We stayed here before about 6 years ago. Everything is the same. It's a nice, little campground with good facilities. The mother-daughter owners keep it looking cared for. We suffered from many mosquitoes, so couldn't stay outside the rig like we wanted. Anytime we need a campground in the area of Marshalltown, IA, this is the one we will use. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Take the two previous reviews and moderate both and you have a fair review of this campground. Yes it is family run by a Mother/Daughter combo that sometimes appear somewhat eccentric. Yes, rules posted and printed are somewhat harsh and intimidating, but rarely monitored or enforced. My dog (Hank) and I were in residence here for two months, and have thoroughly enjoyed it. The campground provided what we needed!!! Clean, well maintained, level sites. We are self contained and need not the showers/washrooms. Certainly not a lot of amenities: privacy and location were our requirements. I will be coming back and will stay here again. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Campground in a Motorhome.

We loved this park. It was very small and very well maintained. Aside from amenities at the site (50amp full hook ups) there really isn't anything else here, though. But it's a good stop over for a visit to the Giant Tree House. The tour was FABULOUS and great for kids BTW, and we highly recommend it for adults too. It was very quiet and peaceful setting. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Campground in a Motorhome.

STOP! Before you book with this crazy person! Do yourself a favor and keep looking! While this campground has full hook-ups, bulk dumping is not allowed...oh and if you have a dog, you will only be able to have it outside if you are out with it and on a leash. If you like to enjoy a campfire at your site, good luck! You can't! There are however 3 community fire pits that you may enjoy. If you would like to have an adult beverage with that community campfire, you may NOT! The list goes on here. They do not share rules until you are there. These folks have a limited memory of what they say over the phone and what they say when you get there. That is if you live through the tackling session upon arrival. You are barely off the road before they tackle you for your money. If you should decide to take a chance on this place, be sure you bring your clear garbage bags so she can see what you are throwing away. If you should decide to tent camp, you will need to consider another option for using the bathroom or shower while she is gone running errands she takes the key with her. Paid for the entire labor day weekend. We set out after one night and found another campground. Had a great rest of the weekend! We camped at Shady Oaks RV Campground in a Motorhome.
