Sugar bottom campground was good to us. We always enjoy COE (Corps of Engineer) campgrounds but this one holds a special spot in our hearts. Not only is it an awesome campground with great hiking trails (a little cave with a creek for the kids to play in), a good disc gold course, and awesome bike trails but a great place for us to make the transition from homeowners to full-time RVers.
Sugarbottom sits on Lake Mcbride/Coralville Lake just east of North Liberty and about 15 min. north of Iowa City, which is nice for us since all the kids doctors are at the U of Iowa. The North Liberty community has a lot to offer - including a rec/community pool/library all in the same location, and our favorite shops in one stop - The Bluebird Cafe and Mail, Print, and More. We love Marrisa at Mail, Print, and More, so much that we made that our "permanent" address. We have a post office box there and she is going to box and forward our mail - she is soooooo awesome! Everyone we met in North Liberty went out of their way to be friendly and beyound helpful.
John also got volunteer job for the summer there, so we got a full service hook-up, a nice wide cement pad on a private loop, and all the fun we could pack in - all in exchange for 21 hours of service. Life really is good.
We had campouts with friends, many smore's consumed around amazing fires, every piece of playground equipment climbed on, geocache found, disk golf baskets rattled, sandcastles built and washed away, birthdays celebrated, and too many footprints left to be counted.
