We camped here with our vintage Airstream for a rally with 13 other Airstreams. The roads into the park are plenty wide and directions were good. The campground had adequate spacing between sites, not generous, but sufficient. The sites were mostly gravel and grass. Leveling was good, just a little adjustment but nothing drastic. Nice paved roads for walking down to the lake that had a couple docks for boats and a fish cleaning station. The sites were shady and kept clean, in fact the whole campground was very clean and well maintained. The shower house was very clean and in some state parks keeping them clean doesn't seem to be a priority but they kept these shower/toilets clean and maintained. Water pressure was good, though you do have to push the button every couple minutes, but no big deal. We stayed here four nights and would stay again. The park is in the southwest corner of Iowa, not far from Missouri. We visited the surrounding towns which had special activites the weekend we were there. Clarinda had a 1940's festival with Big Band music; great steak house there. We camped at Lake of Three Fires State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very clean big state park. Water is available in each section but not at the site. The water was on when we stayed. The sites are gravel and mostly level. Our site had 50amp but not sure if all do. We were the only campers there for 2 days and it is a big park. We could not get our WiFi to work and there were only 4 PBS channels on the antenna. The Verizon phones worked well. A very nice park and would stay again even though TV and internet wasn't available. We camped at Lake of Three Fires State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great little State Park. Swimming beach. Disc golf. Hiking. Restrooms newer and clean. The non-electric sites, with a few exceptions, are very much "tent only" though save maybe for a fold up tent camper. We camped at Lake of Three Fires State Park in a Motorhome.

Newly rebuilt shower house. Kept very clean. There was a small swim-at-your-own-risk beach. Part of the campgrounds are primitive while the other part is electric hookup. There is also a special loop just for equestrian campers. Very nice and beautiful park. We camped at Lake of Three Fires State Park in a Travel Trailer.
