Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We farm the family farm and I am semi retired now. I also drive my semi in the 5 state area. We live in southern Minnesota on what was once was prairie. We now live among corn and soybean fields.
We love camping and meeting new people. We have also done some traveling over seas.
We like riding bike and kayaking in the summer and down hill skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.
My wife is a retired florist and bookkeeper. She loves working in her flower gardens, scrapbooking and making cards.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We have not been Boondocking, yet. We like to camp at State Park Campgrounds and near a lake or bike trails. We like to get to know other campers and share a camp fire.

prairie farm's Hometown

our home town does not have many amenities, but it does have a dump station. We live close to a town about 20 Minutes away with grocery stores, a small mall, lakes for boating, bike and walking trails, & swimming pool. In August they host the County Fair. 45 minutes from us the town has a larger shopping area, a state park with water falls and a herd of buffalo that you can view.

Beautiful Space!!!

The hosts were absolutely delightful! They greeted us in the driveway and helped show us to a spot. We had access to electrical which was awesome! They put on a fire pit for us and let us pick some fresh raspberries which were amazing. The space was beautiful with flowers and gardens and their farm in the background. Perfect spot for an overnight stay. Highly recommend!

Quick quiet stop

We pulled in at evening time and left in the morning but they were so friendly and helpful and kind and we really wish we could’ve stayed longer to chat more and enjoy their beautiful yard.

A wonderful stay with a wonderful host

Prairie Farm is such an apt name for this wonderful boondockerswelcome host located near Truman, MN. We were met on arrival and provided with an information sheet that provided some background about the farm, emergency and contact information, local attractions, stores, etc; a thoughtful and appreciated touch as well as a memento of our stay here. They really have a beautiful farm and were so gracious and hospitable. It was so quiet and peaceful. Beautiful trees all around the yard, a stately cottonwood in the large back yard. Everything is so beautifully maintained. We got to eat some corn from their garden, which was really quite good. They have rock stacking creations around the property that we found interesting. We used their 30 amp hookup, though they also had 50 amp available. They offered water but we were pretty full so didn’t need to take advantage of that. The weather was beautiful so we didn’t use the 30 amp hookup much for A/C but we did use it a bit for TV. Their wifi wasn’t necessary as we already knew our follow on destination for tomorrow. T-Mobile signal varied from one to two bars but we didn’t put up the cell booster as we didn’t need internet access this time around. These are wonderful down to earth people that reminded us of family roots in neighboring South Dakota. This is a great experience and we would love to stay again if we find ourselves in the area.

Wonderful stay

Our host were wonderful and gracious, very nice quiet country place. They had a plug in, if you wanted. A place for your trash, also said if we needed water we could fill up. We just plugged in. I would definitely like to stay again.

Fantastic hospitality and stay!

Thank you to Prairie Farm for the warm welcome, the peach dessert, and the wonderful visit! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back!

There are several places for 50amp service and the hosts were more than happy to fill our fresh tank. The property itself is well worth the tiny trip off the beaten path. It is a gorgeous home preserved from the early 1900s. The yard is beautifully landscaped, and we loved sharing a campfire and stories in their awesome fire pit.

Fantastic!

Charmingly Beautiful

These super sweet hosts have an amazing country farm that is so quiet and peaceful. It was certainly a lovely place to rest after a long day of traveling. The scenery was spectacular with green grass, beautiful trees, and lovely flower gardens. Especially loved watching and listening to the birds chirping. We highly recommend these awesome hosts and hope to meet up with them again in future travels.

A Restful place in the country

Prairie Farm is easy to find just a little ways down a very well maintained county road. The site was level, easy to pull thru, and offered 50 Amp electric and water.

We spent a very restful night after being welcomed and made to feel at home.

We will request again when in the area and recommend to others.

Lovely location and nice hosts!

This was a really quiet and rural location, easy to get to down a short gravel road. Hosts were so very nice to accommodate me on short notice. They provided me with much needed electricity so I could stay warm with my 2 cats! I would have enjoyed hanging out with them a bit more but it didn't work out with our schedules. They seem really knowledgeable about all things RV.

Very peaceful spot!

We quite enjoyed our stay here! Our hosts were very friendly and inviting. Thier place is quiet and peaceful. We were greatful for a place to stop and get some work done, and still have a big area for our dog to play ball. And the long country road made for nice evening stroll.

Garden Oasis Social Hour

We had a great time here on our second visit. It was so nice to spend a few extra days for more conversation, card games and pizza al fresco. We returned favor by hosting a taco night followed by dessert. There was a strong storm that knocked down some trees the day after we arrived, but we enjoyed helping clean up the debris on the farm the following day complete with tractor ride! There is plenty of room for our big rig here. It's ez to get to and roads are nice and open. Hosts are so friendly, they are like family to us now... in a good way!

Peaceful and easy

This was a perfect quiet spot for our family of four after a longer travel day. It was lovely eating in the screened gazebo overlooking their gorgeously maintained gardens. We woke to birds singing and were able to peacefully drink our coffee and look over our next plans while the kids slept in. The physical location is very easy for a big rig and tow vehicle to pull in, around and out and they even offered 50 amp electric. The hosts had helpful maps prepared of the area as well as a little history of the farm and how to use things while there. They are obviously caring and thoughtful people, and that is exactly what I want my kids to learn from our year on the road-- all the ways people are kind and caring in our country and how families have settled and taken care of the land. I loved learning the history of the home and meeting a sibling who was visiting as well.

Beautiful Setting!

Very nice people who provided us with a beautiful view of their garden. We had everything we needed, and they gave us information about the surrounding area. Easy drive off the interstate; we felt very welcome and would definitely stay here again.

Sweet Hosts

Our stay there was wonderful. 50 amp electric was wonderful. This is a really quiet and peaceful place. Super sweet people, she had a map of the nearest town with lakes we could take our boards to play! The afternoon storm was bringing hail and they even offered for us to ride out the storm in the basement if we needed. Would definitely recommend this stop!

Oasis in prairie farm

They are wonderful hosts and invited us into their garden oasis for lovely conversation. This Boondockers parking space is everything a big rig needs. Thank you so much.

such a gift!!!

The prairie farm hosts were SO WONDERFUL!! We were incredibly (and embarassingly) late, and they didn't even blink twice... we were welcomed with kindness and grace. Spent a little time talking in the morning learning a bit about the property and this lovely couple. Such a pleasant experience! Would (and hope/plan to) glam-dock here again. Thanks very much!

Had a beautiful garden tour!!

These "friends" are almost our neighbors...We thought it would be fun to check out a boondocker nearby so stayed one night at their farm. Their flower garden in the back of the house is something to behold...beautiful. Lots of flowers, a pond with a trickle of water running, beautiful rocks etc. etc. We sat in their screened-in-porch on the patio and had a nice visit. Wish we could have visited longer, but we were anxious to get on the road the next am...so missed saying goodbye. We would suggest that you book a night with them.
