About Boondockers Welcome


Boondockers Welcome is a membership program that lets members arrange overnight stays with each other while traveling through an area. It’s a great way to meet locals and fellow RVers.

The $50 yearly membership fee gives members unlimited access to stay at any one of the 2890+ host locations. That’s about the cost of a single night at a campground.

About Boondockers Welcome

Testimonials from current Hosts

“I have been a host site for nearly two years now and I have yet to have anything but great experiences and guests! I plan on full timing soon and hosting other full timers has truly given me so much insight into the lifestyle. I cannot wait to become a guest with some of my past guests at their sites. Great asset to the RVing community whether a guest or host, Boondockers Welcome is awesome!”

“We hosted our first guests from Boondockers Welcome this weekend! This morning we said goodbye but we loved having them here and making new friends! Since Chris and I can’t travel a ton this year, hosting is going to help us live vicariously through those still traveling!”

We discovered Boondockers Welcome on a Monday and signed up as hosts that evening. Tuesday before noon we got our first request and our guests arrived on Wednesday. We are so happy to help out fellow campers and are looking forward to using Boondockers Welcome ourselves for an upcoming trip to southern Ontario.

Who can be a Boondockers Welcome host?

Anyone with property they control that can legally allow an RV to park overnight is welcome to become a host. You don’t have to be able to fit every size of RV, even if all you have is a driveway that can fit a B-Class (campervan), we still welcome you to join! We also welcome hosts from across the globe, not just in North America.

You don’t need to have any RV hookups available – that’s why we’re called “Boondockers Welcome” – however if you do have hookups for guests, all the better. While hosts are not permitted to charge guests to stay over, compensation for costs if hookups are used is acceptable.

Why become a host?

It’s pretty simple really! Here’s all that we expect of you:

  • Create a profile letting guests know about you and your location.
  • Respond to stay requests from members – you can decline or accept any request for any reason.
  • When your guests arrive, point them to a safe place on your property to park for the night.
  • Leave a reference for your guests after they’re gone, and they’ll do the same for you.

After that, it’s entirely up to you. Some hosts love to socialize with their guests, others go about their business and can feel comfortable knowing that their guests are fully self-sufficient.
