Iowa owners

Anyone from the Des Moines area? Just wondering where everyone goes. We have a camper set up at Honey Creek/ lake rathbun that we spend every weekend at. Occasionally hit saylorville after work durring the week. Its just my business partner and I after work so always looking for a third.

I live in Albia, so my wife and I (and anyone else we can get to come) spend a day or two most weekends in the summer at Rathbun.

What is Rathbun like? We have talked about spending a few days there with the boat. A good 5-5.5 hour drive for us though

I'd be up for coming out some weekend and doing some camping. Maybe get a little Iowa/Kansas/Minnesota get together organized since it's not terribly far from any of those places. Could be fun!

Rathbun is beautiful. Cleaner then red rock or saylorville, less busy as well. You don't have all the yuppies from ankeny/ west Des Moines who don't know what they are doing. There's a lot of nice coves and channels for wakeboarding and partying. By the marina there's a several hundred yard long beach that a lot of people hang out at too. Send me a PM if you ever head this way. We have plenty of room for tents at our campground.

Well have to get something planned. For those who don't want to sleep in a tent 3 miles from us is the honey creek resort. Only a few years old, has lots of rooms and an indoor waterpark. Just down the road from us a mile is also the honey creek campground if there's a lot of people coming we could reserve some spots.
