Choices: We have two properties in the area. One is our home with services available, another is a mostly undeveloped 70 acre site with no services. Both sites are generally wooded but have clearings for RV use. Distance between the two sites is about 25km / 16mi / 20 min drive. Paved road access to both. Parking areas vary from native grass to crushed gravel. Pets only after discussion. Non-smokers preferred. Smokers must observe fire safety and dispose of butts in garbage - no butts on the ground please! Generators not likely needed as we may be able to supply power. Dump stations available with seasonal availability to both north and south of our locations - about 15 min drive.

House Rules

No littering please. Poop n Scoop. No gensets after 9pm.

Access Road Conditions

Paved road to both locations. Home site = no restrictions. Undeveloped site = pay attention to overhanging trees, fully navigable with judicious use of full road width; little traffic, so not a problem.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

With the rig. No need to un-hitch.


All year, but check with us first as we may be away. Winter (i.e. snow on the ground) is possible at the home location, but not at the undeveloped location (unless you REALLY like shovelling!)


Pakenham, ON, Canada

Suggested Local Attractions

45 min drive to Canada's Capital, Ottawa.
Depending on the season, golf, skiing, sugar bush, swimming, watersports, hiking all under 20 mins drive.

Great Hosts

We stayed on their property Sept. 2017. Excellent hosts providing many recommendations for sight-seeing in Ottawa. Parking is in two driveways, backing in from the road is a bit of a challenge for our 60 ft truck and trailer, but do able. Thanks to John and Jan

Good place to stay

We had a good time staying 2 nights (Sept.12-13) at this location. Hosts were friendly and most generous supplying us with helpful information on the area and use of their gazebo! We highly recommend staying at this safe place.

Quiet place to stay

We enjoyed a 2 night stay at John and Jan's with 2 friends in their own rigs. Space was tight for the 3 of us but John was very helpful getting us in. We were very happy with the hospitality and enjoyed an evening of getting to know them. The use of the screened in gazebo was a nice meeting place for our group. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Big thanks

We were very impressed with the Boondocking at John and Jan's place. It was quiet and enjoyable for the time we spent there. We had car problems and are very thankful for John's help driving with Joe to town to have the problem resolved. This is one great place to stay. Thanking you very much for a great time at your place and we wish you all the best for the new place you are developing. Gabi and Joe
