10 Parks near Little Sioux, Iowa
Jun 2013 - $0.00
This campground is no longer accepting off the road campers, nor is it honoring Passport America. The manager did, however, recommend a campground down the road. - bones1941

Gated and nice, but rather tough to pull out due to large trees. We paid $12.50 for a Passport America Rate. Would definitely stay here again. It is a full-timer park but very nice people and owners are very nice. - tbg

Most people who stay here own the space they are in so there are a lot of personal items around each rig. The manager was really nice and led us to our spot in her golf cart. They were very accommodating about accepting mail or FedEx which helps when you are on the road. We did not have sewer but they do have a dump site which we did not use. We would stay here again and recommend this to others as it was quiet. We had a bit of trouble finding it due to the road construction but that won't happen forever. - rolling homeless

This is a small recreation area that doesn't take reservations. The sites are well-spaced and level. Some sites are on the lake. The lake is for fishing, canoeing, swimming, etc. All boats are allowed, but there is a 5 m.p.h. speed limit. There is also a fish cleaning station for those who fish. Thirty of the campsites have electricity, the rest are for dry camping/tenting. It is a very quiet, peaceful setting, but if you are coming for the weekend, get there early as spots fill up quickly. Our Verizon MiFi worked very well, but AT&T phones did not work at all. - Bobbi1948

Overnight stay. Easy to find. Check-in was easy. Owners (husband and wife) very friendly. Escorted to site. Solid gravel road, well maintained. Lots of shade trees throughout park. Partial shade, pull-thru gravel, level site with grassy sides and ample room on both sides. Able to get satellite. Utilities easy to connect. Good water pressure. Open field in rear of park to walk pets. Bathrooms looked clean (did not use). Easy to maneuver 43' motorhome w/tow. - RTM

Easy in out from the interstate but very little noise. Beautiful majestic trees line the lanes and provide a lot of shade but if you need open sky for satellite, they have sites like that too. Many pull thrus with few back ins on one side. We were escorted to our site and the owner lined us up perfectly straight with the perfect amount of distance to the pedestal. Water pressure was strong. Owners are the best - helpful, low key and hospitable. They helped us with a fridge problem. After a bad storm with strong winds, they were out early in the morning cleaning up the debris and tree branches on the sites. Nice big dog park. Sites are hard packed gravel with grass in between. There's pride of ownership in this park. We would gladly stay here again. - Flippitti

Very spacious park with lots of shade and large sites. Wonderful owners who are RVers. Utilities are fine. Wifi o.k. May over-the-air TV channels. - padre

Nice and new! Quiet. The green-grass campsites are very wide; another trailer could fit between each site. Built in 2012, the campgrounds on the northwest corner of the fairgrounds is not yet on Google maps. But you can see it from Google Earth - just use the address 105 15th Street North. Trees have been planted, but none are large enough to cast shade or privacy yet. Picnic tables can be requested. Fire rings are also available on request. There is no on-site campground host, so calling ahead would be a good idea. The campground is flat, the gravel road is flat, and the gravel campsites are flat. Being new the gravel depth is more shallow than old campgrounds, but is very well maintained. Each back-in site is oriented west-east and is long enough for a big motor home with a towed vehicle. The sites on the west side of the main road have a small curb on the west end, and could be used for pull-throughs for some trailers. All sites have electricity for anyone staying - 50 amp and 30 amp and 20 amp. Water to fill your tanks is available only at the south east corner and a hose there may not be available. Bathroom without showers is available on the fairgrounds, not in the campground - AKA "quite a hike". No dump station at all. Outside of town there are 3 options -- 1) Lewis & Clark State Park. 2) KOA. 3) on Interstate I-29 and just SOUTH of Onawa at the rest stops (both North and south bound). Children and dogs are welcome, but there are not play areas for them. Nearby attractions include Lewis & Clark's keelboat Museum and replica boat on lake. Within a short drive are the Loess Hills made from centuries of windblown dirt. North is Sergeant Floyd Monument (only person to die on Lewis & Clark expedition) and Sioux City's famous Palmer Candy Company. One thing to note, the campground supervisor has another job preparing taxes. So if you need help in April, be persistent and have patience. We will return. - AluminumCloud

Nice journey Campground on a lake. - GFoxH

Rate reflected was by using KOA points. This is very nice park, in a beautiful setting, right on the lake.
Three things are needed here, and they are, by no means, the park's fault.
1. Water pressure regulator for very high water pressure.
2. A very good water filter. The water is orange, and even double filtering for us did not work.
3. Bug spray. TONS of mosquitoes. Hubby got eaten alive, and I was killing them in the RV, even with peppermint oil on all the screens.
We arrived a day early, and the very sweet hostess was kind enough to accommodate us.
We had a HUGE pull through, by an alfalfa field, that allowed us to get rooftop satellite. The park was easily maneuverable with our 35' fifth wheel, and long bed dually.
A negative of this park is, the county road out front has pretty heavy traffic at times, and vehicles drive very fast on it. It didn't bother us much, as we were in a spot away from the road.
They have a pool, a .50 cent a game pool table, and horseshoes, none of which we used.
We would definitely return! - Mr&MrsFulltimers

We were here for a week and it was nice and peaceful. The sites are gravel with some grass. The rain does create large pools of water that turns to mud, however fortunately it dried out quickly. The one way system doesn't quite work in this park. We were in a pull through where there was only one way to exit, yet people were constantly driving the opposite way through open campsites the wrong way to exit the park. When all the sites were full people did u-turns to get back out. The laundry facilities were adequate. - Tony Connie and Rusty

LCSP is located on 250-acre Blue Lake, called an 'oxbow' because it was formed by the meanderings of the Missouri River years ago. This Iowa DNR (Department of Natural Resources) campground has level, paved roads, lots of lawn space and was well maintained. The campground felt safe and secure with full-time camp hosts as well as DNR rangers present. The RV sites were all level gravel with a fire ring and picnic table. Large cottonwood trees shade most of the campsites. There is an older but modern, well-ventilated rest room/shower house that plays weatherband radio broadcasts 24 hours a day. No WiFi. Good antenna TV reception from both Omaha & Sioux City. Several hydrants are located around the park for drinking water and there are two dump stations.
There are 100 electric only back-in sites and 12 full hookup, pull-thru sites. Over 50 of the sites backup directly onto the lakeshore. Half of the campsites are available on a first-come, first-serve walk-up basis. Advance campsite reservations can be booked through the Iowa State Parks Reserve American campground website. With the fees for camping in Iowa's state parks being so reasonable, it gets full quickly on weekends and holidays, so get there or book early.
LCSP also has a beach, a dock with double boat ramps, more than 30 acres of picnic grounds, hiking trails and a playground. . - OTR-again

We arrived without a reservation. Directions unclear on how to sign in but host was helpful once we found her. Signs confusing and had hard time figuring out if a site was occupied. Beautiful sites along the lake. Not sure why previous reviewer had leveling issues - many sites flat and easy to access. Utilities were fine. Pretty walk along the lake. Nice kids area. Lots of sites labelled as occupied are, in fact, available. - rudyhehn

Beautiful park with trees. Good spacing between sites. Nice lake views. Close to interstate but no road noise. Looks like it could be rowdy for the weekends. People check out whenever they want, ignoring checkout time. Fire rings full of garbage and left over food. - southernsky

This is a small park in a front yard. Full hookup 50 amp, but no amenities. The owners were very nice and were helpful, but the park is overpriced for what you get. Site was flat, we were able to get satellite and Verizon was good. We would not stay here again due to the price. - Deniselg53

Nice small rv park across from the De Soto National Wildlife Refuge. Level sites, friendly people. All sites are back in. They have 5 or 6 really nice shady spots. Nice place for extended stays. - workcamper14

This park is easy access for all sizes of RVs. Can get close enough to water, depending on site. Public pool and little train museum. It is close to major rail line. Trains honking most of the night. - amdriven2liv
Aug 2015 - $15.00
Nice size spaces. Lots of grassy area. The only criticism is the railroad tracks. The train runs very often and the engineer blows his horn through that area. - BPowell

A very nice city park with large sites and plenty of grass. We love finding the small city parks and most turn out to be hidden gems. The only negative is the train tracks next to the park. We will definitely stay here again. There are 3 water hookups near the sites to share. There is also a dump station on site. - Army Guy

This is a great city park with lots of grass and room to enjoy yourself. The only negative is the train tracks adjacent to the park. The tracks carry a lot of traffic, but you get used to it. There is a lot less traffic overnight. We will definitely stay here again. - Bobbi1948

Not much to do in the park. If you're looking for a one nighter or a base of operations, it's okay. Firewood is available but wet and rotten. Last night's first log still sits in the fire ring charred from the charcoal lighter we used to try and get it lit. River is dirty with lots of stuff floating in the water. Standing water everywhere so mosquitoes are truly a nightmare! 8pm and it was like a horror movie as the swarm descended. Can't sit outside even when covered in DEET and a smoldering fire going. I think they take it as a challenge.
Even after saying hello, we were ignored by the hosts.
The pads are level and electricity is close. Only a little shade from storm damaged trees. Grass is certainly still recovering from flooding. It's a somewhat pretty park from the inside of your RV, with spacious sites, but don't expect much for family or other outdoor activities. - SM1969

Typical state park but restored from flood. Electric only and was first rate. We were the only camper in the first loop. Quiet except for a low background noise from a quarry. Pit toilet. Worth the price for an overnight or even a couple of nights. - gumper

This campground is located close to the Missouri River and to DeSoto Bend Wildlife Refuge. The Bertrand Museum (sunken paddleboat sternwheeler) is at the nearby Visitors Center. Campsites are spacious in a park with many tall cottonwood trees. Campground host was a volunteer and was very friendly and helpful. The Council Bluffs area is 20-25 miles away. - gbburgess
