It was quiet and a beautiful place to stay. There was fog that came in the morning that was quickly gone by sunrise. There were horses here that were really nice to watch and mostly kept to themselves. It was a really cool place to camp it roughing. It is an ideal place to get away from civilization.

Wow, this was a particularly cool Hipcamp experience. It took me a few minutes messaging with Terry to understand that these hosts are EXTREMELY flexible and accommodating about where to camp on their property - Pretty much, if you can get there and it's not inside one of the houses or a horse pasture, you can camp there. So, it was actually kind of daunting to commit to a spot. I took a little while to decide, before finally settling behind the huge, beautiful garden near one of the main houses.

There was absolute privacy, total peace and quiet, and a wonderful sunset over the fields.

This is a bring-everything-in, bring-everything-out camping situation. Plan accordingly. There's no porta-pottie even.

I'm hoping they are hosting again next summer; I already have big plans to sleep near the hay barn next summer!

A nice, private camp spot that was not too far away from the beautiful Itasca state park!

This was my first time using hipcamp and I was so pleased to find this lovely place. Felt very lucky to have spent the evening in an open meadow surrounded by woods. The hay had been mowed so we could have camped anywhere.

Your own private hay field, no road noise but the sound of wind and a distant loon. Perfect hipcamp!

We loved this place. The lack of bathroom and water was nothing compared with the beauty of our memories. The horses, the sunshine and the sunrise, the starry sky, all made a magic adventure. Thank you Terry for providing this remarkable moment!

We had the most wonderful stay! We parked our Solis on the edge of the hayfield next to the trees. It was incredibly quiet and serene. We saw Sandhill cranes and a golden eagle in the evening and in the morning a flock of 17 wild turkeys came quite close to our van. We also saw a half dozen magpies. Such a treat to see all these birds that we seldom see in NE Minnesota.

Terry was great and very nice. Where to set up a tent was a little confusing but Terry said she plans to
put up signs for future campers. The horses were great, the sunset was amazing. Mosquitoes were bad but expected. Would definitely camp here again.
