Same Day Requests
My rural property is nestled between cherry and apple orchards. I have one back in and one pull in site with 30 amp power. We can also sometimes put a pull through in front of the pole barn and run a 15 amp cord to it. I have a lot of guests here, sometimes the 30 amps are taken. If you must have 30 amp, make sure I know that and that I can accommodate you. There is a small dip where you pull off the road, but I've had many buses and Class A coaches with tag and bogey axles in and out of here. Suggested Local Attractions: M22 (National Scenic Byway), Point Betsie Lighthouse, Lake Michigan Beaches at Frankfort/Elberta/Arcadia, Downtown Frankfort, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (voted the most beautiful place in America), 45 minute easy drive from Traverse City. Several local breweries/meaderies/distilleries are close by, local rivers for kayaking/canoeing, Little River Casino 25 miles away. Here's a neat little PBS TV spot about Frankfort: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjLlED8iQjk
Vehicle Suitability Information
Electric Hookup: 30A
Outdoor Cooking Allowed
Separate Tow Vehicle Parking
Campfire Ring Provided
Because I have so many BW guests, I have decided to clarify electric use and arrival/departure times - I ask for $5-10 a day to help cover my costs. My electric bill is tripling in the summer these days. If your arrival/departure times will vary significantly from the normal (after 2 pm check in, noon check out), please let me know so I can try to accommodate you. Again, I have many BW guests, and quite often one is leaving the same day another is arriving. Otherwise, nothing particular, other than my business is also on the property, so excessive loud cursing or streaking during business hours would be frowned upon :-)
Access Road Conditions: I am on a rural paved 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, and 3 miles off US31and M22 highways. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Lots of room with campsites.
