We live in the country on a working farm. Most of the time the farm equipment should be gone, exceptions may be early spring and late fall, with field work Corn and Soybeans. Parking for RV is by 3 grain bins. We currently have 7 50 amp locations, 5 30 amp locations and 7 20 amp locations. We have a circle drive around the grain bins with lots of green grass. We also have 125 x 125 cement slab with no electric for parking campers. There is water available in hay barn to refill tanks. We only have one picnic table at this time. Horses are welcome, we do not have any corrals for you to put them in; there’s a third of a mile lane that you can ride up and down. Plus there’s miles of gravel roads around here. There is 28 TV channels you can get with just your regular antenna. Feel free to use WiFi just connect to farm1 or farm2
We have very few rules, if you have horses or large pets please throw their leavings in the field. We would prefer if guests could arrive before dark. Our place is rural and only lit with one yard light, Otherwise, we only ask that children be supervised and not allowed near the farm equipment when it is here.
Access is down 1/3 of a mile gravel road from paved county road. Turn in at driveway with the Mickey Mouse Ears pole light. Gravel road is very well-maintained. We use the road with a semi for unloading the grain bins so maneuvering into the camping area will not be a issue.
We can even handle large groups.
We have a very large area, you may leave towed vehicle attached to camper or unhook. We have a circle drive around the grain bins with lots of green grass.
We tend to go on last minute trips, but feel free to give us a shout to see if we can accommodate you..
We have added a list of attractions that is way to big for this area. Click below to see our attractions web site. http://www.burkhartelectric.com/Burkhart%20Boondockers%20Site.html
Great hosts, very helpful, and very organized. We enjoyed meeting them and making a memory we will never forget. Hopefully we can meet again and share more stories, wine and cheese curds.
The Burke’s were excellent hosts. They have several parking spots with 30/50 amp electric hookups. Free WiFi and lots of OTA TV channels. We were blessed with a beautiful sunset and sunrise too!
The area is great for peace and quiet. Mark is a very considerate and accommodating host.
We stayed 3 nights. Enjoyed sunrises and sunsets. On clear day, we were able to see 12 miles. Burkhart Farms was friendly and accommodating. There were antique shops and a unique warehouse and toy museum in nearby towns. We look forward to passing their way again.
We had a great night! Tons of open space to maneuver and park, open space for the kids to run around. The Burkarts were so nice and helpful, making sure we had everything we needed. We especially appreciated the electrical hookups :)
We arrived after dark to the Burkhart Farm and were warmly greeted by our hosts. The couple is awesome and their property is beautiful with plenty of space. Our hosts offered to allow us another night, but we already had plans to meet with friends. 100% recommend y’all try to stay here. We hope to visit again and spend more time with our hosts. Great family!
We had a perfect stay on the farm. Got a lot of information about the land and the corn and the soy. They gave us everything we needed. Next morning we joined them to watch the bicycle tour and enjoyed it. Great hosts
Our host were great very nice people we had a very relaxing time we enjoyed the farm and the surrounding town our host was very gracious we shared our RV adventures and picked each others brain on RVing and boomdocking we enjoyed a morning breakfast in town we didn't do the trestle as every afternoon it rained we did go to the creamery you get the chance don't pass that one up we hope one day we will come back or run into our host along our paths of adventure. Thank you for all your help we appreciate out new friends.
The hosts are very friendly and they love traveling so they make the perfect hosts. They are very accomodating with hook up and water. The host even brought his picnic table over to where we parked our camper. No need for big rigs to worry about space or turning radius - it's wide open. Great little Iowa oasis. Thanks for letting us stay.
What an amazing stop! We booked this just to say we got to Iowa but what a surprise. This is a relaxing heartland spot with very gracious hosts! I can honestly say we have never plugged into a grain silo, but we can check that one off our list now. Our hosts were so welcoming and answered all of our questions about the area and the state. Our little dog had the run of the place exploring the soya bean fields, the silos, the barns, and anywhere he could get into (with his peeps, of course.) We had a great old "chin wag" with our hosts about all things RVing, farming and Disney! Easy access, easy in and out. Nearest shopping is a few miles away so you may want to stop at Walmart or Aldi on your way in. Don't miss out on a great relaxation stop. Disclaimer: Visit was in June, no guarantees about winter months!
Ps: when we got ready to leave we couldn’t star the rig. Several hours later and with the help of Mark’s mechanic friend we were back in business. Mark graciously extended our stay and we got on our way a day later than planned. What an altogether great experience!
