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.

Natural features you'll find at Tumbleweed Base Camp in Minnesota.
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We really enjoyed our stay at Logan’s sanctuary. It’s a gorgeous piece of land, kept in pristine condition, and had all the amenities we needed! Logan and his dad were such nice people and we even got to know each other around the campfire that night. Would definitely come back and would love to spend time in the awesome barn Logan is working on right now!
Friendly and peaceful
Dude! Logan is awesome, the space is nice and open. I’d describe it as like halfway country, you still have neighbors and you’re still relatively close to town, but it has the open air feel! Huge bonus is free firewood! Logan’s got big plans for the place and for his second visitor I’d say he’s already a pro!
The heart & spirit of hipcamp
There is so much to love about this experience. I am honored to be the fourth guest and the first long-term (six nights) camper at Tumbleweed Base Camp. Logan and his father, David, have created a beautiful place of welcome, peacefulness, and rejuvenation. I appreciate all that Logan and David did to extend hospitality and make this feel like home over 7 days.
Their land includes woods surrounding an idyllic campsite. Wild turkeys are seen daily, with 14 being the most I counted at a time. David invited me to sample the strawberries he's growing. Logan prepared a fire on my first night and I got to learn about his vision for this location, and he's already well on his way, capturing the heart and spirit of Hipcamp.
The campsites are down the hill from the family home. Water drainage is effective and I had no issues even with three nights of steady rain.
I stayed here, during these days of COVID-19, in order to practice social distancing with older family members. It's where I plan to stay from now on whenever I'm in the area.
I cannot speak highly enough of this experience! Thank you, Logan and David!
P.S. Local recommendation: Mi Cartengenta Cafe for delicious pastries & Columbian coffee. Bring a good book or journal and plan to sit on the deck facing Detroit Lake.
Logan was a great host, very welcoming and great conversationalist. Although still early in it's development, his place has so much potential in the future and his plans for the hostel are really cool. I'll be excited to come back and see the progress he's made on the barn!
Excellent setting and hosts
Beautiful farm setting just outside Detroit Lakes. Host Logan and his dad Dave were perfect hosts and have created an idyllic camp setting especially with the early fall colors. Logan is a gracious and welcoming world traveler who goes out of his way to make his guests feel welcome. He took the time to give me a tour of his amazing barn restoration and made an awesome bon fire even after a long day of work for him. Fascinating conversation. Just can’t say enough positive things about this location and host!
Warm hospitality in mn’s lakes
It was nearly dark when we arrived and Logan’s dad met us on arrival. While we set up our little teardrop trailer for the night, he started a camp fire for us to enjoy on the chilly night. Logan soon joined us and we sat under the exquisite stars by the fire, enjoying a great conversation about travel. Then he gave us a tour of the barn that he is lovingly restoring. Tumbleweed Basecamp is conveniently located and the site is very nice. Great hospitality among Minnesota’s lakes.
Logan was a very engaged host, friendly and accommodating. The property is very lovely, providing space for privacy as well as opportunity to socialize with other campers. Intriguing barn remodel underway; we hope to return to see progress.
