The Hidden Geode State Park Beach In Iowa Will Take You A Million Miles Away From It All

Iowa may not have sprawling ocean beaches, but it does have a plethora of beautiful natural swimming spots in its many lakes and rivers. Of course, everyone’s heard of or been to the Okoboji and Spirit Lake and had a blast swimming, water skiing, going to Arnolds Amusement Park, shopping and eating and just generally enjoying the bustling crowds and tourist attractions that the area has to offer. But sometimes it’s nice to go somewhere a little more off the beaten path, to just get away from it all and soak in the natural beauty from the warm sand and scenic water.

We think that Lake Geode, in Danville’s beautiful Geode State Park, is a hidden gem that provides relaxation and fun in the sun without all of the hustle and bustle.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
