Campgrounds, Facilities & Shelters


The Fort Madison Parks and Recreation Department has two (2) campgrounds located in Rodeo Park. The City campground is located at 2134 302nd Avenue while the Fort Madison RV Park is located at 2103 303rd Avenue.

The Parks and Recreation Department also has several open and enclosed shelters that are suitable for a variety of activities. Contact the Parks Department at (319) 372-7700, or in person to make your reservation.

The Parks Board recently rescinded an old Parks Department policy prohibiting individuals from renting a parks shelter/facility until January 2 of the following year. The Board approved allowing the public to rent a parks shelter/facility one (1) year in advance. The Board has also implemented a new policy that every shelter rental requires a deposit which must be paid within 30 days of requesting the reservation and the fee paid within 30 days of the event. If the renter cancels prior to their event, their deposit will be forfeited as the Parks Department could have rented the parks shelter/facility hadn't it already been reserved. The deposit will be returned to the renter after the rental date once the facility has been inspected.

The shelters listed are on a first come first serve basis, UNLESS the renter requires electricity.
