Iowa's largest lake maintained by the Army Corps of Engineers. There are very good campgrounds near the dam, and in my opinion the campground below the dam are the best. Many bike trails, a marina, and some good fishing. This area is a favorite for birdwatchers and also morel hunting in the spring. If you are looking for an outdoor experience the lake has a lot to offer.
