Married 35+ years. Early camping was a sleeping bag…sometimes in the luxury of the back of our truck. A splurge purchase of a tent upgraded us to the next level. After the first camping trip with children (an under 2 years old and an 8 month old) in addition to one cantankerous old dog, a young golden retriever and a cat AND an unexpected torrential rain it was decided our tent camping days were over... possibly ALL camping. Luckily a 1983 Coleman pop up trailer materialized and our camping experiences continued. We were living the good life at that point! Fast forward to our empty nest years. We found ourselves enjoying several different 30’+ class C’s then downsized to a Class B with slide outs and now our easy-breezy, park anywhere Travato. Still learning how to take our time and allow the road and our intuition to guide us.

This lovely location is a delight and the hosts are wonderful. Traveling northward along the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway in mid-August, making my way to Apostle Islands NL, the host offered a peaceful respite and great recommendations for additional stops along the route that I would have overlooked otherwise. Responsive and accommodating! I enjoyed chatting about there beautiful location and travel experiences with them. Note, my 23’ van easily maneuvered into the parking area, but larger rigs may find pulling into this location a challenge. Please read the host’s specific notes about access.

Kathy and Mike are great hosts. They live right on a beautiful lake and offered me to go on deck and dock, gorgeous . Walked paved roads and was very quiet. I didn’t have cell service ATT but offered Wi-Fi…mine didn’t work unless on deck….could be because of gorgeous pines I was camped in. Yes, would go back

We really enjoyed our stay with Kathy & Mike. The area is close to Hayward for day trips. The location is very quiet. If you enjoy walking/running there are some great roads. Very kind, generous hosts!

Can hosts get any better then Kathy and Mike, I doubt it. They were just fantastic. We had access to sit by the lake which was absolutely beautiful. They offered us the use of their kayaks, which we did and have a lovely paddle on the lake in the evening. They were friendly and offered us everything and more. We were parked in the trees and it was level and private. Thank you so much, would love to come back for a visit.

What a beautiful location! The hosts, Mike and Kathy, were very accommodating and quick to respond. We have 2 dogs that were very welcomed, and we were able to walk them on their access road which was not heavily used. Would be happy to stop there again.
