We camped for one night in the campground. The park is very pretty. The host and hostess for the campground were great. They went above and beyond to offer fun things for the campers to participate in.

This is a great place to spend the afternoon either as a drive or to get out and stretch your legs in the park. Have taken canoes there in the past and enjoyed canoeing for a couple of hours. Love driving through the bridge

This park has a campground and some Yurts to rent. Go see them to learn what a Yurt is. There is a river to play in and some walking trails. A nice place for nature close to Winterset sites.
