Perfect, overnight stay

Great overnight stay. Got in later a little than planned, after hours. Very quiet— great nights sleep.

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.

Nice city park

Decent fishing. Quiet campers. 2 campgrounds, newer one with modern facilities, no trees. Other side of park is older one, with mature trees, portable toilets, power, water, 15 or so sites. Close to i35, but not to close. Make reservations, facilities this good are full by Friday.

State park, make a reservation.

Good sized lake, nice beach, camp store operators real nice. Decent distance between sites for a state park on Iowa. Boat rentals. On my annual camp rotation.

Much better.

They cut down some trees and brush now you can see the lake. Bath houses are clean play grounds are nice. Good basic camping.

Hard to find real camping for free

Fire pits with grills and everything.

Unfortunately we were there in the dead of winter as a stop over on a road trip, but it was easy to find and easy to get into the park to the camp sites.

For just outside of Des Moines, pretty good spot.

Beautiful scenery

The cabins were perfect, with lots of places to hike all around the area.

Favorite Place to Hike

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

Wonderful

Great for tent camping, very spacious and grassy sites, clean, grill/fire pit was really very nice. Very clean and modern bathrooms, easy access to water. Hiking trails were well maintained. Can't wait to come again.

Big Park

This was a super cool state park, great amenities, level and spacious RV spots. We loved it and will go back if we're in that area again.
