A one-of-a-kind Hipcamp location

We’ve selected one of our favorite Hipcamps in Canada, a primo lakeside location in Ontario just two hours north of Toronto. It’s a waterfront escape for paddling, swimming, hiking and stargazing, accessible via a short 1.8-km hike for true seclusion. But don’t fret — your Hipcamp host can help get you there.

Outfitted with the latest camping gear

To make sure you’re camping in style, the winner will receive a full MEC camp gear package for four people. The package includes everything you need for your trip and future stellar nights out: tents, sleeping pads, sleeping bags, camp chairs, camp kitchen gear, headlamps, duffles… the list goes on and on. Bottom line: it’s extensive. It’ll all be waiting for your arrival.
