It’s Sparkling at the Lighthouse!


July 1st is almost here! Are you ready to celebrate?

What’s better than opening weekend at the Lighthouse Cottages and Camping with an Ontario wide celebration of how fantastic Canada is? This year we’re bringing some sparkle to the celebration by bringing in the red and white, having sparklers for the kids and connecting with our Lighthouse community again. Yes!! Oh wait – that’s important news too. We’re open and so excited to see you all this year πŸ™‚

Our amazing trailer folks are already in and gearing up for what we’re hoping will be a season of campfires and laughs. With all this rain, at least we know we won’t have a fire alert any time soon πŸ˜‰ We just hope our firewood will dry out in time! We practice fire safety just like we do safety every where else at the Lighthouse but nothing says camping like a roaring fire and marshmallows toasting away. Forks crossed we can make some new memories this year across the firelight.

If you haven’t made plans to join us for the July 1st weekend, we’re happy to offer Cottages 1 and 2 as well as our large campsite. The cottages can each sleep 4 (or 6 in a pinch) so you can bring the family and cottage in comfort. If it rains, there’s always our amazing gazebo that’s stocked with games, cards and magazines to while away the rainy day. If you’ve got a huge group of friends and want to join us, our large campsite can fit up to 7 tents or 2 trailers. How many people you fit in the tent depends if you plan to sleep well that weekend πŸ˜‰

If we’ve given you the best idea ever for how to celebrate Canada turning 150, we’d love you to get in touch and join us. Interested in learning more about the history of camping and cottaging in Canada? We’ve got some info on that too. Check out our Pinterest page for ideas on what to bring for the kids, recipes that will tempt any gourmand (or are easy enough for the husband to whip up ;0 ) and some bear talk.

We hope to see you soon so we can share your smiling face on our guest pages and some happy memories on our blog. Have you got a story you’d like to share? Contact us at: and we’ll share your happy times at the Lighthouse!

Yours from the Lighthouse,


The Boyd Family



John and Paula Boyd have a loooong history of making people feel welcome. Always the first ones to offer their home for a family or friend get together, they've never hesitated to offer hospitality. When looking for a business opportunity that could put their love of community and desire to build something for their family together, the idea to purchase a camping resort came up. Never ones to shy away from a challenge, they've jumped in with both feet to make The Lighthouse Cottages and Camping an extension of their home.
