We live on just over 3 acres of land. Some of it is a flat grass area, some is hilly, and some has taller brush. From any of these camping areas you can see our home but not much else besides fields, brush, and grass - and the sky!
A train goes by a few times a day/night. We are located on a paved rural road, so while you will hear cars go by, there is no flow of constant traffic. We are located an easy two miles from a gas station and an easy 17-30 minute drive to Des Moines if you're looking to go into the city.
The land is former farm land but the house is a historical church rectory that was moved to this location several years ago.
Due to Social distancing we will not be able to meet guests in person but we are home. We have shut down hosting indoor guests during this time as well so the only other people you may see are other campers.

Friendly, speedy communication!
We didn’t actually make it due to unavoidable circumstances but Leanne’s excellent communication and friendliness makes me wish we had!
A hipcamp cat rescue love story
First, you can’t beat the low price of this campsite! That by itself makes this a well worth it stop! Like many others have said, there is very minimal road noise and the train going by, while loud, does not last long. I felt I had a decent amount of privacy and felt very safe here.
On a completely different note, I wanted to share the cool experience I had while staying here of the stray cat I rescued. He approached my campsite one night and was very friendly. After checking that it wasn’t the landowner’s or neighbor’s I knew he was a road warrior kitty who had been in his fair share of fights. He was so sweet and trusting that I knew I couldn’t leave not knowing what would happen to him after I left to continue my road trip. So we hopped in my car the next morning and went to a local rescue. They assured me he would be rehabbed, neutered, and sent to their adoption program. Not very HipCamp review related but who doesn’t love a wholesome story and happy ending? Definitely a cool experience I will remember on my road trip.
Angel in heaven county
The property has easy access along a paved country road but feels very private. The sounds of the chickens are calming.
More importantly, Leanne herself is an angel in disguise. Her awareness of the needs of her guests and subsequent caring actions are rare indeed. The world needs more Leannes.
