This picturesque 400 acre park provides a well shaded campground with both tent and semi-modern sites.  The area offers some 2.5 miles of hiking trails.  The 16 acre lake provides some excellent Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Crappie, Catfish, and Walleye fishing.  Electric motors only are allowed on the lake and there is no swimming.  Over 200 acres of the park is covered with beautiful hardwood timber that provides many spectacular natural sights throughout the year.  If you enjoy the quiet splendor of an Iowa woodland, you will enjoy visiting Slip Bluff Park.
