INDIAN LAKE PARK, FARMINGTON, IOWA

SECLUDED LAKE GET AWAY

OCTOBER 12 - 15 WAS THE SCENIC DRIVE FESTIVAL IN THE VILLAGES OF VAN BUREN COUNTY. THEY ARE ABOUT 2 HOURS SOUTH OF CEDAR RAPIDS JUST OFF HIGHWAY 218. EVERY YEAR MY FAMILY RENTS CABINS AT THIS LAKE AND HAVE ONE LAST GET TOGETHER BEFORE THE SNOW FLIES. WE ENJOY THE AMISH STORE IN CANTRIL AND ARTS AND CRAFTS VENDORS IN ALL OF THE OTHER RIVER TOWNS ALONG THE DES MOINES RIVER. WE ENJOY A POTLUCK SUPPER AND A CAMPFIRE TO CATCH UP ON FAMILY NEWS. THIS A GREAT PLACE ANY TIME OF THE YEAR, BUT, IN THE FALL IT SHINES.
