Latest Iowa State Park Info

Park Facility Changes (Updated 5/20/2020):

Campgrounds are open for self-contained camping units only until May 22, 2020. Starting at 8:00 a.m. on May 22, 2020, campgrounds will be open for all types of camping units, including RVs, pop-up campers and tents with or without bathroom facilities or portable toilets. Some campgrounds may be closed due to construction or maintenance issues, so please check the specific closure information below for each park before planning a camping trip.

Some campsites may be closed to ensure social distancing.

Campers only in the campground; no guests allowed.

All modern restrooms and shower buildings will be available starting at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, May 22, 2020. Drinking fountains remain closed.

Cabins and yurts will be open starting Friday, May 22, 2020 and beyond. Reservations can be made on-line through the reservation system. Please note there is a four-day reservation window. For those interested in renting cabins for the rental period starting Friday, May 22, contact the park office or the Backbone concessionaire for cabins at Backbone State Park. All kitchenware has been removed from cabins, including dishes, pots and pans; please bring your own from home. Additionally, check-in time is now 5:00 p.m. and check-out time is now 9:00 a.m. (changed from 4:00 p.m. and 11:00 a.m, respectively) to allow for extra time to clean between rentals.
Shelters, lodges, youth campsites, group camps and playgrounds remain closed.

If you feel cancelling your stay is the safest choice, we will waive cancellation fees for visits (cabins, campsites, lodges, shelters) with arrival dates through May 31, 2020. The $4.00 non-refundable reservation fee ($6.00 if the reservation was originally made by phone) will still be charged. To cancel, contact the Customer Service Call Center at (877) 427-2757.

Programs and events at all state parks are currently cancelled. Visitor centers, museums and nature centers managed by state parks remain closed.
We are monitoring the situation. We promise to remain diligent and intentional in protecting you and making your visit a great experience. As conditions change, so may our policies on park visitation and overnight stays. We will keep you informed of any changes moving forward.

Other areas of state parks and forests that remain open for day use include: trails, roads, lake and river access points, boat ramps, shorelines, and open spaces such as grassy areas.

Hi All,
Good morning. Just another day in Paradise. Headed for Lacey Keosauqua State Park Friday... I think they may not have wanted to miss out on all the $$$ for the Memorial Day weekend. Have a nice weekend.
