A Pleasant Surprise

Prairie Cove Campground

We chose to stay at the Prairie Cove Campground in Ashby, MN for no other reason than convenience. It’s a nine hour drive from Minneapolis to our next major stop at Theodore Roosevelt National Park on the western edge of North Dakota. We don’t do nine hour drives, so we needed a place to overnight. Prairie Cove, immediately off of I-94, was about as convenient as we could ever hope for. We expected it to be a noisy parking lot. What we found instead was a beautiful lake among rolling hills with flocks of Great Blue Heron and Snowy Egrets. Every campground should be like this.

    What a pleasant surprise for you off the interstate. I honestly had to look on a map to see exactly where Ashby is located. I pride myself in knowing my Minnesota towns, but not this one. So…, I see you were near Fergus Falls. When you return to Minnesota, be sure to stop here. You would love the Viking Cafe in the downtown. Like walking into a cafe of yesteryear with the old booths and lunch counter.

      We’re always appreciative of tips from people who know an area – especially tips about where to eat. Thanks!
