Location update as of 09/14/22….Harvest is in full swing directly around us. Ours neighbors have a very large farm operation across our road. They do tend to go late into the evening and sometimes all night. So please be aware. Be aware for large farm machinery on our country and gravel roads. Give them space and be courteous. They cannot always see you as the machinery has gotten very large and wide. We do have 3 new goats on our property. They are pretty skittish being in a new and unfamiliar place. Hopefully they will warm-up fast to us and our property. A country setting very conveniently located off I-80. Very close to the Outlets at Williamsburg. 10 minutes to the Amana Colonies, 25 minutes to Coralville/Iowa City area and 35 minutes to the Cedar Rapids area. Also 30 mins from the Amish community of Kalona with lots of interesting things to see. Very quiet setting with lots of trees and nicely mowed grass. Pets should be on leash or tie out as we do have free range chickens on our 5.6 acre property. The lane can be soft in the early spring with the thaw and rain. I do have a mobile fire ring if interested. I do have 3 50 amp plugs available. The plugs are kind of close together. So true boondockers will have more privacy. Suggested Local Attractions:Amana Colonies, Outlets at Williamsburg, Cedar Rapids/Iowa City metro areas. Kalona(a mostly Amish based community 25 mins to the south) has lots of neat stores.

Small town country family Details: We are a small town country family that enjoys the simple life in the country. We enjoy the peace and quiet in the Iowa country side. We are surrounded by corn and bean fields. Our location does get busy in the early spring with field work and in the fall with harvest. Home Town: We enjoy visiting the local restaurants and going to the Amana Colonies. They have very good food and a lot of different beers and root beer. There is a lot of history and little shops to visit as well. Fireside Winery is just to the north a few miles and have great wine. Favorite Boondocking Locations: Haven’t gotten into boondocking yet. Still relatively new to the camping world. Skills or Expertise to Share: I just enjoy meeting new people and camping has become such a large hobby….we figured why not? We are still newer to the camping world but always open to learning and finding new adventures.

    The host is beyond friendly, the area is quiet farmland with seasonal activity for farming. The rooster is a reliable alarm clock (we had our windows open all night). I will stay again if I am in the area.

    Beautiful setting with nothing but the sounds of cicadas, the tapping of woodpeckers, and the gentle bleating of young goats amidst the distant rooster crows. Level site with 50 amp hookup and very kind hosts! Will make it a point to stay here again when in the area.

    We didn’t have a chance to chat with the Host, they were heading out as we were pulling in. The location was extremely convenient off I-80. The property was very nice, very quiet in farmland. We were just stopping for some much needed rest after a long day of driving, highly recommend this stop!

    Sterling is an excellent host. We had a wonderful stay. The spaces are far enough from the house and just outside their fenced back yard giving a real sense of quiet. Will stay again.
