This is a beautiful wooded property. No street lights. No noise. It's like camping in the woods with just enough amenities to make you feel safe.

Peaceful creekside retreat
My partner and I stayed in the Hollow bell tent for two very cold nights in December (low around 25) and we had a great time. I was concerned about how cold it was getting, but the nice little wood stove heats the space up quickly and once we were in bed, we stayed cozy throughout the night with the bedding. The bed is SUPER comfortable, the room also had a table, a chair, and a rattan two seater that I found a wren tugging nesting material from this morning :) the space is so calming and beautiful, and it was nice to have a kettle on the stove for tea/oatmeal etc. We really enjoyed the beautiful trails along the creek, birding all around the property (LOTS of birds!) and overall how functional and well-thought out the place was. BONUS there are cute cats. Warning that our campsite is the furthest down a windy trail down the hill but closest to the lovely little creek. It's not too bad especially considering all the bedding they've provided is great so you really don't need to worry about bringing your own. The host is lovely and I am looking forward to checking out the creekside campsites and maybe the sunrise cabin at other times of the year. Thanks Dustin!

Super friendly staff and beautiful location. May want to bring earplugs because sometimes the other guests are loud at night, but that’s the only complaint. Would 100% reccomend!

Wonderful experience all around - Dusty and Charlotte were very welcoming and helpful, and the campsite was even nicer than expected. The property is tucked away and private, with a loop trail and a creek. Will definitely try to come back again.

My family and I had an amazing experience at Parksland. Our setup was beautiful and comfortable and clean. It had all of the needs for a great camping experience. The view was out of this world. The surrounding campers were the most respectful people I’ve ever camped with. The kids played at our site non stop and we did a bit of hiking as well. Would definitely recommend making this where you decide to stay.

Private, quite, but steep.
It’s a beautiful place to camp but be aware of their rules and regulations regarding quire hours. It winds down their after 10 pm so if you like loud music, this isn’t the place to camp. Go elsewhere.

Loved our 1 night stay at FF3. I brought my two boys (4 & 7) and we had a great time. This spot was the furthest from check-in and parking, but right by the creek. It’s a steep trek down, but my kids had no problem. Lugging my Yeti was another story. :) Solo stove / fire pit was easy to use and the tent was super clean. Incredible sheets, pillows & bed! The boys loved the roosters on property - and said they “talked” to them. Can’t wait to come back.

Freedom in nature
Parksland retreat is a divine treasure. The deck for this bell tent is amazing and the bed is crazy comfortable. Open minded place to be authentically you and be free. Enjoy!
