We are committed to a private yet supported, roughing-it outdoors camping opportunity. Pitch your tent beside a river with the woods at your back. Cook all your own food over a campfire, or order in pizza delivered to the house and we can run it back with the four-wheeler. A pop-up screen and luggable loo brings you privacy for bathroom needs. Wake to the gobble of wild turkeys and possibly the yipping of coon kits or wild coyotes. Bring your pet. You can drive a 4x4 to the campsite, hike the 1 km of moderate terrain, or we can run you and supplies back with a four-wheeler and cart. Buy campfire bundles or find and chop your own from deadfall in the woods. You do not see any buildings from your site, and we will be sure you and your friends have the campsite to yourself.

Valerie and her son Wynton took every opportunity to make me comfortable beginning long before my stay. They set up a fire for me, drove out my camping gear on a 4 wheeler, and allowed me all the privacy while there. The property is luxuriously large with seating, a river, trees all over and about 1 km from the main home. Feels like you're back country camping!

Valerie was so thoughtful and had a fire set up for my arrival.Another view down the river, you can see just how luxurious this piece of land is - you have it all here!Eggs right from the hens!Nothing like warming up by the fire in the autumn!

Valerie was incredibly accommodating of our group. Her property is beautiful, and the title 'Very Private Riverside' does not disappoint. Nestled in a small meadow beside a creek, far from any roads or earshot of anyone else is where the campsite is. It was very well kept, Valerie provided water and firewood and assisted getting our gear to our site with an ATV.

This was my first Hipcamp trip and my experience on Valerie's property proved as a more beautiful and unique stay than what you may experience car camping in a provincial park.

Thanks Valerie! I'm sure we'll visit again.

I had a really amazing camping experience here. The location was really amazing. Their farm is beautiful - full of rolling hills and a great view of the sunset. The camping site is tucked away in the back along a beautiful creek far away from any noise where there are trails to explore nearby farms.
Valerie's hospitality was amazing. The weather forecast for the night I was camping was pretty grim at first, but Valerie was very accomodating in providing alternatives to keep me out of the rain. Luckily the weather held out and I spent the night by the creek enjoying a fire.
I highly recommend this spot!
