Iowa Camping tips

State park camping is available year-round in most places depending upon weather conditions. Heavy snowfalls may prevent access to the campground as not all roads are routinely maintained. Modern conveniences such as water, flush toilets and shower buildings are closed during the winter months. It is recommended that campers may want to call ahead and check the weather and road conditions before heading out to camp.

Camping Guidelines
Camping is permitted only in designated areas. Camping is restricted to one basic unit per site except that a tent may be placed on the site with the basic unit. The area occupied by the small tent shall be no more than 8 feet by 10 feet and the tent shall hold no more than four people.

There are both state parks and private campgrounds in Iowa.
