Description

Open from May 30 til Oct 12th. . We are located on a main route. Route 25. You can follow route 25 from new Hampshire and go to the end and be on Congress street in Portland,Maine. Hospitals are in Portland,,Maine, North Conway, New Hampshire and Biddeford Maine, Bridgton,Maine. All within 30 miles of our place. Malls are 30 miles as well as beaches and mountains. Many local places to go swimming. Long Pond in Cornish is free and a great place as it has a shallow water for a long distance for kids safety. Plenty of sites to see. Cathredral Pines is a great free place in North Conway,New Hampshire. You can go to Portland,maine and take the mailboat out for $18 00 each for seniors. It goes out for 3 hours every day in morning and afternoon. Call first because of Virus. You get to get off on one island for half an hour for coffee. Its awesome way to spend the day in Portland. I love D’imillo's floating resturant right down the street from the mail boat access> It's actually a sea tanker rehabbed into a restaurant. I love going on the top deck and watch all the boats and cruise ships coming and going. You can sit and eat there! So much to see in Maine and New Hampshire! I can't put it all in here! Bay Haven here in Town has awesome Seafood!

Or you can go to our reopened campground in Cornish and dump for a fee.

Great People Great Place

We had a lovely stay. The host is very kind and generous. You can't go wrong staying here. Easy in and out. Many places to go to using this as base camp. She has lots of recommendations too. We would definitely stay again.

A Unique Experience

Our hosts are wonderful friendly and generous folks in a unique setting. Phyl has something for everyone,and it's clear that her main interest is helping others.
There's plenty of room in the level grassy field, with sun and shade. A bit of traffic noise during the day,but quieter in the evening.We didn't get to experience the fire pit,but look forward to it next visit. We did try the Bay Haven restaurant,and the food was good.
If fancy and new is your style,this isn't the place,but if spending time with some really nice people,no frills,then this will be a unique,fun experience.

Giving Loving Couple Creating Community

Had such a wonderful time. Phyl and her husband have a beautiful property and a small flea market loaded with antiques, collectables and furniture. It appears that everything she takes in from the flea market and any donations from boondockers goes directly back into helping the local community and the nomad community. Wonderful above ground campfire! Highly recommend this place, even the drive is a blessing all the way up! Thank you so much for the wonderful stay!

Awesome Place

Nestled in a former garden field on the Ossipee Trail near the border of NH, Packratphyl and her husband have created a perfect place for boondockers to stay. Easy in, easy out, I brought a 42’ 5th wheel onto the plush green grass with no problem at all. Phyl, Hosts were very warm and welcoming folks. Will definitely stay here again!

Perfect Maine Respite

This was the perfect Maine retreat. Our host was amazingly generous with their space and time. We have rarely felt more welcome. As a bonus, this was such an easy location to pull into and out of! This was a charming town, and a brilliant base camp from which to visit Portland, Cape Elizabeth, Ogunquit/Wells, and similar points of interest. We look forward to meeting again in the future!

Good Location

We were greated by our host and chatted a bit. Good tips on area eats and enjoyed one she mentioned. We were out sightseeing the days there and loved the Mailboat Run ferry that she told us about. Able to talk with her husband also before we left. Such a nice couple and safe area to use as a base .

Awesome hosts

I had a really sweet 3 night stay here in Maine and the hosts were awesome. Nice field to park in and a beautiful river about a hundred yards through the woods behind the field. I hope I get a chance to come again...

Comfy parking

Great spot. Quiet and peaceful. Our hosts welcomed us and got us parked. We used our stop to see. Portland, the white mountains, the coast to York and lake winnipesaukee. We were centrally located between them all! A Big thank you to our hosts for allowing us to spend an extra day. They offered us to stay longer if we had liked! THANKS

Wonderful hosts

Friendly hosts with 2 small adorable dogs. Out here you will find a large field and serenity. The road is close by but it is heaven. On their recommendation we did the mailboat tour out of Portland. So worth it.

Nice stay!

We had a nice, comfortable stay with packratphyl. Parking is in a field with trees forming a barrier between it and the highway reducing the road noise. Spots are level and easy to maneuver around. We were able to leave our tow car hooked to the motorhome as the turnaround area was large enough to manage. Due to rain we didn't have the chance to socialize with packratphyl as much as we would have liked to but did enjoy the brief conversation we had with them.

Special park and neat couple

We enjoyed our brief stay with a neat couple full of life with challenging future plans for their property at a age when most are ready step back and take it easy. It was great to share lunch and to talk about their future travels with their LazyDaze motorhome. We would definitely stay with P and T if we are in the area again.
