Come camp with us, under the BEAUTIFUL grove of Pines, Maples & Oaks here at our Farm. This is the second of two Hipcamp sites available on our property and is a  traditional "bring your own tent & camp supplies" campsite. 

However, we can provide upon request, a traditional "6 person" (sleeps 4 adults comfortably on air mattresses) nylon camping tent, that will be set up and ready for your arrival, for a rental fee. Please check out this option on the "extras" page.

 Please note:  we are ONLY supplying the tent for this rental fee, campers will still need to BRING THEIR OWN sleeping mats, sleeping bags, pillows, etc. As well as their own cooking stove & utensils. The campfire on site also has a metal cooking grate over open fire, for those so inclined to cook this way.

This campsite is nestled under a forest grove of Pine and Maple trees, and sits near the edge of our horse  pasture in our small Maple Sugarbush which is part of our 6-acre family hobby farm. The site is nicely shaded and moderately secluded from farm life and our neighbors. 

Please note, we are NOT wilderness secluded, we are a RURAL/COUNTRYSIDE property with rural neighbors, whose homes are located in the distance, along the edge of our property. 

It is the PERFECT spot for a "family friendly get away" to "The Farm" or a leisurely country "couples getaway" to experience a "hobby farm/small homestead" life.

Our property is located on the very edge of the Canadian Shield, therefore most of the landscape is slightly rocky, rugged, and naturally wooded. 

But because we are an active sugarbush where we produces maple syrup every spring,  it is NOT densely forested with thick undergrowth, and thus has open visibility throughout the forest, including distant visibility of the other campsite(s) on our property - which are a Canvas Bell Glamping Tent, AND also *NEW*  this spring,  a tiny rustic cabin bunkie named the "Stargazer" (which overlooks our horse pasture. And you can also see our neighbor's homes in the distance along the edge of our property. 

However, the property has a conservation area/park-like " feel"  to it, with numerous short &  looping, walking trails that meander throughout the Sugarbush, pasture area,  around our "3 season pond" (ie; it dries up during June, July & August), and of course our farm animal "homes". 

These trails are perfect for short nature walks, where you'll experience natural wildflowers, see and hear songbirds, small animal wildlife, and of course, farm life too, also *NEW* this season we will be adding as the season progresses,  natural art displays, and benches throughout the property so you can meander, then sit, relax and take in  the natural world around you.

We are also located on the edge of the Eastern Ontario "Dark Sky" Area, which means we have a very nice view from the edge of our pasture of the North Sky stars on a clear night, with very minimal light pollution.

We are a small working "hobby farm", therefore we have a small, but varied collection of farm animals, and gardens. We have lots of chickens, (including roosters who crow in the early morning hours) 3 miniature goats, 2 horses, a couple of barn cats, and a dog. During your stay with us, if you so desire, you are welcome to come learn about and interact with our animals and daily farm life. (farm fresh eggs, maple syrup and homemade bread are also available to purchase). 

Campers should also be aware that we live in a rural area, and NOT a wilderness area. So it is NOT "wilderness quiet" here, but it IS countryside quiet. We are in close proximity (hearing distance) to a local 2 lane highway that does produce minimal background traffic noise during the day, and morning hours, but is almost non-existent of noise at night (after 7pm).  

We have also  created *NEW* this year some natural privacy "screens" (aka: waddle fences) throughout the property to create more a "private/secluded feeling while on your site. And finally, we have farm animals that make noise (roosters crowing anytime day OR night) and produce "smells", (manure)... BUT.... that is the "Charm of the Farm" :-)

There are also SO many local options available for recreational activities and visiting historic sites off the property. 

We have 2 local lakes, with swimming and boating options, (7 min drive).  

Biking and hiking areas, including the Cataraqui Trail, the K and P Trail, and the Rideau Trail. All of which are within a 10-minute drive of our home.

Frontenac Provincial Park is a 25-minute drive away, with more rugged interior day hiking trails. 

Local Canoe & kayak rentals are  25 mins away.

Local restaurants, unique local shops, a brewery, Wilton Cheese Factory, gas, grocery and drug stores are all a  5 minute drive away.

A little farther away is:

 ~The Nationally Historic City of Kingston, aka "The Limestone City" which located at the head of the St Lawrence River & Seaway on the east end of Lake Ontario, is home to many historic sites and museums such as; Fort Henry, RMC, Queen's University, CFB Kingston, Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, and the "INFAMOUS" Kingston Penitentiary and Kingston Haunted Walk,  is only a 20-minute drive away. 

~The FAMOUS Thousand Islands National Park - 51 mins away, and Gananoque, Ontario -Gateway to the 1000 Islands- is 35 minutes away.

~ Sandbanks Provincial Park with its famous fresh water beaches and sand dunes is 75mins away, and is located within Prince Edward County, which is also famously home to MANY unique & local wineries, breweries, orchards and artisan shops and boutiques.- 54 mins away.

You certainly will not be bored or lacking things to do and see both on and off the property.

Tent camping in Lisa's land was incredible, she is super attentive and if people forget something, she provide it. It is an excellent place to relax with family or alone.

This was a lovely, shady space and the welcome was warm and helpful. We loved visiting the goats and horses! Also the outhouse arrangement was the best I've ever seen! I don't know how they keep it smelling so good and mosquito-free, but it's definitely worth the mention!

We had a great night at Lisa’s family farm.
You sleep under beautiful maple trees and the place is very well thought for all of your camping needs including a very comfortable warm water shower.
There is a nice lake in the nearby village.
Learning about the animals and stargazing at night was also very fun!

I stayed here for 2 nights (first night arrived late evening), to go to Frontenac Provincial Park, around 25 min drive.
Lisa was very clear to explain about the function of toilet, outhouse, water... Everything was clean and in nice order. She gave me two big generous buckets of firewood.
Animals were cute, i didn't really smell anything in particular from my campsite. Many fire flies at night.
If you can bear with the mosquitoes, there is a star gazing place too.
Sydenham Point Beach is 10 min drive and Cataraqui trail (bike/pedestrian) parking is 3km away. Cycling from the trail parking to Sydenham is around 6km.
The farm is beside county road 38, traffic is loud until late at night and started early.
Car cannot reach the campsite, so I did 2-3 small pulling wagon trips to bring my camping gears down there.

Camping at Black Maple Farm is like staying with family: they have thought of absolutely everything, down to the cutest details. The site was secluded and private, but close to the outhouse and (hot!) shower. There are signs up telling you what's where and festive lights all around the property to keep you on trail. Lisa was a sweetheart in accommodating our extra specific needs and she bakes an exceptional loaf of bread (you must get one, or two, or three). As if that wasn't enough, we got to chill with the adorable little goats and go night sky viewing with Tango the horse. Will do the glamping tent next time: no need to bring anything but clothes and food :) Thank you Black Maple Farm family!
