We have a 13 acre property at the edge of a small village on the south shore of Rice Lake, about 15 minutes north of Highway 401 at Cobourg. The boondocking spaces we offer are treed and private, located between our pond and the road. A gravel driveway leads off the paved road, through a lawn area with the boondocking sites on either side, and continues another 300 feet up to our house. There is an electrical outlet near the boondock area that can be used for light electrical loads (no A/C units or electrical heaters as the 15 amp circuit is at the end of a long run from the house and will not support a large electrical load). Parking your unit on the lawn is weather dependent, too much rain and the ground softens, in which case we situate you partway onto the gravel driveway. Suggested Local Attractions:Boating and fishing on Rice Lake, Lang Pioneer Village, Trent Severn Waterway system, Conservation areas and Ganaraska Forest trails, Summer Festivals and Fall Studio Tours.

Location

Access Road Conditions: The county road to our property is a paved road, you then turn onto our gravel driveway. The boondocking area is on either side of the driveway as you enter. You may have to back your RV into our driveway and then onto the grass depending on how you want to orient your unit. We prefer that you park on the east side of the driveway (ground is firmer on that side) especially after rainy weather. Just to be safe, please review with us where to place your RV before parking it. If the grassy area is too soft, we may ask you to park along one side of the driveway instead. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: There is plenty of room beside the driveway for your tow vehicle.

    I loved that this green space was basically it’s own piece of land away from the house - right beside a pretty bridge and cute river.

    Terry and Mia are both very kind and wonderful Hosts. Their property is pristine and relaxing. Watching the birds dive for fish in the pond while standing on their covered bridge was a memory that will last a lifetime. Thank you Terry and Mia, I hope we get the chance to meet again.
