About Steven King

Father of four wonderful children and two amazing granddaughters! Mrs King is a great mother and incredible wife! My four kids have given me my life's greatest joy!

I have been in the manufacturing world for 42 years traveling the globe and this camp is by far my favorite place on earth!

Steven King purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Steven King chose Ontario

My mom and dad brought me to this camp in 1964 when it was one of Ontario's finest tourist camps! I fell in love with it as a boy and when I had an opportunity to buy it, I immediately began renovating and making it like it was when the Beatles were still touring!

What makes this cottage unique

This property offers a unique blend of total privacy and beauty beyond belief! There are only 2 other cottages on our 25 miles of shoreline insuring each guest a feeling of having their own private lake! The views and sunsets are breathtaking but it is the total privacy & beauty that makes this rustic getaway one of the best places ever! If you love an authentic rustic setting with incredible hand built log cabins over a half of century old then this is your spot. Whether it's for a family reunion where you can enjoy nature and loved ones or a group of top executives that you wish to show your appreciation for or simply a group of good friends wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of the city this is paradise. Great fishing, a kitchen that can cook for an army(cook can be provided), amazing views and we even have a cigar cabin located right on the lake shoreline.

Breathtaking words can not describe the beauty of this site!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to have our wedding here! Can not say enough about the facility, it was more than we could have hoped for! Steven and his team (site mangers) did all they could to help make our day even more special can not thank them enough! We didn't want to leave. And are already talking about a return visit celebrate our anniversary! Everyone who attended our wedding celebration was blown away by the beauty of this site. The pictures on the VRBO website do not do this place justice.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 32 people and found this place to perfectly suit our needs. Loved the quietness and the fact that our kids could make all the noise they wanted without disturbing anyone else. Also a big plus was the kitchen for preparing large meals and the main eating area to seat everyone during the rain! The owner and caretaker did a fantastic job of making sure our needs were met, and went above and beyond. Definitely will be going back!

Unforgettable experience! Excellent Management! The ideal Canadian lakefront cabin getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is THE place to visit if you want the best Canadian lakefront cabin experience! This spacious property is surrounded by a picturesque landscape which accommodates large groups comfortably. The owner was exceptionally kind and went above and beyond to help me when in need and the property manager reciprocated and extended this kindness. The lake is phenomenal with its inviting shallow waters and perfect temperature and is easily navigated with the provided boat and canoe. Our group also spent good quality time in front of the beautiful fireplaces using the provided firewood. The cabins themselves are all fantastic and are well cared for. The satellite TV and internet connection were appreciated but were rarely used because of how captivating everything else was. Morning walks are rejuvenating and the waterfront sunsets are a dream. Prepare to make unforgettable memories WHEN you come here!

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

I don't usually write reviews. But our stay @ Kings Camp deserves an excellent and remarkable review. It is not only the magnificent campsite, but the owner/host himself was worthy of outstanding praises. Steven, was a gracious host and a kind-hearted man. He never gets tired of answering my numerous questions/ inquires, and he responded beyond my expectations. With so many exchanges of emails, my family and I already built up friendship with him. For several years of camping with a huge group, it's our first time to have this marvelous experience. We had enough space for everyone. Each cabin has unique style and the matching memorabilia/mementos will take you back in time, purely heirloom pieces one would normally "encased", but they're there for us to touch and enjoy. The Main lodge is extravagantly decorated and immensely large for the whole group to converge, eat, play and have fun. There was a large water trampoline that got the kids very excited to take the plunge into the very clear and evenly shallow lake. The camp has enough amenities to make your stay a truly wonderful and safe experience!

Once again, thank you Steven for the privilege of having personally known you. Hope to see you again soon. For sure, we will be coming back!

beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful property i will say that the oven and grill should be replaced as it sometimes works other then that its an amazing piece of property that they have.

Owner's Response: Thank you Alex for your review.....the 1952 Garland stove/griddle/oven's six(6) commercial burners all work perfect but you're right, the "oven" hasn't since The Beatles were touring and that's why we have three(3) other Viking ovens on the property. We have found most people enjoy grilling out in one of our two outdoor areas and next year, we plan on building two(2) permanent outdoor grills and not use the traditional Webber propane ones we currently use......We appreciate your feedback and if I can ever find someone old enough who remembers these incredible antique cast iron Garland stoves, I will gladly have them work on that one oven......Thanks again and have a great year!

Best family reunion ever <3

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot begin to describe how wonderful and memorable our 3 night stay was at the King's camp. I was the person who found the rental online and presented it to our family of 23. Even though everyone was in agreement, I was still a little anxious about how they would feel about the camp. Once everyone settled into their cabins and we met at the fire for a meal of pie iron pizzas - it began to soak in what a wonderful 3 days we were in for. My parents are 83 and 80 and they loved every bit of the weekend. We had set up a sign up sheet for meal preps and clean ups and they signed up right down to the youngest nephew who was 12. The babies were off the hook this time :) To see my Dad standing at the grill cooking the breakfast meats and my Mom with her hands in dishwater - happy as all get out - it was a blessing for sure. We spent one day pretty much in the lodge as it was cool and drizzly. It was so much fun. A fire burned all day. Games were played, naps taken, snacks never ended. It was heavenly. The next day was spent on the dock and in the water. It was so much fun. We loved the two boats and also had several inflatable boats, a couple of paddle boards and a kayak. My two year old grandsons love to sit on my lap at the computer and look at all of the pictures over and over. Whenever we had questions - Doug the caretaker was right there with answers. He was so helpful. We definitely will keep this camp in mind for our next family reunion. It was fabulous. Thank you Steven & Susan for sharing your piece of heaven on earth with us.
