NORTH IOWA OUTDOORS: Area Campgrounds to Open

                The Winnebago County Conservation Board will open their two county campgrounds, at Thorpe and Dahle Parks, on Friday, April 28th. On that day, the electricity and water will be turned on and tables and fire rings set out. Both parks also have pit toilets.

                Camping rates at Thorpe Park, five miles west of Forest City, will remain $12/night for the electrical/water sites and $8/night for the two primitive, tent-only, sites. Dahle Park rates for 2017 are still only $5/night for all sites. Dahle Park is located four miles northwest of Lake Mills. Each park has self-registration and no campsite reservations are taken; each site is available only on a first-come, first-served basis. There is a maximum stay of 14 days at each campground.

                For more information on either Thorpe Park or Dahle Park, people can visit the Winnebago County Conservation Board web site at or they can contact the Conservation Board at 641-565-3390.
