Discover Lake Macbride Campground

Lake Macbride State Park is Iowa’s largest state park. In Solon, the park covers more than 2,150 acres. Enjoy a variety of recreational activities when you visit with your camper rental. Take a stroll on the five-mile trail on the north side of Lake Macbride, or explore seven more miles of trails that meander through oak and hickory forests and along prairies. On a hot day, cool off on the lake’s beach or sail off into the 812-acre lake. Pontoons, motorboats, paddleboats, canoes, and kayaks are welcome. If you’re into fishing, popular catches include channel catfish, muskie, walleye, and Kentucky spotted bass. And if you need more than a day to explore the park, you can always camp at Lake Macbride Campground.

Lake Macbride State Park has two campgrounds. The modern campground is located in the northern part of the park and has electric and full hookup sites. There are also restrooms, hot showers, and a dump station. The rustic campground in the southern park unit has non-electric sites and non-flush toilets. Both the modern and rustic campgrounds have playgrounds nearby.

The Great Outdoors

Another local state park is Palisades-Kepler State Park in Mount Vernon. The picturesque park has dramatic river bluffs, stately hardwood trees, deep ravines, a large variety of wildflowers, and tons of wildlife. Explore the park via six miles of hiking trails. Settle down for a cookout at one of the picnic shelters, or stay the night at the modern campground or one of the cabins. The 840-acre park also provides the opportunity to enjoy various river activities such as boating, tubing, and fishing. Popular catches on the Cedar River include bluegill, bass, and channel catfish.

Coralville Lake is a massive body of water just 15 miles away when you park your rental motorhome at Lake Macbride Campground. While the lake’s primary purposes are to aid in flood control and low flow augmentation, it’s also a popular spot for recreation and wildlife management. The lake has three campgrounds, hiking trails, mountain bike trails, and picnic pavilions. Guests can also fish, swim in the lake, hunt, boat, and more.

Something else to check out when you book an RV in Johnson County is the Devonian Fossil Gorge. This archaeological wonder reveals the ancient remains of an ocean floor more than 375 million years old. The fossilized Devonian ocean floor was first uncovered by a flood in 1993 when water washed away tons of soil, massive trees, and part of the road system. More of the Devonian ocean floor was revealed after a flood in 2008. Visitors to the gorge start their trip at the entry plaza and then make their way down into the gorge, where they’ll be greeted by countless fossils at their feet.

Exploring the City

There’s so much to do and see when you rent a camper near Lake Macbride Campground. The Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum in West Branch, Iowa, is just one option. The museum has various exhibits that tell of the life and times of the former president. From his birth to his life as an engineer, Secretary of Commerce, and President of the United States, you can learn all about the impact Hoover had on the United States and across the globe. The museum also has a gift shop that sells items unique to Iowa, presidential souvenirs, books, Christmas ornaments, and other things to help you remember your visit.

Have children in your Solon camper rental? Then be sure to check out Iowa’s Children Museum. The museum, located in Coralville, inspires children to learn, play, and imagine. There are several different exhibits within the 28,000-square-foot facility. Check out the art studio, build at the Block Party exhibit, or learn about cooking at Pizzeria Pie. Familiarize your children with finances at City Money or City Grocery. And because a healthy kid is a happy kid, your little ones can learn all about health at the pretend play hospital, Notion of Motion, Imaginacres, and other physically engaging exhibits. Whether you have the whole day or just a few hours, little ones won’t soon forget a trip to Iowa’s Children Museum.

For the older crowd, the University of Iowa’s Museum of Natural History is sure to please. The Iowa City museum takes visitors through a 500-million-year adventure. Explore the state’s cultural, geological, and ecological history. Learn about the resident and seasonal bird populations of Iowa at the “Taking Flight” exhibit, or discover the relationship between humans and the natural environment at the Biosphere Discovery Hub. There’s also the Mammal Hall, Laysan Island Cyclorama, Diversity of Life Exhibits, and many temporary exhibits.
