Iowa’s State Parks:
Also Forests, Recreation Areas, and Preserves

Iowa’s State Parks provides residents and tourists with a comprehensive guide to Iowa’s state-owned parks, recreation areas, forests, and selected preserves. Campers, fishers, birdwatchers, rockhounds, or anyone with an interest in nature or Iowa should find this book to be a valuable guide to the many resources Iowa has to offer.

No other source combines all the basic information one needs to plan activities in the outdoors. Organized by region (northeast, southeast, southwest, and northwest Iowa), park listings include information on layout, geology, animal and plant life, fishing, boating, camping, and other activities, as well as sources for more information. In addition, each listing provides the location of the park, and many are accompanied by a map of the park area.

Robert Wolf also traces the events and sketches the people behind then development of many state parks, and in so doing, provides the reader with a glimpse of Iowa’s rich and long history, from the colonial era to the present.

This book is therefore invaluable not only for the sightseer, camper, or nature enthusiast, but also for those interested in various aspects of local or regional history.
