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.
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.
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.
