“Beautiful view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

Attending a wedding on a warm September afternoon was a most pleasant experience in this neatly kept park. When you get to the very top, you look across the Mississippi River to the bluffs of Iowa.

“Very Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

I went to Nelson Dewey in early spring with my boyfriend and we both had a really good time. It is a beautiful park with a few cute trails to walk and the staff was very friendly. There were humming birds everywhere (if you have a feeder to attract them). We camped right next to the walk-in campsites and we got to check those out before any else arrived and they were beautiful. If you have the chance try to get one of these sites, the view is spectacular.

The park is both clean and well kept especially the bathrooms, they were awesome! One of the big upsides of this park is that Cassville is so close (its like a 2 minutes drive from the park) that it made picking up groceries a breeze. Another plus was that there are other parks located close by to visit as well. We had a blast camping here and I would love to go back again.
