You are welcome to smoke in your own vehicles/RV, but not outside on our property, do not throw your cigars or cigarettes on the ground; please dispose of them in your own trash receptacles. All pets must be on a leash at all times; retractable leashes are not allowed or acceptable. Please pick up after your pets; in your camp site, in the yard, on the driveway, on the road and in the weeds...please, do not leave it for wildlife to become interested in or attracted too. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR PETS ALONE IF YOU GO OFF SITE; THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE TIED UP OUTSIDE WITHOUT YOU, THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE LEFT INDOORS WITHOUT YOU ON SITE. This is a safety issue; we have wild animals that do cross paths with us as they make their way through our property. If your pet is tied up unsupervised, they are prey; please, do not put them in that situation. If they are left inside your rig alone while you are gone and your A/C fails, they could quickly perish. There is no exception to this rule; I will call you and then ask you to return immediately. Thank you for your cooperation in advance. Children must always be attended and supervised.
Access Road Conditions: Our property is on a gravel/dirt road, we have a gravel/dirt driveway (unpaved). There are no steep hills or tight corners, no low lying trees or branches to avoid, we have grassy parking areas as well as some dirt/gravel areas. No need to reverse down our driveway, plenty of space to turn around. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Very large areas for additional parking, parking next to your rig, plenty of space to turn around too.

Denise and her husband were great hosts. They met us when we arrived and offered good advice on places to see nice fall colors, which was the purpose of our trip. We had a quiet night at their place.

Hosts were friendly and welcoming. We opted to pay for electric and added water the second day. Nice flat parking, ten minures from where we needed to be. Worked great, thank you!

I can't speak highly enough of my experience staying at Denise and Jeff's place. They have a very peaceful location with room for guests to spread out and have their own privacy. I was lucky enough to talk with them a few times and was thoroughly impressed by their kindness and generosity. They're great people! I would love the opportunity to stay with them again someday and would highly recommend them to others passing through the area!

Denise and Jeff are exceptionally nice and respectful people. Communication was beyond excellent, Denise did an incredible job making sure all was going well with our stay. Flat grassy area to park, plenty of space. Their property is located in a very quite area with the added benefit of nearby towns having everything you may need. Can't say enough good things, in summary it's a great boon-docker stay with genuine and generous people.

We were entirely comfortable boondocking at North Haven. Denise, the host, was very friendly and welcoming. The space was beautiful: lots of green, wildflowers, and songbirds. In the evening when the mosquitoes appeared we were treated to an enchanting dance of the dragonflies. Quiet, starry night, good- tasting water, and really good people. This was our first experience with Boondockers Welcome. I'm afraid we've been spoiled for future stays!
