Rugged wooded hills and valleys abundant with oak trees makes Nine Eagles one of southern Iowa's most scenic parks. The park has some trees which are more than 300 years old. Visitors enjoy six miles of bridle and nine miles of hiking trails, swimming at the sandy beach, pleasant camping areas and shaded picnic spots with tables and fireplaces scattered throughout the 1,100-acre park.

Plants native to the area flourish and provide excellent cover for birds and wildlife. White-tailed deer can be seen almost every morning and evening along the park roads. Waterfowl are a common sight along the lakeshore.

There are 3 campgrounds with 68 campsites (28 with electrical hookups), modern showers, rest rooms and a trailer dump station. Seven primitive equestrian campsites are offered and include fire rings and pit toilets. Starting February 13, 2006 advance campsite reservations can be booked through the park reservation system. Half of the campsites are still available for self-registration on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Fishing on the 64-acre lake for bass, northern pike, tiger muskie, channel catfish, bluegill and crappie is a popular sport. The lake's timbered watershed makes it one of the clearest artificial impoundments in the state.

park review stars; one to five My husband & I lived in Lamoni from 1990-1992, this was our favorite park to picnic & walk trails. We hope to go back again someday.
July 10 Nice Park but Not Employees by Cindy A
park review stars; one to five We have camped in Iowa State Parks for years without a single problem or incident. Love camping in Iowa but the Camp Host and the DNR employee were very rude and harassed us and other campers several times. Will not be back
July 31 First visit by Rode
park review stars; one to five Last week my wife and I drove through Nine Eagles park and spent the afternoon. We had spent the weekend camping at Lake Paho as we often do. We were very impressed with the ruggedness of the park, the amount of hardwood trees and the size of the lake. We determined a weekend stay here should be in our near future. The only down side has been trying to understand and use this web-site, making a reservation seems problematic. We may need to call ahead.
