Lake Le-Aqua-Na State Park
We left Prairie Rose State Park, Harlan, IA, on Wednesday, 8/22. After a quick stop at the dump station and another stop for fuel, we headed east on I-80 to Davenport, IA. Last year about this time we stayed at Summit Campground
which is located in a county park named West Lake Park. It was recommended by our RV friends, Jim and Linda. We liked it so much we decided to stop there again. I was hoping to get the same site as last year and happily it was available, so we took it. Here’s our site, #115.
That’s our rig way down the road in the middle of the picture. Note all the empty sites.

The site has 30 amp electric and water for $18 per night. They don’t take reservations, and it does get somewhat busier on the weekends.
The RV dump station…
and the restroom/shower house.
The site next to us was available…
as were many sites on this Wednesday night.
West Lake Park has recycle bins for our recycling pleasure.
We did take advantage of them too!
After getting setup, we headed into town to Steak and Shake, one of our favorites, but not always available where we are. We both had the Frisco Melt. Terri had fries and I “upgraded” to onion rings.
Terri had a dark chocolate milkshake with chocolate chips and I had a chocolate milkshake. In retrospect, I should have gotten a dark chocolate shake too. They were both tasty, but I liked the dark chocolate better.
After we finished our delicious dinner we went home and I watched the Bristol NASCAR truck race.
The next day, Thursday, 8/23, we pulled out and headed up to Lake Le-Aqua-Na State Park near Lena, IL.
We parked in site #130 with 50 amp electric for $20 per night. There’s no water available at the sites, so we took on water before moving in to our spot.
Here’s a look down the street at all the empty sites.
The rest of the week will be recapped in “Part Two” which I hope to have completed soon………
Tomorrow, Friday, 8/31, we’re going to be having lunch with some fellow RV-DREAMERS who are staying near us (about 1.5 hours south) this Labor Day weekend.
Now I wonder who that might be…
