NOTE: For winter camping, depending on weather and road conditions, you may have to hike or snowshoe up to 1.5 km to reach the yurt. This is a real backwoods experience! Our camp is a private, 350-acre wilderness on a 35-acre lake (the first of the Lingham Lakes system in Frontenac County). Less than 3 hours from downtown Toronto, and less than 2 hours from Ottawa. Access an extra 8600 hectares of remote trails and lakes in adjacent Mellon Lake Conservation Reserve.

The space
Located in the rugged Land O’ Lakes region of Eastern Ontario, our camp is a private, 350-acre wilderness, on the first of the Lingham Lakes in Central Frontenac Township, County of Frontenac. (Please note this is not Lingham Lake in Hastings County, north of Madoc.)

We offer a rustic, but comfortable camping experience, in a huge, fully insulated yurt, just steps away from the large, private frozen lake. Our yurt accommodates a maximum of four adults.

We have recently installed an outdoor wood-fired red cedar barrel sauna. Whether you prefer dry heat or clouds of steam, enjoy the benefits of a Swedish traditional outdoor sauna experience during your stay!

Activities include hiking or snowshoeing for kilometres through the woods or down the lake, relaxing in the sauna, chopping firewood, reading by the woodstove, toasting smores at the lakeside firepit, and enjoying a cozy evening stargazing through the domed skylight. A winter paradise! IMPORTANT NOTICE: Do not walk or snowshoe on the lake unless we first confirm that it is safe. The ice is often very uneven and could be extremely dangerous.
Please note there is no water and no electricity.

The trails are not suitable for ATVs or snowmobiles - no off-roading allowed on our property. Also, hunting is not allowed anywhere on the property.

Guest access
We have pre-emptively blocked our January through March availability calendar to prevent guests from potentially booking a stay in unsafe winter conditions (i.e., dangerously frigid cold, icy roads, snowstorms, etc.) Over the winter, we will be opening the yurt on a week by week basis only after first checking the weather forecast for that week. Please check our availability calendar a few days before you would like to book a stay during these months, thank you!

Please note our yurt accommodates up to a maximum of four adults.

We can provide dry firewood for the firepit or sauna for $10 per large bag (enough for one or two nights by the campfire). If you would like any campfire wood, please let us know and we will update your reservation. (Note: We provide all the wood you will need for heating the yurt for free.)

What's included:

- huge 32' diameter insulated yurt (804' sq. ft.)
- woodstove with plenty of firewood and kindling (cooktop large enough to boil water and heat stew or soup in a small pot)
- one queen bed and two double beds with futon mattresses, fitted sheets (no top sheets), wool blankets (for extra warmth), & pillows with pillowcases (You still need to bring your warmest winter sleeping bags!)
- sofa
- propane barbeque/grill (with plenty of fuel), metal spatula, tongs, & grill brush
- full set of utensils and tableware for four: knives, spoons, forks, bowls, saucers, plates, stainless steel glasses, mugs
- camping percolator, plus coffee and assorted tea
- kettle for boiling water
- basic cooking supplies: small pots for heating soups and stews, frying pan
- salt & pepper, olive oil, sugar

- dresser with drawers
- antique washstand
- rustic night table
- first aid kit & fire extinguisher

- assorted board games, books, and magazines
- two pairs of slippers
- outdoor fire pit down by the lake
- enough wood for the wood stove to heat the yurt during your stay
