The enchanted land at bushwood camp is more than total solitude. It’s a complete reset for your mind body and soul, the perfect escape from the outside world. We were lucky to have Jen and her dad as our hosts. Upon arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome and support to carry our gear through the woods. We rented a tent which was set up before our arrival. On clear nights around the fire the trees create a perfect circle around the Big Dipper! What a sight to see.
There was a 15L of water provided for us- which was more than enough.

We had a fair bit of rain on our trip, the tree coverage helped but we recommend bringing lots of rope and another little tarp to hang from the trees. Jen also had a grill provided to cook on the fire. The pond is not for swimming, very shallow and weedy ( this did not stop my partner from flipping the canoe to go for a dip) That being said it’s a must to explore, especially if you find the beaver dam.

The pond is filled with wild life such as ducks, hawks, herons, beavers, deer and porcupines.

We highly recommend you take advantage of the add ons! Such as tent setup, wood, carting supplies in and canoe rental.

We loved this land so much we can’t wait to explore the other locations they are creating.

Thank you for sharing with us - Kate and Louis

Very secluded quiet setting for those wanting to be completely immersed in nature with no distractions. A short 20 minute walk from parking to setup. Definitley a great place to go to relax and get away from it all without having to make a long hike. Looking forward to doing it again.

Beautiful location & super friendly hosts! Would recommend to anyone looking relax in nature, without any city noise all you can hear here is birds, frogs in the nearby lake or the occasional critter scurrying by in the forest. In the early morning hours, distant roosters can be heard waking up. The canoe was an amazing bonus! Beautiful place to camp, just remember bug spray with deet!

The place was as it looked in the pictures. We had a 7 people in our party and were very comfortable.
Jen and her father were very friendly and helpful.
They helped carry our gear to the camp site and back. It is about an 800 m walk over uneven terrain. They also set up the screen house that we rented. They provided a 15L water container for us at no additional cost.
We stayed for 3 nights and had a great time.
