Our home is near Long Island Sound. We are about 1 mile from downtown area (with plenty of restaurant options), the city green, boat harbor and the Metro North train station (about 100 minutes to Grand Central Terminal). Silver Sands State Park is nearby. If our RV is at home, we will move it to make room for yours. So, it may not be a super spacious place to park but we are happy to make it work so you can stay :-) We don't have room for a tow vehicle and there is no parking on our street, but there are nearby neighborhoods without parking restrictions. Water is available but you will need about 50 feet of hose. We have extra garden hose you are welcome to use. Similarly, the 30 amp power will require an extension cord beyond the length that typically comes with the RV. You are welcome in the back yard and to use the outdoor table/chair on our back deck.
Please be careful not to block driveway access for the home behind us. The property line is marked with white spray painted line.
If you have a tow vehicle, PLEASE do not request a stay without confirming that you will be parking your tow vehicle elsewhere in the neighborhood, or do not request a stay with us. Despite being incredibly clear about this in our profile, we consistently get requests to accommodate tow vehicles and due to space limitations and we simply cannot accommodate them.
Two lane residential road to access driveway. Be sure to check your maps as you enter the city. There are some low clearance bridges (one is less than 11 feet) near downtown. Our driveway has some slope, but is definitely manageable with with some leveling blocks.
Downtown Milford and Milford Harbor, Milford green, Silver Sands Park, Metro North train line (north to New Haven, south to more CT coastal towns and NYC).
Very nice folks and nice level parking pad. Nice short walk to a beach. Great place for an overnighter.
Really enjoyed myself at the Rockett Pad, the couple was super friendly and helpful and very hospitable. There was a cute beach at the end of their street that i walked my dog to. The small downtown area was also really nice! It was difficult to turn around in their driveway but if youre patient, it is possible!
I had a nice time staying here in Conecticut, the hosts were very ￼accommodating and comfortable to stay with. I was able to bike down into the town a mile away and get breakfast and also had a great time having diner and talking with them, nice people to become friends with.
The host met us in the driveway to get us situated and gave us some ideas for walking the beach, which is a short distance from their home. We went for a long beach walk, which was beautiful! We enjoyed a quiet night sleep and in the morning the host invited us for coffee on their deck. We sat and chatted for an hour or so; they are super nice people. It’s always great to hear about the adventures of other RVers!
We stayed here in our way to Cape Cod. Rockett_Pad was away enjoying their own RVing. Level parking spot under the trees. Great communication with the host! I will definitely stay here again! Thank you!!!
These hosts were awesome! Approval very fast for last minute request and they couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating! They let my pups have free reign of the back yard and even took us on a nice walk to show us the area!
Thanks for the stay! Close to the beach. We walked the dogs there and went to sleep early. Wish we could have stayed longer! Very restful place to stay!
Very peaceful.Welcoming hosts. Quiet neighborhood. Close to Long Island sound.
They went above and beyond in their hosting duties and truly made me feel at home. This was my first stay through boondockers and I could not have imagined anything better!
Surrounding area is beautiful and lots to see- just a short walk to the beach and state park, and close to lots of great shops. I went on my way with a delicious homemade muffin and wonderful memories of my time there.... so grateful to have crossed paths with these two.
Thank you so much for welcoming me into your home and loving on the pup too! I look forward to hopefully seeing you again!
The host were very attentive from start to finish. Enjoyed our conservation and developing friendship. Wasn't there long but hope to return soon again if welcomed.
We loved our stay at Rockett_Pad. Hosts were very welcoming and gave us some great ideas of how to spend our time in the area. Everything was pretty ideal and can't thank them enough for their hospitality!
Wonderful hosts, very friendly and helpful. We stayed 3 nights to check out the area—easy to get around by walking or biking to the nearby beach, state park, town, playgrounds, etc. Host even treated us to a backyard fire and helped with a minor interior repair. Highly recommend both the hosts and the town. Thanks very much for having us!
We stayed for two nights and the directions and instructions on where to park were good. We enjoyed exploring the area and the weather was beautiful for a walk on the beach to the island. The best part of the stay, was spending time talking and exchanging stories. This is what makes Boondockers Welcome the BEST! We feel like we met new friends, not just a place to stay.
These guys are great! Above and beyond what I would expect from a host. Such a beautiful little town, walking distance to a nice beach and state park. Nice and flat spot next to the house. They were kind enough to offer us water and 15amp to charge a few things. It had rained the previous day or we would have loved to take them up on a fire pit in the backyard. Thanks again! A great Boondockers stay. Highly recommend
Chris & Mary Hellen are wonderful. Super safe, accommodating and genuine people. We would stay with them again if we ever had the chance. Thank you for your warm welcome and gracious hospitality.
Kevin and Julie Ryan
We had a fantastic experience. Very friendly host who provided us with electricity. It’s a nice quiet neighborhood but within a short walk of the beach and restaurants. Highly recommend
The hosts were very responsive and accommodating. Due to unforeseen delays, we arrived after dark and the hosts helped direct us how best to pull our camper into the spot. They offered electric and water setups and were very welcoming and friendly. Very nice area and perfect for what we needed. Would definitely recommend.
These guys are really nice people! They even have a 30amp power hookup and water. About 1/4 mile from a really nice waterfront.
This was our first stay from Boondocker‘s welcome. The Rockett_Pad couple went above and beyond to make us feel welcome! Not only did they help us get set up and settled but then they invited us up on their deck for a drink. They live maybe half a mile walk from a beautiful beach where we really enjoyed our time.
Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Rocket_Pad for your kind hospitality and making our first stay special.🙂
We had a very nice evening relaxing at the Rockett Pad. Wish we could have stayed longer- our hosts were friendly and very helpful in getting us hooked up. We did get a chance to take a short bike to the beach at the end of the block just before sunset (1/2 mile). The weather was perfect for evening stroll through the neighborhood. Wish we could have stayed and chatted more with our host, they were so nice to have us. Boondocker hosts have been extraordinary during this pandemic by hosting nomadic travelers like my wife and I. Thank you both for a pleasant stay, we hope to see you again.
We were so fortunate to be able to stay at the Rockett Pad. Our hosts were both so welcoming, friendly, generous and kind. The town is beautiful and there is a wonderful beach at the end of the street. We had an excellent experience and are very appreciative. Thanks so much for hosting us!
Thank you for the quick one nighter. Your place was easy to find with excellent amenities. Also met your roommate who was very friendly. Thank you for hosting us even though you got to go RVING too!
We absolutely had a wonderful stay at The Rocket Pad! Our hosts were very friendly and also very accommodating to us. We would highly recommend this spot and will be back again, I’m sure!
We are so grateful to our generous hosts for their hookups and kindness, and it was great getting to know you a bit better one of the nights! Thank you for everything!
Simply put - this couple took care of my family like we were rockstars! Not only were they available to answer every query they invited us in and were happy to extend our stay.
There spot is just blocks from the ocean and a ferry ride to Long Island.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
We loved staying at Rockett Pad. Our host was so accommodating and kind! The Rockett Pad is located in a beautiful town with cute shops and places to eat just a short walk away. It is also very close to the beach and it was lovely walking down to the shore while we were there. A cute and cuddly cat who is friendly and playful lives at the Rockett Pad so if you are a cat person you will be delighted. I really enjoyed playing with that little guy! We can't thank our host enough for his kind hospitality. Hope to be able to spend time there when we are back in town. Thanks so much!
