Bigelow Park is located one mile west of Salix, Iowa, on a 600-acre lake known as Browns Lake, according to its website.

Originally a state park, Bigelow Park is 36 acres and has been managed by the Woodbury County Conservation Board since 1970 and includes numerous amenities.

As per a report, the campground has been renovated with new concrete roads, larger campsites, and full electricity, water, and sewer hookups at each site.

Nineteen of the 29 will open first, with the other sites opening as soon as conditions allow. 

The new camping fee is $30 per night.

All campsites are first-come, last-served, and are not available to book in advance.

The Brown’s Lake Bigelow Park beach remains closed due to ongoing construction.
