If you and your family are looking for an RV park with spectacular views, lots of room to hike and lakes to fish in, camping at Pine Lake Campground inside of Pine Lake State Park may be just what you are looking for. The campground is a bit on the rustic side, but when you have a beautiful lake to swim or fish in, life is good. There are horseshoe pits, a place to rent boats, a playground for the kids, and trails to hike. It's the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life; with no WiFi or TV, you can relax and concentrate on having a good time in the great outdoors when you go RV camping at Pine Lake Campground
There are over 100 sites to choose from for your campervan rental, including spots with full hookups, many more with 50 amp electrical hookups, and plenty more with no hookups. When your day is done, you can clean up with a hot shower in the spotless bathhouse, sit around the fire ring and sit back and look at the stars in an area where there is very little in the way of light pollution.
Pine Lake offers a great place to go motorhome camping, but you may find you want to do more than stay within the RV campground or the park itself. Just outside of the park is the town of Eldora, IA, where you and your family will find a number of things to keep you busy, including a golf course, an archery club, and an incredible aquatic center with water slides that is open all summer long. It is also home to the Civilian Conservation Corps/Prisoner of War Recreational Hall, the only remaining building of a camp used first to house Italian prisoners of war who came here from Missouri to help harvest hemp and then German POWs who worked in the Marshall canning factories. From plenty of outdoor activities to simply being able to take a deep breath and relax, Pine Lake State Park camping is sure to deliver.
Pine Lake State Park covers 585 acres of woods, the Iowa River, and two lakes set in the middle of miles of rolling farmlands. Within the park are five picnic areas, each of which has fireplaces, picnic tables, and restrooms. The park sports over ten miles of hiking trails where you can walk amongst 250-year-old white pines. Each of these trails has been marked to show specific points of interest you can find in the trail brochures found at each trailhead. For the very brave, you can take the 50-mile-long bike ride that runs between Pine Lake and George Wyth Memorial State Park. It's a long ride that uses several county highways until you reach Cedar Falls, where you will be on established bike paths.
For the avid hiker looking for something a little different, there is the Wildcat Trail. This two-mile trail leads over a footbridge and along the riverbank until you come to Wildcat Cave. At the entrance to this small cave, you can see signatures on the walls that date as far back as the 19th century. The cave is also rumored to have once been used as a hideout of famous outlaw Jesse James, but there is nothing to prove it. It's still a nice hike while RV camping at Pine Lake Campground.
Just outside of Pine Lake State Park is the city of Eldora, a small town with a lot to offer while you are camping with an RV nearby. If you need to stock up on supplies for your rental RV, you'll find everything from convenience stores to fun and funky stores in the downtown area. No matter what supplies you might need, you should be able to find them here. Iowa is best known for its farms, something you can learn about in the Hardin County Farm Museum when you park your RV rental nearby. The exhibits cover farming and farm equipment up through the 1950s before the advent of "large scale, self-propelled" equipment.
In nearby Des Moines, you can visit the Blank Park Zoo. The zoo covers 30 acres and is a great place for a family adventure when you're camping at Pine Lake Campground. Here you can feed a giraffe or watch rhinos at play. A portion of all entrance fees goes towards helping to save animals living in the wild. Inside the zoo are a number of endangered species such as the addax, Amur tiger, and eastern black rhino. You never know what babies you might see here, thanks to the cooperative breeding program.
Waterloo, IA is home to the Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum, named for five brothers who served and died on the USS Juneau during WWII. The ship sank after being crippled by Japanese torpedoes. The museum honors Iowa's veterans of every war and conflict from the Spanish-American War through WWI and II, in Korea, Vietnam, and current conflicts. Countless displays include letters to and from the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines, diaries detailing daily life, photographs, and more. You can even learn about Iowa's participation in the Civil War.
If you don't mind a short drive (you can ride the 50-mile bike trail) to Cedar Rapids, you can check out several museums, including the National Czech & Slovak Museum and Library. The museum focuses on the Czech and Slovak life here in the U.S. and through many different exhibits, explores both the original families and their descendants through the ages. You can take a trip back to the 1800s in the Sleger Immigrant Home, a 1.5-story house in which five generations of the Sleger family lived starting from the 1890s and ending in 1984.
