The site was great! It was a perfect location if you want to go to either Lake St Peter or Mink Lake. We had the place all to ourselves and as first time campers, we now see why people love to go camping.

Brian and his family was so accommodating and we had a lot of great discussions with Brian. Can’t wait to go back! Come for the camping and stay for the chats. :)

It was very beautiful. We stayed at spot number 7 and there was a perfect view of the stars through the trees. Our dog loved running around and we loved exploring. Everyone was so kind to us and we have an amazing time. Plus the chickens were adorable, we even got to pet one !! Thank you so much for such a great weekend. We would love to come back again sometime.

We really enjoyed our time. Brian was an awesome host and has may recommendations for activities in the area. The sites are quite private and give off a back-country vibe while the main site provides a very 'community' type feel with welcoming hosts.

The hosts at Middle Earth were absolutely great and really friendly, making it an easy start to our trip. Having access to a kitchen was nice and convenient- saved us time in the morning as we headed out to the backcountry. It wasn't as private as we had hoped, but otherwise the site had enough of what we needed.

We only stayed a night on our way to Algonquin. Site was large, with lot of privacy. Only 2 min walk from the car and sleigh were available so it was easy to gey our things to the campsite. Host was very nice and provided lots of recommandations of things to do in the neighborhood (but we didn’t try them as we were going to Algonquin). The main site with washroom and shower was really appreciated and really clean.

Our camping weekend was great. Our site was the furthest from the main meetup area which is what we wanted. Both hosts were calm, friendly. This is a great location.

Middle Earth was fantastic. Brian and Kyla were very welcoming, kind, helpful, and attentive. They accommodated our late check-in and told us about a great secret spot nearby.

The sites were nice and private, the ground was soft, and access to hot water just a few minutes away was a blessing. Would recommend!

Brian and Kaitlyn was awesome... they let us choose and even use two spots if we wanted too... they make sure we are okay and let us use those branches that is down for our campfire for free! Definitely recommended and be back again on this campsite. Thank you very much brian and Kaitlyn for the wonderful stay.
