Peaceful spot in the valley

We stayed here for a week in June to start our trip around the country and it was a great place to start our camping experience!  The owner/host does a great job and is extremely helpful.  Plenty to do in the area... we floated down the root river for about 3 hours and had a great time.  The…

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.

Nice park

Went there last weekend had to do a walk up everything else was reserved. Clean park area, bathrooms were disgusting though. Talked to the DNR he was very friendly and knowledgeable. Plenty of places to walk around and hike. Overall a good place to stay for a few days but not much to do after that

Great campground for a weekend RV

We stayed over Memorial Day Weekend at site 183. It was spacious and very well kept, with a great view of the lake. Wry easy to back in and get set up, almost level and took very little adjustment to get our spot in order. Neighbors were friendly, kids found other kids to play with, and lots of…

Open land, surrounded by trees

Campsites are flat and grassy. They back up to each other so good for groups camping together. Has horse tie ups and great trails

A nice surprise in NE Iowa

This was a quick stopover so I can't comment on the park overall.  It is nestled in the woods not far from the Indian Mounds area in Iowa.  I stayed at Little Paint Campground.  There are pit toilets, but the water said not for drinking.  A small river runs by the camp.  The park has hiking and…

Camping in a valley

This is a beautiful campground seated in a valley surrounded by amazing hills. There is minimal phone service. That means you get to absorb nature.

Beautiful views and peaceful camping!

Beautiful, spacious, and quiet camping and state park. The hiking is awesome! We hiked the Bluff Trail which has lots of hills and steepness, skinny trail with some drop offs but it was fun! My daughter was a little nervous during the hike but I felt safe so nothing to worry about. Just take…

Quiet, small, and beautiful

Bev was amazing to us! 

Only 4 campsites and you have to call to reserve a spot but the views are worth it. 

Every campsite has water, electric, a picnic table, fire pit, and tree for shade. The showers were being fixed when we visited, so I can't speak for that. A couple of porta potties on site…
