Close-up Raptors!
This place was a very pleasant and unusual surprise. The Raptor Project rehabilitates birds like bald eagles, kestrels, hawks of all sorts, and owls. Some are released back into the wild after their injuries are healed, but there are always a few who are so badly hurt they can't fly, and so live the rest of their lives in attentive captivity. Here they're kept separately in large wooden shelters, fed and cared for by a loving staff. Visitors walk down a long path, viewing these fabulous birds from a few feet away. We saw a great horned owl, a short horned owl (wow, are these cute!), a red-tailed hawk, a barn owl, a bald eagle, a vulture, a kestrel, a gyrfalcon, and various other raptors. A few were so imprinted on people that they "talked" to us. It was a cool, cloudy day, but we didn't mind the weather at all as we moved from display to display. One of the staff invited us into the station to see the red-tailed hawk and the vulture, kept inside because it was too cold for them to remain in their usual enclosures. We spent a good couple of hours there, including time in the Bird Blind, where we watched woodpeckers, juncos, and various other types of winter birds flitting through tree branches, keeping an eye on the four does licking up corn and other goodies almost within reach. We had a great time. This place does get crowded in warm months, where they can have as many as 600 people go through in one day. Getting this close to these fantastic birds was wonderful!

Visit The Iowa Raptor Project
This is a nice section of land along Lake Macbride. The trails are nice and there are lots of nice camping spots. The University of Iowa maintains a raptor rescue facility here that is definitely worth a visit.

A nice park with water problems

This is a beautiful state park, with lots of activities for all. But the biggest drawback at the present time is the lakes water quality. Agriculture run off has hurt the water in this beautiful lake. So check out the health of the lake before you use it.

The trails around here are surprisingly varied and full of interesting overlooks and gullies. The raptor center is not to be missed.

This area, and all surrounding it, are simply some of the most gorgeous and serene areas in Iowa and furthermore, in the country. Get some excercise outdoors, bring your kids, your pets, your friends, family, or just bring yourself. A MUST area to see if in the area. Awesome!

We came here to camp for the Iowa homecoming, and were quite pleased with the campsite. It was full of beautiful trees, the spaces were level, and the water and electrical hook ups were very well located. We will be back!

Relaxing and beautiful

We visited the rec area to check out the raptor center. I was really surprised at how much more they have there. It's always heartwarming to see a place like this that allows for sick and injured animals to get medical attention and heal before going back into the wild. There was also an area that looked like they would do demonstrations, but nothing was going on when we were there. The landscape is well groomed, but not so much that it doesn't take away from the natural beauty. There are lots of trails to explore and you can even get all the way down to the river if you want to go for a swim.
