Our property and profile are in constant change as we are in a stage of development, but we look to share our land with those seeking to enjoy a warm, welcome environment for those fellow wanderers, outdoor enthusiasts, vagabonds, and globetrotters. I am a well-traveled backpacker myself and share 5 1/2 acres with my father here in a bustling little touristy town. We enjoy the company of those who endorse small footprint, sustainable practices and I eventually intend to create an eco-hostel from the conversion of our 100-year-old barn.  All we ask is that you respect the property, our neighbors, and make an effort to add one more new friend before you depart.

Could not be a better place to camp in Detroit Lakes for an outdoorsy person with the recreation area next door! The farm is beautiful and well kept, the common area is extremely unique with loads of hard work put in. Logan and his father are very friendly and go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. 100% recommend and will be back!

We have a camper van and the setting didn’t accommodate this. The designated camping spots are for tents only. The spot we pulled into was very close to the driveway and the road, not ideal. Not sure about availability of water as nobody came to greet or check in with us so we couldn’t ask questions even though they mentioned they would like to orient us.

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed this cozy camping property. Locating Tumbleweed was easy. The camping area is an enormous backyard densely framed with a variety of trees. The camping area rolls far back away from the driveway leaving ample choices to set up camp. There's an oversize fire ring midway back which we and other campers relaxed around in the evenings. The firewood is included in the stay which is a huge plus. We used the outside water spigot to fill up our jugs and found it A-OK. The port-a-potties were clean. The skeeters were not bad at all for Minnesota while we were there but bug spray is still a good idea. Take the time to check out the rehab'd old barn on the property. The hosts were like visiting family - the good side of the family! Detroit Mountain is a short distance away for mountain biking, food, and beverages. There's also excellent biking around Detroit, Melissa, and Sally lakes - plan a stop for a meal on an outdoor patio on your route!

Tumbleweed Base Camp is truly a sanctuary. Beyond the natural beauty and remarkable upkeep of the place, which has been outfitted and designed with care by people who are world travelers themselves, it's so quiet and peaceful you'd never you're within a quick drive to town. A family of deer, honeycrisp saplings, rolling hills and a marvelous fire circle would be more than enough to recommend it, but the warm welcome and wonderful conversations with the hosts make it a place to which you'll want to return.

The Tramp Scamp and its owner. (Don't blame me—I didn't name the thing.)Wonderful conversation around the campfire. Inside the barn, Zeke meditates in sploot.Outdoor office under the trees.

A top-tier examination by a certifiable roaming badass known as Marya. One should be so lucky to share in the gut-busting laughter that adheres to the witty conversations had fireside with this delightful, eloquent observer of the world. The only factor lacking during her stay was the limited free time I had to engage in thought-provoking, unfiltered quips and semi-tall tales 😆. Good news is she booked again to catch the fall colors, we 3 (Lucy included) look forward to your reappearance 🔮

Nothing (and no place) embodies the hip camp model like Logan (and dad). Great, quiet, spacious place.
Quick and clear communication.
Oh, and the barn…don’t forget to check out the barn.

...and insanity later! (joking of course 🤣). Wow, thanks for the wonderful review, we are happy to hear our efforts are bearing fruit in the Hipcamp community! Not only have we had the pleasure of meeting 100's of fellow adventurers, but have sewn some friendships as well. Safe travels Kevin, hope to see you back here when you're passing through.
