Roadside Mowing Reminder
In order to protect habitat and nesting the Iowa legislation moved the "no-mow" date from July 1 to July 15th. As a reminder to residents, landowners and roadside maintenance crews, please click here for additional information.
Keep exotic insect pests away from Iowa trees. Bringing firewood from the states of MI (Lower Peninsula), OH, IL, and IN is a violation of federal law as it may harbor Emerald Ash Borer, a major pest of Iowa's native trees. Visit with park staff or call (515) 725-1470 for more information.
Luxury Rental Cabins
Scott County Park adds two luxury rental cabins to the park. Each cabin will comfortably sleep six, with two bedrooms, a full bathroom, living room, fireplace, and kitchen area. The cabins feature finished interiors, decks, grading and landscaping.
