A cut out pathway through our land brings you upon an open circle within a quiet area of our deciduous forest. This is where campers can set up tent around a rumble of rocks and enjoy a camp fire. If one wants to explore you may walk through some wooded trials to the back where it opens up to a lovely established Oak forest, while enjoying the fresh air and lush Forest growth!

We are conscientious about nature and the surroundings we live in.  If you are quiet and respectful and want a tranquil place to lay your head down, then this may be your escape. Please be courteous and abide by the Hipcamper rules.  

Please bring your own firewood to make that wonderful campfire you'd like to have.

We had a great time at this camp site! The site is very spacious and private - much better experience than camping at Ontario provincial parks with their crowded camp sites.

There were only two of us, however this camp site is great for large groups as you can fit several cars and tents if needed.

This camp site is about 1 hr away from Lion’s Head and 1.5 hr away from Tobermory & The Grotto.

As a relatively new camper, I couldn't have asked for a better host/camp site. The Zen Circle is secluded, private and cozy. It's close to several provincial parks and a handful of beautiful beaches. Meaford is a hidden gem. Although I didn't meet Jackie and Simona, all communication was kind and clear. I can recommend staying here!

Pros : Place is very quiet, intimate and very large.

Cons: Fireplace is beautiful, but not very pratice, it's very large, so unless you are able to have an enormous fire, you are too far to feel the heat from your campfire. Also, not very easy if you need to cook on the fire, you have to walk in the ashes to be able to cook on a grill for exemple.
Washroom is lovely but I would suggest having a tarp or something to be able to hide yourself from the rest of your group, especially at night if you go with a light
Not really a cons, as host cannot do anything about that but, be prepared for Lots of mosquitos, we did a 15 days trip around Ontario (Algonquin, Killarney, Bruce Peninsula...) and this was the place with the most of them.

Amazing hidden gem of a campsite. Extremely private, beautiful rock lined firepit, and very cute and convenient outhouse. Everything you could want for a bit of off the grid camping.

Thanks again! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was an amazing stay! The instructions for the site were clearly outlined and easy to follow. The hosts themselves were a delight to interact with - we got a bit lost on our way there and they took the time to guide us to the property. We were lucky enough to stay two nights and enjoyed beautiful skies and cheery fires both evenings.

The camp area is in a large enough clearing to provide an excellent view of the impressive starry skies but surrounded by enough trees so as to still feel like camping. With the proximity to national parks, easy access to groceries etc, I think this site would be ideal for anyone looking for a quiet space to enjoy nature.
