This house/Boondockers location is located 18 miles south of Columbus Ohio in a little farm town. Columbus is a great place for foodies and microbreweries, Clippers baseball, Ohio State university, Blue Jacket hockey, Nation Wide arena, Ohio State fairgrounds. There is a small lake south of me that has a nice 4 mile hiking path - Hargus Lake.
Thirty miles east is the Hocking Hills, more nice hiking. Twenty miles west is Deer Creek state park which has a beach and lake. The area is good for road biking.

Just a block north of the host site is an elementary school and a park with a walking track.

House Rules

No running of generators after 9 pm.

Access Road Conditions

The RV boon docking area is off of a main road in a small farm town two miles off of a state route. My only concern is the transition from the main road into my driveway, some trailers drag. I personally had a 40 foot fifth wheel that I pulled in and out.

Reasonable backing skills would be necessary, either backing in from the street or backing out. There is no room to turn big rigs around on the property. Smaller rigs will have no problem turning around or maneuvering.

There are many roads that lead you to Ashville Ohio. The two main roads coming off of State Route 23 into Ashville are St. Route 752 and St. Route 316... both of these routes have height restrictions due to a train overpass. 13’6” for Rt 316 and 13’9” for Rt 752.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

There is a gravel lot behind my garage that has room to park both an RV and a tow vehicle together.

Pleasant small town

I had a very pleasant stay. It was quiet and behind a barn so you have some privacy. The host was very courteous.

Great stay !

We stayed a couple of nights at Don's place and it was a perfect respite for some weary travelers. He had a nice level, shady spot in a beautiful area. We enjoyed visiting and sharing stories :) He treated us to some Ohio sweet corn that was DELicious !! Enjoy the shrimp boil, Don.

Awesome Private Spot

Don was very nice and extremely accommodating when we had to rearrange his setup to reach the hookups. He was a very gracious host who helped us set up and gave lots of recommendations for the area. The spot was very secluded and private. Would love to stay here again if in the area.

Peaceful Rest Stop

This is such a nice, secluded location off the highway! It was very easy to get to and the directions given by the host made it a breeze to find the spot, even though they weren't at the property when we arrived. The area has a nice, almost completely flat gravel pad to park on. There was even a picnic table and fire pit. We were able to hook up to the electric, which was a nice perk. The space feels very private behind the barn and looking out on the beautiful backyard and trees beyond. It seems to be a very quiet, peaceful little town. There is a train that goes by that you hear every now and then, but it's not too loud and didn't disturb us from a much needed night of sleep. We didn't need anything but rest on the way to our next destination, so I can't say much about the town/activities, but the host did let us know there is a school and park nearby to stretch our legs if needed, which was very considerate and great to know. We would definitely stop here again if we are in the area in the future! Thank you!

Nice Quiet Overnight

Arrived late after bucking the strong winds all day and then having a unit breakdown at a nearby fueling station. DonV was terrific! He text with us and made sure we had good direction and care. The campsite was immaculate and quiet behind a large shed giving us complete privacy. We will return!

Great stay! Quiet, large yard, private and solid gravel area for our big rig. Plenty of room to maneuver in grass. 50amp and water available.

Just great!

Great space

Very private space in residential area. A little tricky to get into but great space. Within walking distance to town center. Highly recommended.

Didn't get to met our host, but highly recommend this flat gravel spot. Well away from the street and we could hear trains off in the distance. Nice place to stay after a long drive.

Quiet and tucked away

We enjoyed the large, level parking area toward the back of his property. Don had a water hose waiting for us which was a nice addition to the quiet, peaceful setting. We would recommend it.
