You can park on one side of my paved driveway where I usually park my RV. It is a level parking space and can be supplied with electric service. Fresh water is also available to refill your tanks. This is a 6- acre wooded lot with a large pond so you will not be close to the neighbors. Pets are welcome if you keep them from running loose. Please clean up after them, or make sure they do their business in the woods - which are plentiful! Please contact me for more information.

Access Road Conditions

Easy access from Ohio Turnpike, Interstates 80, 90, 71 and 480. All paved roads and paved, level driveway. Entrance to drive has a drainage ditch under the driveway, so it is important to stay on the pavement. Driveway is wide (12 feet) so this should not be a problem. In the summer, engineering interns live at the house, so their cars will be in the driveway overnight, so they will need to know your in/out times if it is during commuting hours so they can clear your path.


You are welcome to camp even if I am not home (others will represent me), so just send me a message and we can arrange to welcome you. Winters in Ohio are probably not the best for camping, but if you need a spot and the roads aren't bad, you are welcome to try.

REST OF THE FINE PRINT: Pets on leash only, as we have two indoor/outdoor and 3 outdoor cats. Electricity is only 20 AMP, but I have been able to run my RV air conditioner on that. You may run your generator between 9 AM and 10 PM.
Our wi-fi is password-protected and I can give you the password when you arrive. If you have a really strong booster you might be able to receive the signal, so we can try. Verizon signal is good. Don't know about others.

Wonderful host!

Forsythia Forrest was a great host with a phenomenal spot for boondocking. She was very pleasant and helped with information around town. I was only able to stay 1 night bc of my travel plans but wish I could of stayed longer. I definitely recommend!

Great spot!

ForsythiaForest offered us a place to stay while visiting the Cleveland area. Great spot in the woods but not too far from the city. Felt very safe there. The host is very friendly and accommodating too. We enjoyed chatting about our shared RV passion and experiences. &lt;emoji&gt;

Wonderful Stay!

ForstythiaForest is an amazing host with a great property away from it all, but still close enough to drive to it if you want. We have a big rig so she allowed us to park on the grass in her yard, next to her pond. She even let us run an extension cord out to our rig so we could plug in. The driveway has a tight turn in but we are newbies and managed it just fine. We would gladly stay here again! Thank you for your hospitality!

Interesting and generous

Our family stayed with ForsythiaForest while visiting Cleveland and had a lovely time. She was so kind and thoughtful, has a beautiful property that felt like a touch of camping right near the city, and was a fun person to talk to about life and travels. We happily recommend her as a host to others and are glad we had the chance to pass through here on our trip. Thank you, Forsythia Forest!

A nice stay.

Our host was welcoming and most obliging even though she was busy. We enjoyed our stay and our chats. Close enough to Cleveland.

Bull Frogs

We stayed 2 nights and it was very peaceful. Bull Frogs croaking.. and woke to Cicadas emerging and flying about. Our host was having a new slab poured for her RV, so was busy with that. A very nice quirt spot to rest up. Very nice host. Thanks, Ty & Maggie

Nice stay in Cleveland area.

Had a 1 night stay with ForsythiaForest. It was a great location as a gateway into Cleveland. We enjoyed getting to know Her. She had plenty of room for us in her driveway.

Rocket Science!

We stayed four days with this super smart, hilarious, thoughtful and generous host. We are self-sufficient with power and water, so we had a beautiful spot on the front lawn near the pond, and had awesome sunlight streaming down on our solar panels. It takes about 40 min to drive to downtown Cleveland, and there was a great local market with fresh fruit and veg about a mile up the road. Thanks so much ForsythiaForest - we had a great time sharing stories and wine!!

Great Host

I would say to anyone considering staying with this member or having this member as a guest, they will be pleasently supprised. She was a great host and I look forward to staying with her in the future if I need a place to stay in this area again. Nice setting in the country and very quite. I offer my thanks to her for being a great host. I am a new member and hope that she is an example of what I can expect from boondockers.

Fantastic woman!

We stayed at Valerie's for five days. After only being there for a few hours we were like old friends. She makes you feel at home and she is very down to earth. Valerie put us at ease and gave us everything we needed and more. Valerie was also great company and a great guide to the attractions of the area. The place is beautiful. The area is sourranded by nature, with many birds and deer. We spent a night sitting at a bonfire making smores. thank you Valerie from your Italian friends!
