Recent Hipcampers say this Hipcamp is great for families and kids.
Hi! We’re your hosts, Seth, Jodie, and Megan Williams. Recently we decided to share our property that we love and have enjoyed so much for two reasons: to give others the opportunity to enjoy it and to put money away for university. Our parents, Mark and Sarah, got behind the vision and are excited to be part of this project with us. We would describe our property as: home…and a really fun place to grow up! Our parents thought that wasn’t descriptive enough for Hipcamp so they’ve helped us describe it more. We live in a quiet neighbourhood in a forest that has been a source of peace, relaxation, and fun for us in our growing up years. We’ve noticed that people who visit here say they feel the same way. With plenty of space for kids to explore and adults to relax, our 3 acre forest is perfect for down time with a book in the hammock or a nature walk before dinner. Amenities and service: A single, tidy campsite with picnic table surrounded by mature and gently manicured forest, as well as a hammock, and a new construction outhouse. (Go dad!) We love hospitality, so though we won’t always be around when you’re here, if we are and you need something you can simply ask and we’ll do our best to provide what you need. To help you feel welcome we provide a fresh, cool jug of drinking water and large container of fresh potable water as well as access to an outside tap to fill water containers if needed (upon request) , power to charge devices (upon request), and a campfire ring with firewood (sorry about the frequent fire bans. Huge bummer. We will post current fire ban status while you’re here.) Surroundings and local attractions: Our property is situated in a low traffic rural residential area within ¬ 3 km to Sandy Pool Regional Park (5 min) A family favourite! ¬ 10 km to the Cowichan Valley Museum (Duncan Totem Tour) (13 min) ¬ 14 km to the Pacific Northwest Raptor Center (15 min) ¬ 19 km to the Hand of Man Museum (20 min) ¬ 20 km to Lake Cowichan (16 min) for swimming, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, etc Note: Lake Cowichan is also home to ‘The Tube Shack’ where you can rent tubes to float down the Cowichan River and catch the Tube Shack Bus back to your car. We do it every summer! Fun fact! It’s a 10-minute bike ride from our house to the Cowichan Valley Bike Trail. *(All destinations calculated from our dining table by Google maps) There are multiple well known hikes within 20 minutes (we suggest googling Stoney Hill Trail, Mt Tzouhalem, and Mt. Prevost.)Forest Hideaway “We live in a quiet neighborhood in a forest that has been a source of peace, relaxation, and fun for us in our growing up years.

Incredible find! Mark and his family made us feel so welcome, and their cat Dobby was such a pleasant surprise. Highly recommend this hidden gem.

Quiet site near Duncan
What a fantastic place to stay, we liked it so much that we came back and stayed another night. Quiet, clean, and the host was very friendly, as was their cat! They put out water for you and there’s plenty to keep you occupied, treehouse, slackline, and only 10 minutes from Duncan. Would definitely recommend.

Forest Hideaway was one of the best camping experiences we’ve had! It’s such a beautiful, quiet, peaceful spot and we enjoyed our stay so much! Mark and his family were wonderful hosts! So helpful and friendly. The washroom was clean and the spot itself so pretty. It has nice trees for just enough shade and sun to come thru. We will definitely come again and recommend to all!

Wonderful spot to stay! Our visit was short but sweet, hosts were great at showing us around and the property was beautiful. Nice and quiet, private campsite makes for a relaxing place to rest your head. Couldn’t have asked for more.
