Beautiful place to stay for a couple days! Host greeted us upon arrival and escorted us to a beautiful site with 30amp and water. Easy road in and out! We had great cell service also! Thank you to our host for a great stay!

First time a charm

We had a pleasant stay at Okon Farms which gave us access to the western shore of Lake Michigan and it’s beautiful dunes.

Beautiful place

Very beautiful place. The walking trail is really nice and ends in a patch of trees. That was our favorite part, and it gave our dog a great space to run off leash. Glad we stayed.

Great Hosts

Our hosts met us roadside and guided us to a level grassy spot with an electric hook up. Beautiful sunset that evening framed a peaceful well maintained 90 acre farm. The location is great but what makes this a five star stay are the hosts. We were really made to feel welcome and would look forward to returning if in the area again. Many thanks.

Quiet Overnight

We were met at the road and led out back into a quiet spot overlooking a large field. It was just a quick overnight stop. The stars were amazing!

Nicer than most RV parks.

Beautiful farmland with lush level grass to park on. We really enjoyed our stay. Mike was a very nice man.

Pleasant Stay

Quiet, pleasant stay on grassy field behind host’s house and next to a large, expansive farm field. Water and electric hook-ups were available, though we did not need to use these. Host requested we text in advance of our arrival, and he was waiting for us when we pulled up. He immediately led us to the spot behind his house. We would be very happy to return in the future should our travels bring us back to this part of Michigan. Mike + Diane

Great Host

We enjoyed our stay at Okon Farm. Michael was super helpful and we enjoyed visiting with him. Next time we're in this area we would love to stay with them again.

Great place to stay for visiting the area.

Love it when we find a place to stay that is plenty big enough for our 35ft Fifth Wheel. Easy access in and out. Hosts were helpful when we arrived directing us to spot and best placement. We did have to be a little careful and there where some areas of lower level ground that were not at first obvious. Did have to do some leveling but not much. We had a location with water and 20 amp electric. Full Sun. Stayed 3 nights.

We did not spend much time there as we were checking all the fun things to do. Traverse City, Interlocken, Sleeping Bear National Park.

If we visit this part of Michigan again we would love to return. Loved the cats. "Killer" the older of the two came to visit us each morning for some petting and scratching. Check out the interior of the camper and then left. Big Thank you for having us!

We had a wonderful stay at Okon farm. Mike guided us in when we got there, even though 2 other BW guests arrived at the same time it all went quickly and smoothly. I had a couple of great conversations with him, what a kind and generous host. Thanks so much for being a Boondockers Welcome host.

Beautiful Farm, Thanks for Having us!

This was great, the farm had a nice off-leash run for the dogs. We opted to have water and electric hook up, and we set up on the other side of the barn. Thanks again for having us, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Warm, kind people

Such a friendly welcome and understanding of my stay being cut short due to a puppy emergency. Lovely place and great hospitality. I hope to stay longer the next time I come up this way.

Milky Way

The hosts couldn’t be nicer. We had a beautiful view of the farm and woods. I even saw a fox on the trail. The stars at night are so vast that the Milky Way was clearly visible. We saw Mars, satellites, etc. so clearly it felt as though we could drive to them. We saw most of that area on day trips. Interlaken has a nice gift shop called Eclectic?? And Sutton Bay has a great gift shop called Bear Claw next to a winery. Lots of wineries. Suggest you take a trip all the way to Northport and then down to the Dunes. Cute villages! If you go to the Dunes after hours, you will avoid a huge parking fee. We even went to the Cherry Fest in TC. Don’t hesitate to book your stay at this Farm. We would like to come back someday.

Wonderful farm and very sweet family

We really enjoyed our stay at Okon farm for a few nights while visiting Michigan. The hosts were incredibly friendly and shared some delicious home grown tomatoes. Our girls had fun spotting the farm cats as we enjoyed the quiet area. Very convenient for Michigan's North West area. Would absolutely stay again.

Great stay and experience.

This is such a wonderful place to stay. Easy pull in through right to flat grassy spot with 30 AMP hookup. Great and very thoughtful hosts welcomed us immediately upon arrival. We needed a place for overnight sleep and working remote the next day. Our hotspot was able to pick up good signal and it was so peaceful with the ability to take a walk through a path cut through the farm back to a wooded area. Nice way to take a work break on a sunny fall afternoon. Would 100% stay here again.

Such a delightful time

We had a lovely time at Okon Farm. It was incredible to watch the sunset and sunrise over the farm. So much space, privacy and fresh air. We were greeted with so much hospitality and generosity at Okon Farm. We hope to visit again!

Greatest rainy weekend

Michael and his family were very accommodating. They stayed up late to show us to a spot. It was leveled. Very clean. They have an incredible farm and a huge piece of land behind that they kindly let us walk on behind in our free time. They asked us to take whatever vegetables we find intheir garden we had fresh tomatoes every morning. They were very accommodating. Enjoy the stay with God bless. This country needs more people like Michael and his family

Helpful and generous host

Staying at Okon Farm was wonderful. Michael and his wife were very pleasant and generous, we had some nice conversations and got yummy tomato’s. The 30 amp hookup and delicious well water were a great bonus.

Listen to the crickets.

We had a great stay here close enough to town to run and get some needed things, but far enough to listen to the crickets at night. Michael and his wive are super, when we got there he met use at the camp spot an showed us where to set up to be level. We will be back

Gracious hosts

Gracious hosts,

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this quiet place. Small pleasantries
we did not expect.
We would communicate by text before any interaction.
We will definitely try to stay here again.

Great hosts & beautiful location!

This was our first experience using Boondockers Welcome, and the farm was perfect! Communication with the hosts was clear and thorough before and during our stay. They greeted us at the driveway, showed us where to park, and assisted with hook-up. The location was ideal for accessing all the mountain bike trails in the surrounding area, as well as Lake Michigan. We would stay here again!

Beautiful, calm scenery

The hosts were wonderful and very accommodating. Enjoyed meeting them and talking with them to learn about their farm. Our boys loved the wide open space to run and play. Definitely a favorite.

On the farm

90 acres of beautiful fields of wheat & corn. Plenty of room to let our dogs roam & play. Host was very helpful in ensuring we had all we needed for a pleasant 2 day stay.

For Real - Super Hosts!

07/18/20 – 07/25/20 – There is a real reason why these folks are called “Super Hosts”… They just bend over backwards everywhere to accommodate you. They met us at the street to make sure you get into your space and have what you need. We had great conversations about farming, fishing, RV’ing and families. They are just delightful! They treat you like family. There is just not enough space here to give them the thanks we want to give. We just enjoyed their company immensely. Here at this location, there is the potential that you will see bear, pheasant, coyotes, skunks, raccoons, herrings, deer and geese. Night skies are fantastic and quiet. The location is close to Traverse City (30 miles) and other tourist destinations. Just about any size rig can fit in here with no problem. We are a 42’ 5th wheel with a long bed pickup. Absolutely the easiest back-in I ever had. Out of respect for the hosts beautiful property, if it has rained or you have an especially heavy rig, it’s really important to communicate with the Host and have dry weather for a while to prevent ruts or something worse. Smaller, lighter rigs should not be such a big issue. The hosts have 30A service available for a nominal charge if you need it. Interlochen State Park is 11 miles down the road. The State Park dump is available only to guests. So, for a re-charge night it works great. Check in is at 3pm. Check out is at 1pm. The KOA in Buckley, MI is actually closer but when called, it was $20 (potable water was included) for non-guests. Back to the Hosts…If you have a chance to stay with these folks, you will be happy you did. With the Hosts OK, we would definitely stay here again and again and again and again. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Wonderful property and hosts!

The Okon Farm was a wonderful spot to stay near Traverse City and the Sleeping Bear Dunes! The owners were incredibly accommodating, communicative, and friendly. Greeted us when we pulled up to the property and stayed in touch throughout the stay. Great cell phone signal for remote working and a beautiful farm. Would 100% recommend!

Easy, convenient stay

Great communication and easy access. We texted when we were arriving and our welcoming hosts met us to show us where to park our big rig in the grass near their barn. Had a short socially distanced chat, then enjoyed some down time on the farm. If you’re in the Traverse City area, great spot. Thank you Okon Farm!

Lovely Farm and great hosts!

We had a nice time staying in our camper at the Okon Farm. Our hosts were super friendly and helpful, and the scenery was lovely. We had amazing views of the sunset over the fields, and the full moon across the way. And it's a great location for getting out to other sites and activities in the area.
