The Timberghost lodge is approximately 20 minutes north of Burlington, Iowa, in Mediapolis. We are located in Zone 6 in SE Iowa in Des Moines County and have lease ground in Des Moines, Henry and Lee counties.
Please note these are averages and to plan for temps +/- 10 degrees to make sure you are prepared. Iowa weather changes drastically due to the fronts coming down from Canada during the fall and can have large temperature swings in a short time frame during season.
September into late October we typically have 6-9 guests in camp, after that we normally have 8-12 guests in camp at any given time.
All hunt costs include food, lodging, drinks, field prep, travel to and from your hunting areas, and guiding. Things that are not included but to keep in my mind are 7% Iowa Sales Tax, shipping of meat, antlers, and cape, and gratuities for staff if you choose to do so.
Non-Hunting guests are welcome but do incur an additional charge of $250 per day.
