We are 40 min. north of Grand Rapids, Michigan, 3.2 miles from M37, and 12 miles from US 131. Google Earth does not have a up to date photo of our property. 3D Earth has a good picture, I don’t know how to pull up our property yet. Still trying to figure that out. We are in the country, so you will have a quiet night with thousands of stars. Surrounded by our 40 acres of woods, our bird feeders and flower gardens attract plenty of birds and wildlife. We have a patio with a fire pit to share with you and walking trails for you to explore. There are many small towns in the area with a lot of different attractions — too many to list. Area restaurants offer a variety of food and Newaygo offers quaint shopping along with a river walk. Enjoy nearby lakes and rivers to fish, boat, tube and kayak. There is a place on the river that rents tubes and kayaks. Our biggest rig so far was a 45’ three axle toy hauler. Our area for parking is 100’ long and 70’ wide. Turning into the drive was more difficult than parking our guest said. If traveling with friends we have room for three trailers, but you would need 60’ of electric cord and 100’ of water hose if you wanted to connect to utilities. One night stay please if traveling with friends. Spring of 2023 I will be getting Wy-Fi out to our barn for our Boondockers. 2022 was our first year and we had know idea how important Wy-Fi was to our guests. I thought of boondocking as camping and what would I need. We found out that many guests are still working or are full timers and need to be connected.

House Rules

Normal quiet time after 10 PM. If we are out with you, we will try to be quiet if you need to go to bed. Please have your pets on a leash. They can do their thing in the woods, but if they don’t please clean up after them. No recreational drugs. We kindly ask for a 3pm or after check in time. We still work and would like to be around when you show up. If you need to show up earlier, and don’t mind coming in by yourself, let me know.

Location

There are all paved roads to us. We have a one lane drive which will require a wide turn entering and exiting. For the longer rigs, 55’ + total, coming in from the East is better. You can drive on the side of the road and maybe in the grass a little to make the swing wider. Our mailbox and the neighbors mailbox hampers that approach from the west. I am 52’ total with my rig and coming in from the west is no problem. Please do not worry about tearing up the parking area, I have a tractor to fix any imperfections that may be made. We have a lot of room for dropping a tow vehicle in the driveway. There is one spot with water and electric at this time.

My wife, Melissa, and I love the outdoors. I enjoy hunting and fishing, while Melissa likes spending time in her flower gardens and going for walks on our 40 acres of wooded property. Camping is a highlight for both of us. Although we have traveled throughout the USA, most of our camping adventures have been in Michigan — a state we love! Since both of us are extroverts, it is no surprise we truly look forward to meeting and getting to know people! When we saw Boondockers Welcome, it was a natural and easy decision to become hosts. We look forward to traveling to Boondockers locations and getting the “inside scoop” about places to go and things to do while we are there. As hosts, we hope to share information about our local community and all that it has to offer. Our backyard, patio, fire pit, and walking paths are always “open” for our guests to enjoy. Melissa has been in education all of her life, and I have been in construction. We promise not to assign any homework or rope you into any home projects, though! We simply hope our guests relax as they enjoy camping in our “country oasis”. We have been hosting since 2022, and we are always excited to welcome guests!

    Keith and Melissa are great hosts and they offer a great place to Boondock. From the time we arrived, Keith was there to make sure we had the spot we wanted. There is plenty of space and they were very accommodating with a little time conflict that we had. He got us plugged in to 30amp and provided water so that we could fill our tank. Our evenings around the fire were very enjoyable with them and their children. We would love to come back to stay!

    When I signed up for BDW, this is what I was hoping for. Keith and Melissa are great, friendly hosts who enjoy sharing their beautiful property. Plenty of flat ground to park on (I had 50 amp too!). Be prepared for no (T-mobile) cell service and no WiFi, but this is FOR SURE a 5+ out of 5.

    Keith and Melissa are great hosts. We had a good time around the campfire on their really spacious patio. We saw deer, turkeys, squirrel, and a number of different kinds of birds. Great outdoor atmosphere. Easy access to the camp site but you will need to be a little careful with the larger rigs. We made it with our 45ft 5th wheel so most anyone can fit. I would recommend for anyone looking for a nice quiet setting for camp!!

    This was such a wonderful stay. Close to several small towns and an hour drive to Holland. Kids rode bikes on their back wooded are! Melissa and Keith were amazing hosts. We have verizon cell and coverage wasn’t good, but had a booster and that did a great job.
