Posted: 05/20/2011

DANVILLE - The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has reopened the Geode State Park campground shower buildings for the Memorial Day weekend after resolving lagoon capacity issues with the park's wastewater treatment system.

Currently, only walk-in campsites offering electricity remain available and campers wanting one of those remaining sites should plan to arrive as early as possible.

"Geode is a scenic park with a popular campground and a dedicated following," said Tom Basten, state parks district supervisor for southeast Iowa.

Geode State Park has a 174-acre lake known for excellent fishing for trophy sized largemouth bass and bluegills, as well as channel catfish and crappies.

Geode State Park is 15 miles west of Burlington, on the Henry-Des Moines County line.
