This beautiful spot was re-forested with pine a number of years ago, and was sectioned off from the surrounding farmland, which is now maintained by the mennonite community. It is 8 1/2 acres of wetland and forest, with a mown perimeter, and cool places to tuck into the forest for the night. The current owner was a special educator, and now is slowly turning the land into her homestead. There is a beautiful, spa quality outdoor shower next to a tidy and 'fancier than most' outhouse, a strawberry patch as well as wild alpine strawberries all over the property, a big dog and a small indoor cat keep her company. Here is what the land offers: -Bunkie in the Forest: A sweet 8x8 ft. space -Campsites: Meadow, Forest and River spots. Close to each other, but you'd never know it! All three are chill and serene places. The property backs onto a ten-foot swimming hole in an otherwise shallow part of the Saugeen River. -RV Spot: With electric hook up ideal for RVs 30 feet and under So much to see and do in the area!

A perfect Fall getaway 🍁
Joan is an exceptional host, and a gracious woman with a big heart ❤️ She and her dog Onyx made us (and our 2 dogs) feel at home for our 2 week stay in the Strawberry Fields Bunkie. It was a perfect peaceful spot on her beautiful land with access to the Saugeen River. Joan made us feel like family and was always helpful when we needed anything. Our Hipcamp experience here was a great fall getaway with lots of hiking and nature trails nearby. A five start experience for sure ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Joan’s property is very beautiful and well kept. The bunkie was clean and a nice escape from the cold weather at night. Joan is also very friendly and personable, I will definitely be staying here again!

We loved staying at Pine the Sky and will definitely be back. We had beautiful views of the night sky and even saw some shooting stars. Joan gave us plenty of recommendations for hikes and farm stores to check out in the area which were all amazing. As there are only a few sites and they're very well spread out, we didn't hear anyone else our whole stay, it felt like a total oasis.

Joan was very kind and her dog, Onyx, is the best. Her property is beautiful and peaceful. Just what we needed! The outdoor shower is very nice, too. My friend, my dog and I had a great time. Would definitely go again!

Amazing views!
My partner and I spent the weekend at Pine in the Sky and it was an absolute joy. Our host Joan is a rockstar. We arrived a little later than expected and Joan had our site set up with kindling and firewood. We also brought our dog Charlie who had a blast playing with her doggo. He was part of the family for the weekend. We camped in our tent but will certainly be back with the kids to spend a night in one of her adorable bunkies. Thank you for a mini getaway we won’t forget anytime soon Joan! Just a beautiful property.

Highly recommended!
Joan was an excellent host, very attentive to your needs. The loft bunkie was spacious and private. Beautiful area by the river to sit, swim, kayak and play games. There is abundance of walking trails within half hour 45 min drive. We definitely recommend this especially of you love nature. We will go back as there was so much to do around the area.

We will be coming back.
Three sites we seen were: by the water, pretty big more popular area few campers coming close to your site to go in the swimming hole. The forest, site is perfect for 2 or 3 people in 1 tent. You are in a small wooded area with a slight hill, pine trees around you make the spot smell amazing. Third and final where we were was like a meadow. Flat and soft grass with tress and brush around you with nothing over head gives you a perfect sight for the night sky and big bon fires. Host was super amazing and her dog was the icing on the cake for this place. Swimming hole is small and perfect for families, the canoe and kayak provided hours of fun. A public outhouse was always clean The outdoor hot shower was perfect when done swimming. Looking forward to come up during cooler weather and getting one of the cabins.

The outdoor shower is glorious. Having power and wifi made our rainy night stay very comfortable. Host was amazing very kind and there is a very cute dog. 8 acres of land to explore and a great creek for swimming or paddling. Sheets were very fragranced and mattress was not very supportive. Main house can be seen from the cabin. Not very private but very cozy. Spacious outdoor dining set up.

Comfortable and wild! Fun for dogs!
This was so easy to get to but felt so private once arrived. The property has great walking paths, a beautiful river and a couple options of accommodations from bunkies to tent areas. My dog was free to roam around and played well with the hosts dog, Onyx! What a cutie!

Great spot
We stayed in an adorable bunkie with our own fire pit! There were tables and chairs which made things very convenient. Plus the outdoor shower was a total perk! We really enjoyed using the kayaks on a stunning river nearby! Highly recommend visiting Hoggs Falls where you can swim under a waterfall! Also the local bakeries in Flesherton and Markdale are fab!

Camping at the River site
Camping at Pine the Sky was even better than my fiancé and I could have imagined. The land was beautiful, quiet & serene. Joan was absolutely wonderful & had the warmest energy. Her dog Onyx was an absolute 10/10 good boy and reminded us of our own good boy back at home. We were placed on the River site, it was the furthest campsite and was so private and beyond stunning. Not only is there the beautiful sunny riverfront but there is also a wonderful shaded pine area that's perfect to keep your coolers and tent cool even on a hot day. To make things even better there is an awesome outhouse & a gorgeous outdoor shower. If you weren't sure about booking here, this is your sign to do so! We look forward to our next visit and will be coming back for years to come!

What a neat little place this is. Each site is tucked away from each-other, the property is gorgeous and the owner is very nice and friendly. We stayed on the river site, it was fantastic, the star gazing by the river was amazing, hope you get clear nights. Would definitely recommend for couples or families that want a semi secluded feel away from those busy provincial parks. Easy to find and very easy on the wallet. You’ll be left smiling by this places charm and if not that, her goofy dog Onix will do it.

Strawberry Fields Bunkie
Family getaway
My husband and I were up hiking at Hogg's Falls with our one year old toddler and dog and stayed the night at Joan's bunkie as it as only 15 minutes away. Joan was very warm and welcoming, and went above and beyond in her service to make sure we were comfortable! Check in process went smoothly, and Joan was very quick to respond via the app. Super friendly, and we even got to have her dog play with ours! Our site had a personal firepit with chairs, and the bunkie had a table with chairs, futon on the main level and a mattress on the upper loft. The futon opens up into a bed, and still left enough room for a pack and play. Outhouse and shower were within walking distance on the property. Thanks a bunch for being a great host!!

Joan was a FANTASTIC host! Her place is a scenic little sanctuary ideal for a relaxing weekend with friends. Easy to find and nicely trimmed grass paths made for beauty Morning walks to the river with the pup! Luxury shower and outhouse and has plenty of wood for purchase. Checked in on us and we thoroughly enjoyed her conversations - and onyx is the cutest guy you will ever see! Will definitely be back to stay in her new bunkie!

Great weekend away with the family. We had the river site and it was beautiful! Sunsets were amazing and the stars were incredible. We really enjoyed canoeing down the river with the kids! It was a big bonus having the kayaks & canoes available :) I Would definitely recommend this camp site!

Enjoy the fun of camping sans tent
We had an amazing time glamping at Pine the Sky! It felt like the perks of camping but without needing a tent. We had a lot of fun making a fire, playing with the doggo and exploring.

The site is a jewel in the middle of Mennonite country. It’s riverfront, with watercraft, swimming, and fishing. The campsites are widely spread and private and the bunky is snug and very comfortable. Joan, herself, is attentive and personable - her knowledge of the area enhanced my visit greatly. I highly recommend this ground to anyone.

This is the one!
What a terrific spot! Beautiful spot convenient to great hiking, skiing, waterfalls, swimming and charming towns. But I also could have spent the entire time on the property. It is set in a lovely and peaceful pine forest just at the back of the owners home. The small cabin is situated for privacy but close enough for great wi-fi and enough hydro to charge phones and stay warm. The bed was comfortable and there was enough space for two adults and a medium sized dog. Very cozy, and perfect for a chilly April stay. I also appreciated the really nice outhouse, parking near the cabin, and water and wood on site. Really everything we could want for a quick weekend away. Joan was a lovely host who really cared about making our visit, and her property, special. If you’re visiting the area, this is your spot!

We had an amazing time! It was quiet & peaceful and a much needed break from the busy city. Joan’s property is beautiful and she is a wonderful host! The bunkie was incredibly cozy and so toasty in the evenings. This definitely beats tent camping especially in colder weather. We would love to visit again.

Winter Camping
This was my first time using hipcamp. I read the reviews of Joan's place and they were ALL favorable so I decided to book the bunkie for a few days. I had a wonderful experience and a perfect get away from the hussle and bussle of the city. The cabin was situated in the trees and out every window was a piece of heaven. Joan was a perfect host checking in but never intrusive. The first night we arrived Joan had the heater on to take the chill off the air, it is winter so it was appreciated. I had the best sleep! Her place is close to Flesherton and many falls so we did lots of exploring. I will definately be back and check out another season
