Stay close to everything you want to do, but away from the crowds (we naturally socially distance)! You'll love this tent site  (one of just two on the property - about 50 yards from each other) 5 minutes from Wm. O'Brien State Park and the scenic St. Croix River, where you can hike, fish, swim, canoe, kayak and bike.

Cherry Grove is the most private of our two beautiful sites. A grassy area for your tent is surrounded by white pine, maple and fruit trees, and includes a fire ring so you can make s'mores under the stars. Cherry Grove overlooks a small grove of cherry trees. You'll see plenty of wildlife, including birds, deer and the occasional raccoon. Covered composting toilet, shared by 2 campsites and cleaned and disinfected daily. 

Please note that this is a small camping area that is run privately by homeowners, who live on site. Our site is a good match for those wanting to quietly connect with nature. We do not have any playground equipment for children. 

Discover nearby towns of Scandia (2 miles), which has miles of bike paths along ponds and lakes, and Marine on St. Croix (4 miles), a lovely historic village with an award-winning chocolate shop, ice cream, as well as the state's oldest operating general store (complete with wooden floorboards) 15 minutes south is Stillwater and 15 minutes north is Taylors Falls and even more state parks.

I (unfortunately) only stayed one night but it was beautiful. There was another family staying at the other site and even though it seemed close, I still felt like i had privacy and was secluded. There were beautiful trees and plants so you felt as if you had your own little area. Robyn was fantastic at replying quickly and I would recommend to anyone!

Great location! Felt like it was in driving distance of everything (state parks, coffee shops, touristy things). Well maintained sites and the out house with the compost toilet was immaculate. I can see how things could get crowded if all sites are booked, but if you’re plans are to be out and about during the day and just coming back at night to sleep this is the best spot! Relatively quiet and private. Saw turkeys, deer, rabbits and even a raccoon eating out of the bird feeder on the back porch.

It was peaceful and comfortable. I felt very at home and safe camping alone with my son. We would definitely camp here again.

On one hand, Robyn was very friendly and instructive. The outhouse was very well kept and smelled nice.
at least 3 firepits and more locations fo chose from. lots of frogs, crickets etc after sunset singing beautifully by a man-made pond. they thought the grass may be long and wanted to know if we wanted the grass cut around sunset.

on the other hand, I arrived at the house and tried to contact her, but I think it took 20 minutes. it was my first time and I was confused. the camping sites are in the big back yard, mostly in view of the house. surrunded by roads on 2 sides and 2 neighbors on the other. often hearing vehicles. I notice an old ripped full bag of garbage about 8 feet from the fire pit.

over all it was a good time and the host were kind and helpful

Overall, our 2 night stay here was great. The grounds were fantastically cared for and Robyn was a thoughtful host, providing a cart to help in hauling things to the campsite. The bathroom was nice and clean and was stocked with newspaper and some various other things that may be helpful during a stay here.

It was a bit less private than we would have liked, especially while completely booked. There are three or four campsites on the grounds of their home, and when all are filled it’s pretty easy to hear and see your “neighbors”. You may have to walk virtually through their campsite to get to the bathroom or back to the parking spots. It was manageable if not ideal. The noise from the nearby highway was also pretty noticeable at times.

If you are looking for a nice grounds, easy to access with well maintained campsites and amenities like a bathroom and wood for sale on site this is the place for you. If you are looking for extreme privacy in the middle of nowhere, you might want to look elsewhere for that experience.

You were basically camping out in their backyard but the host made us feel very comfortable!
