The campsite is on a peninsula by the Lake Red Rock, about 50 miles in south-East of Des Moines. It is in a fenced 40 acres of land with 10 acres of trees. Three private fish ponds around the site for fishing. Good for tent, truck top tent and hammock camping.  It is located at the foot of a hill that blocked the northwest wind, so it is nice and cozy during windy days. The Lake Red rock boat ramps, the Whitebreast Park and the Whitebreast beach are nearby.  It is about a 10 minutes drive to the historic tulip town Pella or car raceway Knoxville.    Perfect for relaxing, family or friends gathering, watching wildlife, and walking to the top of a hill to watch beautiful sunsets. We provide a fire pit and tripod for you to cook camp food over fire.  or use your wild surviving skills.

You will need bug repellent during summer. We do not spray any chemicals on site in any season.  Ticks are common in early spring and summer. but not usually found during fall and winter.  

And kids under 10 years old stay free!

Big Mind in a Little Pond

A fourth-rate Mind wants to be the big fish in a little pond,  without realizing there's a bigger pond. 

A third-rate Mind is the big fish in a little pond,  keeping other fish from leaving the little pond. 

A  second-rate Mind  wants to be in the big pond,  but has too much self-doubt to try.

A first-rate Mind, realizes it doesn't really matter which pond it's in and tries to grow regardless.

Everything was perfect! Anna was a wonderful host, going above and beyond expectations with her hospitality. The site was spacious and very private. Land was beautiful and quiet. Sunset was out of this world. The treed area was perfect for escaping summer heat, don't forget your bug spray and a couple of citronella candles though. Fire ring set up was perfect for cooking a few campfire meals. To say we loved everything is an understatement. If we're ever in the area again, will definitely stay here again.

We had a very enjoyable time. We stayed in a tent at site 4 which was in the woods. There were others at the other sites however the sites are spread out well so they do not interfere with each other. Two of the ponds were in a short walking distance and the compost toilet was a short distance up the hill from the site which was great.
