Best Little State Park
We love this park. Nice grass, fairly level cement pad and patio, paved roads, full 50amp hookups. Satellite will be tough with all the trees and you need your own wifi. Space between sites is awesome. Tucked in the trees yet easy to back into. We are a 45ft 5th wheel now with a 21ft truck. We fill the site with maybe 2ft to spare. We are in site 3.

Nice Park
Large concrete sites & paved roads. Our 40 ft RV fit with the car parked in front. Quiet and close to Des Moines sites.

This is a great RV park, super close to everything. Sites are cement pads, level and clean and roads are paved. The grass is mowed to keep the bugs down as much as can be expected, it is a woods. Sites are also large so you are not packed in with your neighbors. Would love to bring the kayaks next time and use the river right behind the park. Max length is much more than 21 ft. Our rig is 37ft and there was still plenty of room. I beleive you could easily fit a 45 ft rig in some of these sites.

Great Place
Small, clean & quiet campground. Approx. 20 sites, half with full hook-up about 5 miles off highway 80. Can't beat the price for full hook-up.
