Iowa Parks Visitor Reviews
1/15/2015 3:04:44 PM Lacey-Keosauqua State Park by Danial T.
fond memory of a brief visit - We had picnic lunch there in September 1980 when my wife, our baby, and I, were driving to Chicago from San Diego. My grandfather grew up in Van Buren County before he moved to California long ago, and that made my visit particularly poignant and sweet. The woods were wonderful and lovely. Now that I am retired I want to go back and camp a few nights. I have since learned that my great-grandfather was buried in 1894 at Fellows Cemetery just down the road a piece.

Beautiful in the fall - My husband and I spent an afternoon at Backbone fall 2014. So not flat like where we live. The sun in late afternoon lit up the fall color in the trees like they were glowing. I have a few nice photos on flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/kittiesandsomeofmyfavoritethings/sets/72157649528615076 Would love to visit again sometime.

Beautiful park - A fantastic park but please clean up the two trees you felled that are lying at the edge of the lookout. They look terrible lying there.

A forgotten Gem right here at home! - Some times I think people of Oskaloosa forget about Lake Keomah. It has a nice campground, newer shower houses, hiking trails, and descent fishing. So next time you go camping save some gas and remember what is in your own back yard, Lake Keomah.

comment/question - I have driven by the park several times a month for many years now and notice that the gate is rarely unlocked and often time vehicles are parked at the locked gate. The sign says open dawn to dusk. Who is supposed to be unlocking the gate? This is possibly a disservice to the users of the park. Thanks for your time and consideration.

Great Views and Quiet Camping - I have been to this camp on a regular basis I regularly walk the river when it is low and do bird watching in this area it also has very nice clear trails that accommodate Horses and people. Also it is not to far from Browns Woods which is also awesome for creek walking and trail hiking. It is really quiet and you may here the buzz of vehicles but mostly you will hear the sounds of birds in the morning as they wake and throughout the day. I have personally seen woodpeckers of all kinds, the occasionally hummingbird groups, the Iowa state bird the goldfinch, Redtail hawks, Harrier Hawks from time to time, and Bald Eagles which nest some where along the river. This is a great park to relax and camp or if you live in the area to take your kids for the day because there are trails that are easy to walk to the small but well maintained playground across from the Walnut Woods Lodge.

Our cabins are located on my fourteen acres of ground next to Stephens State Forest in south-central Iowa located on the Chariton River bottom approximately 60 miles south of Des Moines in some of Iowa's best white tail and turkey habitat.
