Our Hipcamp business is run by our three youngest kids. Braxtyn is currently 15, Braden is 12 and Tristan is 11.

Peaceful farm paradise
This is an idyllic, perfect spot and we wanted to live out there. The view is lovely and peaceful, the site is quaint and thoughtful, and the host was gracious and communicative. The rope swing is awesome and the pond is an added bonus to the beautiful and enjoyable recreation area. One of the best places I’ve spent an Iowa night under the stars.
Beautiful, rustic, fun!
This site was wonderful! Above and beyond our expectations! We loved our stay here. The site is well kept, private & beautifully located in the heart of Iowa’s farmland. We had so much fun swimming in the pond and having bonfires under the stars.
Is this heaven, or is it iowa!?!
Outdoor shower perfect for cleaning dreds fast and well. Clean pond. Rope swing sturdy and safe. Hosts gave us space and also welcomed us into wonderful conversations. The kids made this campsite feel like a palace. Many flat spots for tent set up. Hammocks already up for us to relax. Fire going upon arrival. Bath Tub you can fill with hose from outdoor faucet. Sun heats water through the day if you are a warm bath-er, cold water from well perfect for an icy invigorating inflammation reducing bath of help with sun fatigue. Pail with dish scrubby is @ water station. Tree Temple. Many rocks, platforms, swinging bench to meditate on. Frog conversations that shake your gizzard. Prairie flowers to color therapy your mind,heart, and soul. CBD non-pshycoactive farm that breathes with the tree temple. God everywhere.
The campsite was perfect - picturesque and comfortable grounds to camp on and the host was incredibly helpful and friendly! Outhouse and shower were kept up with thoughtful touches and we had everything we needed to build a fire. Would definitely camp here again if I ever pass through again and highly recommend to all!
Best campsite ever!
My partner and I have been road tripping the past few weeks through many states and different campsites. This corner of our trip was hands down the most beautiful, fun, and welcoming part of it. Chad and his kind family have the most beautiful farm, which features a lot of open space, a beautiful swimmable lake, and great views of starry night. Perfect for any size group and camping fans. Highly recommend!!!!!
