Conveniently located adorable spot!
Loved this spot! Adorable with the string lights and fire pit area. Appreciated the little touches like the cold water bottles and s'mores kit. My kids and dog loved running around the yard after being stuck in the car for 8 hours. Great spot to stop for cross country roadtrip. Nice hosts. Would definitely stop here again. Loved the sunset and sunrise. Clean, well kept area. Close to restaurants and other stores if needed.
Great spot with wonderful hosts
We were searching for places to camp near Ames & Des Moines and were coming up short. This location was perfectly located just north of Ankeny on a beautiful property. We have a 30’ travel trailer and fit no problem. We loved having the power & water hookups. Our son loved running around and swinging on the rope swing! The hosts were very responsive and communicated well every step of our stay. We highly recommend Greenhouse camping- it’s such a great spot!
Peaceful overnight retreat
We had a lovely stay at Greenhouse Camping! The host was very kind and welcoming, and we loved the provided s’mores kit and fire pit! We enjoyed a nice little walk through some of the paths during the day and hung out all evening under the stars with a fire and the fun string lights above! Definitely recommend staying here!!
