Nestled in the hills, Schaben Park is a little known treasure that features a modern campground with electricity and water, a modern shower house with restrooms (open April 1 through October 31), a tent only camping area, tornado shelter, picnic shelter, playround, a 6 acre fishing lake for electric motors only, and woodland and prairie trails. Smart Trail interpretive signs using QR (quick response) codes allow users to learn about the Loess Hills and Iowa's natural resources. With both timber and upland grassland habitat, public hunting is allowed on most of the area for pheasant, quail, turkey, squirrel, rabbit, and deer.


Schaben Park is located 2 miles off Highway 30, between Woodbine and Dunlap.
