    Well kept secret in a beautiful corner of Iowa. Campground is basic, but pristine sites, stunning location and not crowded. Low key staff but helpful and supportive. Great canoe livery service. Canoeing or kayaking the Upper Iowa is an experience not to be missed. Well...More

    Camping in any campground can be an adventure on Friday/Saturday nights from my personal experience. There are 4/5 other outfitters on the river besides me and yes Saturdays are extremely busy. I am available 24/7 if you have a problem with any of my campers....More

    We didn't stay at the campground, but we drove through it and it's very nice! Huge! We rented canoes from Chimney Rock and it was great. We opted for a 2 hour ride, and it was less than a 10 minute drive away (you leave...More
