  • Nice campground. Very noisy neighbors across from us. Rarely saw host. Not sure if we'll be back,campers across from us ruined it. Kids running through our site. No parental control.
  • Paths are washed away lots of weeds need to be cut down. Definitely has changed in four years. Would like to see an improvement.
  • Beautiful state park with trails for hiking, biking, and riding horses, topped by the magnificent old stone tower on the "knob" that overlooks the serene countryside. I'd love to play my bagpipes there some day!
  • Had a good day at the park
  • Nice little State Park in the middle of nowhere Iowa good for day trips, Sledding, snowshoeing, hiking, and picnics
