Firefly Creek Ranch: Peaceful views and cornstalk whispers

General

  • Secluded campground with views of Iowa countryside near Guthrie Center
  • A 10-minute drive to Lake Panorama; Springbrook State Park 20 minutes
  • Peaceful site on a farm with professional kitchen, hens and horses

Firefly Creek Ranch is a peaceful, farm-style gathering and retreat center with grass and hardstanding camping fields in glorious Iowa countryside. This is a great place for small groups or families, with free-range chickens and ducks wandering the campground, and horses grazing in neighboring fields.

Facilities at this serene spot include showers and a restroom block, and a TV room to relax in, as well as a fully equipped commercial kitchen (an extra charge applies) so bring your own food and cook up something really special, or spark up the barbecue back at your site – you can pick up basics in Guthrie Center convenience stores.

Other local amenities include golf (a five-minute drive), horseback riding (20 minutes) and fishing for bass on the Middle Racoon river (10 minutes). Springbrook State Park (20 minutes) is an all-year-round destination with skiing in winter, plus rock climbing, mountain biking and rafting in summer.
