In 1961, Ted's parents bought this farm. Over the years, the arable land has been sold but we retained the wooded area which is crossed twice by a stream. About 20 years ago, a 60 acre county park was created to the south and west. The property is bordered on two sides by this county park. When Ted was in high school, the family sold the dairy cows and started a bare bones horseback riding ranch using trails in these woods as riding trails. We are very excited to host campers as a way to preserve and share this beautiful property.

Camping near Minneapolis with campfires guide

Overview

The twin cities metropolitan area is inundated with lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams, making it a camper's dream come true. Head over to Lower Lake and Lake Minnetonka on the west side of the city. You can wake up every morning with crystal clear blue waters just outside your tent door, early morning fishing, and kayaking. Carver Park Reserve located on the lake offers a campground, hiking trails, and historic sites.

If wine tastings or four-legged animals are your thing, you can camp at an equestrian center, convenient for a spur of the moment trail ride, or within a vineyard. For a blend of natural beauty and urban delight, camp closer to the city center where you can catch a show at Guthrie Theater, tour the Minneapolis Institute of Art, of explore the Mall of America. Plus, the Minnehaha Regional Park and Fort Snelling State Park lie within the city, which boast beautiful waterfalls, abundant hiking trails, and stunning lakes. Minneapolis is one of those rare cities where you can enjoy lush nature and city fun at the same time.
