This is a quaint little community about 10 minutes outside of a local college town. If you're in the area, chances are you know more about it than I can put here. If you don't, feel free to ask. We hope you enjoy your stay here.
Pets are welcome as long as they are 100% (not 99.9%) safe for small kids. Also, their poop is your poop. Not ours. :) Aaaaaalso, I’m allergic to rodents (as cute as those rascals are) so don’t ask me to hold your pet rat. I’ll want to. Then I will. Then I won’t be able to open my eyes for three days. Thanks!
We hope your travels are enjoyable and safe.
While the Covid-19 pandemic is active and a threat to so many, we ask that safe practices are observed (social distancing, good hygiene/disinfecting common surfaces which are touched, masks where in close proximity — especially indoors or in enclosed spaces, openly and clearly communicating any potential illness or symptoms, etc). We don’t have a zero tolerance policy which would bar those who have symptoms or possible exposure from staying here, but we do need you to know in the strongest possible terms that we expect clear and open communication about your health and wellness. This will allow all of us to operate in an open, cooperative environment, where all of us are best prepared to keep ourselves healthy, and to help each other should any extraordinary needs arise.
Be respectful with neighbors, our kids/family members, and people going on morning walks and bike rides past our little place. If they’re assholes or throw pigeon poop at you, then this is an obvious exception to the above instruction.
Don’t poop in places I don’t want you pooping. This means pretty much nowhere on my property except your rig. By pretty much, I mean just poop in your own toilet. I think that’s best for everyone.
We kindly request a $10 donation per each <24hr period, and $15 if any services are needed. This allows to get rich beyond our wildest dreams from simply offering a parking spot to passers by. No, really, we are just shy of breaking a billion this year alone. It’s a pretty sweet gig. 100% Highly recommended.
Also, it allows us to buy more adapters, cables, hoses, fittings, and even occasional beers for us and/or our guests. And billion dollar yachts for our trips to the south of France.
And lastly, if you want, need, or smell anything delicious or disturbing — and I cannot stress this enough — communication is key. JUST ASK!!! We want your stay to be wonderful. Our property is simple but spacious. That said, there’s a lot of wellness that tends to happen here. So please allow us to hear what your experience is while you’re here. I’ve only gotten one marginally, slightly snarky/passive-aggressive “negative” review, and I won’t go into that. But let me say, if you leave here upset, it’s probably your fault. Or you met my cave troll of a mother-in-law and she (understandably) made you wish humans weren’t a thing. But as long as MIL wasn’t involved, I’d venture to guess it’s your own damn fault for leaving unsatisfied. But I have no basis in fact to back that up, since we basically always get glowing reviews and have fun engagements.
The beer’s kicking in, so I think it’s time for this good little boy to sign off before I start making even less sense.
Thanks for staying with us, and for sharing a part of your journey with us! We are excited for you to join us and hope you enjoy your stay!
If you’re coming from Salt Lake, go through Hyrum, and NOT the road that passes through Mount Sterling and over a dirt road. Basically, follow populated/paved roads leading into populated areas rather than ultra rural roads. There’s a paved route, and a dirt road/unpaved way. Always choose the PAVED ROADS options, and be sure to LOOK AHEAD on maps. Any unpaved or unmanaged road is *your* choice, and your doom. I will not airlift your rig our of some backwood way if you disregard this instruction. :)
Host was extremely friendly and hospitable! The scenery is gorgeous and definitely would stay again.
What an awesome setting to enjoy a quite warm sunset and misty cool Mornin sunrise. Horses fenced on either side of the well leveled pasture we set up camp on. Was able to briefly get acquainted with Ron and his family. Delightful and an absolutely precious gracious family! One of our highlights was the opportunity to try some of their “Trash Nuts”! A healthy, tantalizing smoke flavored almond that leaves you begging for more. My mouth waters remembering them!
PLEASE, PLEASE read and re-read the notes on accessing their property....it’s EASY IF YOU FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS....however, if you venture off it, as I did, and let Siri direct you (if you’re coming from the south as we did), she will have you turning into a ranchers pasture back in the hills! LOL, so glad the rancher said, “That away son!” A wee bit of a delay, however, I wish I had followed those directions better to say the least. ENJOY and we’ll be returning often!!!
It was a pleasure to meet Boonwalker, who went out of his way to accommodate me. The town of Paradise was beautiful this October and uniquely secluded. As mentioned on the host page, the only real way to approach is from the north through Hyrum. I took the road south to leave, and it was a horrible road, although I did make it with my trailer intact. The mountain range to the east is good for hiking and biking.
Our host was very accommodating. Since we didn't need any electricity, he let us park in his back lot any direction we wanted, so we could orient our windows to have a great view of the mountains. It was a great base for exploring some of the beautiful fall colors in the area.
Would definitely recommend this site. Super friendly people with 15amp hookups and water if needed. Was a cute little spot with good privacy but also great access right off the road :)
Boonwalker was very helpful in helping us get set up for the night. When we arrived we realized that we were having transmission problems and he was very kind and understanding. Thanks again for letting us stay at your house!
Our host was gracious and friendly. He helped us park our trailer. We had a nice Mountain View in a quiet area. We enjoyed visiting with the children. Great stay We’d definitely come back.
We had a good nights rest in a quiet neighborhood. We parked in the driveway spot and did have to use a little bit of leveling blocks. Unfortunately we did not get to meet our host as they were out of town. But they were very responsive in answering all our questions and texts. Thank you for allowing us to stay on our journey.
Great host. Beautiful views. Easy access to parking spot. Quite peaceful nights rest.
