6 RV Parks near Denison, Iowa
Jun 2017 - $18.00
Please note: this review is for the Yellow Smoke Park, part of the county park system - I did not see anything specific f0r that park for Denison. The park is very scenic, with a small pond. Quite wooded, so we couldn't get satellite TV, but there were a couple stations we could pull in via the powered antenna. The Verizon signal was weak, but made adequate with a booster. The sites have water and electric (not all), and the water was not close to the site. There is a sewer dump on the way out of the park. Self-register after selecting a site. We would definitely stay here again. - DreamCaptn

Nice small county park with a small lake, fishing, and sand beach. There are 2 RV camping areas. The lower CG has a few good-sized back-ins facing the lake (we stayed in one of these), across from the boat ramp. You continue up the hill to the larger upper CG where most of the sites are, along with the bathrooms, showers and dump station. We were here right when the park opened for the season, CG nearly empty. It was very quiet, except on Sunday when a large group used the picnic area across the road. The county conservation officer/caretaker was very nice and helpful. They were still doing some spring cleanup, but the park was in very good condition. $15 electric sites, $12 non-electric, no reservations. I imagine it gets busy on summer weekends. - JA1800

Campground is within beautiful county park w/fishing lake, paved trails, nature center. We were in lower campground w/back in sites. Plenty room to back in 37' 5th wheel with room to park p/u. Lots of colorful shade trees. No sewer, but dump station. - Danalex

This is specifically a review of the north campground, at the top of the hill. This is a newer campground with sites suitable for longer RVs like our 41 foot MH. The lower campground sites appear to be shorter. Water and electric only, with solid power. No shade in the north campground, but the lower one has lots of trees. Hookups are side-by-side, with alternate parking direction required to reach the utilities. Our stay here was quite nice. There was at most one other RV in this CG midweek, so it was quiet. The lower CG was busier. The park itself is nice, with a lake, shelters and nice views. Self-register, no reservations. Verizon phone and internet worked here. - JA1800

Make reservations before arriving. Reservations can be made with Kiron City Hall. The campground is right on the all grass ball field with 15amp electricity available at the light poles. There are no sites, just park where you'd like, in somewhat flat area. A single water spigot is available. My Verizon worked here. We might return. - AluminumCloud

Very well kept park. Nice grassy and shaded sites. No problems with my satellite and WiFi was great. Only parked overnight but if plans could have been changed, I would stay longer. Love it. - Gypsygirl2017

Nothing fancy about this place - the name says it all: it is in the backyard of the owners, with farmland all around. The site was reasonably level, but just grass - if it had been rainy, I could see where it could be soft for a heavy RV. The sign on the door said to pick a site and someone would come around to collect... they didn't, but they do have envelopes so you can self-pay/register. It was adequate for an overnight, and we would stay here again if in the area. - DreamCaptn

Nice county park. Most of the sites have a view of the lake. Nice long trail that goes around the whole lake, take some water, it's quite a hike. My dog kicked up about 40 pheasants on our walk. There are sites with electric only on the top level and electric and water on the lower level as well as tent sites. There was a camp host trailer there but no host was around. Nice swimming beach. The main highway between Ida Grove and Battle Creek was closed so I had to drive around to find the best way to the campground. Would definitely stay here again. - taddyport

This is a park in the city run by the honor system. No reservations just show up pay and put site number on envelope. They collect each day. The sites are mostly in a grassy field or with some gravel under the trees. Big rigs can enter half the campground with no problem but navigating the whole campground is not possible. I have camped here in a 42 foot and 34 foot class a. The bath house is really dark and not very updated and is somewhat dirty. I used my coaches facilities. In fact I would rate the bathhouse a 1 on a 1 to 10 scale. The rest of the park is a 6. The grassy field can get pretty soft if it rains a lot. There is a nice pond and veterans memorial at the park. It is the only game in town and many times road crews and construction people will camp there for extended times. - John S.
