The 930-acre park is only about 20 minutes southeast of Coon Rapids. If you're driving in from the south, stop in at Panora, only 15 minutes from Springbrook State Park.

Getting Outdoors

While RV camping at Springbrook State Park, get outdoors and enjoy the park's natural beauty. A total of 12 miles of hiking and biking trails wind throughout the park. When out on the trails in the morning or evening, expect to see deer snacking on the abundant grasses and plants found in the park. Pick up a trail guide from the park office so you know which trails best fit your athletic capabilities. Some of the trails connect Springbrook State Park with the Conservation Education Center, where guests are welcome to explore. During the winter months, four miles of trail is designated for snowmobiling.

The 17-acre lake and access to the Middle Raccoon River are big draws for Springbrook State Park campers. Pack your sunscreen and bathing suit and enjoy some water fun. Visitors can lounge on the sandy beach for an afternoon of sunbathing. Swimming is permitted, but there's no lifeguard on duty at the park. A boat launch ramp is located on the lake and another one on the river. Fishing is another popular activity on the lake. Anglers can cast their lines in hopes of catching largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill, or catfish.

Hunting is permitted in designated areas of Springbrook State Park during certain seasons.

Exploring the Area

Once you've called time on your camping adventure, drive over to Des Moines and visit the Blank Park Zoo. This 49-acre zoo houses several endangered species. Visitors can meander through the zoo, learning tidbits of information about the animals they see along the way. Animal lovers can also take part in various educational presentations about the animals, including the reptile show, penguin exhibit, and big cat sanctuary.

After visiting the Blank Park Zoo, stop by the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden. This garden was founded in 1929 and showcases plants from all around the world, but the main focus is on the conservation of local flora. A popular collection at the garden is the Bonsai collection as well as Carrie the Corpse Flower. Visitors can walk through seven acres of outdoor gardens that have been carefully cultivated to inspire and educate those who visit.

No Des Moines camping excursion is complete without stopping to tour the Iowa State Capitol building. The statehouse serves as the seat of the state's General Assembly, Senate, and House of Representatives. Visitors can join one of the many tours that are held throughout the day or schedule a tour. Video and virtual tours are also available for those who don't have the time to tour the building and grounds. Be sure to make a stop at the gift shop to pick up a souvenir or two.
