Overall an excellent stay. Rod, his partner, and Gerry (their little dog) were most welcoming. Good directions (though Google Maps directions were good). Nice site with 30 amp service, water, and sewer (I think, we don't use as we have a cassette toiler) that was level and gravel. Very quite and rural.

Pros:

Good site with free wood (though rained too much for us to use).

Very quiet and rural.

Free WiFi (though sometimes a bit weak, though not Rod's fault).

No problems getting in or set up (though using a 19' Sprinter 4x4 Class B, but I would guess no problem for anything other than a big rig, though I've never used a big rig or trailer).

Very helpful host, gave us printed guide for things to do.

Very good pub within walking distance (for us, i.e., 5 km).

Very dog friendly.

Possible cons for some:

Very quiet and rural, to get into Ladysmith you will need a vehicle or at least an ebike.

Same for access to walking/running trails.

Would be nice to have access to a toilet.

I would highly recommend.

Rod was a fabulous host. His property is beautiful and quiet. An ideal place to try our first RV experience. We saw deer in the yard and could hear the frogs at night. Location was close to some great walks and the beach is not a far walk. There are a couple british style pubs within a few minutes drive.
We would absolutely stay here again.

Lots of space, very well maintained and private.Crow and Gate English style Pub 5 min drive away.Ruby after a long day of exploringBeach front 10 min walk from property

Another great stay at Decourcy Meadows! I came back for a second stay and I might return for a 3rd and 4th. Great trails, quiet, private and safe. The hosts are great, respectful and helpful. Full hookup and wifi. No complaints from this hipcamper.

BEAUTIFUL yard. Was able to spend 9 nights at Rod's hipcamp. Took daily nature walks in the backyard. The hosts made me feel so welcomed from day 1. High and dry levelled area. I couldn't ask for more. Worth more than 25$/night. The privacy and quiet neighborhood is worth much more. I would love to return, and I just might.

What a delightful gem of a property! Rod was a lovely welcoming host. We only stayed one night but thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful stay, the easy RV hookup, the beautiful fresh forest all around! Definitely recommend. Would have enjoyed exploring the trails if we had more time.

We really enjoyed meeting and talking with Rod and Joyce! Their space is one of quiet, clean air, trails to walk on: peaceful.
I have already told friends about DeCoursey Meadows and we will return!
