We arrived in our 40 Ft. motorhome. We had the good sense to disconnect and drive around park before trying to take the MH in to the park. Glad we did. The turn around for the upper sites (sites to the right--we were suppose to be in site 38) was too small for our motorhome to make the turn and it wasn't all paved so if we would of had to back up [we would of] and negotiate the very tight circle, we would of been in soft ground. It also had some low branches that gave us concern. We decided not to stay and looked to cancel our reservations with Reserve America. Try finding the cancelation window. And they were closed. So we are probably going to be out the $61.00 for the three nights but I feel that the right decision was made. Overall it looked like a nice little campground but it is not set up for big rigs [at least the sites to the right] and they don't say that on their website. And they don't tell you about that really tight circle to get out. The sites to the left after you come into the park look better equipped for big rigs but they don't all have water and I think they didn't have sewer also. Its a tight turn around there also but it is all paved and would be easier. We camped at Lake Macbride State Park in a Motorhome.

The primitive camping area is perfect for tents. There are flush toilets, and a small boat ramp--but no showers. You can get a site near the water, but you'll probably have to reserve online. If you don't care about being near the water, you can find a site without a reservation on most weekends. This park features a unique spillway/waterfall where MacBride flows into the Iowa River. It is safe to walk across this spillway area. This is a good place to fish with small children. Lots of small bluegill that are easy to catch. There's also a well maintained beach area. We camped at Lake Macbride State Park in a Tent.

A nice state park, a little on the smaller side. To get turned around it is very tight. Sites are nice and level with not much privacy between you and your neighbors. I would probably not stay here again. We camped at Lake Macbride State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stopped here for one night while traveling, sites were nicely laid out and fairly level. We camped at Lake Macbride State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
