Welcoming, beautiful sites off 80!
LOVED staying at Shady Brook! I was road tripping from Colorado to Illinois, and this was the perfect stop off 80 to spend the night. Brenda was so helpful in explaining the site layout, and was so wonderfully friendly. Everything is well established and well maintained. I stayed at Site 3, in my tent with my dog, and watched the lightning bugs glow around the woods surrounding me. There’s even a POOL I didn’t get a chance to swim in! Definitely bringing my swim suit next time :)
Tent Camping at Shady Brook was a welcome respite on my trek across the country. I was able to car camp at the tent site and enjoy a walk around the grounds. The bathroom/shower was super clean. Tent sites 1-10 are more centrally located to the bathrooms/pool/playground/pavillion, so if you're looking for more privacy, reserve sites 11 or up.
The best! i will be back!
If you want to know where to find Heaven on Earth, it's here in Iowa at Shady Brook! The hosts Brenda and Dave are simply shy of AMAZING! Jerry the groundskeeper is by far the coolest! This is by far my new camping home away from home. I will be back as often as possible!
We were getting in super late and host was very accommodating and helpful. Great spot and you could see everyone was really enjoying themselves at their different sites. Thank you!
Lovely land, gracious hosts
Everything was very well kept, and I was delighted to have a tent space near the creek. My short stay here was a real escape from more hectic parts of my trip... Great place!
Great campground right off of I-80. I enjoyed camping along the creek and walking the grounds before heading to bed. Also the hosts were extremely kind and welcoming. I’ll definitely be back
