I am a solo minimal as possible camper. I packed in at the tail end of winter and tarp camped. Quiet secluded. A nice creek running through. Lots of trees. Host Ted was very quick on responding to any questions or concerns.

If you want absolute primitive camping at its best, this is it. Beautiful place, remote and peaceful. Met Ted on the way in, he have us directions to the area to camp. Found a great location to set up. Just make sure prepared for no facilities.

Beautiful piece of wooded property. We found a site right next a babbling stream that seemed too good to be true. Gorgeous place, highly highly recommend.

Very cool place. If you're looking for privacy, this is where to go. Very close to Nerstrand Park. Great place for an easy weekend in nature.

We found a beautiful place right on the creek to set up camp. Private deeps woods, bit we were still able to drive (4x4) very close to our desired spot. Heavily wooded, accordingly very private

I really liked the place, had nice spots for tents and was open in many locations for tents. The creek was very soothing for sleeping at night and there is a cool cracked rock that was a cool find! I’m very glad I chose to camp here!

We love Prairie Creek and Ted is one amazing host! Peaceful, quiet, beats the state park with trails and waterfalls galore! Bugs are manageable to hammock in the trees all through the night. Skies are big and stars bright with easy access to all sites that you can hand pick for your liking! Fire pit is massive and cooks up some great hobo packs! It will always be a treat to stay at Prairie Creek
