Site was really nice and not too far from the water which was still warm to walk in. Sadly the water only gets to able knee deep. Only a little bit from the city for any hikes or walks

Great location for an overnight stay. Quiet secluded site by the river close to all amenities. Caught and released 4 small mouth bass on the Maitland.

This site is a dream! We have a 17 ft trailer and had no problem pulling in. The private site sits on the river. Although you can’t see the river from the site, there is a short little trail down to it with chairs to sit and enjoy. There are numerous fun birds and squirrels to watch and the firepit was much appreciated. Would definitely stay again!

Loved our stay on Shelby's land! Great location, close to Goderich and the beach. Walmart just down the road if you forget anything too! Firewood nearby for sale at a great price as well!
Just be known it's very close to the river and as such prepare for gnats in the mornings and evenings briefly.

What a great place to sit back and unwind. The river is lovely and is perfect for wading and creature finding. Depending on the time of year make sure you bring a screened room, bugs can be bothersome but if your quiet the room is perfect for bird watching which there are plenty! The lot itself is huge has great fire pit with chairs awaiting that first campfire. I’ll definitely be visiting The Riverbend again.

The area was really nice! We had our own little space which included a fire pit, picnic table and she also had chairs there for us already which we didn’t expect. There was a little trail by our site which led to the river filled with minnows and crayfish. It was close to Grandbend and the Falls Conservation area. We didn’t really like the port a jon only because we found it was very snug, not much room to clean yourself properly but it was well kept and useful. Overall we enjoyed our stay!

Fish pond at the falls conservation area.Falls Conservation Area. About a 6 mins drive from our campsite. Our own little area.There was a fire pit with a grill there for us to use so didn’t have to bring our own grill. There was somewhere to buy wood less than 5 mins away. Bring cash!
