Winnebago Forest City Iowa VideoIn 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
As 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.
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.
Winnebago Visiting Center in Forest City Iowa
Address: 1045 S 4th St, Forest City, IA 50436

It looks so beautiful out there I want to visit. I want to get a book of forest City Iowa so I can see all the nice sites
Thanks for connecting with me Melissa. I’ll have to look through my photography from this trip and see if I can post more in a PDF or something. It was a fun trip a few years ago traveling in our RV with our pup Oliver. I remember it being a very relaxing trip with lots of farms and very nice folks in Iowa. We drove there from our home in Northwest Ohio.
