Nestled in the shade of giant bur oak trees, Shady Oaks is a restful retreat. Our campground offers one of the most unusual attractions in Iowa, "The Big Treehouse" and gardens. Campers of all ages may tour the 12-level, 55-foot plus structure (weather permitting and guide availability).
Shady Oaks is one of the oldest private campgrounds in Iowa (since 1850). It's story has been documented in the book "Quarter Mile Link." In 1996, as part of the Sesquicentennial celebration, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources named our stand of namesake trees to the Register of "Famous & Historic Trees."
