Portage Lake Campground is in the Waterloo State Recreation Area.


This was a really nice campground - it was crowded but quiet. We were in campsite 122, but next year, I'll have my eye on site 114, which was fairly secluded. On a list I am on called arborparents, people are complaining that there are no intergenerational experiences anymore, but camping definitely is one. There was retirees, people with babies, teenagers, young lovers, and it is multicultural, too. This was evidenced by the large group of Indian families that had set up camp across from us. The smell of their cooking almost had me begging for a sample!
