- This site is at the edge of a restored quarry, sheep pasture, and wooded hillside.

- The site is tucked down a flat mowed path, so it feels very private and protected.

- You can hike up a path to the sheep pasture. Sometimes sheep are there, sometimes elsewhere on the farm. You can hike the other direction and check out the restored quarry. We have paths all around the property, so feel free to respectfully explore.

- You can't see the highway from this site, but you can hear it. It's super handy to be able to hop out of your campsite haven and onto the hwy, but be aware that you will hear vehicles.

- There's a Mississippi river boat launch a few miles down the road, so feel free to park your boat at the bottom of the quarry driveway.

- The Hay Creek riding trails are 25 minutes away, so contact us if you want to set up a place in the quarry to park your horses and trailer for the night.

- We are certified to sell meat straight off of the farm (Twin Folk Farms), so contact us if you want to purchase your meat and have it delivered to your campsite. You can also set up a time to come up to the farm and purchase meat. 

- The beautiful, historic town of Red Wing is 10 minutes from our farm. You'll find a mix of modern amenities and historic shops to suit your fancy.

Nice primitive camp site, easily accessible yet secluded. Host was very nice to work with too. We’ll likely be back with our young kids, lots of nature to explore on the site.

It was great to get away from the busy city and camp in a secluded area to relax and rest. It was interesting to see the livestock activity from a distance while camping. Great area to explore just a short distance away.

Very quiet, very private and nice people. We dry camped for 17 nights in our travel trailer and it worked out great.

We enjoyed our time at the Sheep Shanty. The site is very secluded, which we enjoyed. Nearby was the flock of sheep and Darla's sheep dog, who was very friendly and kept a watchful eye on us!

Communication was great and Darla checked on us during our stay to see if we needed anything.

This was only about an hour from our southern suburb home and a perfect weekend get away. We would recommend it and will stay again in the future.

We needed a place to stay in the area and this was perfect. Super private. It's a strange bowl in the landscape that's ruggedly pretty. Simple and just what we needed.

Sheep Shanty was a fun spot for the night. It is very private, and there is plenty of room to roam. It was a refreshing change from the typical campground. The GPS coordinates were spot on which made finding it much easier. Darla had everything ready to go and checked in on us to make sure we were set.

We had a delightful time at the sheep shanty! This was a great 4th of July escape from the city - a beautiful and private campsite, with exactly the right amenities for the weekend. We greatly enjoyed having firewood at the campsite upon arrival. The sausage and eggs (also waiting for our arrival) were AMAZING!! We hope to come back to camp, and know we will be back for meat! What a great spot!!!

Thank you so much for checking us out! I am glad we are close enough to the city for you to scoot over for a night/weekend. :-)
