Schmidt Farm is located in the beautiful hills of southeast Minnesota. Bordering the east side of Forestville State Park, we offer the opportunity to explore both private and public lands. With diversity in locations from easily accessible drive in sites to remote wilderness camping, you can choose a campsite to fit your own vision of a perfect experience. 

What's there to do? Hiking on- or off-trail, exploring, wildlife watching, horseback riding (horses not provided), stargazing, foraging, fossil hunting, campfires and enjoying solitude. Nearby, you can access the Root River for trout fishing, tubing and canoeing/kayaking. A short drive into Preston gets you to the Root River Trail system well known by bicycling enthusiasts. The tourist destination town of Lanesboro is a 12 miles scenic drive away.  

This is an active working farm that we are welcoming visitors to come to, camp on and enjoy with us. We ask that you be respectful of the land and animals and understand this is, first and foremost, a farm. 

Access for vehicles may be limited during wet conditions.

This property is truly a treasure, diverse in terrain and outdoor opportunities. The more remote campsites are best suited for tent camping. The higher elevation areas are best suited for vehicles, campers and equine rigs.

*Please note access for campers & large rigs may be limited during wet conditions. Alternative parking on gravel based driveways will be offered.
