We are located in the center of the Thumb region. Lake Huron & Saginaw Bay surround the Thumb area and are approx 15 minutes away. Many summer festivals dot the shoreline. Bad Axe is 4 miles south and offers a Walmart and several food establishments. Wildlife is abound in our area. You may see deer, wild turkeys, fox and even bald eagles. This area is primarily a farm community, so you will encounter acres of crops as well as wooded landscapes. I have water on site for holding tank fills.

Great Place

We had a peaceful stay and enjoyed meeting Bugman, his wife and super friendly dog Rudy. They were so kind and offered anything we might need. The driveway parking area was level and far enough from the house for privacy. Electricity was kindly offered but we were testing out our battery power and did not need it. We recommend this location and the kind hosts!

Michigan's thumb

Enjoyed a short visit with Bugman when we arrived. The parking spot was a really nice and comfortable home base while we explored a great, new to us, area of Michigan. The big back yard was appreciated by our dog, who had several walks by the woods and wildflower areas.

Exquisit Star Gazing!

Our hosts was very accommodating! Prior to our stay, he set the tone for great communication. He provided a wealth of knowledge concerning the highlights of the area. If you want to see the stars, this is the optimum place to do so. The property was very spacious with horseshoe driveway, making turn arounds easy.

Great hospitality in the Thumb of Michigan

What a delightful couple, Ricker's Roost. From the moment we arrived until this morning when we departed, we were treated like welcomed guest. Easy access in and out as well as a nice relatively level spot. Would highly recommend a visit here for a night or two.
