Beautiful, private spot to camp. Nice washrooms a short walk from campsite.
Cindy was a great host!

Great place to camp!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Cindy’s farm. It was very quiet and private when we were there. She was very pleasant and answered all questions we had. Overall 10/10!!!

The campsite worked well for our pop up camper. Cindy was very helpful and accommodating. Electricity was via an extension cord (either 14 or 16 gauge), so if you need a lot of power it may not work for you; we never ran our a/c but it powered our electric heater and fridge just fine.
The location is right off a busy highway, and I think you’d hear it no matter which site you’re staying at. Washroom was fine, there’s no shower; we used one of those bagged camp showers and filled it with hot water from the sink.
Otherwise it was very private, only saw Cindy during check in and heard her dogs the first morning (received an unnecessary apology for a little barking), they were quiet the rest of our stay.
It’s a nice location centrally located to explore both Winnipeg and all of the small towns up Lake Winnipeg and Hecla Island (be sure to get your provincial park pass ahead of time).

Gorgeous Instagrammable retreat
Cindy was a wonderful host who took my niece on a tour of her beautiful grounds. We visited her Etsy store, saw where she hosts weddings, took a gazillion photos of the scenic and unique spots all over the farmland, picked a bouquet of flowers on the outskirts of the property, and had such a lovely glamping experience with our trailer hooked up to her electricity and with a view through the foliage from the trailer to the swing set my niece was perpetually on at the front of the barn. The walks were all cleanly mowed and we walked our puppy around without fear of ticks…we had the entire site to ourselves which was amazing. She brought us lots of fresh fire wood so we happily hosted Two different couple friends who drove up from the city to hang with us, and my sister who camped overnight in a tent with her kids. It felt serene, safe, and comfortable with lush bathrooms and wifi close to the farm house. Her dogs are friendly but ours has no recall and we were out at the beach and Gimli so didn’t have the dogs play. Matlock beach is only 12 min away and quiet, good for families. We’d also recommend the restaurant in the golf course that’s 10 min away and was a nice treat. If you’re looking for a convenient, comfortable, beautiful spot in nature free of ticks and mud, with a gazillion Instagrammable spots, I can’t recommend Blacknot Farm more!

A nice big property with lots of grass land for setting up camp! Lots of fire pits to setup at your camp and the trees give you some good privacy. Was a great stay!

We had a great stay at Blacknot Farm. We were welcomed by Cindy, who showed us around and let us pick where we wanted to camp. The spot back in the poplars was the best. Very nice, and quite private as well.
