Spent 2 nights here fishing the trout stream that runs throughout the park and empties into the Maquoketa River at the edge of the park. There are many nice trails and a great playground for the kids. They also have a family of deer, a turkey and pheasants that you can see in an enclosure next to the playground. The beach on the river is a great place to wade, swim or launch a kayak. There are areas where more families were camping but also areas that were secluded and quiet so you have options depending on what you are looking for. Many sites were electric and water hookup but also lots of tent camping sites too. The one drawback is: it's first come first serve with no online reservations. With the number of sites, it wasn't a problem to find a spot. We camped at Bailey's Ford Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If you like the sound of a babbling brook, there are many sites that border the trout stream. Check online for the DNR trout stocking schedule for the best times to fish.

This is a very well kept county park,it is however a very tight fit for larger units. The trout stream is the draw for this park, as the DNR stocks it for the weekend campers. No reservations so one has to get there early for a spot, however well worth it. From the nature center to the many walking trails there is enough to keep you busy. We camped at Bailey's Ford Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This county park is bordered by the Maquoketa River on one end and a trout stream runs the length. There are 2 short walking paths, a nice playground, and a nature center. There is a tent (primitive area), electric only, and electric/water sites available. This is a nice quiet park with good fishing, friendly campers and the Delaware County staff is wonderful. We camped at Bailey's Ford Park in a Travel Trailer.
