This 235 acre property, located in the Driftless Region, has been in our family for over 100 years.  From the wooded bluffs there are beautiful views of the Mississippi River and surrounding valleys.  We never tire of hiking in the woods, seeing many different kinds of wildlife, or seeing the beauty of nature in any season of the year. Learn more about this land: Wooded campsites on bluff top overlooking the Mississippi River. Hardwood forest offering hiking trails, bird and wildlife watching. Convenience store, public boat landing and Mississippi River Trail bicycle route within a mile of the property.  You can either take a 20 minute hike to the campsite or if conditions are dry we can give you a ride in our Ranger for a small fee. The trail does get steep in a few areas and the hike can be strenuous for some campers. NO smoking or alcohol.

Amazing spot
Amazing campsite! The hike up was a challenge which made the whole experience even better, the view at the end is stunning! At night, nature gives natural fireworks show with all the fireflies! In the morning the sunrise is breathtaking. Allen does a great job taking care of the land, very friendly and helpful! My dog and I had an incredible time and we felt safe the whole time! I recommend it!

A+ views, A+ host.
Amazing views! Al was super helpful and friendly. But it was also a very private camping experience. Be ready for a good uphill hike. The woods are wild, the views are majestic, and yet you can tell the property is well loved. Also, if you dont want to harvest your own wood, or hike, Al offered other services to make the trip more accessible. I had fun, and my kids had fun, everyone was safe and happy the whole time.

Allen’s land is picturesque. Located right on a bluff with access to spectacular elevated views of the Mississippi, this is a unique camping experience not usually afforded along the Mississippi.
