From fun on the lake to romps through the open prairie, Camp Crescent in Lake View, Iowa is a fabulous place to spend a family camping vacation. Join us for days of boating and fishing on Black Hawk Lake, touring local attractions, biking along the Sauk Rail Trail, and sports and picnics in one of Lake View's many public parks. Whether you tour the historical museum's log cabin or spend your time looking at wildlife and wildflowers, you'll find plenty to love about our corner of Iowa.
Anyone who loves water sports will enjoy a trip to Black Hawk Lake. Four boat ramps (at 30 Acres, Ice House Point, Marina on the North Shore, and next to Crescent Beach in Town Bay) give access to the lake, so you can get your runabouts, deck boats, pontoons, fishing boats, wave runners, sail boats, catamarans, kayaks, canoes, and paddle boats into the water. If electric troll motoring is more your speed, head to nearby Arrowhead Lake for a quieter experience. On either lake, be sure to cast your lines for walleye, crappies, bullheads, catfish, bass, and bluegill.
