No reservations accepted, walk-in only. Quiet peaceful campground with walking trails through beautiful wooded area. Walking/horse trails are not for the weak or frail! These trails have some very steep hills. Trails are well marked and wide. Water is not the best, so we did not use it in our camper, definitely would need a water filter system if you hooked up to the hydrant. I boiled water to make baggie omelets, and had a good amount of sediment in the bottom of my pan when I dumped it. Restrooms/showers were rustic, but clean and had good pressure for showers. Road entering campground is dirt and very steep and had large washed out ruts along the side of it. I would worry about getting out pulling a camper if it rained very much. Small pond for fishing. I would definitely come again, very nice place. - livin'the_life

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

Nice and new! Quiet. The green-grass campsites are very wide; another trailer could fit between each site. Built in 2012, the campgrounds on the northwest corner of the fairgrounds is not yet on Google maps. But you can see it from Google Earth - just use the address 105 15th Street North. Trees have been planted, but none are large enough to cast shade or privacy yet. Picnic tables can be requested. Fire rings are also available on request. There is no on-site campground host, so calling ahead would be a good idea. The campground is flat, the gravel road is flat, and the gravel campsites are flat. Being new the gravel depth is more shallow than old campgrounds, but is very well maintained. Each back-in site is oriented west-east and is long enough for a big motor home with a towed vehicle. The sites on the west side of the main road have a small curb on the west end, and could be used for pull-throughs for some trailers. All sites have electricity for anyone staying - 50 amp and 30 amp and 20 amp. Water to fill your tanks is available only at the south east corner and a hose there may not be available. Bathroom without showers is available on the fairgrounds, not in the campground - AKA "quite a hike". No dump station at all. Outside of town there are 3 options -- 1) Lewis & Clark State Park. 2) KOA. 3) on Interstate I-29 and just SOUTH of Onawa at the rest stops (both North and south bound). Children and dogs are welcome, but there are not play areas for them. Nearby attractions include Lewis & Clark's keelboat Museum and replica boat on lake. Within a short drive are the Loess Hills made from centuries of windblown dirt. North is Sergeant Floyd Monument (only person to die on Lewis & Clark expedition) and Sioux City's famous Palmer Candy Company. One thing to note, the campground supervisor has another job preparing taxes. So if you need help in April, be persistent and have patience. We will return. - AluminumCloud

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

This park is a regular stop on our trips to and from the west. Friendly and organized, utilities are fine. Very convenient to I-29 but minimal road noise. - gumper

We stayed for three nights. Easy access on and off I-29. Level gravel spots, gravel roads (no dust). Large old trees, but there were sites with more satellite accessibility. Owners were great and very helpful. Good enough WiFi. Restrooms were much better inside that they looked on the outside. Two truck stops near with very good fuel prices, but not any real noise at night. We would definitely stay here again. - Kalama Traveler

This is a beautiful old park with 100+ year old trees. Roads are well maintained gravel (no pot-holes). Owners are friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We've been doing this for over 50 years and ,aside from resorts, this is the nicest park we've stayed in. - User3588

Big place so bring a bicycle or drive there. It's quite a ways from the swimming beach to the campsites. You can tent camp closer to the beach / fishing pond but RV pads are farther. Two nice playgrounds for kids. Overall it's a nice place, we would go back. - iowasparrow

If you come through the main drag of Correctionville, you will need to do a 1/2 block jog. This is a correction in the survey lines and 3 townships meet at this corner. Playground equipment is located near the campground. Four camping cabins are available for rent as well. Approximately 50 non-electrical campsites are located on the west side of the lake with access to modern restrooms and showers. The Union Bridge Trail connects the park to the town of Correctionville with a ten foot wide concrete path that winds through scenic areas and crossing the Little Sioux River with a spectacular bridge. The 10-acre lake has angling opportunities for large-mouth bass, bluegill and channel catfish. Only electric trolling motors, oars and paddles are allowed on all county owned lakes. There is a designated swimming beach area. Hiking trails offer opportunities to explore the marsh, native trees, shrub plantings, native prairies and food plots. - stetwood

When we arrived, the camp was having a chili cook-off and everyone was invited. We had a great site with a fair amount of room between campers. Lake is beautiful and there is a pool, playground, BB court, etc. Campground has a small store. I got the feeling there were many people there who stayed for a long time and groups who camped there together every summer perhaps. We were just there for one night on a longer trip and it satisfied all of our needs. - RV Sailor

Onawa was our halfway stop from a trip home from South Dakota. About 5 minutes before we pulled into Onawa, our camper started making a terrible noise. Problem....blown axle. The staff provided us with possible repairmen, but it was a Friday night. They assured us we could stay at least 2 more nights in the event we could not get anyone to come. We were blessed because a repairman fixed our camper so we could leave Sunday morning. The staff helped make a bad situation much more comfortable! Thank you SO much. - Ferber Camping

The park is on the shore of Blue Lake. While our site wasn’t on the lake shore, we could easily see the lake.
The young lady at the desk was very pleasant and explained all the rules and location of facilities very clearly. - larryo

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.

The park was nice but due to confusion with the reservation site I ended up paying for 3 sites. I booked a pull through which I thought had sewer by the lake which ended up being 2 sites and no sewer. I contacted Reserve America and was told I could make the change when I got there. I talked to someone at the park and they said the sewer were first come first serve and if I got one then I could make the change. The campground host has no authority to make changes or access to the system and so the 2 spots I reserved remained empty for 5 days in a full park. The price is great but be sure and learn from my mistake. The best thing is to pull in around 1 and get one of the full hook ups if you are coming during the week. It fills up quick on the weekend. - rl1962

We stayed for two nights mid-week but had to vacate on Friday as the park was completely full for the weekend. (Not a holiday weekend). The attendant at the museum was VERY knowledgeable about all things Lewis & Clark. A wealth of information. Park is well kept. Spaces are good size and pretty level. Nice walking trails, but bring insect repellent. - rdrunner

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
