This is a very private, peaceful spot with a beautiful view of the river. There are many nice amenities such as a covered dining area and very fancy fire pit. I wish I had had a chance to try out the kayaks! As an overnight stop on a multi-day road trip, the close proximity of the Lake Wobegon Trail was a huge bonus as a safe place to stretch my dog’s and my legs after hours in the car.

Such a beautiful spot! Tim was so kind when we had car trouble and had to stay a bit longer than planned.

We can't wait to come back.

We loved this spot and so did our dog! Everything was thoughtfully placed and the kayaks were really fun to use. We unfortunately got rained out in the early morning and had to pack up quickly, but the evening beforehand was peaceful and beautiful :) Thanks for a great getaway from the cities, Timothy!

Perfect for group camping! Saw beavers, herons, and eagles. Firewood was really dry and the extra personal touches were appreciated. Host communicated well and when I asked for more firewood, he was there within the hour!

Awesome campsite. Tim was great. It rained cats and dogs and we still had a blast. The space he put together is thoughtful, playful and fun. Will come back!

My wife and I tent-camped on Tim's site for three nights and had a wonderful time. The campsite is large and very secluded, right on the river, with many cute birdhouses decorating the surrounding trees. There's a charcoal grill and a nice fire pit, which we used each night. The weather wasn't ideal for kayaking, so we didn't tour the river, but I did make use of the hammock for an afternoon nap. If you bring your bikes, it's an easy 5 minute walk/ride to the Lake Wobegon Trail, which heads right into Melrose. While we enjoyed the remoteness, you can see the highway in the distance, and there is definitely road noise, especially if the wind is from the west, but after a while it just became background white noise and didn't really bother us at all. Tim has done a great job with the site and we highly recommend it. It was nice for just the two of us, but it would also be fun for a larger family or group. We'll definitely come back.

Excellent spot. Very peaceful and many amenities. Sure, close to the highway but it’s kind of a white noise.
