“Every thing you could want except sewer hookups”

This site is on the Des Moines River just downstream of the Saylorville Dam.  Indeed, the dam looms just a few yards away and one loop is next to the outflow.  The facilities are high quality and the site seemed to attract a good group of campers.  You will also see locals who come to fish in the river. How can you beat the price?

“Sweet campground!”

We pulled in around 10 pm. Office closes at 9 so we called ahead. Very nice staff gave us directions. There are 3 loops, we stayed in the first loop in a pull thru site by the river. Had a picnic table, fire ring, level white gravel site and 20 or 30 amp power hook up for $18. Hiking trail, dam, fishing, beach up the road and super nice scenery. Bath house was super clean, 2 showers.
