We live on scenic County Road 2 in South Dundas, just south of Highway 401. It's about an hour to Ottawa. Be aware that GPS seems to occasionally point our guests in the wrong direction. We are just West of Morrisburg and East of Iroquois, not West of Brockville. Do not get off the 401 in Brockville! Please confirm directions before arrival.
Water to fill your tank may be available on site. There are free dump stations close by.
We moved in May 2021 so all reviews before that are for our old location.
Access is good, we are on a main highway. It can be busy on weekends as we live on a scenic route so care must be taken when backing in or out.
Lots of room for tow vehicle alongside your trailer.

Beautiful area, definitely take Highway 2/Thousand Island Parkway instead of 401 for amazing scenery. Easy to find an easy to park. They were able to accommodate us on short notice. We very much appreciate the ability to stay there. Would recommend.
It was dry and sunny and i was able to stroll down to the river. Spent a lovely evening outside, round the fire with my hosts. A kind Cougar manoeuvred my rig so it pointed out ready for take off. A great experience.
Our Hosts were welcoming and enjoyable! Thanks for great conversation and a wonderful view!
If you enjoy watching freighters you will love watching them go through the locks, located a few miles away.
Highly recommend stay!
I would definitely recommend this retreat. Thumbs up!
This was our first stay with Boondockers Welcome and it set the bar high. Our host were wonderful and the location was amazing!! Looking forward to returning soon 💗
Perfect spot, right on the St. Laurence. Host turned out to be relayed to a great friend of ours. Wonderful.
This is a great spot overlooking the Saint Lawrence River. Parking was more than adequate for our rig. Enjoyed the locks, and the beach during our visit.
Our first boondocking of 2021 and since the beginning of Covid could not have been more pleasant. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly. Their property is easy to set up in with our 27 foot rig and had a wonderful view of the St. Lawrence River complete with fishing ospreys!
Spent a lovely evening on our hosts’ deck chatting and watching the River.
Riverview Retreat is an amazing place to spend a night! Although we had a bit of a problem locating, the host was available by phone to assist with exact directions and she met us upon arrival. The parking was easy and level. Although we didn’t require electricity, it was offered. Enjoyed our morning coffee outside watching flocks of geese landing on the water. Peaceful. Took the host’s advice and drove the scenic parkway right into Quebec and loved it. Thanks for hosting and we hope to see you in the future. John and Carin Hill
Very peaceful place to unwind after a day of travel. Stunning view of the St Lawrence River.
The lawn was cut perfectly and a beautiful little pond with lots of frogs jumping. Never got to meet the hosts but talked to them on the phone. They sounded like great people.
Nices hosts and nice set up! Thanks a lot, we really appreciated it!
After a day of trial-and-error travelling, it was so great to find such welcoming hosts with such a lovely location. We truly rested well. Thank you again.
S & G's beautiful property backs right onto the river, and is complete with an active osprey nest! We very much enjoyed our after dinner visit on their expansive back deck, watching the geese and boats and sharing friendly conversation.
Very happy that we spent our first evening of our trip with S & G; may we meet again!
Thanks to Shady Shekdrick for the wonderful 3 night stay. Appreciated having access to hydro so we could stay warm at night.
An ideal location to explore....shop and relax. We had a couple of super visits with S and G....
A return visit for sure.
We enjoyed staying at this nice quiet spot that was perfectly level too ! We didn’t get to chat with the hosts but they were very conscientious about making sure we were settled in ok.
Very hospitable and friendly hosts. Very convenient location to Embrun. There is a place to dump only a few minutes down the road.
Really enjoyed our stay!

Our first time out was a fantastic experience. These folks made us feel welcome as soon as we landed. Beautiful, peaceful country location with great view of the night sky. Highly recommend this location for anyone looking for a quiet, country escape.
