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

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

This is a city park with full hookups. The sites are back-in, but fairly level. View out the rear window is buildings. No showers or restrooms we were aware of. A nice city park is right out the front door. There is a large grass area for dog walking. Well worth the price. - RedSoloCup

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

We stay here frequently. Playground for kids, sand beach, mini-golf. Sometimes they don't have enough fire rings, but that usually only happens when the place is full. - iowasparrow

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

We booked online making the trip out west to South Dakota. We arrived in the evening traveling from KY. There was no one at the desk when we arrived and we never saw anyone in there for the two nights we stayed. We stayed there cause of the Sauk Rail Trail to ride the bikes on with the kids. Restrooms were clean but didn't seems like showers got cleaned as much. The water sits in the lake and there are bugs everywhere at night. The views are good and overall the park is ok. - StephR
