8/13-15/2018 It’s a nice & shady campground about 16 miles from the IA State Fair. I would have given it a 5 Star rating except there are no city water hookups, just water available to fill your water tanks.

Great place for kids or just to relax. Lots of room between sites with very clean bathrooms.

Nice campground. Very large sites, plenty of room to stretch out. Sites are level and shady. Nice playground for kids. Very strict on the three o'clock check out.

There is a paved bike trail accessed directly from this Corps of Engineer park that takes a beautiful winding route into Des Moines, IA.
As I recall, the trail is 24 miles long. Although not a rail trail, this one is much more scenic with many curves and plenty of shade.
Typical of most Corps parks, this one has widely spaced paved parking pads, and good electric and water hookups. Best season is early Fall. Arrive mid-week and you will have your choice of many available sites.
