Hello from Marc and Judy! We are lifelong New Englanders. New to RV camping and new to boondocking.
Marc is a carpenter and a tree removal and firewood guy. Judy is a retired teacher.
We have two dogs. An elderly chocolate lab and a young rescue shepherd mix. We don’t travel with them.
We are so new to this we have only been using truck stops and travel plazas.
We live in East Granby, CT. We are right on the Farmington Valley Rail to Trail bike path - part of the East Coast Greenway. Bring your bikes!

Although our hosts were away when we arrived, they had their nephew meet us and get us settled. They have left us an information sheet with the details of Turkey Hill and local attractions. A beautiful place in Connecticut that we have not explored. Hope to meet our hosts on the road in the future.
I didn't get to meet Mark and Judy because they are on their own adventures but they were very helpful and easy to contact. I had a great time sharing a few drinks with their family!
Good time sharing stories of adventures and plans for upcoming trips.
Nice interesting hosts and friends. Quiet and peaceful overnight.
These guys were so accommodating! They have a great little place with 20amp electricity if you need it and you may even catch them on a night they have a fire going in the fire pit. I enjoyed visiting them and their family around that one night.
They also have a really neat bicycle path that runs beside their house that goes a long way! If you have time and are a bicyclist, you will love it.
Thank you so much for all of your hospitality and for giving us a great, safe place to stay!
One of the family.. that’s exactly how I felt on my Saturday night overnight stay at Turkey Hill with Marc and Judy ..I was invited to a barbecue right after they set me up with electricity and I met a bunch of great people and we did some interesting things… One of Marc’s friends came over and dug a trench with a bobcat to lay some wire for a 30 amp switch for their Winnebago van… everyone pitched in as best they could and had a lovely dinner and I went to bed early because I was very tired and left before everybody got up.. I had a great stay with some great people… Thanks so much again
We had a great evening enjoying a campfire with our hosts and sharing stories and listening to music. We stayed two nights and really enjoyed the area, but the best part was our kind hosts!
We had the most incredible experience at Turkey Hills. Marc and Judy have a magnetic personality and a home where people come for miles to be near them. Our only downfall was that we had to keep moving on our journey. Absolutely a host to remember.
Marc and Judy were wonderful hosts and made our stay a memorable one. We were greeted on arrival with a glass of wine and a roaring outdoor fire on the patio. We were kindly loaned some different styles of bikes to try including twin bikes and a trike and rode the adjacent trail to the cafe and had a delicious lunch. We were invited to share delicious clams and had great chats. We had a relaxing stay and thank you again Marc and Judy for making us feel so welcome.
They welcomed us upon arrival and were very nice. Beautiful property! Marc’s garage is a mans dream workshop. And Judy let us borrow a tandem bike to ride the trail. We had a great time. Weather was crappy but we did get to enjoy it before the rain came in. Can’t thank them enough!
We enjoyed our stay with Marc (Judy was away in their RV with her Mom). We had an interesting evening socializing with his friends and enjoyed the Swedish Candle fire!
It was a very peaceful place and we really enjoy that it's very near Hartford and New Brittain. Our host took care of us.
Although our hosts were not home during our stay they kept reaching out to us to see if there was anything we needed and their extended family were very welcoming.
The spot was spacious and peaceful and we had no trouble getting in or out. We found a great place to eat close by and enjoyed the peacefulness.
Had a wonderful night at Turkey Hill! They were gracious enough to loan us their double recumbent bike to take on the rails to trails path next to their property. Then they invited us to a barbecue and bonfire where we got to sit and talk to them about our lives and travels. We met J's mother who was a sweetheart! Would highly recommend a visit to Turkey Hill!
Host graciously allowed us to park in their driveway while we explored the Farmington bike path which is adjacent to their property. Great location!
