5 RV Parks near Algona, Iowa
May 2011 - $18.00
Small state park, limited number of large sites. We are in a 30 rig, and only a few sites were adequate. Mostly shady, watch for the trees. - stetwood

For $15 with water and electric cannot say to much bad about the campground. It had back in sites. Gravel. Shade. Pretty level. The fire rings were not designed by campers. Too deep. Could only see the tip of the flames. But again it is only $15. Good campground. - schemmy

Smith Lake is one of the many County Conservation Parks in Iowa. It was quiet and peaceful with shady sites, mostly back-in. The lake was great and there were several nice hiking trails around it. We did not visit the Nature Center, but it looked inviting. The bathrooms were older and not well-lit; they really needed painting. We would stay again because of the lake and the ambiance. - LabProwler

This is a destination to go to rather than your usual campground. The Grotto is Passport America friendly, at $7.50 per night for your first two days. It is a park-like setting, with beautiful shade trees and a pretty pond with two swans and geese to watch. It has 50 plus sites according to the man in the gift shop, but I think there is a second rv park area rather than the one we parked in. Some people said there is wifi, but when I called the office, they said that was in the "west" park only. There is 30 amp service only, and there is a water spigot and a dump station somewhere to use. We were able to get several PBS channels on the antenna, and no networks. So basically, you have a beautiful place to park with 30 amps of electric, and that worked for us. The Grotto is beautiful and a MUST SEE even if you aren't Catholic. - Ginny H

The grotto is spectacular. Actually I think there are 9 grottos. Each a masterpiece made of rocks and gems from all over the world. Not to be missed if your in the area. There is a beautiful lush green front lawn that has electrical connections and picnic tables. Off to the side of the grotto is a camping area with more designated campsite area with electric, picnic table and fire ring. The restroom/shower is in this area. I did not use it but I checked it out. It was not very nice but usable. The is a water station and a dump station that was easy to get to. Both camping areas had scattered shade trees. The grotto is in a residential area of the town. Very quiet except for an occasional train. Easy in and out. Gas and groceries a couple blocks away. This is a nice overnight spot and a great place to sit a spell and explore the beauty of the Grotto. Stayed here 2 days in a motorhome. Would definitely stay again. - camper19709

Small campground with 30 amp electric only, dump station and you need to fill water. Shade trees and picnic tables, Wi-Fi was good and got a fair Verizon service. This is a very quiet park except for the noon whistle that is next to the park and occasional train. It is a short walk to the Grotto of the Redemption that has nine different grottos of the life of Christ, and a museum with a large collection of rocks and petrified wood. - Tim M.

Use this campground as a backup when the town campground is full. Cost $15 to camp with electric - plus my wife and myself both get breakfast the next morning. Cheap camping. But, I shouldn't call it camping. Limited activities and no trees and cannot have fire. But for the passer by - would be a good stop over. - schemmy

Great find: very clean, well located RV Park with a very nice casino in addition. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that two free buffet breakfasts were included in the ridiculously low nightly rate. The park is well maintained, sits on a nice little man-made lake and is next to a relatively new, very nice casino with several restaurant options. Only reason we didn't rate this a 10 is because of the lack of sewer and cable TV. - CaptainNemo

All sites are back-in and level. 30/50 amps at all posts. It's a short walk to the casino, no shuttle. $15 a night includes continental breakfast, use of the hotel pool, hot tub and work out room. This casino is very clean and only 4 years old. Buffet and restaurant are OK. We stayed four nights in a 38 footer. - wrready2

Pretty small grass sites with some sites with water at the electrical boxes. Right on the East Fork of the DM River. Great playground, horseshoe pits, near walking trail, very helpful host. - Crop Guy
