After digging away about 6" of top soil (clay in this region), we put in #2 gravel (up to around 6" in size). Drove over it with the truck and garden tractor for a few days then had some 3/4" delivered. Our area is about 18' wide and 40' long. I put a separate 30 amp line and box to it(10 gauge) and put the wire underground.

Good luck.

I've been working on a 'crib' in the barn for our TH for the winter. I put down 1/2" slag from the local steel mill. it doesnt create much dust like lime or pea gravel, packs like concrete and is okay to use under concrete which i plan to pour in the spring. the barn has 200amp service and the bay is wired and lighted for the TH and the toys.

the slag is alot cheaper too: $2.50/ton compared to $6.50/ton for 3/4

I have a large enough driveway I bring it into to load and clean pre/post trips and have a weatherproof 30amp outlet on the side of the house to plug into there.

I just put down 3/4 blue stone. I put down the lanscapers cloth first. It works great. No very expensive and easy to spread. It is also loose enough that the trailer will not go anywhere and if you wash the trailer the dirt and water will drain right through. I also looks nice and stays in place so that the landscaper will not be breaking windows with loose ones finding them selves in the grass area. Came out so good I am going to expand it so there is room for the boat.
