Quiet oasis

A great place for a quiet night! We enjoy our overnight stay at Douglas Oasis. We walked down the quiet road and watched cows grazing in nearby fields. There was firewood and a fire pit for us to use. A lovely spot!! Thank you again!

The stars, oh my the stars!!

Loved this beautiful pastoral setting. Peace and quiet and lovely fields. The stars were so amazing, some of the clearest views we’ve ever seen of them! Thank you for the opportunity to stay in this beautiful place!!

Comfortable stay and welcoming hosts

We had a great stay in Marathon. Our hosts and their terrific dogs were warm and welcoming. After we settled in, we took a walk to the pebble beach which was beautiful. Thanks again!

Great quiet place to rest and relax

We had a wonderful stay here! Our host was very nice and neighbourhood was quiet, excellent place for us to rest after a long drive. Marathon is a beautiful town and we loved exploring it. Our only regret is not having the chance to get to know our hosts a ljttle more, but we’re hoping we can make up for that next time!

Great private spot

The host was so accommodating and pleasant to communicate with. We didn’t meet him, but did meet his brother who stopped by the site.
Turkeys calling to gather in the morning, waterfalls, caves and swimming in biking distance.
Would love to stay there again.

Jean is a legend

What a wonderful and kind lady - she is from NL, so of course she is wonderful. Jean let the kids pet the dogs and watch a cartoon, put a load of laundry on and just chat about NL and travelling. Really lovely lady and near to the famous pebble beach. Gorgeous.

Very welcoming hosts

The hosts were wonderful! They couldn’t have been more welcoming, offering me electrical and water. They even invited me for dinner. Their dogs are so cute and friendly. I had a great sleep as their street was so quiet and dark. I will definitely return to overnight with J and J. 😁

Thanks to our hosts for a great overnight spot. It was nice getting off the road and out of the Lake Superior fog for a bit!! Very generous hosts living in a lovely corner of Ontario. Thanks again for letting us share your space.

Very Positive experience

Our first Boondockers Welcome experience was with cpsigmtr. We had a great time. Their dogs are adorable and VERY well behaved and friendly. They both really enjoy meeting new people and could not be any more welcoming.

Perfect overnight spot

Our hosts were very welcoming and offered free wi-fi and if needed water fill and power. A great quiet spot overnight and a quick on & off the highway. Thanks for sharing you space with weary travellers

Peaceful and kind

Though our hosts were away and we only asked a few hours prior arriving, they let us stay in their flat driveway and use power in a most peaceful quiet neighborhood. Walked around Penn Lake Trail which is nearby. Thank you so much.

Great spot to stay when ! Quiet and we felt very safe!

Extremely Hospitable Host

J & J & family were very hospitable. We felt completely at home. The area was a big, grassy field overlooking green pastures. Big skies at night! Their 3 friendly doggies would visit us twice a day. Highly recommend this site. Thank you guys!

Got lost but now we are found!

I think Google maps needs to visit Marathon and do a re shoot! She had us going in many directions until I pulled out the trusty old iPad and did an actual visual of the various streets and was able to plot my own route through the maze!

Although these hosts were away they certainly provided more than asked for so we were pleasantly surprised. Their driveway easily can hold two rigs and the street would hold another!

Great spot

The space was exactly what we needed perfect for a night to rest with our ac on.
The host wasn't there but he made sure that we knew everything to get set up properly.

East access, quiet relaxing

Hosts were so accommodating as we shuffled around a move. Offered wifii access which is so great in northern Ontario and able to plug in to make coffee in the morning. We had another family overnight and had lots of room to easily park both of our trailers. Had time to check out Pebble Beach on shoreline which is recommended.

Nice quiet overnight location

Large grassy property, easy to find and plenty of places to park. I had originally planned on staying at the Walmart in Renfrew but I’m so glad I came here instead. Thank you for letting me stay.

Bring a beer ... And some wit ! 😁

what an adventure

Very helpful host, (when we woke up in the morning with a significant amount of snow on the ground ( 8" by 10h00 am)), they offer all the support to help us get out of this situation and to finally get home with our little travel trailer. ouffffff what a drive !!!!!!!

Great hosts

This is our second time here. Great hosts who were concerned about our safety regarding the snowstorm that hit Northern Ontario and the COVID lockdown. We crossed into Ontario just in time. These hosts kept us up to date with what was happening. Thank you for a great place to stay, safely and your friendship. You welcomed us with open arms Covid style.
Until we meet again.

Super Ultra!

The hosts are wonderful people - friendly and extremely helpful!

The location is easily accessible and we had no issues parking our 45’ long truck and trailer in the driveway and staying connected! That was a bonus!

They even helped diagnose a flaky battery disconnect switch and design a clever solution to help restore battery power to our RV!

Highly recommended!

A great spot close to the trans Canada Highway and close to a small town

The hosts J&J were welcoming and hospitable offering us anything we might need. Hookup, water WIFI. lots of space in the driveway. What more do you need. Thank you J&J.

Great spot, thank you!

We enjoyed three nights in fall colour season at this wonderful oasis, a great jumping off place from which to explore the surrounding countryside. We didn't have an opportunity to meet our host, but sure appreciated the hospitality. There was lots of space for our motor home and car, and a terrific view. Our host offered use of the fire pit too. Many thanks, cpsigmtr!

A very special place !

We really liked our stay at the " Douglas Oasis" .
This camping spot is somewhat higher than the most of the surrounding land;
and it is an 'open-concept' (a field) location.
This means the view is beautiful, and the experience all the more serene.

Warm Friends, Warm Fire

Really NICE welcome after a long day. Straight and level parking, didn’t need to unhook the towed. Power line was waiting for us. Spend a great evening chatting with these interesting and wonderful folks around a warm fire. It was great! They made us feel very welcome and comfortable and we would love to stay here again.

A Dark Sky Preserve!

Nice flat, grassy spot on a quiet road with good views... dark as you'll find anywhere at night! Great for star-gazing. Easy in, easy out with a nice gate at the approach. Thank you "cpsigmtr" for the great parking spot!

Quiet country location

We had a lovely stay here. The sky is quite dark so we were able to see lots of stars, the milky way and even shooting stars and meteors! We were serenaded to sleep by the cows and really enjoyed the peacefulness of this location. If you come this way, you should check it out. Thanks cpsigmtr for allowing us to enjoy your property!

Boondocking All Inclusive

Extremely nice people! Offered us power, water, wifi, even washing machine and shower. Site is in town but was easy to get to with a 30ft motor home. Would stay there again!

Super friendly and helpful!

We stayed say both of cpsigmtr's locations, which was perfect on our trip across Ontario. In Douglas, we slept in a beautiful field, listening to cows moo-ing. In Marathon, we had an easy suburban location not far off the highway. It was quiet and comfortable.

Cpsigmtr were very hospitable, inviting us to their campfire in Douglas, moving their truck in Marathon to give us a flatter spot. The electrical cord was out ready for us to plug in!

Many thanks to you both!

Great Folks!

Nice welcome after a long day. Level parking, didn’t need to unhook the toad - even cooked some hotdogs on the back fire pit. Wonderful sense of humour.

Friendly, helpful hosts!

John and Jean are good people! Had power waiting for us when we pulled up, let us get some quality time with their three dogs, let us get set up for the night then offered us some beer and conversation until we were ready to turn in. Great people to stay with, and after 10 it was so quiet!

Great stop on the Lake Superior Route

A great place to stop on the Lake Superior route through Northern Ontario. Found the place easily with the directions I got and I arrived to a warm welcome and very helpful guidance backing into place for the setup. While I was blocking the trailer a power cord showed up ready to go.

Had a nice visit with great people. I will definitely stop again on my next trip on the Lake Superior route through Northern Ontario.

Saved us!

Hello,
We have been on the road for 7 months or what was supposed to be a year long trip. But as we all know the world has changed and we are heading home to PEI. We were fortunate enough to find a few campsites open before Thunder Bay, ON, but after that most were closed. We found this Host and we could not have been luckier!!! The parking is level and easy, we have a 26" TC & they offered for us to plug in. Here's the best part! We have been traveling across Canada pretty quickly considering the travel restrictions, only stopping for gas and groceries. We over looked the propane.......😐. Theses kind folks called a family member and they brought a tank. How great was that????? It was cold, so we were very grateful. These are hard times for many people, when you see acts of kindness like this, you know we are going to be alright.
With great thanks,
~Jeana & Mark
