We are generally home through Labor Day for fellow RV'ers to stay in our back yard. There is plenty of room for at least two RV's and possibly more as long as they pickup after themselves and leave a neat spot for our next guests. This is a senior neighborhood so no parties. There is one electric hook-up for guests to use. It's a 20 and 30 amp plug so you will need a converter if you require 50 amp. Suggested Local Attractions:We live on the Crow Wing River and Lake Placid. This is a tourist area and there are many attractions in the Brainerd area to visit. We are only 11 miles from Brainerd.

House Rules

Pick up after your pets. Maintain a neat clean campsite and pick up all of your generated trash and deposit in the onsite garbage container. Be as quiet as possible and no loud music or partying. No unattended children playing or swimming. We have grandchildren that do visit on rare occasions and we don't allow them to bother campers so we expect the same from our campers.

Kathy is a retired waitress ---- Mike is a retired automotive shop owner Details: Our home is on the Crow Wing River just west of Pillager Minnesota. We have room for a couple of RV's at a time for an over night stay. We have no sewer or dumping facilities since we are on a private septic system. We can arrange for water and electric hookup in summer if needed. The road to our home is blacktop so no dust to contend with. We invite travelers to call us for directions and space availability to park their RV in our back yard and enjoy their stay. We enjoy boon-docking when we travel too. Pets are welcome on leash as long as they are quiet and picked up after. This is a senior neighborhood so it is intended to be reserved and quiet. Home Town: Our home base is about 2 miles from Pillager, Minnesota on the Crow Wing River. We have a total of about 2 acres that front on the river. It is a quiet senior neighborhood that is off of the highway by about a mile as the crow flies. Generally it is quiet here. We travel a lot so much of the time campers have their own space. We ask that folks call ahead (218-829-7323) to let us know when they expect to arrive and we can let our security know someone will be near and about. I have given my cell phone and the only time that I may not answer is if we are camping out of the reach of service. Even if we are traveling, we can direct campers how to find our home base and exactly where to park and access electric. Favorite Boondocking Locations: The mountains and Coyote Howls in southern Arizona. Onegume Federal Campground north of Deer River, Minnesota. Big Sandy Federal Campground north of McGregor, Minnesota. The second weekend of July we go to Iola, Wisconsin to the Old Cars Show and camp at Lake Emily near by. Skills or Expertise to Share: Mike is a retired auto tech and is into old Thunderbirds. Kathy is an excellent cook. There is an outside fire grill on our back deck too.

    This Boondocking location is the best we’ve had in a long time. Host was attentive, friendly and we loved the time we spent visiting and sharing stories with her. Unfortunately her husband was not home so we never got to meet him. We had no problem finding lots of stuff to do to keep us busy during our 4 days here. Our paddle down the Crow Wing River, right to our host house, was the highlight of our stay. Super quiet place with easy access parking and lots of room. Definitely should try this place if in the area.

    We are so glad our hosts let us stay on their property for the night. it was a perfect location for us and the property was easily accessible. Our hosts were friendly and the directions were good. We will definitely stay again when in the area.

    Mike and Kathy are great hosts and want guests to have whatever they need. We had electric and were able to add water to our tank. Lovely spot and we would visit again if in the area!

    Mike and Kathy were great hosts. Mike broke out his atlas and helped me with directions. I have a 35' fifth wheel and had to back the rig down their straight and level driveway. Easy Peasy. Another fifth wheel came in after us and did the same thing. Lucky, the dog, is gorgeous and cute. Thank you for your kindness and hospitality!

    What a great find for us! We have a family reunion each year in Pillager, and needed a place to park our fifth-wheel. Turned out this location was only 5 houses from where we needed to be, so it was super convenient for us to get back and forth to the meeting place. Mike & Kathy were very welcoming, and although we didn't get to spend a lot of time with them, we enjoyed the visits we did have. They have easy access and lots of room to park. 30-amp service was a great bonus! We will be back again - thanks Mike & Kathy!
