We are located in the Kawartha Lakes region of central Ontario. This is a beautiful area with numerous lakes and rivers. Great boating and fishing, ATV trails, snowmobiling, hiking and biking. About an hour northeast of Toronto.
We have a large property with ponds and hiking trails you are welcome to use, and can accommodate large rigs. If you are travelling together with someone else, we might be able to accommodate that too.
As we love to travel ourselves, we may not always be available, but many of our trips are short or flexible on date. Please give us a call with your tentative dates and we will see if we can work something out. We would love to meet you and hear your stories!
Away from the city lights in a quiet and peaceful area, with great stargazing at night. You can sometimes hear the wolves howling in the distance, or get an occasional visit from a deer or a wild turkey.
We are on a gravel road, but less than a kilometre (half mile) from the paved highway. We are on an acreage with lots of space for parking and turning.
Lots of space for both rigs and tow vehicles; parking will never be an issue.
We are available most days in the spring, summer and fall, though we do go camping from time to time. Send us a note and we'll see what we can do. Location is not available from December to April due to ground conditions (snow, mud, limited movement).
Peterborough lift locks; Trent Canal; Fenelon Falls (a very pretty small town); Lake Simcoe; lots of outdoor activities available. 90 minutes south to Toronto; an hour north to Haliburton Highlands.
Good boating, fishing, ATV, biking and hiking trails. Some local permits may be required.
Lots of smalltown fairs and outdoor concerts over the summer months.
Fenelon Falls and Lindsay (both within 15 minutes) both have good shopping for groceries, gas, TSC, Canadian Tire, Giant Tiger and numerous independent shops. Live theatre and cinema in Lindsay.
We spent three nights with Campnuts last week and it was a terrific visit. The property is gorgeous with big woodlots, numerous paths and open manicured trails with plenty of room to maneuver and park the largest RV. They were very friendly hosts and put on a bonfire for us. They welcomed our two large dogs who always travel with us. We set up camp near their large vegetable and flower gardens and we were invited to pick any flowers we liked when we left. The property is very quiet and the only noise at night was a few howling wolves off in the distance. Highly recommended!
We recently spent an overnight with Brad and Colleen who go by " campnuts" ...not only do they posses the most beautiful 100 acres of trees and atv trails, they try to live mostly off the grid. Brad led us out to the back of his property on his atv so that we could plck any spot we liked, to camp!.need less to say it was a pristine settng with lots of birds singing in the morning. We missed the howling of rhe coyotes but were assured that they are around quite often. We had a lovely evening around the fire with Brad and Colleen and two of the most polite grandkids ever!....thank you so much for your gracious hospitality! Doug and Cheryl...Dougmeister
We were met at the entrance, escorted in and invited to join them for a barbecue. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal, a bonfire, good conversation, in short just a great evening. We certainly plan to return on our way home this fall.
