Discover Pilot Knob Campground


Pilot Knob State Park was dedicated in 1924 and draws visitors interested in exploring its historical structures. The park’s three stone bridges, stone shelter, observation tower, and amphitheater are all listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Besides being historically significant, the park is popular for wildlife viewing. In fact, it’s listed on the Iowa Wildlife Viewing Guide. Wildlife in the park includes deer and turkey. Perhaps you’ll see some as you explore miles of hiking trails, including eight miles of equestrian trails. Maybe you prefer spending your time on the water. If so, Pilot Knob State Park has a floating sphagnum bog and two lakes. If you decide you want to spend more than a day exploring the 700-acre park, you can always camp at the Pilot Knob Campground.

At the campground, you’ll find both electric and non-electric sites. Enjoy modern restrooms, hot showers, and a dump station. Traveling with children? There’s a playground near the campground. If you want to enjoy a picnic or a cookout, two open picnic shelters are available for reservation. Other recreational activities in and around the campground include horseshoe pits, mountain biking, wildflower viewing, cross-country skiing, and bird watching.

The Great Outdoors

Heritage Park of North Iowa is an awesome place to visit when you book an RV in Winnebago County.

If state parks are more your thing, head 20 minutes' drive north to Lake Mills, Iowa. Here, you’ll find Rice Lake State Park. Named for the 1,200-acre Rice Lake, the park is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts. Any size motor is allowed on the water, and popular activities at the park include water skiing, jet skiing, and fishing. Common catches on Rice Lake include perch, bullheads, bass, bluegill, walleye, crappie, and northern pike. Birdwatching is also popular here as the park is home to various song and migratory birds. Pelicans are known to stop at Rice Lake along their route. Neither tent nor RV camping is permissible at Rice Lake State Park.
