The good stuff first: excellent camp host, nice and convenient location, well maintained and a great deal—we stayed for two months for $500 a month. Water, sewer, 50 amp and free WiFi. Decent verizon signal, and OK over the air TV. Town is small but has a good grocery store and an excellent Mexican restaurant as well as a micro-Brewery. The not so good—the campground floods. It is on the river, and it was closed early in the summer and then almost closed again in late September. In the meantime, the sites are gravel/grass on the outer ring, and all grass in the middle. And when it rains, the campground middle becomes a lake. We had to be towed out (thank you Good Sam and Geifer’s Towing) from the middle on Labor Day, and as soon as we pulled into one of the outer ring sites (which are gravel/grass), we sunk right back in—got ourselves out of that one but it was a mess. Would be nice to see investment in concrete or asphalt pads, or at least more gravel/crushed rock. We camped at Watona Park in a Motorhome.

Dirt/gravel/grassy sites and it had recently rained a lot so some sites were very muddy. Some were under water due to flooding. One entrance was closed. There is a camp host on site at the entrance. He told us to park wherever we wanted so we chose a spot backed up to the beautiful golf course. The site was long enough for our 32' plus the truck so we didn't have to unhook. AT&T phones worked great. Park WiFi showed up under connections but it was secured so only being there one night I didn't ask if we could use it. Got plenty of antenna TV channels. Water pressure was the best we've had in months.

Ball park nearby with a game going on but still managed to be peaceful. We were told by neighbors there is a very good Mexican restaurant close by but it was closed because of the flooding. Watona Park was a very pleasant experience. We were there on a Wednesday night and there were only 3 other campers. Some sites were partially/mostly shaded. We would stay there again. We camped at Watona Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were here on a Saturday evening (after Labor Day) and there were lots of sites available. We have stayed here once before. Although the sites are back-to-back we were able to pull into a pull through space with no one on either side of us. The power is good and the water pressure was just right. The sewer hookup is funky because you unscrew a large plastic tree for the easiest way to empty your holding tanks.

The access roads are black top. This campground is next to a park and golf course; both emptied as the sun went down.

It is self registration so you will need cash or a check. We camped at Watona Park in a Motorhome.

Other than some slight traffic noise from a distance, and an occasional train horn, this campground was very quiet. The sites are narrow but long, grassy, and partially or mostly shaded. They will let you park your camper anywhere on the site that you want to; you're only limited by the length of your electric cord or water hose if you're hooking up. There is a golf course, softball field, soccer field, horse shoe pits, volleyball courts, and a city pool with a water slide. You do have to pay $4 per person to use the pool. The restrooms were well maintained. The only thing we found odd about this campground is the layout. The sites are set up so that you will have the back of your camper to the back of one neighbors camper, but your door facing the door of the other neighbors camper. There is also only one fire pit between the two campers whose doors are facing each other. We camped in a large group of family and friends, so this wasn't a problem, but if you're camping alone it could be awkward. We camped at Watona Park in a Tent Trailer.

This was a nice clean park, the staff was very friendly and helpful. It has a nice pool nearby that was not open yet. The golf course and ball fields were nice. They have playground equipment in 2 different areas of the park and they are both nice. One of the sets of playground equipment is much newer than the other. The park has 28 sites, 24 of which have full hookups. The downside is that this park should not have that many sites. It is way to small for that many sites. For us the single most important part of a camping site is space and location. We did not have a very good location, and there certainly was not much space between camping sites. This would probably be one we should have went to during the week instead of on the weekend when they were full. I don't think we will be back as there is many more in the area for us to explore. We camped at Watona Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was a very nice city park in a nice, clean small town. Sites were very well maintained with a friendly, local staff on site. A nice city-owned 9 hole golf course borders the RV park, as well as a city baseball diamond. Regular games are scheduled there, with the resulting noise and lights, but it is not excessive and ends early. The swimming pool is a city pool, located about a block from the RV park. We loved this place for it's beauty and quiet. We camped at Watona Park in a Fifth Wheel.
