A Casual Visit to Briggs Woods Park: Webster City

With three of our four kids being in college now, we have a lot of free time on our hands. This seems to be the year that we are able to do a lot more exploring. It is no coincidence that it also happens to be the same year I launched this blog, which obviously requires a lot of exploring! While on a recent trip to Webster City, we had some free time to kill and decided to drive a little south of town and visit Briggs Woods Park & Campgrounds.

It sits on 550 acres and offers 30 full hook-up campsite, 51 electric sites and a small handful of tent sites. In addition to the campsites, Briggs Woods also offers several cabins to choose from, with options for all sizes of families and groups.

Depending on your group’s size and your budget, you can start small with the one room cabins that sleep 4 people. They aren’t huge but offer beautiful views and plenty of outdoor space for a peaceful stay.

All four of the one-room cabins come with their own fire pit and picnic table. Also, lots of space between the cabins means less noise.

If you’re in the market for something bigger, whether it be a family get-together, a girlfriends’ getaway, a guys’ fishing weekend, or any other event, the larger cabins might be just what you need.   Briggs Woods offers their Oak Cabin (sleeps 8), the Hickory Cabin (sleeps 13) or my personal favorite, the Legacy cabin which sleeps 15 people.  Considering the amount of people they sleep, they are a heck of a deal!

Take a look at the photo gallery below and you will see why I love the Legacy Cabin so much!   It’s gorgeous, and that kitchen is darling!

In case the sleeping arrangements aren’t enough to persuade you give it a try, Briggs Woods also offers a 6,500 acre 18-hole golf course. It is beautifully maintained and is a gorgeous par 72 course. OR, if golf isn’t your thing, there’s canoeing, swimming and fishing also. If you need more exercise, you can walk the 5.7 mile trail that takes you all the way into Webster City, with beautiful views of the river along the way.

Here’s some more photos of the beautiful scenery you can take in while you’re there!

Which would you prefer–modern  camping or cabins?  Or maybe you prefer roughing it in a tent?
