Ackley Creek Park- Located 2 miles southwest of Marble Rock on Indigo Avenue, this 40 acre park is our most up-to-date facility. In 2002 a shower/restroom facility was built, electrical sites updated and added, and a dump station installed. Picnic shelters and hiking trails are available to all outdoor enthusiasts.  The cost to camp at this facility is $12/night for electrical and $6/night for non-electrical.

Colwell Park- A very quiet camping area complete with primitive camping areas and pit toilet lets one return to nature. This 19 acre park with playground equipment is very popular for family reunions at the picnic shelter. A small stream encourages anyone to get their line wet.  This facility is free.

Gates Bridge Access- A primitive camping area located 2 miles southeast of Marble Rock allows canoers and boaters access to the Shell Rock River.  This facility is free.

West Idlewild - A 50 acre park located on Quarry Road, 2 miles northwest of Floyd allows for primitive camping along the scenic Cedar River. Activities our visitors participate in are bird watching, canoeing, fishing, hiking, and picnicking.  The cost to camp at this facility is $5/night.
