On Sullivan's Crossing, Maggie Sullivan is a star neurosurgeon who seemingly has it all, until her business partner is indicted for fraud.

Looking to distance herself from the fallout, Maggie decides to leave Boston and return to her childhood home of Sullivan's Crossing, a rustic and remote campground run by her estranged father, Sully Sullivan.

There, Maggie rekindles old friendships and builds new ones with the local residents, including a handsome newcomer, Cal Jones, who only serves to complicate her life further.
