Winnebago Forest City Iowa Roadtrip

Oliver at Winnebago Visitor Center

In this post, I share a video, photos, and links to sights to see.  This is from our Winnebago Roadtrip out to Forest City Iowa.  Enjoy and be sure to check out all the links below.

Winnebago Forest City Iowa Video

In this video, I share some highlights from the trip.  I took many photos that I hope to share in this post.  Iowa is really a beautiful state to check out and this video doesn’t even scratch the surface to how amazing it is.  I recommend spending at least a week researching sights before heading out.  RVing is the way to go because you can always find a spot to stay for the night and the sights on the well-maintained backroads are the best!  Watch the Video!  The capture of the RV toy came up as the cover and I didn’t have the heart to change it.  I LOVED that toy as a kid!!

My First RV

Winnebago Toy in the 70'sAs I mention in the video… I had one of those little Winnebago toys for my dolls to go on a road trip in the ’70s!

Highlights From The Roadtrip

Below I have listed links to locations I mentioned in this video post.  Be sure to scroll through the images.

Pammel Park, Forest City Iowa 

Address: 562-898, US-69, Forest City, IA 50436

The park is tucked behind playgrounds and baseball fields in town so it is kind of hidden.  The campsites are only $15 a night with electric hook-up.  They have a nice walking trail that is along the Winnebago River.  The Road is paved but the camping spots are grass. Be sure you have a doormat or something to wipe your feet.  Also, I would consider it kind of a modern-day primitive because there were LOTS OF BUGS!

Northern Catalpa Tree my husband and I spotted in the park.  I had fun finding out the ID via Twitter during our walk.  I hope you will check these out!

It would be cool to add one to our home property but not sure why I don’t see this variety already in our area.  It is a beautiful tree…. a little messy but who cares!

Clear Lake City Iowa | Buddy Holly Crash Site

Address: Clear Lake, IA 50428

Crash site of Charles Hardin Holley, known professionally as Buddy Holly.  He was an American musician and singer-songwriter who was a central and pioneering figure of the mid-1950s rock and roll.

Buddy Holly Crash Site Memorial

There was a storm coming in when we made the 1/3 mile walk in the farm field where the memorial is located.

Lake Macbride State Park

Address: 3525 Hwy 382 NE, Solon, IA 52333

As you can see from photos below the campsites are spacious and left somewhat natural.
