We have yet to purchase an RV. We are tent campers and recently purchased a 30 year-old pop-up trailer. We are willing to allow boondockers a chance to visit our little village, just a few minutes from one of the finest beaches in Michigan; Silver Beach in Saint Joseph. We are about a quarter mile from the dam in Berrien Springs which boasts of a big fishing community, even in winter. There are Coho salmon that go up river.

We are just three miles from Andrews University, a Seventh-day Adventist college and seminary. There are a lot of things to do in Southwestern Michigan during the summer. Winter is another story, unless you like snow. We get more than our share since we get Lake Effect snow all winter long.

We are on a fairly busy paved road which links us to the village of Eau Claire, Michigan; home of the Cherry Festival. We have a cement driveway, which is about 4 inches thick, so I don't know how much weight it can handle. It is about 50 feet long, I will have to measure it. We have an outside water connection that you can use.
We like our village and hope you do too!
