This is a rural country setting with many trees. It is about 75 ft down our gravel driveway to the camper port (35' x 16' x 13'6") that one can park under. The area has fresh gravel to park the rig on. We have a small outdoor woodburner along with kindling and wood.
We have an electric line (15A) ran from our garage to the camper port for small power draw items. We have water at our house that could be accessed once per visit by backing the rig about 200' to our garage to fill up tanks.
We have a friendly medium size dog (Heidi) and a cat (Leo).

House Rules

- No running generators after 9pm.

Access Road Conditions

Suggested Local Attractions

There is campground nearby with dump service. Fee was $10.
There is a nice local vineyard not far from our place. This vinyard probably cannot accommodate a rig but only the tow vehicle.
There are other restaurants at the exit also.

Shady Rest stop

The area to park was level and had an electric hookup close by.
My dog and I had a lovely morning walk down a dirt road....saw some of deer. It was a quiet nights sleep.

Great carport for our RV

This was our first stay at a boondocker welcome location. The owners were amazing hosts, they even gave my toddler a package of s’mores stuff to use at the fire pit they provide. The dog and cat were great playmates for our little one. We really appreciate all the hospitality while relaxing at your beautiful country setting.

A great place - nice country road to walk on nearby

The hosts were great. Enjoyed talking to them. My Golden Retriever Melt has a new German Shorthaired Pointer girlfriend. Very quiet place to sleep and relax. Beautiful area and scenic farms along a nearby country road.
