About
Step back into a simpler time as you pull your RV into an oasis of history and natural beauty. Cradled by the tranquil Coldwater River, RV camping enthusiasts get the unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the rich heritage and serene rural landscapes that tell a story from as far back as 1830. Explore a vibrant past at the heart of Ontario's history, where the Woodrow Homestead stands as a proud testament to early Canadian life. Originally erected in the 1840s, this homestead invites you to stroll through the echoes of history on old stagecoach paths, while engaging with a remarkable collection of local artifacts that span over a century, from 1830 to 1950. As you relax in your RV amidst the 6.5-acre park-like setting, the sweet scent of heritage gardens will bewitch your senses, inviting you to unwind and explore. Picture yourself picnicking under the canopy of age-old trees, the gentle hum of the river a perfect backdrop to your alfresco dining. RV visitors won't just feast their eyes on the splendor of history's charm; they can savor the flavors of tradition with a delightful Devon Tea, a highlight during the warm months of July and August. The quaint gift shop offers a selection of memorabilia that's perfect for taking a piece of the past with you. This historic site is lovingly maintained by a dedicated team of volunteers, thriving on the support of visitors like you. With every thoughtful donation, you become a part of preserving this enchanting slice of history for future generations of RV campers and history buffs alike. So, turn off the beaten path and park your RV where each moment is a hands-on history lesson enveloped in the serenity of nature. Here, every breath is a story, and every visit supports the legacy of rural and village life that continues to enchant and educate within the welcoming embrace of this historic destination.
