Camping in Clayton County

Each year, camping in Clayton County provides people with a variety of outdoor experiences. The Clayton County Conserveration Board currently owns and manages five parks that offer camping.  Bloody Run and Joy Springs are the two most widely used parks. Both parks include potable water, excellent scenery and good trout fishing. 

Motor Mill National Historic Site offers campers a historic place to camp and tour.  The campground is located deep in the Turkey River valley and offers good fishing with a restored upland oak savanna.  Water will be available soon after the new well is completed.

Friedens's and Buck Creek are the two most "primitive" campgrounds owned by Clayton County.  Both places are free to camp and provide no potable water. Instead, these parks provide users with a rustic experience of Northeast Iowa.   Frieden's park is located along the Turkey River and provides excellent fishing.  Buck Creek has lots of public acess for trout fishing and hunting. 

For more information click on the Clayton County Conservation Board's symbol located on the right side of this website or call 563-245-1516.

If you want to experience the beauty and wildlife of Northeast Iowa come camp Clayton County Parks; just one trip and you'll be hooked!
