About
Step back in time while you revel in the serenity of RV camping at a unique historic site where the echoes of the past meet the tranquility of the present. Imagine parking your RV amidst the charm of a faithfully recreated civilian fort dating back to the year 1864, a sanctuary that once stood as a beacon of safety and community. This picturesque camping destination offers more than just a spot to rest; it is an immersive experience into the life and times following the Dakota uprising. Stroll through a well-preserved 1873 farmhouse that whispers tales of agrarian life from centuries ago. Let the timeless serenity of the 1902 church envelop you, preserving the spiritual heritage of its congregation. Explore the 1900 summer kitchen, a testament to the ingenuity and resilience of early settlers. A robust stockade stands guard, a witness to the need for protection in unsettled times, while a functional blacksmith shop clinks with the memory of skilled craftspeople shaping the tools of everyday life. Look out across the landscape from the lookout tower and visualize the expansive views settlers beheld as they watched for friends and foes alike. Uncover the subterranean secrets of a sod house, an extraordinary example of sustainable living in a bygone era, and marvel at the engineering prowess evident in the gristmill. Enrich your knowledge of the past with a visit to the on-site museum, housing artifacts and stories that bring history to life. This RV camping location is not just a place to park; it's a portal to the past, offering a serene escape with a historical twist that educates and entertains. Whether you're a history buff, a lover of nature, or simply seeking a unique getaway, this site provides a picturesque backdrop and a connection to the pioneering spirit that shaped the region. Come for the comfort of your RV, stay for the whispers of history that surround you.
