We have a pretty good sized driveway that goes past the house where you can hook up to water and 30 amp. If you drive further past the house, you can dry camp in the woods. There is an area to turn around if not a big fifthwheel. No donation expected if dry camping. Suggested Local Attractions:Many things to do in a popular tourist area.

    Mark was the kindest, most generous BW host we’ve encountered yet. We stayed 3 nights here, in the beautiful early summer of Minnesota. Mark has 3 miles of trails on his land, and you’ve got to explore them! So so beautiful. We took his recommendations for visiting nearby Nisswa and the local landing, and they did not disappoint either. We had a couple things we needed to fix on the RV, and Mark was incredibly gracious in letting us borrow any tool we needed. Thank you for an amazing, beautiful stay!

    We spent just one night with our hosts, Mark and Kay, but left with new friends! Due to recent rains, we were unable to pull into his yard area that they had set up, but he had use use his wide driveway instead. We have a 37' 5th wheet and had no issues turning it around. Enjoyed walking the trail he has cut on his property and enjoyed the local wildlife. Before we left, we were able to get some good tips from them on our future destinations.

    M met us when we arrived, to show us where to find everything, then kindly, purposely left us to back in without a witness, he's so considerate and kind. He told us all the best spots and activities, always with interest, and his big, warm smile. If You're around in the summer on a Wednesday, go see the turtle races in Nisswa. You'll enjoy M and K's lovely spot in the woods.

    A Spot in the Woods was such a lovely stop. We wish we had had more time to stay and explore the beautiful lakes. The host was gracious and kind and offered delightful conversation. The parking was level and easy - just a quick back-in (or you could turn around). The surroundings were so serene. We let our dog run and explore, enjoyed dinner outdoors in a lovely sitting area. What a perfect spot to spend a few days - or in our case - a quick overnight with electricity and water fill. Thank you papa56458 for having us! We hope to visit again next summer.
