Great Site

This site was the best location for me nearest to Des Moines as I spent my last two days with family at the Iowa State Fair. The host was very gracious and such a sweet lady. Thanks so much to Boondockers Welcome providing truly wonderful travelling stays!

Quiet spot in the country

Our hosts were very accommodating and we had several options of where we could park on their property. It was nice to talk with them briefly when we arrived. Would love to stay there again if our travels take us that way.

Quiet sleep

This is really a wonderful place to spend a night. Had great local tv channels and local AT&T cell reception for hotspot. We kept it quiet and simple using the 15A power to run the furnace blower for the heater over night.

Great stay in the Tall Pines

A great couple and a great stopover.

Easy in and out with the circle drive and loved the shade and 15 amp electric.

Easy to talk to about any subject. We sat on the porch until after dark and hated to end the conversation then.

Highly recommend and will stay again when in the area.
