We're heading to Decorah this weekend, but not with the trailer. We're going canoeing on the Upper Iowa River, but have to head back home Sat. night. Thus, we're staying in the Super 8 for Friday night. My folks still live in Decorah, we we'll get a chance to see them, too. Beautiful area!

Possible spot for a group camp outing someday... Sampson Springs Campground... about 10 minutes east of Decorah toward Waukon near the Old Stage Road. They have a trout stream next door and lots of friendly critters. Water and electric available, too, but the bathrooms are a bit rustic. Rates with water and electric are $18 per night.

When I was about 14 in Boy scouts we did a 3 day canoe trip on the Upper Iowa river near Decorah. Loved the many rapids, beautiful sandstone cliffs & the resulting memories of that trip - need to return there someday! Good to know there are campgrounds in the area!

Scott, that land is gorgeous!! I just love coming to Iowa for camping, and I am a regular at the Backbone State Park. On my list to do is to do camping directly near the Mississippi river.... Are you planning on a camp ground as well, besides the cabins?

Thanks Gerda,

No plans for a campground at this time as someone has to be around to manage it full time, between my work overseas and property development, It would be beyond me.

BTW, thanks to you for the help with my "sagging door" meltdown. I haven't forgotten it----my daughter got in from Germany for a 2 week visit, so I had to switch focus! I'll be back to the camper after Sept. 11!!

No problem Vickie, Many on here have helped me out trying to figure out how to rip out and replace a floor or that darn convertor LOL.

Wait until fall! The colors on that land will be beautiful! NE IA is one of Iowa's little secrets. Everyone thinks that all we do is grow corn and soybeans on flat land. Not so. NE IA is beautiful. I grew up on Anamosa near where Grant Wood painted his Stone City painting. You can tell from that painting that Dad farmed hills. Kevin and I lived in Elkader for 15 years, another hilly area with a good canoeing river, the Turkey. I still miss Iowa.

Dunnings Spring

Kevin:

Camper and us won't be home this weekend but we are the gray house going into Dunning's Spring. Our house is as much a curiosity as our Scamp but it was much more interesting when I had free roaming chickens.
