This is a very private location. In its former life this property was a limestone quarry. Evidence of it's history remain with high rock walls on both ends of the property. In the center of the property is about 5 acres that is flat and covered with wildflowers and small trees. There are several good options for camping in this area. Surrounding this area is another 15 acres of hills and trees great for hiking and enjoying the beautiful view of the Mississippi River below. There is a boat ramp just a mile down the hill for boating or fishing on the Mississippi and the city of La Crosse, WI and La Crescent, MN are each only about a five minute drive. Great River Bluffs State Park and countless other recreational opportunities are just minutes away.

One of my favorites!
I loved camping on Erica’s land! You really can’t beat this camping spot. Absolutely beautiful views of the bluffs and Mississippi River on the way up to the site and surrounding the site. Clean, quietly tucked away in the beautiful quarry, and stunning views of the stars on a clear night. I felt very safe and secure as a solo female camper. Very close to Winona & La Crosse, so you can see your friends or explore and then get some space. Will definitely be staying here every time I come back to the area!

Absolutely great place to stay. Whether passing through the area, or looking to spend a few nights, the sites are easy access and all well protected. Not far from town if you need supplies and everyone in the area was more than friendly and helpful. Host Erica was very helpful and eager to assist us in finding things in the area and even pointed us in the direction to potable water for the trailer tanks. Her communication was prompt and clear. Host Aaron was rad and made sure that everyone in the different sites were well informed and taken care of. Nice centralized area with firewood, starters, gallon water, and porta toilet. A couple of nice little trails around the property and the overlook swing provides some of the nicest views of the river valley. Will be back again for sure. Be sure to ask the host about the upper road to LaCrescent/Lacrosse. It’s a beautiful road on top of the bluffs with some extra scenic overlooks to stop at if you so choose. Looking forward to 2023 season!

Great place to stay! Beautiful views, easy to get to, and a cool, unique location in the quarry. Our tent site was perfectly situated on the bluff, with a clean fire ring and nice table and chairs. Would definitely stay again!

Beautiful
Beautiful setting. Campsites are very spread out. The surrounding walls of rock did a great job of blocking most of the wind.

Great tent camping at the quarry!
I loved tent camping at the quarry! Beautiful views and the fall colors were even better. Easy access and lots to explore. All sites are very private and tons of room for the dogs to run around if you wanted. Erica was able to greet us which made the experience even better! I will be back!

Exceptional host
I booked last minute and arrived at nearly dark as stormy weather was moving in. Traveling solo, I didn’t feel comfortable being the only person at the Hipcamp site. Erica responded quickly, understood my situation and offered me another night so I can come back to check out The Quarry at a better time!

Windy evening
I was driving from WY to VA and stopped just a few hours from visiting family in WI. It was a blustery evening and we tent camped at the top of the bluff. Surprisingly, we were well protected from the wind. Unfortunately we arrived well after sunset and departed well before the sun rise. The site easy to find via Erica's instructions and the moonlight promised what would have been a beautiful view of the river. So disappointed that we couldn't have stayed later to enjoy it. I will hope to return.

The quarry is one of the best places we've camped. Loved being off griv in such a peaceful place. Beautiful scenery and the hosts were great. We loved the Corner Cove site. Appreciated access to wood, trash cans and a port-o-let. We'll be back!!!

Tenting up top
There are a few camping spots tucked in at the bottom where you pull in, and a camping spot up a small dirt and gravel road above the scenic overlook point with the swinging bench. The camping spot at the top is tent camping only and that is where we stayed. There was a fire pit, table and chairs. We camped here for three nights and loved our stay. You can drive to LaCrosse in about 15 minutes.

This was my second trip to the quarry. Our group enjoyed it so much last year we booked again. This is a great site in close proximity to lots of driftless activities in the area. The hosts are easy to work with and everything was like it was described in the posting. We're already talking about our next visit.

Convenient&beautiful, dog friendly!
What a beautiful private and convenient location! It is tucked away in the trees up a steep hill. We were able to easily pull our 16’ square drop camper and find a nice level spot to park it. We needed an easy spot to pull off the 90 on a long road trip on our way to Michigan. And this was it! We got in late and left early, but would have loved to to have more time here. Less than 5min off the I-90 but we didn’t hear any traffic! Only crickets and nature. We were the only ones up there on a Wednesday night. We were able to run our generator for a/c since we were the only ones, which kept us cool on a humid Sept night. It was a nice and open area, our dogs loved running in the grass and getting sniffs in before getting back on the road. Erica was so helpful and communicative. We will definitely be staying again on our way home if we take this route!

What a neat place! They have a great, user friendly set up. Well organized, good flat campsites. I was the only one there, but the sites are spaced far enough apart that there would be plenty of privacy. I booked at the last minute, so didnt get to meet the hosts. Erica was helpful and welcoming and available by hipcamp messaging. Would love to stay again.

Relax and recharge at the Quarry
This is a perfect location for a quick getaway into seclusion. Scenic with well-kept short trails that allow for immersion into nature, The Quarry was our first Hipcamp experience. This location should be on your list if you are looking to check out from the hustle and bustle. We chose it as the destination for the maiden voyage and shake down of our camper trailer. Our pull through site was perfect for a newbie and made the whole experience stress free. The location was as advertised. Erica and her husband met us on site at check in and were both welcoming, and very accommodating. This location made the list for a return visit. In fall this location will be phenomenal!!

Camping in the Quarry
We really enjoyed meeting Erica on site and having the corner cove campsite in Quarry in the Mississippi Bluff. Erica fully explained the camp ground and answered all our questions and was very accessible. The campsites have a large fire ring with two comfortable chairs and a log bench. There is also a very large picnic table. We had plenty of room for our travel trailer and screen tent. The short hike up the bluff to the swing provided a beautiful view out over the Mississippi River. We highly recommend Erica’s Hipcamp for an overnight or many night stay.
