Pilot Knob State Park, Iowa

Usually at the beginning and end of camping season, we visit Pilot Knob State Park in North Central Iowa.  It is a good place for us to break out the equipment from winter storage, clean it up and test it out.  We are usually there before the water and modern restrooms are open, but it has electricity year round, primitive restroom facilities, and a wide variety of sites to choose from.  New to the 2015 camping season is a rebuilt modern restroom and shower house facility.  There is also a new modernized dump station.

We have only visited the campground once during the regular season in the last few years, so I am not certain how busy it is during the camping season.  The park does have some nice hiking trails, there are a few ponds for fishing, and there is a wide variety of wildlife that visits the park.

Pilot Knob is also a stones throw away from Forest City, Iowa, the home of the Winnebago.  There are some good amenities in town for dinning and groceries.
