IOWA (KCAU) — Summertime is almost over, but it’s still a great time to enjoy the great outdoors. And for Iowans, one state park is their top choice to do so.
Digital insurance comparison and marketplace website Insuranks calculated the most popular state or national park in each state based on searches over the past three years. Backbone State Park is the most popular Iowa state park, according to that study.
