Going to be in Des Moines for a few weeks and wanted to do a little road trip to a cool lake nearby. Where would be the best place to take a little road trip? We want to do some camping and lounging so any area that's the best for that :) Willing to drive 4 hours tops. Thanks!
There are a lot of areas, but I grew up by Rathbun Lake which is south of Des Moines about 1.5 hrs.
Honey Creek Resort is a good area there.
