Events

We host many events at Raven's Knoll. Please see the events list in the menu above. But, even during most events we have lots of room to hold multiple small events, and regular campers. So no matter how full it looks on the calendar, please feel free to reach out and see how we can help you with your camping trip or group event.

For group events we have additional rental items available, like large tents to cover in case of rain or too much sun, golf carts, fire pits, food services ( through our Food truck ), sound equipment, and more. Please ask us for details.

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.

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.

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, the Raven Stage, a fry truck ( The YAG – Ye Aulde Grubbe ), 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 are still developing and adding to 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.

Myst

Myst

Registration

From the Spring 2010 opening of Raven’s Knoll Myst has welcomed the opportunity to help make Raven's Knoll barrier-free; that no matter the mobility, all should be able to enjoy the warmth, energy, and freedom of this amazing place and the people in attendance. This has led to her considering The Knoll a second home!

Myst follows an eclectic Pagan path, though a Witch at heart, she welcomes the opportunity to learn about all Pagan paths, as well as honoring her Native Ancestors and Guides. She has trained with, and is a member of, Feathers Academy of Clairvoyants and Holistic Therapies, Norwich, UK. As a Clairvoyant/Psychic Medium, she has helped with Spirit Rescue and with things that "go bump in the night"! Myst has also enjoyed sharing the techniques for Grounding & Protecting, working with our Chakras, using pendulums, and connecting with Spirit and Spirit Guides. Myst has been instrumental in the development and promotion of "after-care" for esoteric rituals; demonstrating a genuine commitment to the spiritual well-being of those attending events at Raven's Knoll.
