DIRECTIONS TO RUNNING DOG RANCH FOLK CRAFT AND LEARNING CENTER
Running Dog Ranch (RDR) is located on a Swedish farm site that is approximately two miles from the original Laura Ingalls Wilder birth site. Our log home and buildings are very similar to the original house that was described in the book, “Little House in the Big Woods.” We are nestled in a farm community and the ranch is located at N293/N295 on the East Pine Creek Road/197th Street depending on the direction you are traveling.
Online maps do not give the best directions to the ranch, so we are offering directions from several locations (Stockholm, Maiden Rock, Spring Valley, Plum City, WI) to assist you. Use online maps to find these locations. If you have other questions, please feel free to contact Corrine at 651-206-6719. Happy traveling in this beautiful area.
