7 Parks near Osceola, Iowa
Dec 2016 - $20.00
This is still one of the few camping areas open all year in the north. They have made improvements and repairs to the sites and roads since we were here last winter so it was easier to get in and out for an overnight stop. - Nautical Wheelers

They are upgrading many sites. So there is some construction. Easy access to I35. We had great cable. We parked on a level concrete site. There is grass between most sites and small trees. They do offer service to and from the casino. We will definitely stay here again. - Full timer with dogs

Be careful if coming from the North through town, our GPS wanted us to route us under a bridge less than 10 ft high. The RedBuds were in full bloom and beautiful. The fishing is apparently very good here and in the area. The campsites are quite close so it gets a 7 instead of a nine. - stetwood

The roads and sites are very tight and not conducive for big rigs. We moved four different times to get a semi-level site which still maxed out our leveling system. Difficult to get satellite. Park people were nice. - The DnD Adventure
Sep 2013 - $16.00
This is a very nice, clean park which we really enjoyed. The sites are easy to get into and fairly spacious. The park is on a beautiful lake with many activities including hiking trails, fishing, boat rentals and swimming. We stayed here over labor day weekend and although the park was full, it didn't feel crowded. The restrooms were clean and well maintained. Will definitely stay here again when passing through. - User3145

Plenty of room to hike and bike. Be careful on the upper camping area, the turns on the west side on very tight. Cutbacks have affected Iowa campgrounds as some of the picnic areas are not being mowed, just paths to and around them. - stetwood

Loved this park, we stayed in full sun for our sat dish and all utilities worked great. Very quiet and peaceful. Close to the town of Wintersett and all the covered bridges. - michelle 17

Arriving at the park's main North entrance, we pulled through the rock tunnel with ease. NOTE 12-1/2' height limit here, taller RVs should use the 4 mile gravel road entrance on the park's East side.
We met up with a friend of ours, and stayed in the shady back-in spots. Another friend opted to stay in the wide open full-sun campground loop that has pull-through concrete pads and good satellite reception. All the campground roads are gravel. Our almost-level gravel site was well spaced with a picnic table. The 30 amp electricity was nice for running our air conditioner. The water spigots are located between sites and have a "Y" for both trailers to use at the same time. We did have afternoon sun on our patio side, while sites across the road had morning sun on their doors. A storm the day before left the sites covered with small branches, which we used as kindling for our campfire.
The park's ford was washed out from the rain, so we did not wade or play in the water. The other roads were open for walking.
Verizon MiFi worked some times during the day - OK by me.
We will return. - AluminumCloud

We called ahead to ask about the campground and reserve a site. No reservations accepted, unless you are bringing a large group or coming for the weekend. OK, so we asked how full the campground was currently and were told there were plenty of sites just go in and pick one, fill out the paperwork and deposit it and payment at the self service kiosk. We asked if the park could handle a 45' motorhome and were told no problem the sites are all 70 feet.
The park has 34 camp sites with 20/30/50 provided at every site: 22 sites have full hookups (E/W/S), 11 have E/W only and 1 has E only. All sites are back in and according to the campground brochure they are 15' X 50', there is no extra parking anywhere. We arrived at 12:30 PM on a Tuesday, only 1 FHU site was available for our week in Winterset as the site reservations were not until June 28 according to the sign. Most sites were reserved beginning the next day, Wed, or Friday. Come in prepared to go somewhere else if the no-reservation system is working like it did for us.
With that being said, this is a great little park! Quiet right on the south east side of town. The city park it is attached to is a wonderful place to walk, bicycle, have a picnic and enjoy nature. It is a quick drive to visit the "Bridges of Madison County" and the John Wayne Birthplace and Museum. - Harley Oma

This city park campground is a real gem; the city park service that administers this campground is a real credit to their profession. As city campgrounds go, this one should be rated an 11! The full hookups were adequate; the water faucet is placed between two spaces so make sure you come here with more than a 25 foot fresh water hose. The only improvements that could make the park absolutely perfect would be to add more gravel to areas that can become muddy when heavy rains come and the park should add co-mingled recycling. You really do need to call ahead if you wish to stay on a weekend or holiday during the prime spring and summer season. There are lots of things to see and do in the area; so, plan to stay a while if you can. We would definitely stay here again. - Kent and Margaret

This city park is very clean, well-maintained, and quiet. The gravel road loops around to all the gravel back-in sites. Sites are rather wide, as the trailers are stagger-parked on each side of the loop. Restrooms were clean with 2 shower stalls that were spotless. As the county seat of Madison County, the town's small businesses are alive and well - many within a longer walk around the town square. Right at the park is a fun corn maze, and a 1-mile trail to historic stone Clark Tower. Good Verizon phone and MiFi connections. - AluminumCloud

A good place to stay with full hookup sites. The site was fairly level and was able to level up with no difficulty. The hookups were adequate and there is a Verizon tower on the grounds. A great place to camp when the other campgrounds in Winterset are full. There is a sign stating that the campground is closed July 6-20 for the county fair. That date would vary some year to year. We definitely would stay here again. - Kent and Margaret
