Hi, We're Jon & Charisma!

Welcome to Lazy Rock

We would love to welcome you to our family run campground only  minutes from North Bay, ON just off the Trans-Canada 17. 

You will find a total of 38 lakeside & pull-thru RV sites, serviced and unserviced tent sites as well as seasonal sites, RV rental units and our new A-Frame bunkie coming soon. 30amp RV service available with water hookups and a full-service dump station upon exiting the park. 

We offer a relaxing atmosphere perfect for the couple looking to take a break from their hectic lives and immerse themselves in nature, or the thrill seekers looking to experience all the Mattawa area has to offer! Enjoy fishing, canoeing, kayaking, paddleboating and swimming on our secluded Taggart Lake, or take in the view from your site.  After a long day, hang out by the campfire and stare up at the stars and milky way so bright they light up the sky.

From the VMUTS multi-use trails to the meeting of the Ottawa and Mattawa rivers, this rich in history gem of a community provides everything you need to experience the outdoors the way nature intended.

We purchased this beautiful piece of property May 2017 and everything has been renovated since; new washrooms, showers, docks, picnic tables and more! We are continually adding new features to ensure the best possible guest experience; don’t just take our word for it, check out our online reviews to see what our guests have to say from the beginning to now!

WHY DO OUR GUESTS SAY WE'RE A '5 STAR' CAMPGROUND?

LOOK HOW FAR WE'VE COME

We’ve invested everything we have physically, mentally and financially to create the amazing camping experience we think you deserve.

Viewed the Property on a Whim
We decided to go for a 3 hour drive from Midland, ON that day after seeing the MLS listing, before contacting any realtors. We put in a firm offer hours later and our home was on the market 3 days after that...
