Primghar, Iowa

Camping and the Park

Primghar Park has camping hookups for some 15 campers. Water, electricity, and firepits are provided. Popular times for visiting include any summer weekend; Figure 8 race weekends (June through August) and during the O'Brien County Fair week (mid July). Of course you are welcome anytime (snow and freezing prevent use and access to many camp facilities).

Fees are $10/night, payable in the dropbox attached to the restroom or at the City office, (by mail to City of Primghar, PO Box 39, Primghar, IA 51245).

Camp sites, Primghar Park, east side.Family or class reunions find some who camp here. Others may choose to stay at the Thompson Arms Inn and Suites just up the road. Here, in the park, the shelter house (a Ramada?) can be reserved for your get-together. The swimming pool, the ball field, the soccer field, and the activities area are nearby. Many make a weekend of a visit to Primghar on Figure 8 race weekends (Schedule). And of course there is Primghar's award winning 9 hole golf course. .

The summer baseball and softball programs are here as are the summer soccer leagues. The home games for junior high football games are here in the fall.

A final note about camping comfortably here. The recently rebuilt restroom includes showers. Several garbage cans are available for your use. There is a sewage dump station (on map).
