Do you know or have you hosted this user?


We are newlyweds, not quite retired but looking at it coming in the next few years.

Our children are grown, grandchildren growing like they do, and we are empty nesters.

We are quiet, easygoing, love all outdoor activities, and are just starting our travelling adventures together. We're based in central Ontario and would love to see all of North America!

We love exploring new areas hiking, by ATV or by car.

We like to socialize around the campfire at night with a few friends and a coffee or a drink or two. Not really into late late nights or big parties.

If this works we would love to make it a permanent lifestyle.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Brad is a great mechanic and loves to figure things out. We are both interested in offgrid living and have experimented a little in that direction. Colleen loves anything to do with fabric and quilting. We're both pretty handy to have around, so if you need a hand with something, maybe we can work out a plan together.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We've not done this before, but right now we are looking at using this on our way between Ontario and the southwestern US, and when changing locations in the southern states from time to time over the winter months. Hopefully, the long way 'round!

Campnuts's Hometown

We live in the beautiful Kawartha Lakes region of Ontario, in the midst of many small lakes and rivers. We are right on the edge of where the Canadian Shield ends and the great farmland of southern Ontario begins. The best of all worlds.

We travel with a 36 foot Heartland Torque fifth wheel toy hauler, with 2 slideouts. We can do an overnight without putting out the slides, if necessary. May or may not have our ATV with us, and sometimes we pull a small trailer with a boat, depending on the length of the trip and our destination.

Lovely Hosts, Beautiful Property

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!

Fabulous serene setting

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

Awesome people, great place to stay

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.
