The best public park we have stayed in. Long, mostly level back in. Easy to back in for people like me who struggle to back in. Kudos to the camp host for keeping the bathrooms very clean. Shaded sites and plenty of room. Near town but quiet. Strongly recommend. We camped at Marion County Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great FSU county park. The pads are long and for the most part level. This may be the only county park in Iowa that gives a $2.00 discount for having an America the Beautiful card. We camped at Marion County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice county park. Water and sewer are now available at individual sites, though not all sites have sewer yet (website has a map with amenities available at each site). Sites are gravel and some leveling will be required. The park has tons of trees and has some modest hills. Electricty and water were fine. Very relaxing feel to this park, and it was quiet. I was there on a race weekend, and it was pretty full. Bath house looked in good shape, I didn't use it but others in the group said it was very clean. This park was a great setting for our large group of race fans. I don't believe the park is very busy other than for a handful of the biggest race weekends at Knoxville Raceway. The group I was a part of has already reserved for next year, and seems to be growing each year. This was a very satisfactory park to stay in, and I look forward to returning. We camped at Marion County Park in a Travel Trailer.

A very pretty county park. There are water bibs every couple of sites, but hook-ups are not allowed. There was one close enough to us to fill our tank without moving. All grassy sites, very well maintained, some a little uneven and of varying size. We were here at the start of the Labor Day weekend, park was filling up with a lot of family groups. Lots of kids and dogs, but very quiet. A bit smoky as most people spent the evening sitting around their fire rings. Easy access to dump station which has a water bib with hose for flushing tanks. The park is close to Knoxville Speedway (Sprint Car Capital of the World). There maybe some noise on race nights, but no races while we were here. The obligatory train crossing was far enough away to be acceptable. Rate for electric only was $14, we paid $12 with the America the Beautiful senior pass. We would stop here again, although it is a bit off the interstate. We camped at Marion County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park. No traffic noise. Located next to Marion County Historical Village. Very convenient to grocery stores and restaurants. Located about 15 miles from the Dutch community of Pella. We camped at Marion County Park in a Motorhome.
