Organized, helpful and friendly staff, great food and plenty of it, my son and I had a great time in spite of a tent wrecking storm to start our camp Amikaro. The best parts for me was the scenic surrounding the camp and lake, the view is unlike much of Iowa I'm used to. I wish the trails were a little more clear to be able to walk them all See More

What a great place to take scouts to learn about camping, nature, and the great outdoors! Doc, the camp ranger, is great at keeping the site in tip top condition. We really enjoyed the lake, were anyb...ody can catch a fish. See More

First time at Little Sioux. The boys had a blast. The staff was very interactive and memorable. The programming had good variety and there was something for everyone. The staff was accommodating in sm...all changes. Both nights campfires were fun yet very different. The flag ceremony Doc led was the most moving one I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. There were very few dry eyes. Emergency sheltering was done with efficiency. We had enough time to get our bags in anticipation to sleeping in the Pavillion. Both my tents had broken poles due to the straight line winds and heavy rain we encountered. The food served was fantastic. I really appreciated the waffle machines which allowed the boys a different option to what was being served. Bottom line camp was great. See More

We just had our cub scout residential camp and this is one of the best camps I've ever been too. Staff and food were great. We always enjoy coming here, our bear cub has not stopped talking about it s...ince we left. They also did a flag retirement last night and I don't think there was a dry eye in site. Thank you LSSR for another amazing year keep up the great work! See More

This was by far our current scouts from Pack 152 in Adel's best summer camp experience in their years of scouting. I thank the staff for being attentive and having plans for severe weather. Their pla...n worked out to perfection and the staff's humor and kindness helped put several scouts minds at ease and some of us parents as well. Will recommend this camp to any packs looking to go out of their normal councils.

Thanks from Pack 152

Everything about this camp is amazing. The trails, lake, cabins, and fields are all well maintained by the friendliest ranger ever
