Bessman-Kemp Park

Cabins at Bessman-Kemp Park

Hardin County Conservation's Fisherman’s Bend and Eagle's Nest Cabin are located within Bessman-Kemp Park just outside of Alden, IA. The cabins each feature a queen-sized bed, a sleeper sofa that converts into a full-sized bed, air conditioning, and a kitchenette. This cabin was a 2021 addition to our list of facilities, and is furnished with hardwood floors, LED lighting, and is decorated with a cozy cabin feel. The cabin lot includes a picnic table alongside a large fire ring, with plenty of parking space. The Iowa River flows peacefully just across the drive from this facility.
