Good for one Night

This campground is part of a city park. It is far enough off I80 that you don't hear the traffic at night. When I arrived, I was the only one here. Later at night another camper showed up.  It was nice and quiet. Nice to have a grassy park to walk the dogs around. Not much to do here, but I only…

Lovely Campground

I just loved this campground. It has shade trees, grass, free showers and lots of room. It is part of a city park on the outskirts of Winterset. There is a dog park and one of the Bridges of Madison County is located within walking distance of the campground. This was well worth the 20 mile drive…

Small quiet clean campground off gravel road in middle of farmland

No way to make day before reservations so we gambled and drove in. Van and bikes covered in fine white dust from road. Small lake but sites on hillside with no view. Clean bathrooms but noticed paid time showers were taped " out of order" morning of our departure so no showers for us. Very quiet…

Nice Campground

This is a city campground on the outskirts of town that does not feel that way. It sits right next to a park. White rock roads and pads. It has some full hook up sites as well as water and electric sites. Overall a nice place to say.

No frills clean campground

All the spaces are pulled through. It is very clean. There is full hook up for water, electric and sewer. All spaces are paved. There are picnic tables scattered throughout the park. If you are here to gamble, you will love it. If you are here to rest, you will love it. My wife and I feel safe in…

Beautiful Lakefront

As others have said, the sites are quite close together, in this case I didn't mind as I met up with friends on a weeknight, so our sites were close together and our cluster of sites had a buffer on either side. We were on the outer loop which put us closest to the lake and offered electrical…

Interesting place to camp at a park

Great playground. Small town. Bathrooms looked recently cleaned but not amazing. Equipped with soap. Shower was leaking and kinda gross but only $6 for tents and $15 Rvs.

Gem But Could Be Better

As tent campers we found a lot to love at Lake of Three Fires, but also found ourselves wanting more. It’s got a gorgeous lake, and some camping sites are out of this world, but it can be inconsistent and there’s not a lot to do.

Pros: -While the electric hookup sites were full, primitive campers…

Beautiful and clean!

Stayed overnight at site 48 overlooking the Lake. It was so peaceful and lovely sunset just perfect. The facilities were all very clean and in excellent condition.

Great Find

Follow the signs to “ camping”. There was nobody there and a pretty awesome playground for the kids.  clean accessible and a drive through a quaint little town. What else could you ask for?

Right on the Water

We lucked out and nabbed a site right on the water on a really full weekend! It was a BEAUTIFUL view. The bathrooms/shower houses were immaculate and well kept. Solid firewood, $5 for 8 pieces. It was packed but definitely didn't feel like it. We had 5 dogs in our group and spent a lot of time on…

A good place to relax and recharge

We enjoyed a long weekend here reconnecting with friends.  The campground is well maintained and has a camp host on site.  The Shower/restrooms were clean and stocked.  Firewood is available for 8$ a bundle.  Sites are gravel base and  fairly level.  The city park has a edge maze that is unique. …

Had the lake to ourselves!

Although there were RVers and a nice group of Boy Scoutspaet of the time, there was no one else in our tent camping side. We had chilly weather, but marvelous views of the water with a rare flock of pelicans! Some of the trails were muddy, but there plenty of others to choose from. Red buds and…
