Welcome to PayDirt Farm!

The farm:

Your campsite is located on 100 acres of field and forest, on the beautiful Hogg River. We are a working organic vegetable farm with farm gate sales of produce and eggs. (Check out our Instagram @pay_dirt_farm for more photos of the property.)

A bike/ATV trail runs through the property and connects to both the Tay Shore and Ganaraska trails. The beautiful beaches of southern Georgian Bay are just a short drive or bike ride away

The farm boasts two swimming holes in the river which are cool and private. The river is stocked with trout by the MNR, so bring your lures!

The site: 

Our pine forest site is very private and shaded, with lots of room to choose your tent site. There is a chiminea and grill, and some kitchenware available for your use (pots, pans, tongs, can opener, etc.). You cannot drive right into the forest, but there is ample parking at its edge for those wishing to camp in a vehicle.

There is plenty of firewood in the bush for those interested in foraging, and you can also purchase a bag from our wood shed. We do request that you not bring in firewood from off-site due to the risk of importing pests. 

We look forward to hosting you on your getaway!

Leda was an amazing and responsive host. She wasn't on site the second day when we needed firewood from everything being wet from the rain and she told us exactly where to get some. We stayed at site 1 which is in a beautiful pine forest and a 1 minute walk from the river. If you have a tarp you 100% should book site 1 because setting one up at site 2 would be pretty difficult. The only con I can think of for this site is that you do hear quite a lot of car noises as it is very close to the road. Other than that this place is amazing an I highly recommend it.

The wooded area was large enough for multiple tents and spaces to cook/relax. We went a little late in the season and most of us were too chicken for a dip in the water but our doggo and the brave one amongst us loved it. Even without a dip in the water just having somewhere scenic to wander to was great. The biggest bonus though was as this is on the pay dirt farm we drove up to our order of fresh veggies waiting for us! The stars were so bright in the clearing where we parked our cars and I loved the slasher film style drive through the cornfield to get to our space. The hosts were lovely to deal with and so quick to reply when we needed anything. We were happy to get to meet some of their doggos and chickens too! All around a pleasure, we will visit again next season!

We had a wonderful time camping at Leda's farm for a couple nights. The pine forest was really peaceful and a great spot to camp. The swimming hole with the bridge was a particular surprise, it was great for a refreshing swim! Would definitely camp here again sometime, it's great.

We stayed at site 1 and it exceeded our expectations! The site is private, right by the river and there are lots of cute trails around to explore. Leda was super responsive. We will definitely be back :)

Leda was very responsive and accommodated our last minute booking. She provided us with everything we needed to know, gave us a map of the property and showed us to our campsite. We stayed at site #2, it was just a short walk from our car but was very private. It was a great experience and a great alternative to staying at a crowded campground.
