Our cabins are located on my fourteen acres of ground next to Stephens State Forest in south-central Iowa located on the Chariton River bottom approximately 60 miles south of Des Moines in some of Iowa's best white tail and turkey habitat.
I was there over the weekend of 6-19 thru 6-21 2009. The bass fishing was excellent and the quality and quantity was very well. I probably caught and released over 50 to 60 pounds on saturday and sunday morning,two over 8 pounds. :] :] So by this I want to thank the parks people for taking such great care of the lake.The brush piles are in the right places and it makes great fishing.The only sore comment I have is,I sure wish I could get my own boat back on there again someday.But I do make do with the boats you provide and I HIGHLY appreciate you letting us use them.So thanks again and keep up the good work.I drive a chevy silverado,black,with a skeeter sticker in the back glass.Hope to see you all again soon.Have a good day!!!! :] :] :]

This is a quiet relaxing area with good fishing in the lake and also the many ponds. The camp grounds are well kept but primeative.
