This is a very well kept county park,it is however a very tight fit for larger units. The trout stream is the draw for this park, as the DNR stocks it for the weekend campers. No reservations so one has to get there early for a spot, however well worth it. From the nature center to the many walking trails there is enough to keep you busy.
Very pleasant and well thought out park. If you do not like kids this is not for you. The owner has taken great pride in providing a clean well kept RV park. The one major problem if you do not get full hook up is the location of the "Dump Station", you need to plan ahead before using it. I will be back to this park. Great location also for the casino.
Located almost half way between Denver and Fort Collins this park is way above AAA rating. Each site has large concrete pads plus very clean. The park is a little closer to I-25 than I would like the sound of the highway is not that bad. I does lack shade in over 80% of the sites however. Many well maintained walking paths around the three large ponds. I will stop here again.
As the park has new owners (since May) it seems they are turning a KOA to a Good Sam. The park has the normal KOA pull throughs very very narrow. The park was clean and well kept. I would stay here again.
All in all for an overnight KOA it was very nice. My main concern is it is out in the middle of no ware, miles from anything. I asked the staff about the closest place to get diesel no one knew. Closet anything is about 15 miles away. Plan ahead before stopping.
This park is fantastic! Not only is everything clean and well kept, they have free mini golf and free paddle boats. The owner is on site at all times to make sure your stay is one of the best around. I first thought being somewhat close to the highway there would be a lot of noise; there was none. They have expanded by making two sets of 4 unit rings for groups with one big fire pit. It's a little tight but doable for my 35' 5th wheel. The $20 rate was after the (2) Good Sam discounts. I will come back to this park.
I found this park to be greatly unkempt. For the most part there are no pads to park on. The pad sites are for the seasonal campers. The grass looked as if it had not been cut for a couple weeks. The tables and the floors in two covered areas were full of bird droppings, making them unusable. I will only return if I have to. For the dollars paid, it is far over priced.
As I belong to a camping group we stay here often, which is too bad. The fairground does not keep up with the needs of RVers. The electric is bad, you are parking on grass and if wet, you will sink down. The location of the dump station is very poor at best. This area is more for groups, however an upgrade to the area needs to be done.
This park although only has pit toilets, is by far a very clean and up scale county park. The sites are large and for most part level. Each site has a large area with fire ring and picnic table. I will be staying there again
This is a city park located on the south side of Independence Iowa. The sites are level and long enough for a large unit. However too short to handle my 35' fifthwheel and the truck. They do provide parking for tow vehicles however. Cable is included with the $15 per night fee. Will stay there again.
As stated in the May post, this campground has had to deal flooding all summer. In talking to the owner they had 8 floods this summer. With that said, the park was great with much to do. My only neg. comment was the width of the gravel pads. I think they could have made them wider. This however may be fixed by next year. A great park I plan on returning.
This by far was the most friendly group of campground host I have ever seen. From help get into site to giving me coupons to a local restaurant. I did have trouble with cable signal however. The only down side was no fire pit, camping without a fire was hard to adjust to. My 35' fifth wheel took up most of the site very little room for truck. I would stay there again
For a center of town place to park the rig this campground is OK. On the plus side for an extra $15.00 you get a wrist band for entrance to the major park across the street. That was worth the stay. On the neg side sites are narrow if the park was full awnings could not be out. The TWO pull throughs they have are at the end of the parking lot. You are really just in the middle of the road. I would stay there again
This is a county park with a lot of potential. The sites are wide, however for my low rating is the fact the park is out of the times. There are no pads leveling is very hard. Some of the electric boxes are too far away for normal elecric cords. I would not stay again.
I have to agree with the other ratings for this park. Although my main focus is on the width of the sites. Many of the sites due to trees you can not put out your awning. Its true side by side camping.
This park all though not a resort has many fine points if you are looking for a true park. The park is clean and well maintained, the owners are taking large steps to enhance the park for everyone. There is a good Mini Golf course many play areas and the Alpacas to entertain campers. We stayed there for a week and would go back.
