Access Road Conditions: Paved private road. Parking area is paved 26 x 40. Class B, Class C and Vans under 22' can just pull in. Trailers and larger campers will need to back in: You will need to be comfortable with backing up and have the skill level to back up a 100' drive way with an incline and a curve. Driveway pavement is 10' wide with a 13' wide clearance between 2 trees. (see photo) We can back our 22' trailer up there, but it's a challenge and it takes a bit of time and effort! We are not trying to discourage anyone, but just giving you fair warning and asking that you be realistic about your ability to back up what may be a challenging driveway! Also your vehicle needs the power to push your trailer uphill. If you tow a car behind, you will need to disconnect in town before arriving Tow Vehicle Parking Details: next to rig

Living our best life everyday Details: We have been happily married for 40+ years. We are retired and love having the freedom to do what we want when we want. We love to travel in our trailer but we also travel through a home exchange group. We like to travel, kayak, hike and garden. We spent a winter traveling all over Baja in our trailer and it was a great experience we are looking forward to repeating. We hope to go to Alaska for 3 months and also are planning a major cross country trip. Nova Scotia here we come! We both are natives to northern California and feel lucky to live here with so many great adventures right in our own backyard. Life is good and getting better! Home Town: Grass Valley, in the beautiful Sierra Foothills of northern California

Rick and Mickey's home is beautiful and they are wonderful hosts. We had a nice coffee chat on Sunday morning. The location is great - close to town but quiet and wooded. It's very easy to find if you follow their instructions. The parking area is so flat!!! There's optional power hook up for a small fee (which came in handy because during our stay the temps were in the high 90s). Thank you again!

Mickey and Rick's place was our first Boondockers experience, and I am pretty sure that it will forevermore remain Our Best Boondockers Experience! Absolutely picturesque setting, we were made remarkably welcome, and we experienced the hosts' perfect balance of gracious helpfulness and respect for our privacy. Thank you, Rick and Mickey, from me, my wife, and our daughters, for what was a Perfect Stay!!!

We had an amazing experience! Great communication before as well as during our stay. We asked for recommendations on places to explore and eat, everything Rick and Mickey suggested was perfect! Their property is a perfect slice of heaven among the trees. Very quiet and secluded, but only a few minutes from Grass Valley and Nevada City. Definitely recommend staying here if you are in the area.
