We are located on the south shore of Rice Lake about 15 minutes north of Highway 401 at Cobourg. We have a rural property which is on the edge of a small village. A gravel driveway leads off the paved road up to our house, the parking spots are at the start of the driveway. The boondocking parking spots are on the grass on either side of the gravel driveway just off the paved road and situated in front of a large pond. There is an electrical outlet near the parking area that can be used for light electrical loads (no A/C units or electrical heaters).
The county road to our property is a paved road, you then turn onto our gravel driveway. You will have to back your RV into our driveway and then onto the grass on either side of the gravel. We prefer that you park your rig on the east side of the driveway (ground is firmer on the east side) especially after rainy weather as the grassy ground can be soft, please discuss with us where to place your RV before parking it. When the grass area is too soft, you can place your RV along one side of the driveway to avoid the soft grass. The RV boondocking space is beside our gravel driveway just off the paved road, note that our house is located a further 300' up the driveway and there is a vehicle height restriction of 10'-6" for vehicles going all the way up to our house.
Generally we are home and boondocking is available all thru the warmer months of the year. Once the snow is on the ground, the "overnight parking" spots become snowbanks on either side of the driveway and the parking is not available.

We spent the last night of our trip at there place. They have a very pretty property, perfect for our kids to strech!
We were warmly welcomed, thanks a lot!
Want to thank the hosts for a quiet and peaceful location plus the use of electrical was great. Look forward to hosting in return. Thanks again.
Thank you for hosting us at your wonderful location. The covered bridge was such a treat. Thanks also for informative and enjoyable conversation. Hope to return some time. Blaine and Brenda
What a pretty location...so peaceful. Had a nice chat with our hosts before spending a peaceful night by the covered bridge! Would definitely stay again! Thanks IronwoodTerry!
Our second rime we ever used Boondockers Welcome and it was an awesome experience. A beautiful setting and amazing hosts, we highly recommend these hosts for a visit or as guests. A beautiful lake, a covered bridge, peaceful pond. Artesian well water in the village of Harwood.
This was our first time out with the MH and as boondockers. Terry and his wife made us feel very welcome, on a truly beautiful property. I would recommend them whole hartedly.
Such a peaceful and beautiful place to stay for our one night boondocking. The hosts was nice and charming :)
We stayed one night on Terry's property near the beautiful covered bridge. He visited us for awhile in our RV and we swapped travel stories.
Terry and his dear wife are great hosts with a nice location for a relaxing place to be for anyone that is passing through or doing some fishing. It was also wonderful to get in a game of golf on my trip with Terry.
That made the detour well worthwhile. I highly recommend them a very good B/D host.
