Like old friends!

Meeting people like Wendy and Terry is why we belong to Boondockers! They were great company around our campfire. We swapped travel stories and a couple of brews.
They presented us with a handmade gift, which was very thoughtful.
Hope to see them again!
Arpad and Gabi.

Storms Kept Danson From Making It. We Hope They Can Come Another Time

Danson kept us well informed of their progress on their trip to our house. Unfortunately they were stopped by strong storms within 30 minutes from us and couldn't make it. They were able to boondock at Walmart so that was good.

Canadian friends

Had a good time with the Dansons. We had spent a good bit time in the area they are from especially growing up. Look forward to going to their place in Ontario. There new to them Casita was neat. We had lot in common and had had a lot of fun. They are welcome here anytime.

Wonderful Couple

We enjoyed Terry and Wendy's visit. It was nice to hear their travel experiences and also sharing stories. We learned a lot about the beautiful country of Canada. We hope they stop by us when on future trips.

I miss you already!!! The greatest couple!!! They pulled in and it was a hit right at the start. We had so much in common and I felt that they should have been a brother and a sister. Hope to visit them in Canada. Love you guys

Truly enjoyable!

We had a wonderful experience at the residence. A bonus for us was, the summerlike weather in November. We also enjoyed a fireside evening with the hosts. Thank you for everything!

Nov Camping

We spent 2 days with Danson's. They have a great spot there that is well cared for, high and dry with lots of room for big rigs and trailers. We were there with another couple that also had a big rig and trailer. No problem. Spent some fun time around the fire with the Danson's learning lots about travel, tractors, and good times. Thanks again for the great visit.


November 2020

A warm reception on a cold night.

Although the temps dipped well below freezing, Danson gave us a warm welcome, and were very accommodating. A great couple, and a beautiful part of Ontario. We hope to come back again

Terry & Wendy are the most gracious hosts. They met us with a smile and had us park down near the fire pit. It was just like being at a campsite.
Out two girls had a great time running around the cut trails. Terry and Wendy spent time around the fire with us with great conversation. The next morning they even took us all on a tractor ride around to a couple of farms. My girls absolutely loved this. In their words - best camping trip ever!

Great stay!

Our ferry arrived late from Manitoulin but the Dansons were so accommodating and stayed up to guide us onto their site. They set up a bonfire for us, unfortunately we got there too late and was rained out. This was the first time we tried boondocking with an RV. It was a great experience. They are friendly and knowledgeable! Communication was pretty rapid. I highly recommend a stay here!

Friendly Country Retreat

Hope to visit again soon or they are welcome to our neck of the woods too!

Wonderful hosts

The “Danson”s are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed great conversation.
Prior to our arrival they made great suggestions as to what we could do on our visit here.
The accommodations were very comfortable and included a 30 amp plug, picnic table and fire pit!
We will definitely return when crossing over the border sometime!!

Great Time at Howick Hideaway

We had a great evening at Howick Hideaway. Our hosts were gracious and fun. We spent a few hours swapping stories about RVing and travelling. The site was huge and quiet in a beautiful country setting. We hope we'll meet up with our hosts again!
