True Boondockers (or dry campers) will find a safe, peaceful spot at North Point. This beautifully forested property is obviously the host’s much-loved private haven and we are all fortunate he is so unselfish in his willingness to shares it with the rest of us. He has obviously spent a considerable, personal sum in purchasing , transporting and spreading a great deal of stone to create a long, pull thru loop where guests can spread out and park pretty much anywhere they choose (on the gravel of course). Our gps easily found the property and we found a dead level spot to set up. Our Verizon hotspot got full service. It poured the night we came, but there were no mud or ruts on the loop in the morning. The sun came out and our pups loved the opportunity to romp and roll after many days on the road. So did we! As the profile clearly states, power and water are not offered. Since we aren’t into expensive, private campgrounds, but rather Boondockers Welcome people, we enjoy taking it as it comes and we try to truly appreciate the fact that total strangers have opened their private property for us to use, while expecting absolutely nothing in return. Our host did a great job with communications. He gave us a heads up that he would visit the site in the early evening, which he did, just to be sure all was well for us. His stay was brief, friendly and most welcome. When it got chilly, we simply turned on our propane heater and generator (which we were grateful is allowed) and we were snug as can be. Our next stop was a state park that has a 4pm check in. NorthPoint had no one coming behind us and he most generously suggested we stay as long as needed the next morning. Although we didn’t have time, there is a paved bike trail in the area that looks like it would be loads of fun. Thank you North Point, for you generosity in allowing us to camp on your land!

We stayed several nights here and barely spent any time at our rig. We loved the location’s proximity to so many historic sites. It was a bit unclear where to park and it felt like we were oversized for the turns. But the security from the access gate and the privacy are unmatched! If you’re longer than 40’, making the turn into the drive and around the bend are likely to be very difficult. We made it, barely. Had a decent view of the sky for starlink, but we had to run the generator as we couldn’t get enough sun for the solar batteries to keep up. Thankful for the location and the price is the best!

This was perfect for us as we were passing through and needed a place to stay. We had great communication and they were accommodating to our larger rig. It didn't feel like a place to stay and camp with kids for a long time, but very helpful for us along our journey, for sure.

We enjoyed our time here at North Point Location. Was behind a locked gate in a very wooded setting. My husband visited with the host at his own little shakedown street. Enjoyed walking around with our dog and really enjoyed the peace and quiet at night. We will definitely be back.

The location was beautiful, secluded on a country road. The host was very nice, hung out while we were there on occasion as he has some construction going on on the property. The host enjoyed listening to loud music while he was there- so if you don't mind 80s rock, it's not so bad. However, I can't recommend the location. Starting around 8pm every night we were there, the dogs on the next lot would not stop barking (and it's a whole pack!). In addition, the neighbors party into the late hours, shoot guns, and drive their vehicles with a loud bass at all hours. We didn't feel entirely safe.
