Not in Iowa but I can see it from where I sit at Fisherman's Corner COE in Quad Cities.
Cold and windy!

I wait as long as possible but I do keep an eye on temperatures. If it dips to 30 or lower for more than a few hours I will winterize unless I'm actually out camping in it.

Looks good next weekend do i am camping on! A lot of the campgrounds around here set a tentative Oct 15 date but usually stay open a few weekends longer. I basically wait until they close in case i want to do an impromptu trip, but I store inside so I feel like I can skate by a little longer before pulling the plug.

We will be camping in Nashua next weekend. We're coming from Southwest Missouri. Anyone from the area know if there was any damage from the recent flooding?

Usually done by the 2nd week of November. Nothing happening after that then back out in April...or March if I head south.
