At The Knotty Pines you shall enjoy 1 entire acre all to yourselves, while the beautiful, sandy-bottom Round Lake is a hop, skip, and a jump just across the street (3-5 minute walk). 

The site features a lovely natural forest canopy perfect for pitching tents, a campfire area, a toilet with a view, a picnic table, a field for stargazing, shaded+sunny areas, and plenty of hammock holders in the pine tree patches that border your site. If it happens to rain on your parade, we've got an upgraded pop-up trailer that sleeps 6 ready to rent for a few extra bucks.

We loved our stay at Hop, Skip, Lake on Easter Weekend! Patricia and Hendri were the kindest hosts and made sure we were very comfortable. They are the type of hosts who leave you alone to the tranquility of your campsite or hang out and socialize, whichever you prefer they will ensure you are happy with your stay. The campsite was an acre of your own land to pop your tent or camper wherever you please. There was lots of tree coverage, a great fire pit and multiple picnic benches. There is a few 4 wheeler trails right off the property for walking your dog or a little beach across the street on Round Lake. Foy Provincial park and Bonnechare park is in close driving distance for more hiking and swimming. We would highly recommend.

Now that we have been back home for a little over a week, I must say, we really miss it. We are finding ourselves wishing we were still there. It is gorgeous and peaceful. Paradise. We also miss Triah, Hendri and Alina!

Trish and her husband were very helpful and accommodating making sure we were all settled in after we arrived late. We had entered the wrong info into Google maps the town and the lake are the same. So we went all around the lake before Trish texted at dusk to see if we were lost. Hahaha we were, just sitting a block away having missed the turn while admiring the church right there.
I really appreciate how helpful they were, letting us use their stove when ours was not functioning and bringing extra kindling for the next night. Even picking up an extra beach towel incase the weather changed. I would recommend Hip Hop Camp for anyone wanting a nice, quiet, private experience. It was lovely.

Really nice dry wood to purchase that made a wonderful fire.

My family and I booked for 1 week. We are still currently here. This is my first time using Hipcamp and I must say, I am truly impressed. Hop, Skip, Lake is a paradise. The space is huge. We have a whole area set up for our tents. A different area for our "living space" and still so mich more space to play badminton, toss a ball or just run around. We have absolutely loved staying here. Trish and Hendri have really set the bar high. They are absolutely amazing hosts. So friendly and down to earth. Will 100% be staying here again!

This is a great campsite, quiet and private. Very large site, suitable for a large group of people or just one camper like myself. I stayed here for one night while touring on my motorcycle. Its nice having your outhouse. The hosts were very welcoming and caring. I will definitely stsy here again. Bonus, the lcbo is in walking distance to the site.

The hosts were the best people and absolutely wonderful, accommodating, friendly, and caring! Wonderful musicians who will serenade you (or play along with you), and provide amazing company if you welcome them! The space was clean, big, and surrounded in beautiful flora and fauna. Honestly would camp there over and over again. We had the best time and the town is so adorable.

I must say for being the first campers that Trish and Hendri hosted, they sure are naturals! It was such a pleasure meeting them and their darling daughter, Alina. They were all very accommodating and exhibited such a warm personality, making all of us feeling very welcomed. The camping grounds were well kept and trimmed. The outhouse was clean. We were able to fit my families 17 foot trailer and multiple other tents with no problem and still have room for the kids to kick a soccer ball, throw a frisbee and have a camp fire at the same time. There is a great provincial park near by which we enjoyed. And few fellow campers were happy to know that there was a liquor store basically right next door. This was truly a great experience, especially since it was a first for my family and I. These host have set high standards and we definitely will be back again.
