Looks like the wife wants to go to the Geneseo Campgrounds. I guess its right next to the Hennepin canal.

Its not a necessity for my truck as it handles the travel trailer just fine. But did anyone ever add leaf springs or air suspension to reduce some of the stress on the rear axle or added control as you drive?

We will be staying in Oxford, IA from June 14th through July 6th. Only place that will take that long of a stay. Could not find anything closer to Iowa City.

Iowa Camping

MartyQ, thanks for the info, but need to be close to Iowa City area during that time frame. You are correct about the area being nice to see and visit, have done many times.
