The owners of this hostel also own a large campground.  This hostel is in a big converted barn.  Also within the barn is a restaurant & bar for patrons.  There's a golf course (not in the barn, silly), and an indoor, heated swimming pool.
Right:  The woman and her son reserve a family room at the Old Barn hostel every summer to enjoy the lovely wooded grounds, and to ride down the river in their inner tubes.
Left:   Here's the restaurant and pub in the Old Barn Resort Hostel.  There was also a room with a pool table, and a room with video games.
Left:  Always got to get a picture of my bunk.  Love those bunks!
Left the KOA in Sioux Falls by 5:30 AM.  Heard a couple of rain drops on my tent--well, you know the drill!
Drove to Storm Lake, Iowa to see the Wind Farm.  Lots & lots of huge wind mills!  Just one blade was bigger than my whole car.
To learn more about them,

From the Wind Farm, I zipped over to West Bend, Iowa to see the Grotto of the Redemption.  It's best just to check out thier web site:

I wonder if the guy who built this alone, and the guy who built the "Coral Castle" alone were related?  What causes that anyway?  About the only thing I can build by myself is a submarine sandwich.
