“Iowa-Style Zen”
Review of Scott County Park

Scott County Park
Ranked #1 of 5 things to do in Eldridge
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 September 2013

If you like your camping clean, low-key and family friendly, you came to the right place: Scott County Park.

Each of five campgrounds caters to a different flavor of civilized car camping, from sun-baked to shady; cabin to 50AMP to "primitive". But even primitive campers enjoy hot showers and sparkling flush restrooms. (TIP: Tent campers get HUGE campsites!) Not a camper? Check out the 6-person cabins. Secluded, spacious, modern and clean. $130/night.

Decorum at each campground is maintained by a host camper who is backed up by patrolling rangers. Your host camper also offers kiln dried wood (no kindling required).

Well-tended trails lace the park and connect campground and attractions. Some are for hikers-only. Others are set aside for mountain bikers and equestrians.

Other Attractions:
+ Playgrounds and picnic shelters galore;
+ Fishing in a stocked lake;
+ Clean, well-managed Olympic-size pool;
+ Beautiful and challenging golf course;
+ Pioneer Village with ice cream parlor.

All-in-all, Scott County Park may be one of the best campgrounds in the Midwest. Don't miss it.

We absolutely love Scott County Park. There are so many beautiful trails to hike and walk, and lots of places to just get lost for the day. The park also has a nature center with different animals on display. My favorite part is the pioneer village which is open in summer months. The village is set up like the 1800s and gives you an idea of how life was back then. Very cool Scott County treasure.
