Spacious and beautiful!!!
Daniel was super friendly and super knowledgeable a pleasure to talk to and beautiful land. The berry juice they gave us was really yummy and different. My family and I were already talking about coming back. My daughter in law fell in love with "Red" the beautiful horse. Great weekend would definitely recommend to anyone.

First time camping here… Beautiful.
We had a great time staying at Dan and Jana’s… they have an absolute beautiful property! Little “sketchy” getting travel trailers into certain areas, but what the heck… camping is an adventure right… lol… great people, great property…

NRPines Camper at River Farm
My 8 year old son and I spent two nights on Dans land, and had a great time. Dan is a great guy who saw to all of our needs. The camper was comfortable and the property was beautiful with plenty to do and explore. We will definitely be coming back!

Hosts are excellent and accommodating. Had firewood, brought 5 gallons of water to us, asked were we wanted the picnic table and fire ring. Had a porty potty available. Red the horse is very nice. Should weather have turned nasty, had accomadations available. Very quiet and peaceful. Excellent spot for hammocks. Would go again

NRPines Camper at River Farm
Peaceful, pretty farm
My grandkids and I stayed here for a night on our way home from Minnesota. Daniel met us upon arrival and showed me how everything worked in the camper. The camper was nice and it was clean. Daniel brought us a big jug of potable water. All the kitchen supplies we needed were available. My grandson was thrilled to sleep in the loft bed with my granddaughter on the bed beneath him. My bed was quite comfortable. Looking out of the camper door, it is a pleasure to view a field of a variety of wild flowers. We walked down to the pond and the kids were very excited to take the paddle boat for a spin. We used that paddle boat twice while there. I preferred the kayak myself! The pond was just big enough that it was fun for all of us to get out on the boats, but small enough I was comfortable letting the kids take the paddle boat out on their own. Daniel provided life jackets of various sizes for us. The kids loved all the frogs, including a very friendly bullfrog who was hanging out on top of the canoe our first night there! I enjoyed watching the crazy thunderstorm clouds blow in and then a glimpse of a pretty sunset once the quick storm passed through. In the morning, it was peaceful to sit outside drinking coffee, looking over the wildflower field.
