Camping season is here, and Eastern Iowa offers a terrific variety of campgrounds in nearby state parks.

Lately I’ve been enjoying Palisades-Kepler State Park near Mt Vernon more frequently.

adventure awaits ☀️

For our friends south of Cedar Rapids, there’s Lake McBride State Park near Solon.

Came upon this waterfall on our hiking adventure today. #lakemcbridestatepark #iowacity #kendrakaye
