Pitch camp by your own 1/2 acre pond surrounded by trees and shrubs providing complete privacy. Stroll through a 30-acre pine forest. In season, taste apples from a small orchard, watch deer, pump your own well water, and if you are appropriately experienced move deeper within our meditation kuti on stilts. All these are inside a small city in northern Minnesota. A three-minute walk out will actually get you to a Pizza Hut, Subway, Chinese Buffet, health food store, or Walmart.

This is the perfect place to stop and prepare on your way to Minnesota's canoe country or the forest at the headwaters of the Mississippi.
