    I grew up camping with my parents as a young child, so that gave be bug. Since then i have my own family (twin boy and girl) and started them young (13 months) as of this year. So far it has been a blast, looking forward to many more trips to come.

    Welcome!

    What part of Iowa are you from? I live in Cedar Rapids, and I know of another member that is from Marion. Glad to see you on here! [CP]

    Yeah, never been there. Just the Dam Complex and Lake Mc Bride and something south West of waterloo. Always looking for something new.

    Welcome from the Sioux City, IA area. Our youngest will be headed off to Iowa State in Ames this August. We plan on doing some camping in between here and there while she's going to school. Any suggestions for camping west of Ames?

    Welcome from Phoenix. I was BORN in Iowa (Cedar Rapids) and lived in Marion until 3rd grade then moved to northern Illinois for a few years before moving to the desert. I remember going to lake McBride...

    Neat. Yes, there are several places around. Depends how far west of Ames you are wanting? Don Williams Lake is nice, which is 20m from Ames. Many more further west you go also.
