I thought the same. I love guineas. I had then when I was young and have lots of stories about them.

Interesting enough everyone here has lots of lights on all night on their trailers. Many folks not only left them on all night but all day as well. This is very different than most campgrounds I have been to.

The other thing I learned is people camping in Iowa know how to back their trailers. It's no fun watching folks try to back in here they either nail it first time in the dark or only have to move to be more level. Arrivals were all between 930 and 1030pm so they are doing it in the dark as well. It took me 2 tries but then I had to move because the site has a large crown.Attachment 203736Attachment 203737
You learn how to drive and handle trailers at a young age in Iowa. Where at in Iowa was this?

I thought they learned early in KS/MO but the folks I know are more city than country.

Its Lake Red Rock. Whitebreast campground. Very well kept, good views, friendly folks, and great camp hosts. Not to far from the Sprint car capital...lots to see and do there. I was would go back.

Indeed. The tulip festival in Pella is always worth a side trip.

Yes it is, record or not! LOL


And if the moderators want to merge threads, here's your chance:


The TICK thread people need to know about Guineas. Guineas will eat about forty elebben dozen gazillion ticks per day. Therefore, all those in that thread worried about ticks in the pine needles (they love pine needles), just get rid of all those dogs that you travel with, and get you a passel of Guineas.


I assure you, there will be no more ticks, if you let them out daily.


However, the noise at night MIGHT open yet another complaint thread.

I love them. Loud? Yes, but so am I. They are fun to watch especially with chicks. I ain’t sure you can raise them here without caging them. The fire ants kill all the ground nesting stuff.

Yes. I hate fire ants. Only difference over ticks is you know instantly when they get on you....and you can usually see where they are.

So I was in Ohio driving a F-350 pulling a 25’ gooseneck trailer 2 axle -8 tires on trailer.
I see several guineas in the two lane state highway. It flashes in my head what my father always said.

He said “you can’t hit a guinea. We swerved and ran as fast as we could
-they just dodged our tires”.

So what I do ? I speed up ? I couldn’t believe what happened next. I must of killed every one of them ?? Nothing but feathers and dead guineas in the road?? I seriously thought I would not hit them !!

Now what I failed to think about: Dad was driving a Model T Ford with 4 maybe 3” wide tires. On a gravel road. He maybe running 25 Mph. I had 12 tires and some of them double wide. Now I know some will take this wrong but my dad has passed on when I did this. I laugh every time I tell this story and I think my dad saw me do this and is laughing too

I had a guy with me: he say why you do that. I’m laughing so hard I’m crying telling him what my dad always said. He got to laughing so hard he was crying !!

Note: this did not happen in an RV Park. But it’s a story for thread ??

You gotta try the Dutch letters, the Almond log, the Windmill cookies, etc. Just about everything that looks Dutch.

They are right on the square (south side if I remember right).

Yep.. we've been there a few (thousand) times... LOL.

Jaarsma's is a staple. Used to go every year with my grandparents. I could have cared less about the tulips. Bakery was the real attraction.
