No access to main trail other than 2km of asphalt road , then 1km of dirt road. The supposed access trail was basically impassible. 2.7k took almost 2hrs we had to break trail and had to literally walk in front to figure out which way to go because of lack of signs. Got stuck numerous times because of not knowing...

I stayed at South Wind 2/3 years ago and the stay was okay. The place changed owners last year and it's been an awesome place to hang out with friends who ATV, Jeep, motorcycle, dirtbike, and snowmobile. Ray (the new owner) has set up awesome offroading trails at the back half of the property. There's a pressure washing station and...

After reading the other reviews on this site for the Southwind, I have to wonder if the ownership has changed. I booked a room at this motel 5 days prior to my arrival, on the understanding that I wasn't certain as to how many nights I would be staying. The female owner, name unknown, suggested booking 2 nights and that...

My husband and I have been going to this campground every year for the past five years and it has never let us down. We love it here because we know that we will always be treated wonderful by the owners. They are very accommodating and the grounds are very well maintained. The ONLY negative thing is the ATV washing...

We stayed at South Wind on the Friday of the August long weekend 2013 and it was the first stop for us that weekend. It should have been the only stop. Pat and Dave were some of the most accommodating hosts I've ever had the privilege of meeting. We got there late so it was dark and wet so we...

We stayed here for 2 nights in order to go snowmobiling. What a pleasant spot. The rooms were Spotless!! I am a hard person please in this area, I am a clean freak and this met my standards.

“I didn't have the opportunity or desire to see what my room was like, however the "office" contains the breakfast counter, and is not an inviting place. Messy, disorganized, seedy. Very dated.”
