North Overlook Campground is a comfortable place to camp, though it's not as private as I usually like (most Iowa campgrounds aren't). It's across the road from Lake Red Rock, which offers a beautiful view and beach super close to the campground—yaas! We (me + two buddies) had a great spot—spacious and tree covered. DNR was pretty tight, and asked us to leave the beach when we went for a late-night walk, so we sat around our campfire. There is a trail off of the campground, and one friend explored at night. He said he came upon a tepee. ...he was also on that peace pipe, though. ;) <3
