We have 2.5 acres in a quiet, wooded setting where you can enjoy watching birds, bunnies, squirrels and maybe some deer. We are located 30 miles from Itasca State Park. We are about 1/4 mile from Heartland State Trail, which connects to Paul Bunyan Trail. If you have a boat, we are close to the boat launch on beautiful Leech Lake. The town of Walker has some fun shops to browse in, as well as a brewery and some good resturaunts. If you prefer wineries, you can check out Forest Edge Winery in nearby Laporte. Walker has a nice city park and beach for swimming and picnics.

Nice spot

We have a large rig, and it fit nicely. Full hooks ups and gravel pad was a bonus! Welcoming hosts in a quiet setting :)
Would stay again if travels bring us this way :)

A great home base for exploring the area

The hosts greeted us upon arrival and had great suggestions for things to do and places go in the area.

The hosts offer a flat parking area with FHU if you desire. This served as a great home base as we explored the cute town of Walker, Leech Lake, nearby trails and Itasca State Park.

Thanks for the stay! : )

Great Place!

We had a wonderful time just relaxing in the trees. The hosts were great to help and chat for awhile. What a beautiful spot. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect location

We spent one night at Birds Nest as a stopover so we did not see the hosts much. When we did see them they were friendly and helpful. The site was perfect, better than a lot of campgrounds we have stayed at. The water hookup was really nice, first water hookup we have had in two weeks. Sewer hookup included as well, cannot get better than that.

Nice visit

Really nice folks with a nice gravel pad and full hookups.

Great rural stay near RailTrail

This host's spot is outstanding. They offer FHU and a level parking area that is semi-private. Just down the road is one of the many paved railtrails in this area. The neighborhood is quiet and secluded. Birds Nest was easy to communicate with and very responsive and helpful. Thank you.

Wonderful host and quiet spot

We enjoyed our stay here. Our host greeted us and made us feel immediately welcome and comfortable. We enjoyed chatting with her so much. Once set up, we had fun watching a pilated woodpecker and enjoyed the sounds of the many birds in the area. We went for a stroll on a back road, picking raspberry's and blackberries along the way. Wonderfully relaxing--just what we needed!

Wonderful stay with FHU!

We greatly enjoyed our 5 night stay at the Birds nest. The hosts were very kind and they shared information about local places to go. We went to Itasca State Park, checked out the Walker playground and area, biked the trail near their house, and even visited their library. We had a wonderful time and the full hook ups were certainly appreciated too! Thank you!!

Perfect spot

This was such an easy spot gracious hosts. They provided water electric and sewer hook ups. We were nestled in a woodsy spot for the night. Very nice and quiet.

Peace and quiet

The hosts are friendly, wonderful people. We enjoyed the peace of the woods and the many creatures that inhabit the area. Deer, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks and a wide variety of birds. Very relaxing. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful and more than accommodating!

We had a delightful stay in a spot with all the necessities so we could take in all the surrounding sites! Hosts are wonderful!!!!

Awesome Stay !!

We stayed at this location for two nights with same day notice after our plans fell through on going further north. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed being parked on their property, the birds and squirrels kept us entertained throughout the days and the fireflies flittered around at night. We were tired from traveling and just needed to chill, and this was the perfect place. Visiting with these hosts was so great, we came to feel like we've known them for years. I hope our paths cross again some day !! Travel safe.!

Excellent Stop

Our host greeted us upon arrival and gave us a choice of two spots to park our RV — both offered the option of full hookups. This stop is conveniently located near Leech Lake & the town of Walker, with its choice of restaurants & even a brewpub. T&D were very helpful suggesting places to visit, & we had a couple of enjoyable chats. If in the area again, we would definitely request a visit.

Awesome time!

This site was in a beautiful location and close to paved biking trails. The cute town of walker is close. The hosts were so nice to let us stay, even though they had visiting company and were busy themselves.
Our host were the nicest of people!

Quiet and friendly.

Great stay with T&D. They were very warm and inviting and gave us several local recommendation s of things to see and do in the area. After spending some time together we felt like we had known them for a long time.
