Iowa Oct 2014

We arrived at Nielsen RV Park - I drove from Sioux City Iowa to the park - this was the longest I had driven at one time; plus my first time on a 2 lane road -- all went well -- I kept it between the lines...

Zane (12y/o Grandson) stayed with us the 2 weekends we were in Iowa
 The park is surrounded by trees, which helps with the winds that came through Iowa any time of year. The area for the RVs is away from the road, so we found this to be a peaceful place to stay. The lots are gravel. We used our Jack Pads, so we were not bothered by the rains. The 2 inches of rain one night soaked into the earth under the well established grass, so this was not an issue for us, plus the gravel driveway was dry when we left. The owner is very friendly. We received a discount, which was not posted on the web. The GPS directions are not accurate. Park is located across the road from the Rosman Glendale - Shelby County Golf Course.. which is a lovely course, if you are a golfer, or stop in for a friendly time. 

Jenny and Zane...
