  • We work with the 100-year rule – if everyone does what you do, every time they pass through, will the land look better or worse in 100 years? Whether that’s picking flowers or leaves, harvesting shoreline sweet gale for tea, or cutting into a live tree, ask yourself how your actions are impacting the broader ecology.
  • Quiet recreation includes camping, hiking, biking, paddling, and climbing, but also horseback riding, backcountry skateboarding, and unicycling – as long as it doesn’t have a motor, and you stick to suitable routes, it’s fine by us.
  • No speakers, no chainsaws, and definitely no fireworks!

No. We call our trips ‘assisted-backcountry camping’, meaning we curate your entire itinerary for you and offer in-person demonstrations on backcountry skills and safety measures before heading off on your own.

All of our trip prices are per group. This means that the listed price is what you pay and you decide how many guests to bring up to the max. group size. 

Contact us if you plan to come with 1-2 people and we may be able to offer a reduced price!

All of our online bookings are subject to a 6% reservation fee. We have included this fee in our prices so that the final price you are paying is what is listed on our website + hst. 



At all of our campsites we have created some designated spaces that are flat and suitable for up to 4 person tents.  

Feel free to get creative and find another spot to set up if you need to bring more tents than the listed number of tent pads. 


There aren’t washrooms as you’d expect in your home, but there are outdoor privy boxes / thunder boxes / treasures chests (they have many names). These are essentially outhouses without walls, but they have great views.

Want to get bored of catching 3lb bass? Land'escapes is the place for you! The many private lakes have been stocked with bass, offering a mix of lakes with fewer, larger bass, and Jocko Lake that notably got 2 guys nearly 150 bass in an afternoon. Shore lunch has never been easier! With canoes on the shores of most lakes, access is easy - just hike in, set up camp, and spend the afternoon and evening fishing.
A remote crag overlooking beautiful blue seas lake is good old Ontario adventure climbing. The remote granite wall has potential for a few weekends worth of single pitch 20 meter + routes.

The climbing is moderate and having had no traffic requires a hardy soul willing to pull on the occasional lichen covered rock, and tiptoe through gnarly ancient cedars on exposed ledges. There are however fun moves on solid, steep rock, and a few mellower slab lines.

Climb a few routes with relatively simple top rope set up or go for the first ground up ascent of 5.10+ routes that could be led on gear. Easier climbing exists but would be run out. The approach is long, the view incredible. A fun climbing challenge.
Explore the rugged terrain and natural beauty of the Land'escapes trails by bike! There's a diverse experience for riders of all levels. With a mix of rocky terrain, winding singletrack, wide tracks and scenic trails, riders can explore everything from rugged backcountry to tranquil lakes.

Planning a longer bike packing trip? The Central Ontario Loop Trail (COLT) trail runs right through Land'escapes so you can stop over for a night or two and camp right on the lake with canoes waiting for you there.
