Great stay

I had a great stay in their yard. I even went 4x4 riding with Bill a couple of times.

Didn’t want to leave!

Unfortunately circumstances dictated an earlier departure than we had hoped. So sad to leave such unbelievably special hosts and their wonderful friends and neighbours. We treasure the time we had together and value having made such good friends. Can’t wait to be back!

Fine Hosts

Bill and Karen were among the first to become BW hosts. And they exemplify the traits of the best hosts; experienced RV’ers, with fun personalities, open hearts, cool stories, and the rare talent of being good listeners. We shared ‘Movie and Cream Night’ with their friends. Wished we could have taken them up on their offer to stay longer.

Great experience!!

This was our very first Boondocking welcome experience! Very nice couple! Had great conversations. Great quiet safe area. And they didn’t mind that we have two large dogs and two teenage boys LOL!!
If we are ever in the area again we will definitely try to stay here.


February 2020

Very Nice

Very nice...Short drive to Yuma and LaDonas, Mexico. All hookups incl sewer and strong local TV. Flat and secure. Very nice couple hosts. Will definitely stay here if we come to the Yuma area again.

Hard to put into words the wonderful welcome and hospitality we’ve experienced with our hosts and their friends, not to mention the fun and laughter! We are very grateful, and so appreciate being invited to return soon for more happy times.

Great Place to stay in Yuma

We should have planned to spend more time with this host. We will need to return and stay with them again when we have more time.

Great RV-friendly location in Yuma

I stayed overnight while on the way to California and BillLandcruiser was a terrific host. From a warm reception, to an offer to join him and his friends for a trip out on the desert to letting me join him for a McDonald's breakfast, he made me feel right at home. This is one of the most RV friendly locations and after coming from the East Coast it was great to have some Arizona hospitality. I hope my journey leads me past this way again and that I can get to the Desert Getaway for another stay.

This couple are amazing. They made us feel totally welcome and even invited us for a day long jeep ride in the Yuma desert. We arrived as strangers and left as friends. The campfire was especially nice and I learned that palm fronds are great fire starters. If you are passing through Yuma, this is a must stop. We plan on making it a regular stop.


March 2019

Worked out good

The hosts graciously allowed us to get parked and set up while they were away. The location was quiet and located in a nice area. It worked out well for our stay in the area.
Thanks very much

Excellent Stay!

Bill, Karen and Lady are amazing and generous hosts. They offered a great site complete with hookups. Bill graciously took us off-roading in his Jeep not once but TWICE for double the fun. He also introduced us to his favorite fish taco establishment. Yum! We had a great time getting to know all three of them and look forward to visiting again. 😁


January 2019


Very helpful host, however the weatherperson did not arrange suitable weather. Will try again at a earlier date



November 2018

Great visit

Bill and his wife were very welcoming to us and our dog. They offered full hookups. Bill was kind enough to take us off roading in his Jeep showing us sites I am glad I didn’t have to drive to in my van. Ask him about the best fish taco place. Overall an excellent five day stay.


January 2018

nice visit

We had a nice visit to Yuma, thank you again for your hospitality and for the hydro and water. Wish you well in your future travels.


January 2018

Excellent Hosts

Bill and Karen are great hosts. We enjoyed our time with them, a nice campfire in the evening with travel talk and in the morning when we left, we forgot our hose! Bill called us and rather than us going back for it, he brought it to us. Great folks.


January 2018

Great hosts

We stayed one night with Bill & Karen on our way to Quartzite. Great location with sewer & water hook-up. Bill is an expert in guiding in a big rig. Loved the fenced yard for our dogs....he & Karen have great travel adventures they shared with us around a fire in the evening! Sorry we couldn't stay long enough to go 4-wheeling. BONUS- we forgot our water hose and Bill called, then brought it to us! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Lovely Spot and a Great Hosts

We stayed a couple of nights with Bill and his wife. The location is lovely and quiet and I only wish we had more time to sit and chat to find out more about them. Bill had great ideas on what to do while there. Please visit us in Florida one day.


March 2017

Knowledgeable and Helpful

We were newbies on our first week and contacted Bill about boondocking at his spot. He was so gracious to us, shared quite a bit of knowledge and vectored us in our spot like the pro that he is. We had a family emergency requiring us to scoot out early but hope to share a time here in the future!


December 2016

Great New Friends!

We had an awesome stay with these folks! Beautiful, secure and quiet location! They not only gave us a wonderful place to stay a few nights but also were kind enough to show us some sights and introduce to the date shake. YUMMY! We quickly became friends and look forward to a long relationship!

We hope to be back in a few weeks and get a fish taco we heard about and shower Lady with some more love. (smiles)

Helpful in every way

Although Bill's site was full, he went above and beyond to find a beautiful location nearby at a friends place where we had a most enjoyable stay. Highly recommend!


February 2015

Thumbs up!

Enjoyed meeting our hosts - very friendly and accommodating. Easy to find location and we were provided with a very level and secure site. Recommend.
