BEFORE BOOKING - if you are traveling with a dog be sure to message us BEFORE booking to make sure that we can accommodate you. IMMEDIATELY AFTER BOOKING please send a message introducing yourself and confirming how many are in your group and how large your camping set up is.

We live on just over 3 acres of land. Some of it is a flat grass area, some is hilly, and some has taller brush. From any of these camping areas you can see our home but not much else besides fields, brush, and grass - and the sky!

A train goes by a few times a day/night. We are located on a paved rural road, so while you will hear cars go by, there is no flow of constant traffic. We are located an easy two miles from a gas station and an easy 17-30 minute drive to Des Moines if you're looking to go into the city.

The land is former farm land but the house is a historical church rectory that was moved to this location several years ago.

Due to Social distancing we will not be able to meet guests in person but we are home.  We have shut down hosting indoor guests during this time as well so the only other people you may see are other campers.

The area we set up our tents is in full view of the roadway, so be aware of that. It was not an issue For us but may be for some. The host greeted us eventually and was very friendly and accommodating. She made certain we had everything we needed and then excused herself. We are very pleased with this site. And the roosters were a great alarm clock and definitely added so charm. Thanks again!

Leanne was very responsive to questions and a great host. The campsite is close to the road and cars will pass by occasionally. The trian was really loud, but it was all worth it. The spot was cute and easy to manage. It was a great comfort to have a responsive host especially in the current climate. Leanne offered to let me plug in my electronics in an outside plug while I was there, which was awesome. My favorite part was all the chicken statues and the parking signs. I had an amazing time staying here.

This is exactly what I wanted... somewhere to park my car and set up my tent for the night. This is what camping should be like, cheap and easy.

It's not super secluded, since the road is close by and the house is near, but that is made clear from the post. Potable water, electricity, super cute spot that I felt VERY safe in.
