This beautiful, quiet campsite includes the use of a rustic, one room cabin with a screened-in porch facing one of our wildlife ponds. While camping in our private Wildlife Habitat Sanctuary / Organic Farm you may see wild turkey, deer, fox, a variety of water fowl, migratory birds, beaver, Great Blue heron and more. At night you may even hear coyotes call. Your tent may be put up in the camping area or you may put your cot in the cabin for sleeping. You will have access to our 100 acres of marked, wooded hilly, hiking trails. You will have complete privacy, because you will be the only people camping on our property.  

We live a 10 minute walk away from your campsite, in a house near the barn, where you will park your car. You will carry your camping gear from your car to your exclusive campsite. You will be the only people using the campsite and the outdoor composting outhouse.   

We are located just 15 minutes from Stratford and St. Marys, Ontario. Wildwood Conservation Area and the Harrington Conservation Area are just down the road from us. We are 5 minute drive from Happy Hills Resort. Lake Huron is about a 55 minute drive away. Our profits go toward maintaining this wildlife habitat sanctuary.  If you have any questions please feel free to message us.
