Boondocker's Paradise

Wow. Fabulous spot and super friendly host - what can you ask more?

We didn't stay long, but it was perfect! We arrived later than planned, and he waited for us, and even helped us level the trailer. Such a gentleman.

Nothing but good words for that spot/host! Hopefully we will be able to come back in the future and stay longer.

The Best “ EXCELLENT “

This was one of our most enjoyable stays with Boondockers. Don & Rita we’re very friendly, helpful and made you feel right at home. They have a beautiful Ranch sitting on the edge of a peaceful lake with lots of room.
We were fortunate to have some interesting conversations with Don with lots of laughs. He’s a great guy.
I hope we have the pleasure someday to show him a little of Arizona.
A BIG thanks to Don & Rita, one of the Great hosts of Boondockers.

Amazing Retreat!

We cannot say enough good things about this host or his property! We enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra night.
The grounds were impeccably maintained and the fishing was spectacular!
The kids especially loved the little private island that they could catch crayfish from.
Our host was the nicest, most ambitious, hardworking man that we have ever had the pleasure of their acquaintance.
Definitely be back again!

Peaceful retreat

After the hustle and bustle of driving all day it was sheer heaven to spend time at the ranch. Easy to find. Beautiful scenery and welcoming hosts. It doesn't vet much better. A longer stay maybe.

Donnrita was a great host wirh lots of helpful information about the roads ahead that and allowed us to follow a really nice route to our next destination. Thanks Don, best drive in a long time! And getting fresh fish from the lake was fantastic!

Perfect Stay

The Ranch is absolutely beautiful. The directions given to us were easy and spot-on.
There was someone there to meet us and he even gave us some worms for fishing! We didn’t require any water or power but it was great knowing it was there if we needed it.
We fished on the rocky point and had deer right outside our trailer! Our evening and night was peaceful and quiet.
Would definitely recommend!
