I stayed in late fall (November) beautiful this time of year. Very open area stars bright put that together with a fire pit, and steak and your having a great evening. Close to both West Branch and Gladwin Incase you feel the need to interact with others. Looking forward to my next stay.

Boondock Ridge was very pleasant. As many have said, the road noise was something to deal with during the day, but at night, you almost forget it's there. Nick and Teresa were wonderful hosts. The view from this property was outstanding! This was the perfect boondock site. There was plenty of sunlight for solar needs, yet plenty of shade to the side for a hammock. The outhouse was immaculate. The spring for water was easily accessible, and quite a nice touch. The firepit was HUGE. I will definitely be back

What can I say that hasn't already been said? This place is awesome! We all know it. Simple, private, and safe. 100 times better than crowded state parks that take months to get in. We did not mind the road noise at all, who wouldn't love the sounds of motorcycle?

This place has everything you need. Without all the bugs. Clean bathroom, running water, river access and hosts who answer your questions quickly. Glad we brought a huge umbrella to provide much needed shade on the upper level. And our tubes to chill in the river.

The river is cold and clear with sand bottom. Artisan well water is great. Nice to camp on mowed grass. The composting toilet was clean and worked great. We had a lot of rain while we were there but it soaks away quickly, no mud. It is a beautiful place and enjoyed it although there is some road noise. We liked the fact that there is only one campsite so we had it all to ourselves.

My husband, myself and our 3 children camped here for 3 nights. The positives: the spring (tasted amazing,) the river (so clean and beautiful,) two spots for one, the view and no people. The only thing that was bad, like other reviews said is the traffic. You are off of the road, but the road runs diagnal to the camp. Its not just normal traffic, its was the big semis at all times of night that was the downfall for us. But we plan on staying again in the future. The beauty just sucked us in.

Boondock Ridge was the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the scenery! The site was HUGE which was perfect for our three dogs.

Nick stopped by shortly after we arrived to welcome us, which was really nice.

The dock was private and peaceful. The water was colder than I expected, but perfect to cool down on a warm day.

The sunsets were breathtaking! We are already trying to plan our next camping trip here this fall!!

Had a travel trailer, two young kids and a dog. It was a lot of fun! It’s been a hot summer so it was nice to walk down to our little river dock with the kiddos and dog
