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…

Great campground!

   So, 20 years ago in 2001 we stayed here on our back home from Yellowstone. It was a dismal place. The guy who ran the place was a jerk. There was a terrible odor all through the campground, which turned out to be dozens of dead fish in their retention pond. We vowed never to go back.

Very nice facilities, not great atmosphere

Very nice bathrooms, store, pool, etc as far as standard KOA amenities go. But very lacking on trees and very packed in. Site 31 is a “buddy site” and you are sitting on top of your neighbors with no privacy. It works pretty good if you actually have a “buddy”, but if you come alone it’s not…

A beautiful campground and nice staff

It was such a nice campground we could have stayed there a few nights but our plans didn’t allow for a longer visit.

Nice and relaxing

We had a 3 day stay. Our spot was pretty level and very large. Check in was very quick and they were very pleasant and helpful. Playground was next to us but it was fun watching the kids play. Full sun in the morning but afternoon was shaded by trees. Restrooms and shower was clean and close…

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.

Modern cabins and a beautiful park

The two cabins are fairly new and have all of the amenities. My mother-in-law stayed here while visiting recently and we enjoyed spending time at her cabin.

While camping is no longer allowed in Tower Rock park, you can still enjoy a walk down to the river or bicycling on the paved bicycle…

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…

Fun for young kids!

It was a fun place for kids. They had plenty to do between the pool and all of the fun activities. We went during Father’s Day weekend so they had face painting, movies, and hungry hungry daddy (a version of hungry hungry hippos). Over all I think it would be a fun maybe 1 time a year place while…

Good One Night Stay

This RV park is right off the interstate but far enough you won’t hear the noise. I can’t tell you if they are actually Iowa’s best burger because this is the only burger I’ve had in Iowa.

Nice people, everything is clean. Spots are pull thru. No issues at all.

It’s a one night because unless…

Jester campground

A lovely and quiet campground. The huge drawback is the water quality of Saylorville lake. It is toxic— blue algae from farm runoff. Not safe for man or beast.

Pretty Park

Bottom line. My bad but the site said electric. In all the other parks I’ve been to “electric” includes water. Which this park does not. Many trees, very pretty. Cell reception is weak.
