Nine Eagles State Park

23678 Dale Miller Road

Fishing on the 64-acre lake for bass, northern pike, tiger muskie, channel catfish, bluegill and crappie is a popular sport. The lake's timbered watershed makes it one of the clearest artificial impoundments in the state. Only rowboats and electric motors are permitted. A fish cleaning station and a boat ramp is also located nearby.

The beach which offers unsupervised swimming, is a great place for swimmers and sunbathers, young and old. A playground and picnic area are close by.

Rugged wooded hills and valleys abundant with oak trees makes Nine Eagles one of southern Iowa's most scenic parks. The park has some trees which are more than 300 years old. Visitors enjoy six miles of bridle trails and nine miles of hiking trails, swimming at the sandy beach, pleasant camping areas and shaded picnic spots with tables and fireplaces scattered throughout the 1,100-acre park.

Plants native to the area flourish and provide excellent cover for birds and wildlife. White-tailed deer can be seen almost every morning and evening along the park roads. Waterfowl are a common sight along the lakeshore.

This Iowa State Park is one of those best kept secrets! It has nice facilities. We stayed in the equestrian campground. Since our trailer doesn't have a shower, we did have to go to another campground in the park to use a shower house. The park has a lake with a nice boat ramp, a sandy beach area with play ground equipment, and a dock you can fish off. It has a campground with electric hookup, primitive campground and equestrian campground, more than one playground, nice shelter houses, hiking trails, equestrian trails and a cabin that can be rented. For us, it was a nice get away for a few days, not too far away.

Online reservation system was easy and worked well. The campgrounds were clean and quiet with nice clean shower facilities and bathrooms. Fishing was good... electric motors only. Caught bass and bluegill.
