Backwater Paradise

10 sites · RVs, Tents30 acres · Blind River, ON
Backwater Paradise has possibilities for several camping styles. whether you bring your own, easy tenting or choose to go deep and experience raw wilderness/survival at any season. Our new listing is called Left Field. Its raw bush and field space in the center. The main entrance is very well marked and leads to the lake. This is where RVs are able to access and where the easy tent sites are. All nature watchers and sky gazers will enjoy any space we have here. Moose, bald eagles. wolves, otters, beavers, owls and several species of migratory birds are common visitors. The country may have quiet nights but out here the bush can get very loud. We get whippoorwills, frogs and crickets all night. In the lake there is plenty of bass and pike to keep a fisher and kid fishers busy. Common gear will work here and strongly recommend using wire swivel leaders. We promote 'lake 2 plate' principles and if you need anything let us know!! All campers have use of the water front no matter where your site is. On the shore of the lake front is a very large common area and firepit for everyone to access and enjoy the water and shoreline. We host fires Friday and Saturday nights weather permitting in this space.. There are several firepit rings to allow campers to have their own fire and sell hardwood. We also have some small row boats available to rent, the latest addition is the paddle boat rental. There is 30 acres of mixed forest, lake and marsh here and now we are able to be open year round. Backwater Paradise can be discovered at 220 Lake Hope Road, Blind River, Ontario
