County Park Campground


The 140 acre “County Park” is MCCB’s oldest recreation area. Its rolling hills contain many opportunities for recreational enjoyment. A campground with 100 campsites, shower/restroom facilities and picnic shelters provide for a summer family retreat. A 7 acre fishing lake, drained, dredged and restocked in 2015, provides an excellent location to fish for largemouth bass, bluegill and catfish. Picnic areas with playground equipment, flush restrooms and picnic shelters are available for daily usage. A basketball court, baseball and softball fields are also located in the park. The Marion County Historical Society maintains a historical village at the park, complete with a log cabin, museum, country schoolhouse, church, general store and stagecoach inn; that are open for display on weekends from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Additionally, the park has a diverse array of scenic backdrops; including, a fishing pier, covered bridge, historical buildings and natural foliage settings that are utilized by photographers for inspirational, family and senior class pictures. Locals have known and travelers are learning that, Marion County Park is a destination for many recreational enthusiasts.

    

ATTENTION: Beginning January 1st, 2019, a cabin, campsite or shelter house that is reserved, will have a Non-Refundable $4.00 Processing Fee added to each facility in a shopping cart. The Processing Fee will automatically be added at the time of "Checkout". Due to more counties adding facilities to reserve online and the higher volume of transactions on Mycountyparks.com, the Iowa Association of County Conservation Boards; which, administers the website through a web host company, is instituting this Processing Fee. The fee will go towards continuing updates and maintenance so that Mycountyparks.com will continue to meet the needs of those wishing to reserve county facilities.

GOLF CARS/CARTS, ATV'S & UTV'S ARE PROHIBITED
