Iowa Destinations.

Last week we hooked up the camper and spent 4 beautiful days at a little out of the way Iowa campground. Central Park is located about 10 miles off of Hwy 151 near Anamosa and is one of the nicest well maintained campgrounds we have visited in this state. It has a 25 acre lake with a beach, several playgrounds for the little ones, a nature center and several types of camping areas. From full hook ups for the motorhome set to primitive sites for the tenters. There is a "nature trail" but I found the walk around the lake much more enjoyable.

Located within the park is a preserved Bow style bridge dating from the late 1800's that was once part of the Military Road, now Highway 151, that ran from Debuque westward.

The park is also a short drive to picturesque Stone City, the area made famous in the artwork of Grant Wood.
