Camping & Tubing on the Zumbro River

Reads Park in Millville is just ten dollars a night to camp in. There is no running water except for the Zumbro River just a stones throw from your tent. Reads Park is named after Charles Read, founder of Millville. Reads Landing also bears his name. When the first post office was established in 1867, Charles Read was the postmaster out of his home.

I cannot believe how real it looked!

Tubing from Hammond right down to our campsite. We rented our tubes from Zumbro River Ratz. They also other rentals available. Reasonably priced, convenient, and very nice people!http://www.zumbroriverratz.com/



Margaret chose a raft opposed to a tube.






We pulled over a few times.

The days were warm, but thankfully the evenings were cool for sleeping.


The campsite is a bit rustic!


Eagles everywhere! Wish this photo was better..I had my camera ready for a flyby, but it was on the wrong settings.

Our site under the waxing moon. We heard at least two different kinds of owls at night.










A local gentleman who had heard there were children camping, brought over his horse and gave the girls a ride.
