By requesting a stay with us you accept the Donation Policy per the Admin letter to BW membership of June 8, 2018. The following is a direct quote by Boondockers Welcome regarding power usage:
"Donation Guidelines for Guests:
If a host hasn't requested payment and you've used AC or heating, (offer $5 to $10 per night depending on the size of your rig). Offer $3 to $5 per night - especially if you stayed more than one night - if your electric use was minimal.”

Access Road Conditions

Paved 2 lane country road to our driveway, but you will need to back into (arriving) or out of (departing) my driveway.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

The RV spot has a slight slop so the longer your rig the more you may want to block it. Plenty of parking for the tow vehicle.

Great restful stay.

Great easy place to go. Lovely hosts. Spent two peaceful nights and enjoyed the area. Try out the Creswell Bakery if you have the time.

Great stay with friendly hosts

The stay was great and a perfect stopover as we traveled south from Portland. Lovely conversation on the porch with the hosts before having a nice quiet night catching up on work and a great nights sleep.

Amazing Location & Awesome Hosts

We have hosted hundreds of boondockers, but this was our first time being guests and boondocking at someone's property and we are just overwhelmed with gratitude. Paul and Brenda are lovely and we had the best time chatting with them! Their property is gorgeous and so quiet; we had a wonderful night's sleep for the first time in a long while. I hope we catch up with them down the road again someday! They are super close to the freeway and their spot is level and gorgeous!

A great jumping off spot for Eugene!

Our stay at Our Home When not Away From Home was great. The location that we parked was flat and spacious with big trees. It was quiet. We hooked up to electricity and grilled out. The hosts could not have been nicer and we really enjoyed their company. We sat in their back yard and chatted in the evening. We would definitely go there again.
