Park Visitor: Comments, Memories and Reviews
December 10 Beautiful in the fall by Vivie Foxehagen
My husband and I spent an afternoon at Backbone fall 2014. So not flat like where we live. The sun in late afternoon lit up the fall color in the trees like they were glowing. I have a few nice photos on flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/kittiesandsomeofmyfavoritethings/sets/72157649528615076
Would love to visit again sometime.

April 30 I must go there again! by Zorro
While visiting my wonderful family in Iowa, they took me to Backbone State Park, I fell in love with that place. The last time was 3 years ago, and I am visiting my family again this yr and I told them I got to go back, and they will take me. Love the unique environment comparing to where I am from, Southern California! Sure am looking forward to spending the day mediating there this summer!
March 27 An pleasant surprise in the heart of IA by Corey J
I was married in Backbone State Park after only a single visit to checkout the venue. I was extremely pleased to find such a jewel hidden in plain sight around the surrounding corn fields.
August 18 God did this park right!!! by Mary P- Omaha
You are driving east on some little road through the corn fields, and suddenly you see a patch of trees. As you enter the park you are suddenly in a mini Grand Canyon with rocks, streams and rivers. God did it right with this park, oh and those guys who work there do a great job too!!!
