The Natural Swimming Hole At Awaysis Park In Iowa Will Take You Back To The Good Ole Days
The vast majority of Iowa’s lakes are man-made, crafted by damming up our rivers and re-directing water to reservoirs and ponds where people swim, boat, and fish when the weather is nice. However, if you love natural lakes, you don’t have to settle for man-made lakes all the time! Up in the Iowa Great Lakes region, dozens of glacial lakes showcase the beauty of the Hawkeye State’s natural bodies of water. Big Spirit Lake is the largest of these Iowa Great Lakes, and you can track down the best beach on Spirit Lake at the beautiful and welcoming Awaysis Park.
