Total property 5+ acres, separate fenced and gated area with several electric hookups. Water is available for tank fill up. Large area to turn around. Quiet with lots of trees but no low branches and not close to parking area. Note: Due to fire danger barbecue’s may be restricted.
Paved street, easy access
Large area room to park any size vehicle
Close to Cascade Lakes area, lots of hiking, etc. Crater Lake just over an hour south.
Our stay at Cal & Judie’s host location was excellent. Our hosts met us upon our arrival and over the next 3 days we were able to have several nice long visits to get to know each other. Wih them being experienced RVers, we had lots of stories & experiences to share. While at Cal & Judie’s I had an idea on how to better organize one of our RV’s storage areas was able to complete the project because of Cal’s help. The host location was super quiet and nicely located for easy access to several of the areas natural attractions. We even saw a family of bluebirds and some elk right from our campsite. It also was nice that La Pine was close for quick access to groceries, propane, gas, laundry, library, etc. All in all Cal & Judie’s is a model example of what we look for in a Boondocking experience. Thank you for your hospitality, it was greatly appreciated and we look forward to seeing you again some day.
The site and people were beautiful! Could not ask for a better stay!
The Host's are so friendly & accommodating and the property so nice, spacious & peaceful, next time I hope to stay longer!
Gracious hosts and so welcoming and easy to get to know. Our site was perfect! Shady and power. We really enjoyed the fenced in area for our pooch to roam off leash. They were so nice to let us extend our stay a night so hubby could go fishing. Cal helped us solve a few issues with all his knowledge of RV's.. We sure hope to come back to stay and visit again.
Very beautiful and peaceful setting, along with great conversations.
Might have to hook up with them in Az someday.
Can’t wait to be able to stay here again! Welcoming, gracious, easy access, quiet, sweet dog greeting committee.. loved sharing stories of travel..
Hosts communicated well with us giving great directions to their place and met us upon arrival. Felt safe in a double gated yard with easy access and plenty of room to turn around. Just a few miles to town for groceries and laundry all on paved roadways. We were offered an electric hookup at no charge so we could keep our RV cool for our Pomeranian when we were away from the rig. Hope to meet them again in our travels. Thank You "Our La Pine place" for allowing us to stay!
I was lucky enough to stay the night at the La Pine Place. I had a private spot with electric. It was great. Many thanks to the hosts!
We stayed here in our 38-foot 5th wheel and had plenty of space. The hosts were great. The large space where you park in the pack had plenty of our kids to stretch their legs and having electricity provided was a bonus. Great spot to explore Crater Lake, and we also really enjoyed the Newberry National Volcanic Monument. The nearby town had affordable groceries and fuel.
Very nice place to visit. The newly rocked "parking pad" was spot on. Will definitely request to stay at Dale's Resort again. Close enough to the city of La Pine and close to many outdoor activities. Thanks you two!!
Very secure location with wonderful hosts. Stargazing on a clear night is amazing. I used the location as a base for local fly fishing. It was great. Thanks folks.
Friendly, welcoming hosts. Great communication. Lovely quiet evening - thanks!
Thank you Cal & Judie,
Wow amazing, wonderful, helpful hosts.
Very roomie space with 30amp hook ups, in a very quiet, serene place.
Hosts were helpful getting in and parking.
Cal and Judie are salt of the earth people and we really enjoyed our stay at their place. They were fun to get to know. Lots of interesting stories. Our dog explored every square inch of their property. You won't be disappointed with your stay here!
The hosts were gracious, generous and helped us park our trailer.
My daughter enjoyed visiting with their wonderful 3 dogs. We enjoyed our chats
and learned a lot. Cal is super talented with woodworking, he makes awesome
bird feeders and more. Judie gave us ideas for fun things to do.
Our Visible wireless signal is good here. We got to visit Sunriver village,
Old Mill District, Paulina Lake, East Lake, Smith Rock and Crater Lake.
We enjoyed our stay.. Thank you so much for sharing your peaceful haven
Cal n Judie were wonderful hosts! They met as at the gate and got us set up. Interesting folks who enjoying supporting the RV community. Wonderful people and relaxing location.
We cannot say enough great things about our time here! The access was easy and their property is picturesque. We had 30 amp service and access to the well nearby. Cal has a little shop, and was kind enough to allow us to borrow a few tools. Judie was very quick to respond to our messages. Both were great to talk to, and shared a lot of information about the area. We would not hesitate to stay here again, and will stop by just to say hello if we're ever in the area!
What a wonderful stay we had, our hosts were so gracious, and so sweet, it was a pleasure to meet them. Our night was so peaceful, and so quiet. Awesome to wake to the beauty, it was the best night sleep in 3 weeks.
Judie and Cal made us feel welcome and then left us alone. They were very pleasant and helpful. We would happily stay there again.
Prompt response, wide open area, 30 amp power and so peaceful.
A wide turn is required to enter the driveway approach and the drive is a bit narrow but I had no issues pulling in with my 36ft fifthwheel.
Other than the warm greeting, I saw nothing of the hosts, they were both warm and kind and informed me upon meeting of both the request to keep the gates closed as well as thier desire to maintain my privacy.
I will be back.
Cal n Judie are wonderful and gracious hosts. They were there to greet us and show us where we could set up. The 30 amp electric and water for our fresh tank were much appreciated. We would highly recommend this boondockers welcome location
Cal and Judy are fantastic hosts. We stayed with them twice in Salome AZ and now we’ve had the opportunity to stay here in La Pine OR. This location has 3 well spaced spots with electric hook ups well off the street making it very quiet and peaceful. We would definitely stay here again and will hopefully be seeing them next winter in AZ
Nice folks and friendly pups. Our dogs loved the enclosed area to play in. Thank you for letting us stay, hope to visit again and chat more when the weather is cooler.
Cal n Judie have a wonderful piece of property with plenty of room for us to navigate our 34’ class A and tow vehicle. Kind folks who greeted us and helped get parked and settled. The dogs are so friendly and my kids were able to get their pet fix. Thanks so much for hosting us. We will return the next time we are in the area.
Cal and Judie were excellent hosts! We are just getting started so we had lots of questions and they had all the answers.It was obvious this is their passion! They were incredibly helpful, kind and made us feel like long-time friends. We particularly enjoyed Cals workshop filled with a vast array of woodwork art among many other things. He’s a very humble man and artist and we were thrilled to hear his stories about many of the items we admired. His birdhouses are so fun and unique! We highly recommend planning a stay with them for a quiet rest in the trees for your next Boondocking experience!
Cal and Judie are such warm and gracious hosts! Judie was a wealth of information of interesting things to do locally and we look forward to seeing them again.
We stayed only one night here. There is a electric hook up, free of charge. Lovely hosts!! Thank you so much.
What’s better than 30 amp service in the pines ! Big area for letting the dog run free and nice people. Would stay again. Hot summer days and very cool nights. Lake about 30 min away higher altitude is cooler and great for kayaking. Thanks for having us !!
Thanks so much for your hospitality and exuberant welcome! Although it was a quick stay, we were thrilled with your place! 👍
Great place to stay in the high desert! We loved the birdhouses and the dogs!
Love the piney woods and its so quiet. A great place for our dog to run without a leash too. Dog friendly people! Loving the cools nights in June and the elect hook up for the warm days. These are awesome rv people and we appreciate all they do for us on the road too! Thank you so much for your hospitality. We would definitely come back again and hope our puppy will be better trained and not bark for your dogs ball! ha
We loved our peaceful stay at Cal and Judie's place. They were very kind, offered us 30amp, and suggested some places to visit in the area. We enjoyed Paulina Falls and the Obsidian Flow. On our last day Cal showed us his woodshop and that was a treat. Thank you Cal and Judie for generously offering your place to the BW group.
J & C were very welcoming hosts. The property is peppered with C's hand-carved bird feeders. They really layed out the place well with trailers in mind (cheers!). You can see the neighbor's horses about 100 yards away. Forest views and starry sky at night. It's so quiet my ears rang haha. No T-mobile service but the AT&T hotspot worked fine. An hour away from Crater Lake & less to Bend! Hope to make it back soon!
We stayed 2 nights over memorial weekend and it was perfect for our needs. 30 minutes from Bend.
They have a large lot with trees everywhere. Electric hookup. Very nice couple with three friendly dogs. A lot of space to walk around with our dog. Beautiful place not to far from the highway.
Our stay at Our La Pine Place was great. The hosts were friendly and welcoming. The are ready to help in any situation. The sites were large and 30amp electricity at each one. We will stay the next time we are in the area. Our hats are off to these hosts.
The hosts are wonderful people. They are very attentive to the needs of their guests and they make you feel welcome as soon as you arrive.
We will definitely consider staying with them again.
The hosts here are friendly and welcoming. They helped me back into my spot, we chatted for a bit while I met their dogs, and got to take a look at the woodworking shop. Straightforward, kind, and a little artsy.
We had a lovely time here. Our hosts were very gracious and there is excellent hiking in the area
Cal and Judie could not have been more kind or hospitable.
They would not accept any payment offered for power we used, let me do some truck maintenance on site that I’ve been putting off.
We greatly enjoyed an afternoon visiting with them, learning their story, the area around us. Judie gave us a great recommendation for a local museum for the kids.
Cal is quite accomplished and they both have an obvious care for the RV community.
These are what type of hosts i aspire to be when we get off the road.
Cal n Judie have the most beautiful property, and are some of the most genuine and kind folks we've met on the road. Communication with them was a breeze and Judie gave us the best directions for getting to them. The property is large and flat, with ample room for turnaround. The entire space is fenced which our lab loved, The neighboring property had horses and it was just so peaceful and quiet nestled under the pine trees. We slept like babies our entire stay. We all loved visiting with the hosts border collies too! Location is close to Bend and we also visited Crater Lake during our stay. Verizon cell service was good. We appreciated the hosts allowing us to fill our fresh water tank on arrival as well as use their 30 Amp service. They would not accept reimbursement for these which is just above and beyond in our estimation. We are so thankful to you for your warm welcome and generosity. Happy travels to you and your pack, and we hope our paths cross again soon!
The hosts were lovely to chat too and we so enjoyed meeting their dogs. The spot was level and with electric/water, what a treat! We were surrounded by pine trees which really felt like we were in the middle of the woods. We visited Newberry Volcanic lake about 30 mins away and walked around Lake Paulina. Thank you so much!!
This was the second time I have stayed with Cal n Judie. I had forgotten how quiet and peaceful their home is. I got a much later start the next morning than I had planned because I was enjoying the ambiance so much. They are such nice people. I know I will be back!
For those of you traveling with pups this place is pretty awesome. Out of the country, quiet, completely fenced, what more could you ask for? Would definitely recommend
We had a very nice stay with Cal and Judie. Very nice property that made for a very quiet stay and good night's rest! Thanks!
Judie and Cal are very nice and their place was good also.
These hosts were lovely and accommodated despite our short notice, delayed arrival, and hectic remote work day in their back yard the next morning! Great folks, and great spot to spend the night, especially for our dog in their huge fully fenced area. We had to drag our pup away 😂
Was looking for a quiet place to stay and that's exactly what we got! Cal and Judie were very nice and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Even allowed us to use a nearby electrical hook-up. They have a LARGE fenced area that the dogs got to run in til they were worn out! Would definitely recommend!
Thank you to our hosts for being so kind to our big family. Not only did we have a great place to plug in and fill up our tanks, they have space to soak up the surroundings. Thank you again for your generosity in sharing your land and selves.
I enjoyed my time to collect my thoughts and get some alone time. It was incredibly peaceful right in the middle of a pine forest. CalnJudie were welcoming and friendly. It was nice to be away from the city life for the short time I had. would stay again for sure.
Lovely hosts. We greatly appreciated having a safe spot to park over Labor Day weekend. Very quiet location. Electric hookups. Our dogs enjoyed running in the fenced yard. Thank you both for offering your location to us!
Cal and Judie were wonderful hosts. We were warmly welcomed. It is a beautiful site and enjoyed being able to park with fantastic pine trees. Thank you Cal and Judie, we will see you in the future.
Judie and Cal were welcoming and gave us freedom to come and go. They were helpful to us newbies in RV life and gave us tips. Our pup loved it because she had a huge area to run free and their dogs accepted her and she felt one with the pack. We’d love to return one day. Many thanks!
Cal n Judie were very accommodating and gracious. We went to Bend and visited the town for my husband’s birthday and they hosted my two kids as well. Very kind people. We had very nice conversations about family and got suggestions to see places in the area and even got a wonderful recommendation for Mexican food. The property was quiet and peaceful. Would definitely come back!
Calnjudie are the perfect hosts, welcoming and kind, happy to share their experiences. While they were preparing to leave on a trip the next morning, they took the time to show us their shop, home, and RV.
Thank you for your tips on visiting Crater Lake. We made it cycling around the rim! We saw an RV like yours and wondered if we passed each other. Our home is always open for a visit.
What an excellent experience! Cal and Judy were awesome hosts, made the stay effortless, and shared great tips for the local area. Hope to see them again soon.
Cal and Judi were lovely and generous people! The area where we were settled was large and fenced in. My dogs had so much fun getting to be off leash!
While there I met another couple who gave me other boondocking locations to check out. RV people truly are a. Class act...helping others...sharing tips.this was my first boondocking experience and I couldnt be more pleased!
And, the night sky, was just icing on the cake.
Thank you Cal and Judi!
Our hosts were the best, sharing stories and touring the woodworking shop were highlights. Letting our fur babies meet and play off leash was a treat. Don’t miss an opportunity to meet these people. A true joy and we hope to visit again.
Stayed 3 nights. They are in a quiet & somewhat secluded place. But, easy access to all venues. They are very nice people. They have a lot of room for RVs. If we are ever in this area again or in Arizona at their winter home we will ask to stay with them.
As with all the Boondockers Welcome folks we have met, this couple and accommodations were great Friendly, knowledgeable of the area with suggestions about good Mexican food and beautiful drives to take. Thanks for sharing your La Pine Place!
Easy access, check with the hosts about using the gates. Cal offered electric but I'm happy using my solar. The offer to fill up my drinking water jugs I took gladly! I didn't get much time with the dogs or Cal and Judie, but they're kind and generous folks for sure! (the dogs are cuties) I had good cell reception, the spot was roomy and lovely. Off to more adventures!
I loved staying at Cal n Judie’s property. It was so quiet that after being on the road, I just sat and listened to the wind in the pine trees. There are a lot of outdoor activities in the area...hiking, boating. They were perfect hosts.
Beautiful quite location, host were very helpful directing us in. If you travel with a big rig swing wide to make the turn into the drive. 30 amp was nice. But the weather was nice, even a bit cold till morning. No need for AC.
This is always a wonderful stay and always prepared for guests.
Cal n Judie are the most gracious host's. We spent two nights here. It is so relaxing. Lots of room for our 33 ft trailer. 30amp service. And there was another boondocks here at the same time. We traded stories and got along just fine. We traded tours of our trailers. How fun!!
We had the opportunity to stay at "Our La Pine Place: this last weekend. Cal n Judie were gracious hosts, letting us fill up our tank with their fresh well water, and giving us a 30a electrical hookup (much needed for the AC - it was a warm weekend!). Property was fenced and private. Easy access to town or sights, beautiful star-filled sky and soooooo quiet at night. Got to meet some fellow travelers our last night, who were staying in one of the other spots. Great folks, full-timers, plenty of stories on their travels.
We highly recommend this location and hosts - and hope to visit them again some day soon!
We can’t say enough good things about our stay at Cal & Judi’s! They are so welcoming and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay. The property was very easy to find, and there is plenty of space for every shape and size rig! Also, our dogs loved the fenced in 3 acres they got to freely roam. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!
We requested a 5 day stay to explore La Pine and Bend. Mosquitos were initially intense when we first arrived, but got better during our stay there. We were mostly out and about, so it wasn't too much of an issue for us. Our kids absolutely loved playing with their dogs, Missy, Tally and Bubba. We enjoyed our conversations with Cal n Judie. They were incredibly kind and offered up great advice! There's always something to learn from fellow RVers. We highly recommend this host and location! We hope to cross paths again in the future. Thank you for the wonderful experience, your generosity and kindness is much appreciated!
Fantastic property. Relaxing and quiet. Owners are phenomenal hosts. Awesome dogs
We look forward to visiting again!
PS-- don't forget bug spray! Large property with mosquitos.
Wonderful inviting couple. Great set up to accommodate travelers. Judy met us at the gate, and Cal was there to direct us. Had another couple come in after us, no issue plenty of room. Thank you for making your place available.
We had a great stay at Our La Pine Place. Our hosts were happy to great us, help back into our spot and provide us with 30 amp hookup. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to enjoy the beautiful forested property as we were tired from a long drive and the mosquitos were out in force that week. We will definitely be visiting again if we're in the area!
My fiancé and I and our dog enjoyed 2 peaceful nights at Cal n Judie’s place. They were very kind and welcoming. The rv area was great, large and separately fenced from their living space home and yard. One other rv was there the first night but the area is so large three was plenty of room. We were able to use power and fill up our tank when needed. Our dog loved the property and playing with the hosts’s dogs. We did too!! The hosts are very experienced RVers and shared good info. It was very peaceful. We loved waking up to the quiet and pine trees from our windows. We would most definitely stay her again and look forward to doing so
Wonderful property and wonderful people! They let us use their electric and our dog just loved running around the grounds! The snow started falling so we had to head out quick! Thanks for a wonderful experience!!
We had such a warm welcome from La Pine hosts! From the beginning to the very end, we were more than pleased! Both of them are amazing people & would highly recommend to anyone in any situation!
We had read all the wonderful reviews so we decided to stay overnight on our way to Crater Lake National Park! So glad we did. They were incredibly hospitable! We appreciate the conversation and restful stay❤️ Highly recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful stay!
We really appreciated this place to stay while we were traveling between locations, with plans to visit Crater Lake. We work full time remotely and this worked out really well, as there was abundant AT&T cell service at the site.
The Hosts were gracious and helped us park. They also have very friendly dogs, and the area we were in was fenced off allowing us an area for our dogs to play in.
We were traveling with another couple who were also in their fifth wheel, and there was plenty of space for more rigs here if need be.
If we come through here again, we'd definitely love to have this place to stay.
Thank you so much to Cal and Judie for the amazing welcome, sharing their beautiful property, and the great hospitality. We work full time during the day, and enjoyed the area in the evening. What a great little town of La Pine! If you come, you just HAVE to check out Cal's art! What a talented man!! We hope to come through again sometime in the future and hope to get to see them again. Easy access through 2 secure gates. Very quiet and very dark at night. A perfect stay. This was our first time using Boondockers Welcome and we our next host have some big shoes to fill. Thank you again Cal and Judie!
Justin & Stacy
Enjoyed our one night stay with Cal and Judie.
Felt very welcome for our first ever Boondockers Welcome stay.
Great start to our trip to the Oregon Coast.
Thank you for making us feel so welcome. We enjoyed our stay so much!
You have a beautiful peaceful location, thank you for having us.
My dog Saoirse and I had a fantastic stay in La Pine. Judie and Cal are amazing hosts, and our dogs had a great time playing together. I look forward to coming back to see my new friends again!
Lovely property full of pine trees, about 35 miles south of Bend. Lots of fun things to see and do in the area. Hosts are friendly, full of information and most generous with water and electricity. We hope to stay there again.
Cal and Judie are the most gracious host's. Wonderful level parking area in the Pondarosa Pines. No issue getting in or out. Someone showed up with about a 37ft motor home. They didn't have any problem getting in or out. 30 amp hookup. Water is available to fill tanks. And it is well water, so it taste's great! All fenced so the dogs could run all over. Lots of room for my 33ft TT and truck. We stayed 4 nights and would have liked to have stayed longer but we had to keep movin' on south. There are squirrels running around. We even found deer tracks next to our trailer in the morning. Cal took about an hour of his time to help me with a hitch issue. He has all the tools you could ever need. Their dogs are very friendly. I just can't say enough good things about Boondocking here. Thank you Cal and Judie, it was a wonderful stay!
It was so relaxing to stay with Cal n Judie at their beautiful pine forested property. They were most welcoming and their 3 dogs were very friendly. Great forest walks are close by
Enjoyed being with Cal and Judie. They greeted us as we drove in the driveway, showed us where to park, and where very helpful. Location was great. Very close to town and tourist attractions,
This is our third visit and as wonderful as the first time! It's a treat to visit with Judie and Cal and catch up with their lives since last year.
Their space for the trailer is so beautiful and quiet. You feel like you are away from it all and really, just, 15 minutes from town.
There's so much to do in the surrounding area, and if you like delicious Mexican food, be sure to try Cinco de Mayo. Warning - go early to avoid a wait - it was crowded at 4:15 p.m. on a Saturday afternoon.
Fishing at Fall River (about 15 miles) was exceptionally good this time.
Thanks again for the time to visit and to walk with you and your three special dogs!
We needed a stop over as we were leaving Crater Lake and heading to Boise. We had a lovely stay and generous hosts (and some great dogs). Perfect as we were passing through! Thank you!
When you need a quiet space along your way then plan a stay. Everything better than noted. La Pine is just a short trip for Grocery Outlet and the $ Store or other needs. My plans had to change at the last minute and Cal n Judie were very understanding.
Come as strangers and leave as friends certainly applies.
La pine place is a great Boondockers site. Spacious, quiet and gracious host. Hope to see them at their site in AZ. M&D
4 nights, C n J are kind, caring and accommodating, 30amp, water, and a few acres fenced for the dogs to run at will. Throughly enjoyed our stay. It's summer in the high desert so expect some dust. Will definitely return.
This was a beautiful place to stay and the hosts were so generous and fun to visit with. Our dog was very happy to play with the happy pups who live here. Another plus was the fantastic tasting well water. It was hard to leave. There is so much to do in the area. We really enjoyed the Newberry Monument.
“Our La Pine Place” is a great place to stay. They are such gracious accommodating hosts in a peaceful quiet setting. My dog got along great with their dogs and I was privileged to get some good instruction on my new wood carving endeavor. I would not hesitate to book a return visit sometime.
Had a very pleasant stay at Cal and Judie's place. Would definitely come back if I'm in the area again. Perfect place for a larger rig near to Bend and 30amp power too.
Judie met us on the roads edge by the driveway and she and Cal helped us get set up with the 30 amp power :-)
They also allowed us to fill up our fresh water tank as our service spot had none available. Both were very helpful and Cal helped me trying to locate a minor electrical issue on the toad.
Great couple with fun kids (the three amigo dogs)
This was a wonderful stop near Bend! Cal and Judie are such gracious hosts. The large fenced yard was so peaceful and a great place for our children to play! Thanks again Cal and Judie! You have a wonderful home and we appreciate you opening up your property to us!
It was great to meet Judie and Cal again, and their individual dogs! And enjoyed their new (to us) rural, quiet, roomy location. Thanks guys! I’m sure we’ll meet again somewhere!
Wonderful couple, friendly dogs and beautiful location. 30amp service available which was appreciated greatly.
Cal and Judie are simply the best! They were very welcoming and offered a lot of information about Central Oregon. They had plenty of space for our 40ft rig and the electrical hookup offered along with fresh water available was a bonus. Our kids had a great time playing with their dogs as well. All in all a great stay and we would definitely stay again.
Great hosts plus 3 very well behaved and friendly border collies. Plenty of room among the tall pines. Cal and Judie are welcoming and gracious to visitors and very knowlegable about the surrounding area. Will definitely stay here again!
What a beautiful stay! Judie and Cal were so helpful in getting us all situated..start to finish! We fell in love with their dogs...which are like little humans! Awesome hiking..so much to dohere...Cal is a fantastic artist..he reminded me so much of my father it was hard to leave! Genuinely good people..we will see them again thats forsure! Thank you for showing is your shop and guidance of LaPine...
Judie and Cal are warm, wonderful hosts. Judie helped me plan my route north and Cal made sure I was settled in comfortably. Robbie was ecstatic and slept so well after being safely off tether in their fenced-in yard. We haven't been able to play catch much lately, and really enjoyed ourselves. Judie's invitation to spend a second night gave us extra time to navigate and get some more exercise. All thumbs and paws up for Judie & Cal and the pups.
Great stay..all good .plus 30 amp power
This was the 2nd time we've stay here, first time was back in June.
It was much colder this time, got down to about 28 in the middle of the night!
Our hosts are always super nice, and their ranch is big enough for several rigs.
Nearby La Pine is a great little town with lots of good mom and pop restaruaints and several good sized markets. The first gas station on your left as you come into town, driving North, has diesel and propane.
If you like pine trees and very dark nights (milky way photographers anyone?) then this is the spot for you.
The turn into the driveway is sharp but I drive a 45' DP with a motorcycle lift plus tow a car. I just used all of the (dead end) road and had no problem. I unhooked the car before parking in the spot for the night. Also, we drove to the street and hooked up there the next morning - no traffic at all.
The hosts are RVers themselves and are genuinely keen to host and meet new friends. If you are travelling in central Oregon I recommend La Pine Place.
Cal and Judie have a great place to spend a night or two. They are gracious hosts. We have a forty footer with a toad and had plenty of room to maneuver. The 30 amp electricity was an added bonus. Recommend them highly.
We look forward to coming back here to see Cal and Judie, as well as to see the high desert attractions we weren't able to this trip.
Very peaceful setting beneath the pines. CAL and Judy are very gracious and generous hosts. Thanks for accepting our late stay request. Hopefully we can return to ths beautiful area and visit with them again. Great pups!
We had a wonderful stay with Cal n Judy and the pups. We will def stay again when in the area!
Cal and Judy are great! and their dogs are super friendly. Their space for boondocking was perfect and came with 30amp hookup. We liked it so much we considered staying a couple extra days but the road was calling and so we only spent one night.
Very helpful giving us suggestions on rerouting our trip to avoid I5 closure because of a fire.
We will definitely see them again and plan on a longer stay. Thanks again Cal and Judy for your generosity!
We had a wonderful time with Cal and Judie and the 3 dogs. They gave us a lot of information about their area which we visited. It was fantastic. Lots of places to see. Cal and Judie were very hospitable. We enjoyed chatting with them at the end of the day. Thank you again.
From Aussies in USA.
Love to Missy, Tallie & Dewey.
A beautiful, peaceful setting in the pines! Very gracious, friendly and helpful hosts.
Cal and Judie were absolutely wonderful hosts. They answered any questions we had about the local area and gave us useful info like where the closest dump station is. They know the area, which was a help because there is quite a lot to see and we only had a few days so had to narrow down our options. They were friendly when we arrived and whenever we sought them ought, but gave us our privacy. We could come and go as we pleased. We ended up staying a few extra nights to have some more time to explore. Their place is easy to find, and easy to maneuver in and out of. It is quiet and was a safe place to unhitch while we explored. I highly recommend Cal and Judie's place!
Quiet, peaceful environment. Hosts were warm and welcoming. Great dogs and they were very friendly and good with my 2 dogs. It is a wonderful place to stop if you want a restful stay, have pets, 30Amp service is available and a nice place to stop.
What a beautiful place. Very quiet. Cal & Judie were excellent hosts. Several acre lot surrounded with tall trees. 30 amp service. Water if you need it. Made you feel like your welcome and wanted. Cal has a lot of hobbies he willingly shows that he works on. A great place to spend a few days & we would stop again if in the area.
This was our first stay with a Boondockers Welcome host and we can only hope the hosts we visit in the future are this welcoming and this much fun.
The property is mostly sunny which is perfect for us because we have solar, and they were kind enough to fill our fresh water tank while we were there, which was a huge bonus since we were going to be boondocking for several days after leaving their property! There were no low hanging branches on the road, the driveway (which is about 500 feet long) and no low hanging branches on the property. The parking area is large enough for about 8 to 10 large RV's so plenty of room to back in or even turn around. The ground where we parked our fifth wheel was perfectly level hard packed dirt. Our hosts were super friendly, and while we were there they had some friends that were also staying on the property. They were all a lot of fun to hang out with. We spent most days visiting local attractions, but we did sit outside with the group on a few occasions, chatting and telling stories of our collective RV adventures.
We had such a great time that we joined Escapees so we can be sure to meet up with them again, hopefully very soon! The property is located within 10 minutes of La Pine, which is a very small, clean town with a lot of new construction. They have pretty much everything you need, a Post Office, an Ace Hardware, quite a few gas stations (with diesel) and several that also sell propane.
There are a couple of grocery stores in town, and plenty of Mom & Pop cafes with great food. Try Cinco de Mayo, really good Mexican food! This is a great stop if you are planning a visit to any of the local attractions like the lava cave or high desert museum and Bend is only about 30 minutes North.
Just make sure you drive super slow through the property because they have 2 very sweet dogs that will sometimes escort you, so you don't get lost.
Reception and opening the gates was during heavy rainfall. Sorry for that inconvenient arrival. We got a second patch on higher level to put our rv. Was much better. And had a nice chat afterwards. Experenced our stay very positive and more in comparison with the next day when sun was shining againg. Thanks Cal and Judie and au revoir.
We thoroughly enjoyed our second visit with Judie and Cal!!
They are incredibly gracious and helpful! We hope to visit again when we’re over in that area of Oregon.
Our La Pine Home was a great night's refuge after a Long day driving! Hosts were friendly, met me at gate & directed me to a great spot out back, with 30 Amp. Enjoyed visiting about their place, acreage, RVing & shared resources & ideas. Their back area was fairly level, easy to access behind 2nd gate & in the back away from house & drive. Really appreciated the last minute acceptance & warm welcome. Hope to return as invited with more time to explore the area, and learn more about this interesting couple. Happy Trails
This was my first BW stay, and they were awesome hosts. Bonus point for having 30 amp available! They are super nice, helped me back up my giant rig, and the location was nice and quiet. I was going into Bend each day, which is a bit of a drive, but happy to have a free location to stay instead of paying Campground Rates bear there.
We had a lovely spot. It was nestled in the pine trees and very quiet. The hosts are very kind to open their land up to people and are extremely accommodating. We enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend this host to others! Thank you!!!!! :)
These guys are our mentors! We hope to be just like them some day. Ideal situation. Summer place in Beautiful La Pine, and winter place in the warm and wonderful Salome. PERFECT!
Thanks again to both of you for the wonderful place to rest our heads for a few nights. We appreciate you both and look forward to the next time we see you!
Cal and Judie are great. They accepted my request literally in less than 5 minutes and said "C'mon over!" Their property is just a few miles off of Highway 97 and is easy to find. They welcomed us at the gate helped us get set up with power and water right off the bat - very accommodating! Our dog immediately loved the huge fenced area to run around in. And their dogs are also very sweet. Then they left us alone to get settled in and get a good night's sleep. In the morning we awoke to the sounds of many birds chirping and I had a great conversation with them for about an hour before we left. Great folks! We'll probably visit them again soon there or at their property in Arizona. Highly recommend!
I stayed at Cal & Judie's place for a few nights taking some time to relax away from the road (as I had been traveling cross country for three days already). Very quiet here, definitely just what I needed! Thanks so much yall :)
Great people and so friendly! Thanks for the info on some of the routes we are taking and providing your space for us!
We had a great time meeting Judy and Cal! They were both so kind and friendly. Their recommendations for a great place to eat dinner was right on! If you stay there, be sure to leave room for Mexican food at Cinco de Mayo.
And, Cal was extremely helpful to our questions regarding RVs. We are still new to this and Cal's expertise was invaluable.
Loved meeting their precious dogs, Tally and Missy.
Thank you Cal & Judie for a wonderful stay! I know the pups loved being able to run around the big enclosed area. It was like a dog park all to themselves!
We can not say enough good things about Cal and Judie! We were greeted warmly and as if they had known us forever. They opened their home to us, visited with us and gave us directions and recommendations on things to do and see in the area. We enjoyed dinner together. Cal helped Herman with a repair. Our original plans were to stay 3 nights but we enjoyed their company so much we stayed an extra night. We were sad to leave and will miss these two new friends! We hope to see them in GA soon!
Very social and helpful hosts. It was so quiet at night I slept in later than planned. Would recommend them to anyone in the area.
