Great Cabins and fishing

Took my son here last Spring.  Cabins are very clean the bunks allowed for for four to sleep.  Beautiful sunsets overlooking the lake.  Fish cleaning station was also well taken care of.  We had a great time catching small walleyes and sunnys.  This location also made it easy to head over to twelvel mile lake and fish also.  Everyone was very friendly.

Large campgound with great museum

This campground has a beautiful little lake (glad to see it back)  The museum is fun afternoon trip to hike to and visit.  There are a few times when the Boy Scouts take this park over for council events.   A great time for the family to get out and enjoy the outdoors.

Fantastic youth group campgrounds

We stayed here for the easy access to the water for the Scouts to get out in canoes and fishing.  I have been camping here off and on for the last 25 years.  I have not had any issues at all.  I have stayed in a regular tent campgounds and the youth group campsites.  I often head here for a few days in the Spring and Summer for a day of fishing as well.  My son and I like to get the canoes and Kayaks out and paddle around the lake.  The fish cleaning stations are well maintained and the location is not too far away from town.

Beautiful quiet park

We camp here every year in for Scouts.  The time a year we go it is not busy and we pretty much have the place to our selves.  The last time we were there the ranger let us have all the firewood we wanted.  Nice easy hiking paths and the beautiful grounds.

Beautiful getaway

We stayed on the primative group side of the lake.  There is a small pond that we were able to let some of our scouts get started in kayaks and canoes before getting into the main lake.  Great fishing and walking paths.  Iowa has done a great job fixing up this area.  The cabins are small but clean.

quiet peaceful

This primative campground has a small stocked trout stream running through it.  It is off of the beaten path and is usually not too busy.  This has become a favorite of our Scouting BSA Troop.
