Wonderful County Park
Hundreds of acres, rolling hills, hiking trails, lots of woods. Electricity only at sites. Many tent sites. Des Moines is a nice town to shop in. Nice place, we'll go back.

Where Do You Pay?
Arrived just before dark. Website says only 7 of 48 reservable so came without a reservation on October 29. Lots of sites available so set up. Could not find any information in the park entrance on how to self register or on website. Left early in the morning as they were starting to oil the road at park entrance and didn't want it all over our vehicles. Felt bad about not paying, but they need to make it convenient for campers. Never camped before without paying.

Beautiful little county park. Electric only at site. Water available
Dump station. 2 areas both with clean restrooms, but the county has put water savers on everything. The lavatories run such little water that you can hardly wash your hands,,let alone anything else. The showers you have a heck of a hard time rinsing soap off, and washing your hair is next to impossible. $20 a night

Nice park. Level sites. 2 areas each with it's own shower house and host.
Close to DM. Has only 9 sites that are reservable so the park fills up quick.
