80 acres of mixed pasture and forest, on either side of a creek ravine, in a rural/agricultural area. This is the land that was no good for farming, but is great for nature lovers. Lots of birds & wildflowers. Easy walking around the property; ~ 10 minutes from an extensive trail/boardwalk system, and 25 minutes to the hundreds of km of trails in Red Deer's urban park system.
Park in our graveled yard, use the fire pit, plug in, hook up a hose, and use us as a base of operations for your central Alberta explorations.
We speak English, French, & Polish. Maybe a little bit of bad Spanish, too.
We have cats, horses, and sometimes pasture cattle here. Pets are welcome, but must be under control. (Don't chase the domestic or wild critters!) Travelling with a horse? You are welcome to pasture it here too.
Generators off by 10 p.m.
Smoking? Only inside your unit, please.
Take your garbage with you.
Generally, a 3 day (max.) stay.
2 miles/3 km on good gravel off of Hwy 11.
Have to do a tight (hairpin) U-turnaround if parking in our yard, OR (if "boondocking" (i.e. not in our yard) drive a few hundred metres (yards) on fairly smooth pasture to be by yourself in a meadow surrounded by trees. No problem most of the time, but might be a bad idea after a lot of rain!
We have a 25' 5th wheel & can do the turnaround -- bigger might have difficulty.
Lots of room to park next to the RV.
We are always here except when we're not.
Call and confirm: if we agree that you can come, we will be sure to be here for you.
