My husband and I have been coming to this park for years to fish and hike. It has 2 playgrounds, hiking trails and a boat ramp. There are primitive camp sites as well as electric. It can easily flood so be aware, but bounces back quickly to operating again. It has a great view of the Cedar River and many nice places to fish from. There is also a quarry there.

The day I visited this park it was a bit unnerving as the Cedar River was flooding certain areas of the park that I had begun to investigate then had to find an alternate way back to my vehicle. Talking with a local that was camping there, he told me that at certain times certain parts of this park does indeed flood but overall, its well worth camping there! For only ten bucks a night you get electricity; for seven bucks you get none(primitive).The park itself is over 228 acres. It offers: camping; drinking water; picnic shelters you can rent(two have full kitchens); picnic tables; fire pits and grills; great scenery right near the Cedar River; two quarries(none of which you can swim in but you CAN scuba dive in with permission);boat ramp; river and stream fishing; horse shoes; basketball court with hoop; a large screen that can be used to show movies on;plenty of space to stretch and toss a disc or two; play with the dog; playgrounds for the kids; trails to explore;There is history with with park as it once was one of three known limestone quarries in Iowa back in the 1880s(they have the pictures to prove it). Come explore this park and in my opinion, you will not be disappointed. Just be careful of the flooding.
