So we are at Tailwater West at Coralville Lake near Iowa City--much closer to home--for what promises to be a weekend of perfect camping weather. When we were thinking of ordering this camper and were on our month long trip in the south, we watched in vain for a Highland Ridge Light, hoping to get a tour and talk to the owners. An hour after we pulled in here, another one parked right next to us. Go figure.
The interesting thing about this campground is that it is below Coralville Dam--hence the name--and as long as the dam doesn't break, it is a great spot. Sometimes in the early morning, the local turkey vultures land on the rocky slope of the dam and spread their wings out to dry them.
