Lake Red Rock Kayaking Trip @ Red Rock Reservoir

As featured on Iowa Outdoors, we really can “backcountry camp” in Iowa! Iowa’s largest lake provides the setting for this short weekend getaway. Kayak to a wilderness campsite and explore the lake. Paddle past old etched graffiti, see the gorgeous red rocks and cliffs; and, if the lake is at the right level, see the “peace” tree – a large stump in the middle of the lake. If you are planning a trip to the BWCA or Lake Superior kayaking, this is a great beginner lake to test those paddling and camping skills.
