  • Large state park with two lakes. A small one with a beach and a second 545 acre fishing lake. Neat beach house built by CCC in 1934. Campground just a mile or so from quaint town on the Des Moines...

  • This is a spectacular state park. We were here on Monday and Tuesday nights, but it was nice a quiet. Camphosts were awesome also!
  • Lovely campground beautiful setting! Great camp hosts! Awesome trails id say one of iowas top 5 parks
  • Excellent wildlife! Very nice cabins that could use a couple of touchups. We rented the cabins here for a family reunion. The futons were uncomfortable, but the rest of each cabin was nicely furnished with good tasting tap water, a fire pit, a picnic table, great water pressure in the showers, etc. The AC units smelled like mildew, so we forewent ours in favor of the ceiling fans and windows, which was warm in August but OK with cool clothing and a sheet. The park has beautiful trails dotted with historical CCC projects and plaques. However, deer ticks about the size of coffee grounds are plentiful and made it through my long socks. Be careful of going through grass no-matter how sparse and be sure to check your legs for new "freckles".
  • I live in Indiana! Northern Indiana and it's very flat there... This place is amazing!!! Absolutely beautiful ❤️ the stars have to be my most favorite part of the experience! The local wildlife manly the raccoons have been a joy to live with this past week!! My nephews enjoy staying up late and protecting the camp! I appreciate the park staff for all their knowledge!!! One of the best camping trips we have had!! Thank you from my family to yours!!
  • We were very pleased at the condition of the park. The park was mowed, and ready for visitors. We walked the trail that went around the lake. It was well maintained and marked. We met a ranger on the trail, Patrick. He told us about the Villages Orb Project. So, we slowed down our pace to see if we can find an orb. We didn't find one, but we are planning to come back in the fall so we can enjoy the beauty of the park and to see if we can find an orb.
