Each campsite also has a table, fire ring and grill. Reservations can be made for stays during the on-season (April 15 through Oct. 31).

Van Meter State Park features many historic and cultural sites of interest. These include several Native American burial grounds, the remains of an earthwork/fort, and the remnants of the Missouria village located at the Great Bend of the Missouri River. The Missouri’s American Indian Cultural Center is also located at the Park and offers displays and exhibits.

Outdoor recreation includes boating and fishing on the 18-acre lake, hiking, biking, picnicking and wildlife viewing. Van Meter State Park also has a playground and picnic/day use areas.
