A not-quite-level paved parking area on our 12 mostly-wooded acres in Connecticut. This was part of the Paradise Park Game preserve before it was divided and sold. The parking area is near our house, and we have a paved turnaround for RVs. The driveway is only one lane wide, and is partially shared with our neighbor. Suggested Local Attractions:Close to state parks, golf courses, Quinnipiac University, and Yale University. Also only about 30 minutes away from the beach.

Access Road Conditions: We have a long driveway that splits between us and the neighbor. Stay to the left when coming down the driveway! We try to keep the overhanging branches clear, but keep an eye out, especially after bad weather. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: A 30 ft RV can park here, and a tow vehicle can park near the garage. This is all off-street parking on our own property.

    Kristen and Mike are great hosts - very welcoming, flexible, and gracious. We needed an extra night due to a medical issue and they were able to accomodate us even though they had a construction project starting. Delightful people. Parking spot is down their long, private driveway without a loop so be prepared to unhook if you are towing anything. MIke was very helpful in getting us into the area were we parked. Parking spot (next to their house) is very quiet and peaceful. Another great experience!

    We endured the heatwave of 2021 thanks to the hospitality and generosity of our hosts. Also, as remote workers we were able to have some hardcore focus time as the location is supremely quiet save for the sounds of nature surrounding our little van. Kristen and her mother are pleasant and have interesting stories to share. I am thankful and appreciative of their generosity and aim to reciprocate to others in the future. Overall a great experience.

    RickandKristens place is very peaceful tucked in their own section of the woods. I have 20 foot truck pulling a 28 foot trailer and it was not pad maneuvering down to the spot in the driveway. I was having some issues with my heating system and the host helped troubleshoot and offered some 15A hook-ups. I stayed for two nights and the full day, made a trip to NYC. Other than that, I enjoyed some New Haven pizza and running some errands. Very nice spot with friendly people.
