This was a great out of the way spot with lovely views over the countryside. I got to chat with one of the young men who helps run the place and I learned a little about the farm. Definitely worth the visit.
The Host Chad was very nice and greeted us upon arrival to direct us to our campsite. The site was spacious and private and the kids loved the pond with the rope swing. the bathrooms were just a short walk from our campsite and were clean and well stocked.The outdoor shower was nice as well and private.It was a picturesque campsite and we would camp there again for sure.
Perfect for my journey to va!
Absolutely beautiful farm. The quietest I’ve experienced in a long time other that the bagpiper which is nothing that I would have expected 😊. Being Scottish I didn’t mind and it added to the serene scene. Cooling off in the pond was bonus. Everything was clean and groomed. Thank you for an awesome experience!
Thrilled to get to relax in this very remote place in Iowa. We love using Hipcamp for this reason. It takes you off tracks, to a place you wouldn't have considered visiting. The hosts were accommodating and we had a great time!
Birds and fireflies galore!!!
The quiet country setting was phenomenal! There is a nice pond with a swing very close to camp with outhouses and a shower available. You can see thousands of fireflies once the sun sets. Firewood available on site. I stayed on the night of July 3rd with my son, hoping we could see the Independence fireworks (kind of could, bit barely) and we ended up being blessed with the property owners who live 1/2 mile down the road to put on a great show.
Good on the way stop
Good stay for one night. Basic land with some activities we didn’t get the chance to try. Shower was listed here but we were unable to find it. Basic outhouse. Not a ton of privacy but luckily we were the only ones there.
