Stayed one night so we could take the Winnebago factory tour the next day. Site was long enough for our RV and towed vehicle. Lots of permanent sites and a few overnight spots close the office. No cable, but able to get plenty of channels on TV. Wi-if was very poor, unable to get service at all, ended up using our cellular data. Great place for one night, wouldn't be a lot to do for longer. We were late getting in, but our paperwork was at the site. Only full hook up park near the Winnebago factory We camped at 3 Fingers Campground in a Motorhome.

Interesting park a few miles outside Forest City. If visiting the Winnebago facility this seems to be the best option for FHU. Good WIFI, level sites. Nice lakes and ponds on and adjacent to property. Seems to be many permanent set ups . Forget about ATT cell service anywhere around these parts. Very helpful and friendly office staff. Clean and apparently well managed park with some nice recreational aspects. We camped at 3 Fingers Campground in a Motorhome.

Best option for visiting Winnebago Industries if you want FHU. Lots of twists and turns navigating around Forest City and to and from this RV park. 2 nice grocery stores in town.

Very impressive park on three small lakes, easy to find about 20 minutes west of I-35. Lots of friendly long-term residents (and my hat is off to them for making their individual spaces look landscaped and very nicely kept up with) and a few spaces for transient/weekend visitors. Wonderful, long, level concrete pads with plenty of space both in the front and back of the pad for vehicles. 30 and 50 amp service, water, and sewer connections. The restroom/shower facilities are clean and functional. Don't count on using the WiFi from your site unless you're right next to the office building (we were probably 200' away from the office and could not even see the wireless network). No store on the premises, but Forest City is only 3 miles away with just about anything you would need. The owners schedule weekend activities for residents and visitors. During our weekend it was 'Christmas in August' with caroling, Santa, and holiday decorations on some units.

If it wasn't for the lack of WiFi connectivity at the site, I would have given Three Fingers Campground a 10. Maybe that's something the owner's can look at for upgrading down the road, but for now my wife and I had a fun, relaxing weekend there. Highly recommended. We camped at 3 Fingers Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a really nice large RV park. It has interior gravel roads, long, level pull-through sites. The back in looked good too. The bathrooms are old, but they were putting a new roof on the building while we were there. This is a very popular campground. WiFi was weaak and slow, but they had a hotspot on the patio in the back of the office. The office personal was really great to work with. The only down side is the water has a slight odor. But with everything, it was not a big deal. We camped at 3 Fingers Campground in a Motorhome.

A jewel out in the Iowa corn fields. This is mostly a seasonal park with about 7 sites for daily or monthly. Everything about this park is outstanding starting with great owners, long pull thru gravel site with level concrete pad for our 45 ft. coach, good strong 50 amp hookup even running 2 airs, grass between sites with picnic table on a patio and no trains or road noise. Only negative is no laundry facility but there is one in town 4 miles away. Would definitely recommend this park and will be back when in the area. We camped at 3 Fingers Campground in a Motorhome.

Borderline Pizza on Hwy 69 just north of town has awesome pizza and also has great nachos supreme. Not fancy outside or inside but great food at very reasonable prices.

Nice looking park with swimming/fishing lake and well maintained grounds. Nice clean aluminum picnic tables at every space. We didn't use bathroom facilities. Wifi is what wifi usually is in RV parks (not great), depends on where you are. The very best part of this park is that it has nice level cement pads, spaces are extra long with a very large grass covered yard between every space. We have been on the road for four months and have stayed in several parks, this is the best so far, it is easy to get in and out of and you won't need any leveling blocks. We camped at 3 Fingers Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We are self contained so didn't use facilities. Good WIFI as we were in a pull through near the office. Site is comfortable, no trees but nice open view of farm fields and great, long walking area for dogs. Mostly seasonal campers but park is quiet and very well maintained by on-site owners. We brought our 42' Tour for factory service but preferred this park to staying at the factory hook ups. A few short miles to town. Nice outside sitting area with new picnic tables and fire rings. We camped at 3 Fingers Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed here so we could go see the Winnebago Factory. This is an unusual campground. All of the sites on the "fingers" are for long term/seasonal stays. Mostly 5th wheels. The people seemed friendly, sites were clean. The sites for overnighters are pull through with full hook-ups. No shade. Used the showers which really need updating. The "doors" for the toilets and showers were old, thin, stained pieces of sheets. Walls badly in need of a paint job. Toilets and shower stalls themselves seemed clean overall, but the building itself was really in need of a makeover. WiFi very weak, very frustrating; although, the park says WiFi available on deck outside office. But who wants to have to walk down to the office every time you want to use the internet? There is a lovely deck behind the office overlooking the water with paddle boats and kayaks. We camped at 3 Fingers Campground in a Motorhome.

I would not recommend this place. Managers are very rude and changed our reserved spot to a different one without letting us know. The bathrooms were horrible. No doors on the stalls, just a shower curtain. The showers had mold on the walls. We told the manager how unhappy we were and were told to leave right now. Said that were a bunch of freeloaders, and that we smelled like an outhouse. Will never go to this place again. We camped at 3 Fingers Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Okay for an overnight. Utilities on the right. Looks like a local campsite but clean and friendly. Lots of kids. No Wi-Fi. Might investigate staying at Winnebago factory, they have several limited utility sites probably for a lot less. We camped at 3 Fingers Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park and the owners are working hard on improvements. We stayed here for two days while we were having some work done on our motorhome. While there is no pool, we did see children swimming in the lake so we assume that is permissible. Also they have canoe and paddle boats available. The owner even came out and gave our vehicle a battery boost when we arrived dead in the water and they were very accommodating during our stay. The only negative factor to us is the fact that they allow children to drive electric carts throughout the campground. We just don't feel this is safe and you had to be on the lookout for them. Definitely recommend this park to other RVers. We camped at 3 Fingers Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here while having some work done at Winnebago. The owners were very nice and worked constantly improving the campground. We had to stay at a motel for three nights due to repairs on our coach and the owners were understanding and looked after our items that had to be removed from our storage bins. If you are in the area I would recommend you stay here. We will definitely stay again when we are in the area. We camped at 3 Fingers Campground in a Motorhome.

We were visiting the Winnebago factory and to have warranty work done. One of the owners operated the front office and was very friendly. Our site was long so easily accommodated our motorhome and tow. The park surrounds a man made lake so the setting is pretty. Unfortunately, the lake-front spots were all taken by seasonal folks. Our spot had the lake behind it. We would stay here again. We camped at 3 Fingers Campground in a Motorhome.
