The Pinecone

1 site · Lodging40 acres · 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’s 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’t 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’t 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: • Bed linens and pillows • Basin for sponge/cloth baths • Toilet Paper • Small fridge to be used as cooler • Charcoal BBQ • BBQ Utensils • First Aid kit What to bring: • Drinking water • Coal (for grilling) • Food + anything required to prepare/eat your meals • Ice • Bug spray, sunscreen, etc • Garbage bags

Greener Pastures Eco Farm

4 sites · RVs, Tents75 acres · 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 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’s Long Point Bay. It’s 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’ll 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—especially 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’ll 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’re looking for solitude, this isn’t 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—roughly mid-September until mid-October—the Carolinian forest here explodes with fall colour, with the added bonus that late summer and autumn tends to be (blessedly) less buggy.    

Know before you go

  • The park includes three hiking trails—the 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’ll 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).
