Nice little county park

This was an interesting little campground sandwiched between the road and the Trempealeau River. The backstory on the park is that the gentleman who originally owned the land had asked that when he died that it be preserved as a wildlife area. His death came much sooner than anyone thought, and the family worked with the county to donate the land to the county as a park. There are about six tent only sites set back near the river, with three of them in close proximity to each other (I think it is used as a group camping area). When I was there the sites were poorly maintained and only had two fire pits and tables for all six sites combined. There are 25ish RV type sites with either just electric or electric and water. Some of these sites are set up back to back in an open field, which is not very appealing. The grass had been let to grow very long before the recent cutting, so it was like walking through freshly mown hay. There is a horse arena (very muddy when I was there), and it looks like you can camp with your horses on the edge of the RV area. The showers were really nice and fairly new.

  • A small but nice trail system with good maps
  • Really nice new shower house!
  • Bring the family for volleyball and other games
  • The vault toilet near the tent sites
  • The group camping area is an open field
  • My campsite next to the river
  • Good river to wade in near the campsite.
  • The trails were nice
  • Firewood on the honor system
  • The horse arena was a bit muddy, might need some drainage work
