3 Parks near Creston, Iowa
Apr 2009 - $20.00
Construction in progress. Long site but the swing room to get into a site was very limited. It will take some planning with a long rig with a toad. I would not drive out of our way to get here, but we were going right by. Directions to park are very limited. Self register, but owner is on site looking out the window. - run2

A nice little park no listed in any travel guide I could find. I happened on the park by an old Google hit from Woodall's (it is no longer listed in Woodall's.) This park is just fine for an overnight stay in an area where RV parks are few and far between. The park seems to be in the owners' front yard, but there is plenty of room for big rigs with tows. The power was "clean" and good water pressure (city water) and there were two sewer hookups at each site (front and rear.) The park is just a couple of blocks south of Hwy 34 on the west side of Creston. We would definitely stay here again for a day or two. - OpaRon

Green Valley is a 1060-acre park with a 390 acre lake. The campground is in a quiet, rural location near the lake. There were a lot of shade trees and good views of the lake from most RV sites. The roads are paved with gravel RV sites. Our site was fairly level with an excellent view of the lake. Some sites are rather close to each other. There are 18 full hook-up RV sites, 65 electric-only and several tent campsites. There are several buddy sites and even a quad-buddy site where 4 campers can form their own courtyard. There were also 3 rustic, log cabins, each with a boat dock you can rent. All sites had picnic tables and fire rings.
There are two modern restroom/shower buildings, a playground and a dump station. Water faucets were scattered throughout the park. Half the campsites are walkup - first come/first serve while the other half and the 3 cabins can be reserved online. The lake had several boat ramps, numerous docks and fishing piers. There's a 10 mile trail that circles the lake. The DNR is in the process of laying cement bike paths around several portions of the lake. - OTR-again

We had just one night at this state park. Knowing we were just passing through, I opted for a pull through site, hoping that I could remain hooked up to the camper. However, the front of our site fell off quite a bit and I could have never gotten level front to back without unhooking. Also, we were pretty close to our neighbors on either side - more like a commercial park than a state park. Still, overall it's a nice spot. Lots of trees and a nice lake. I'd go back if it fit our travel plans. - nazpaz

Nice park with long, level sites but sewer is uphill from RV. We solved that problem by using the dump station on the way out. We also lucked out because the Park Ranger told us of the balloon festival in town this weekend. Had a great time there. It's an annual event so if you're in the area next year this around the second week in September, make sure you visit. Creston is a typical midwestern town with friendly people and little traffic. Did some geocaching. We would stay here again if in the area, for sure, but would pick a different lot. Oh, they also have "buddy lots" where 4 campers form a square around a central area. Really neat and sort of private for a small group. - PennyPA

We stayed 4 nights. Great park, gravel and cement pads. We loved the park, quiet and beautiful surroundings, wild life and trees. It is clean, the hosts were very friendly and helpful. - gooneybird

Loved this park, we stayed in full sun for our sat dish and all utilities worked great. Very quiet and peaceful. Close to the town of Wintersett and all the covered bridges. - michelle 17

Arriving at the park's main North entrance, we pulled through the rock tunnel with ease. NOTE 12-1/2' height limit here, taller RVs should use the 4 mile gravel road entrance on the park's East side.
We met up with a friend of ours, and stayed in the shady back-in spots. Another friend opted to stay in the wide open full-sun campground loop that has pull-through concrete pads and good satellite reception. All the campground roads are gravel. Our almost-level gravel site was well spaced with a picnic table. The 30 amp electricity was nice for running our air conditioner. The water spigots are located between sites and have a "Y" for both trailers to use at the same time. We did have afternoon sun on our patio side, while sites across the road had morning sun on their doors. A storm the day before left the sites covered with small branches, which we used as kindling for our campfire.
The park's ford was washed out from the rain, so we did not wade or play in the water. The other roads were open for walking.
Verizon MiFi worked some times during the day - OK by me.
We will return. - AluminumCloud
