What a beautiful remote stay! We extended our stay after the first night. Ryan and Summer were excellent hosts. It was great to get to know them and make new friends in the process :) The location is in a secluded beautiful field of wildflowers, and there are plenty of pine trees to camp near or set up a hammock between. It can be a bit tricky to make it if you're van or car camping, but we managed with a stock Ford Transit high roof. We hope to be back again soon, and would recommend for anyone in the Grand Marais, MN area!

This place is awesome! More than anything we wanted privacy, and it delivered! More than that, the property is beautiful: big open flower fields with patches of forest - so you can pick if you want to be in the trees or the prairie. The owners were very kind and helpful, and never bothered us about anything unless we asked for help. The campsite is big enough that you can get far away from the owners house, so it never felt like we were on someone else’s land. It’s beautiful and tranquil! Will be back!

Awesome experience! These guys are just opening up their space and I felt honored to be one of the first campers! They took extra special care of me as a solo female camper which I appreciated. Felt like I was alone enough to have a legit camping experience while knowing I wasn’t totally isolated. Recommend 100%. ☺️

I got there and there was no one around. I saw a path labeled hipcamp but even in my truck the path was not driveable. I never found my spot or received any guidance. Once I left he contacted me to come back. At that point I gave up and was half way home. I never slept there. It was a total failure

We enjoyed our stay and loved being able to have our dog there with us. The site was mowed and had a nice rock fire pit. Pretty private spot in the trees too. There was one bird who did its best to keep us up the first night but, other than that, our stay was great. Also, super close to downtown Grand Marais. Thanks Ryan!

We had a great time at Far North Seclusion. The site was in a beautiful field of wily flowers. It was not as secluded as I was expecting. One campsite was right in view of the house. There were about 4 sites that were flattened down by a vehicle, mowed and had an area for a fire pit. Only one site had a lot of shade. On a cool evening that wouldn't really matter. Ryan was very prompt at answering texts.

We traveled during 4th of July weekend and had no reservations. We were able to book right away and our host reached out shortly after. Very communicative and was friendly upon arrival. We ended up getting the spot closest to their property but still felt like we had our own space! Perfect for what we needed. Our host even gave us 2 free tokens for 9 oz. pours @ Voyageur Brewery! An easy 10 minute drive from downtown Grand Marais. We would stay again!

I mean it's a field, with some mowing...but it's $28 bucks a night on the North Shore so who's complaining? Plus Ryan is a good host with great communication and its in a good location. The sites are maybe a bit closer together than I liked but again for that price I'm not complaining. I would definitely recommend and plan on staying again as the area is my favorite in Minnesota, even with all the damn construction going on. Thanks for having us!

I'm glad you had a good time. The construction in town is very annoying. Come back anytime!
