We had a lovely experience at White Pine Meadow. There are two campsites and one house that is rented, however, the spaces are far enough away that you don't even notice anyone else is on the land. Great areas to walk around, visit donkeys, and easy access to the water for kayaking, paddle boarding, etc.

Lily Springs Farm is peaceful, quite, and simply beautiful. Living in the Twin Cities we needed to get away from the crowd and recharge. This is a beautiful place to do it. We love their approach to farming and the work they’ve put into being wonderful stewards of their land.

My friends and family would love to return and make this farm a regular place to be present outdoors.

The pines hug around a large open space full of bird sightings, walking trails and the lake - it’s a wonderful spot! The provided wood was much appreciated. Highly recommend. Our group found it to be a very healing space.

We stayed at the site surrounded by white pines in our VW Eurovan. It was very private, well maintained and picturesque! There was a picnic table, fire ring and a porta-potty designated for our spot. Goats roamed the hillside. We were a short walk to the water where my husband took a dip! Such a lovely place and we felt lucky that Nina, the gracious owner, has made her place available for travelers like us to camp! Thank you!

It was absolutely magical from the moment we drove in. The site was gigantic, open, and surrounded by beautiful tall trees- and best of all- private. We put our tent under the two trees in the middle of the meadow to have shade and it was perfect. The goats were wonderful neighbors. Elle greeted us and gave us the run-down. She is delightful and extremely friendly- all the staff we ran into on the grounds were (including the goats). The portable toilet was nearby and was very clean. The walk down to the lake was easy and so pretty. It was the best campsite we've ever stayed at. This was our first hipcamp trip and won't be our last, and we can't wait to go back to Lily Springs.

I’m willing to declare this the best hipcamp site within a couple hours of the twin cities. Most hipcamp sites are not my scene at all, since they generally seem to be in a random unmowed part of someone’s land. It combines the things that I like about the stereotypical hipcamp listing (farm animals of some sort and enough privacy) with things that the stereotypical hipcamp site doesn’t offer (mowed grass and not being in someone’s backyard).

I really recommend that you check out their website and instagram, since it gives you a bigger picture of what the farm consists of beyond just a place to spend the night. They are heavy into permaculture, which appeals to the part of me that regrets taking Horticulture 101 in my last semester of my senior year of college because had I taken it sooner I probably would have made that my major. You can buy fresh or frozen produce off of their site, as well as CBD infused products that they make with hemp that they grow themselves. I didn’t get to see their farm area since it didn’t seem to be connected to the farmhouse/campsite part of the property, but their aerial shots of it are gorgeous. Once normal life resumes I would love to participate in some of their educational opportunities!

Onto the site review! Both the White Pine Meadow and the Lakeside Serenity sites are amazing and large. We wound up staying at the Lakeside site, which has a nice view of Mud Lake and one of the herds of goats. You park your car where the gravel driveway ends, and you have the choice to set up your tent down by the lake or in the upper area which is more by the goats. Be prepared to make multiple trips back and forth between your car and your campsite.
The fire ring had plentiful stacks of firewood closeby, and there was also an electrical outlet (which was an unexpected surprise!) The mosquito situation was very good, we never even went into our screen house that we had set up just in case it was mosquito misery. There is a designated (and clean!) portapotty for each campsite, the lakeside is on the other side of the goat enclosure. It was close enough for daytime trips, but I wish it was closer for middle of the night visits.
While the Lakeside site was serene, walking into the White Pine Meadow campsite felt magical. Also buggy. The pines tower over you, and the understory is full of beautiful ferns. The site is mowed, but we still managed to pick up one tick walking through the trail that leads to it. There is actually some educational tick materials in an informational binder that is located in a little structure by the parking spot for the lakeside spot. If you are sad that you aren’t by the goat pen, don’t worry because there is a second herd of goats (and their guard dog) that overlook this site. I would definitely recommend all sorts of bug survival gear to make your life less slappy if you are camping at this site in the summer.
Random notes: The lake is pretty, but I’m picky and chose not to swim in it. The goats are friendly and are quiet once it starts to get dark. A goat tender comes twice a day to feed the goats, I’m not sure what staff activity levels are like during the weekdays. I wish that I had brought ear plugs because there was a fair amount of noisy wildlife activity during the night.

I enjoyed camping at Lily Springs Regenerative Farm. It is a lovely site (private and very large). My son loved the goats!

Staying at Lily Springs Farm is like being dropped into a fairy tale. The lakeside meadow was a dreamy place to warm up by a fire and watch the sun set over the water. The goats are adorable companions and there were lots of water fowl to appreciate too. Nature trails and a picturesque farmhouse and barn to boot. 10/10 would recommend!

The campsite was well-stocked with a large fire pit, plenty of dry wood, and a grill plate for cooking over the fire. The friendly goats were such a sweet perk of staying here!Down the perfectly maintained gravel drive into LSF, you're greeted first by this adorable farmhouse. Watching the sunset from my hammock. Pure tranquility!
