Stay close to everything you want to do, but away from the crowds and tent cities! You'll love this tent site  (one of three on the property) 5 minutes from Wm. O'Brien State Park and the scenic St. Croix River, where you can hike, fish, swim, canoe, kayak and bike.

Mariposa is the largest of our three beautiful sites. A grassy area for your tent is surrounded by white pine, maple and fruit trees, and includes a fire ring so you can make s'mores under the stars. Mariposa overlooks a butterfly garden and is the closest to the bathroom. You'll see plenty of wildlife, including birds, deer and the occasional raccoon. Covered composting toilet, hand-washing sink and recycling bin shared by all campers. 

Discover nearby towns of Scandia (2 miles), which has miles of bike paths along ponds and lakes, and Marine on St. Croix (4 miles), a lovely historic village with an award-winning chocolate shop, wood-fired pizza, wine, ice cream, as well as the state's oldest operating general store (complete with wooden floorboards) Fifteen minutes south is Stillwater and 15 minutes north is Taylors Falls and even more state parks.

Robyn and Diedrie(?) were very welcoming and gave clear instructions on the use of the composting toilet and indications to look for to know they were home if we needed anything.
The toilet house was clean and also stored supplies for fire starting, cleaning, a few games for rainy days, and a few other things to borrow if needed.
They have three sites that are part of their backyard. Plenty of tree coverage for shade and each site has a fire pit. The sites are not separated/as private as we were expecting, but each does have plenty of space. All three sites were used throughout the weekend we were there (Memorial Weekend) and everyone was respectable of the shared backyard space we were set up in.
Short drive to Marine on St Croix which has a general store, ice cream shop, bar/restaurant, wine and chocolate bar, and a few other things. Willam O'Brien State Park is also very close for those interested in hiking trails or beach access.
We would stay again if we plan to explore more of the area another time.
