*Just minutes from the main business district of Manning, Iowa with all its fantastic roadside attractions, restaurants and shopping is a cozy campsite with a German backdrop just steps away from your campfire. Our stay at the German Hausbarn campsite was complimentary. The views expressed in this blog post are of our own. Now, let’s Gallivant!
I like to camp. I also like being close to town. I also like plush canopies of trees. And I like having restaurants nearby. I also like hearing a creek flow by as I drift off to sleep. I want walking trails, roadside attractions and big meals grilled outdoors. All of these niche camping qualities are offered in Manning and it’s right next to one of Iowa’s most famous barns. Get your rig ready for Willow Creek and the German Hausbarn Campground!
The great American cookout is the ultimate way to enjoy any campsite. Earlier in the day we supplied up at Bordenaro’s in Carroll, and supper couldn’t happen soon enough. I was ready for the grill, smoke, meats, salads and the beautiful Manning evening!
The early morning sunshine was out and I was back on the walking trail. Past the church, historic homestead and farm, back to the freedom rock, greetings from our neighbors at other campsites and one last look at the German Hausbarn.
We love the wilderness and roughing it sometimes, but having the entertaining town of Manning in our backyard made this popup camper experience a very memorable one. We thank all of you that came to visit with us and helped the entire gang dive into a premium steak dinner. Let’s load up the grills again at the Hausbarn!
