17 Parks near Neola, Iowa

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

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

The Shelby Inn and RV Park is an easy on-off stop while crossing Iowa. However, it is just a field with RV hookups. No frills. A few picnic tables to share. Fine for an overnight stop but nothing more. You were given a key to turn on the water but it took a walk back to the office to exchange keys until we found one that fit. Pretty pricey. But, it works for the night. - themom3

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

The sites are long and fairly level. They are on grass, and the interior roads are dirt with lots of potholes. It would probably be a good overnight stop, but since it rained the night we pulled in, it was a big mud hole. The restrooms were closed and locked so I can't tell you whether or not they're kept clean, but judging from the outside of them I'd say "no". There was a car at the camp host's RV, but we never saw him. We just walked over to the restrooms and filled out an envelope there and put a $20 bill in it. - mrpeepers

This is a fairgrounds park and not a destination park. It was perfect for us because we had lost the power steering in our car, which we noticed leaving a park about 40 miles away. Visited this town to get it fixed and it was done about 3 PM so rather than try to make up the day we lost, we drove 1/2 mile south to this park. The only other person there was the workcamper, a very nice older gentleman. The sites are grass; some are lumpy due to previous camper tires, and there are scattered trees. We did not have any difficulty getting satellite TV, Verizon data and AT&T cell phone signals. Small town, excellent and fair auto repair and a good home cooking restaurant. It was a great place to stop overnight, only about 2 miles south off I-80. We would definitely camp here again. - Peter K

This park is owned and operated by the county fair board and has little funding. It is not well maintained and some of the campers here are long term for various reasons. It is a safe but crude park. Mostly used by over nighters and people visiting in the area. This corner of the state is very short of decent campgrounds. - Rollenhome

We were referred to this campground by another campground which was full. We pulled into this place and should have pulled out, but we were tired. The campground is old and not taken care of, the bathrooms and showers were bad. Our septic line backed up and we had we had to dump at another site. The park caters to monthly, but most the rigs were clean. This park is still a pretty park, grassy and shady, just run down and dirty. Due to recent flooding (which had not reached the park) the water was not fit to drink, luckily it did not leave a stain. This place was way over priced, don't bother stopping. - 10-10

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

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

This is one very nice county campground that is RV friendly. Very clean and quite with large sites. Lots of fireflies and deer to watch in the tree line. Missouri River is across the parking lot. No reservations so week-ends can be problem. Work campers run the place, but they were very friendly and helpful. - Zimectrin

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

I do not recommend this Park. Owner insists on parking the rig himself. Office is often unattended. Phones unanswered. Will not take reservations. Unfriendly. Caters to construction and long term renters rather than over-nighters or short term. - Rollenhome

The above rate includes tax. This park is small and even though it was about half full, I think they were all long-term residents except us. Our experience with most long-term parks seems they can be 'trashy' but this one was pretty well maintained and not a lot of 'stuff' around. Power and water pressure were good, however, we couldn't get our satellite to work because of all the trees. Sites moderate in size and the manager/owner was pleasant (just not overly friendly). We'd stay here again as it is convenient to areas we want to visit. - Wannabees

Sites are VERY close together, Can't put out awnings. No picnic tables. I called ahead and was told there was WiFi. When I registered they said the WiFi was inside the casino and I could bring my computer inside.
Showers were basically in good shape but needed a deep cleaning. Wads of hair in drain, and you could tell showers hadn't been washed in weeks. Water flow was a lukewarm trickle.
Would not go back. - Silvana CLark
