The bathrooms and showers were well kept. Was lucky and got a campsite under some shade, but quite a few weren't so lucky. Ended up with site 60, right in front of the showers and bathrooms, which was great but also sucked. As soon as the bathroom doors opened the fans came on, which late at night was kind of annoying. Firewood is not sold on the campground, so you can burn what's on the ground or head to Hyvee for some wood in town. Unfortunately we got there late the first day so Hyvee had just closed and we had to try to find sticks in the dark. There are no signs showing what numbers were in that area or to the beach area, bathrooms, or garbage so you just have to explore to find it. Also there are lots of deer in the area at all hours of the day, so keep an eye out for them when traveling to and from town,
Overall it was a great weekend and will probably be back. The only thing I really wish, was that the firepit be cleaned before we got to the site. We had to try and dig out all the burnt cans and foil with sticks.
Nice park, a little run down, but there's a new park ranger in town who is trying to fix it up. New rental cabin almost finished, clean beach, boat ramp and fishing. Clean spacious bathrooms, nice playground for the kids and a really cool equestrian section. No store, no wood so get what you need before you get here.
Ill do my best to imagen this setting in the best way
I live near this park so it's a go to spot for hiking and foraging, one review on here says there's no place for biking but bikes are allowed on the trails they just aren't paved.
There's a small lake with a "beach" that has catfish, bluegill and black crappie. Great place for small children the fish are very active in the summer.
The ticks are pretty thick during the summer on the trails. And if you want solitude this is not the place but if you are camping with children or inexperienced campers its a great park. All the pictures I have from this park are family portraits
Its a great place for pictures a lot of locals go there for family photos and senior pictures.
