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.

House Rules

Use common sense in all decisions.

Access Road Conditions

Paved roads for most of the way. Last 1/2 mile is improved gravel which the county puts brine on occasionally. No height restrictions
Send message for best routing in to site. IF YOU ARE OVER 36' LONG PLEASE CALL AHEAD TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE ADEQUATE AREA AVAILABLE FOR YOU TO DO A PULL THROUGH

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

We have about two acres for parking and camping. We are mostly never concerned about space. If you have abnormal space requirements, just contact us and we can discuss it.

Availability

We are usually back in Michigan by the end of May to mow grass and do maintenance and the site is probably available until the end of September.
Anybody with any sense wouldn't want to be here before or after that time period, anyway.......

Location

Scottville, MI, United States of America

Suggested Local Attractions

We can discuss during the nightly campfire if not raining.

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.
