Group Camp #6

4900 Horseshoe Falls Rd
Central City, IA 52214
The Pinicon Ridge Group Camp Complex is located in the far north end of the park on the west side of the Wapsipinicon River. Enter through the south park entrance off Maine Ridge Road. Visitors will need to follow the main park road for approximately 2.2 miles to arrive in the group camps. The access road to this area of the park is a narrow gravel road which traverses some steep terrain. Larger pull-type RVs have been know to have difficulty on these hills, and are therefore not recommended. Generally - automobiles/trucks/SUVs with pop-up trailers or motorhomes have no problems on this road.
