ShellBoBell's Hometown

We live in Ira Township MI. We live right on a large bay on the St. Clair River. There is a great home town cooking restaurant across the street. Also a church. There are a few marinas close and the DNR ramp. Down town New Baltimore is only 3 miles away. New Baltimore is a traditional downtown still offering a unique shopping and dining experience and wonderful waterfront surroundings, including a public park and beach.

First Boondockers since Covid-19 hit

It was my first time hosting since early March. We wore masks and social distanced. ShellBoBell is enthusiastic and so nice. Her rig is amazing. She is building it herself! Such a pleasant experience to host again and for such wonderful people. May they make their way back again - or maybe I will see them when I make it to their state!

Beautiful View

ShellBoBell & husband are great hosts. They are a very busy couple with lots gong on! They offered to take us on a boat ride twice, sadly we couldn't as we were visiting an old navy buddy I hadn't seen in 38 years. Their parents are terrific as well. The property is pretty with beautiful views of Anchor Bay. We are in a 35' 5th wheel that's 13'6" tall. We got in, and we got out, but was a tight fit for something that long and tall. Leaving, I had to get on the roof and guide the overhead wires so we didn't rip them down.

Great Stay

Our host let us know ahead of time they wouldn't be home when we arrived. She sent me a detailed message as to where to park and how to hook up to electricity and water. Also said we were free to use their fire pit, patio, and to make ourselves at home (weather permitting, you can fish and swim right off their dock too.) Arrived and set up, super easy. After setting up, looking out the windshield of our RV, was a beautiful view of Anchor Bay! There was room to extend both my slide outs.
The next day we met our host. She and her husband are very hospitable people. We had a nice visit, and when I got ready to leave they assisted me in backing the RV out. I plan to revisit again next summer.

Pretty nice

This was a great location for us to stop. The host was very friendly and allowed us to plug in. Our kids got to swim right off the dock, which was really fun for them. I will say the site to park the rig was pretty tight. This spot would be more ideal for shorter travel trailers, van life or class C rigs. My TT is only 11' 6" and there were clearance issues that we were able to navigate. Lovely people and a great area. Thanks again!

Great little place on the lake

Very good hosts. Although we had to cut our trip short, we thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay. Would go back again.

The most amazing spot and hosts we could have asked for!

We had the most amazing time here, we really can't say enough positive things about this place! Not only were we in the most beautiful location right on the lake(it's even more pretty in person than in the pictures!), but ShellBoBell went above and beyond to make us feel right at home! She gave us a tour of the beautiful local downtown New Baltimore and marina right when we got there, took us out on her two boats on two separate occasions, taught us how to wakeboard AND knee board. It was the most fun we've had in a long time!

We spent time with her friendly daughter and husband as well who made burgers, popcorn, and ice cream sundaes for us. We could really write a book about how awesome they are and how amazing our stay was. If you are considering staying here, DO IT! We promise you won't regret it!
