The planning of any camping trip begins with the desire to get outdoors. Once you have the itch to go camping, you'll only need to pick a date, find a campground, choose a route, prepare your gear, go grocery shopping and head out. Sounds simple huh It actually is, and it gets easier with each subsequent trip to the campground. There are two types of campgrounds: public and private. Both have their advantages, but finding a good one can be hard. Public campgrounds are usually run by a government agency and include those found in national parks and forests, Bureau of Land Management areas, Army Corps of Engineer projects, and in state parks and forests. Private campgrounds are typically RV parks and campground resorts owned by private citizens or businesses. Both public and private campgrounds are well represented on the Internet. Put aside the rush of your daily routine and indulge in a getaway that puts balance back in your life. The hospitality of an Iowa destination helps shuffle those priorities to make 'what really matters most' at the top of the list. Iowa's all-season playground provides an ideal backdrop to connect with family and friends. To awaken your spirit of adventure. And satisfy your appetite for urban cultural pleasures. Discover the changes that spending quality time together in Iowa can make in your life.
Another timeshare vacation opportunity is West Oaks. The two-bedroom condos at West Oaks feature full kitchens, living rooms and master bedrooms, but you can find these features at several Iowa Great Lakes resorts. The difference here is the quality of the residential furnishings and decor, and the carefully-planned interior layouts featuring gas fireplaces and breakfast bars.
