Des gens respectueux

C’est agréable de voir des familles voyager en boondocking. Une famille respectueuse et discrète. Leur carte de remerciement témoigne de beaucoup de talents. Merci pour la carte et le bon miel. Je les recommande aux hôtes.

Great Family

Very nice young family, all very pleasant and very easy to visit with. They were neat and clean and are welcome back anytime. They were in a hurry so we didn't have a lot of time to converse but I remember being of that age and being on time constraints also.

They had even went out of their way to make a personalized wood carving for me, and presented it to me when they arrived. Their daughter presented it to me and I found out it was a family project, which is better than a store bought item, it is greatly appreciated! Thanks for stopping by.

A quiet night’s rest

We arrived a little later than originally planned but these hosts were very gracious. They invited us to enjoy their campfire but we were too tired, though it was tempting. We parked in the grass near the road, which was very quiet as there is almost no traffic on it. A very nice stay with nice hosts. Highly recommend!

Quiet and Tranquil.

We enjoyed our limited time with the host family . The site was easily accessed by our 30ft RV but parking beneath the walnut trees in season was problematic. Ask the host for alternative - the site was simply leveled , quiet and peaceful.
Thanks to the family,

Shady spot on a hot day

WalnutRidge’s Host Location was easy to find and get into. The Hosts offered us 15 Amp electric and water and an option on two different sites. We opted for the shaded area by the drive. This option offers no amenities but suited us just fine. The nights were dark and quiet. We enjoyed visiting the beach at Sarnia, shopping at Petrolia and the Oil Museum atOil Springs. We even were able to watch lawn mower races.
The Host were very gracious and stopped by often and checked to see if we needed anything. Their children were well spoken and very well mannered. Wally the Lab was happy to see us and also well behaved.
We will request this location again when in the area and highly recommend to others.

Lovely quiet stay

We had a lovely stay at this home and property. Friendly family and great location to tour the area. We had wonderful drives along the St.Clair river and Sania waterfront.

Thank you for your hospitality.

Great hosts

We had a great time staying at Walnut Ridge! Beautiful family and great hosts.
We spent a great afternoon together at the beach (~15min away) and had dinner together. We even got to meet their extended family. Everyone was super nice and our kids got along great! We made great memories. Thank you again for letting us stay with you!

100% positive experience.

We ended up being late arriving because of delays at the border. They met us at the road with a flashlight. Our stay ended with pumpkin pancakes for breakfast. A wonderful family. They made us feel right at home. Wish we could’ve gone to the fiddle competition.

Wonderful quiet place and awesome hosts

We spent a night with WalnutRidge, and found the location without problems. We were welcomed friendly and spent some time on the campfire, even were offered marshmallows to roast. It was a great night and i would really recommend to stay if you're able.
thanks and hope you're all doing well again.

we stopped here on our way to the US. The hosts were extremely obliging and a very delightful family. Great parking area. The ducks were too cute.
