Big Rock Eco Retreat is a serene and picturesque campground located on the shores of Weslemkoon Lake, in Addington Highlands Township. Situated amidst the breathtaking natural beauty of the surrounding crown land, this eco-friendly retreat offers visitors an unforgettable outdoor experience. The area is home to a variety of native wildlife, including moose, deer, black bears, loons, and eagles, which can often be spotted in their natural habitats. The campsite offers individual fire pits and gas BBQs at each site, allowing visitors to enjoy the great outdoors while cooking up a delicious meal. Hiking enthusiasts can explore the extensive network of hiking trails that wind through the woods, while fishing enthusiasts can try their luck in the lake, which is teeming with fish in the summertime. In the winter, visitors can enjoy ice fishing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing, with well-maintained trails for all levels of experience. Each camping site can accommodate a hot tub for an additional fee, based on availability, making it a perfect way to unwind and relax. For those who want to explore the lake further, there is a marina with a general store open in the summer time. Visitors can purchase additional services such as smore kits, fishing rods, small boat rentals, private boat tours of the lake, and snowshoes in the winter. In addition, the retreat also offers a skating pond in the winter when the ice is thick enough. Overall, Big Rock Eco Retreat provides an idyllic setting for outdoor enthusiasts looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and immerse themselves in nature.

Rustic Cabin Getaway Lake Access
Girls Getaway!!
Jason and Susie were exceptional hosts. Jason took great care of us, making sure we got enough wood and water. When we first arrived, Jason took us on a tour of the property in his side-by-side which was really awesome. They take a lot of pride in their property and it shows. It's really easy to get to (make sure you go through Madoc) and Jason has everything set up so you don't need to bring too much (just food and booze). Would love to stay in the dome next time!

Rustic Cabin Getaway Lake Access
This was a perfect winter weekend away! The rustic cabin looked just like the pictures - the woodfire stove kept us toasty warm! There was lots to do on-site - we brought skis, snowshoes, and skates and used them all! Jason was a wonderful host - he even cleared the ice on the lake making a skating rink for the kids! He was always available to answer questions and help as needed. We look forward to seeing the place again in the summer season.

Gorgeous little park
My wife and I booked this site last minute as other plans fell through along our road trip. Jason contacted me before I arrived to ensure I had a smooth drive to the park with no surprises . He met us at the front entrance and took us over to see the site , after chatting for a little bit about the fact that we would be taking off early he offered us another site that was more accommodating to our needs . Both sites were absolutely gorgeous. Jason and Susie were super friendly and easy going , the lake was was beautiful, the fishing was good. I would highly recommend. Will return with the kiddos , definitely a family friendly park!

Jason is the single most accommodating and respectful host I've ever had. I asked him if the local marina sold bug spray, and he just gave me a can. He even offered to take me and my son out on the water to an island to clif jump. The campsite was beautiful and I've never seen more stars in my life. My only gripe was the lack of recycle and garbage bins, but other than that small issue, this is the best camping I've ever done.
