Best campsite ever!!! We can’t say enough good things about our visit. Beautiful land. Perfect campsite. Delightful hosts. We stayed an extra night, but could have easily stayed even longer. Great location near the park. We kayaked every day. Highly recommend!

We had a great time! The site was clean, manicured and ready for us when we got there. Our dog loved chasing the tiny frogs, playing in the tall grass and running through the fields.

We were only 15 minutes from Ashton Beach so we did some kayaking while we were there. It was a really relaxing weekend!

Will be going back at the end of the summer.

Great host! Great location. There's path to walk on nearby and a small he's area that's open for the public. The directions were clear and the camp ground was very clean. Would recommend and is secluded enough although there are multiple sites!

This might be the nicest, greenest, softest tent/camp site I’ve ever used. So much better than the standard gravel at provincial parks. Dan and Kara have an incredible property located really close to Edmonton. Washroom was super clean, beautiful path through the field was perfect for morning tea/coffee walks. Dan met us at the entry and guided us in. He was super friendly and helpful, they supplied firewood and a beautiful fire pit. I could go on for days about how much our family appreciated and enjoyed our stay here.
