Backbone State Park ranked 6th in national Fishing and Boating sweepstakes

The Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation (RBFF) announced last week that Backbone State Park is currently ranked 6th in their Top 10 Mom-Approved Places to Fish and Boat sweepstakes.

Backbone, Iowa's oldest state park, is located three miles south of Strawberry Point. Dedicated in 1919, the 2,001-acre park is named for a narrow and steep ridge of bedrock carved by a loop of the Maquoketa River originally known as the Devil's Backbone.

Vote today ( to make Backbone State Park a Top 10 U.S. destination.

RBFF has extended voting to July 20. You can vote daily. Each vote is entered for a chance to win a family fishing/boating trip in Florida.
