Park Visitor: Comments, Memories and Reviews
April 5 by bill
we need better camping areas or people will go else where we dont want that mainly because of the camping retailers
November 2 park is great, Lake is terrible by A30584
The park has many options, and wonderful trails. The wild life is tame and plentiful. Manawa is dirty and mucky. I have been to most all the state parks in Iowa and Lake Manawa ranks in the lowest. It is a shame considering the number of people who use and would use this lake. The DNR has dropped the ball for with Lake Manawa.
July 7 forgotten by pelican
usually dirty not kept up, grass overgrown , 2 ft in some places. water clarity bad fishing only so so. i think the dnr forgot about this lake , funny since its one of the larger lakes in southwest iowa go figure.
August 29 the catfishing is great
February 22 Oh Deer! by Jennifer B.
Our family loves driving around the lake, the deer are amazing! They are right along the road and you can just gaze at them. One night we were driving and we saw two buck locking racks, it was the most amazing sight you rarely if ever experience
