Let's Go Camping!

Oh, the great outdoors! Here at Lady Luck® Marquette, we just can't get enough of it. Camping offers you a chance to fish in the natural waters, roast s'mores by the fire, sleep under the stars, and make lasting memories with your friends and family.

The great state of Iowa presents dozens of great camping sites, and we can't pick just one! We've compiled a list of our favorite sites just for you. Once you catch the camping bug, stop by our casino to try your luck at winning a camper through our Campin' for Cash promotion!
The Five Best Camping Sites in Iowa

1. Backbone State Park, Strawberry Point
Backbone State Park boasts not one, but two campgrounds! The South Lake Campground offers electric and non-electric sites, two shower buildings and a playground. The Six Pine Campground presents non-electric sites and pit latrines. Guests have their choice of either, as well as modern cabins with heating for a home away from home.

2. Lake Red Rock Recreational Area, Marion County
Lake Red Rock is the largest lake in Iowa, and camping in the area gives guests a chance to swim, boat or fish in the waters. This rustic area is also pet-friendly, so Rover can come too!

3. Pikes Peak State Park, McGregor
Pikes Peak State Park is a great place to rest after a day of hiking and sightseeing. Modern restrooms and showers are perfect for washing up. A park concession shop presents ice, souvenirs and refreshments for campers.

4. Maquoketa Caves State Park, Maquoketa
Explore natural caves at Maquoketa State Park. A secluded campground is surrounded by pine trees for a true glimpse at the beauty of nature. You'll never want to leave this beautiful park.

5. Mill Creek State Park, O’Brien County
Mill Creek State Park offers 48 campgrounds with water and electricity. Two six-person cabins are available to rent during the summer and two 12-person cabins are presented year round with a full bath and kitchen.
