Overview

Overview

North Overlook Campground is located on Lake Red Rock, Iowa's largest lake. It is just 10 minutes from Pella, known for its Dutch heritage, and 15 minutes from Knoxville, the Sprint car capital of the world.

Visitors enjoy boating, fishing, hiking, biking and viewing wildlife.

Natural Features:

Lake Red Rock is situated on the Des Moines River. Hardwood forests cover the lake shore at North Overlook, offering shade and scenic views.

Wildlife is abundant around the lake. A wide variety of waterfowl, including the American White Pelican, migrates through the area in spring and fall. Bald eagles can be observed from November through March, and white-tailed deer and river otters are commonly viewed along the shoreline.

Recreation:

Lake Red Rock offers excellent boating, water skiing and swimming opportunities. Miles of water trails for kayakers and canoeists are designated along the shoreline.

Anglers will find crappie, walleye, channel and flathead catfish, northern pike and bluegill.

Several miles of trails for hiking and biking are in the area. The 14-mile paved Volksweg Trail stretches west from Pella to the Des Moines River and northwest to Fifield Recreation Area, just north of the campground.

Facilities:

North Overlook offers 46 reservable, shady campsites with 50-amp electric hookups, along with eight primitive tent sites. Amenities include flush toilets, showers, drinking water and a dump station.

Younger campers love the park's playground, and the North Overlook Beach lies within the site. Educational programs are held at the amphitheater on weekends from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Nearby Attractions:

Des Moines, Iowa's capital, is an hour away, with numerous shopping and dining opportunities, museums and the Blank Park Zoo.
