You'll love this relaxing space to camp and enjoy the Iowa outdoors!  Very easy access,  we are just 1/2 mile off of Interstate-35.  Our farm is bordered by nature on three sides and the city of Ankeny on the south.  This is a single campsite, private and quiet. Your campsite has an adjoining mowed private walking trail overlooking Four Mile Creek, and is also within walking distance of Ankeny sidewalks for biking, walking, jogging.  It’s the best of both worlds - town and country! 

We're a 15 minute drive from Big Creek and Ledges State Parks, Jester Park and Saylorville Lake where you can enjoy fishing, skiing, boating, horseback riding, hiking, biking, and the beach life.  You'll find unique shopping experiences, delicious dining, a good movie, a thriving live music scene just 15 minutes away in downtown Des Moines, downtown and campus town Ames, and  at The District in Ankeny.  

Upon your arrival you'll find the greenhouse mini-fridge is stocked with 4 complimentary bottles of water and everything you'll need for making S'mores.  One free bundle of wood is included with each booking.

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.

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!

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!!
