It seems like sometimes in the summer, even the most peaceful lakes and swimming holes are packed with visitors looking to cool off. Do you want to get away – and we mean REALLY get away? You might want to head to Lake Sugema in southeast Iowa, only a short distance from the Missouri border. With a peaceful lakefront and a nearby state park perfect for hiking, it may just be the isolated summer retreat you’ve been looking for.
Have you escaped from the crowds at Lake Sugema and Lacey Keosauqua State Park? Let us know all about your getaway in the comments section. If you’re looking for a larger but equally peaceful escape from the summer heat, consider visiting one of Iowa’s largest lakes.
