It was a great weekend! It was very peaceful, and we were able to get all of the firewood out of his woods!

This place was perfect for a weekend escape away from the cities. There are plenty of sites to choose from; some are pretty close together, but there’s a handful of nice secluded spots away from neighboring sites. We were not there long enough to sit and enjoy a glass of wine with Carl, but he is very friendly and welcoming and is a great host to chat with!

We had such a lovely time staying at the camps at the vineyard. Carl was so kind, and we really enjoyed getting to see his property, gardens, vineyard, and more. We will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful time camping here! Very peaceful sites and plenty of wildlife. The hosts were very friendly and gave us some fresh produce from their garden and wine from their vineyard. We will definitely be coming back!

We were super pleased with our stay. We were a little confused when we first showed up because you reserve a site by # but when you show up the sites aren't numbered and you just choose one? Still not 100% on that one. But it wasn't an issue. We found a spot overlooking the little river, and far enough from the other sites to have some privacy. The site itself was good sized. Larger than your standard crappy campground where they give you a car-sized piece of earth covered in gravel to put your tent on, right next to someone else's car-sized piece of earth. There was enough room to park our car, set up a table and chairs, and a tent. We could have fit another couple tents if we'd wanted to.

The campground wasn't quite as quiet as we expected. There was hooting and hollerin' all night long. It wasn't from the other campers though, it was from a grip of coyotes! All night it was coyotes, all day long it was shooting. They must really love their guns in that neck of the woods. It weren't scary or annoying, but definitely something we noticed.

Rum River State Forest is just up the street, so we brought our bikes and did some riding and exploring in the park. We definitely found a favorite spot for shooting at the end of the forest road. Shells littered the ground and the signs were decimated! Kind of made us wish we'd brought our guns with.

The host was very friendly and hospitable. He came by to offer us wood if we needed, but saw that we'd brought our own and gathered some more from the woods. The day we left he came by to let us know that we were welcome to stay as long as we wanted and didn't need to worry about the check-out time.

We were trying to find a last minute place to camp labor day weekend, and for some reason we were able to get in at The Camps at The Vineyard when most everything else was full. At $10 a night in a nice campground, I don't expect that will last long.
