We absolutely loved this campsite! Bob and Rox are so sweet and showed us around the beautiful trails with our dogs. So much easier to have the yurt all set up for us, we will be back!!

Bob and Roxane were amazing hosts! They showed us around the whole property, brought us some extra cots, since we forgot to bring some, and made us all feel very welcome.
It was the first time any of us had stayed in a yurt. We loved it!

A little piece of paradise
Bob and Roxanne were terrific hosts; so friendly, helpful, and thoughtful. The yurt is private and surrounded by beautiful pines as expected. This site has everything you’ll need for a basic getaway: yurt with minimal bed and furniture, water, screened in table, fire pit and trails. The outhouse is very clean. It’s like camping without the effort of putting up a tent!

We had a great time at the yurt and definitely recommend it to anyone considering staying here!
Bob and Roxanne are very friendly and provided everything you could need including plenty of firewood.
We even brought our dog who didn’t want to leave at the end of our stay.
We will definitely be staying here again in the future if we’re in the area!

I loved it!!!!!
This was the best camping experience I have had so far in Minnesota. Bob and Roxanne are amazing people to say the least and these wonderful hosts had everything set up for us upon arrival. Even occasionally checked in to see if there was anything we needed Their property is gorgeous and the outhouse they have set up has a sink, tp, and two windows with flowers. The yurt site was secluded enough that we had complete privacy and while we could have gone into town more than we did we really didn’t want to leave the site. You can hear owls in the early morning and we could hear the coyotes howling at night for a bit and the stars were breathtaking. My dog loved it. My 9 year old daughter didn’t want to leave. I will be back for sure, hopefully before winter if I can get in.😃❤️🌸

Quality family time!
The yurt was such a fun unique experience and Bob and Roxanne were so friendly and showed us all around their beautiful property. We enjoyed the trails, gardens, even the out house was nice! Very peaceful fun place for our family, thank you!!

Lovely Hosts & Cool Tipi Stay
Lovely and friendly owners. They gave me a tour of their nice garden and offered my veggies from it. The tipi was so cool! Heard about them my whole life, but have never seen one in person. Very clean. Everything
I needed was there. Nice trail. First outhouse I've ever experience with a working sink lol. My only complaint were the bugs, but 'tis the season in July.
Thanks so much Bob and Roxanne!

Best Hipcamp experience so far
Yurt in the Pines is totally worth it. The hosts were amazing and the amenities exceeded expectations. The toilet was well maintained, the yurt has awesome string lights in it that totally added to the night time atmosphere and card games, and the land it’s all situated on was very pristine. Weekend Glampers be AWARE; bring high concentrated deet style bug spray for the mosquitoes. They were tenacious and numerous. You will also not have access to internet/LTE/wifi while you stay here. Also- make sure you bring extra sweaters/thermals/socks. None of this was an issue for us, but just thought I would add that. I’m 100% coming back here to explore the surrounding area.

Stay in the Yurt
My husband and I stayed in the yurt on the property. The inside was nice and spacious. It was perfect. The land the Yurt is on is private and had nice trails and tons of wildlife. Bob and Roxanne gave us a tour of the area and they have really made the place an enjoyable place to stay. There's gardens everywhere and different plants and wildflowers. Chatting with Bob and Roxanne definitely made the trip more enjoyable as well. They were very nice and made sure we were comfortable. My husband and I will be back for sure!

Fun, dry, uncomplicated camp.
The Yurt was exactly as expected. Sturdy wood floor and completely waterproof. Plenty of space to spread out and play games while rain passes. There is an outhouse with a hand washing station a short walk from the Yurt.
Nearby the Yurt they also had a standard 10’ x 10’ screened canopy assembled with a picnic table under it. There was ample amounts of deadfall firewood and Bob even had a seed-fire smoldering when we got there.
Quickly after arriving we realized we forgot our camp chairs. No worries…we had coolers and other items to improvise for the first night. The next day when we returned from Mora there was a restored wood bench sitting in front of the campfire.
We did a fair amount of casual biking up and down their long driveway and along the rolling gravel roads surrounding their property. We passed one car, livestock, deer and some other wildlife so while the dog enjoyed running with us there were a lot of distractions.
The camp is surrounded by lots of vegetation so while it’s very private you have to be prepared for mosquitos. They’re worst at sunset and when you sit still but they’re pretty much gone by nightfall so they don’t really disrupt the campfire too much.
Bob and Roxanne appear to be making constant improvements to the Yurt experience. This was a fun and unusual outdoor experience, so if you’re looking for an undemanding way to get out into the woods and have a guaranteed “dry sleeping experience” no matter the weather, this is a good option.

First time camping in a yurt and it was a great experience! Bob and Roxanne are very kind and helpful with any needs. They made us feel right at home. Plenty of trails throughout the property and many critters to discover! Lots of privacy and space for yard games/ yoga. The frogs at night were very soothing. The yurt stood strong and kept us safe in an overnight storm. We will definitely be coming back! Bring bug spray.

Magical stay in the forest
We had such a lovely time at Bob and Roxanne's cozy and beautifully crafted yurt. The yurt is situated in a private space of your own surrounded by lush greens. The whole experience felt so magical. Bob and Roxanne are both so kind, welcoming, gracious and accommodating. They are extremely thoughtful hosts. The outhouse was the cleanest we have ever been in, our kids called it the fort. Our kids had so much fun finding all the hand carved woodland creatures along the walking paths. We will definitely be back for the peace, serenity and relaxation this special place provided. Highly recommend.

Great weekend in the Yurt.
We had an awesome weekend staying at the Yurt in the Pines! It was great to get out of the city and try something new for a couple nights. Bob, the host, was very friendly and helpful and went out of his way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Very cool experience and would highly recommend their place!

Great trip, even greater hosts
Loved it! My family of 4 and a dog plan to come back again. The yurt is a nice experience and very helpful if you're looking to get away for a couple of days and not set up or tear down a tent. The yurt is clean and well sized. The outdoor space is well kept and secluded. Outhouse was also clean and had nice touches to it. To top it off Bob and Roxanne are great hosts and very helpful. They were very respectful of our privacy.

A truly unique and magical place
Bob and Roxanne have the most magical set up.
Not only is their property a beautiful, unique space, but they clearly took care and consideration with every detail of the campsite for the yurt.
The campsite came with a closing lid for the fire to accommodate for high forest fire conditions, a mosquito tent area just for moments in the day where the mosquitoes were most present, walking paths to every campsite marked with adorable animals, and more! The outhouse was honestly ask the best we have ever used, it was so clean with a water pump available to wash your hands afterwards.
We loved how they made everything so eco friendly and will certainly be back in true future for longer stays!

Yurt in the Pines hosted by Bob and Roxanne was a wonderful start to my summer vacation. My son and I enjoyed the site, hospitality, and conversation. I love Bob and Roxanne's vision for their space and how they share their respect for nature and wildlife with others.

Good people, beautiful place
Bob and Roxanne are wonderful and their campsites are beautiful. Since we were the only ones there for the night, we were able to stay in the yurt site and Bob graciously brought us a mattress when we couldn’t get our air mattress to blow up. We got a tour around the property when we arrived, including the new greenhouse where tomatoes and lettuce are growing. For my husband, an aspiring gardener, it was really fun to get some tips for his tomatoes. The campsite was quiet, clean, and we had drinking and usable water available, along with a screen porch of sorts for the bugs and a really cool manhole cover fire pit. The outhouse was clean and worked great. The beautiful pines outlined our site and we absolutely loved it. We will definitely go back!!

My family and I had a lovely time staying at the Yurt in the pines. My husband and two toddlers stayed in the yurt while my two teenagers pitched a tent right next to us. The property is beautiful with a big open meadow area next to the yurt. My kids loved all the space to hike and explore wildlife. Lots of little trails to explore. The outhouse was a short walk from the Yurt, and it was extremely clean and very well kept. Bob and Roxanne were so kind and accommodating to us. We will definitely be back!
