Very good spot not too far (approx. 30-40 minutes) from the city.
Friendly host who suggested some places to visit in Thunder Bay and helped us as we ran into some issues with camping gear.
Prepare mosquitoes repellent :)

Both my dog & I enjoyed our stay on Andrew's property. His family was very welcoming & they made sure we had everything we needed. This is a great place for anyone who enjoys a true camping experience.

One of my favourite camping trips. I picked a spot nestled into the bush which you do have to hike in and out of which only adds to the wilderness feeling. Secluded and peaceful, this was a true camping experience. Direct access to the lake with awesome fishing only a short hike away from the camp site(depending on the spot you choose.)
The host were fantastic people, super kind and welcoming. Andrew took the time to show me around, made sure I knew where everything was and answered any questions I had. If I am ever in that area I will for sure be back!
