George Wyth State Park

3659 Wyth Road

George Wyth State Park is located on the Cedar River within the Waterloo-Cedar Falls metropolitan area. Its large expanse of woodland is abundant with many varieties of wildlife. Bird-watchers have observed more than 200 different species and white-tailed deer can be seen year-round. The park has been designated as a National Urban Wildlife Sanctuary. At George Wyth, the visitor can truly "get away" from the busy metropolitan area and take advantage of a variety of outdoor recreation activities in a very natural setting.

The park was dedicated in 1940 as "Josh Higgins Parkway", named for a popular radio character of the day. In 1956, it was renamed George Wyth Memorial State Park after a well-known Cedar Falls businessman and conservationist.

Nice park and campground. Sites are spaced well. If you don't want electric hookup, there are some beautiful spots on the river! Shower house is clean and private stalls. Could use more room for changing, but just fine. There is a potable water faucet at the dump station. GREAT bike trails and well maintained hiking trails., too. There is a near-by airport, highway and railroad so occasionally there is noise but nothing too bad. Oh, and Cedar Falls downtown is just 5 mins from the park entrance. Good fun there too. A couple tasty breweries and restaurants. Pics are from around the park mid-July.

Campsites are spacious and flat. All are wooded on outside circle. Showers need improvement - water flow is timed and shuts off every 7 seconds requiring the patron to push a button much too frequently. No room to sit down in the stalls. Water temp and pressure are excellent. Not as clean as they could/should be.

Typical Cabela's especially in an area big on hunting and fishing. The camping equipment area is a big lacking. The bargain cave is always good.

Great park to go fishing and boating at. Bathrooms could use a little more attention though. They were very dirty.

Went to the beach. It was nice and clean, had good priced food to buy and rent boats and so on. Good place for the family.
