  • A tight fit for our 33ft 5th Wheel (site 21). But, we made it. Nice park. Well kept. Might need another bathroom. The one gets pretty busy.
  • Some state parks are more about offering recreation than preserving the outdoors for exploration. This is one of the former. If you are stuck in Iowa and want to boat, paddle or swim on a sandy beach, this is a good spot. The park offers short, but limited hiking opportunities. There is camping. The primitive area costs only $6, which makes it a great spot to camp on a cross-country road trip. If you like disc golf or mountain biking nearby Sugarbush offers both.
  • Whatever floats your boat and this place floats my boat. A great little getaway close to home. It is where I go to relax when I'm not working. You can fish, swim or just do nothing at all which is my favorite pastime.
  • The Raptor Center is small but a fun stop for younger children. Took a couple of different trails. Looking forward to exploring more. Beautiful option for people looking to go on a quick local hike.
  • Come here quite often. Fun place to go hiking and spend time on a sandbar. I've only had one run in with a park ranger, who chose to try to pull me over, while I was riding a bicycle. She choose to do so by nearly hitting me rather than rolling down her window and asking me to pull over.
