“Wonderful owners!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

My husband and I have been going to this campground every year for the past five years and it has never let us down. We love it here because we know that we will always be treated wonderful by the owners. They are very accommodating and the grounds are very well maintained. The ONLY negative thing is the ATV washing station. Last time we were there it was running ALL day and it is very loud and annoying because the compressor turns on and off. I wish they would enforce some limitations on when it can be used or a limit on how long it can be used for.

Other than that, this place was great and my husband and I can't wait to go back in the summer.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week while he was taking a course over all it was ok we rented an rv. It was older we were kind of expecting a newer one and a little bigger but it was alright for what we payed. We really enjoyed the deck that was built on an any maintenance issues we had were dealt with quickly. We enjoyed the pool it was very well kept.

We stayed at South Wind on the Friday of the August long weekend 2013 and it was the first stop for us that weekend. It should have been the only stop. Pat and Dave were some of the most accommodating hosts I've ever had the privilege of meeting. We got there late so it was dark and wet so we upgraded our basic campsite to a little suite however to our delight in front of our unit was a little portable campfire as well as a BBQ which allowed us to have all our camping fun without having to setup a tent.

The room was extremely comfortable and there was a full kitchen inside as well as a clean and well maintained bathroom. The campground itself was beautiful as we discovered the next morning and we were very tempted to just stay here the whole weekend. We will certainly be back and this time stay longer too. If you want to get away from the larger campgrounds, this little spot is just perfect for the family.

Stayed here for 4 nights. July 14-18. We brought our Atv,s and had a great time. Weather was hot so after a day on the trails we had a swim in their well kept pool. Rates are very reasonable here for what you receive. Rooms are air conditioned and well kept.The owners are very friendly and helpful. We have stayed here twice now and will go back again in the fall.

Room Tip: The efficiency units are are good size.

I would just like to say that I have read the previous eleven reviews and I agree with all of them. Dave and Pat are great people that will bend over backwards to make your stay the best it can be. Great service and clean rooms at an affordable price. ATV friendly with lots of parking. Beautiful ATV trails accessible right from the motel. When we come up to go ATVing, we have always stayed at South Wind. We have come up twice a year for the past four years and every experience was the same - FABULOUS!!!! Can't wait for the snow to melt and get back up to see Dave and Pat!

We stayed here for 2 nights in order to go snowmobiling. What a pleasant spot. The rooms were Spotless!! I am a hard person please in this area, I am a clean freak and this met my standards. I have to say this was one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed, even compared to chain motels/hotels here and the US, Cuba.. The beds were comfortable and rooms a great size for a family of 4. Owners very nice and accommodating.
Snowmobiling was wonderful. Trail right off the property with perfect access to main trails. We were going to Poker Run at the Haliburton Forest and it was close drive(by vehicle) to get there as well. Great location, great comfortable rooms and amenities are close by for groceries and meals etc.
I highly recommend this spot for anyone looking for great location, great rooms and all at a great price.
We will be back for sure:)

Room Tip: We were in room 11
