Collin’s Wood is a very special place indeed. The land was bought by my grandfather years ago when he moved to Canada from England and wanted to chase his log cabin dream. Our main cabin my family built from trees on the land, entirely by hand. We have photos of the trees being cut and the bark being peeled off. Since then, we’ve made many changes out there, we now have a guest cabin that used to be a Teacheridge (back when teachers would live in a one room building beside the school), eventually it was turned into a cafe and now it sits on our land as a guest cabin. This place is so magical. With a quarter section of land I grew up running through the forest with my friends and learning about what the land has to offer. My parents have spent every spare weekend out there making this paradise into what it is today. All the buildings were created by my family through labour and love. We’ve hosted weddings, and family reunions. We hope you appreciate how special this place is. Come see for yourself!

We loved the site, Geri and Pat were very accomodating and helpful. The place was very peaceful and even trails on propert to go wander off in the woods. There are additional services on property to enjoy like sauna, massage etc we will definitely return and recommend this beautiful place to future campers.

Forest Treehouse at Collinswood
It's a nice quiet place to unwind and Geri and Pat are the quintessential hosts going above and beyond. The place was perfect when you just want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

Forest Treehouse at Collinswood
We had a wonderful stay at the Treehouse! It was the perfect way to introduce my son to “camping”. Views were amazing and having coffee and cookies served in the morning made my day easier as I was packing up to leave. We will be back :)

Forest Treehouse at Collinswood
Absolutely magical
Absolutely loved this magical place. Sleeping in the treehouse took me back to my childhood days spent in forts. Waking up surround by horses, the hours spent walking the forest trails, and the cliff side bathtub all attributed to this being one of the best camping experiences we’ve ever had. Host was lovely, very friendly, and accommodating. Can’t wait to visit again!
