Description

I own a 22 acre bush property with a few trails on it. For larger units parking is near my house. For truck mounted units and tent trailers parking is more isolated. Its a quiet area with cottages on the other side of the road. It is well treed and very private. There is no access to water. I do not have site sewer hook up, just a dump site connected to my septic system. Technically, I can only accommodate three units at a time with water and hydro. Any other will need to be fully independent. I also have treed areas for those who want to pitch a tent and areas for anyone who want to park overnight.

Hydro Electric hook-up is free one overnight stay when arriving late, other than a $10.00 a day charge will apply for guest without AC and $15.00 a day for rigs with AC.

House Rules

1/ No smoking in grass or wooded areas. Dispose of butts safely, leave none lying around.

2/ Other than a sociable drink in your camper or around the fire, NO drugs or alcohol allowed anywhere on or off the property. And please, no profanity or offensive language during your stay.

3/ Keep the noise and chatter down after 11 pm.

4/ Except for emergencies, No running loud generator after 11 pm.

5/ Keep your pets on a leash or tied up at all times.

6/ Do not let your children or pets wonder off on their own or onto the neighbor's property. No trespassing on neighbor's lands.

7/ Because of pedestrians and children, ATV's and all vehicles must Drive slowly with caution on the dirt road. Being a private road, Use at your own risk. Driving slow also keeps the dust down.

8/ Dispose of garbage in bins or designated area.

Access Road Conditions

We are on a dirt road 1/4 mile in off the paved Hyway. The Dirt Road is narrow and a bit winding. In early spring its quite soft.
Do not follow your GPS, it will direct you to enter onto Anderson Road (north of Tory Hill)- that will end in a trail. Use Lee's road just south of Tory Hill and turn left then left again onto Lake Lorraine Road 1251 on left. Depending on changing situations, you may be asked to drive pass the gates and then back in.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Anywhere on the property, or stay attached depending on length.

Because of the limited turning radius, 35 feet is the maximum including the tow vehicle. Thus, we can accommodate one or two 35 foot RV or 25 foot Fifth Wheel plus vehicle. Tow behinds up to 25 feet will be no problem.

A nice stay at Back woods

If you want to get away from the noise of the city, this is the place to stay! Our hosts were very welcoming and we were able to have a nice chat during this short one-night stay.
