Camping is the outdoor activity of choice for Iowans.
That’s the opinion of visitors who participated in a poll Aug. 10-20 at the Iowa State Fair. The survey offered participants a chance to vote on one of nine options as part of the exhibit, “How Do You Outdoors?” Camping received the largest number, 370, or 18%, of the votes cast. Following closely behind were hiking and fishing, at 353 and 347 votes, respectively, or 17% each of the total.
