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.

Winter Canvas Hot Tent
Fireside in a Snow Covered Yurt
I love this little corner of the Midwest, and the heated Yurt was a great place to nestle away and enjoy it in another season. Nothing is cozier than the warmth and sounds of a wood-burning stove. We loved watching the flames' shadows dance on the canvas. Heated bathrooms, drinking water, and miles of trails are easily accessible. We'll surely be back.

Treehouse Cabin in the Bluffs
Great year round spot!
Even the drive there is full of great scenery. This area is stunning, it was beautiful for taking a morning walk. We loved the cabin, really enjoyed the bunk beds because even as adults my husband and I are really just grown children that still enjoy picking a bunk! It was toasty warm when we arrived, a very nice spot to disconnect but still enjoy modern convenience. It is close to the road so do know that you do get traffic sounds. I like traffic noise so didn鈥檛 bother us a bit. The little touches were fantasic- poprcorn and oatmeal available, big fluffy towels, very pretty quilts! Shower/bathroom house is very clean and well kept! It is warm and toasty while you shower and shower is very spacious. Chelsi was fantastic to work with and so friendly! We would love to come again if we get some snow this year for a fun (true) winter time retreat. This would be an ideal spot to sip cocoa and view the sky from the sky windows. There is virtually no light pollution, incredibly dark and clear at night.

Bell Tent Rustic Hike-in Glamping 3
Quiet hill top amongst fields/trees
Wonderful site perched on top of a hill. The canvas tent for three was spacious and clean. Our dog loved the tent window where he watched the outdoors. There were no mosquitos and the campsites are far apart and private. The star gazing area next to the soybean farm was wonderful.

Outdoor Bed Hike-in Camp - Celtis
Enchanting Stay
We had a wonderful getaway in the Celtis outdoor bed site. The hike up the bluff was a bit steeper than we anticipated, but each time we did it, it got easier. One night, we got back around twilight and the fireflies guided us up the trail. The bed was really comfortable and it was so luxurious to be able to go to sleep with the crickets and owls and wake up watching the sunrise and the woodpeckers. The stars were incredible and it was very private and secluded. You can hear the road below but we got used to it. The site has all of the amenities needed - including bottled drinking water and collected rainwater and a very clean compostable toilet. It is so close to Whitewater State Park and the town of Elba is great - we love Mauer Bros! Chelsi was extremely responsive and helpful from the start to the end and she has put a lot of work into making Aefintyr a special place.
