    a gorgeous little field surrounded by a variety of lovely trees. and big Open sky an abundance of parking space and area to maneuver. 50 amp power hookup and the most generous and wonderful people to walk this Earth hosting. would recommend highly. please be aware that GPS doesn't work well in the area. if you find yourself on a dirt road anywhere except for the street that the host lives on stop and find a different route. there are some pretty terrible dirt roads and logging roads that GPS thinks are passable by RVs but are not.

    A beautiful, quiet and starry place to spend the night. Deer and turkeys roamed the fields, curious as to my presence. Host communicated well and made my stay easy and laid back. This was a quiet place for reflection and a short drive to the Leelanau peninsula (my next destination). Thanks so much!

    Fantastic communication and spot on directions to help us avoid the dirt roads. We use RV trip wizard and the garmin RV gps. Both were sending us down seasonal roads. Not with his direction, he gave us two options as soon as we booked our stay, so we rerouted our route to his. On arrival day it was perfect! Thank you! Especially after the rough day we had. We called and told him we would be late due to a tire blow out which also took out the valve stem oh the other tire. So we had to wait for a tire company to take care of that tire. So we were 1.5 hrs late. He said Not a problem. His wife got us all settled. What a beautiful location! Wish we could have stayed longer but just needed a stop for the night. We greatly appreciate them being a Boondockers welcome! We love meeting such nice people and fellow rvers! Also having a safe place to park for the night! Being able to stay in s area for a few days is another reason we love boondockers welcome! Love to come back and visit this area sometime! Thanks for a great night stay and wonderful communication! Was fun seeing the deer and turkey that evening in the field. Reminded us of home.
