Roseau is a hometown place

This is a great boondocker host couple. B has a wealth of experience with campers, especially the electronics, and he took some hours to help me update my electrical system and check my brakes. I am very grateful for his time and expertise. The main attraction in Roseau is the Polaris plant. There was no tour in the Covid time but the Experience Center was open and is a great place to see the history of the snowmobile

Charming couple

Lively and interesting couple with vast boondocking experience. Scored some fresh tomatoes out of their garden. Hard to find nowadays. Much appreciated.

Loved it all!

Deb and Brad are wonderful hosts, giving us a taste (literally!) of life in the "Deep North." Had a great 2.5 mile walk with Brad and his dog, Rocky (one of the best trained animals you'll ever meet). They even treated us to breakfast with their fresh ground cream of wheat. Brad is an engineer, and his RV mods and bicycle expertise was impressive. Very welcoming, interesting folks. Their place is easy to get to, and we'd highly recommend staying here.

Let's put Roseau on the map

We had a great time visiting Roseau. The community is very welcoming.

Here are some of the highlights. Yes, this is far North, but you can go further and we did. We took our car on a little jaunt to Angle Inlet to get our photo at the most northern point of the contiguous United States. (bring your passport)

The Polaris tour was really good. You don't have to own a Polaris, but you can feel the passion in some of the visitors. Great tour to see snowmobiles and ATV's manufactured or born if you love your Polaris.

And our timing was good for fresh vegetables. The hosts have a bumper crop of fresh veg that really taste like vegetables.

We think all boondockers should make the journey to Roseau. It is a great place to start the Waters of the Dancing Sky Scenic Byway, Hwy 11, to International Falls and Voyageurs National Park.

And we washed our car at Sven and Ole's (Minnesota Cultural Event)
Where was Lena?

Thanks for hosting. We enjoyed.
