*From corner to corner, Iowa has some beautiful county parks. In far NW-Iowa is Lyon County and Lake Pahoja Rec Area is their premier park for camping, fishing, swimming, hiking, and perfect sunsets. Our stay at Lake Pahoja was complimentary. The views expressed in this blog post are of our own. Now, let’s Gallivant!
Cabins are always on my mind. We’ve been seeking them out more and more as we Gallivant into our 8th year of family travels. We’ve experienced A LOT of Iowa’s county parks and we can safely say that Lake Pahoja is the most northwestern park we’ve ever visited in the Hawkeye State, and it was well worth the drive. You can’t be any further from Des Moines and still be in the State of Iowa when you get to Lyon County!

I wonder what Lake Pahoja and the beauty of Lyon County looks like in all seasons. I saw glimpses of what Iowa’s wide open prairies looked like before western expansion. To look at Iowa at its most extreme northwest reaches made all of the state’s regions come rushing into my head. I love this state and Lyon County brought out the best of its memories for me. I made it to a literal corner of the world I had been wanting to see ever since I gave a serious look at a map of Iowa. Thank you to everyone that experienced it with me and my family. We’ll see you again!
