Peter was an excellent host, we were late riding in on our bikes from Vancouver on the Galloping Goose (the site is about 1km right off the Goose) and it was getting dark. The entrance to the site is hard to see in the dark and Peter waited for us in his car at the end of the driveway to make sure we arrived safely and found the place. He stayed with us lighting up the site with his headlights till we got our tent up. Very welcoming and friendly! In the morning we got a tour of the farm and animals. Lovely spot, and a great stop along the way if you're riding the Galloping Goose all the way to camping at the Potholes (which we did)
