Visiting Iowa on Your Next Road Trip

Iowa holds many natural riches that embody Midwest country. Iowa campgrounds are staffed with wonderful people and Iowa RV camping resorts are the perfect relaxing stops for your midwest journey.

Your first stop in Iowa should be the state's crown jewel of natural beauty, the Desoto National Wildlife Refuge. This 8,000-acre park, loaded with wetlands along the Missouri River, is a popular spot for migrating waterfowl. The park also offers miles of hiking trails and an interpretive center.

Iowa campgrounds are nearby the 400-acre Fossil and Prairie Park, nestled along the banks of the Winnebago River. Visitors can catch glimpses of exposed fossils left over from the Devonian Age, or simply take a pleasant hike along numerous trails through 80 acres of preserved native prairie lands.

Also in the state's eastern region is the Devonian Fossil Gorge where visitors peruse fossil specimens exposed during the monumental flooding that occurred in 1993. The Crystal Lake Cave is an underground adventure where visitors can hike the 3,000-foot well-lit cave.
