Stayed here two nights on our way through Iowa. Self-serve check-in, with drop box for cash payments, was easy. Nice wooded setting with surprisingly good free wifi. Our FHU back-in site was level and quiet with ample space between sites. Site was long enough that we did not have to disconnect the 5th wheel. Roads were open enough to drive around easily with our big rig, and easily back in. We were back away from the lake, but there are a few water/electric only sites near the water with lake views. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. - Wayne60

Quiet, beautiful and heavily treed, some lakeside sites. Very well maintained level sites and the best Wi-Fi signal we've ever had at a campground. We were the only campers on our visit. The only even sort of negative thing I could say is that the bathrooms were basic and unheated. It was 40 degrees this morning! But there was lots of hot water in the showers. - Nortguy

Wonderful Iowa County Park in large forested area. Campsites are spread out and range from full hookups to electric only to tent and no hook ups. Hiking trails, fishing, boating and even golf! The full hook up sites are a bit confusing- look at the map in self- registration kiosk. Many are designed for large or small groups with RV's and circle or square off in wagon train style!
The electric only sites are over a small creek and spaced out a bit more. Weekends are busy with lots of local families camping. - NanciRV

We arrived mid-week for a one night stay. The campground host was friendly and helped us find a spot that we could drive into and out of (it was not really a drive-through but the ground was firm so we did not damage the grass). The sites with full hookups are $25, electric-only are $20.
The sites are quite level. They are crushed stone. There is a fire ring and picnic table for each site.
Iowa county parks are very nice. This is another one. - skigramp

Very poorly designed park. Fire pits way too close to the parking - Less than 5 feet! Had to use the one from the empty spot next to us. No pull throughs and the backing in to the spots almost impossible because they are too narrow. Bathroom is nearly a whole city block from the closest campsite. No place to sit while dressing in the shower area. No mirrors at all in the bathroom or shower. It is built to be a storm shelter, but as I said, no where to sit- and seriously, a block to run in dangerous weather? They do have stalls for handicap accessibility - but being so far from the campgrounds it is kind of pointless. This campgrounds is fairly new, and should be much better shape than it is. The views are pretty, has a boat ramp, good fishing and the dam is very close. Nice playground by the bathroom - but who wants to send your kids that far away and out of site from the campgrounds? Only a couple of spots long enough for larger campers and there has always been someone parked in them. You would have to back in, unhook your Tow vehicle and park it in the visitor parking. We have a little SUV and our trailer only 12' and we took up the whole slot. Bad cellular reception. No camp hosts. If you have a problem you are on your own! - Wisernow

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

RV sites are in the northeast corner of the park and easy to miss if coming from I-35. Park would be on your left and the only signs are inside the park itself. Long gravel sites surrounded by grass. Shared hook-ups,but plenty of room between sites. We were the only ones here. Well cared for. No water even to fill tank. Quiet. Good value for the money. - bjandjim

Overnight stop was very pleasant. Gravel for RV, grass all other areas (well cared for landscaping) fire rings. Quiet--about a mile from I-35. No reservations, first come basis. We would here stay again. - john rv

Run by the Cerro Gordo County Conservation Board just one mile west of I-35 at exit 180 has 30 amp side by side electric on gravel pads that are pretty much level situated in a loop around a huge grassy area with a playground and picnic pavilion. Water and dump available near the shower building which although dated was pretty clean. A nice campground for a good stopover at reasonable rates. - cakehead

One of the nicest camp sites we've ever stayed in! Camp host was great. 2 week limit then must leave for 72 hours before moving back. NO RSVP's taken, 1st come, first serve so people paid for spaces all week but didn't show up till weekend. Pretty open during week but busy weekends & packed out holidays! Wifi didn't work but great Verizon coverage. Check website. Loved this place! - User3782
