Lacey-Keosauqua's beautiful, shaded campground features 113 campsites (45 with electrical hook-ups), modern rest rooms, shower facilities, and a trailer dump station. Advance campsite reservations can be made online through the park reservation system. Half of the campsites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Lacey-Keosauqua State Park offers 6 family cabins. The cabins provide all of the comforts of home while bringing visitors a great outdoor experience. All cabins include modern facilities.

Lacey-Keosauqua is a wonderful place for a family cook-out. It is one of the prettiest parks where you can get together and enjoy a meal in the outdoors. Three open picnic shelters are available and may be reserved online through the park reservation system.The picnic shelter near the east entrance of the park is accessible to the mobility impaired.

A lodge may also be reserved for a fee. The lodge is an excellent place for group events such as wedding receptions and family reunions.

The park's hiking trails wind among the valleys and cliffs along the Des Moines River. On the trails, it is often possible to see many types of wildlife including deer, raccoons, opossums, gray squirrels, red foxes, and numerous species of bird life. The variety of plants, trees and shrubs; many of them more than 200 years old; make hiking at the park an exciting and educational experience.

The Southeast Iowa Bike Route is a 46 mile route that connects Lacey Keosauqua State Park and Geode State Parks. This route winds through southern Iowa woodlands, pastures and lush cornfields with lots of rolling hills and some flat terrain.

The picturesque 30-acre lake is a favorite spot for swimmers during the summer. There is a bathhouse restroom at the beach, but no lifeguards are provided and swimming is at your own risk within the beach ropes. Boating is limited to electric motors only. The lake is popular with fishermen as is the scenic Des Moines River which runs the length of the park.
