I loved camping on Cathy’s flower farm! The bathroom was clean and it was a beautiful view to wake up to. Cathy herself is the sweetest person and offers free coffee. If I ever am passing through Iowa, I would definitely stay here again.

I loved camping at Cathy’s flower farm. The garden is beautiful. This was my second time camping alone and it was so easy. Cathy greeted me and showed me around. Had a great time chatting and had plenty of time to relax. View is serene and so quiet at night.

Such a fantastic spot! The cornzebo was a perfect place to sit and read, and Cathy was warm and welcoming. I’d stay here again, if I could!

This hipcamp is magical!
Imagine this, a mom and two kids traveling cross country. On the road for days. Tired. Road weary. And then, Miss Effie’s Flower Farm. If you’re looking for a magical place to stay, this is it. Cathy is incredibly warm and inviting, just an amazing host, and she’s created this beautiful little pocket of safety for people to step into in and truly relax. Everything was incredible, including the portapotty (let’s be honest, they’re not always the best) which was clean, smelled great, and was pink on top of it. It fit in perfectly with the flowers 🌸 As we were getting settled, Cathy came out to tell us there was going to be a storm with very high winds, 80 mph. She had a small cottage she rents out (absolutely adorable if you’re looking to stay there) and she put us in there to keep us safe. She even came out and checked on us after the winds died down. The whole experience, plus delicious coffee in the morning, means we have to find a reason to come through Iowa again. If you’re looking to book here, don’t hesitate, it’s simply the most magical hipcamp we’ve ever stayed in (and we’re a camping family). Book here, you absolutely will not regret it!
