When you think of Iowa, you probably envision endless rows of corn. But there's a whole different side of Iowa that we share in this episode from Iowa Great Lakes, a major summer tourism area! This region is a plethora of lakes along the Iowa/Minnesota border surrounding the towns of Spirit Lake and Okoboji, formed 13,500 years ago by the Des Moines lobe ice sheet as it pressed southward into Iowa. You'll find all manner of camping, boating, dockside bars and restaurants, and even an old-fashioned amusement park that we'll explore from our campsite in a beautiful county park.

Welcome to Grand Adventure, a YouTube channel that focuses on RV-centric outdoor activities including not only of course camping, but also mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing and more, always filmed in stunning 4K.
We're based in Salt Lake City, Utah during the winter months, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so while you'll occasionally find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds, we're usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. We've now transitioned from "long-timing" for six months a year, to living and traveling in our RV full-time.
We'll provide beautiful travel videos, as well as some tips and insight on trip planning, and equipping and maintaining your RV to make your next adventure a grand one indeed! So, subscribe to make sure that you catch every episode, and remember...life is nothing but a Grand Adventure!
