Great campground

We loved our stay here! Beautiful campground and well maintained. Unfortunately the skate arena was closed for the season. Lots of trails to choose from and spacious campsites.

My only complaint is the signs in the park. It was our first time here and with the lack of signs telling us where to go was frustrating.

We will absolutely be back next year!!

Favorite campground!

We went to Prairie Flower for the first time last week and this is by far our favorite campground so far!

The whole campsite was paved and our site (#81) had a beautiful lake view. The whole park was the cleanest we have seen anywhere else. We will absolutely be back!

Labor Day weekend

This campground has a lot of mixed reviews on social media. We were a bit worried but I’m so glad we went.

The parallel parking was so much easier than we thought it would be. Not a huge fan of sharing the same outdoor space but it was manageable. It would be perfect for large family/friend gatherings as some where doing.

The campground was super clean and the bathrooms the cleanest I’ve seen at a state park.


Overall it was a good stay. Our campsite was the smallest we have ever had. It didn’t help that our “neighbor” parked cockeyed taking up 1/2 our site and refused to fix the issue.

It was a nice park. Saturday night they played a movie in front of our site which was a nice surprise. They offered free popcorn and had a little shop to buy other things.

Not a fan

It was clean and looks like they are updating some of their building. The playground needs a massive makeover. Our RV was on the corner so we had a fair amount of extra room unlike some sites. A cute little beach for swimming, one main reason we picked this state park was for the kayak rentals. They were closed so we weren’t able to, which was a big disappointment.

The park is electric only with a dump station and water hydrants through out the park. We have Verizon & AT&T and had no service. This is the first place we have been to without voice service (other doesn’t matter). Just a bit worrisome in case of emergency.

Overall, there are many better state parks that I would rather go to.

Great state park

First time visiting this park and will be returning! Pretty spacious between sites. Trails were great and our kids loved swimming in the lake.
