The vibe at Hidden Lakeside Campsite - Views!

Quiet, lovely and private camping site. If you're looking to get away from everything, this is your spot. The site itself was pristine (as was the bathroom!!) , and I must say it's truly a gem in the land-sharing/camping niche. I have to admit I'm a bit of a groupie for this spot, as I've had the pleasure of staying at this lakeside location in their tiny cabin and in the main house rentals, and it has been incredible each time around. The campsite is off a path around the lake, about a 5-10 minute walk from where you park near the main house. You are surrounded by glorious water views, but the site itself is secluded and peaceful. Plus there are plenty of trees around for prime hammock hangs :) And did I mention the bathroom? They have the most amazing outdoor shower with twinkle lights and a pergola covered in beautiful flowering vines. It's incredible. I've been to plenty of campsites and cabins and at this point, this one is by far my favorite.
All in all, you can tell this is a lovingly maintained family owned property. Enjoy your stay, bring a hammock and a kayak (or use theirs), but most importantly: plan to arrive in time to catch the amazing sunset over the lake!
Views on views on views! Wow what a great spot. From the moment I stepped foot on the property serenity took over. You are welcomed by lush green everywhere and a spectacular lake. A 5 minute trail takes you to the campsite, a secluded spot surrounded by lake views. Don't forget to stop by "Ted's Tower" on your way! Swim, sail, paddle board, canoe, float... whatever you do, make sure to get in that lake because the water is perfect. Reflect on the dock or lounge in one of the many chairs or hammocks by the shore to take in all the beauty and peace around you. And what is camping without a campfire? Firewood is provided, making life even easier. The vine covered bathroom is cleanly and complete with fairy lights when night falls.
This place is the perfect getaway if you are looking for an intimate and beautiful spot. The grounds are well maintained and the host, Robin, was very attentive.
I'm almost temped not to review this place so we can assure a future booking. The campsite was perfect! We spent all weekend watching fish, turtles and birds and alternating between the campsite and the access beach. It's a walk-in site with a 4-5 minute easy hike from the house (where you park) and shower/bathroom/water to get to the campsite. If you're car campers like we are and pack a lot of stuff, take note that you'll be doing a few trips back to the car. (If you're new to camping, it might not be the best option just because walk-ins add an extra layer of work.) It was worth it for the seclusion for us! If you're planning on arriving after dark definitely take the hike into account and bring headlamps/flashlights. Robin left out a very handy wagon that we used to cart our stuff.
Robin was great to work with and check-in was a breeze. She also offered some tips on great places to grab food if you want to take a break from campfire meals. :)
Bring bug spray - it's camping after all. We did see ticks, but no more than we usually do when we're out in the woods. The site has a picnic table, a lovely firepit / cooking grate, and gorgeous views. (And free firewood!) The outdoor shower was beautiful and the lake was perfect for swimming, paddle-boarding or just floating.
We're already discussing when we'll be back. Thanks for sharing this special spot with us Robin!
