You may park at designated campsite site or boondocking as you like within a 40 acres fenced land with three private ponds for fishing and 10-acre tree area.  The campsites are on a peninsula in the Lake Red Rock. It is about 50 miles in South-East Des Moines.  We made these designated campsites on top of hills with fire pit and tripod with a picnic table.  All sites have a beautiful view of ponds and lake. The Whitebreast Beach, Red rock lake boat ramp and Historic Coal Ridge Church are within a block away. 

These campsites are perfect for family relaxing camping, Van-camping, road trip,  friends gathering, or come and stay for local events such as Pella Tulip Times in May, Pella Fall Festival in September, Hot Air Balloon Festival in July, or holiday weekend. The Knoxville National Race Car Competitions are 10 minutes driving, and much more.  

 All three sites are perfect to watch beautiful sunsets and see  animals passing by.  We provide a firepit and tripod for you to cook camp food over fire,  or use your wild surviving skills, etc.

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.  We do not use any chemicals on site. 

 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.

Views were wonderful can even see the lake! Plenty of room between campsites. Road noise during the day especially was more than expected as the road infront of the property leads to a large campground and boat ramp. Several trails and a beach at Whitebreast up the street as well as a dump station and garbage. The owner check on us twice throughout our stay and even left us homemade potstickers!

Everything was great. Fire pit and tripod grill was very nice. Chopping wood for the fire was pretty awesome, and it was a nice place to camp overall. There are lots of bugs because of the three ponds but I didn't get bit by a single mosquito during my trip, so it was manageable.

Response from Anna, the Host, on September 14th, 2021

Pleased to know that you had fun chopping wood with an Axe! I added "chopping wood" as an extra to my camping booking just for fun, LOL. Looks like we both had fun!! Thank you!
