Come and enjoy the wonderful natural beauties and get the healing powers!  

The campsites are located on a peninsula in the Lake Red Rock. It is about 50 miles from Des Moines.  There are 4 campsites within a 40 acres fenced land with three private ponds for fishing and 10-acre tree area for hiking. This is the place to go if you want get away from the crowded camping sites!

This campsite is inside the 10-acre tree area. It has a fire pit with a tripod for food cooking and a  table.  This site feels cool even in hot summer, and have access to the ponds and walking trails with sunsetting views. 

 The are also a lots to do nearby within a block away, such as  Whitebreastswiming  Beach, Red rock lake boat ramp, Historic Coal Ridge Church, Stu Kuyper hiking trail, and Youth park etc. 

This campsite are perfect for family relaxing camping, Van-camping, road trip stop,  friends gathering, or come and stay for local events in the nearby cities, such as  in Des Moines, Newton, Pella, Knoxville, Oskaloosa,  Monroe,  Pleasantville,  Indianola etc..  

You will need bug repellent during summer. We do not use any chemicals on site. Ticks are common during earlier spring and summer in grassy areas and woods, but not usually found during Fall and Winter.  There may be hunting gun sounds near or far during hunting seasons, but absolutely no hunting activities in our private camping ground.

 Please note that 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.

Nice secluded spot in the woods! The only downside is there isn't much air flow so it was a bit toasty. However, it was August so what do you expect, it's the hottest month of the year!

Camping at Anna’s place was awesome. The woods is great for shade and the toilet is right next to the campsite. A generous amount of firewood was provided. Do not buy at gas station buy from them it’s a better deal! So many mushrooms and collected some golden oyster mushrooms while I was there. It did rain on us but the trees cover the tent enough that our waterproof tent didn’t flood. It was a nice experience in the rain! There was many wood peckers and different kinds of birds. Many fireflies and the night sky was bright. The ponds are great for fishing and if you like privacy this is the campsite for you. The park of lake red rocks is a four minute drive. If you want to kayak go to Cordova Park. If you kayak to the right facing the lake about a mile away you will see rock formation. The park also has awesome trails and clean showers and bathrooms!

Beautiful view! Tripod great for cooling! Lake red rock biggest lake in Iowa! 
Catch this fish great experience. Secluded pond for this site.

Staying at Anna's campsite was great. There was plenty of shade from the sun, but we still got a nice breeze through the campsite. This is a very wooded campsite, so bring bug spray! We did, and the bugs left us alone. Only saw one tick the whole time. Campsite was clean and had a table and fire pit. The table was super convenient, because we forgot ours. Car can pull up into the campsite, which was great, because we had kids who didn't want to do a lot of walking.

In the evening, definitely walk up the hill leading into the campsite and watch the sunset! Also, a good field for stargazing at night too.

There were some trails leading around the land, but if you want to do even more hiking, Lake Red Rock is only 5-10 minutes away, and offers lots of great outdoor activities. But staying at Anna's means you can enjoy Lake Red Rock without having to share a campground with noisy neighbors and too many people.

All in all, it was easy to find and everything was very convenient. I would recommend to anyone that wants a quiet weekend away.

Selfishly, I do not want to give a great review because I want to have this place available whenever I want. HA! Alas, I can not give a bad review. This place was amazing. Anna has created the perfect space for camping and I can not wait to get back!

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.
