P2 Privacy in the Pines was spectacular! We arrived late and at the very last minute, but our hosts Pam and Pat could not have been more welcoming. We had our pick of a few fantastic campsites (there's also a gorgeous safari tent and tipi on site, for those looking for a bit more luxury). We had lots of privacy and access to every amenity we could have asked for, from water and toilets to a fire pit and firewood. And the property is just stunning -- up on a hillside, you can look out into the valleys below, and walk for miles on groomed trails throughout their 60+ acres. It feels secluded, remote, and peaceful -- but Northfield and the Twin Cities are just around the corner. This was the perfect first Hipcamp experience, and we definitely plan to be back at P2 very soon!

Pat and Pam were fantastic hosts who went above and beyond to make sure my son and I had an enjoyable experience. And we did! The campsite was perfect, tucked into and amazing stand of pines which sits atop a hill. it was warm the weekend we were there but there was always a nice breeze blowing up from the valley below which kept all flying pests at bay.
Pat and Pam we so gracious and even invited us on a pontoon boat ride on lake Byllesby which is just a couple minute drive from the campsite.
Pat has painstakingly mowed a beautiful walking and biking path throughout their 60 acres for their guest to enjoy. My son and I brought our mountain bike s and rode the trails the evening before we left. we had a great time.
Would highly recommend P2 for it's privacy, scenery, and of course the hospitality.

This place is absolutely amazing and Pat and Pam are delightful hosts. The grounds are so beautiful with lots of trails. We stayed in the tee pee and the fancy tent and both were clean and wonderfully decorated. I felt like I was in another world. Cannon falls is a great area to kayak, hike and fish and we loved the very close proximity to everything from our camp site. Will definitely stay again!
