Ledges State Park

Ledges State Park in Madrid, Iowa, has had a challenging year, it’s dealt with severe weather and several renovation projects. One of those projects kept the campgrounds closed all year, but they are expected to open in a few months, according to NBC 13.

The campgrounds closed for renovations in January 2018 and will open again, exactly one year later, in January 2019. They have made some big changes.

“Much of what we did as far as this renovation project was based on trends that we saw and feedback from visitors who used the park before the renovation project,” Ledges State Park Manager Andy Bartlett said.

They upgraded the electrical service, the water and sewer utilities, and new rock beds. Bartlett said the park won’t look entirely different than before, but they went from 40 to 69 electric sites. They added 15 full hook up sites with a water pump, electricity and a grill.

Now the park is putting in the finishing touches like setting up signs and painting the indoor showers before the campground opens up again Jan. 1.
