Gilles Family Dairy & Woodland

4 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents100 acres · Houston, MN
Welcome ; Located in southeast Minnesota's Driftless region of hills, valleys, fields and forests, we are a grass based working dairy farm with over 100 acres of woodland, including an extensive trail system and campsites in our wooded acres. What makes this woodland special is it's quiet, secluded setting and over 6 miles of hiking / skiing trails. Our farmstead sits three quarter of a mile off the paved county highway on our well maintained gravel driveway. Each of our campsites are secluded from the others with their own sawdust compost toilets, picnic tables, fireplaces, and firewood. Two of our sites require 4WD with a minimum of 6 inches ground clearance to access, and two are accessible with 2WD. If you do not have 4WD we can help transport your gear while you enjoy the walk in. There are plenty of woodland birds, deer, turkeys, raccoons and squirrels sharing the woods with you. At night it is common for owls to visit the campsite area to say hello, and coyotes talking in the distance. The winding trails through 100 acres of woodland offer a variety of woodland habitats, from Old growth Maple to mixed hardwood, to dense brush, to the edges of open pastureland. Bring your fat bike or mountain bike for an enjoyable ride. For winter users there is a mix of easy, moderate, and challenging winter cross country skiing or snowshoeing / hiking on the property. However the Rock Bottom Cabin is our only heated and insulated site and is available for winter booking. Winter access is walk in only with snow on the ground or in the forecast. We can help transport gear. This property is part of a working pasture-based dairy farm and guided tours of the dairy and cattle are available when scheduling allows. Children 12 and younger are free at our campsites. No need to be counted as guests , but please let us know when requesting to book. We do not allow non-booked visitors to our campsites due to the secluded, remote location, and accessibility.

Aefintyr

13 sites · Lodging, Tents14 acres · Altura, MN
Aefintyr is a campground located on Whiskey Hill in the Whitewater River Valley near the town of Elba, MN. The land was used for personal recreation for several years. I've spent countless hours hiking and enjoying observing the seasons, plants, fungus and animals. The vision of a campground was inspired by many camping and backcountry spots throughout the United States, all of the amazing things in the woods, the beautiful blufftop valley views, proximity to a multitude of outdoor activities and adventures. Camps are spacious, secluded and designed to immerse guests in the surrounding woodland.

Twin Folk Farms

3 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents120 acres · Hager City, WI
Previously a 100 acre century farm, this fertile land was tended to by generations of old time farmers. Their dairy cows pastured in areas which we now graze sheep.  The restored quarry provided gravel for the nearby highway restoration and local projects.The property is currently a mix of hay ground, cropland, pasture, forest, and quarry. Twin sisters, Darla and Kayla, and their families live across the road from each other and own the surrounding 140 acres. They keep busy planting/tending trees, making hay, moving fence for grazing animals, operating a farm business called Twin Folk Farms (pastured meat, camps, etc), and raising their families.Learn more about this land:- This site is at the edge of a restored quarry, sheep pasture, and wooded hillside.- The site is tucked down a flat mowed path, so it feels very private and protected. - You can hike up a path to the sheep pasture. Sometimes sheep are there, sometimes elsewhere on the farm. You can hike the other direction and check out the restored quarry. We have paths all around the property, so feel free to respectfully explore.- You can't see the highway from this site, but you can hear it. It's super handy to be able to hop out of your campsite haven and onto the hwy, but be aware that you will hear vehicles.- There's a Mississippi river boat launch a few miles down the road, so feel free to park your boat at the bottom of the quarry driveway.- The Hay Creek riding trails are 25 minutes away, so contact us if you want to set up a place in the quarry to park your horses and trailer for the night. - We are certified to sell meat straight off of the farm (Twin Folk Farms), so contact us if you want to purchase your meat and have it delivered to your campsite. You can also set up a time to come up to the farm and purchase meat. - The beautiful, historic town of Red Wing is 10 minutes from our farm.

Cabins near Rochester guide

Overview

Southern Minnesota is ripe with opportunity for campers and city visitors alike, where Rochester offers wooded areas, fresh rivers, trail systems, and plenty of elbow room just north of the border with Iowa. Wildlife is prevalent, and birdwatchers can catch glimpses of many species along the Zumbro River and the 80 miles of connected trails frequented by hikers, bikers, and runners. While the Quarry Hill Trails are among the favorites, Silver Lake has wonderful walking paths and bike rentals, while Fox Trails Park is ideal for walking solo or with a dog. RV parks and campgrounds are easy to find on the town’s outskirts and at nearby hot spots like Lake Pepin and Whitewater State Park.

Where to go

Whitewater State Park

About 30 minutes south of Rochester, scenic Whitewater State Park is known for its limestone bluffs, trout fishing, and hiking trails. Visitors can camp in the park's campgrounds and head out for birdwatching and wildlife viewing. The Whitewater Wildlife Management Area also provides opportunities for hunting and nature exploration.

Chester Woods Park:

Situated about 20 minutes southeast of Rochester, Chester Woods Park is a beautiful county park with camping facilities, hiking trails, and a lake for fishing and boating.

Lake Pepin

Located about 1.5 hours southeast of Rochester, Lake Pepin is all about water activities such as boating, fishing, and sailing. Visitors can find camping options in nearby campgrounds to take in stellar views of the lake.

Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park

One hour’s drive south of Rochester, this park offers camping facilities and guided tours of the famed Mystery Cave. Visitors can explore the park's historic buildings, hike the trails, and learn about the natural and cultural history of the area.

Myre-Big Island State Park

Located about 30 minutes west of Rochester, Myre-Big Island State Park offers camping facilities and recreational activities such as hiking, birdwatching, and fishing. The park also has a golf course and archery range for extra fun.

When to go

Visiting Rochester is fun throughout the entire year with outdoor activities varying by season. Summer is the busiest season and for good reason—June through September offers great weather when RV parks and campgrounds are all open. Hiking, biking, and watersports are best during the summer and fall months as well. Experiencing the art centers, museums, and historic sites of the Rochester area can be done even in winter, when the town decorates and celebrates the holiday season. Snowshoe and cross country ski trails are excellent for snowy escapes, and the town embraces winter sports like hockey and ice skating too.
