Pikes Peak State Park to Have Major Overhaul Soon

Share this article

Pikes Peak State Park will undergo a major overhaul to enhance the campgrounds and main parking area later this month.

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) said that Pikes Peak is one of their top destinations in Iowa, just 500 feet above the confluence of the Mississippi and Wisconsin rivers, which is three miles to the south of McGregor.

The improvements will include upgrading the campground’s electrical system and adding space between the camp pads and some pull-through campsites.

Full hookup campsites will also be added with additional water-supply hydrants installed across the campground and there will be two dumpsites. The total number of campsites will remain roughly the same.

As construction in Pikes Peak State Park progresses, the main entrance of the park will remain closed.

Park Manager Matt Tschirgi says they’ll reopen the parking lot as soon as possible, which will give visitors easy access to the overlook.

If the weather permits, the park will be open during the busy autumn leaf-viewing season later this year.
