It was so neat to be exactly where Laura was, wading in Plum Creek. We went in a warm day and you can tell why Laura was so tempted to go in. The water was cool and clear. No sign of leeches or crabs as...More

This was the best part of our Walnut Grove visit. The quietness of the prairie coupled with the knowledge that this was the spot where the Ingalls initially stayed was very powerful. I imagine that feeling the hot sun and sandy bottom of Plum Creek...More

We visited with our family of 7 and enjoyed the site very much. The site was easily assessable by vehicle, even for our 33-foot long RV. The site is in private property, and a small donation is requested. It is worth the price!

Loved the entire town. Take time to visit all the wonderful places. The museum, cafe and all the town. Could not stop smiling.

I think $5 is a bit excessive fee to look at a creek and climb a hill to look at a couple signs, but if being in historical places is important to you, you should do it once. The creek was moving faster and was...More

What could have been a beautiful and peaceful visit to the site of Laura Ingalls dugout home on the bank of Plum Creek turned out to be a horror movie of swarms of mosquitos attacking us. Wish we could have stayed for the gorgeous views...More
