Perfect camping site! Communication leading up and during the trip was great. They helped bring our equipment into the site (about a 10min walk). The site itself was very nice, and has some really nice views. Will absolutely stay here again!

This was our second trip and it was even better than the first. More furniture has been added to the campsite and it's even more functional than last year. Stars were incredible, firepit has been built up further and Brian was super-helpful again. We'll be back next year!

Super private lot with a canoe for exploring the pond, and a great place to get away from the city to enjoy complete silence and untouched nature! Also a great fireplace setup for cooking food!

Absolutely beautiful secluded campsite with the convenience of helpful, responsive hosts! They were able provide some last minute camping essentials which were so greatly appreciated. The site was well-maintained with amenities as promised and impressively there were very few bugs. Although the water wasn’t great for swimming, we had a lovely swim nearby in Verona (a great recommendation from the hosts). Would definitely book again and recommend to others.

What an incredible site! So quiet and peaceful, on the water. Beautiful. Perfect place to escape and decompress. And there are hardly any mosquitoes! Friendly hosts atv you in and out of the site. Highly recommend. We plan on being regulars.

Great, spacious site to accomodate our larger group (we were 6). Amazing stars at night and beautiful sounds of nature. Brian was an amazing help with getting our gear to the site and accommodating a later than planned arrival. We had a blast--thanks for everything!

Brian was a great host..brought all our gear to the site, which made it more of a car camping trip, so not lacking in gear. The site was well shaded and there seemed to be a constant breeze that kept the horse flies away. The site was very large the outhouse was clean..and no smells. The overlooks a very large pond, and Brian mentioned aroundthe bend was a large beaver dam. We say Canada geese land a few times..it was nice. At night the stars came out in force..I found the best view was in the opening near the out house were we actually set up out 8 man tent. We had lots of fun..thanks Brian!

Had an absolute blast with a 360 degree view of the pond. There is a beautiful fire pit, and plenty of seating. The campsite is clean and well taken care of. Definitely would recommend this camping trip to anyone and we will be back! Only recommendation would be to add a picnic table for more counter surface :)

L'endroit est bien situé et surtout bien aménagé ! Isolé au cœur de la forêt, le bruit de la nature (grenouilles, héron, hibou, castors) est tellement calmant. Un train passe une fois de temps en temps. Le soir c'est une mélancolie de sons qui se mêlent aux étoiles pour capter votre attention. Malheureusement, pas de poissons vu l'eau stagnante du lac, donc pas de pêche, mais les balades en canoë permettent de visiter la flore avoisinante. Je vous recommande un bon chasse-moustique, car eux aussi sont contents de vous voir haha.
