Description

Located in S. E. Michigan in the country on 5 acres with lots of trees but not far from highways and communities with decent shopping. The last 3/4 mile to our house is a private dirt road. It is muddy when wet, often has potholes, and some low overhanging tree branches, but they can be avoided. Pull through gravel driveway with two 11' x 40' level parking areas that will easily accommodate a 45 foot RV with a totter or toad if it has a tight enough turning radius. Can accommodate up to four RVs, including ours, but not on flat, level ground with easy access to electric hookups. Guest site has "50/30/20A" RV electrical hookup with breakers. Fresh water available. Dump would be by way of a 'blueboy' only. Sites have tall trees close to them along their south edge, so nice shade but probably won’t be able to lock on to a satellite.

House Rules

We are not smokers and would prefer that people not smoke, but it’s OK as long as it’s not near our house and cigarette butts do not end up on the ground. It's a quiet neighborhood after dark. Generators are fine but no outside entertainment or other noise that might disturb our neighbors. Pets welcome. Dogs welcome and off-leash is OK if they are trained as the property is not fenced. We have a LOT of wildlife that visits our property and do not want it harassed or your pet to have a bad encounter.

Access Road Conditions

We are 4 to 12 miles from four major highway exits. All routes are paved except the last 3/4 mile which is a private dirt road. The dirt road conditions vary with weather and time-of-year and can be muddy and have some potholes. The road often has some low overhanging tree branches but they can be avoided. We try to keep them trimmed up but they are not on our property, so we do not have direct control of the conditions.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

On site, in front or behind rig or elsewhere.

Availability

Our boondocking site is generally available from May through October except when we attend local RV rallies. The pull-through driveways are not plowed in the winter so the parking sites are inaccessible during the snowy season. If we are home during the winter, guests are welcome as long as we are home and the ground is clear of snow.
