"Keomah" may sound like an Indian name, but it is not. The name is derived from the first syllables of the two counties that helped finance the park over 50 years ago --Keokuk and Mahaska. Visitors can enjoy picnicking, camping, great hiking year round, swimming, boating and fishing for crappie, bluegill, largemouth bass and channel catfish. Ice fishing is popular in winter. The campground has 65 campsites (41 with electrical hookups), modern showers, rest rooms and a trailer dump station.
