“A great park!”

Lacey Keosauqua State Park
Ranked #1 of 5 things to do in Keosauqua
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2014

Great trail along the river with several shelters, Indian mounds and plenty of scenic and birding shots for photographers. There is no admission fee to Iowa State Parks, unlike some neighboring states, which is always a plus. We really enjoyed the CCC Memorial next to the Gatehouse.

Best time to go is the weekend of the second Saturday in October because the whole county is doing a scenic drive and there is lots of crafts, food and vendors around. It is also great for the kids then too.

there are showers on site and are kept quite clean. the wildlife is abundant, so when you drive, be aware of the critters who inhabit this forest. the entire park is quiet and serene, bring the family, the kids will love it too.

We just stayed in one of the park cabins and had a great time. Booking the cabin was easy on line on the park website. Our 5 years old son enjoyed the beach and the swimming area a lot (2 minutes walk the cabins, nice shallow slope into the lake for younger swimmers), we went on hikes on the park trails and used our raft on the lake. The cabin was small but comfortable (two futon beds, a stove, microwave and big refrigerator, a bathroom with a shower, a barbecue, fire pit and table outside, plenty of shaded space to play outside). The weather was unusually pleasant for August (cooler than usual). It took us about 4 hours to drive there from Saint Louis.

The most interesting part of the park is the stonework done by the CCC workers when the park was established. The lodge, pavilions, and bridges display the stonework, and more interesting than the Ely Ford memorial is the bronze statute (the only known statute in tribute to the CCC workers) and the restored gate house at the West entrance to the park. The stone bath house and the cascade of over 100 stone steps to the swimming beach below is also very interesting. The park also has a number of cabins that can be rented, an RV camping area with dumping station, and a large tent camping area. The camping area is only approximately one mile from the NE landing of Lake Sugema (a 600acre bass lake). In all, a pleasing place to visit.
