We have been recycling this farm for years. It was owned previously by a couple who worked for a nursery and they planted many varieties of trees. Later it was part of a Manitoba pilot project for hi-bred poplar so there is a 14 acre poplar forest that was planted on a grid. It is a very unique place. We love it here and hope you do too!

Nice campground with a warm and clean washroom. Cindy is a great host, very welcoming and nice enough to offer firewoods. I camped next to the barn, where was near the highway, the noise could be loud when some trucks passed by. It’s a big place and suitable for group’s camping.

Camping with friends and pets!
Cindy's property is gorgeous and you can tell she's very proud of it. She gave us a tour of the land and told us tons of stories. The property had so many nice walking trails. The space she had set out for my friends and I to camp for the weekend was perfect. She also was great with introducing her larges dogs to my tiny (anxious) dogs so there were no issues. The indoor plumbing for the washrooms was such a nice surprise, and free range of the firewood was awesome. We had a lovely time and can't wait to book again!

This place was amazing! Cindy is lovely and considerate. She gave us a tour of the land, and was so generous! There is a lot of privacy, beautiful walks to be had, and art and gardens decorate the whole property. The facilities are clean and comfortable, and cheers to them becoming more accessible with a ramp in the near future. The dogs are so sweet, too! I wish we had time to stay longer. 12/10 stars, you can't go wrong here.

Lots of room to be be private, or enough room to group camp. Lovely clean bathroom. The hosts were gracious, friendly & unobtrusive. Well water available. The camp mascot “Koda” pup was available to lead tours of the property. Thank you for hosting we enjoyed our stay! Steve & Trudi

Lovely property, Cindy is super nice and very accommodating. We camped in the back of the property by the poplar trees - it was very nice! You do hear some traffic noise from the highway, but wasn't a big deal - especially overnight you don't hear much.
