We live in a rural farming community. Our property is pretty secluded from the neighbors. The road is pretty quiet most of the time. The camping spot is grassy and has a fire ring for cooking. There is a large fire pit in our back yard if you would like to have an evening fire and we are not using it. The camping spot can accommodate up to a 35 foot camper however if you have a larger rig you are welcome to park in our driveway. There is not a water hook up however there is an outdoor faucet available to fill water jugs. We have a hobby farm with free range chickens. Shoes are recommended, chickens are not shy when it comes to going to the bathroom. There is a trail for walking through our woods. If you are here in mid to late spring you can enjoy falling asleep to the sound of hundreds (possibly thousands) of frogs. We have a swamp on the northeast section of our property that is full of frogs. Rabbits frequently wander around the yard. On occasion bald eagles can be spotted flying overhead or sitting at the top of the larger trees. The field across the street to the north and east of us is home to cranes. We cannot always see them however we can almost always hear them. The 50 vacant acres next to us is home to lots of deer that can sometimes be seen from our yard and crossing the road. Suggested Local Attractions:We are just outside Manistee National Forest which offers ATV trails and sightseeing. Boat launch on Muskegon River is approximately 15 minutes away. Canoe and kayak rental in Newaygo on Muskegon River about 30 minutes away. Amish grocery store, tack shop, and furniture stores within 15 minutes. Highly recommend Jimmy's Roadhouse in Newaygo (25 minutes).

House Rules

No smoking on the property. We have horses, they are very kind horses however they are large animals and require experience. Petting them from outside the fence is fine (watch your fingers, sometimes they think you have food), going into the pasture is not permitted. Please do not handle any of the animals without supervision. Currently we do not have an off leash area for dogs so please keep your dogs leashed for the safety of our dogs and other animals. Please observe quiet time starting at 10pm. Be sure fires are out completely before turning in for the night. If using the trail in the woods please stay on the trail. We are still cleaning up from the previous owners and have found barbed wire throughout the woods. The trail is clear of all trash and barbed wire.

Location

Access Road Conditions: We are one mile off the main road if coming from the west. If coming from the east we are the first house about 600 feet from the corner. The driveway is hard to see if coming from the west. Our driveway is just past the stop ahead sign on the south side of the road. If coming from the east the driveway is pretty easy to see, you will see our yard first then the driveway. Our road is paved and straight. If coming from the east you will travel on Dickinson which is very rough to the north of us and very curvy to the south. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: There is plenty of room to park either next to your RV or in the driveway.

A family of animal lovers, camping and car enthusiasts Details: We love camping, our goal is to camp in all 50 states, as of September 2022 we have camped in 24 states. Currently we have 25 animals. We enjoy old cars and going to the race track.We enjoy growing our own vegetables and making applesauce. Home Town: We live in Holton Michigan. It is a little odd, the town of Holton is in Muskegon county, we live in southwest Newaygo county. Favorite Boondocking Locations: 2021 was our first camping season being a part of this community. We stayed at a few Boondockers Welcome locations but really enjoyed Constellation Farmstead in Pelkie, MI. Skills or Expertise to Share: Tim is a very skilled maintenance mechanic and can fix pretty much anything. Ann Marie loves to cook and try out new recipes. Tim loves shooting French Indian War era muzzleloaders in competition, I am sure he would love to show them off. Ann Marie has been a snowboarder most of her life. We have two daughters that live with us. Our oldest runs a Ranch/Pet Sitting and Horse Training business, our youngest is a senior in high school.

    Tim and Ann Marie are great hosts, making us feel right at home, like part of the family. Sharing stories of activities the family does together and we’re fortunate with our timing to be present to share the first ever delicious chocolate cake their daughter made from scratch! We stocked-up on fresh laid eggs and enjoyed walking the trails Tim mowed through their woods.

    My husband and I needed a place to park our RV and motorcycle trailer while staying at a lake house in the area.  The hosts at Frog Hollow were not only very friendly and accommodating, but they even took time to cover our motorcycle before some heavy storms went through the area. We had forgotten to do so, and they went over and beyond by taking care of it for us. An added bonus was getting to pet their two beautiful horses. We also bought some delicious farm fresh eggs from their daughter. Highly recommend!
