Come walk or bike our emerald aisles! We have five miles of groomed trails that lead through state land to the Mud Hen Creek! Bring your kayak and pole! By the creek we have a few beaver lodges and so much wildlife to admire! As you trek along Silver Ridge Canyon, don't be surprised by the sudden flight of grouse along this trail! Visit Scout Hill for a sunny afternoon picnic; the cedar trees will lead you there. If you hear knocking, you will see Mr. Woodpecker enjoying his lunch on a nearby birch tree! Our campsites are nestled underneath a canopy of mixed wood forest. We have birch, poplar, maple, and a variety of pine. Nearby you will find our newly finished outhouse, complete with a portable shower and natural light. You will have access to parking near or next to your site with plenty of space to spread out and enjoy! Our property features a beautiful variety of trees and plenty of trails throughout our land with wildlife you might see or hear. It might be the hoot of an owl or the drum of a grouse! You will also hear the "buck wheat" and the "chee-chee" of our guineas calling for each other. Our beautiful forest is our main feature. Since 95% of our land is wooded, we enjoy the great beauty and majesty of the trees. See if you can find "Prince." This giant is hidden on the northeastern side of our property. His beautiful branches tower over our trails and we have cleared a spot there to rest. His lovely "Princess" is near the back of the main house. She is surrounded by strong pines that stand guard through our long cold winters. Our property extends, via trail, to state land and the Mud Hen Creek. The views are breathtaking! Please come and bring your family and friends! Our campsites' proximity would create a great weekend getaway for a retreat event or a family reunion, as well as a quiet romantic weekend! Off site: We have Long Lake public access 5.8 miles down our road. Mud Hen Lake, Half Moon Lake, Pleasant Lake, Elliot Lake (all with public access) are just a few within a 15 minute drive. We are also within an hour drive from either Duluth or Two Harbors. The Range Cities are charming and you could visit several in one day. Other wonderful things to do in this area are walking or biking the Mesabi Trail. The Redhead Mt. Bike Park is within 45 minutes. The Soudan Underground Mine will be open summer of 2024! There are many local museums, parks, and more to discover on the Iron Range! Here at home we raise chickens, ducks, and guinea fowl. We also have a Catahola Leopard dog named Hickory. She enjoys roaming our Luna Light Trails on the off season. When I was a child, I lived on a church camp property in Uruguay, South America. This plot of land had a grove of the most beautiful, tall, eucalyptus trees in the neighborhood. These trees were the home to Monk Parakeets. These small green parrots are the only members of the parrot family to build stick nests and to nest colonially. Needless to say, they were very loud, but one of my favorite childhood memories! This little plot on the Minnesota map has been our home for the last three and a half years. We have enjoyed our woods and so will you! ~ Taking reservations for summer 2024 ~

Perfect for quiet and read book.
This is our first campsite. Extremely friendly and makes us feeling safe. Love the nature, trails, and best spot to set for tent. Only thing I’m embarrassed to ask something I forget and she is very sweet to provide whenever needs. One con is mosquito- if you can handle it then you’re good. :) Definitely I will come back again! ((Highly recommend stay there. :)))

We had a great time staying at Patti's! We had a warm greeting on arrival and were gifted a small basket with some goodies. The trails were well maintained and great for some short walks in the woods. Outhouse was very cleanly as well. Found it was a nice, private way to camp as opposed to crowded campgrounds.

Definitely one of a kind 😊
My pup and I loved our stay! As a solo female camper, it can be a little daunting staying certain places but we felt so cozy and safe while also feeling tucked away from others. We had everything we needed plus more. Patty greeted us when we arrived and showed us to our spot nestled away in the trees. She even left us a little goodie basket of treats for us both which was just above and beyond. We planned on adventuring elsewhere most of the time and just sleeping at the site but there were so many cool trails to explore within the campground that we ended up just staying put the first day. Would absolutely recommend!

My family and I loved camping on Patty's land! We had plenty of space for a 8 person tent, table, lots of camp chairs and much more. Also lots of space for our Tahoe to park. Patty and her husband were such wonderful hosts. They communicated very well and were very attentive to our needs during our stay (provided multiple shower bladders, firewood and potable water). Also the outhouse was well kept and very spacious. The land provided many walking and hiking trails around our campsite. It was very beautiful with the leaves changing and the full moon that we experienced. The small touches (hand sanitizer, toliet paper, farm fresh eggs, zucchini bread and faries--which our toddler LOVED) made this a truly enjoyable experience. We will definitely be back. 5 stars!!
