We loved our large grassy site surrounded by trees, that made it super private. It was sunny and warm, when we were there, but if I wanted shade, to cool down, there was always a spot near the trees. Went for a swim in the new pond, it was muddy getting in but the water was a lovely temperature and beautiful turquoise colour. It was a joy to chat with the animals everyday and collect fresh eggs from the chicken coop. We had such a zen feeling there, we didn't want to leave!

Our spot was right next to the animals. I thought it would be loud at night but we didn't hear a peep! Our little ones loved seeing them each day. There was lots of room to run around, which is what drew us to this place, and we hardly saw another person while we were there. My only suggestion for improvement would be a light in the outhouse and a more stable structure for the shower (like a bathroom stall). My husband had to hold the curtains closed for me!
The pond was very pretty and I'm sure it'll be wonderful once it's landscaped.

Camping in a gorgeous location!
Natures Acres is a spectacularly beautiful site with full hookups! It was quiet and private and the best of both worlds.
Carl was helpful with our questions and has set up a glorious place for all of us hip campers. Don’t miss it if it is anywhere near your route! Thanks Carl!

Our favourite Hipcamp
Nature's Acres is our favourite place to camp! Every time we go, there are new things to check out, like the animals and the pond. There is so much space at each campsite, and it's so private... you would never know anyone else is around. Carl is very friendly and knowledgeable, and available for any questions or concerns

Another great stay at Nature’s Acres! We brought a big group this time and everyone wants to return! This spot is one of our favourites!
We’re looking forward to booking a Fall trip!

The group space was perfect! Lots of privacy and a beautiful setting. We used the pond even though it’s not landscaped yet (def needed that on this hot weekend) kids loved visiting the animals. Will come back again for sure and can’t wait to see how they finish the pond.

Everything was super nice at the site. Carl was very responsive and super helpful. Greeted us and showed us all the available sites.
Very quiet and relaxing location. The farm animals were a nice addition.
This is gonna be an even awesome space once the waterhole is completed.
Looking forward to returning to Carls campsite.

Natures Acres Tent or RV Offgrid
It was a very last minute camping trip and was a great choice. We didn't get to explore as much of the land or area, as it was very rainy for 1 out of 2 days we stayed. But, it's a huge property, very nice and private as well.
We do hope to return with more of a planned trip, so we can spend a few days and explore.
Regardless, it was a great stay.

Extremely quiet! A great escape from the hustle of everyday life. The property is beautiful. Carl was the perfect host.

Perfect long weekend getaway
My husband and I spent the Canada Day long weekend at Carl’s property and loved it! Our site was super private and huge with a lovely, large fire pit and picnic table. The site even had power, water and a sewer hook up!! Our site was also close to Carl’s menagerie of animals so we enjoyed being able to say good morning and good night to the chickens, goats and pigs each day. I think our dog Frankie developed a crush on Rocket the goat! The property is about a 15 minute drive into Durham which has most amenities needed. If you’re looking for a small beach or hiking trails, check out Durham Conservation Area which you’ll find on your way into Durham. Carl and his wife were excellent hosts and very welcoming. I am very much looking forward to returning to this Hipcamp location — I am looking forward to seeing the pond once it’s completed!

Wonderful camping experience! Our site was huge, well maintained with a water tap and hydro. The land is beautiful, nice hiking trails on the property. We enjoyed feeding our food scraps to the pigs and were thrilled with the fresh eggs courtesy of the chickens on the land. Carl was welcoming and friendly. Highly recommend!!

Lovely, peaceful spot. We enjoyed checking in on the pigs, chickens and goats. Very pretty pond they recently dug too!

So much room!
This place was wonderful! The pictures don't show just how large the sites are, or how much space you have to spread out and play games with the kids. The host is so welcoming and nice. They have pigs, chickens and the sweetest (and funniest to watch) goats. Would recommend! Host is also quick to reply to messages

This was our second trip. We absolutely loved it the first time.. and this time was even better.
There have animals added to the property(our kids were thrilled)!
Looking forward to our stay in August. Can’t wait to see the completed pond!

Family outing at its BEST!
We loved camping on Carl's land. We enjoyed the open spaces, and visiting with the chickens. Carl & his wife are awesome hosts and are quite hands on which ensured us of an incredible family weekend. Quiet sites, lots of places to explore or just admire. Definitely rates a return visit! Thanks.

Very well kept and friendly people.

This is our second time camping at Carl’s land. It is so incredibly peaceful and private.

We went here last year on the recommendation of my sister-in-law and absolutely loved it. This year we went with my brother's family and it did not disappoint. It's such a beautiful, serene place to stay. If you're looking for peace and quiet, with friendly hosts, this is the place to come. We will definitely be coming back.

Natures Acres Winter Camping
Our time at Carl's campsite is always such an amazing one! The first time we came was back in January and was our first official winter camping experience. Carl's campsite is super clean, well kept, and absolutely breathtaking. Our furbabies love it there. Carl is super close by for any questions or concerns and is super accomodating. We actually just went again this past long weekend and the weather was perfect. We tried a different site (more open) and loved this site even more. Carl has escavated a big chunk of their land for a lake/pond that will be an amazing attraction in the summer when finished! I can't wait when its warm and we're able to go swim! It already looks super nice and it's not fully completed yet. Could not recommend this camp site anymore and plan to go back frequently as it has become our designated go to camping ground! Will be recommending to everyone we know :)

Great stay. Beautiful open field with a few trees for us to string up a hammock. Power & water available. Big fire pit with lots of wood. One of the nicest outhouses I've used in my life.
Hosts were lovely and were kind to check in and say hello.
