5 Camping Spots You’ve Never Heard Of

Our passion for the great outdoors runs deep. It’s only natural for us to share some hidden gems that just might fuel your love for new adventures too! Are you curious to know where our team escapes to when they crave something beyond the ordinary? Dive into our list of off-the-beaten-path favorites, and let the exploration begin!

Temagami Region, Ontario Canada

This region in Ontario on the Canadian shield is a great place to plan a canoe trip. Lots of the lakes have crystal clear water that you can see straight to the bottom of. One of my favourite places to camp is on Lake Maskinoge where I spent some time as a kid or McConnell Bay on Lake Chiniguchi. McConnell Bay has a wicked beach that is shallow for a long way out, perfect for playing in the water. The campsite is massive with lots of options. Lake Temagami is also a great place to paddle for a couple of days due to its sheer size and endless bays to explore. It also has a couple of houseboats that frequent the lake as well.

McCubbins Gulch - Mt. Hood Recreational Forest, USA

A rustic campground with shady sites, many of which are adjacent to a creek. Picnic tables are available as well as a vault toilet. This campground and day use area is within the McCubbins Gulch OHV (Off-Highway Vehicle) designated trail system area. Campers are likely to hear and see OHV enthusiasts during their stay. Located at the edge of the national forest. With a combination of 120 miles of single track and quad trails, it’s great for dirt biking and quadding! Awesome and secluded and close to the Portland, OR area.

Close enough to enjoy Glacier National Park on a day trip but away from the crowds, Flathead Lake has been one of my favourite places to visit over and over again. The lake is incredibly clear and perfect for paddle boarding with many campgrounds to choose from in the area. Spend the day driving around the lake stopping at some of our family’s favourites like Flathead Lake Cheese Factory in Polson, Garden Bar in Big Fork, and Blacktail Mountain Books (a used bookstore you can get lost in!) in Kalispell.

My family stayed at a great little site in Comox a couple of years ago that is run by a young family that rejuvenated the place. It was an amazing spot, steps away from the ocean. Very clean and well maintained with a great little retail shop, kids play area, outdoor cooking area, and a handful or super friendly people who live there full time. Visit their website HERE for more.

Shunda Creek/Kootenay Plains Reserve, AB Canada

I enjoy camping in the Nordegg area because the scenery is gorgeous! There are falls, canyons, lakes and rivers to visit in the surrounding area, while getting a nice view of the mountains. There is also a good amount of hiking in the area, the paths range from easier trails with boardwalks to harder mountainous trails for the more advanced.

Great spot to ease into canoe tripping as it is perfect for family trips, day paddles and 2-3 night adventures. Easy access from the parking lot, small portages (or none at all, depending on your route) and very scenic landscape. About an hour northeast of Orillia, ON you’ll find 1,800 hectares of remote backcountry provincial crown and municipal lands comprised of mixed forests and 12 lakes with minimal development. Camping and canoeing routes include 47 campsites and 10 portages.
