Location

We are at the end of a small private drive that has several other houses on it. It does have a turn close to the beginning that may be tight (we get our 23' trailer in and out just fine, but we do watch mailboxes to make sure we are clear) - there are also several trees that probably wont allow 5th wheels to clear them. Parking is in our side yard, and water is available to fill your tanks, but not to leave hooked up. The area is generally quiet, but there is noise from the local race track that is loud on some weekend nights in the summer and fall.

Age:

45-55

I currently live in Southern Ohio and we travel on the weekends when we can. My grandparents used to drive from Ohio to California to bring my brother and I back to Ohio for Summer visits when we were kids, and I think that instilled a love of road trips that has stuck with me. I generally travel with my boyfriend and our mini Australian Shepherd puppy, Skye, but also travel solo part of the time, or with a friend or one of my kids (aged 13-34). Travel companions just depend on where I’m going and who can go.

    I arrived later in the afternoon and was greeted by Stephanie who gave me a couple if options to park-I chose thr gravel space. Stephanie also offered electricity for a small fee of 5.00 (so worth it)! Very nice cute town within walking distance-stop by The Village Scoop and taste some yummy ice cream!

    We stayed one night here after leaving home in Michigan for a long drive to Florida. Stephanie provided a quiet, secure place with electricity that allowed us to stay warm on a night where outside temperatures were around freezing. She provided great communication to guide us to her home, and was waiting outside for us as we arrived. Parking our trailer in her space was a snap, and we were set up in minutes. Her location was just a few minutes from the highway and we were easily on our way the next morning. She’s a great host!

    Very easy to get to from the highway. Nice and quiet neighborhood. Very nice, level yard. We also were given the option to park in the driveway. Stephanie is very friendly and quick to communicate. Appreciated being able to plug in (15A). Will definitely be back if we pass by again.
