This Iowa State Park is destined for future greatness. There are limited pull throuh spaces, but the ones they have are great, asphalt pads. Roads are asphalt. The water, sewer, and electricity are great. The beach was closed for a major over-haul, new picnic tables, parking, and shelters. There is a very good lake for fishing. The campground is quite and relaxing and has a small playground for the children. No cable TV and no wifi. No cell phone service availble. The trees are young and when full grown will make the campground mostly shady. I would stay again. We camped at Brushy Creek State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Went here with 3 kids and really enjoyed it. There are three different campgrounds: Beach, South Equestrian, and North Equestrian. There weren't that many people there (stayed on a Thursday night in June 2015) but nearly all the full hook-up sites were taken. Imagine this big beautiful campground with most spots empty with 1 row of RVs back to back. We decided on having space instead of a full hook-up. Went and looked at all three campgrounds before deciding where we'd stay. Chose North Equestrian Campground, stayed in spot #52. I was a little concerned because I didn't want to be too close to any horses, but all the horses were on the periphery and actually added a nice feel to the campground. Site had some shade, was level. Had s'mores in the fire pit. Lovely one night stay. FYI, the first part of the South Equestrian Campground was really gorgeous, very wooded, all in the shade, if you like that kind of thing. We camped at Brushy Creek State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Brushy Creek State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.
