AMAZING location
We absolutely loved our experience here. The tent was clean and secure. It rained pretty one night while we were there and we had no issues with rain in the tent. The location was beautiful and secluded and had so much to offer. We brought our dog and he enjoyed swimming and jumping off the doc. We went canoeing with the canoe provided and relaxed in the hammocks. Two sets of comfortable chairs were provided and basic cooking supplies which we used to cook over the fire pit. A full water jug was also provided and was convenient for hand and dish washing. Lastly, firewood was provided which was one of the most amazing parts. Not having to worry about buying and hiking bundles of wood was a HUGE plus! The outhouse was clean and in a convenient location. Not like your typical port a potty. The hosts were very friendly and easy to get a hold of if you should need anything. Would 100% recommend this location to anyone!

Perfect family canping spot
This was such an amazing private camping site!!! You can see they have put a lot of love and TLC into their land. The lake is breathtaking, fishing was great, wildlife abundant (we saw beavers, loons, swans, cranes just to name a few). They provide a canoe and a couple kayaks that allowed us to explore. We broke out the snorkeling gear and saw some really neat aquatic life. Our son caught his first bowfin off the doc making it an extra memorable stay. Communication and local tips was great from the hosts. Only thing I would caution to folks wanting to stay - bring ALL the mosquito repellent if you are going to be out around dusk! Cost of staying in a natural/unaltered aread (worth it).

Beautiful campsite next to the wate
This was the second year in a row I booked a trip here and it was perfect again. The host are very helpful and nice. The campsite was improved from last year with more sand next to water making the sunset views even better. Food and good company is all you need to bring here to make is a great time. 10/10
