About
Immerse yourself in the rich heritage and tranquil beauty of a unique vineyard and winery expanse, just a stone's throw from the vibrant heart of Iowa's university town and nestled against the serene backdrop of Old Man's Creek. Here, RV camping transcends the ordinary, offering a peaceful retreat amidst the echoing charm of history and the inviting warmth of a family legacy that has flourished over the centuries. Situated a mere 7 miles off I-80 with easy access via a well-maintained road that leads adventurers down a picturesque mile of gravel to our welcoming gates, this destination promises an unparalleled RV camping experience just 14 miles from the buzz of the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics, the electrifying Hawkeyes Kinnick Football Stadium, and a short 13-mile journey from the enchanting Kalona Historical Village. Drawing roots deep into the late 1890s, this land radiates stories of times gone by, with foundations laid by the Hess family, driven by the pioneering spirit of Vicki's great-grandparents. It's not merely the land that connects visitors to a vivid past, but also the soulful waters of Old Man's Creek, a childhood playground and a lifetime neighbor to generations of stewards who have cherished and nurtured this land. In 2005, the planting of the first grape vines marked the beginning of a new chapter, blossoming with the collective efforts of family, friends, and the community into a flourishing vineyard. With each vine nurtured and each grape harvested, a shared journey unfolded, binding the past with the present, and sowing the seeds for future pleasures in every bottle of wine produced on these grounds. As you cozy up in your RV beneath a canopy of stars, you're invited to savor the fruit of labor transformed into exquisite wines, a testament to the passion and traditions that have aged as gracefully as the wines themselves. The vineyard not only offers an escape into nature but also a taste of the local craftsmanship and the joy of a community brought together by the love of the land. This is a haven where the echoes of laughter from past harvests mingle with today's peaceful serenity, inviting RV campers to partake in the legacy of a land where history, nature, and the art of winemaking converge. Welcome to an RV camping experience where each sunset over the vineyard is a reminder of the beauty of simplicity and the richness of life itself.
