This is a walk-in site. It's a private forested area and is an easy 100m walk from where you park. This area has a level spot large enough for a 6 person tent.The birds and hare love this spot.
We are a 10 acre working farm and host agro-tourism camping; We have free-frange animals. Our woodland is bordered by a creek and looped with trails. It is important that you read our write-ups to know more about our space.

The space
*This site, like all others on our property, is essentially our backyard -just a really big one. Please do not book here if you intend to throw parties or disrespect our space.*
Our walk-in site is a private spot that is removed from most of the farm noise. Occasionally the neighbour has her radio playing while she cleans her horse barn but that's usually the only noise you hear aside from the birds. The only "downside" to this site is that you must walk all of your gear in. We think it's more than worth it. This area has a level spot large enough for a 6 person tent and a second spot with a fire ring (currently removed). Propane cookstoves/BBQs are highly recommended. We have a table in the site but please bring chairs.

Our auxiliary building is near where you park and it has a flush toilet (no shower), and a sink for filling water jugs or washing dishes. This building is effectively our barn and is shared by all campers and farm hands. We are on septic. Please only use the toilet paper we supply and flush nothing but the tp and your waste. For your convenience, we allow our campers to charge their phones/small electronics in here but please do not plug in large items like cookers or hair dryers.

We try to create private camping spaces throughout our woods while respecting the wildlife that calls this place home; Deer and hare have many sleeping spaces here.
Our farm is 10 acres, mostly forested, with a salmon spawning creek and we're across the street from the ocean. Our permaculture farm is non-cert organic and we grow a large variety of produce and flowers.
Our farm is home to free range (truly free range all through our woods) chickens and ducks. Our campsites are part of our agro-tourism program and we offer education on animals, growing, plant identification, composting or permaculture.
*Farm life starts early*
Our animals are up at dawn and they make noise. If you don't want to hear farm animals this is not the place for you.
Matthew runs a motorcycle shop out of our garage so during the day you may hear motorcycles or a compressor running.

We have two children and they love to meet other kids.
We have a golden retriever who is a service dog in training. Please ignore her completely.

Where you’ll be

Qualicum Beach, British Columbia, Canada

We're away from it all but close enough that it's convenient.
We have no light pollution here so the star gazing can be unreal.
We love our close proximity to both the ocean and the lakes. We appreciate the quiet farm life.
Vancouver Island, as a whole, is our favourite place on Earth. We traveled around the world trying to find the spot we loved the most and we chose to settle here.
Qualicum Beach is a quaint little town that still has a small-time feel because by-laws do not allow for any big box stores. Stores close on oldschool hours. Usually closed on Sundays and after 5pm on weekdays.
The beaches here are so lovely. The beach across from us is mostly large rounded rocks but we have a huge amount of sealife. Many seals and sealions (you can hear them barking from our property in most months -especially spring.)
Close to us you will find Horne Lake Caves. A day trip here is awesome. The wind tends to pickup around 1 on the lake so we recommend a morning swim/canoe and then an afternoon trip through the caves.
About an hour drive from our place is Mt Washington. This is an unreal place for winter sports and only charges a fraction of what resorts on the mainland charge. Summer sports here are great too.
We recommend checking out Cumberland Village. Coombs (Goats on the Roof). Rathtrevor Beach in Parksville (huge sand beach). Little Qualicum Falls (waterfall hike).

We're an active young family and we're pretty easy-going. We're into natural health and grow a large portion of our own food. Mom manages the farm and paints artwork. Dad's a motorcycle mechanic and machinist. Both kids are into animals, playing outdoors, books and art. We all like to read and play games. A typical night at our house includes tending to the animals, a home-cooked meal followed by stories, baths then kids going to bed. Matthew and I stay up for more chores, play cards or boardgame and occasionally watch a movie.

During your stay

We like to give people space but also realise that our farm is large and people often need direction or want to chat about what we have going on here.
Our agrotourism experience can cover feeding animals, petting them, compost management, plant identification and permaculture practices.
We live in the large white house. If we're not tending to the fields or animals we're probably in there. Knock any time.
