This is home, a realization of a lifelong dream of living in the country.  The land is magical.  Our animals are our family.   Learn more about this land: If you like privacy you'll love our 200 acre haven.  Come up the long driveway the spacious view of the open hay field.  Camp in the open or tucked away in the trees.  You choose the spot as long as it's not in the horse pasture, cow pasture when cows are in, or in the hay field when hay is long before it's cut.  Hay field would be off limits roughly late June to Mid July during optimal growth time and cutting.    We are a 20 minute drive from the North Entrance to Itasca State Park and the Headwaters of the Mississippi.  Also LaSalle Lake Recreation Area is only about six or seven miles down the road.

It was quiet and a beautiful place to stay. There was fog that came in the morning that was quickly gone by sunrise. There were horses here that were really nice to watch and mostly kept to themselves. It was a really cool place to camp it roughing. It is an ideal place to get away from civilization.

Great, informal spot near Bemidji
Wow, this was a particularly cool Hipcamp experience. It took me a few minutes messaging with Terry to understand that these hosts are EXTREMELY flexible and accommodating about where to camp on their property - Pretty much, if you can get there and it's not inside one of the houses or a horse pasture, you can camp there. So, it was actually kind of daunting to commit to a spot. I took a little while to decide, before finally settling behind the huge, beautiful garden near one of the main houses. There was absolute privacy, total peace and quiet, and a wonderful sunset over the fields. This is a bring-everything-in, bring-everything-out camping situation. Plan accordingly. There's no porta-pottie even. I'm hoping they are hosting again next summer; I already have big plans to sleep near the hay barn next summer!

A nice, private camp spot that was not too far away from the beautiful Itasca state park!

This was my first time using hipcamp and I was so pleased to find this lovely place. Felt very lucky to have spent the evening in an open meadow surrounded by woods. The hay had been mowed so we could have camped anywhere.

Boondock in a hay field
Your own private hay field, no road noise but the sound of wind and a distant loon. Perfect hipcamp!

starry sky, horses & good memories
We loved this place. The lack of bathroom and water was nothing compared with the beauty of our memories. The horses, the sunshine and the sunrise, the starry sky, all made a magic adventure. Thank you Terry for providing this remarkable moment!

Peaceful and beautiful.
We had the most wonderful stay! We parked our Solis on the edge of the hayfield next to the trees. It was incredibly quiet and serene. We saw Sandhill cranes and a golden eagle in the evening and in the morning a flock of 17 wild turkeys came quite close to our van. We also saw a half dozen magpies. Such a treat to see all these birds that we seldom see in NE Minnesota.

Terry was great and very nice. Where to set up a tent was a little confusing but Terry said she plans to put up signs for future campers. The horses were great, the sunset was amazing. Mosquitoes were bad but expected. Would definitely camp here again.

Quiet, peaceful, beautiful place to spend the night. Great place to recharge after several nights in crowded RV parks.

Really awesome little farm with horses keeping us company through the night. Lots of mosquitoes so bring repellent!

First the facts, then the details. Facts: The driving directions were clear and easy. The space is super simple. There are two small houses near a circle drive and a horse barn/pasture off to the left. To the right of the circle there’s a well maintained lawn and a run down old barn which we did not explore. Beyond all that there is a large open field of flowers lined by groves of trees on the property line. Other fields surrounded ‘our’ field behind the trees, so it felt quite private. The host told us we could camp close to that barn where the grass was mowed or basically anywhere that wasn’t directly in the front yard or in the horses space. Details: This space could be vastly improved with access to a garden hose/drinking water situation. It wasn’t a huge deal, but it’s def inconvenient to have to bring in water. We drove through the field to the middle/far side and just pitched our tent. It’s not private, like with barriers, it’s private because you’re just so far, but completely out in the open under the prairie sky. The field was absolutely blooming with flowers and knee high grass, which is visually idyllic and lovely. It would make pretty pictures for insta if you’re into that. Practically though, we stepped out of the car into a cloud of insects in the early evening. Less biting, more buzzing, but overwhelming anyway. We frantically pitched our tent and stressed a little, but after we stopped stirring them up, it was a very moderate bug situation (for a Minnesota evening). We sat out and watched the sunset and grilled and it was nice. I say this not to warn you off, but to wait 10 minutes before you freak. It’s fine; lots of butterflies and crickets. If you can’t deal, camp on the mowed grass. There is no bathroom of any kind. This was entirely fine for us, but it’s not for everyone.

Great Stay!
In a jam with COVID restrictions and Terry delivered. Price is right and space is more than accommodating. The horses were beautiful to boot. Location was easy to find. Would stay again.

We loved staying out at Terry's beautiful place! Her property was s beautiful. She has the sweetest horses who loved coming up and saying hi to us. There were many areas on the property for camping; we chose the freshly mowed field by the horse pasture. We loved hiking the property and checking out the woods in back. It was a beautiful relaxing getaway that we can't recommend enough!
