Camping

We try hard to be open all year for nightly camping but occasionally we close because of snow. Weekly camping is available from March through November subject to availability. Call ahead December through February to check on the weather. Our office is open every day from 8AM to 9PM. All sites are open March through November.

Just 1200 feet from our restaurant and convenience store you’ll find our 38 pull-thru campsites. All the sites are easy to enter and exit and are conveniently located near the newly renovated showers and laundry houses. Whether you’re looking for a shady spot to park your trailer or a wide open site to park your big rig we can accommodate you. View the campground map for all the details to help you select the site that best fits your requirements.

We have an F-5 rated tornado shelter for the peace of mind of our campers during those rare Iowa storms.

The rates posted do not apply to the following 2017 race dates; June 23 and 24, July 8 and 9, and July 28 and 29.

Site Information

Sites #1 thru #15 are strong 20/30 amp electric with water hook-up from a municipal supply. These sites are 18’ wide and 65’-85’ long. The sites are staggered so you will not get the feeling you are cramped in and each site has a view. Most sites are shaded. All of these sites are close to the shower and laundry. Sites 11-15 have sewer hook-up.  Local TV reception is very good but satellite reception is difficult because of the trees. Sites 1-10 are restricted to vans, popups, toppers, and other campers or trailers 25′ long or less.  Wi-fi is accessible at any booth in the restaurant.
See blue sites #1-#15 on map.

Sites #16-#23 are 20/30/50 amp electric with sewer & water hook-up from a municipal supply. These sites are 26’ wide by 75’ long. The sites are staggered so you will not feel cramped. These sites are near the shower and laundry and are shaded. Picnic tables are at each site.  We get many big-rigs using these sites but satellite reception is not likely and you may brush a few low hanging branches as you enter the site. We recommend sites #24-#38 for the most discriminating big-rigs. Wi-fi is accessible at any booth in the restaurant.
See green sites #16-#23 on map.

Sites #24-#38 are 20/30/50 amp electric with sewer connections and water hook-up from a municipal supply. These sites were all new in 2007. Sites are specifically designed for the largest rigs with solid gravel, 33’ width, 85’ length, superior electric capacity, and easy in and out. Sites offer excellent satellite reception and no trees.
