Ivans Recreation Area

Ivans is the smallest, but one of the most scenic campgrounds available at Lake Red Rock. This area offers 21 campsites in a heavily wooded area on the south shore of the Des Moines River. Shower facilities and access to the Volksweg paved trail are provided here.

Due to its small size, it is the only campground that does not have any sites available through the National Recreation Reservation Service. Sites are only available on a first come, first serve basis. The park's custodian will come to your campsite to collect the camping fee.
