16 RV Parks near Neola, Iowa
Mar 2016 - $15.00
This is a beautiful county park located right off of the interstate (I-80). We were surprised to find out that it was open this early in the season. Because it was early we were the only campers, our site was a pull-through with electricity. Water and a dump were available. The staff was very friendly.
Thanks to the county for this beautiful park. - mountainfan

One of the best value camp grounds I have stayed at. Nice location on lake with playground just over bridge, good semi private campsites, electricity, water spigot, free dump site on way out & wifi all for $15.00!! - VPP

Stayed in first campground towards entrance site #4. Has been a wet spring and summer and every spot has its own wet muddy spot to drive through to get parked. Need more rock in sites. Rained last night and all storm water runs down road and thru site pads. Basically some road maintenance needed to address issues.
Drove thru back campground and nearly all site are back straight in short sites so not really for larger campers.
Worked good for overnite stay. - mudmaker

We should have visited RV Park Reviews website before stopping at this particular RV park in Shelby, IA. We were charged a top of the range rate for a site in a muddy open field. No cable, no Wi-Fi, no sewer, amenities one would expect for this price in a small town in Iowa. - Bart1979

Easy access from the freeway but the signs directing RV registration were confusing. WiFi did not work except next to the office at the inn. The restrooms and showers were in need of basic servicing. Very tight spaces but the park was nearly empty so spacing was fine. The sites were level but the key to turn on the water had to be turned with pliers because the valve was so tight. The sewer and water connections were very close together which is never a good idea. - Old Geezer

Easy to get to campground. I would use for overnight stay only. Located close to interstate. Highway noise is present but not bothersome for us. The site was level and had all the necessary hook-ups. There is a water key required to access your site spigot. You receive this at check-in. Not a problem for us. Facilities were clean but worn and in need of serious updating. We used them as quickly as we could and got out. Lots of bugs. The campground has no pool or activities for kids but we were not interested anyway. If I were in the area I would stay for overnight last resort purposes only. Truthfully, I would rather not stay again and would keep driving in search of something a little better. - mm1407

Very nice park, nice friendly staff. Showers could be better for privacy and no full hook-ups are the only downsides. We would stay again. - Lynn-Donny

Great county park, hiking, nature center, great staff. Only reason to not give it a 10 is not full hookup. - Let's Ride

This is a great little campground near the Omaha (NE) metropolitan area. There are lots of hiking trails in the park and a neat little museum in the visitors center. The sites are roomy with lots of elbow room. The park rangers are very friendly and make sure all campers know about the activities in the Nature Center. They also take the time to visit and answer questions about other attractions in the area. The Nature Center is not far from the interstate, so you have easy access to Omaha and to the casinos in Council Bluffs IA). We will stay here again if we are in the area. - Bobbi1948

This is a very nice and quiet county park. The sites are mainly grass with a few on gravel. There is only two shower facilities and each have one shower. We were here on a week day and there were only two other campers. It is about 7 miles off the interstate and is a nice overnighter. They have a herd of about 20 Elk and a small herd of Bison. We had two young deer playing about 50 feet from our site. I would stay here again if in the area. It is a great place if you have children. - A hitch and hop

We stayed 3 nights while visiting friends in the area. We would highly recommend this park. Nice small play area and a library book box the children loved. Sites were fine. All proceeds go to the local 4-H club. The only downside is the shower house. It was not clean but we have our own shower so this wasn't an issue for us. The town is quaint. Great park and aquatic center nearby. - Shaffer_Shenanigans

This is a great spot for an overnight or even a longer stay, if you're so inclined. Good electricity and water pressure. The fairgrounds are located on the very south end of town, about 2 miles away and easy access to/from I-80. Verizon cell and 4G LTE work well here. Very quiet until about 7 AM when it sounded like the same guy driving all around the neighborhood in his loud truck right up until we left. - freckles1219

Great park to stay in, even with the trains. Actually, it appeared the trains did not run between 11pm and 6am as the train whistles were pretty much non-existent during those hours. Lots going on in this park with the little train you can ride on weekends, the city swimming pool a few steps away, picnic shelters, etc. The campsites, however, could use more shade as almost all sites are in full sun. - Bobbi1948

We found this park right off the interstate gps took us right to it. Electric 30/50 and water. The train woke us up but we went right back to sleep. Great value. - Ms Mellie

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

Camp fee is cash only. 44 sites with electric Water and dump station is available. 6 sites tents only no electric. Showers are adequate but not fancy, see thru shower curtains and no change area. Some trees but not much shade in the camp area. On the east of the camp in a boat launch on the Missouri River and on the left a very nice walking/ bike trail. - traveler 2

Currently closed due to flood damage. - peakcomm
Jul 2007 - $12.00
City owned park with on site hosts. Close to Omaha, so heavy use, especially on weekends. Located near the Missouri river so lots and lots of activity on weekends. Lots of shade trees and some sites that are not so close together as others. Restrooms and showers are older and not well maintained. Generally, an nice place to stay for a few days with weekdays being better than weekends. - marker82

We drove into and around it, then drove out. The park is first come, first serve. This is a very old and very run-down park. We've stayed in marginal parks when necessary, but this one was unacceptable. - User2861

This is the perfect park for our travel needs. No frills, very clean and well kept grounds, long back in sites. 119V steady 50A power, good water pressure, quiet at night. The sewer connection for the site we had was in an awkward, but assessable location. Nice big trees, but the majority of the sites are located so they do not interfere with the satellite signal. We definitely stay here every time we visit family in Omaha. - SuperRep

I don't often post reviews, but this RV park has bad reviews that I just don't understand! Yes, they do not take reservations, yes, it is cash or check only, and yes it is operated by a woman perhaps in her seventies who does not use the internet.. But that woman was pleasant, smiled, chatted with me during the easy check-in, and did not demand to park my rv for me. She did come out and "spot me" to be sure I didn't drive over the sewer opening which is raised a few inches from the ground.. So what??
This is a very nice little campground - the grass is well-watered and well-mowed, the water pressure is 40 which is passable, the 50 amp is solid as a rock, and the long-term residents have decently-clean setups.
Omaha needs a good campground -- it has one - Tomes. - LagunaJim

Our family stayed for 2 nights over Memorial Day weekend. Required to pay for 3 nights. Campsites were spacious and level. The proximity to the river was enjoyable. Campground neighbors were friendly and helpful. Firewood was available and cheap. We were very pleased with our stay and would return.
I noticed signs that said no tents on RV sites. I thought that was weird because we often have a "kids tent" next to our trailer. I noticed a few tents though- so it might not be enforced, but you should probably ask about this if it is an issue for you. - Ladybuggfloyd

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

There isn't much going for this place. I suppose it is somewhat better than a truck stop due to electric/water hookups (and mowed grass), but it would be a close call on spending $28 here or listening to idling trucks at a truck stop all night. (This place was worth at the most 10-12$ a night.) Things got off to a questionable start when I walked into the lobby of the motel to register and almost reeled from the sour, musty smell. This place smelled like a house that has been closed up for ten years. After dialing "0" on the lobby phone to summon a person (the lobby was completely unattended I suppose due to it being lunchtime), things really got interesting when I tried to communicate with the front counter person. His poor command of English made it extremely difficult to communicate. We did manage to complete the registration process but asking a question and expecting to receive an answer I could understand was completely pointless. Finally I heard something that sounded like "go pick out a site", so our registration process was finally and mercifully finished. Driving to the rear of the motel where the 'campground' is located brought us a vista of seemingly randomly scattered water/electric pedestals over a large area of grass with no apparent order. Only a few (maybe six or eight) pull-through sites in the center were obvious in their orientation and most of these were occupied by long-term campers. This was 'free-form' camping at its finest ;-) We drove around and found a place where we didn't have to unhook the toad (we are 40' plus towing a Jeep) and we could easily leave going forward. Leaving gets interesting: When we were ready to leave, I started hunting around for a dumpster or trash can and could not find one. I finally resorted to depositing our bag in the small trash can placed by the lobby door completely filling it up. Oh well... Wanting to dump (at least they had one) meant we had to pass through two large evergreens guarding the exit. We are 8.5' wide, the exit was about 6.5' wide (no kidding!) I had to hold up a tree branch as far as I could while my wife drove through. Even at this, we still couldn't completely clear the trees. The dump was interesting - it is an open 6" pipe coming up an an angle in a concrete slab. At least somebody placed a large broken chunk of asphalt paving over the pipe to keep the neighborhood critters out. The only reason I didn't give this a "1" instead of a "2" was the grass was mowed. Do yourself a favor and keep driving by I-80 exit 46. - John - Tx Hill Country
