5. Spacious camp surrounded by forests (from USD 114)

This spacious camp is located on a field that used to be the site of an Algonquin village. Now reclaimed by nature, the area is inhabited by local wildlife such as deer and foxes. There’s also a hiking trail that leads to a creek where you can fish if you have a license.

The tent has been set up on a raised wooden platform that also acts as a porch. In fact, with the availability of two Adirondack chairs, it provides the ideal spot to relish the greenery. If you’re camping with a big group, you can also rent a pop-up dome tent and set it up beside the canvas tent.
