Although it gets crowded on the weekends, most of the sites have plenty of room between them and there is a lot of shade. All sites have electricity and water and the dump station is free when you camp. There is potable water at the dump station and water spigots located throughout the campground. The shower and bathrooms were spotless and the campground is well kept overall. The sites are all gravel, mostly level, and most can accommodate even the biggest of rigs with extra parking spaces, if needed, are interspersed throughout the campground. Great place to stay and the campground hosts are friendly and helpful.
We've been here many times. Sites are large but very few have a view of the lake. What I like is the Neil Smith Trail is right at the campground entrance. It's a short walk to a large meadow for bird watching. Cycling on the trail is a real pleasure as it takes you all the way to downtown Des Moines.
This place it's extremely well maintained. It was built by the Army Corps of Engineers and seems to be well funded for upkeep. Sits on the bank of the Saylorville Lake. Lots of shade fun things for the kids to do. 3 bathroom/showers facilities scattered throughout the park. Two things of note. The address is very similar with either Place Avenue or Street. If you don't get it perfect your GPS will get you close but in a very roundabout way. I recommend just pushing on the directions button on the RV parking app. II is very near 2 Cherry Glen is the campground called Rob Shetler Park which overlooks the dam and spillway. Same pricing structure built by the Corps of Engineers and seems like a pretty cool place to stay. You might want to check it out before you check in to the Cherry Glen campground. Either one you can't go wrong. Perhaps it's staying 3 or 4 days Cherry Glen would be a better choice
