It was a great time. We camped in Iowa next to a pond on some farmland owned by the parents of one member of our group. When camping with 4 dogs and 3 babies, it is really best not to have any other campers nearby. Nobody bothered us and we didn’t bother anyone. No one caught any fish, either. We’ll have to go back for another try.
