The Willow Creek tent site is one of only two camping sites available on this historic 13-acre organic farm. Nestled in a secluded valley in Wisconsin's Driftless Region, our farm, "Griff Run" has been rated a 5-star accommodation for travelers for several years. In 2020, we expanded our offerings by adding the Willow Creek tent site. Please note that our sites are listed as "not suitable for children" under 12 due to country road hazards, electric fence, gated pastures, etc.
Parking for high clearance vehicles is available at the site - others may park in our barn drive and will have a short walk to the site. Along the creek and sheltered by a willow tree, this site has been cut into native Wisconsin prairie and offers a fire pit, large grill grate, trash can and picnic table. Firewood is available for purchase via Hipcamp (super reasonable!) and we ask that no firewood be brought onto the property. Our Willow Creek tent site is frequently visited by our laying hens and turkeys as their mobile coop is not far away.
New in 2021, we have built an outdoor hot-water shower for our guests - near the red barn. A well-maintained porta potty and wash sink for guests of the Starcraft site are also near the camper. This potty is serviced after each reservation. Potable water is also available at a spigot near the barn.
Guests can also find a charging station near the potties. We haven't had any issues with theft at the farm to date, but note that devices charging there are left at your own risk.

Places to see near Shawna C.’s Land
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This was a fun place to camp! The site is super cute and has a neighboring chicken coop with chickens and turkeys who like to come visit. Great view of the stars at night. Wifi worked well. The porta potty was clean and a short walk from the site (in the alpaca enclosure). We were able to park in the designated spot and then disconnect and walk our 4x8’ teardrop camper down the path to the site. A little tight but doable! The host was super helpful and gave some great recommendations of things to do in the area.
Warm, chill and easy
Great place! Shawna and crew made sure we had everything we needed, including fresh eggs and fire wood and fire starters! The space is cleared out just enough near a willow tree, private and the on-site WiFi and showers were a welcome addition to the camping experience. Shawna gave recommendations for kayaking and a local brewery. All around a great stay at Willow Creek. Thank you!
A truly unique experience
This was a great camping experience in a truly unique place. Shawna made us feel welcome and was an awesome host. The farm was beautiful and the site was perfect.
Relaxing campsite with animal frien
The host, Shawna was super communicative and answered all my questions before and during the stay. Incredibly quiet area off the beaten path, our campsite was perfectly situated for stargazing, enjoying a simple breeze while also being an easy drive to Effigy National Monument. The shower was a welcomed addition after the 7+ mile hike and the bathrooms/porta potties were immaculately clean, with zero of that "typical" smell.
The chickens were curious and played the role of welcoming committee perfectly while the alpacas were curious but ultimately kept their distance (until the provided alpaca snacks came out). I would gladly stay again - maybe in fall to take in the changing autumn colors.
A perfect stay
We could not have asked for a more enjoyable weekend! The campsite is lovely and the chickens and alpacas make it really fun to stay here. We got plenty of giggles out of the antics of the chickens. Having a real sink to do dishes at was also fantastic, and it was a very reasonable walk to the facilities. Shawna is super accommodating, friendly, and helpful and was a wonderful hostess. We got plenty of privacy and were so incredibly glad that we did this instead of the typical state park type deal. We actually got our peace and quiet and the sound of trees and birds instead of a million people and cars. The stars at night were clear and gorgeous also! I would go back anytime.
Run, don’t walk to book your trip!
We will definitely be coming back! Such a perfect place for a weekend getaway. Relatively quiet spot but still close enough to get to amenities. Just enough amenities on the property to make the trip PERFECT for everyone! Porta-potties, large farmhouse sink, AND a rainhead shower! Shawna and her family have a great set up for you and yours! Highly recommend.
