Iowa Cabins

When planning Iowa vacations, deciding on where to spend the night is an important part of the preparation. Many hotels, everything from budget hotels to luxury hotels, are options wherever you're planning to visit. Rustic camping and tents are other options, but not everyone is comfortable with lugging gear and braving the elements. Cabins in Iowa are yet another option for places to stay the night after you spend your days enjoying the fun things to do in the state. State park rentals, campgrounds, and other Iowa cabins provide shelter, and a comfortable place to anchor at a reasonable price.

Often, Iowa cabin rentals are available near a lake. When enjoying water recreation, choosing lake cabins in Iowa is perfect if you are seeking a comfortable place to relax after a long day of outdoor fun. Many of these options for lake lodging provide some of the best views found anywhere, as they're perched right on the shores. Those staying in cabins can enjoy the lake, from the first light of dawn to the final setting of the sun, without having to worry about the best time to get to the lake or when to beat the crowds.

Spirit Lake and Okoboji Lakes, part of the chain of lakes known as the Great Lakes of Iowa, both have cabins along their shores. After visitors have settled into their lake cabins in Iowa, they can get out and explore. The region is home to an array of restaurants, attractions, shops, and visitor amenities in addition to the range of cabins in Iowa that are found along the shores of the lakes.

Black Hawk State Park, just outside Waterloo, offers cabin rentals and camping, in addition to its outdoor recreational offerings, including hiking, boating, and one of Iowa's most scenic lakes. Those who have rented lake cabins in Iowa have made a smart choice for a fun, yet economical way to enjoy Iowa vacations.

As Black Hawk proves, it's wise to consider the state parks when looking for Iowa cabin rentals. All around the Hawkeye state, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources offers some 75 cabins available for rent at state parks. Each of the cabins can be reserved up to a year in advance and offer a range of amenities. From the basic yurts of McIntosh State Park to the climate-controlled cabins at Backbone State Park, these Iowa cabins offer something for all type of campers.

Other options for Iowa cabins include the collection of campgrounds found all around the state. With a roof over your head and the comforts of home, it is easy to enjoy all of fun things to do that are planned for the next day. KOA is one option for choosing Iowa cabins. Along with one-room cabins, the campground not far from Des Moines offers RV hookups, tent sites, a fishing pond, swimming pool, and guest services. Cabin rentals also are available at Onawa/Blue Lake KOA, located within easy driving distance of Sioux City and Omaha, Nebraska. Both of these campgrounds received the 2008 President's Award for quality and guest satisfaction, as well as the Founder's Award, placing them among the elite KOA campgrounds.

An array of independent campgrounds, both large and small, offer Iowa cabin rentals for those coming to hunt, fish, and explore Iowa's many things to do.
