This beautiful 40 acres of fenced hilly land with 3.5 private ponds for fishing by the red rock lake in Iowa are perfect for tent camping and RVs. We recently built a 20ft diameter geodesic dome tent for those who want more climate controlled stay while still enjoying the magnificent nature's gift. There are 3 tent/RV sites on top of the hill, one in the woods. Each site has a firepit, picnic table and a solar light . The drinking water is at the entrance. RVs need to be self contained. There are tons of nature features, you may see deer, rabbits and other game birds by your campsite. White breast beach is very close to the campground, a lot of water activities in the lake red rock are year round. For our campers safety, hunting activities are not allowed within our camping ground. However, in case you come for hunting with a Iowa deer hunting license, a couple of public deer hunting grounds are near our camping ground. The recently built glamping geodesic Dome tent is located on a top of hill. Our campers will have a fantastic water pond and lake view while enjoy the great nature, and have a comfortable stay . Yes! You may even bring your chicken to camp here.^_*. And cell phone signals are good to use your hotspot remote working at this astonishing Lake Red Rock Oasis ^_^. Hope you will find joy, peace and happiness in this wonderful piece of natural land and surrounding the Red Rock lake areas. A little history of this land: This 40 acres of land was a surface mining site. The reclamation works done during the 1970s. But over the years, the soil was seriously eroded. Anna and Peilin, who have Masters and PhD in soil and environment health background, bought this land several years ago and started to restore the vegetation. Now the site looks beautiful and ready for nature lovers and campers to enjoy the fantastic view of the lake, ponds and tall grass... The site is totally different from what the Google map shows now.

Tent/RVs Site 3 - on top of a hill
Nice Private Spot
Site 3 was wonderful, it felt much more private than your standard campsite. This site has tree cover, good placement of a fireplace, and a great view of the sunset. My only warning would be to watch out for bugs, and be ready to go a little under a mile if you need a good shower. We went to nearby whitebreast campground to shower at night, it was a short drive but might have been a long walk. Anna was very responsive and willing to provide help and information, and we enjoyed our stay.

Fantastic Geodesic tent glamping
Great experience with kids
I stayed in the dome with my three kids, and we had a blast. I chose to stay in the dome because I had never gone camping before, and I feel safer when there is a door to lock. My kids are aged 6 to 12, and they had fun exploring this private land, keeping the campfire alive, and watching the sunset and the stars. The AC quickly cooled down the dome on a hot summer day, and there will be a fireplace to warm the dome in the winter. The Lake Red Rock nearby is gorgeous. After an exhausting week, I was rejuvenated by the nature and the dome.

Tent/RV site 4 cool summer in woods
The BEST secret in the area !! Although there are no hook ups, and you totes out what you bring, it is by far, the BEST place I have stayed !! Tent campsite #4 was just what the dr ordered !! Beautiful in the daylight and the dark. Others who were there, I never heard them at all. Very secluded spot I found. Great walking trails through and beyond site 4. I am going to go there again next weekend !! Everyone that needs to feel sanity come back into their lives, needs to go camp at Red Rock Lake Oasis--- Tripod !!! It is a must see, especially if you are about camping in the rough and beauty. I will refer many others, to this amazing place !! You will not regret the view in the early morning, or the beautiful sun set. Very close to 3 towns, one of which has walmart etc. Anna is FANTASTIC !! She only comes around if you need something, or if someone has left from their stay. She is so kind. Please go check this place out !!
