      Eldridge, Iowa

      Welcome to Scott County Park, nestled near Eldridge, IA. This place is a gem for anyone looking to escape into nature without sacrificing modern comforts. The Pine Grove Campground, one of the park's highlights, offers spacious, shaded sites perfect for both tents and RVs. If you're rolling in with a big rig, no worries—these sites can handle it.

      One of the standout features here is the shower house. Visitors rave about the hot water and cleanliness, making it a great spot to freshen up after a day of hiking or exploring. Speaking of exploring, the park has plenty of hiking trails that wind through beautiful wooded areas. There's even a pool with water slides and a splash area for the kids, which is a lifesaver on those hot summer days.

      For those traveling with pets, you'll be glad to know that pets are welcome. Just make sure to keep them on a leash and clean up after them. The park staff and rangers are friendly and helpful, always making sure the grounds are well-maintained and safe.

      If you're into history, don't miss the Pioneer Village. It's a short hike from the campground and offers a fascinating glimpse into the past, complete with a blacksmith shop and old train cars. And yes, there's an ice cream shop—because who doesn't love a sweet treat after a hike?

      Cell service is solid, especially for Verizon and AT&T users, so you can stay connected if needed. Just remember, if you arrive after 10 PM, you'll need to pick a spot and pay in the morning.

      So pack your bags, grab your gear, and come enjoy all that Scott County Park has to offer. Whether you're here for a night or a week, you're in for a treat.

      Primitive area with water & 20 amp electrical service and RV pads with water, electricity and sewer hook-ups.

      Camp the way you like. We understand that some people like to pitch a tent and cook over an open fire, and others just don’t. That’s okay with us because we have campsites for both. The only restriction is that equestrians must utilize the designated sites within the Horse Corral campground, all others may utilize any campsite of their choosing regardless of their camping unit. Only one camping unit is allowed per site, "children's tents are considered a camping unit".

      District policy does not allow staff to issue refunds of any kind on reservations or the relocation/switching of reserved sites, reservations require a two-night minimum.

      All campers must secure a camping permit and check-in (reservation or no reservation) at the Park Office before they set-up camp.
