Best spot by the water

So quiet and peaceful! Total silence, outstanding starry sky.. and the hosts were as generous as it gets. Totally spoiled my kids, who earned a new grandma right there :)

Great stay

Beautiful spot right next to the water if you have a small rig. Great people as well.

Perfect northern experience

Amazing experience in every way! The location is spectacular - most likely this was and will be the closest we ever camped to a lake (practical note: we came late in the evening and I drove straight in. However, the end of the driveway is more level, so I should have backed the trailer in.) And the hospitality was AAA+. Joetrek, as a host, was a fantastic walking encyclopedia about local attractions, mixed with some good travel stories. We took Joe’s canoe to the lake and paddled in the morning in a windless, waveless lake. On the way back home we decided that it would for sure be a repeat….maybe even a destination for a long weekend!

Very pleasant

We sure enjoyed our visit. Wonderful host. Made us feel at home. Sitting on the dock with a warm breeze and good conversation was perfect!!

Little Gem On the Lake

Was a great stay on a nice lake.

JoeTrek even let us take out the Canoe. Great Host

would definitely try to visit again!

Lakeside Serenity

Such a warm welcome to a remote shoreline overnight stay. Pretty view from our window of the lake. Unfortunately with the rain and Covid restrictions we couldn’t chat for long. Maybe another time we can visit on their deck!

Tight squeeze

Joetrek was very helpful in assisting us to back our RV (25' Winnebago View) into the lovely spot right next to the lake. Thank you, great stay.

Quiet Tranquil setting

Had a wonderful stay at Joe treks place.
He was welcoming and helpful with information. Offered up use of his kayak or canoe if we wanted to enjoy a paddle. Spent a bit of time with him at the fire pit one evening.
Off the beaten path and very quiet.

5 stars

JoeTrek and his partner have been wonderful hosts. We stayed there for two dream days. I parked my van in a small spot directly on the lake... fabulous. I never had so a nice place.
The hosts are at the same time friendly and discreet.
We spent one evening with them and an excellent « digestif » 👍🥃🥃and we had a lot of fun.
If the occasion occurs, we will certainly spend some other “dream days”.
Many thanks to our hosts.

Joetreks place

Stayed two nights. Beautiful view of lake. Friendly couple. Lettuce and onions from the garden. Used bonfire pit. Also offered for us to use canoe, kayak or paddle boat.
A good stay. Thanks again Joe.

Very welcoming and generous.

Amazing host, very generous, we had great conversations and it is like we already knew each other. Joetrek was waiting for us upon our arrival and showed us to our parking area. Over all really nice spot right on the water. We hope to see them again soon.

Wonderful Hosts

Our hosts went way beyond just a place to park. We had a wonderful dinner and an evening of games with them. The location’s beauty cannot be captured in a photo. It is practically a private lake. So peaceful.

End of the road

You’re not gonna get any traffic passing by your spot and right on a great little lake.
We really enjoyed our visit and learned a new game. Our hosts were a lovely couple we enjoyed getting to know. We would stay again

Nice boondocking spot a bit off the beaten path.

We stayed with Joetrek for one night at his lake "camp" near Sudbury, Ontario. A most pleasant fellow, and a nice spot on a small lake popular with locals. He was unable to spend the night there, but he was most accommodating in offering use of his decks and porch. Lovely sunrise over the lake!
