A lot of workers living at park. Connected to motel next door where you can use there nice indoor pool. Very basic campground next to the highway. Pull thru sites. - Bjb1775

The only downside side is proximity it to highway and railroad. Very pleasant management, restaurant and bar on premises. Level, gravel sites. - Farmer Joe

First time here. The park and the motel are run together. We have a pull thru in which we were able to remain hitched. The sites are none too level. Hwy 34 passes between the motel and the rv park. We called earlier and made a reservation. Because of that we just pulled into our appointed site and then walked across the highway to register. We were given two coupons for free drinks at the adjoining restaurant. We went there for dinner and were able to have a very nice meal for less than $20!! There is a rail line behind the park which is active. We are not bothered by train noise. We would return, and would recommend this park to friends. - shovelguy

This is an old city park. It was built in the 60's and little has changed. The sites are in clusters of 4 and might require extra power and water hoses depending on which site you are located. The sites are a mixture of concrete on dirt / grass. As mentioned it is a city park with many activities going on by the locals. Security is by the police periodically driving through. It is conveniently located next to Hwy 34, however there is not much road noise. After checking in, you just pick any vacant spot. There are no discounts. - A hitch and hop

We stayed here one night on 4th of July weekend. The park was almost full when we arrived late. It had been raining so everyone's firewood was wet. Smoke was so bad that we closed our windows and vents and ran the AC. Our site was water & electric. There was no CATV. We could not connect to the WIFI. Cell service was adequate to use as a hot spot to access to the internet. Access roads inside the park are good. the sites were easy to back into. The toilet building is not adequate for the number of people using it. - R V Camper

We spent a quick overnight here and that was all we needed, and wanted. We managed to find a pull-through site because the site behind us was unoccupied. The electric service worked well. The water pressure was about 80 lbs. so make sure you use a regulator before you hook up. Many of the other campers seemed to be permanent: antique old RVs that don't appear able to be moved, even though there is supposedly a 2 week stay limit. We didn't have any problem but did not feel secure either. Although we didn't use them, we did check out the restrooms to see if improvements have been made since the last review. We are happy to note that security locks are now in place on the entry doors to the restrooms, meaning the general public does not have access. The facilities appeared to be clean but as a previous reviewer stated, there is no enclosed dressing area for each shower and probably no economical way to fix the situation either since all walls are concrete block. It was noisy at night too. The park borders busy US Hwy 34 and the trains are not far away either. We heard train horns all night long as they issued their warnings at the many grade crossings. All in all we were glad we were only staying one night. - RVeron

An excellent place to stay. Seniors with national park pass get in for half price. This one of the best setup experiences I've ever had in 3 years of RVing; the site was dead level front to back and side to side. - Arby473

We spent two nights at the Howell Station Recreation Area in May 2018 in our 39' fifth wheel. We really enjoy COE campgrounds and this was the best we've stayed at. The campground is absolutely gorgeous with many mature trees and lush grass. There is a large amount of space between sites. The Des Moines River runs along the campground and there are well-maintained walking trails beside it. The campground is quite big rig friendly. All the sites are back-ins but the road is fairly wide so backing in wasn't too difficult. Although all the sites have 50 amp electric, there is no water nor sewer connections at the sites due to the many trees. There are large dump stations by the entrance and drinking water is available there. We would definitely return to this campground if in the area. - Phil G

This is an excellent campground. Sites are well spaced and quite large. Biking path is great and can be taken all the way into Pella. Campsites are well-maintained and easy to get into. It's an easy walk to the river and the boat launch is close by. We had good reception on phones (AT&T), MiFi (Verizon) and Dish TV. There are 4 dump stations with fresh water available. Hosts are friendly and helpful. - Bobbi1948

Great waterfront site at a great rate. Easy walk to beautiful lake. Sites are good size. Antenna TV worked well. Some road noise due to construction at dam. Bathrooms and showers were fine, just a tad old, dark and somewhat dusty. I saw zero spiders but there were some cobwebs on the ceiling. We stayed 2 nights and at that price with that view, I'd stay again. - RvCandyP

On entering the Park, we were greeted enthusiastically by volunteers and loaded up with materials about local events and other things we could use. Very nicely done! Rated bathrooms very low because of large amounts of cob webs at the ceilings and floors. Toilets were clean, but showers had lots of soap scum built up. Grounds were relatively clean, but did notice scraps of paper everywhere. Looks like papers and other refuse was just mowed over with no effort made to pick it up before mowing. - Linda and Jim

Bits of litter about, roads are narrow but doable. Some sites need a bit of leveling. Some sites have lots of shade, all sites have shade at some time during the day. Helpful hosts and rangers. Had an electrical issue and they had an electrician at our site with 10 minutes, very impressed! Decent spacing, not as much as some COE campgrounds but enough that you didn't feel as you were intruding on your neighbor. We would definitely stay again if in the area. It was quiet and dark for good sleeping. - JonesAussies

We had a spot right on the lake - but it was being drained. This is an old CCC park that has some wonderful facilities, but the campgrounds need some updating. Roads are tight but doable. Restrooms were fine, but limited. It was OK for our visit, but I'd hate to see it at capacity. But they say there are some improvements in the works. - LEHogie

Very nice park with a lot of the sites having at least a partial lake view. The roads were wide enough to accommodate larger RV's. The sites are somewhat terraced and seem to become more level farther from the shoreline. Although there was no water on site, the spigots appeared to be spaced good enough so that with a few sections of hose you could refill without moving your RV. The deer were pretty thick within the park and on the area roads in the late afternoon and early mornings so be cautious while driving. - RKL

Good fishing lake with very clear water. The campground is family friendly and has a playground. The bathrooms are very clean. There is a 7 mile wooded hiking trail around the perimeter of the lake. The park also has a nice swimming beach with a bathhouse, restaurant and boat rental. Many of the sites are not level. If you reserve on the Iowa DNR site it will indicate if the site is level or not. We would go there again. - Cornboy

This campground is great for views of the lake; however, the gravel road leading in to the campground is TERRIBLE. Not sure if we would come back here just because of the 3+ miles of very bad gravel roads. Our motor home was throwing stuff all over because of the very uneven surface and poorly graded gravel.
The restrooms on property were the worst smelling I've ever been to.
The positives almost outweigh the negatives though: great views, close to the lake, walk down an embankment to sandy beach (technically not supposed to swim from, but we did anyway).
There is a small playground for kids, no swings. We stayed in Loop A, which was about 1 mile down from the entrance. This park is VERY big. Also close proximity to the boat dock. Once in the park, the roads are paved and in good condition. Our only issue was the few miles of gravel road to get TO the park. - Travelaire

Great Corps of Engineers park. Fairly typical services for a COE park. No water available in the "A" campground but spigots around in "B". Rate is the "Senior" rate. Very pleasant and very quiet. - User988

The resort itself is beautiful, The campsites has all concrete pull through sites with full hook ups. However, there is no shower house, no shade, no Wi-Fi. The pool and water park is at least half mile away. For the price not worth it to us. Don't be misled, another State Park is a short distance away w full hook ups, see the reviews. - joebren

Stayed here, as we have for the two previous years. The experience was 'consistent'. Virtually no other RVers, great site near the lake, lots to do here for us and our dogs. The golf course is a great experience, and no rain this year helped. My wife got to 'track' her dogs and really enjoyed it a lot, except for the ticks. Still no cable TV and internet was almost non-existent. Still a very good time. - Pigdoc

Love this resort. The staff is employed by an consultant agency and not DNR state employees. They are not knowledgeable in the activities that go on with the resort and will not offer you any information. Research the resort on the website for their activities before you go. Campground is clean, needs more readable signs for directions to some of the sites. There are no bathrooms or shower house available for campers. All activities require you to drive to them. We camped for 3 nights with a small dog. Our 11 year old loved the water park. - cybrsynrgy

Rate reflects Access Pass Discount. This COE campground is pristine. Grounds and restrooms are very, very well maintained. Camp host was extremely helpful even when we arrived on his day off. There are many sites with water views. Reservations can be difficult to obtain for weekends, however, during the week it is very peaceful and quiet. Our only complaint is for a large rig it is difficult to find level sites. We would not reserve site unseen on line due to this fact.
There are other COE campgrounds (Island and Bridge View) in the area which have more level sites for big rigs.
Verizon Cell phone signal was good. - Wgcamper

I believe we were overcharged for a 30amp, and no discounts were offered (guess we should have asked as we do belong to a couple groups). Loved it though. Spots are big and level, so peaceful (busier during summer I imagine as it is a beautiful lake for water activities). Close to Centerville for some shopping or even a movie. Do wish, however, that it had full hookups. We will be back, and have our spot picked out! - Enjoying_Retirement

Nice paved roads with gravel sites. Has fire rings at each site and baths are conveniently located. Nice lake for boating and fishing. Close to Honey Creek Resort state park which has a motel, restaurant, water park and golf course. These are all accessible without a park vehicle day use permit. Wish there were some walking trails. - rhadley6

Volunteer check-in staff was very friendly, and helpful. Toilets and showers were very clean and well stocked. We did NOT like the lack of dumpsters for garbage, and that the sites were not very level and were mostly loose gravel. The COE rangers drove through a few times but hardly slowed down on their rounds. Flying insects were a problem for us as well. Most likely will not return to this particular campground. - Linda and Jim

Great park; friendly staff; clean restrooms. Spacious sites. Close to Pella. Our loop (#34) had nice lake view. A good number of first come first serve sites. - Linda Johnson

Well the campsite was nice, but the grass was brown. They have tent camping, but complain if you pitch one up. I got a slip on the tent "you're killing our grass please take down". If you're here to fish Lake Red Rock fair warning!! Bring your own bait because the closest shop is 20 miles away and if you ask the locals they have no clue. Its a real nice lake but no lake bait shop and the gas dock opens at 9am and closes at 2pm. So bring gas as it's 4.75 a gallon for 87 octane. The campground does not enforce the 10pm quiet time because at 2 am the campers were lighting off fire works. If you like college frat parties you will like this. Drunk boater camping here after a day on the water. All night long yelling and stumbling around the camp. We reported them every night, but no change. We will not come back because we talked to others and they say it's like this every weekend. - duramax man
