An out of the way park, signage to it not very good, but otherwise a pleasant surprise. Hiking trails have a view of the Horicon Marsh which is a must place to go to. Only down side is the 20 amp sites. Would stop here again without a doubt.

Date of Stay:

The park setup gave a fair amount of privacy, especially if the campground is half full. We had little difficulty maneuvering although others may. In season probably requires reservations. We were disappointed that the tower was closed already. A good park to bike in and not far from the shops and museums in Sturgeon Bay.

Date of Stay:

Plenty of hiking trails and several ways to get down to the beach on Green Bay. We got the bikes down and headed down the paved trail to find it joins with paved county roads. Great place to visit Green Bay from and not far from the Shrine of Good Help which is a truly spiritual experience. Contrary to previous posters had no problem with 30 ft RV with a tow vehicle and big turning radius.

Date of Stay:

If we are in the area, we will come back to this Brushy Creek to investigate it. It was a stopping place for us this time. Good big sites, some paved some gravel. It was nice because of the limited lighting allowing you to see the stars.

If you come through the main drag of Correctionville, you will need to do a 1/2 block jog. This is a correction in the survey lines and 3 townships meet at this corner. Playground equipment is located near the campground. Four camping cabins are available for rent as well. Approximately 50 non-electrical campsites are located on the west side of the lake with access to modern restrooms and showers. The Union Bridge Trail connects the park to the town of Correctionville with a ten foot wide concrete path that winds through scenic areas and crossing the Little Sioux River with a spectacular bridge. The 10-acre lake has angling opportunities for large-mouth bass, bluegill and channel catfish. Only electric trolling motors, oars and paddles are allowed on all county owned lakes. There is a designated swimming beach area. Hiking trails offer opportunities to explore the marsh, native trees, shrub plantings, native prairies and food plots.

Date of Stay:

County owned and electricity is being updated. We expected to see hiking trails, etc, but none present. There is swimming for kids and a pretty busy boat dock. It would appear that a majority of the campers are seasonal. We used it as a base camp, but will find another campground in the future. We also expected it tough to find a site because of the closure of Minnesota parks but we were the only transient campers.

Date of Stay:

Deserves higher rating, except for the management of the campground. This is a first come first served, no reservations campground. There are many signs around saying the sites must be occupied. Unfortunately we backed into a site that someone thought he could put a tag on the post and not occupy it. After setting up, and then registering we found his tag, that he had put in there in the morning and did not occupy it.

Date of Stay:

Plenty of room to hike and bike. Be careful on the upper camping area, the turns on the west side on very tight. Cutbacks have affected Iowa campgrounds as some of the picnic areas are not being mowed, just paths to and around them.

Date of Stay:

Brand spanking new. Will only get better as the trees grow. Near Grundy Lake and bike trails. If you have time go south and stop at the Grundy County Museum in Morrison. Travel a bit further south to Gladbrook and stop at the Matchbook Museum. It is absolutely awesome and if you are there over the weekend see a $3.00 movie in their new theater.

Date of Stay:

Almost a new campground. When the trees grow and give shade it will be an easy 10. Nice, quiet location with a nice bike path nearby.

Date of Stay:

Small state park, limited number of large sites. We are in a 30 rig, and only a few sites were adequate. Mostly shady, watch for the trees.

Date of Stay:

A real jewel. The scenic byways roads needs to be taken, be careful you don't meet any farm machinery on them. Super hiking place and very big campsites.

Date of Stay:

Campsites are not especially long, and the main attraction here would be just a bit of hiking and fishing, and being alone.

Date of Stay:

The state park should meet the needs of the hiker, biker, the fisherman, the history buff and even those who wish to be laid back. Great place to be, and good place to use as a base to investigate Bismarck and Mandan. Get up earlier and watch the sun come up over the river.

Date of Stay:

The WiFi did not work for us. It is a nice clean campground and has easy access to Spearfish Canyon, a don't miss drive to and hiking place. Nearby is a fish hatchery with some monster trout, but most of it closes down after Labor Day. Our GPS directions were not real good to arrive here.
