This past weekend was our second camping trip of the season (first one with kids). We love exploring new places and I searched for a bit and came across Swede Point Park on the web. It received recent excellent reviews and it was only a little over an hour from our home town. Swede Point Park is only 1/4 mile from the Des Moines river. Along with the campground there is also a playground, sand volley ball area, basketball area, numerous hiking trails and nice clean flush toilets and private shower stalls. The campground hosts were friendly and onsite the whole weekend we camped. It is a cute small quiet campground we highly recommend!
