We are located on the Great Peninsula between Gig Harbor and Port Orchard, about a mile from Puget Sound and a boat ramp/kayak put in onto Clovos Passage. Our 5+ acres is mostly forested, with ravines and a small stream that can be accessed through our trail. Our property was part of the infamous "Starvation Heights" site.

Location

Access Road Conditions: We recommend approaching our driveway from the north (driving south on Orchard Ave. S.E.) We have a 37' long class A motorhome and back down our driveway as there is only a 45 foot turn around in front of the house. We pull in head first from the asphalt county road into the gravel driveway, unhook our TOAD, take the first drive to the right for about 40 feet, put the rig in reverse and back down while turning 90 degrees then through our gate and downhill on asphalt the rest of the way to the house. Rigs that are 30' or less have driven in head first and turned around with no problem. The longest site can easily accommodate a 40 foot class A motorhome and has 30 amp and 20 amp electrical, water and a holding tank dump as long as your tank treatment is septic tank friendly. A shorter, upper site can accommodate up to a 30' rig and I can get 30 or 20 amp power and water to that site too. The 3rd site can accommodate a 25 ft rig and can get 30 or 20 amp power and water depending on how many rigs are on site. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Plenty of room for one Toad or tow vehicle per site. We don't recommend our place for trailers unless you are an expert at backing your rig.

    Ed and George are the consumate host. Their six acres deep in the woods is perfect place for peace and quiet, yet just minutes to Gig Harbor, and Bremerton. The well manicured yard is awesome, as well as the 3 rv spots they have created for fellow travelers. I would definitely stay there again.

    We loved our stay with Ed and George! They were so friendly and fun! We had such a wonderful time visiting with them. They are most accommodating and generous. The grounds are gorgeous and quiet. There is a trail behind their home that is so amazing as well. We will definitely be back as long as they are willing to host us!
