We struggled a bit finding the place but it was a fine spot to spend the night. Tree branches close in the driveway into the meadow so it was a snug fit for our trailer but not too tight. Lived that our digs could run free. Plenty of firewood in the adjacent woods.

Remote and beautiful space with multiple sites along a small creek. Cornelius was very friendly and welcoming. Worth mentioning it’s the house where the 15km marker would have been. Also our Subaru outback was just high enough to drive back to the campsites, wouldn’t have wanted to in a smaller car.

Super peaceful spot. Very nicely maintained and all of the camping spots were very nice. The creek running through the property was a nice feature. Definitely recommend.

A very peaceful setting. Our campsite was right next to the stream, so we enjoyed that sound.
The chickens and the camp dog were an added delightful bonus as well.
The hosts were very accommodating and we appreciated the toilet and shower facilities.
Highly recommend if you are looking an out of the way camping experience.

Our camping experience on Cornelius’ land was excellent. The site was huge and you’re secluded from others. It was my 4 month old lab’s first camping experience. I would highly recommend this place to others and will definitely be returning.

We definitely will camp here again

What a great place and kind host. We came pretty late to the side and Cornelius offered us a great place to stay right next to the creek. We loved every second there. Highly recommend this awesome site in the woods.

This was my dog, Piko, and my first Hip Camp experience and we are hooked! Cornelius is a fabulous host! We had a huge private site right on the creek where we splashed around for hours in the heat. Bathroom, dishwashing sink and a hot shower are all available and all in solar! It was without question, my dog’s favourite camping spot ever!! We will most certainly be back!

Wow… honestly don’t even know where to begin. This property is seriously a hidden gem!!! We originally booked for 1 night (as we had never used Hipcamp and were a bit hesitant) however within hours of arriving at the property we extended for an two nights. We were greeted by Thomas (the hosts son), who was super friendly and showed us around the property at the different areas we could camp. He also showed us where the bathroom, shower and laundry area was- which was super convenient!!

The property has various different spots to camp at- meadows, higher grounds over looking the fields and a few spots down by the creek. We opted for a spot by the creek and were absolutely blown away by the beauty and privacy of the camping spot. A creek runs through the property and kept our kids entertained for hours on end.

The property also has a great area for the kids to play- a swing set, trampoline, baby swing (and a new swing was being added before we left).

The hosts themselves- Con and Angela were an absolute delight. They went above and beyond to ensure that we had a lovely stay. Our camp spot was private enough that we only really saw the hosts when we ventured up to the playground or up to the top of the property to use the showers. They were always happy to have a good chat if you were up for it but also let you enjoy the property uninterrupted.

Cannot recommend this property enough!! It has been the highlight of our summer. Thanks guys!!!!
