We are located on a tidal river about 5 miles inland from Portsmouth NH and Interstate 95. The boondocking site is the right hand side of our driveway. The driveway is pitched so you most likely will need a couple inches of leveling blocks. The electric connection is a standard 15 amp household electric circuit so RV AC may overload the circuit. I hope to upgrade that to a 30 amp soon. Our rear yard is river front and is totally fenced in so the dogs can be off leash. We ask you pick after your pet. You can sit by the campfire looking at the river and also use the screen house to avoid the bugs in the evening. Suggested Local Attractions:Dover; Woodman Institute, NH Childrens museum, Patty B's Italian restaurant Portsmouth NH; museums , seafood restaurants, waterfront parks Great stop off on your way to the white mountains of NH or the coast of Maine If the tide is right we can take you kayaking on our river. See Great Blue herons, deer, Bald Eagles, and if your lucky a black bear.

Location

Access Road Conditions: Our street is a small dead end neighborhood of 12 homes. There is a turnaround at the end but it has trees overhanging. Shouldn't be an issue backing into our driveway or backing out into the street. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: With your camper. The camping spot is our driveway. The maximum length for camper and vehicle is 35 feet. In our sloped driveway you will need 6 to 8 inches of blocks to level your camper front to back. I have made heavy duty wood ramps which you can use.

“If your not living on the edge your taking up to much damn space!” Details: We are a moderately active outdoor loving couple that love sharing our little slice of NH with others. When we get away we enjoy traveling to new places and camping in our teardrop camper. Jackie is retired from the health profession as an occupational therapist and now spends her time kayaking and tending gardens. Her own, clients, and works the spring rush at a local garden center. Richard is a retired REALTOR and former owner of a retail mailing and shipping store in Durham NH. We enjoy kayaking and paddle boarding on the tidal river which we have frontage on. Our idea of relaxing is a campfire overlooking the river with a glass of wine. In 2019 we celibrated our 40th anniversary. Home Town: We live in Dover NH which is on the seacoast of NH about 5 miles inland from Portsmouth and Interstate 95. Richard is a NH native from Dublin NH and Jackie is originally from Westwood Mass. Favorite Boondocking Locations: Here in the east boondocking locations are scarce. That is why this site is so helpful. Especially to us with small campers. Most of our camping is done in the NH, VT, and Maine state parks and National Forest sites. Those are the types of locations we enjoy. We do do some boondocking at music festivals that provide field camping in the New England area. Now retired we are planing on some longer trips. Skills or Expertise to Share: Richard is pretty handy at fixing most anything mechanical but not electrical. Being totally color blind he cant tell green wires from red wires. Makes for some interesting sparks! Jackie's training as an OT and hand therapist helps her diagnose and fix aches and pains. She is also an amazing gardener. Richard digs holes and moves plants and bushes where he is told to.

    Jackie and Rich were such kind and welcoming hosts. We loved visiting with them and learning about great places to visit in the area. We hope to be back on a future trip. Thank you for your kindness.

    Richard and Jackie are so very hospitable and enjoyable! We enjoyed their fire pit with them In their backyard and enjoying the great conversation and scenic views. Their backyard has breathtaking and magnificent views. New Hampshire is wonderful and this stop made our trip here even more wonderful!

    Most of my communication was with husband, but the wife was gracious and let me take some ice for my evenings. Lovely sunset scene in the back yard. When my plans changed and it didn't make sense to spend another night, they were accommodating.

    As it has been said, the hosts are interesting, generous, and so thoughtful. They helped us find activities and places to eat that suited our desires. The backyard is a paradise. The gardens are lovely and the screened-in gazebo provides a cozy place to take in the surroundings when you are not otherwise seated around the fire pit. We enjoyed walks at the Bellamy wildlife management area and strolls on the seacoast. The wind was a bit much for kayaking, but we will return to take advantage of that. The Dover area is an endless playground for things to do and places to explore.

    What a beautiful place! A fenced in yard down to the waterfront was wonderful for my dogs. The hosts were warm and attentive, as were their animals. It rained a lot during my stay so that cramped our style. I would love to stay here again.
