Come and enjoy the wonderful natural beauties and it's healing powers!  

This is the place to go if you want get away from the crowded camping sites!

The campsites are located on a peninsula in the Lake Red Rock. It is about 50 miles in the 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.

All of 4  campsites have a fire pit with a tripod for food cooking and a picnic table.  Thee of four sites have a beautiful view of ponds and lake, one site is in woods.  The sites are perfect to watch beautiful sunsets.

 The are also a lots to do nearby. The Whitebreast Beach, Red rock lake boat ramp, Historic Coal Ridge Church, and Youth park are within a mile. 

These campsites are perfect for family relaxing camping, Van-camping, road trip,  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 camping ground.

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.

Anna’s land is amazing. It felt very remote. There was even another camper one of the nights and we hardly noticed where he was. Campsite 1 has an amazing sunset view and we even went down the road and used the state park beach which was nice as well.

My wife and I love camping, so we splurged on a tiny 9’ Meerkat trailer for a bit more comfort (an actual bed) and convenience (think late night trips to the bathroom) as we age out of tent camping (turning 70 in December). But we were so disappointed with what “camping” has become in the last few years - gigantic white metal boxes all crammed into a virtual parking lot. And nobody ever steps away from their tv’s and easy chairs to actually visit the great outdoors first hand!

That’s where Hipcampers and Anna’s Land come in, with only 4 camping spaces and plenty of room to get away from all those people thinking they’re getting away from it all. We stayed in site #3 for two nights. It sits high atop a grassy hill with a view that goes on for miles. Our Meerkat is sort of self-contained so we had the basics for camping, with a water supply, a porta potty, and a solar panel to keep the Kat’s battery topped off for charging cell phones (I’m an avid news skimmer, and both my wife and I enjoy taking photos).

Site #3 has a nice picnic table where we could use our single burner stove for cooking, heating coffee water and eating. There was also a bit of woods in the back where it was shady and cool for surviving the two 90+ degree days we spent there.

Finally, getting away from it all to remember what getting away is all about! Anna added to our great experience by being quickly responsive to our questions by texts or messaging in the Hipcampers app.

My new favorite spot for a weekend getaway! The hilltop is beautiful and there is even a view of the lake. The ponds on the property are a great bonus too with LOTS of fish (I caught bass, bluegill and crappie). It was also really nice that there is a tripod and table at each campsite for cooking. I would 10/10 recommend this spot to anyone!

Beautiful spot! I camped in the lower site overlooking the pond. Had a gorgeous evening by the fire. It's buggy on a summer evening, but a campfire will help that a lot. Perfect sunset views, super peaceful. Each campsite is outfitted so nicely, too--you've got a picnic table, a great fire pit with cooking tripod, and solar powered lanterns. Even if all four sites were full, I think this spot would still feel relatively private and quiet.

Unfortunately, the weather got rough later in the evening. A wind storm blew in (no rain, luckily) and I had a sleepless night! Not the fault of the hosts at all. Just know that this site is probably a little more exposed to the elements than highest site, which is partially sheltered by trees. Overall, glad I camped here, and would highly recommend!

This site was absolutely perfect! The view was amazing being on top of the hill, and the privacy was a nice surprise. Will definitely be coming back!

Site 1 was perfect for a lovely couple of nights last minute on Memorial Weekend. Directions were clear and the site was as described. Mother Nature cooperated with wind and favorable temps so we did not need shade. The site is open with a nice view down into a pond and grassland with lots of birds and frogs. Other campsites were occupied but it is still so much more spacious than the typical campgrounds nearby. The Volksweg bike trail nearby is awesome!
