Site 2 - Wildlife Orchard
Such a cool place to camp out for a few days. A unique property with everything you need for a good camping experience and more. Sheep, chickens, apple orchard, greenhouse with some of the biggest sunflower plants around. Close to Grand Rapids with lots of opportunities to explore.

Site 2 - Wildlife Orchard
Name says it all…Wildlife Orchard 👍
Rachel and Jayson have a beautiful property! It’s a “secret garden” hidden in an old growth forest, all close to the city of Grand Rapids. We appreciated the nice camping site with the nearby (clean) outhouse and picnic table for our use! Loved the farm tour that Rachel so generously gave her time to show us everything!

The property is so peaceful and lovely in the fall. The sauna is also wonderful!

Beautiful place in the tall Pines
Although our schedules did not align, so we could not meet up in person, Rachel did everything she could to make us feel comfortable and welcome.
It is a beautiful place…very peaceful and quiet, (except for the rooster, but even he seemed gracious).
Would highly recommend to anybody wishing to stay near Grand Rapids, MN.

5 stars is hardly enough of a rating for this exceptional hipcamp. We have stayed in hipcamps all over the USA and these guys have checked all the boxes.
You camp under towering White and Norway Pines and awake at dawn to the delightful rooster that lords over the free range chickens. All being carefully monitored by friendly border collie that is kept busy tending sheep as well.
If your looking for Privacy, Solitude, beautiful lakes and a unique natural experience, Wildlife Orchard is your spot
