Mended Tree Drive

1 site · RV1 acre · Spring Valley, MN
50ft gravel drive with water and electric hookups available. Close walking distance to restaurants, trout stream, bait shop, park + playground, pickleball courts, and the bowling alley! Must be self-contained. We currently have no sewer hookup, toilet or shower available for use. There is a free public dump a couple blocks down. Firepit is available for use. Sometimes we have wood, but when we do not- there is DNR approved stuff available at the bait shop just a couple blocks down. The gas grill on the patio is available for guest use as well. Like firewood, I usually have some propane in the tank but not always! There is a Kwik Trip a few blocks down where you can exchange the tank that's here, or you're welcome to bring your own. My yard can be a bit lumpy in certain places, but has plenty of space for tent(s) if you need additional sleeping space. Parking is available in the drive or on the street. Additional parking space can sometimes be made available if you have a larger rig and would prefer off street parking for your vehicle. Pets are welcome, but they must be dog friendly! A small and VERY friendly French Bulldog owns the place and will make himself known as he would love to say hi to you and/or your dog loving critter(s). Please make me aware if you have any concerns and I can try to accommodate. The house next door is abandoned and acts as a green screen in the summertime creating a decent amount of privacy! We can (and will) often be found out in the yard and/or the garden most evenings and on weekends, but can (and will) try to mind our own business if you prefer! The camper you see is mine. I have hopes of renovating it for guest use, but you can rest assured noone will be staying in it while you're here. Later in the year, our garden may provide food. If this is the case while you're here- you are always welcome to pick some as usually there is an abundance! More to come!

Aefintyr

15 sites · Lodging14 acres · Altura, MN
Aefintyr is a campground located on Whiskey Hill in the Whitewater River Valley near the town of Elba, MN. The land was used for personal recreation for several years. I've spent countless hours hiking and enjoying observing the seasons, plants, fungus and animals. The vision of a campground was inspired by many camping and backcountry spots throughout the United States, all of the amazing things in the woods, the beautiful blufftop valley views, proximity to a multitude of outdoor activities and adventures. Camps are spacious, secluded and designed to immerse guests in the surrounding woodland.

The upper property (Hwy. 52 access) offers a secluded forest as well as a spacious meadow. The woods are filled with birds and many other indigenous wild animals. We are only a half mile from towns edge and two miles from its center (also a five minute drive from Luther College).

People come here year round for our outdoor recreation and beauty. Canoeing, Kayaking, Fishing, Tubing, X-country skiing, and Trail Riding are very popular activities around here.

The best camping near Lake Louise State Park guide

Overview

About

Just north of the Iowa border, on the the Little Iowa River, you’ll find one of Minnesota’s most flawless nature escapes. Seriously, we can’t say enough good about Lake Louise State Park, named for the man-made reservoir it surrounds. Bike the nine-mile Shooting Star paved trail that weaves through vast prairie and gorgeous old-growth oak and savannahs to the nearby town of Leroy for an ice cream, then head back to camp for one of the park’s sweet weekend events like a candelit night hike. Antiquers will want to check out the old Wildwood Park entrance sign, a relic from the late 1800s before the land was renamed for its benefactor. And amid all the biking, swimming, boating, and general winning, you’ll be surrounded by two endangered flower species that bloom out of the rocks here—the vibrant big tick trefoil and wild nodding onion attract rare butterfly species, and you might even see blue heron or wild turkey stopping to smell the flowers with you. Paradise is alive and well in Minnesota.

When to go

The best time to visit Lake Louise State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural scenery is at its peak. Summer offers warm days perfect for water activities, though it can be busy. Winter transforms the park into a snowy wonderland, ideal for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, but be prepared for cold temperatures.

Know before you go

  • Highway 67 is closed; follow alternative routes provided by the park for access.
  • Check the park's website for the latest updates on trail and facility closures.
  • Remember to bring your own water and snacks, as amenities may be limited.
  • For safety, always inform someone of your itinerary and expected return time.
  • Be mindful of wildlife and practice Leave No Trace principles to preserve the park's natural beauty.
