Our property and profile are in constant change as we are in a stage of development, but we look to share our land with those seeking to enjoy a warm, welcome environment for those fellow wanderers, outdoor enthusiasts, vagabonds, and globetrotters. I am a well-traveled backpacker myself and share 5 1/2 acres with my father here in a bustling little touristy town. We enjoy the company of those who endorse small footprint, sustainable practices and I eventually intend to create an eco-hostel from the conversion of our 100 year old barn. All we ask is that you respect the property, our neighbors, and make an effort to add one more new friend before you depart.

Natural features you'll find at Tumbleweed Base Camp in Minnesota.
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We had a quick but great stay at Logan's place. The directions were easy to follow, and he was very welcoming and helpful in showing us around. The space he is building is really incredible - we wish we could have stayed longer with more people! We would definitely recommend staying at his place, both if just passing through or as a base camp when spending more time in the area.
Tumbleweed base camp is da best!
Can't say enough good things about Logan and Tumbleweed Base Camp! Logan is a Prince among camping hosts! Very good communication throughout the booking, camping and checking out process. He answered texts immediately and was noting but accommodating. We didn't pull in until about 9:30PM. He was waiting for us and helped us find our spot get parked in complete darkness. The campground itself is beautiful. Lots of trees and there is an old barn that Logan is remodeling. It is a common space that he lets the campers use. It has a ping pong table, bumper pool table, and many other games for campers to enjoy. We stayed there because our kids had a mountain bike race at Detroit Mountain. It was a 5 minute bike ride to the single track. Book with Tumbleweed Base camp you won't be disappointed.
First hip camp experience
My sister and I needed a last minute place to crash while driving cross country. We quickly chose tumbleweed base camp, and I’m so glad we did. It felt safe and private. Logan was quick to respond to our request and communicated so wonderfully the whole time. His father met us as soon as we drove in and gave us the lay of the land, he was so warm and welcoming! Would definitely stay here again!
The hosts, the property, the location, the barn - everything was great, and all combined for a really nice Hipcamp experience. It’s a beautiful piece of land in a quiet, rolling location that is nevertheless close to the city of Detroit Lakes (although you would never guess that you were anywhere near a city), and only ~1/4 mile from the Detroit Mountain Recreation Area (mountain biking, skiing, et cetera). The hosts, Logan and his dad, are very personable and accommodating, and Logan treated me to a tour of the site’s highlight, a work-in-progress c.~1927 barn that they are renovating into a game-room/ gathering spot. Overall, while you may be better off looking elsewhere if you’re after a KOA/ Jellystone Park camping experience, or a place to bring your 40’ Winnebago for full hookups, it’s ideal for someone looking for a quiet , laid-back semi-rustic camping experience.
