Marble Beach, Spirit Lake, IA

In in short detour from I-90, which runs across the southern edge of Minnesota, we’re just over the Iowa state line and parked at Marble Beach, a state recreation area in the Spirit Lake area. Here, we’ve met friends and family that started out from Sheridan, WY 2 days ago and will travel the rest of the way to Duluth with us.

We’re in sites 80 & 81, side-by-side back-in sites at the end of a loop of grassy tent sites.  These two sites are built up on large mounds of dirt which can easily leave your first step into the camper at about waist height.  This is also the first time we’ve needed to use our 30A electrical extension – our electrical connection is nearly a site away – barely reachable with both our normal connection AND the extension.  These are electric-only sites, water fill and and a dump station are available at the top of the loop.

With a real downpour that lasts about 20 minutes while we were out walking around the campground, our sites are muddy, dark and damp the next morning.  We might stay at Marble Beach again, but wouldn’t select these two sites.
