Pitch your tent or park your camper in a private rustic space near Minneapolis. Enjoy Minnesota's natural beauty without a long drive from the city.

The property has been in our family for 70 years. We call it the Farm, but it currently has not animals and no crops. The 40 acre plot is surrounded on 3 sides by Sherburne State Forest, Park and Wildlife Refuge. It contains 15 acres of Norway and White Pine forest and 15 acres of hardwood forest. A main feature of the property is barn that was originally build by my dad. It has been used for dances (our wedding dance was there) and was our indoor basketball court as kids. It will make a great shared community resource. The land has a special place in Gail and my heart and we want to share its beauty with others. We are looking for campers that would enjoy the space and at the same time leave it better that when they came.

Doug and his family were friendly, knowledgeable hosts. We camped in a private clearing under a giant oak close to the barn. - Just watch out for poison ivy in the woods! It is worth checking out the nearby Sand Dunes State Forest and Sherburne Wildlife Preserve, where we saw sandhill cranes, nesting swans, and tons of other birds/waterfowl.

I stayed at Doug's property for one night with a friend of mine. The location was easy to get to and near to a nice swimming area and state forest. They own 40 acres or so, with nice paths they maintain themselves. We were met with hospitality and friendliness throughout our visit. Be careful of poison ivy, which was rampant in certain parts of the property. Great site for a family or people new to camping.
