Located about 15 minutes East of Ames, IA on highway 30. Beautiful view of lake from almost all the sites. This is part of Hickory Grove State park. The lake is beautiful in the morning with the honking geese flying in. Lots of room between camp sites. This a nice clean place, we've stayed here several times.
Park is within half mile of Story City; a very clean small town that is about 15 minutes north of Ames. Antique Carousel with beautiful park and suspension bridge about 4 miles from campground. Campground has heated & clean shower/bathroom facilities; laundry room with exercise equipment. Small river/creek runs through the back of the grounds; playground; lots of trees & shade. Campground is lighted at night. Very nice place that we plan to use again.
