Welcome to OakStrand! We are offering camping with access to an indoor bathroom, shower, laundry and a 6 person cedar sauna on our beautiful corner lot located near downtown Hastings, MN. 

If you are looking for a location that gives you great access to world class fishing, hiking, swimming and biking, as well as an active downtown full of small businesses, this is the spot for you! Within walking distance of downtown Hastings (local breweries, restaurants, shops, live music), the Mississippi River Park (Jaycee Park) and the Mississippi River Trail (MRT). Very close to CP Adams Park, Vermilion Falls Park, Spring Lake Park (great hiking) and the St. Croix River (best swimming). Hastings has it's own 10 mile loop/trail. 

If you are craving a more urban experience, St. Paul is a 25-minute drive away! You can get nearly anywhere in the metro area in less than an hour.

Smoking and the use of camp stoves is permitted outdoors but please keep an eye on your flames/ashes for safety's sake. 

We are in Hastings, so if you are looking for a super rural camping spot this is not for you. If you are looking for a blend of town and country, please join us!

Safety is a priority: prior to accepting a booking request, images of photo IDs for all adults may be required for first time campers. This is to ensure the identity of the person making the booking and to preserve the safety of guests. Please ask about this policy if you have any question or concerns, I am happy to clarify. An email for receiving images will be provided upon sending a booking request. 

 Please reach out with any questions you may have, I would love to answer them!

I loved it here!! Enjoyed the sauna, being near the town, access to bathroom and shower, and the quiet nights. Thanks so much for letting me park my car back in the garden for additional privacy - be well! <3

We have a friend who grew up in Hastings and wanted to show us the town.
We went on to Hipcamp and saw an actual site in the middle
of the town , Driveway Camping !! The location is super easy to get to .
The site is on a corner lot with a beautiful yard with a very natural ambiance , many gardens and nice features.
We have a 21 foot camper and had adequate room in the driveway. When we arrived we were greeted by Adam , Ashley’s husband.
Adam was very accommodating and showed us the amenities.
Access to the bathroom, shower, and laundry are easy with a separate entrance.
The location is very close to downtown.. walking distance .
Many restaurants , shops , and bars .
Ashley did a super job of listing many of the local attractions.
The only downfall was the temperatures were in the high 90’s.
On the Hipcamp site they stated that they had 30 amp electric, which wasn’t the case , therefore we had no air conditioning.
Adam did his best to rectify the situation but wasn’t able to fix it. If you are planning on coming with a camper , find out if they have updated the electrical.
The tent area is really nice , So if that’s an option I would go with that at this point..
Overall we give this site a 9 , only because of the power hookup!! Ashley and Adam are the best and will do whatever you need to make you happy !!

The outdoor space provided is very beautiful and the neighborhood is quiet. The inside spaces also very nice and clean. Ashley even left us a map of the local area. We’d definitely be happy to stay there again.
