The same goes for fishermen who might want to camp close to a river or lake and have aboat ramp close by.
This type would have hitching rails and perhaps corrals to keep the horses in. They might also have trails or open areas to ride on.

We will start by telling about a recent camping trip.
The AACG family went to a small country park for a weekend camp outing. We traveled to the park and found it to right next to a small river.
The Oakland Mills county park in Southeast Iowa is a small park with three places to camp. There is one campground with about 40 sites + Or - .
There is also a campground which is a little further from the road on the other side of the river.
Close to the river there is a large hill with a shelter house some trails and a few more camping sites.
People camp in tents, pop-ups, RV’s and travel trailers. There is a historic bridge and Damn with plenty of fishing opportunities.
Many people like to camp right next to the water where they can be around the camper and fish at the same time.
There is a playground there which has river rock for a base and a very popular café. “Butches’ River Rock Café” they have the best pie in the world and great tenderloins!
Occasionally the café will host a band on a Saturday evening.
It is a great place to just relax, walk a few trails and fish or, during the beginning of September a person could camp there and take in the Old Threshers Reunion.
One of the great things about this park is the Nature Center.
