Nothing but good things to say about Prairie View Camp! This was my first time using Hipcamp and I had a blast. Cynthia was beyond accommodating and I highly recommend staying on her property! Very private and relaxing-areas to hike and have bonfires. The outdoor shower is amazing and a nice option for multi-day camping. Can’t wait to go back!

Pleanty of hiking!Beautiful views!Relaxing camp sites!Very peaceful and quiet!

Prairie View Camp exceeded our expectations for our first Hipcamp stay! The campsite was very private and extremely quiet. I’m not sure how many campers Cynthia usually allows, but we were the only campers there for our visit. The prairie had nice mowed paths for some hiking and we were allowed to have our dog off the leash too! The views and sunsets were great as well!

The sunsets were great at Prairie View Camp!

Love this place! The shower, sink and composting toilet make the experience so easy! The sky, the prairie, the woods surround you! Views, breeze, quietness! And the host is both friendly and present and also provides plenty of privacy. I’ll be back many times.

PVC is so dreamy with rolling fields, mindfully tended property, a incredibly kind owner. The mown paths on the land take about 15 minutes to explore. Our camping area was within view of the house, which was fine with us. Cynthia built the sweetest outdoor shower (with hot water)! And she has a rescue pup who keeps a gentle eye on the farm’s goings on. It is refreshing to camp on soft, cool grass rather than gravel tent pads. And the sunsets...swoon! Trees support three hammocks, which we loved as well.

Amazing sunsets. Sweet apple tree along one of the walking paths.

Cynthia, we are sure knows this but for us her spot is a unique place on the planet. Amazing views, prairie grass and woods abound.

We only wish we could have stayed longer for hikes, maybe a tune or two and much more playtime with the pup💜

Thank you for sharing and spending time with us.

We weren't sure what to expect when we pulled up to Cynthia's 80 acre property. It was in the heart of the most beautiful, hilly, countryside surrounded by farms. The property had a smattering of buildings surrounding the campsites, including an adorable outhouse and outdoor shower. There were several very friendly people staying in the buildings, and Cynthia and her dog were relaxed and charming to be around. The meadows and woods nearby were perfect for taking short hikes. It is close to Lake Pepin, which was a beautiful place to visit. Altogether, it was a really great stay!

This is a beautiful spot on a farm turned prairie restoration. The camping area is fairly close to the house and bldgs, but looks out on to open prairie at the top of a bluff. One thought to contribute, is it can get windy, so set up appropriately. Had a great time, and it is back a ways into the Bluff area of SW Wisc, so getting there is a beautiful adventure too!
