Quiet peaceful place

We stopped at Crowder while we were driving cross country. The campsites are large, grass and shady. Pad is asphalt but not necessarily level . Beautiful bathhouse with 6 individual shower rooms.

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…

Wouldn’t recommend

You r in the bright sun all day. Nothing opens until 11. People fly by to the boat ramp all day.

Lovely Spring Weekend

I reserved the site for mid-April at the beginning of March. Campground opens 4/15 and we arrived on opening day. Check process can be done either in person or online upon arrival. Thursday night the campground was practically empty, but by 7pm on Friday night it was nearly full. Ranger offered a…

Buck Stop Camp

About 1.5 mile hike to camp, nice moderate hike with wide trails. Listened to deer rutting all night and coyotes howling. Can’t wait to go again!

Off the beaten path

Very nice and quite location when I went mid September. Seems like a lot of trails to explore. Will go back again to explore more. Lots of hills.

Out in the woods

Nice, but small state park, has around 40 rv sites. Large newer shower house to service all 40 sites. All sites are shaded. They have around 10 sites with full hook ups. Park is sitting on 1900 acres with plenty of hiking trails and a 18 acre lake. Nice place for a quiet getaway, downside if any…

Solitude, with plenty of company

This park may deserve a different rating at a different time of the year. This is Iowa's largest State Forest, and the Woodburn Unit plays host to several Backcountry campsites and 6 miles of trail. There is a picnic table and fire ring at every campsite. The trails are wide and well graded and not…

Ok spot

While I loved our camping spot, this park was just OK for me. The grounds and restrooms are nice, and it’s much smaller than most parks. The “lake” was very small and the hiking was just OK.

We stayed in electric site #19. It’s nice because it’s a pull through site with no neighbors on either…

Best Resort in Iowa

My family and I stay here for a week during the summer. We usually rent a cabin but there is also a hotel you can stay at.

The hotel includes w restaurant which is a little pricey but it’s usually really good food. There is a video game system hooked up in the lobby and a guest services area and…

Union Ridge

The rules are clear for Union Ridge... you can camp anywhere but backpack camping is prohibited during hunting season... that is a no brainer! Lol. There is a pretty little lake to fish... there are very primitive restrooms, (with only a toilet) so there are a few bathroom amenities.

It is quiet,…

Excellent

This is a beautiful state park with a very nicely laid-out campground. We always enjoy our visits to Red Haw.

Great little campground by a lake

Great spot by a small lake in Stephen's State Forest. Didn't have a soul around us for the night we camped here (late September). Temps were around 43 degrees at night. Fire pits have nice swinging grates on them. There was a picnic table at each spot as well. We were in Campsite 007. Would have…

Good campground.

Great campground. The site was nice and large, lots of kids to play, but quite. Nice hiking trails. The lake is really a large pond, you can kayak, canoe, fish and swim if you dont mind a pond.
