Early Bird Special! Book an April camping trip and get another 20% off. A convenient 7 miles north of Interstate 80 but feels like an oasis away from it all. Enjoy nature in a private, wooded river valley setting. Go to sleep under the stars to the sound of frogs, cicadas, coyotes, deer and the rustling wind through the tallgrass prairie. Wake to an amazing sunrise over the river. Enjoy a hike through our 75 acres of rolling woodlands and prairie, picking berries, finding mushrooms, scaring up a turkey or pheasant in the brush or listening to the birds. (Pull out your Merlin app to see who's singing!) Play in the river or upland pond, cut cattails and prairie grasses for souvenirs and enjoy being unplugged for a while. Your hosts are here if you need us, but we leave you to enjoy this beautiful place at your own pace.

Great Atmosphere
We camped in our small rv trailer Scamp, which was perfect for the site. Campsites are right on the Cedar River, each one affording great views and lots of privacy. There are hiking trails all around. We heard lots of birdsong, geese, coyotes and some unidentifiable sounds lol. White pelicans were beautiful on the water. Suzan is a great host and made sure we were well taken care of. Thank you!

Suzan's a great host! The site was clean, clear, and she was quick to greet and ensure we were settled in. Directions to get in were clear and accurate, would visit again!

This is truly a great site! Right on the Cedar River, and able to drive right up to the site. Very private and beautiful. 10/10 would recommend! The freeze dried sweet corn is a fun touch

Love this location!
Beautiful rustic campsite right on the Cedar river. Equipped with fire ring and a picnic table, it had jut the right amount of amenities combined with an amazing sight right on the river. Was surprisingly dark as well for how close the site is to Iowa city. Loved it and will go back.

Very quiet secluded spot on the Cedar River. Our family had an amazing time, and the hosts were welcoming and accommodating. We fished, hiked, foraged, followed game trails, and didn’t see another soul the whole time. I would highly recommend this camping site!!
