I stayed one night at Shady Brook Campground when passing through Iowa on the way back to the east coast. I thought the campground was very nice. The RV spots were wide and level, and overall it was very clean and well kept. The showers and bathrooms were immaculate, private, free, and open 24hrs. Very important for late arrivals. They had a small playground for kids and firepits as well. Perfect for a passerbyer like myself.

Clean place, level pad, play area for kids. Very close to highway so there was highway noise throughout the night.

I arrived tired after a long drive from Denver and was welcomed warmly by Dave and Brenda. Offers to help set up were given, and I was grateful. Great trails to walk the dog and all amenities provided. thank you!
