We're located 4 miles from I-69, 7 miles from I-94, and 9 miles from Port Huron on a rural 13 acre setting. Our gravel site is appx. 600' off the road in a very peaceful, quiet and secluded setting where we offer water and 30amp electric. The site is adjacent to the woods with a large lawn and pathway through our pollinator field. Pine River nature center and the Wadhams Avoca trail are both within a 10 minute drive and offer miles of hiking and biking. We are also 15 minutes away from the beaches of Port Huron and Marysville, and appx. one hour from Detroit. Please be aware we are beekeepers and although our small apiary is a safe distance from the site, honey bee stings, although rare, can occur. If you have an allergy to bee stings, please make sure to have your Epi-pen with you. Suggested Local Attractions: Lake Huron and St. Clair River beaches are 15-20 minutes away as well as the Blue Water Bridge to Canada where you can view the Great Lakes freighters. Grocery stores and restaurants are also 15 minutes away as well as a full service camping store and truck wash. There is an in season RV dump station 4 miles away and a year round dump station 10 miles away.

Dogs must be on leash, please clean up after your pet. NOTE: No Pittbulls, Pittbull mixes or aggressive dogs of any kind. We have a small 5 pound dog and have concerns for her safety. We also have a 8 year old Golden Retriever. Both dogs are very friendly, not leashed and roam the property. Please no loud noise, respect our neighbors. Children must be supervised and stay away from outbuildings and the apiaries. Please leave the site the way you found it.
We're on a paved lightly traveled road. Driveway approach is slightly oversize and can accommodate any size rig. Our gravel driveway is long and goes through the woods. Branches are cut back to allow for up to 13' clearance and the driveway is wide enough to allow any size rig to easily get through. Tow vehicles can stay hooked up, or disconnected and parked next to RV.
Hosted By Schulerranch
We are "young" retirees with a love of travel and RV'ing. Our adventures have taken us to many national parks and monuments across the USA. In addition, we have travelled to Europe many times, visiting friends and their families. Each winter we take our travel trailer from blustery southeast Michigan to Florida or the Alabama gulf coast. We enjoy the outdoors and meeting other folks who share a love of RV'ing and travel. We've hosted several high school foreign exchange students from Germany, Denmark and Switzerland. Our grown daughter lives in Denver and is embarking on a career as a dentist. Our hobbies outside of traveling include beekeeping, which we're always eager to share with others, and growing Hosta plants, of which we have over 120 different types. My wife's father lives with us and loves to talk about the military and muscle cars having been affiliated with both for many years. Home Town: Our hometown is Smiths Creek, Michigan. We enjoy our wooded property and the relative peace and solitude it offers. Summers are often spent kayaking along the beautiful Lake Huron shoreline not far from our home, or taking short camping trips to locations within our scenic state. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We've only stayed at a couple boondocker locations and have enjoyed both equally. Skills or Expertise to Share: We are both retired professionals whose hobbies include shade gardening, beekeeping, home improvement projects, reading great non-fiction books, raising monarch butterflies, hiking, nature photography and snorkeling.

I had two different hosts recommend staying at Schuler Sanctuary, and the recommendations didn't disappoint. Spot was great, my dog loved walking through the botanical path. Definitely recommend.

We have hosted over 60 Boondocker members…. Every experience has been wonderful. I’m happy to say that Schuler sanctuary, was our first Boondocker experience as campers, and the wonderful experience was reciprocal. Secluded, peaceful, and amazing display of botanical nature..,, to watch the bees in action is always quite amazing. We had long interesting talks with the owner, his wife, and his wife’s father. Loved their pups…. Once acclimated they became fast friends… We would love to try to head back next year in the spring when the bees are even more active

What a wonderful private place to stay. Great site set-up. Mike is definitely the "Bee Whisperer" and Lisa his "Queen Bee."

This is probably the best BW place we've stayed. It's set up like a state park! Very private gravel pad with utilities, overlooking a meadow. Friendly hosts and beautiful, quiet setting. We enjoyed evening walks on the trails through the wildflowers.
