Awesome stay, very private site, great people


September 2019

Quiet area

I want to thank the host for allowing me the two night stay. It is quiet and in a paved parking lot. I enjoyed my stay.


August 2019

Nice big lot

Host was very nice. Quite busy- but he still made time to say hi.

The parking lot was definitely big enough to turn around.

Great spot!

We had a great conversation with our host and enjoyed our visit to the National Park. Thank you!

Sweet People and Great Location

No problem getting level, and it is quiet and peaceful. It is also very conveniently located to all the Lake Erie activities. The hosts came out to meet us a couple of hours after we arrived, and we spent a nice hour or so visiting with them; drinking iced tea and munching on grapes and cheese. We definitely recommend staying here if you are stopping over in this area to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

Rock Hall close by!

Turkeys wandered through. Sky opened up over night no problems with water accumulation. Perfect spot to hang out while spending day st Rock Hall of Fame.

Great Place in Lorain

Host was very accommodating. He met us at the back 40 which was almost that large.There is a large parking area and can accommodate several large RVs. We had the place all to our selves and it was very quiet. We actually stayed an extra day and they were very receptive to that. I would recommend this place to anyone. Also about 30 minutes from down town Cleveland and 45 minutes from Cuyahoga Naptional park, a must see if you come through here.

So pleasant!!

Our host was so pleasant! The space was more then perfect for our trailer, our Grand Cherokee and the big uhaul. He came out to greet us when we were a little confused about where we were supposed to go (lots of driving that day!). We recommend this boondocker host!

We enjoyed our stay Gary. Though there are no hook-ups, we were able to pull through with our towed vehicle. A very nice quiet spot along the way.


August 2017

Great host, easy access, great spot!

We really enjoyed talking to g1g about his life and town. Couldn't be easier to park – had a really fun time there! Highly recommend.

Great place to boondock

G1g is a super place to stay. They have a huge parking area next to a wooded area. They are very busy couple but had time to chat.


March 2017

Great hosts, super convenient and huge location!

G1G were amazing hosts. They were very accommodating, and the location was only two miles away from the interstate. The location is a very large parking area, with tons of room for parking and turning around. We had fun seeing their rig, as well as hearing about all of the things that Gary and his wife have done in their lives, and the fun skills they are eager to share! If you are in the area, this is an excellent place to stay!! Good luck with your quest for retirement!!
