There are many places in Iowa where you can savor the great outdoors. If you like the woods, hiking, fishing or camping, Iowa has plenty of amazing spots to pick from. But one spot in particular stands out from the pack.

John 15 Vineyard is located in Scranton, which is in Greene County, about an hour west of Ames. Visitors can fish, kayak, and enjoy the scenery at Vineyard Pond, purchase grapes and other grape products like jams, jellies and pies, and guests also have access to an 18-hole "pitch & putt" golf course.

But the feature that stands out the most is actually above ground. Nestled within a private timbered area, the treehouse at John 15 Vineyard affords one of the most unique camping experiences in Iowa.

Treehouse amenities include:

  • Tent that sleeps up to 8 persons
  • Fire pit with swing-out grate and firewood
  • Picnic tables
  • Portable toilet
  • Use of Vineyard Pond
  • Water for hand and dish washing
  • Shower facilities in the Conference/Event Center

This looks like a great place that kids and adults can each enjoy. Leashed pets are allowed, too! Click here to get rates and reserve your spot! Do you know of any other unique camping spots in Iowa? Comment below to tell us about them.
