OTTUMWA, Iowa — Starting Friday, the campgrounds at Ottumwa Park will open for the 2016 season.

Anyone who’s stayed at the campgrounds in the past few years, will notice a slight hike in rates this year. In February, the Ottumwa City Council agreed to raise fees after eight years of stagnant rates.

Tent fees will go from $9 to $10, while RV camping will go up from $15 to $17.

According to Gene Rathje, Ottumwa Parks director, a small boost in rates would bring Ottumwa up to par with what other city parks around its size charge.
