For the last 23 years we have lived here on our 6 acres of property where our mature-aged Maple Sugar Bush, allows us to produce our very own maple syrup every spring. Side note: the sugar shack itself has been on the property for over 40 years. We also raise a small but varied collection of farm animals, grow vegetables, and operate a 3 generation (Mother, Daughter, Granddaughter) Artisan Craft Business, (Black Maple Farm.ca, Instagram @Blackmaplefarm that sells handmade goods and Maple Products at our local Farmer's Market. Our farm is located on the very edge of the Canadian Shield, so most of the landscape is a rocky, rugged, and naturally wooded. Throughout the property are numerous short, looping, walking trails that meander throughout the Sugar bush, pasture area, 3 season pond, and our farm animal "homes". These trails are perfect for short nature walks, where you'll experience natural wildflowers and plants, see and hear song birds, small animal wildlife and of course, farm life too. We are also located on the edge of the Eastern Ontario "Dark Sky" Area, which means we have a very nice view from the edge of our pasture of the North Sky stars on a clear night, with very minimal light pollution. Our varied collection of farm animals includes; lots of chickens, (including roosters who DO crow in the early morning hours), 3 miniature goats, 1 horses, a couple of barn cats, and a dog. During your stay with us you are welcome to come learn about and interact with our animals and daily farm life, if you so desire, and farm fresh eggs and maple syrup are also available to purchase too.

Overall the property was a great location. The only site improvement I would recommend is to have a garbage bin at the camp site itself.

Disconnect with Animals and Nature!
Great experience with camping being made easy and very enjoyable! Clean, beautiful, well organized, surrounded by nature and the animals, and a very friendly staff that welcomed us with a feeling of home (Lisa and Margaret were great to interact with!). The Maple bread is so good, fresh and soft, very much recommended! Also the goats were very fun to interact with, quite friendly after getting to know them a little haha! The star gazing area is beautiful with very comfortable seats (unfortunately had some clouds set it though!). Would like to go again definitely! We will be spending 2 nights instead of 1 that time 'round! :) Thanks for the accommodations, and the great experience! Recommended , 2 thumbs up 👍 👍

EZPZ Glamping w Goats (nearby!)
Absolutely loved our stay at Lisa's. Perfect for a quick couple's getaway midweek overnight, coming from Kingston nearby. Would definitely come back again, bring a couple friends, and make a whole group clamp out of it. The horses were sweet, the goats were awesome and fun to play with. Lisa and her family were welcoming but kept a professional distance and gave us tons of privacy. Looking forward to the next.

It's a great glamping site! I have not camped before so this was a good introduction to camping. We went with our 2.5 child and it was doable and fun for him. Almost everything is provided (bed, cooking items, even bug spray!) We loved the tent itself, it was so cozy. They have animals and fresh eggs! The hosts are lovely and such a kind family. Will be back when our son's a bit older :) thank you Lisa and thanks to your parents for making our stay comfortable.

Beautifully Maintained Farm Life
This was a lovely, shady space and the welcome was warm and helpful. We loved visiting the goats and horses! Also the outhouse arrangement was the best I've ever seen! I don't know how they keep it smelling so good and mosquito-free, but it's definitely worth the mention!

Perfect attention and facilities
We had a great night at Lisa’s family farm. You sleep under beautiful maple trees and the place is very well thought for all of your camping needs including a very comfortable warm water shower. There is a nice lake in the nearby village. Learning about the animals and stargazing at night was also very fun!

A nice little family getaway!
Our family loved the glamping experience. Everything was all set and ready to go. Lisa’s hospitality and service is 10/10 and would highly recommend families and/or couples to check it out because it’s a nice getaway. We love seeing the animals! The kids loved the goats and horse. We were recommended to check out Syndeham Point Beach and we LOVED it. Definitely a place to revisit again <3

Clean and neat
I stayed here for 2 nights (first night arrived late evening), to go to Frontenac Provincial Park, around 25 min drive. Lisa was very clear to explain about the function of toilet, outhouse, water... Everything was clean and in nice order. She gave me two big generous buckets of firewood. Animals were cute, i didn't really smell anything in particular from my campsite. Many fire flies at night. If you can bear with the mosquitoes, there is a star gazing place too. Sydenham Point Beach is 10 min drive and Cataraqui trail (bike/pedestrian) parking is 3km away. Cycling from the trail parking to Sydenham is around 6km. The farm is beside county road 38, traffic is loud until late at night and started early. Car cannot reach the campsite, so I did 2-3 small pulling wagon trips to bring my camping gears down there.

Exceptional site and awesome folks!
Camping at Black Maple Farm is like staying with family: they have thought of absolutely everything, down to the cutest details. The site was secluded and private, but close to the outhouse and (hot!) shower. There are signs up telling you what's where and festive lights all around the property to keep you on trail. Lisa was a sweetheart in accommodating our extra specific needs and she bakes an exceptional loaf of bread (you must get one, or two, or three). As if that wasn't enough, we got to chill with the adorable little goats and go night sky viewing with Tango the horse. Will do the glamping tent next time: no need to bring anything but clothes and food :) Thank you Black Maple Farm family!

Whisked away!
My partner and i felt welcome from the moment we arrived. The tent and amenities were fantastic! No need to bring any cooking supplies, just food. The cooler was fantastic - 3 bags of ice and by day 3 it was still frozen solid! The bed was comfortable and the tent was bone dry even with a full day of rain. The outhouse and shower were very clean. The animals were so cute and you can tell the family loves them and takes great care of them. Some cabins are being made so we will be back and next time will likely book a cabin! Thanks again Lisa and family, everything was perfect and you should be very proud of what youve created.

Lisa's thought of everything, including cozy little touches and extra attention to details like earplugs, portable charging station, family games, potable water, and all the camping equipment you'll need. The on-demand hot water outdoor shower was great and the compost toilet kept everything as clean as possible. We loved your farm fresh eggs thanks to your chickens, and meeting your horses and goats. The only thing we had trouble with was sleeping, due to the tent being a bit musty. Depends how sensitive a person is and it does come with being a canvas tent. Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay, including the roosters.

Live Comfortably In The Woods!
I really enjoyed staying on Black Maple Farm. This family run, forest covered property offers not only a tent big enough for the whole family but also trails to walk, animals to meet, a shower and tons of spaces to sit and eat. My sleep was totally comfortable and even the little bit of rain was nice to listen to and didn't get into the tent at all. There's lots of lighting inside the canvas tent as well as games and Lisa has stacked the place with all the household items you may need to be comfortable. Come with another family or friends and make some memories with the goats and horses here at Black Maple Farm!

A Rejuvinating Experience
Rejuvinating!!!! Glamped for the fourth time and this by far was the best host ever and glamping experience ever. From the arrival, to the departure, Elizabeth was accomadating every step of the weekend. The animals are all friendly and feeding them was fun. Amazing dark skies, comfortable bed, and fully equipped was something we didn't expect. Will definitely be returning more than once this year.

The stay at the Black Maple Farm was so wonderful! We had everything we needed to make meals and get nice and toasty in the tent. The set up was perfect and easy. Elizabeth was a gracious host who was great to talk with about farm life and the plans she had to share it with folks. It was fun to visit the animals, have fires, and enjoy the super comfy bed and sofas inside the tent. I will be back again with the rest of the family in tow. Highly recommend!
