Description

Mostly it will consist of parking in the mowed yard south of the house which is quite wide and allows for easy maneuvering for most people. Depending on the size of your rig and your driving abilities we can park you out away from the house in a remote spot with trees, bushes and critters. You can run your genny out there. Ground is mostly hard sand.
If you desire longer term boondocking in the area, we can point you to a couple of remote (easy access) NF campgrounds that most people miss. Depends on your rig.
We are allowing pets, however if yours barks a lot when left in your rig, or does nasty things, we might ask you to leave.
Otherwise life will be good. It is pretty quiet here and relatively close to most of the attractions.

Use common sense in all decisions.

Great hosts in a great location!

Thank you so much for a safe place to park while we toured around your beautiful area. We arrived and they immediately directed us to an engine show that was being held in the local Park over the weekend, then to the Chamber of Commerce to see what might be of interest to us in the area. They also gave us a must stop for an ice cream, didn’t know we would visit 3 times! Their recommendation of visiting a certain woodcarving museum was just as good or better than they described! They also directed us to the dump upon leaving and the recommended stop for propane on our route north was so easy. The best part of our visit was sitting around the fire every night telling them both our adventures of each day and just getting to know each other. It was like we had met before and the hours flew, before we knew it, it was very late. This couple just wants their guests to have a safe place to park and to enjoy themselves while there. If we’re ever in this area again you can bet we’ll stop by and they know where we are in the winter and would love to get together. A million thanks to them both!

Near the ferry and beaches

Hosts met me at the dock and escorted me to their property. Easy drive and access Friendly couple. It's a short drive to town for anything you might want. Ate breakfast at Brenda's, yummy! Im sure Ludington will be bustling this summer! I took a quick walk on the beach and put my feet in the cool sparkling water! Only stayed one night due to the rain.

Wonderfull experience for 1st time boondockers!!

The Jontwork's were fabulous hosts. This was our first time using a Boondockers Host, and they were very welcoming. We laughed a lot and learned a lot during our 2 days there. Thank you !!

Great folks. Great spot!

Very nice to be hosted by this wonderful couple. They provided us with awesome advice on RVing and fresh veggies! Really helped us out of a jam when we showed up on a holiday weekend with no campground reservations! Our first experience with boondockers welcome was awesome!

Country living

These folks were a joy to visit with. Well traveled and just love to share. Being on the road full time for only 5 months, they had much knowledge and experience to share. So very thoughtful! This is a piece of country living you don't want to miss if you are in the area.

Best Kept Secret

This was my first Boondockers Welcome experience - and I was delighted. Jon had me park anywhere I wanted as it is a huge lot. There are giant trees so lots of shade. I parked next to Gail's fabulous garden. I couldn't believe the place wasn't overrun with Boondockers! It's so close to the ferry in Ludington and the Michigan shoreline is just a few miles away! They are gracious hosts and invited us for tales around the fire pit. We even left with some fresh-picked veggies from her garden!

My only disappointment was that I'd forgotten to take a photo of this perfect location.

Quiet & peaceful site

Jon & Gail have a lush, green, peaceful, partially shady spot beside Gail's vegtable garden perfect for boondocking. They are friendly & knowledgeable - sharing great tips on visiting the local area & the boondocking & RV lifestyle. We so appreciate their hospitality! Kim & Joe

Perfect Host and Spot to Overnight

Jontwork and his wife welcomed us and we had a nice chat the evening we stayed. They pointed out the nearby places of interest. Hosts like these really make for a great Boondocks Welcome experience.

Recommended!

We spent several days at jontwork's back at the start of August and were warmly welcomed. It was good to pick up RVing tips and pointers from folks who've been at it a lot longer than we have! We were parked in a nice, quiet spot at the far end of their yard and saw deer several times down by the creek. Convenient to Ludington and surrounds. Highly recommended! (And they keep the most impeccably maintained vegetable garden!)

Loved this place!

For anyone looking for a beautiful, quiet, serene location, with the added benefit of welcoming hosts, a nightly fire, intelligent conversation and stories of life on the road, this is the place.
Jon and Gail are a treasure! We fully intend to keep in touch with these fine folks.

Peaceful

We stayed for 3 nights and it was great! Farming community and a great location. Our hosts were very friendly and we had a great visit. I hope we have a return next year.

Very friendly, peaceful place

We stayed with Jon and Gail a few nights ago and are happy to recommend their place. It's not too far from Ludington, and very peaceful. We took up their invitation to join them around their patio fire (it was quite cool in the evening), and we enjoyed the fire, conversation, and the howls of coyotes. Gail has a great garden, and Jon gave us lots of local info and sightseeing suggestions.

Friendly Hosts

We met Jon and Gail after searching for boondocking locations in Western MI. We needed just one night layover before resuming our planned travels. Both Jon and Gail are very friendly and easy to talk with. Gail has an amazing garden and Jon is very knowledgeable about the boondocking lifestyle, electronics/communications and other things. We learned a lot that one night. We would highly recommend them as hosts and guests.
