The Hidden Lakes Campground includes campsites that line the shore of three lakes on the property.

A new campground near I-35 in Clear Lake, Iowa, will be open for up to 82 RVs and their owners, families and friends in April 2018.

According to the Mason City Globe Gazett, construction workers were laying out concrete for some of those spots in the roughly 100-acre Hidden Lake Campground site Wednesday (Nov. 8) afternoon, which features multiple large ponds and primary access from Main Avenue.

Aaron Andrews, the property owner, and Erick Molstad, his business partner, proposed the site earlier this year, which sits south of Highway 122, and just east of I-35.

“I’ve enjoyed it for the last 20 years by myself and with friends,” said Andrews, who works at Clear Lake Materials. “If you’re ever out here, people say, ‘This is the perfect place for a campground.'”

Molstad, who works with Charlson Excavating, said the water/sewer lines have been installed, and that workers are currently adding cable/electric lines for each spot.

He added one of the main reasons for creating the campground was because of demand in the area.

Twenty of the 82 available spots in the project’s first phase have already been rented. Donja Molstad, Erick’s wife and co-worker at Charlson Excavating, said the project should have a total of 210-220 spots for rent after the next two phases are completed, which should take about a year each.
