We love this place. Came for 3 days stayed for 6. At $18 a day for this place is bargain-Forfeited our fees ($85 for 3 days at place just south of here) with No Shade. Self checkin, but has camp host on site. Most sites you are able to reserve. Some are day by day first come sites. I set mine up by phone with the Iowa DNR - Fantastic customer service.
Look at the pictures here lots of shade, well spaced sites, great shower house. 30 Amp back in sites and some 50Amp pull thrus. There is a fantastic horse camping area, pole stalls, tie out rails with feed bag cable. Great shade there too.
Fantastic day use shelters. A great closed venue area with outdoor shelter close to the sand beach.
Lake is no-wake but great for fishing and kayaking. Well worth short drive the 30 miles north of Maryville. We will be back this way and stay again.

Very relaxing park. Nice spacing between sites. People we're very friendly, park staff very helpful. There are toilets and showers. Bathroom facilities were not very clean. Kayaking and hiking and fishing we're all good. We are headed back there next week.
