First the facts, then the details.
Facts: The driving directions were clear and easy. The space is super simple. There are two small houses near a circle drive and a horse barn/pasture off to the left. To the right of the circle there’s a well maintained lawn and a run down old barn which we did not explore. Beyond all that there is a large open field of flowers lined by groves of trees on the property line. Other fields surrounded ‘our’ field behind the trees, so it felt quite private. The host told us we could camp close to that barn where the grass was mowed or basically anywhere that wasn’t directly in the front yard or in the horses space.
This space could be vastly improved with access to a garden hose/drinking water situation. It wasn’t a huge deal, but it’s def inconvenient to have to bring in water.
We drove through the field to the middle/far side and just pitched our tent. It’s not private, like with barriers, it’s private because you’re just so far, but completely out in the open under the prairie sky.
The field was absolutely blooming with flowers and knee high grass, which is visually idyllic and lovely. It would make pretty pictures for insta if you’re into that. Practically though, we stepped out of the car into a cloud of insects in the early evening. Less biting, more buzzing, but overwhelming anyway. We frantically pitched our tent and stressed a little, but after we stopped stirring them up, it was a very moderate bug situation (for a Minnesota evening). We sat out and watched the sunset and grilled and it was nice. I say this not to warn you off, but to wait 10 minutes before you freak. It’s fine; lots of butterflies and crickets. If you can’t deal, camp on the mowed grass.
There is no bathroom of any kind. This was entirely fine for us, but it’s not for everyone.
