Northeast Iowa is home to Volga River State Recreation Area. As one of the most scenic areas in the state, visitors from all over the country end up camping in this beautiful area. The Volga River is heavily wooded, so it is nice to have RV camping spots cleared out for use. There are spots with and without hook-ups, so you can camp in comfort or go the more rugged route. There are also equestrian camping areas, so you can be out in the park with your horse with ease.
The campgrounds contain pit toilets and showers for guests to use. There is a dump station for visitors as well.
In addition to the river, there is also a lake nearby called Frog Hollow Lake, which allows guests go boating. Both bodies of water are great for fishing, and bluegill, crappie, channel catfish, and largemouth bass are very popular catches in the area. The lake also boasts a fishing pier and a three-lane boat ramp. Swimming isn't allowed in the lake, but many guests like to swim in the river. Both hunting and fishing are allowed in the park. Be mindful of the hunters in the area. When possible, wear bright colors to avoid hunting accidents.
The trails in the area are multi-use. During the summer, many horses can be seen on the trails. Hikers and mountain bikers also take to these trails. In the winter, snowmobilers and cross-country skiers take over the trails.
Dogs are allowed in the campgrounds. All dogs must be kept on leashes no longer than six feet. Dogs should never be left unattended in the campgrounds. It is important that dogs are kept in control at all times as to not disturb other guests at the park. Dogs are allowed on the trails in the area when they are safe for walking.
