and does not have a dump station. Convenience store in town a couple miles away with a big new city playground and a drop in point on the river right over the bridge you cross to get there for tubing and kayaking.

Great campground with lots of activities.

If you're looking for a wooded campground that offers you both quiet sites to relax but also offers a variety of activities for all ages, this is the place for you to setup your tent, or RV. For little ones, there is a large sand playground area with slides and swings. There is a sand beach to swim, where they also rent kayaks & canoes. The campground is located along the Cedar river, for those who want to boat and fish on a river, as well as multiple lakes to fish and a lake to ski. There are numerous soft bike trails throughout the park. And a hard trail that is part of 150 miles of bike trails in the Waterloo & Cedar Falls area.

The campground's shower house is handicap accessible. All sites have 50 amp service and the water provided is from the city of Waterloo. There is an onsite dump station.

Favorite Place to Hike

We love hiking here, and the cabins are campground are very nice.

Great campground

Camper spots were huge with plenty of space between sites. Fire ring was on a cement slab. Bathrooms were clean. Good cell phone signal. Small lake for fishing and swimming working walking distance

Very nice camp ground

Very nice! Lots of spots 34 of them! Water and electric hook up! Cell service wasn’t good but the WiFi was great! Camp host is very very nice! We will be going back for sure. We had 12 campers pull in together and was able to camp all together! It’s $20 a night

Nice campground

We like this campground a lot, very nice shade, playground area, as well as nice trails. Clean restrooms and shower stall

Good Base Camp to Explore Cedar Falls

It was kind of loud, but it was busy. The lake for swimming was a little gross but we did it anyway. The bike trails are excellent and same for hiking. Bathrooms were a little old but clean when we were there, but there were massive hornets all over the bathroom area. It's also pretty bright here at night because it's right in the city. But overall, a decent, cheap place to tent camp if you want to explore Cedar Falls.

Beautiful spot

Exceptionally clean. New basthroom/ shoer house. Water electric at each site. Dump station on site. Nice swimming beach and many fishing jetties.

Super fun and kid friendly !!

Loved camping here, we have 4-5 times already this year! We tent camped but they’ve got lots of spaces for campers and tents as well, bathrooms are close, there is a nice lake near with play equipment located at the lake and at the campground, the campground has old bikes for the kids to use, everyone there is so nice! We love it

Amazing!!

Amazing campground! So much to do and very nice people!
