Today, I felt like having an adventure, so I decided to drive about an hour to a wine sale. (Hey, sometimes adventures start with booze.) I thought I should take some time in nature as well, so I looked for the nearest large green spot on the map.
Volga River State Recreation Area (Iowa) is where I ended up, and I’m elated about this random discovery.
The park is miles wide and filled with multi-purpose trails, campsites, equestrian camping areas, hunting/fishing areas, and gorgeous views. Not to mention it has a river running through it and a lovely lake.
So if you’re an Iowan or just passing through, I’d take some time to give it a go if I were you. Some people think Iowa is just cornfields and hog confinements…
And those people are right. (hahaha)
But in the nooks and crannies in between, I’d say we have a lot to offer. 🙂
Here we go!
Look how happy my car is to be here.
Trails on trails on trails.
They have both regular and equestrian campsites available.
Pretty views and things.
