9 RV Parks near Kiron, Iowa
Jun 2015 - $15.00
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

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

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.

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

Immediately upon my arrival I was confronted by the campground hostess about the 5 mph speed limit in the campground. She said that she had two complaints about me driving fast. I was trying to find my site and didn't realize that maybe I was driving fast. I apologized profusely and told her I didn't realize I was driving too fast and I would slow down. She said I almost hit her grandchildren. (I saw the grandchildren riding recklessly through camp and had stopped long before they passed me). Again, I apologized, and she held out her hand and yelled at me "5 miles per hour". I found my site, was setting up and a gentlemen rides and tells me I need to slow down. I told him I had already been warned. He said he had a complaint that I was going 30 miles per hour through camp. I told him I could not have been going that fast. I asked him if he was the campground host and he said "yes". Now I may have going a little faster than 5 mph per hour but not much as I was looking for my name on the site posts. I had apologized told the hostess and the host that I would make sure I was driving 5 miles per hour, but they would not let up. I did not need to be talked to in that manner. As for the kids riding bikes in camp, they were darting in and out of sites and riding all over the roads, faster that 5 mph and without helmets. They could have hit a parked car and the driver would have been blamed for hitting them. This whole confrontation and attitude by the hostess and host upon my arrival cast a pallor over my whole week-end at the campground. The campground was nice, but the restrooms were dirty. There was a toilet missing in the men's restroom. The towns of Lakeview, Breda and Carroll were nice as was the ride on the Sauk Rail Trail. The rest of the people I met during the weekend on my bike rides were very nice. - wblretiredffmike

Pulled in very late and took first available site. Woke up in the morning to find beautiful setting. Good area for walking/biking. We didn't get a chance to swim or kayak but that was available. Great pull through sites. Clean campground. Restrooms/showers are old but in ok shape. Free showers/hot water. - CDG

BHSP's grounds, campsites, utilities, modern restroom/shower building(hot water, good pressure) were rustic but well-maintained and patrolled by DNR staff on a daily basis while we were there. Most non-lakefront sites were shady; there were about 10 pull-thrus. A dump station, potable water faucets, small playground, picnic shelter, beach, boat ramp, cabin were available. Our back-in electric site was level, graveled shady. We booked ahead thru Reserve America. 1st-come, walk-up self-registration sites are also available. (See their website for additional site, amenities, reservation info) The lake is shallow and being mostly surrounded by shore-front homes; has problems with strong algae growth from lawn fertilizer. They are using a paddle-wheel type boat that cuts off and scoops up the algae all day long to combat this. Also, a large resident Canada geese population regularly fertilizes the outer edges of the campground, so watch your step. Note - it looks like the parks Blossom Street address is for the rental cabin? It turns into S. State Rd which leads to Black Hawk State Park campground; approximately 2 miles past the cabin between Quincy Ave and Rolf Ave (M54) on the SE corner of the lake. - OTR-again

Nice park, as I wanted off interstates. Finally found cell service, and was good thing that day. Bonus was a music in the park, boats on the water, short walk, very friendly town folks. Great musicians. Just ended up being a stop over in nowhere. Much fun that could never be duplicated. - NXTSTOP

Beautiful, clean park with good distance between units. On lakeshore with lots of space to walk our dog. We stayed after Oct. 1, when they go to half-price rates for the off-season. Normal rates are $22. There were only 3 units at our end of the park, so it was very quiet. While our spot was dirt/grass, there were ample hard surface pads. Even so, we backed in to a level spot. This park would've rated a 9 or 10 except for 3 items:
1. As a city-owned park, you'd think city ordinances that might affect campers would be highlighted. Lake View has a city ordinance prohibiting pit bulls and rottweilers inside the city limits. The only thing the web site said was "Pets welcome"; no mention of breed restrictions. We didn't discover this until after we arrived, despite calling ahead to see if they'd have space and if dogs were OK. It's almost a month after our stay and there is still no mention of breed restrictions on the web site.
2. There were no registration forms for late arrivals in the box by the office. This meant no guidance on the breed restriction issue or anything else. We opted to take our chances and, if our Rottweiler caused an issue, I told the staff we'd be sure to mention these failings in court.
3. Because we arrived after the office closed, we had no ability to access the WiFi the first night because they require payment before giving you the password. This wasn't mentioned when I called ahead; I'd have given them a credit card number in advance. - Dobiedaddy

A very clean park but sites are very close together. Sites are gravel and easy to get into. Cell phone and internet card worked well. Would stay here again if in area. - ds4006

This is a jewel of a county campground. Nice folks tending it, wonderful park. We only saw the campsites but I think there's a fishing hole within walking distance. Great stay. Showers are a little creepy, but did the job. - User2084

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

We found this little gem after discovering that another park was full. This park has many mature trees over a lot of the sites, and godsend during the hot, oppressive weather we endured during our stay. We did not stay over a weekend, so don't know how busy it might be then. The sites included 30- and 50-amp power and water, both of which were strong. The pull-through sites were plenty long for a motor home and car or trailer, and they were gravel as were the interior roads. Our site was level enough to not require our jacks. This place probably would be a perfect "10" with sewer hookups at the sites and walking trails, but there were several trails at other nearby parks, and the dump station was fine for our 3-night stay. There was equipment for kids to play on, and plenty of open areas for dogs to run. We really liked this park and added an extra night. - LowesTravels
