Shady Brook is a beautiful getaway only 15 minutes from West Des Moines, IA.  We are not the normal “concrete” campground.  Our land offers plenty of wildlife along with the running Bear Creek and beautiful shade trees blooming with life.  We have walking trails to be explored, a shelter house for family and friends to gather, and an above ground pool for you and your loved ones to enjoy.

Shady Brook offers several camping experiences for your unique experience! We offer:

         -- Camp Trailer and RV camping sites

      -- Many tent sites

         -- A beautiful, relaxing cabin that rents by the night or the week

         -- Pool Side Retreat - conveniently located by our pool for your pleasure

         -- Tree Pod’ZZZs – get the luxury of sleeping in a tree in our Tree Pod’ZZZ, a floating bed allows you to get ZZZs in the trees

We have an abundance of white tail deer and offer hunting packages for experience hunters.   Contact us for more details.

Shady Brook’s owners Dave and Brenda look forward to meeting you! Our goal is to help you enjoy your stay to the fullest! Please feel free to let us know if we can help or answer any questions you have. 

We look forward to meeting you here at Shady Brook. We also hope that you come to experience the luxury of sleeping in a tree in our Tree Pod'zzz.
