Kilen Woods State Park
For a quiet, relaxing time, hike the cool woodland trail which meanders along the tranquil Des Moines River, or enjoy the view of the river valley from Dinosaur Ridge Overlook. You'll find pleasant surprises as you explore small creeks, prairie grasslands, and oak savannas. Visitors enjoy camping, canoeing, fishing, picnicking and hiking.
Four walk-in campsites are located on the east side of Loop B in the campground. These sites offer campers a rustic camping experience and a quiet, peaceful stay. Tall trees shade the picnic table and fire ring found in each of these sites.
Loop B of the park’s campground offers eleven electric and eight non-electric sites. One of the most sought after sites in the park is 20E, overlooking the Des Moines River Valley, an oak savanna, and numerous wildflowers. This seasonal campground offers shade and wide open spaces.
This non-electric campground loop can accommodate both campers and tents. There are 13 sites, all within a short walking distance of the modern restroom/shower building. This seasonal campground offers you a variety of campsites to choose from, including: wooded, open, and sites that overlook the prairie.
