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).

Access Road Conditions

Paved road up to 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) and as this has been a very rainy wet summer, 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. Use caution before entering the covered bridge with an RV, the low clearance height is only 10'6"


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.

What a Wonderful Spot & Wonderful People!

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.

Wonderful first time out for us!

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.

Friendly host

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. David

Great host Great Location

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.
