Located in the Kawartha Lakes, cottage country! Waterfront acreage near Gannons Narrows bridge. Busy, sometimes noisy but fun waterfront viewing. RV parking is gravelled, level, tree-shaded spot. Your surrounding areas are waterfront, docks, grassy lawns, firepit, horseshoe pit, and leafy acreage. There is a Marina less than 2 kms away. Across the road is a small Conservation area with walking trails and a popular fishing spot. There is a very friendly but large red dog on the property.
Private 200 ft long gravel driveway flanked by trees but good turn around area for truck campers and Class B vans once arriving at the main house. Unfortunately, it is too difficult for tow behind travel trailers or 5th wheel trailers greater than 25 ft combined to turn around in the space. Please refer to the posted restriction of 25 ft or less.
We can welcome guests most days between the Canadian May long weekend and until the end of September. At other times, we are away on our own Snowbird trek!
Cottage Country...numerous country and cottagesque shops, historic hamlet of Ennismore, Kawartha dairy ice cream, Buckhorn Lake LiftLock, Kawartha winery, Gannons Narrows Marina, excellent dining at Chemong Lodge...all within 15 mins of driving...a 40 min drive to historic Bobcaygeon with another beautiful waterfront and Lock. Also excellent small town shopping (Bigleys famous clothing and shoes) and numerous dining options.
I recommend Blackpool, I had a great time chatting with them and brought them a delicious apple pie from THE BIG APPLE
They helpes me out with the drone who acted irradically and land in water! They were extremly nice and i felt as i was meeting a past friend!
Thx for everything!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with this very friendly couple. Their property is exceptional with a beautiful waterfront view.
The parking spot was flat , spacious and had a great view too
I’d highly recommend coming to this host.
Our hosts gitty210 were nothing short of fabulous....and the location equally so!!
They not only made us feel very welcome while we were there, but Mrs-Gitty210 provided us with a ton of very useful travel tourist info, for both the trip there as well as after we left (both of which we found very helpful).
They have a lovely location on the waterway and the grounds of their property are park-like. We sat on their deck with them until after dark and passed an excellent evening of nice conversation. They are very experienced RVs, who were enthusiastic in sharing all kinds of useful information to us newcomer RVers. We would highly recommend this location, not only (for us) as a way to become familiar with the Kawartha lakes area, but also to meet like-minded friendly folks.
We Stayed at the beautiful home of gitty210. It was fantastic! We enjoyed sititng in front of the lake enjoying a glass of wine with the view!
The place is amazing but we are wordless about the host. They make us feel like we were at home!
Will repeat that experience anytime if we pass by.

This warm, friendly couple made me so welcome and even let me stay a second night. They have an outstanding lake front location and a beautiful big red dog. I would love to meet up with them again, either on the road or at their home. Happy trails...
As relatively new boondockers we aren’t quite sure what we will find when we reach our destination. Upon our arrival at Blackpool, we were greeted by Sonny the hosts’ well behaved dog. The hospitality extended to us was unexpected but certainly appreciated. Bruce and Birgit are seasoned boondockers who generously shared many helpful hits with us.
It would be wonderful to meet this couple on the road.

We really enjoyed our stay with Brigitte and Bruce. Loved sitting on the deck enjoying a cup of coffee and sharing camping and ROADTREK experiences. Great couple, great site.
Tried to contact Gitty210 in April and in July. We received no response to our e-mails. Wonder if they are still accepting boondocking guests. We have a 27 foot travel trailer with solar panels, and no pets, so would be easily accommodated.
