Active outdoor enthusiasts Details: Married and recently retired. After enjoying tent camping for 35+ years we bought a tiny teardrop camper and loved it. Now have a larger unit and travel during the summer and sometimes winter months. Look forward to meeting fellow boondockers we host when we are home, and hosts we stay with along our travels. Our favorite place is the next one we visit!

    Kat and Dale were great and very knowledgeable of the area. They have a level grass area with shade. Thank you for hosting and we would definitely stay again if we are in the area.

    Kat and Dale were the best. The site was very peaceful, easy to get to and the location was perfect for getting to all the fun adventures in the area of Sleeping Bear Dunes and more! Very friendly and great conversations! We had the perfect 3 night stay and recommend the Best of NW Michigan to everyone. Thanks Kat and Dale!

    Thank you! This is a quiet neighborhood very close to the highway so convenient. Also close to the wonders of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and other Lake Michigan towns and beaches. Our hosts are welcoming, full of information, but not intrusive. Again, thanks. Happy Trails.
