When my GPS couldn't find it, I should have taken this as a sign and gone someplace else. There is heavy road construction going on with the Frontage Road that the Park is located on so the GPS doesn't know where to go. We are traveling in a 39 footer towing a car so not knowing where to go became very traumatic at times. I can't blame the Park for this, but I can blame them for what happen next. They put us in a 50 amp site but we couldn't get any Dish reception. Next they put us in a 30 amp site that had low voltage. I lived through 2 stressful days of constantly watching the meter. For a very brief time I could run an A/C, but nothing else. One time I had nothing plugged in but the frig and coffee pot. I had to switch the frig to gas so I could continue brewing my coffee. When I wanted to heat the hot water for a shower I had to heat it with gas. Here I am paying for 30 amp electric but couldn't use it for A/C, frig, hot water or much of anything else. Hadn't seen all the sights so I was going to stay a 3rd day but decided I couldn't handle the stress of possibly ruining my A/C. Give this Park some time to recover from the construction work and update their electrical systems.
Lady at front office (school teacher) was very friendly and informative of things to see and do. Park is located beside a beautiful lake with trees and plenty of ducks. Had a fitness room, pool, cafe & store. If you wanted to go into the pool after 5:00 pm you would have to hike back to the front gate for the key which would be quite a walk. We didn't want to unhitch our car so we decided not to swim. The cafe & store never opened the two partial days we were there which surprised us since we didn't leave until 11:00 am on a Friday. Sites are a bit old and hard to maneuver a big rig. Was hard to get out of site without hitting trees. All in all it was a OK park which would be best suited for midsize RVs.
Priced right at $14 a night for CCUSA members. Had full hookups with 50 amps. Interior roads need work due to being washed out. Site wasn't very level. On way out of the park the automatic gate wasn't working so they had to call repairman to fix it to allow us to leave. Did this all pretty quickly. If you have a tow car this park was conveniently located as a jumping off place to see Bridges of Madison County in Winterset, Iowa. All in all not bad for the money.
What a gem. The host couple were very friendly and told us of all the things to see and do. Each day we walked the one hour lake loop which was located directly across from campground. The campground is very quiet and well maintained. No water hookups but fresh water was available to fill up your tank. Watch your voltage meter. We were here in a heat spell and our site voltage ran at the low end of safe. We shut off one A/C and kept an eye on things. We were only going to spend two days but ended up staying an extra day since this park was such a pleasure to stay at. Would definitely stay here again if we happen to be passing through.
The front office was very friendly. The maintenance man and his dog Molly were also very friendly. He told us what tourist sights we should see. The Campground is quiet. Our only complaint would be that the voltage was low. That could be because it was extremely hot and everyone was running their AC's. It is a good place for a stop over.
The staff is very friendly. Gave us mints and plenty of handouts of what was happening locally in the area. Assigned us a clean & spacious RV spot. Quiet campground but winds really picked up during the middle of the night. Conveniently located to tourist attractions such as museums, prison & fairgrounds. Not sure if pool is closed temporarily or permanently. Great place for a stop over.
