It was close to town, big sites with electric, water and sewer all at your site. The bike trail is paved, very nice and dogs are allowed on a leash. We went to a couple new brewery's that was fun, along with a farmers market, Arnold's park and some boating all in one weekend.

There are a few little shops in Spirit Lake that are worth visiting. One More Time, This and That, Fisher's Consignment, Red Door...that will get you started.

Easy to get around. The hospital is right off the main drag. Everyone seems so friendly. The only thing I would do away with , is that stupid 8 way stop by Walmart ! GET A STOP LIGHT !!!!!!!
