Beautiful park on Viking Lake. Quiet, clean, camp host very helpful. Why only average rairing.. .very unlevel lots. - Long01
May 2017 - $16.00
Great park to visit. Great amenities in the campground. Water in the showers was cold late in the evening one night but then very hot in the mornings. The grass was 6 inches tall and needed to be mowed. Having two dump stations was a big plus when people lined up to get out on Sunday. Great fire pits and picnic table at each camping spot. We will come back here someday. - Candbs

Viking Lake is located in a 1,000 acre park in SW Iowa and is one of the most popular state parks. VLSP was surrounded by forest, had well maintained grounds, a playground and two modern, clean restroom/shower buildings. Showers are the 'push-button' type with no water temp control, but the hot water temperature and pressure were OK. Cellphone reception wasn't the best; may depend upon your provider. There is a 5.5 mile multi-use trail around the lake and a 1-mile Burr Oak Nature Trail. There's a sandy beach (unsupervised) located on the west shore, 4 boat ramps, 6 fishing jetties and Deb’s Lake View restaurant which was (seasonally) open for breakfast, lunch and dinner but serves no alcohol. The same building also housed a boat concession selling bait, ice, firewood, fishing gear, rents motor boats, paddle boats and pontoons. The roadways are paved but the sites are gravel. The newer 'upper' campground area appeared to have the most level level sites; some with views of the lower campground below by the water. The lower 'lakeside' campground sites near the lake were closer together, more crowded and mostly occupied full-time. The lesser crowded 'West' campground near the tent area had more room between sites. The campground has nonelectric, electric, full hook-up, and buddy campsites and two dump stations. Our electric-only site cost $16. Note - pick your site cautiously; we discovered our advance-reserve site (#25) was the most un-level we've ever come across. We had our front auto-levelers maxed out with 4 boards underneath plus about a foot of boards under our front tires and were barely level. Saw many other motorhomes and 5th-wheelers with what looked like a small forest of lumber under their rigs too. - OTR-again

Beautiful little Cass county park near Lewis IA. Large oak and hickory trees, lovely in the fall. There were no other campers in the park. Quiet, flush toilets, restrooms/showers OK (concrete floors). $12 for electric only hookup. Can't reserve a site but doubt you would need to although I expect it is busy during the summer, has a swim beach and fishing. - katinfoco
