Hodge Lodge Native Camp
Peter and Nadine were a lovely couple, very friendly and helpful. The land was lush and even know we were close to the highway we still felt the nature vibes. Our dogs had plenty of room to run, and the kiddies loved it! The trains passing were fun for them too and we barely noticed the noise. It was close enough to a town. We stay for 4 nights and think it’s a great little spot we’d recommend it

Hodge Lodge Glamping Cabin
The cabin is beautifully built with luxurious finishes, wasn't expecting that, so was pleasantly surprised by all the creature comforts. The property has plenty of space for kids and pets to run and play. If traffic noise bothers you then this may not be the location for you as the cabin is close to the highway, but it didn't bother us at all. It was also the Easter long weekend so there would have been more traffic than normal. There was the odd train passing through on the opposite side of the property to the cabin, again the noise wasn't a bother but it may be to some people. Others especially with kids will probably love seeing the trains come past. There are ear plugs in the cabin if you need them to block out the noise at night, but we didn't need to use them as it is pretty quiet inside if you shut the windows at night. I do suggest bringing dry kindling with you or finding some around the property on the first day as there is a lot of dew fall during the night so keep it under cover to dry out. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend the property to others.

Hodge Lodge Powered Camp
Easy rider
Loved everything about Hodge Lodge. Easy check in, friendly host, power available and the place all to ourselves (and the dogs loved the space to run and explore). Added bonus was the wildlife on the water/ lake on the property. For transparency: yes you can hear both the road and the train, but it didn’t both us at all.

Very nice property! Noisy, nestled inbetween the highway and train line, but quiet from people! Very convenient night stay.
