We have a 6.5-acre developing hobby farm currently with chickens, fruit trees and a garden. Our property backs onto Hayward Lake which is great for paddle boarding, kayaking and swimming. There are hiking trails to Ruskin Dam and around Hayward Lake. You can also enjoy fishing/floating across the street at the Stave River. Located north of Mission, BC, Hayward Lake offers an array of outdoor recreation for all seasons. Popular for its sandy beach and swimming in the warm summer months, or for the non-motorized boating making it ideal for Kayaking and canoeing year-round. There is also a specialized dog-friendly beach area where you are sure to make a splash and enjoy a fantastic summer spot together. We have 5 campsites to choose from, we hope that you enjoy your stay! UPDATE: Our driveway sustained some damage during the torrential rains in the fall of 2021. It is safe to drive and we are having it assessed for repairs. Sites #2 and #3 are closed for the 2022 camping season

It was a great location and so wonderful we could walk down to the lake. The outhouse and campsite was clean and tidy and so convenient that the outhouse was near each campsite.

Camping with baby
Tent camping was awesome and directions were clear. Hosts were incredible and very kind! We camped on this site with a soon to be 7 month old baby girl and we had no issues what so ever! We’d all definitely recommend this site and would visit again ☺️ Lots of mosquitos around the time we went - but that’s just nature haha. They also have an incredibly friendly dog who the baby just loved!!

Camping next to the lake
Nice place to staying, host were really nice and they allowed us to use the kayaks in the lake. Mosquitos were brutal, if you go there in summer time, take your precautions

Brent and Sherri were great hosts with a lovely space to camp. We had so much space and were minutes away from a beautiful lake. They were very quick to respond to any questions we had. Would definitely recommend

Last minute reservation
Coming from Nova Scotia , we stayed here very last minute as we had to leave our original booking because of the swarms of mosquitos! We very much enjoyed ourselves. We were in site 4(I believe) behind the horse stalls. It was very quiet and private. The trails down to the lake were beautiful. We hadn't rented kayaks but regretted it once we saw the lake! The driveway was tricky for us but we were in a '71 Volkswagen Westfalia.

I thoroughly enjoyed camping on Brent and Sherri's land! They were warm and accommodating, they even lent me a hatchet to chop firewood! Their property was beautiful, with drinkable water from the hose. They also had berries that they generously let us pick some fruits from! I would definitely recommend staying with them!

Last minute camp spot
We were looking for a last minute camp spot close to Golden ears, and this spot was so cool. We wandered the garden, chatted with Sherri who gave is a great little property history, and walked down to the lake. Was a beautiful hipcamp experience.

We weren't sure where we could swim on the trail and went to a public beach instead. The campsite was nice, with flat ground, a firepit and a picnic table. The hosts provided firewood, and their dog Jack was very calm and nice.

This hidden gem is close enough to the city yet far enough, away from the hustle and bustle. Site 1 or 4 are the best spots if you want to be close to a water source and the trail head. But both are super close to the chicken coop that it is highly recommended you bring ear plugs, especially if you’re a light sleeper. Sherri and her son, John, are awesome. Will most likely book a few nights stay before the summer ends

Loved our stay, would recommend over a drive-in BC Parks site. It's a 10 minute walk down to the water (some steps, could be challenging for older people / this is not wheelchair accessible). Not many people around this part of Hayward Lake and it seemed almost like a private lake for my group. I'd come back with a bigger group next time and book both sites 1 and 4 together as they are adjacent to each other. Thanks Brent and Sherri.

Best camping ever !
Hayward farms camping was completely stunning, we were totally amazed on the beauty of this place and the surroundings. We loved the trail and the breathtaking views at the end.

It was a cute spot nearby lake access! I especially enjoyed spending a day on the beach and by the lake. You get woken up to a rooster crowing in the morning. It's a cute hobby farm with ducks and chicken.

Your own private lake
It was an amazing experience. Almost a private camping spot with a short trail to the lake. No one was at this side of the lake when we took our inflatable boat for a ride there. Firewoods are available on the site to purchase (10$/bundle). Overall had a great experience and we would go back.

Camping with Babies!
Brent and Sherri were extremely accommodating and we had a number of pleasant interactions while camping on the property. The site was perfect for our two families with crawling young infants and had a decent amount of shade to hide out during the first heat wave of the season! The posting has some outdate information such as the firepit information. The site is also situated right next to the main residence and does have the occasional foot and vehicle traffic from the host and their family. Jack the dog was also amazing and stole our daughter's heart!

Clear directions made it easy to arrive late at night! Lower-clearance cars: definitely follow their instructions and take the first driveway turn, not the second (which Google brings you to!)

The location was in a nice setting on a farm close to Hayward lake and some trails. The site is close to the family home but it was still fairly private. There is a friendly dog on the property but he can roam free and there was dog poo on the site when we got there and some of us didn’t see it before stepping in it! The owners were super responsive and helpful.

Great site & not far from "town"
The site was very easy to find & the lots were nice & flat. Having drinkable water as well as chopped wood (for $10), on site was a great bonus. There is a very easy trail to hike that takes you around the Hayward Reservoir & to the dam. Would gladly stay here again. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely weekend at Hayward Farms. Brent and Sherri were really friendly and very accommodating to our group. We took the main site nearest the house. Plenty of space for our tents, we also had a couple of picnic tables and room for games. Highly recommend for a weekend getaway.

A Lovely Campsite on the Mountain
Brett and Sherri’s camp sites at Hayward Farms are lovely. Each is unique in its setting and layout and all have a composting toilet, a fire pit, a picnic table, a lidded trash can, and a recycling bin. There’s plenty of room for a vehicle and a tent. My nephew and I enjoyed the trail from the camp site to the lake and exploring the property. We visited the chickens both mornings we were there and had two lovely visits with Jacksie, their friendly dog. The space was clean, well-maintained, and a great little getaway. We’ll be sure to return.

What a spot. Trails to the lake, right from the camp spots. Rooster wake up call. Friendly pigs, kittens and a dog for neighbors. Giant cedars on the property. Lovely hosts. Way beyond our expectations.

Another great stay at hayward
Our third time back, a little different this time as fireban has been lifted, and it rained 😂 We were able to purchase a generous amount of wood onsite to enjoy during our stay. Site 1 is probably our favourite so far due to it being so close to the trail

It felt like entering a softer, gentler world when going up the drive to Brent and Sherri’s farm. If you want a family farm experience, this is it. Even their beautiful big dog wants you to enjoy your stay.

Amazing property! I would definitely recommend this spot for camping. Communication with the host was great! We had to leave earlier because of rain but the first two night were great! We loved the hiking trails down to the lake.
