Access Road Conditions

I am on a rural road, but I drive in and out of here with my bus conversion and toad all the time. About 6 miles from Lake Michigan at either Arcadia or Frankfort.

Site Description

My rural property is nestled between cherry and apple orchards. I have a 70' x 10' gravel pad tucked between a pole barn and the woods, with water and a 30 amp RV outlet. Also have a spot for a smaller RV or trailer in a grassy area at the far end of the property.

Suggested Local Attractions

Point Betsie Lighthouse, Lake Michigan Beach at Frankfort, Downtown Frankfort, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (voted the most beautiful place in America).

A Little More Detail

I am a 47 year old self-employed sign shop owner. My shop is next door to my house and I have a 70 foot commute. My biggest passion is my bus conversion, which I travel south in every winter for about three months. My pomeranian runs most aspects of my life.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Around my home area of Northern Lower Michigan, and in my winter stomping grounds of SW Florida.

This couple and their family were a delight! They were understanding of the vagaries of cross country travel and let me change plans with grace! The location is very special: very rural but close to the highway and the lake. My spot was level and very pretty! They sent me off with directions to a scenic drive of the shoreline. I would have liked to stay longer.
I hope they will come stay with me in NY!

We had a great stay with dadesigns4u. Nice spot, friendly accomadating people, and a fabulous area to explore. Within a short drive to a couple of nice towns with beaches, dining, shopping, movies, etc. We highly recommend this host.

Host provided excellent directions with pictures to get to the site. Very nice level spot with electric and water. The property is quiet and surrounded by apple and cherry orchards. Close to Frankfort and Sleeping Bear Dunes. We had a great time sharing bus stories with the host and meeting Turbo.
