Excellent Hosts

This was our first boondockers experience and we could not have ask for better hosts. Ken and Cathy were .super friendly, kind and very accommodating and their property was very beautiful and relaxing.

Best of the best!

We spent two nights in Harrisburg with these wonderful people. We enjoyed sharing travel stories, RV tips, and some ice cream. They have a beautiful location that is easily accessible. We took a short trip over to Hershey's Chocolate World. We spent July 1st at Gettysburg. Be forewarned--you need to plan a long day at Gettysburg to take it all in. Thanks so much for sharing your peaceful sanctuary with us.

Wonderful, welcoming hosts in a quiet location

This was our first experience with Boondockers and we couldn't be more pleased. Ken and Kathy were great hosts and we feel we gained new friends and hope our paths will cross again. Location is in a nice, quiet neighborhood within a 1/2 mile walk to the local supermarket and a local restaurant.

Wine not with Ken & Kathy? You must!

A toast to Ken & Kathy whose hospitality was gracious and quite gourmet. From the Finger Lakes Pinot Noir - who knew they made it so well? To the Vermont cheddar and yummy herb crackers, the snackage was only matched by good conversation and travel stories. In summary: salt of the earth folks you only hope you'll meet when on your Boondocking adventures. Can't thank them enough! Oh, yes, and their driveway was real nice, too!

My Privilege and Honor to meet Ken & Cathy

I arrived later than I had anticipated. Ken was the one to greet me, and he gladly made a camp fire. The next evening I met Cathy and we had a wonderful discussion. Wonderful Hosts! Enjoyed this stay!

A fun evening under the stars!

We spent a delightful evening with Ken, Cathy and the neighbors last spring on our way down to New Orleans Jazz Fest. We hope to visit this spring as we once again trek southward from the melting snowbanks of Maine

Fun Couple

We enjoyed meeting Ken and Cathy. We were able to provide some timely suggestions as they are planning a trip to Alaska this summer. Great bird watching from their boondocking spot too!


March 2018

Terrific stay

We stayed the evening of March 24th. This was our second visit with Kenskeeper and though this time there was snow on the ground, it was as pleasant and enjoyable as our first. We had a great conversation with our hosts that evening and had a quiet and peaceful sleep in our Roadtrek 190P. Thank you again.

Wonderful Hosts

Kenskeeper were our first Boondockerswelcome hosts. We were recieved like family and had time for a nice nightcap visit. We shared fishing stories and hope to have them on a return visit to our Ontario Canada cottage to dip a line or two. Power was provided and the beautiful property easily accommodated our 17.5' Hybrid trailer and SUV on the asphalt driveway. A great introduction to the Boondocking community.

kenskeeper a keeper

Kenskeeper have a beautiful private oasis that they happily share. The space they provide is very considerate of the campers needs, they were kind enough to provide power, and to share the backyard amenities. Great hosts!


July 2016

we arrived at kenskeeper after several hours of site seeing in different areas of PA. We were welcomed warmly the couple. their home and property would be a keeper in my books. they guided us in to our spot and we hooked up. we spent a pleasant few hours talking about everything. we stayed ther for 2 nights also,{of COURSE!!!!!!! We Went To HERSEY!!!!{

Welcoming couple with peaceful home

We stayed with Kenskeeper July 1, 2016. Was our first experience with boondockers welcome and we could not have asked for a better experience! Great conversation, beautiful and serene yard! Our daughter helped feed their goldfish and enjoyed the tire swing! Hope they look us up when traveling west!


April 2016

Quiet peaceful night

We stayed in March 2016 for one night in a 19' Roadtrek. We parked on a level spot and were able to plug in. Ken and Cathy were very hospitable and friendly. We hope that we can reciprocate the visit when they get to New England. Thank you.


November 2015

Fun talk!

Terrific people in a comfortable suburban neighborhood. We plugged in (much appreciated) and enjoyed a quiet night, perfect for us. Spent a few hours with them on our rig sharing wine and stories. We hope they will come and see us in Canada and look forward to seeing them again.

Wonderful place to overnight

Ken and Cathy made us feel right at home. We enjoyed interesting conversation and they even fed us dinner.

It was easy to find their place and spent a peaceful night.

First boondocking. Wonderful people and place!

Although we did not really have a chance to spend a lot of time with Ken and Cathy, we were thrilled by their welcome and availability. Ken was really helpful in showing us how to handle our camper (it was our first trip with an RV and we needed advice). He even gave us a small Bible.

The location was beautiful, the owners have a lovely garden with flowers, a fish pond and old trees. The street was really quiet and the neighbors nice. Plus all the trees were in bloom.

Harrisburg stroke us as being quiet, very clean and lovely. It is very close to Hershey, America's chocolate town.

Lovely spot, lovely people.

I had a short but comfortable stay in the driveway of Ken and Cathy's Harrisburg home. They were most welcoming and offered wine, food, and good travel advice. I highly recommend this spot and these hosts. Thank you Ken and Cathy.


October 2014

hospitality plus!

I called looking for a place in or near Harrisburg and I was so excited when I got Ken's reply. Was delayed in 'football' traffic on the I-81 but got there just as it was getting dark. Met his wife Cathy who promptly invited me to join them and friends for sushi. I had already eaten but it sounded great. I declined and got myself setup for the night. Beautiful yard and surroundings, conducive to a good night's sleep. Wakened to birds singing and squirrels chirping. Cathy feeds them all so they flock to the yard. Ken and Cathy fish in Canada yearly so we were able to compare some spots...great hosts and lovely surroundings close to amenities. Stocked up and stayed an extra night...great place fo a weary traveller....
