What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are a team of only 3 developers, and as such, we actually prefer early access! But the reasons why might surprise you.

There’s no way we can anticipate all the amazing things players will do in our games. We’ve found that player feedback isn’t just good – it’s essential. Players come up with some of the genuinely best ideas on how to make our games even better. To be clear: We will make mistakes. But because we’ve fostered such a good relationship with our community, we’re certain that the absolute best form of Camp Canyonwood will emerge. You’ll find us to be some of the most agile and honest developers out there. If you want to be part of this journey, take the leap and become the counselor Camp Canyonwood needs.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We already have about a year of Early Access updates already planned out ahead. However, the full roadmap, and the order it happens in, will be shaped in enormous part by player feedback. We’re really not kidding about how much we value your ideas and suggestions.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“If We Need To Go Deeper is any indication, Camp Canyonwood will change a lot during Early Access. You can expect at least three more biomes, many more activities, and heaps of additional content. The mystery of the campground will keep unfolding in new directions. And the systems that underlie it all are primed to grow in incredible new ways. If you can’t already tell, we are really, really excited about where the game is going.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Camp Canyonwood is at just the start of its incredible journey. The current version is centered on the core gameplay loop of building up a camp summer-over-summer. It includes the first of the game's four biomes, an array of activities and badges, a variety of natural threats, a fleshed out cast of NPCs, randomized campers, flexible building systems, and substantial content to unlock.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to increase the base price once we leave Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“As always with our games, the community is going to be absolutely irreplaceable. We work with our community so much that the weekly developer streams we’ve been doing for years are often literally us working with our community. If you want to help shape what Camp Canyonwood becomes, join our Discord, visit our dev streams, and make your voice heard!”

About This Game

As the newest counselor at Camp Canyonwood, it’s up to you to successfully manage campers and restore this neglected camp to its former glory by building and modifying the campground! Summer after summer, help new groups of campers learn valuable skills and earn Badges in this charmingly strange camping life sim.

From fishing and archery to rock collecting and stargazing, teach your campers well while discovering their distinct quirks and preferences to ensure they have the best time possible. Protect them from the dangers of the great outdoors such as snakes, bears, and aliens.

A happy camper at summer’s end means more money from their parents for camp improvements, so do your best for the good of Camp Canyonwood!


● Camp activities include fishing, archery, stargazing, bug catching, rock collecting, wood chopping, hiking, exploration, and wildflower collecting. More are planned for the full release.
● Each camper has a unique look and personality. Learn about them and monitor their health and happiness. If they’re unhappy (or missing), their parents may not pay at summer’s end!
● Use earned profits from successful camper management to improve the campground with new decorations and accommodations.
● In addition to a variety of tent and cabin options, there are dozens of collectible items, ranging from practical things like grills for cooking to cosmetic decorations like statues and watch towers.
● Experience the great outdoors, including interactions with fierce predators, chubby racoons, and many different kinds of animals, bugs, flowers, and precious stones.
● Complete donation quests from the camp staff to unlock new items to purchase.
● Nothing strange ever happens at Camp Canyonwood. Especially things like ghosts and UFOs.
● This game requires players to manage their own tasks with a to-do list. As camp counselor, you'll choose the things YOU want to do!

*Please note that Camp Canyonwood currently does not have controller support, which will be added during Early Access.
