Lake Manawa State Park
Food, fun, and folks – that’s a few days at Lake Manawa State Park on 1,500 acres of western Iowa. Bike, walk or jog along the shoreline of Lake Manawa, and get ready for fishing, sunbathing and swimming in this impressive Iowa state park near Council Bluffs.
The 800-acre Lake Manawa welcomes boats of all sizes, so feel free to find your favorite spot on the water and drop a line for crappie, bluegill and catfish.
Reel in some bass and walleye, and then hit the beach for sunbathing, picnics, and sand castle building. Rent a canoe or kayak for some more fun on Lake Manawa – soon to be your new favorite vacation spot.
Bring the bikes, and take advantage of the top-notch paved bike trail within Lake Manawa State Park. The park’s section of the bike trail connects to the area’s many other bike trail systems, including the Western Trails Center, the Wabash Trace Trail, and the Council Bluffs trail system. You can cycle yourself silly, no matter the time of year at Lake Manawa State Park.
