This was one of the original homesteads in the Margarees. There was an old sawmill on site which was used to build the house and barn. It was sold to a man who started renovations for a summer house but ended up listing it for sale. I purchased it and completely renovated the 100-year-old house. Shortly after, my brother and I started an outfitting company with no plan of building a campground, but in 2017 we saw a great opportunity for building something unique. We wanted to keep a backwoods camping feel, but yet create it around a hostel-inspired environment. We launched June 1, 2018 and are in full swing now. We look forward to meeting you and will help you out in any way to make your trip here something to remember. Adventure awaits at this eco-camping hostel offering a natural setting, overlooking a picturesque valley. This location offers close to off-grid camping with a twist of comfort; furnished Glamping tents, sleeping up to 4 people per tent on a queen bed with twin camping beds for extra guests. Cooking gear, bedding, and towels are provided. Each tent, located at this eco-hostel, has its own campfire pit, with a solar outdoor shower on site and beautiful views of the river valley.

We camped here while bike touring the Cabot Trail. It was a perfect stop coming from Baddeck. They have great free coffee in the morning, and there was a food truck with some great food on the property. Everything about it was great, would stay here again!

Great Experience!!
This place was great. Had everything you need in terms of amenities. Shower, sink, bathrooms and even fresh water jugs. The lot was huge and there was a ton of space between sites. They also offer free coffee in the mornings!!! The staff were great and friendly. Overall a great experience for someone looking to camp in Cape Breton Island. 10/10 would recommend.

The grounds and set up were very well done and excellently looked after. Beautiful views open spaces. Nice touches to have things like coffee and a food truck available.

Very cool location! Views are beautiful, and there are places to swim in the river very close by. Washrooms and showers were also lovely.
