Beautifully kept, peaceful and private site. The host was very warm and friendly and her concern made me feel safe! Hope to return next season.

Joan was an amazing host! Very easy to communicate with and even let us have a late check out. The site was beautiful and lots of activities to do, hiking, canoeing, and swimming. Also we had access to a wagon to help bring our stuff into our site, which was very helpful. The outhouse was pretty clean as well. Only regret was that I wished I stayed for longer!

Joan is absolutely lovely, i think the best part of my trip was talking with her about the property and herself, truly an incredible and kind person. The site was equally amazing, the stars were clear as day and the milky way was the most visible at the riverside site, compare to other campsites in Ontario. We heard the howling of coyotes during the night and a porcupine visiting our site in the early morning. Truly an incredible place. We hope to visit again soon!

Pine the Sky was great! Joan was a gracious host and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. The Meadow site is nice and big and quiet. The whole area is beautiful and peaceful; if you are looking for a place to unwind this is it.
Thank you Joan for having us, we hope to see you again some day!

We enjoyed our peaceful weekend under the pine trees. Joan was a wonderful host and the other guests at the site were very considerate. Bathroom facility was large, clean, bright and overall pleasant. We were very happy with our experience!

It was amazing! Those lands are truly blessed and Joan is an angel! We stayed in the campsite under the pines, and we had a great time. They had firewood and even a small wagon to help us bring everything to the campsite. The outhouse is very clean, the whole area is peaceful and quiet. We loved it!

It was just about the perfect getaway. Not too far from home so you don’t feel like half the day is gone and just about enough that you’re removed from civilization, which is what we were looking for. Joan was a gracious host and the campsite was well tended with enough trails in and around to keep us occupied for the duration of our stay. 10/10 would visit again.
