We live on a country property along the maitland river. Plenty of room to walk and stretch your legs. Not much shade. Good solid ground with fire pit with plenty of wood to use. We have a 30amp plug just inside our shop. You can hook up to the water but it's a long reach.This is a farming community so depending on the time of year they might be spreading manure on the fields. There is also a large Mennonite community in our area so horse and buggies frequently use the roads. Free dumping station 20 minutes away.

The Danson couple made us feel home, and in the two nights, we shared so many good stories together, did lots of fun stuff, and we felt like we were visiting old friends..!
Honestly it was great times. Thank you the Danson family :)

We had a wonderful experience at the residence. A bonus for us was, the summerlike weather in November. We also enjoyed a fireside evening with the hosts. Thank you for everything!

Nov Camping

We spent 2 days with Danson's. They have a great spot there that is well cared for, high and dry with lots of room for big rigs and trailers. We were there with another couple that also had a big rig and trailer. No problem. Spent some fun time around the fire with the Danson's learning lots about travel, tractors, and good times. Thanks again for the great visit.

A warm reception on a cold night.

Although the temps dipped well below freezing, Danson gave us a warm welcome, and were very accommodating. A great couple, and a beautiful part of Ontario. We hope to come back again

Terry & Wendy are the most gracious hosts. They met us with a smile and had us park down near the fire pit. It was just like being at a campsite.
Out two girls had a great time running around the cut trails. Terry and Wendy spent time around the fire with us with great conversation. The next morning they even took us all on a tractor ride around to a couple of farms. My girls absolutely loved this. In their words - best camping trip ever!

Great stay!

Our ferry arrived late from Manitoulin but the Dansons were so accommodating and stayed up to guide us onto their site. They set up a bonfire for us, unfortunately we got there too late and was rained out. This was the first time we tried boondocking with an RV. It was a great experience. They are friendly and knowledgeable! Communication was pretty rapid. I highly recommend a stay here!

Wonderful hosts

The “Danson”s are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed great conversation.
Prior to our arrival they made great suggestions as to what we could do on our visit here.
The accommodations were very comfortable and included a 30 amp plug, picnic table and fire pit!
We will definitely return when crossing over the border sometime!!

Great Time at Howick Hideaway

We had a great evening at Howick Hideaway. Our hosts were gracious and fun. We spent a few hours swapping stories about RVing and travelling. The site was huge and quiet in a beautiful country setting. We hope we'll meet up with our hosts again!
