Please note: if using instant booking, please let us know approximately what time you’ll be arriving so we can meet you at the entrance. For campers, booking earlier, please let us know approximately what time you’ll be arriving on the day of your check in.  Come relax and recharge on our secluded land located only 40 minutes from Ottawa and 1h20 from Montreal.  Nestled in the untouched natural beauty of our wooded 130 acre homestead; we have carved out beautiful camp sites for fellow nature enthusiasts, so your not camping behind a house in an open field, this is  pure camping like it should be, We hope you enjoy the calming sounds of the running water nearby, the lengthy trails surrounding us and the privacy that our land has to offer you. We invite you to bring your water sport equipment, ATVs and sense of adventure!  Keep in mind, that we also have an inventory of equipment that can be rented out such as: a canoe, bike with attached child chariot, tandem bike, tent rental and more.  Please reach out to us if you need any additional items for your stay and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

Nearby attractions include but aren’t limited to: Calypso Water park, Foret Larose, Papanak zoo, Park Omega (33 km away), St-Albert Cheese factory, Microbrasserie Cassel Brewery, Ferme Drouin and much more

Our hope is that guests leave our property feeling both grounded by the calmness of nature and exhilarated by the thrill of disconnecting from their day to day lives.  We look forward to meeting you and working with you to ensure that your experience at our campsite is one that you will remember and will look forward to rebooking in the future.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or requests. Thank you!***Site 6 and 10 are ideal for RVs, the other campsites are geared towards smaller sized camping set ups. ***Please keep in mind that this style of camping is more OFF THE GRID  than a typical camp ground with electricity. We highly recommended that you arrive at least two hours before sunset so that you can set up your camp with some natural light.

This was an awesome camping experience. Gerry is an awesome host and helped us carry items and firewood to our site deep in the woods! The sites are awesome (We had site 5). Good distance from each other and we were able to enjoy our music and fireworks for Canada Day! If you are looking for a site close to Ottawa to camp, this is your place!

It's not professional at all! The host decided to cancel my reservation while I'm on the road to the camping site. I have invited some friends and it's really a very bad experience.
I definitely don't recommend this host at all.

Great campsites by the water very beautiful area. The wife and I along with our dog had a great canada day weekend. We will definitely be back. Gerry was very helpful and even let us relocate once we got there so our dog could be more secluded. Great fishing also. The wife caught a 20" catfish.

Gerry's land is beautiful. Situated in 130 acres that cover both the beautiful La Nation river and the Lemieux Mudslide of 1993, you can camp in all sort of locations. We stayed by a ledge overlooking the water. Most sites are accessible by car, except for a few true backcountry sites which are accessed via trails.
Trails explore the forest down to the water and through the mudslide. There is also canoes to access the river. 10/10 can't wait to come back!

This location is special to any nature nut for its slanted trees alone. An after effect of the ice storm years ago.
Makes for some wicked hammock camping sites, yet said sites are large enough for any tent with accessories, all sitting on a ridge with great fishing on one side and great bedrock micro-rapids on the other.
Its a local gem.

Comfy.PeaceOh.. that's a nice Snoopydog.
