Catching up for our camping at Viking Lake State Park near Stanton Iowa. This is a nice State Park with campsites right next to Viking Lake.

Here is a swan on Viking Lake.

GPS did a good job getting us here, plus there a few signs along the way to help. The campground roads and sites are gravel. There is no park Wifi and the Verizon 4g/cellular signal was weak. There are a lot of trees but some sites can get a good line of sight for satellite reception so we reserved one of those.

Here is the Lifestyle from the front in our site.

This is a nice park and it is one of the more popular campgrounds 
in southwest Iowa. There are spots you can reserve in advance and some that are first-come, first serve. An added bonus is a lake side restaurant right in the park. We ate there with her cousin Sally and her husband Larry. Also with us were Jo's cousin Denny and his wife Peg. The food was pretty good but the view overlooking the lake was even better.

The flowers near the restaurant were gorgeous.

While here Jo was able to visit with her Aunt Dolly who will be 93 later this month.

She also visited with her cousins Denny and Sally.

We had a great time and would stay here again.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo

  1. Looks like a great campground. Looks like you have a huge parking area.

    Jo's aunt sure doesn't look 93! Much younger for sure.
