Welcome to Cedar Creek Forest Camping! Voted second best camp site in Canada.

I have 97 acres of very private camping. The land is a bird watcher’s and nature lover’s paradise. There are miles of flat groomed trails and a 3-acre pond (plus several bush ponds). There is an abundant amount of wildlife to explore: birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects and mammals.

Welcome to Cedar Creek Forest Camping! Voted second best camp site in Canada.

I have 97 acres of very private camping. The land is a bird watcher’s and nature lover’s paradise. There are miles of flat groomed trails and a 3-acre pond (plus several bush ponds). There is an abundant amount of wildlife to explore: birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects and mammals.

The sites and trails are maintained during winter months and the forest is quiet and beautiful covered in snow. Guests can snowshoe or x-country ski on the vast private trails. Downhill skiing is not too far. Moonstone/Mt St Louis and Horseshoe Valley are about 15/20 minutes and Blue mountain is about 50 minutes. 

The campsites are family-friendly (and pet-friendly), and you can easily drive up to and park at your campsite.

Small campfires are permitted, sustainably harvested firewood is available to purchase! Please add this as an extra at the time of booking or can be purchased at the site.

Shopping and all amenities are under 15 minutes away! The property is close to Georgian Bay for swimming, fishing, boating/sailing, paddling and beaches. It is also close to the cities of Orillia and Midland/Penetanguishene for dining, shopping, arts, and many historical sites. Historical sites include Fort Ste Marie Among the Hurons, War of 1812 British Naval Establishment, Kings Wharf Theatre, Martrys Shrine, Huronia Museum and more. 

ABOUT THE CAMPSITES:

Site 1 is a large open grassy area that can accommodate trailers or RVs, Sites 2, 3, and 4 are large sites that can accommodate six guests in tents or small trailers. Sites 5 and 6 are smaller and are for tents and four guests only.  This property is protected as a managed forest and we only want campers who share our love and respect for all the flora and fauna.

Dry firewood is available for $7/bag. Please DO NOT import/bring firewood, the risk of transferring an invasive insect is not worth it.  We are inclusive, tolerant and respectful of all wildlife and campers and expect the same behaviour from our guests.

I look forward to hosting you and may peace be with you.

We loved our stay at Cedar creek! We had a beautiful and spacious camping site for our traveling trailer. Dave was a gracious and welcoming host. We had a nice walk on the trails. It was beautiful and peaceful. We will definitely go back.

My friend and I had a sunny and pleasant weekend on Dave's property. Dave was outspoken, truly passionate about his land and responsive, although understandably busy with other guests at times. The spot itself was for the most part private, quiet and comfortable. I loved that my doggo could be trusted to be off leash and far enough from other sites that this didn't pose an issue. The outhouses were rustic, and suggest to remember to bring your own toilet paper. Some masculine decor (chairs, referbushed automobile parts are strewn about the premises) to be used as relaxation areas. You do have to leave the premise if you want to do a substantial hike. Having the great lakes and many trails in close driving proximity was such a lovely bonus. Many natural sites to be seen within driving range. Thanks Dave for a great stay!

Dave was super friendly and very passionate about the preservation of his forest. It was a peaceful getaway from the big city with many surrounding natural sites and lakes. A nice private getaway not that far from amenities. Thanks Dave for everything .

We camped at Cedar Creek Forest for two nights and it was such an awesome experience! Dave was an awesome host, super knowledgeable and passionate about his land, and all of the ecosystems that live in it. We explored the trails and the lake, and enjoyed our evenings away from the noise of the city. He provided us with firewood each night and a box of kindling! The outhouse was super clean and well maintained. We can't wait to come back to Cedar Creek, and hopefully next time get to tour Dave's farm! Thanks so much for hosting us!

A whole different experience. I absolutely loved how separated the campsites were. Usually you can hear your neighbours conversations at other campgrounds but this one was so quiet and secluded! Will definitely be going again sometime!
