Are you looking for your next camping adventure but tired of Provincial Parks and KOA campgrounds? Want to get away but craving something different than the norm?
Footprints is an adults-only, pet free, 10+ acre resort hidden away in beautiful Hastings Highlands on a private lake. Guests usually book a room, villa or cabin while staying with us, but there’s room to pitch a tent or park a camper, trailer or RV on the grounds as well.
While Footprints is NOT a campground by any stretch of the imagination, we welcome campers and are happy to accommodate our camping guests. When you book, let us know what you’ll be camping in. If you’ll be bringing a camper or RV let us know the length of your rig so we can reserve room for the really big ones.
There are no ‘sites’ available here. Upon arrival, our host will take you on a tour of the grounds. They will point out the options you have for your camping setup, and usually let you decide what spot you prefer. There are a few shaded, grassy areas to choose from, including one that overlooks the lake. After unloading, we ask that all vehicles be parked in the parking lot to protect our grounds and to reduce the visible barriers to our spectacularly beautiful location.
Footprints is a ‘self-catering’ resort, which means there are no restaurants on site, and guests prepare and cook their own meals in our fully equipped kitchen(s). For campers, this means you don’t need to pack your entire camp kitchen setup! You may if you wish, of course, but most guests end up in the kitchen or using one of our many BBQs around the grounds. There are multiple large fridges for guests to store their perishables in while vacationing with us and baskets for dry goods. By storing your foodstuff indoors, there is much less risk of pesky critters visiting your campsite at night. Please note: Our tap water is purified and perfect for drinking and cooking.
If you require electricity, we will do our best to provide it. Pack a long extension cord along with your gear and we’ll see what we can do for you. If it is imperative that you have electricity (C-pap machine, etc) let us know when you book so we are sure to be able to provide it.
And as always, everything at Footprints is included! Enjoy time on our sandy beach, and paddling around our private lake in our non-motorized boats: kayaks, canoes, standing paddle boards and pedal boat. Dive from the central diving platform, use the water trampoline, and lounge on the dock. There’s also a cool conversation pool if the lake is not your thing, or soak away your cares in the hot tub.
There are 3 campfires on-premise for communal use (sorry, no ground fires at campsites) where most of the guests gather in the evenings to get to know each other. Free firewood is available and no need to purchase or bring any with you.
If there’s a show or game that you just have to see, there is satellite TV available in the Lounge. There’s also an ice machine in the Lounge, and even a blender in the unlicensed Tiki Bar if you wish to whip up some frosty daiquiris, so be sure to BYOB.
There are his and hers washrooms available for our camping visitors, with clean, modern showers, and even an outdoor shower for sandy feet. Be sure to bring your own towels for showering, the beach, and hot tub.
Get bored easily? Everything on the grounds is available to you as well: yard games, ping pong, basketball, and bicycles. There is a trail around our lake, or head off resort to find a more challenging trail. Forget something? It’s just a 15-minute drive into town where you’ll find shopping, antiquing, rockhounding, and more.
So as you can see, camping at Footprints is not your ordinary camping trip. Because our resort is Adults Only and not for pets, you can enjoy an adult vacation without hearing dogs barking or children being children. Sleep in, bask in the natural peace and enjoy a vacation like no other. See you at Footprints Resort!
