The event is held at Raven’s Knoll Campground just a few minutes outside of Eganville, Ontario. Eganville is a small village that is part of the greater Township of Bonnechere Valley. The Knoll is in cottage country about 1.5 hours from Ottawa, about 4.0 hours from Toronto, and 3.5 hours from Montreal.
The nearest international airport is in the city of Ottawa, which is over an hour away. The nearest airport is in the town of Pembroke, which is about 30 – 45 minutes away, but flights into this airport are rare. Most people flying in from a great distance take the opportunity to visit Ottawa, as it is Canada’s capitol city.
You can catch a Greyhound bus to Pembroke pretty easily. The odd “milk run” bus will also go to Eganville or Killaloe which is about 20 minutes away. A few brave souls have asked the bus driver to drop them right at the driveway to Raven’s Knoll, just like in the movies. Imagine a bus stopping on a country road … you get out, your boots stirring up dust as you sling your pack over your shoulder and begin the walk down the drive. How cool is that?

The property is on highway 60 between the village of Eganville and the hamlets of Golden Lake & Killaloe. The property next door is a children’s riding camp called Frontier Trails. You can spot the Knoll as you approach by the sign that sits atop a small hill, recently a flower bed was put in below the sign. The property is on the same side of the road as the lakes you will be passing.
