Our camping site is located in our backyard. The space is large enough to handle any size camper but the weight is the limiting factor because you are parking on grass. Access is down gated road next to a lake. Campfire location next to the water. Plenty of firewood available. Eagle nest in the yard.
Backyard parking: You can come and go during daylight hours. Access is with a gated road. 15 amp electric available with a long extension cord.
No loud music. This is generally a quiet neighborhood.
3 miles of paved road west of town. 300 yards of gravel to access our back yard. Excessive snow in the winter may make it impossible to drive to yard. The area is wooded.
We are home most of the year. Please contact us to check our schedule. Snow may limit access to the parking location.
2 golf courses in the area. Many lakes. Minneapolis is 40 miles east.
Maggie and I needed a layover on our trip west and this was the perfect place! Loved the eagles nest right outside my window but my favorite was the young doe trying to play with an orange cat who wanted nothing to do with her at dusk!
The host was very welcoming and the location on the lake was great. We even had an eagles nest with young in a tree next to our RV.
We had a great stay and the kids really loved being able to play on the trampoline and swing set! We loved seeing a hawk and deer in the yard, too! Very grateful for the use of utilities during our stay as well! Thanks so much!!
KNH Traveler was way above and beyond hospitable. We loved our tour. He gave us a quick tour of the property after we asked, and allowed our kids to use his swing set. I would go out of my way to stay here next time because we enjoyed it so much.
This was a very nice stop. Ned is super helpful and knowledgeable. He even backed our rig down his driveway for us. We had a nice time visiting on his back deck with a beautiful view of the lake he lives on. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Ned!
We had a great stay at KNH very hospitable host!
Lovely, quiet area. The bald eagles sightings and nest was a plus. I wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy the lake front.
Somehow I missed giving this review last year. I want to correct that because I would stop at this location again without hesitation. We were parked in the driveway as a family with a bunch of children were parked on the lower lot. We were able to level without any problem. The host invited us to a campfire with the other guests which we thoroughly enjoyed.
I had a lovely drive out to this host's site. The host was very nice and helpful and I would have enjoyed more RV chatting but the weather was really awful, cold and raining! Water and 15amp electric was offered. There's a gorgeous place to sit in the back overlooking the lake, saw a couple of rabbits, drank my wine. 😊 The driveway is relatively long and winding, the host very graciously and expertly backed my little travel trailer to a level parking spot by the house. Quite impressive.
We stayed with these hosts a year a ago and appreciated their hospitality. This stay was as pleasant as the last. They are very helpful and we would definitely recommend checking this place out if your traveling through the area.
KNH met us at the end of the drive to assist in backing down his driveway. Beautiful shaded area! Perfect for us.
He’s been traveling quite a while, learned a lot from him. Nice place, right on the lake.
Awesome people and very nice to chat with. They helped back me down the drive, offered water to fill and told us some great stories. Very thankful we were able to stay here and meet this family!! Nice location and neighborhood very close to everything.
Our host made us feel welcome. After showing us the eagle's nest in one of his trees, he sat out back talking with us while we watched dusk fall over the lake.
Really nice view on lakeside property. It felt like being out in the wilderness. Deer walked by within 10 feet of my RV and looked in the window.
Wonderful backyard overlooking Buffalo Lake. In the evening, the deer came down to eat the grass.
Great place to relax. Wonderful host !
KNH Traveler was a fantastic host! Met us as we arrived & helped us get pulled in and situated. So friendly 😊 Had a nice chat about where we'd both been recently and gave us recommendations on what to check out next time we're back in MN (since we were only passing through overnight). Absolutely gorgeous location. Hope to visit again at some point. Wonderful experience, fantastic host!
This was our first boondockes welcome experience and the bar has been set extremely high! Our host was extremely accommodating. He helped guide us in, provided a 110 extension cord for comforts which is all we needed.
The spot is far enough away from the house and any one to feel like a private island (of course it's not an island). We saw deer passing by, bunnies, and our boys kept busy with the very many frogs in the grass. We could see the bald eagle's nest right above us but they we're on vacation during our overnight stay.
There was also a private community boat launch and dock which our son enjoyed fishing at.
Incredible stay, I'd recommend it to anyone else and would return!
Thank you so much for allowing us to camp in your backyard. We truly enjoyed our stay. The property is beautiful with very nice view of the lake. The playset was a nice bonus for the kids as was the view of the bald eagle/nest.
Enjoyed sitting around the campfire getting to know our host and other guests.
This was our first time to try Boondockers Welcome and we couldn’t be more pleased. KNH Traveler was very welcoming, helped us get settled in, made sure we were comfortable and gave us lots of great tips for things to do in the area. We enjoyed watching the eagles in their nest (on site) and flying, the deer and overall serene location. Would highly recommend these hosts.
My daughter & I are traveling from the East coast to Oregon. We were having a hard time finding a camping spot & decided to contact the host. Even though we did not contact them until 3:00 the day of our stay, they got back to us right away. They have a beautiful spot on the water which is quite secluded & even has their own nature center in the backyard...2 young bald eagles nesting in the pine! I hope you both can plan a visit to the north east states of VT, NH & ME sometime. Thank you for the peaceful & quiet nights rest & being such a wonderful host.
This is an exquisite location on the Lake. Because of our size (40') we stayed in the driveway, but the location on the lower rear of the yard is right on the lake and looks like a magical location. Or host was welcoming and very accommodating and we had a lovely visit. If you are parking in the driveway, it is a bit narrow so you may want to get out and have confidence in your backing skills. We got a glimpse of the Eagles in flight which was spectacular. Perhaps the two baby eaglets will be flying by the time you visit.
Not that Barton Ave NW turns left twice before you get to #672 so pay attention!
Lots of green grass and great weather. We were able to see the eagles. Made sure we got settled and hooked up. Highly recommend this host.
Our GPS steered us the wrong way on our way to KNH Traveler. Ned was gracious enough to come rescue us, and get us settled in his driveway. Our hosts have a gorgeous yard and we enjoyed a great evening on their back deck, overlooking the lake, chatting about trips taken, plans to come, and dream destinations. Wonderful hosts!
We stayed a couple of nights at KNH Traveler, it it was great. We are new to Fulltime living, and RVing in general, it is always fun to arrive to our next location in the evening, and see it for the first time in the light the next morning. The next morning we woke up to a beautiful sunrise over the lake, it was breathtaking. We are blessed to have been able to stay in this fantastic, private, beautiful site for a few days. Most of all, the host was more than helpful, guiding us in, and offering advice to us newbies. We highly recommend staying here.
We were met at a nearby park by our host who guided us to the site. Nice, quiet location beside the lake. We had a short stay but were able to see the eagle nest near our site. Would not hesitate to stop back again.
