Camping with the fam
Even though we camped early in the season and it was cold that night, the area is absolutely beautiful. The hike we took was great with wonderful scenery! Had a great fire and my handsome bf cooked for us...it was awesome!
Had the entire place to ourselves on a weekday, it was beautiful and there were TONS of places to hike around and explore. A lovely fire pit and so much cool scenery. Very, very cool place. Also the firewood is super cheap, 15 logs for 5 bucks.
Love camp o!
Amazing time at Camp O! I stayed in this unit as a camper (back in 2001) and it was wonderful to be come back and share with my kids (5 & 7). They loved climbing up the large rocks by the fire pit and sleeping in the bunk beds in the cabins. We hiked out to Cedar Falls and back and the trails were very well marked! We walked around camp and I showed them all the different activity areas and they especially liked jumping on the Amantacha bridge. Definitely brought back some great memories for me.
Lalande is close and convenient to the shower house complete with flushing toilets which is always nice with younger kids.
They've already asked to go back so we'll be driving down the Camp O road again SOON! Heepwah!
Our directions and greeting were great. We did not realize quite how open the treehouse would be and it was a very buggy night; we do not blame Ondessonk for that though. The grounds were beautiful and we would have stayed a second night if time permitted.
