The campground is fairly spacious, as it occupies 37 acres of land in a relatively rural area. One of the standout features of the campground is its access to the Zumbro River, which Tracy, one of the owners, says people can use to "cool off on a hot summer day." She also mentions that the fork in the river is "shallow, clear, and refreshingly cool all summer." The campground also has a gazebo with outdoor games, and oftentimes food trucks come to the campground on weekends, providing visitors with the opportunity to enjoy a variety of meals without leaving the campground.

The park is located near several nearby communities, including Pine Island, Oronoco, and Rochester, where guests can find restaurants, theaters, and shopping. The surrounding area offers attractions such as Gold Rush Days in Oronoco and several breweries and wineries, namely South x Southeast Brewing Company in Pine Island.

Hidden Meadows RV Park & Campground was founded in 1965, and it was originally a farm. The previous owners turned the farm into a campground which gradually expanded over time. According to Tracy, the former name of the campground had Native American heritage to it, and the name "Hidden Meadows" came about between the years of 2005 and 2015. The area around it was previously inhabited by a Native American tribe known as the Wazionja people, as reported by Tracy. Tracy mentions that the Zumbro River, which runs through the campground, was a significant resource for the indigenous people who resided there for centuries. 

The current owners, Tracy and Daren, and their sons, Corey and Tanner, purchased the campground in 2020. Tracy and Daren, who had been avid campers for over 22 years prior to their purchase, saw an opportunity to combine their love of camping with their business acumen and provide a peaceful environment for other campers. Before the purchase, the campground was in need of some updates and improvements, which the new owners were happy to provide. They added full hookups to all water and electric sites, new roads, and gravel pads for all weekend and monthly guests. Additionally, they added 19 new permanent seasonal sites, a new water line throughout the park, and various amenities such as a dog park and volleyball court. The owners, who also run an excavation company, have worked hard to maintain and improve the campground over the course of their ownership. In terms of future plans, Tracy mentions, "We believe in being environmentally aware, so we are currently looking into adding solar panels to support our electric usage."
