We are located on the Great Peninsula between Gig Harbor and Port Orchard, about a mile from Puget Sound and a boat ramp/kayak put in onto Clovos Passage. Our 5+ acres is mostly forested, with ravines and a small stream that can be accessed through our trail. Our property was part of the infamous "Starvation Heights" site.

Location

Access Road Conditions: We recommend approaching our driveway from the north (driving south on Orchard Ave. S.E.) We have a 37' long class A motorhome and back down our driveway as there is only a 45 foot turn around in front of the house. We pull in head first from the asphalt county road into the gravel driveway, unhook our TOAD, take the first drive to the right for about 40 feet, put the rig in reverse and back down while turning 90 degrees then through our gate and downhill on asphalt the rest of the way to the house. Rigs that are 30' or less have driven in head first and turned around with no problem. The longest site can easily accommodate a 40 foot class A motorhome and has 30 amp and 20 amp electrical, water and a holding tank dump as long as your tank treatment is septic tank friendly. A shorter, upper site can accommodate up to a 30' rig and I can get 30 or 20 amp power and water to that site too. The 3rd site can accommodate a 25 ft rig and can get 30 or 20 amp power and water depending on how many rigs are on site. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Plenty of room for one Toad or tow vehicle per site. We don't recommend our place for trailers unless you are an expert at backing your rig.

    Superb hosts - exceedingly kind and attentive. They willingly gave me a very much needed and welcomed lesson on RV basics, considering this was my second trip ever! The area is beautiful and quiet. A+

    Ed and George were very kind and generous during our stay. They have a beautiful property, we camped out at the bottom of the hill by the house. Our Class B was easy to maneuver in the driveway. A great base to visit the Olympic Peninsula.

    Ed and George were extremely gracious hosts. We needed to extend our stay (me miscalculated some driving time), and accommodated us. Will visit again!

    Great location, easy to access and maneuver with our Class B. The Hosts were wonderful; they were communicative and responsive to our messages in a timely manner. They made us feel welcome and at home. Will visit again.
