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.

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.

Conveniently located, privately owned

Close sites, little shade.  Nice owner's, quiet.  Have church with non denominational service on sunday, which is nice.

Really neat little park

Gorgeous little park right on a series of small lakes. Camping is in grassy and forested area. You dive on grass and park next to a table and power outlet. Many of these spots are not level and seem better suited to tents than larger RVs but some spots could work for vans, class C or small class A RVs. I also saw one cabin for rent. This is all near the water and has bathrooms and a water faucet. I also noticed pretty good AT&T cell coverage here. This area has historically been bad for cell coverage so maybe that is improving.

Nice family park.

Really nice. Has 3 playgrounds a volley ball pit, disk golf, fishing, basketball court, shuffle board, clean shower houses, nice size sites, dump station, not expensive. Oh and they have events and bands that play on a stage. The town has restaurants and a bar and grocery store and hardware store. U can walk there or golf cart it up son. It's all good

Lovely campground and park

Very well maintained campground in a small but lovely park. Host was very nice and there were lots of open spots on a Saturday in late September. Loved our tent site with a short walk to the lake and clean bathrooms

Pretty campground, easy access.

Great campground for our overnight, would be a wonderful extended stay as well. Friendly owners came right up when we pulled in, $35 a night, no cards but check or cash were fine. No Good Sam discount. Easy access off I-35. Guided right into the site, easy hookups. Water had a chlorine taste is the only drawback, but probably no worse than city water. Nice and quiet, many families around. Had a great overnight and a lazy morning before a 2 PM checkout. Would stay again when we're back this way.
