The Pinecone

1 site 路 Lodging40 acres 路 Simcoe, ON
Come to the Pinecone to completely relax and disconnect (seriously you will because there is no cell service!). During Summer and much of Spring and Fall, you should be able to drive up to the cabin. Unless your vehicle has especially low clearance. The road/path out to the bunkie started as a well-made tractor path that has held up well over the years but has some rocks and bumps. Once through the gate it鈥檚 only a 1-minute drive to where you will park. This road may be a bit muddy! If you are looking for a Winter Bunkie getaway, we would be happy to host you; please note the following: - If there has been a lot of snow the private road from the street to the Bunkie is not plowed. Depending on the type of vehicle you are driving, you may have to park at the gate entrance and walk in (4-5min walk) to get to the Bunkie. - There is a mini wood fireplace in the Bunkie for sleeping but depending on the temperature outside and/or the wind it still may be a little chilly. - There is lots of free wood available for an outside fire but we are sometimes low on small pieces to start fire or use for the mini fireplace. You can bring in your own extra kindling or bring own saw/axe to chop. - Bring your own extra blankets. DETAILS: Sleeping loft accessible by ladder comfortably sleeps 2. You'll have an outdoor fire pit, picnic table and 2 grills (we have lots of wood but you can bring your own charcoal for cooking). Enjoy watching the starts at night by the fire and visits from the abundant wildlife. There is 1 queen size bed in the loft for sleeping which is accessible by ladder. You will melt into the pillow-top mattress, luscious linens and don鈥檛 want to wake up heavenly pillows. There is porta potty outhouse that is cleaned, bright and easy to access. There are hanging solar lights that can be turned on as needed. There isn't running water in the bunkie but we are happy to provide you with as much well water that you would like, for cooking/cleaning. Do not drink from well unless you bring your own filtration system. No shower space but sponge/cloth bathing possible. There is a small table for 2 inside the bunkie or you can prep food and eat outside on the picnic table. A small fridge cooler is available to store any perishable food you may have. Bring your own ice. The bunkie has solar lighting for the evenings. If you don鈥檛 want to find your own firewood in the forest you can pick it up from locals on your way in for $5/bundle (see stands at the end of driveways). It is a big chunk of land but you can't really get 'lost' on it for any significant period of time. We are bounded by roads so eventually you will find your way. But, if you aren't experienced in the woods you may want to keep your wandering short, to start, as you get familiar with the land. Dog friendly!! We provide: 鈥 Bed linens and pillows 鈥 Basin for sponge/cloth baths 鈥 Toilet Paper 鈥 Small fridge to be used as cooler 鈥 Charcoal BBQ 鈥 BBQ Utensils 鈥 First Aid kit What to bring: 鈥 Drinking water 鈥 Coal (for grilling) 鈥 Food + anything required to prepare/eat your meals 鈥 Ice 鈥 Bug spray, sunscreen, etc 鈥 Garbage bags

Greener Pastures Eco Farm

4 sites 路 RVs, Tents75 acres 路 Woodstock, ON
Our farming adventure began in the Spring of 2015 on a 15 acre farm. In 2020 we moved to a 75-acre farm just outside of Woodstock, Ontario. Carl's childhood passion of animal husbandry was given a new purpose when our family made a conscious decision to change the way we related to our food. We began a family quest to eat locally and sustainably. As our little farm grew we developed relationships with our greater community and Greener Pastures was born! As our farming adventure continues, we are loving that each day brings new opportunities for learning. We invite you to join us as we continue to seek greener pastures! While here, be sure to visit the On-Farm Shoppe for fresh eggs, meats, and other great local products.

The Farm1

4 sites 路 RVs, Tents15 acres 路 Brant, ON
It was 1984 when John found his 鈥榙iamond in the rough鈥, 20 acres with an orchard on the outskirts of Brantford. O.K., so the house was nothing to write home about but perfect for building a construction yard鈥o neighbors except for the family across the road that used their property to build log homes. By 1987 the old house was gone, a new one was being built and a shop for working on heavy equipment had been located about 200 ft. from Dr. the back door. It wasn鈥檛 until 1996 that things changed very much. Yes, the property around the house had benefitted from a wide array of trees and shrubs that John saved from the construction/demolition jobs he had done and that still thrive today but no big projects (except for equipment purchases) were ongoing. A chance meeting with the neighbor across the road one day resulted in the following dinner conversation, 鈥楬ow was your day鈥 I chirped. 鈥楴ot bad, so-and-so didn鈥檛 come in; the truck broke down and I took it for repair; I bought the property across the road, and oh, yeah I鈥檒l need a ride after dinner to pick up the truck鈥 was John鈥檚 casual reply. 鈥榃hat was that鈥? I pressed. 鈥榊es, I need a ride after dinner to pick up the truck鈥 he repeated with a bit more volume. Of course like anyone, I had questions, 鈥楧o you want peas or corn with dinner鈥? 鈥榃hat time do you want to go to get the truck鈥? 鈥楾he property across the road鈥, 10 acres, still has the 4 storey barn with its twin tiled silos which was built in 1914 and the big white house with wrap around porch that once was home to a Doctor and his family. Built so the Doctor could see his patients in the front with the family living in the back was very common in the day. Things remained relatively peaceful until 2000 when after studying alpacas for more than 6 years I bought our first three. Back in 2000 alpacas and llamas were not frequently seen on farms and because they could been seen from the road they received A LOT of attention. People driving by would stop and ask about them, ask if they could take a picture or two and that was when I would hear over and over again 鈥榊ou have a beautiful place here, I wish I/we could stay鈥. Well, if you want to visit and stay in the city it鈥檚 doable, we call it a hotel. But visiting a farm and staying well, that isn鈥檛 so easy. Each year we would see more and more families coming to 鈥楾he Farm鈥 as they would call it. Some came to see the alpacas and horses, some came for a stroll and to check out the horse drawn milk and bread delivery wagons, some to have family birthday parties, others to have engagement/wedding/Christmas card pictures鈥nd so many asked if there was any way they could spend a day or two. In 2021 during a conversation with a friend I mentioned we were in the process of gutting the 1100 sq. ft. space downstairs and turning it into an Airbnb! Right away she said, 鈥業 don鈥檛 know why you don鈥檛 have a Hipcamp? You鈥檝e got that great area by the new barn that Hipcampers would love鈥! After a little investigation I found out what a Hipcamp was鈥nd as they say, the rest is future.

The best camping near Turkey Point Provincial Park guide

Overview

About

The only Ontario provincial park with a golf course, Turkey Point—so-named for the many wild turkeys that once roosted here—offers an easy nine holes within walking distance of all three of its campgrounds. But the main attraction for most visitors is the beach. Big and broad, the sand stretches more than two kilometres along Lake Erie鈥檚 Long Point Bay. It鈥檚 shallow and warm, and a favourite of families, who can wade out a long way on the sandy bottom. Within a few kilometres of the park you鈥檒l also find a busy marina, restaurants, shops, a winery, and even a zipline.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for RVs: Walking Stick Woods, which includes large, pull-through sites
  • Best for families: Whippoorwill Campground, which has a nice playground nearby
  • Best for early risers: Fin and Feather Campground, which is radio-free

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Because Turkey Point is near a village popular with tourists and boaters, summer is by far the busiest season to book a site鈥攅specially all of July and the first two weeks of August.
  2. First-come, first-served sites may be available, especially midweek or in the off-season, but no sites are reserved for same-day arrivals, so you鈥檒l be testing luck and fate if you leave it too long.
  3. Victoria Day, Canada Day, the long weekend in August, and Labour Day are all often booked out months in advance.

When to go

Both the park and campground are open from halfway through May until the middle of October, and summer is very busy, so if you鈥檙e looking for solitude, this isn鈥檛 the time to visit. The waters of Lake Erie can be chilly, especially early in the season, and the best beach weather begins around the second week of June and stretches into early September. For a relatively brief period鈥攔oughly mid-September until mid-October鈥攖he Carolinian forest here explodes with fall colour, with the added bonus that late summer and autumn tends to be (blessedly) less buggy.聽 聽聽

Know before you go

  • The park includes three hiking trails鈥攖he longest (Fin and Feather) traces an old hatchery pond, running a total four kilometres. Another one (Lookout Bluff) loops past nice views over Long Point Bay.
  • You can mountain bike on trails within the park, or visit a nearby eco-adventure company for additional places to pedal and zipline.
  • You鈥檒l find two laundry facilities onsite at the comfort stations for both Whippoorwill and Walking Stick Woods campgrounds.
  • If you or your child needs a personal flotation device (PFD), you can grab one, free-of-charge, at the entrance to the main parking lot (bring a small amount of cash for a security deposit).
