This is one of those little known secrets of Iowa. This state park is located just outside of Hampton on Highway 3. They have an awesome campground that is set up for a great time. You have plenty of grass space to enjoy your weekend. There is a great lake that has many hours of fishing in store for you as well as a swimming beach. The thing that is the best is walking below the spillway and seeing some of the great work that was done to our park systems in the past. We also used the new Iowa Park reservation web-site for this past holiday weekend to ensure a spot. We had spot 45 and it was great.
They also have showers and a playground. The sites are electric, but there is not water at each site, so you might want to fill up before you come or remember to fill up once you get there!
