We live on a country property along the maitland river. Plenty of room to walk and stretch your legs. Not much shade. Good solid ground with fire pit with plenty of wood to use. We have a 30amp plug just inside our shop. You can hook up to the water but it's a long reach.This is a farming community so depending on the time of year they might be spreading manure on the fields. There is also a large Mennonite community in our area so horse and buggies frequently use the roads. Free dumping station 20 minutes away. Suggested Local Attractions:Lake Huron beaches are less than an hour away.

    Very well equipped site with awesome hosts. The campsite has a great view of the firepit and the picnic area with umbrella - no need to bring a table to dine on outside! We enjoyed a campfire one night with our hosts and the second night a romantic campfire evening for two! The stars were amazing along with the breezes during the day. Thanks again! Local Attraction for Museum Lovers in Harriston the local Rail Museum (highly recommend it - open seasonally only)

    It turned out to snow lightly during our stay, but our host and location on a beautiful property were perfect.
