Any Iowa adventurer would love to discover the Loess Hills Hideaway tucked into one of the Hawkeye State's most underrated regions.
There are seven different cottages and cabins at this campground, and each one offers a cozy stay in the hills.
The Homestead Cabin is perfect for families. This large, two-bedroom cabin sleeps six! You'll find a modern interior, full kitchen, private bathroom with shower, and even a washer and dryer. Book the Homestead for a weekend of "glamping" that everyone will enjoy. Dinner cooked on the charcoal grill and enjoyed on the outdoor picnic table is the perfect way to wrap up a night in nature.
The bright and cheerful Cottage Cabin is also great for a family getaway, and it can accommodate up to seven guests.
You'll find a queen bed, a double, a single and a hide-a-bed that folds out to a double. Like the Homestead Cabin, the Cottage features a full kitchen and bathroom, as well as a washer/dryer. The large yard with a grill and picnic table is perfect for outdoor games.
For a smaller group, the newly renovated Lodge may be the perfect escape. This rustic cabin is perfect for up to four adventurers.
The Lodge is a remote and isolated cabin - you'll feel truly on your own. It's a great spot for hunters to relax, and the taxidermy on the wall will remind you that you're truly in the wilderness. The brand new kitchen and full bathroom provide luxuries that are typically hard to find out in the woods.
For more rustic accommodations, rent out Cabin #1! It was renovated a few years ago and you'll feel right at home here.
Four people can make this their home, sleeping on the queen bed and standard bunk bed. Get cozy in the cabin living room with a comfortable recliner in front of the TV. Indoor dining is possible thanks to the kitchenette. You can also enjoy a fire pit, charcoal grill, and outdoor seating. This rustic getaway does not have indoor plumbing.
Cabin #2 is tucked into the treeline and features breathtaking views of the hills.
One double bed and three twin beds make this a great family getaway. You'll find a kitchenette and cozy living room here. It's a great way to blend outdoor time with indoor fun.
You'll find another cabin large enough for a family in Cabin #3.
Cabin #3 has the same accommodations as Cabin #2, with a different view and surrounding forest. There are trailheads right near the yard, so Cabin #2 is a great place for an outdoor escape.
Cabin #4 is the last of the primitive cabins, and sleeps up to four people.
One queen bed and one bunk bed allow for plenty of room for a small group getaway. You'll find a kitchenette with everything needed to cook a camping meal here, as well as an outdoor deck, grill, grill, and porch seating.
If you stay in Cabins 1 through 4, you won't have indoor plumbings in your cabin. However, you'll have easy access to the modern bathhouse.
Here, you'll find toilets, showers, a washer and dryer, and double sinks to wash your dishes. These cabins are the perfect blend of modern and rustic.
Spend some time getting to know the beautiful Loess Hills this year and you'll learn to appreciate the natural beauty of the Hawkeye State.
