Raven’s Knoll is a unique campground and event centre located near Eganville, Ontario. This beautiful, natural 100 acre property is located on the Bonnechere River, near Golden Lake. It is the home of events large and small, from events like the Kaleidoscope Gathering to family weddings. Not only is Raven’s Knoll a great laid back place to camp or have your event, but there are many interesting things to do and see in the area.
Facilities: Raven’s Knoll is situated on the Bonnechere Riverfront, with beach swimming and access to both Wilber and Golden Lake. The campground is level and well-drained, with whispering white pines providing shade. A number of buildings provide amenities, such as a comfort station with flush toilets, showers and a laundry, as well as a group events building. Pathways run through the properties large forested areas, and communal areas like fire pits have been established. We also have many plans for the property.
Directions: The property is just a few minutes outside of Eganville, Ontario, on highway 60 heading towards Algonquin Park. It takes about 1.5 hours to get to Raven’s Knoll from Ottawa, about 4.0 hours from Toronto, and 3.5 hours from Montreal.
Reservations: Our camping season runs from May to September. During this period the campground will be closed to the public for a few particular scheduled events, but for the most part is freely open to camping. So please contact us early to preregister your group camping holiday, event, or family vacation. You will find our rates extremely reasonable.
Staff and Volunteers: Raven’s Knoll was established as a home base for the Kaleidoscope Gathering. All profits from both the Kaleidoscope Gathering and Raven’s Knoll are invested directly back into improving Raven’s Knoll and running the property. Both Raven’s Knoll and the Kaleidoscope Gathering could not exist without the hard work and dedication of volunteers. Work weekends begin the first weekend in May and end after the regular camping season. Camping is free during work weekends for the volunteers, and an optional food plan is generally available. People with special skills or just a good attitude and willingness to help are welcome! If you would like to assist as a Raven’s Knoll volunteer, we would love to hear from you!
