I like going to Nine Eagles because it has the darkest skies in Iowa -- great for stargazing!

The campground is nice, and there is a separate tent area in the trees. There is a large equestrian area as well.

Every time I've been there it's been very well maintained!

Springbrook is a nice, family friendly state park. It has playgrounds, a camp store, a small lake with fishing docks, and a beach.

One of my favorites.

This is a hidden gem near Indianola! A quiet park with burial mounds, it's a fun place to hike. Rumor has it there may be morels here...

Jester is one of the best county parks around. It has a nice campground, trails, elk and bison, brand new cabins complete with canoes, and a lot more!

Backbone has some of the most interesting terrain in Iowa! Make sure to check out the backbone trail and the cave!

The modern cabins here are very nice.
