Loved the site, it was beautiful and there was lots of wildlife! We were investigated by some deer and a racoon that bunks close by. (You can see him sleeping on top of a nearby tree). The site was easy to find and a short drive to both Perth and Westport if you want to spend some time in a cute town. Would certainly stay again!

Hosts were wonderful to deal with and the property was great as well! Easily accessible by car and not too far from nearby towns but still felt very private.

The only thing I would warn someone about is how steep a slope it is to get to the water. My boyfriend and I are both in our 20's and quite physically active but even still, we found it very challenging to get to and from the water - especially if you have something that you're carrying in your hands, it becomes very hard to scramble up the slope. If you're in good shape and up for a bit of a challenge, then it shouldn't be a huge issue.

Thanks Bailey, we have added some guide ropes and stone steps and continue reducing the steepness.

It was perfect. I have camped all over the world and this was one of the best. Facing the lake, safe, and beautiful.

Perfect mix of sun and shade - site was perfect for our weekend get-away. Option to buy firewood on site was great as we burned through what we brought on the first night. We also enjoyed being able to use the canoe for a beautiful trip up Bob's Lake!

Site was level with good privacy and easy access. Host was really nice providing good instructions. Was using a rooftop tent with lots of space around to setup. Toilet (thunderbox setup) was clean with a simple structure to shelter from rain. Lots of pleasant sounds from nature like birds, frogs, insects, etc. Although a canoe was available on a dock, descent down to the dock was steep and perhaps due to the season, water level was too low to launch the canoe without getting stuck (difficult to get water from the lake for any filtering/washing as well due to water level).

I had a really peaceful and relaxing weekend here. Got to see lots of wildlife and enjoyed the seclusion. At night all you can hear are frogs and the occasional sound of coyotes in the distance. The host was extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this site for anyone looking for some tranquility.

Even though the site is somewhat near the road, you cannot be seen!! I mean, apart from the birds, squirrels and raccoons (which were kind enough to pay us a visit!). Oh! And the deer that was so at ease, she defecated in front of us. I found the (quiet) road nearby to be a bonus; if anything happens, at least we'd be able to get help pretty quickly. The site is overlooking what seemed like a bay, which was great but not fit for swimming as it's very weedy. The hosts were friendly and great to communicate with! We had an awesome weekend.

And that camp fire ♥️Tent setup!All the wood you need for camp fire ($).
