4 RV Parks near Creston, Iowa
Apr 2009 - $20.00
Construction in progress. Long site but the swing room to get into a site was very limited. It will take some planning with a long rig with a toad. I would not drive out of our way to get here, but we were going right by. Directions to park are very limited. Self register, but owner is on site looking out the window. - run2

A nice little park no listed in any travel guide I could find. I happened on the park by an old Google hit from Woodall's (it is no longer listed in Woodall's.) This park is just fine for an overnight stay in an area where RV parks are few and far between. The park seems to be in the owners' front yard, but there is plenty of room for big rigs with tows. The power was "clean" and good water pressure (city water) and there were two sewer hookups at each site (front and rear.) The park is just a couple of blocks south of Hwy 34 on the west side of Creston. We would definitely stay here again for a day or two. - OpaRon

Park has both reservable and walk up sites. Reservations via web site come with a $4 service fee but does guarantee the site. Walk ups are first come first served and are self service with a registration drop post for payment. Ratio of reservable to walk up is about 4 to 1. Standard sites are either back in or pull through. Buddy sites are back in and are priced as 2 or 4 times the nightly rate depending on how many buddy sites are joined, 2 or in one case 4 sites. Sites are priced as full hookup, water and electric, electric only, no electric and tent. There are also several cabin rentals. Price shown is full hookup walk up price. Interior roads are paved. Both 30 & 50 amp service worked fine. Water pressure was good but did fluctuate a little from time to time. Hydrants placed centrally in electric only areas and we saw long hose runs from some of these to camp sites, often sharing the hookup. As mentioned by others, sewer hookup is up hill from the parking pad but is manageable with a hose elevation 'snake'. Two separate bath houses to service the park. Sewer dump located next to the exit. Kids playground appeared well maintained. Good view of the lake from most sites and a nice walking/biking path along part of the lake is 3.5 miles long. As a bonus, numerous geocaches have been placed along and pnear the path. Saw lots of wildlife in and near the lake. Lake has a swim beach, several boat ramps and fishing piers. Powered watercraft is limited to outboard only. No jet skis allowed. Some OTA TV channels but no major networks. Verizon signal 2-3 bars so internet access and phone was okay. There is a campground host but we only saw them once in 3 days. Saw the park ranger each day. This is really a boating and fishing park but is also good for hiking, geocaching, biking and birding. - Bobco

Showers do not drain well and therefore sometimes you are standing in water as you shower. Restrooms shoul be cleaned more often during busy weekends. Lake is beautiful. - sp123

Green Valley is a 1060-acre park with a 390 acre lake. The campground is in a quiet, rural location near the lake. There were a lot of shade trees and good views of the lake from most RV sites. The roads are paved with gravel RV sites. Our site was fairly level with an excellent view of the lake. Some sites are rather close to each other. There are 18 full hook-up RV sites, 65 electric-only and several tent campsites. There are several buddy sites and even a quad-buddy site where 4 campers can form their own courtyard. There were also 3 rustic, log cabins, each with a boat dock you can rent. All sites had picnic tables and fire rings.
There are two modern restroom/shower buildings, a playground and a dump station. Water faucets were scattered throughout the park. Half the campsites are walkup - first come/first serve while the other half and the 3 cabins can be reserved online. The lake had several boat ramps, numerous docks and fishing piers. There's a 10 mile trail that circles the lake. The DNR is in the process of laying cement bike paths around several portions of the lake. - OTR-again

Very nice park. Quiet, clean. Cool bridge as you enter. Winterset is a nice little town. - Jules RV

Nice little park near Winterset IA. Water and power hookups, but shared between sites, so we were lucky to have enough hose and extension to hookup. 2 Sections - one with lots of trees, one flat and open. On the tree section we were in, odd numbered sites were NOT very level - we could not get to level despite having front wheels in the air... Sites varied in length, mine could have taken a 45 footer, the one next to me would have been tight with 30... Great access to winterset, lots of county parks and the bridges of madison county.... 12"6' bridge and 90' corner at entry, manageable, but be careful :D. - piston9

This location is 4 miles SW of Winterset in a nice park setting. There is a tunnel with a low ceiling, but our 10 1/2 footer fit fine. We pulled in and were greeted by the host and he pointed us in the right direction. The sites have a concrete pad on the back, so the tires can be on concrete if you like. We chose to stay in front so the stabilizers could be on concrete. They have electric, but it was quite a ways away. We needed an extension cord. They have water, but it too is quite a ways away and we needed an extra hose. Sewer dump is located on site and works well. No wi-fi here and the bathrooms/showers were a little rough. Nice park, just a bit rough and rural. - mlbpafan

This is a small, quiet, grass campground located on the edge of town at the County Fairground. Sites are mostly level and water is available from hydrants with a long hose. Would be a 10 if they had a dump station available, but contact the city maintenance and they will allow you to dump in city sewer in town for a small fee. For the price and location, it is a good value and we have stayed there several times while visiting family in area. - Bullrider
