Best in Iowa: Finalist
Named one of the best Hipcamps to visit in 2023.
This seclude, beautiful pet friendly 40 acres of fenced camping site is on top of hilly land and is rare in Iowa. It has close view of 3.5 private fishing ponds and far view of the Red Rock Lake. There are 10 acres nature timber area that keep you away from the other campers and rest of the world. Each site has a firepit, picnic table and a solar light . The drinking water is at the entrance, but no electricity on site. The RVs need to be self contained. There are tons of nature features, you may see deer, rabbits and other game birds by your campsite. Each camping sites have good distances to keep privacy from each other. A recently built a 20ft diameter geodesic dome tent is for those who want more climate controlled stay while still enjoying the magnificent nature's gifts. For surrounding areas, the close by White Breast Beach is open from May 23-September 3, 2024, boating, hunting and hiking activities in the lake red rock year around. For our campers safety, any hunting activities are not allowed within our camping ground. However, in case you come for hunting with Iowa hunting tags, 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. You will have a fantastic sunset view of ponds and lake view while enjoy the great nature, and have a comfortable stay . The cell phone signals are good, you may use your cell phone hotspot work remotely at this astonishing Lake Red Rock Oasis ^_^. Hope you will find joy, peace and happiness in this wonderful piece of natural land and 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 Master's 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.

Glamping in Fantastic Geodesic Dome
Cozy and delightful
Very cozy with extra amenities I wasn’t expecting. Even though it rained most of the time we were there, it was a great little escape to play some games, and stay warm with the wood stove. We are already looking forward to booking again.

Glamping in Fantastic Geodesic Dome
Peaceful and hospitable! We loved our stay! It was close enough to town to run in and grab a bite or a necessity. Hosts were quick to respond to questions and gave lots of recommendations for nearby restaurants. Most importantly, my dogs loved it! Great stay!

Glamping in Fantastic Geodesic Dome
10/10 - will return soon!
My partner and I absolutely loved ‘glamping’ in Anna’s dome! We were the only campers on the campground the two days that we were there but the dome has quite a lot of space away from the other sites so it wouldn’t have mattered otherwise. We were surprised by so many materials that were already provided on the site. As a previous review stated, you could arrive missing a few things and be just fine! I was a bit hesitant about the compost toilet but it is very clean. The campground is very quiet and the view is beautiful. It is the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. I’ve recommended it to multiple people and am so excited to return.

Glamping in Fantastic Geodesic Dome
My partner and I enjoyed our stay in the dome tent. The bed was comfy and we thought the fireplace was a lovely touch. Our favorite part was stargazing. It was beautiful!

Tent/RV Site 1 - mid hill
I’m actually rating Site 4, in the woods. as Anna was so flexible and let us pick which available spot we preferred after arriving. We also booked that day and allowed us to book with her directly when it didn’t work in the system. There’s tons of space on site 4, and it can also be a bit tricking backing a camper on and out, but was very do-able. Her flexibility and willingness to work with us was so appreciated. And the composting bathroom was cleaner and smelled better than any outhouse or porta-potty I’ve been in before. It was quiet and peaceful. Pretty location. Would come back again!
