Great park, host very helpful! Security provided by park rangers who are very friendly and helpful. Nice level site #1. Good WiFi. Cell phone worked well in this area. We camped at F.W. Kent Park in a Motorhome.

I stayed just one night and it was self check in. The area was very clean and well kept. The site I used was fairly level. There were a lot of sites to choose from that looked good for a motorhome. The Wi-Fi signal was excellent and had a good phone signal on AT&T. I did use the restroom and showers and they were very clean. We camped at F.W. Kent Park in a Motorhome.

Self check-in was easy but you will need to follow the signs a fair distance to find the actual entrance to the campground area. Once in the campground it would be hard to pick a bad spot as most have great views of the surrounding forested hills and meadows. We set up in one of two ADA sites that were a short walk from the centrally located shower facility. Water service is spaced evenly between most RV sites requiring transport or topping off your internal tank. There are several WiFi hot spots identified on the campground map that can help you to select a site that will assure you with great reception. We camped at F.W. Kent Park in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The park does not have a "camp store" on its premises so campers will need to come with necessary stores or take a 15 minute drive to Tiffin, IA.

This campground has 86 sites. The roads are paved but the camp sites are gravel and very level. The sites are large and well spaced, some are back ins and some are pull throughs along side the road. This is a very beautiful park 1,052 acres with a very nice swimming beach, hiking trails and picnic areas. No reservations, first come first serve, but I had the choice of just about any site coming in on a Wednesday. They have free WiFi also. We camped at F.W. Kent Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice county park with well spaced sites. It is hilly terrain so many of the sites require leveling. Flatter sites available at the bottom of the hills. Good selection of pull thru and back in sites. Located about 12 miles from the Amana Colonies and close to Iowa City. Having wi-fi with excellent speed was a nice surprise! Beach was closed due to poor water quality while we where here. First come, first serve but we called the ranger to check on availability on the way there. We camped at F.W. Kent Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fresh water fill is available at dump station. It was not busy so we pull in the opposite direction on our way in. Some water hydrants available along camp roads also.

We stayed one night on our way from MN to Springfield, IL. This is a very nice park and we had the pick of the sites as there were very few people staying here. We stayed in the site next to the handicap site and it was very level and easy to back into with our motorhome. We did check out the showers, but, they were not the best - very little privacy and nowhere to set bottles of shampoo, etc. This is usual for state park campgrounds versus a private rv park. Good value. We camped at F.W. Kent Park in a Motorhome.

A great value - nicely maintained park near Amana Colonies for a great price. Beautiful lake with hiking/biking trail all around easily accessed from the campground. Large sites with shade yet we could get the satellite dish connected :). The only negative was several of the sites were at a decent slant so it took more than just the leveling jacks to get level... We camped at F.W. Kent Park in a Motorhome.

Very quiet & restful. 1,082 acres, mostly woods but some small prairies. 4 mile plus road great for biking though 3 mean hills. Nice trails for hiking &/or easy mountain biking. Cross country skiing. Large lake (17acres) for fishing with swim area. Nice walking path around lake. Have stayed here frequently for a local get-a-way. Easy access from I-80 @ Tiffin. Only 4 or 5 miles. Bathroom/shower kept clean. Host very friendly. We camped at F.W. Kent Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful! It is one of the nicest State/County Parks I've stayed at. It is of course without water and sewer, but that is what is expected at a State Park. We would definitely stay again! Showers were wonderful and sites were very spacious and shaded. We camped at F.W. Kent Park in a Travel Trailer.

A "hidden jewell". Beautiful lake with hiking/biking trail all around. 4+ mile hard surface road (w/3 hills) for "road" bikers. Lots of hiking trails. Fishing w/Iowa license. All sites with plenty of shade. Campground is well maintained and very relaxing. We camped at F.W. Kent Park in a Motorhome.
