Shalamar farm stay

We had a great evening chatting with the host. Great people that were fun to talk to.


September 2021


Honey and I had a very enjoyable stay at Shalamar Farm. Steve B and his lovely wife were super hosts and it was a lot of fun visiting and getting to know them. It is a beautiful, secluded and quiet location. My best stay yet!


September 2021

Such wonderful hosts

The beautiful farm was just the beginning of this wonderful visit. Ours hosts were so friendly and helpful to these newbies! George the horse was delightful also! We unfortunately had to cut our stay short due to personal reasons, but I hope to be able to return again soon. It was seriously the best nights sleep I’ve ever had while camping.


September 2021

Country quiet and wonderful hospitality

Really enjoyed our stay. Site was perfectly level and has 50 amp and water. Quiet. Beautiful view of the sunrise. Had a nice visit with Linda and Steve on their awesome patio. Got a 6 mile run in before hitting the road on got to appreciate the county views. Our dog also enjoyed meeting the horse, George. Would definitely stay here again.


August 2021

Great spot. Great hosts. Great amenities.

We loved overnighting at Shalamar Farm. Very easy hookups made getting on the road this morning easy. Thanks.

Stellar Stay At Shalamar Farm

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Shalamar Farm albeit just for one night. From the initial communications, to the welcome hello, settling us in to our spot, wonderful evening conversation, fresh eggs and vegetables all amounted to a great stay! We look forward to keeping in touch with Steve B and Linda down the road. They are a gracious, kind and engaging duo and we're so grateful for BW allowing us the opportunity to connect with one another.


August 2021

Picturesque Setting

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this quaint farm setting in the Indiana countryside. The hosts are wonderful people who are friendly and helpful. If we are ever passing through the area again, we would definitely love to stop for a couple of days and spend some time with them. We feel blessed that they were willing to share their property with us.

August 2021

Wonderful stay

What a wonderfully quiet spot with amazing hosts. Thank you for hosting.


August 2021

Great place to stay

Very nice spot to spend some time, we truly enjoyed our stay here. The hosts were fantastic, great hospitality and a wealth of knowledge. Wish we could have spent a few more nights to continue the conversation. Will certainly stop by again if ever in the area.
P.S : Best zucchini bread ever!!! Wow

Amazing first Boondockers Welcome experience!

Loved staying at Shalamar Farm for our first Boondockers Welcome experience. We couldn't have had better hosts. From the moment of arrival, they made us feel right at home. Their property is on of the most beautiful and peaceful spots we have camped at. Thank you for the privilege of staying at your farm.


July 2021

Beautiful Place, the BEST People!

SteveB were incredibly welcoming and helpful. This was our very first Boondockers experience, and I honestly don’t know how it could have been any better. We’re so grateful to have had this experience at Shalamar Farm! Wonderful hosts!


July 2021

Lovely place, lovely hosts

A gorgeous property with two genuine and friendly hosts we really enjoyed getting to know. 50-amp service and water. Good Verizon signal and fireflies! Highly recommended.


July 2021

Great stay

We stayed here for my son’s baseball tournament. The hosts were super nice and hospitable. Would definitely stay again.


July 2021

Stop in emergency

The Shalamar was the perfect stop. The host were very accommodating to us during unplanned delay in our travel. It was a great place for us all to stretch our legs. The highlight for my kids was the horse that greeted us.


July 2021


Thank you so much for your hospitality. Great conversation! Will be back for a longer stay! Thank you!


July 2021

Just can't get enough

Extended my stay an additional night because I felt so comfortable with these two hosts! What a wonderful and welcoming spot. I will make it a point to return when I ever traverse this beautiful country again.


July 2021

NOTHING beats this place

The hosts are as nice as can be, we definitely hope to be back again or meet up on the road! Don’t forget if you are coming from the west… they are on Eastern Standard Time!


July 2021

Fabulous stay

There is NOTHING bad about this stay! I would not have wanted to be anywhere else for the 4th of July! Thank you soooo much!!


July 2021

Let me tell you something...

Ive been traveling the USA and joined BW which has been useful..and it has been..BUT this stay has completely changed my entire outlook and how much it has changed my cross country experience...Ive now met AMAZING PEOPLE and lifetime friends...the HOSTS were so amazing and friendly. A very peaceful spot and having multiple BW guests when I arrived we all were immediately fast friends. We all shared a meal together multiple nights, hookups were easy and everything accessible. I loved the little town on the first morning, and have gone on adventures with the other guests. I cant tell you enough in words how fun and comfortable and part of an actual "experience" this stay has been. These two hosts + the other guests staying + the enviornment and surrounding area = SupercalifragalisticexpialiD'Amazing. Thank you so much S&L for allowing my stay and even letting me make an additional reservation after my first... I would highly recommend this location especially if you want the communal experience of great people..great food..and a stay you wont want to end.


June 2021

Our FIRST Boondocks experience with Steve and Linda!

This wonderful couple couldn't have been any more accommodating! Their farm is so beautiful and peaceful. We, being first-timers, they were very knowledgeable and helpful for future Boondocking stays. Their generousity included good water and electricity. Their "barn"cats are friendly and love to visit. We hope to stop by again.


June 2021

Fantastic: highly recommend Shalamar Farm

Beautiful quiet farm stay location. Excellent hosts. Convenient: just 5-10 minutes from I-65. Can't say enough great things about our stay at Shalamar Farms.


May 2021

Another Stay Complete

The grounds look beautiful. Welcomed once again by George the horse.


May 2021

An incredible place to stay!

The hosts S. and L. are not only kind, accommodating and cool - they know camping!
This place looks even better in person than the great pictures.
Beautiful, clean and safe place to rest and recharge - being my first Boondockers stay, the bar is high now.
I can’t wait to stay here again.


April 2021

Quiet and Convenient

This was our
Second stay at Shalamar. Hosts were there to greet us with a smile and some freshly made
Peanut clusters. Nice spot close
to the interstate. If you are
Coming from the south stay with the interstate. We followed lazy wazy and she brought us through 40
some miles of backroads. Very scenic and not a problem pulling the little TT. Would not have been fun in the 5th wheel. Look forward
To seeing you in Michigan. Thank you for opening your beautiful property to us. Jane & Andy


March 2021

Bit of Heaven

Our hosts went above and beyond our expectations in every way. So accommodating. Very friendly and such a lovely farm. Plan to return. Miss conversing with people.


March 2021

Wonderful experience....again!

We stayed at Shalamar Farm for the second time on our trip back to Chicago. They provide the experience we hoped for when decided to RV. Wonderful couple, beautiful farm and incredibly welcoming. We could not expect a better overnight experience. And... they have full hookups. Made both the beginning and end or our long vacation memorable. Steve and Linda have set the bar for what a Boondockers Welcome experience should be. We will definitely return!


March 2021

Another Stay in the Books...

Thank you again for the hospitality. Like always our stay was pleasant, relaxing, and restful. See you in the summer.


February 2021

Another fun time!

Thank you again for hosting at Shalamar. This has to be one of the best places we have stayed while traveling across the country. Hope to see you again down the road.


February 2021

Another great visit at Shalamar!

Thank you again for the opportunity to stay at your place. Steve was a great help with the issue I had with our coach. Thank you again, and see you next time.


January 2021

Steve and Linda were wonderful host!

We could not have had a better experience. This was our first stay with Boondockers, it could not have been better. The location is beautiful, the host were very helpful, and the animals were so sweet. We will be back!!


January 2021

Amazing Experience!

I couldn't have hoped for a better! The hosts on this beautiful, peaceful property welcomed us like friends. They greeted us, helped us park and hook up. They shared advice, encouragement, smiles and offered assistance with anything that might come up. We instantly felt relaxed and welcomed. I would go out of my way to stay here again!


December 2020

Gracious Hosts!

We arrived on a snowy day and both Linda and Steve were out to help us bring our RV onto their beautiful property. Both of their kitties were out to welcome us too. We immediately felt at home and wish COVID-19 wasn’t a barrier as we would have liked to have spent more time with this most gracious couple.. They provided full hook ups for a very nominal fee, and truly made you feel very welcome in every way.
Their property is lovely, if you stay you will want to return.
Oh and be sure to say hello to George the horse!


November 2020

Excellent hosts and Location

We arrived shortly before dark and were met with big smiles and great enthusiasm, super good communication. George their quarter horse was also happy for the company. Beautiful setting, full hookup and super close to the interstate yet super quiet. Highly recommend.


October 2020

Perfect time at Shalamar Farm

We only had one nights stay, wish we had stayed longer! Nice to have full hookups and perfectly level spot. We had a very nice socially distanced conversation with our hosts who met us and showed us where to park And hook up. Super nice people-and gorgeous home and farm. We loved watching George their quarter horse run around in the morning. Hope to visit again someday and have more time conversing. Thanks again to our gracious hosts.


September 2020

Our special place!

We have to leave our primary campground every 2 weeks for 2 days Shalamar Farm is perfect landing spot with wonderful hosts!


September 2020

George on the Farm

George, the horse, and his humans, were wonderful hosts on a beautiful homestead. The humans were warm and welcoming, supplying full hookups, if needed. One if my favorite places!


August 2020

Beautiful property, great people

This was our first Boonedocking experience. Linda and Steve were fantastic. I felt like I could talk to Linda forever. She left me with some very wise advice. The property is so gorgeous. George greeted us as did the kitties. All put up with our puppy who’s new to camping. This being our first stay ever, I wondered, ‘What do people get out of hosting? Why do they do it?’ I get it. Even with a one night stay, I feel I had an experience I would remember For a long time that makes me think about hosting myself. Thanks to you both!!


August 2020

Thank you George, Leroy and Lowell!

Beautiful place with all the comforts you need for a good nights sleep. Fantastic hosts that we enjoyed some social time with before heading over to their garden and picking a few ripe tomatoes.

Wonderful property with great views and a gorgeous sunset.

And then there was George who was a great host sharing his home and greeting us goodnight and good morning and sweet furry brothers Lowell and Leroy.

Hope to stop by again! Enjoy your camping time as well - just get out there and have fun and make wonderful memories!


August 2020

Great experience

We had an excellent time. Thank you for being so awesome. We loved our morning chat. Safe travels


August 2020

Shalamar Farm is pure love

We met this lovely couple along our adventure crossing the country, we had so much fun! Their cats and the horse are so pretty and friendly! Wait, the fresh eggs are unforgettable! We walked around their land and talked about so much stuff, I hope we can meet more people like them around, they are just amazing. Just a reminder: We'll be back soon! Haha :)


August 2020

Chillaxin at the farm

It’s our spot when we have to leave every 14 days from county park, we are full timers. The hosts are wonderful people!


August 2020

Super nice

Can't recommend these hosts enough! They were super friendly and accomodating. Quiet country location. I would stay here again in a heartbeat (and probably will!).


August 2020

Green Acres Resort

Equine elegance awaits you in central Indiana. The Shalamar Farm estate is carpeted by meticulously groomed lush green fields with a balance of modern and traditional farm style. The new home is completely encircled with a resort-style covered deck with a screened section perfect for an evening retreat with cool beverages in the summer. The welcoming and gracious hosts gave us a tour of the property, invited us over for a drink on their deck, and allowed us to pick a bundle of tomatoes and strawberries from their garden. A friendly horse lives close to the campsite in a wide green pasture with two of his own apple trees and will likely run up to greet you with a kiss on the hand. Full hook-ups provided at your campsite are a relief from the warm summer sun and are worth the small fee to enjoy cool air and a relaxing shower. The quiet combination of distant, soothing country sounds, farm fresh air, on a modern setting makes Shalamar Farm a compelling attraction for your next Boondockers Welcome stay.


August 2020

What a wonderful couple!

We really enjoyed our stay at Shalamar Farm. The experience was made more enjoyable because of the hospitality by the hosts. You will not find a more enjoyable couple to spend some time with.
In addition to the hosts, their farm was very relaxing and we were immediately put at ease after a long day of driving. If our travels ever take us to Indiana (and I’m sure they will), we will be sure to stop by for another restful stay!


July 2020

Enjoyed our stay

Great hosts!


July 2020

Welcoming Hosts

The hosts were welcoming and came out to help us make the turn with our 40' 5th wheel and get hooked up. The spot was level and there was no need to unhitch the truck for an overnight stay. Full hookups were wonderful as the temperature was hot! Enjoyed the view of the pasture and the horse. Would stay here again.


June 2020

Great stay

Steve & Linda were excellent hosts! We enjoyed the serene setting. It allowed us to catch our breath after taking care of aged parents experiencing health concerns. Enjoyed seeing George the horse from our windows and the beautiful green pasture he grazed through. Having FULL HOOKUPS (50 amp), was an added bonus! We have to leave our park every 14 days so this was a great landing spot! Highly recommend.


June 2020

Great hosts!

Laid back farm to enjoy the beauty of farm life! We enjoyed our hosts Steve & Linda as well as George, the horse, and two barn cats! Very pleasant and thankful for FULL hookups! We hope to return!


April 2020

Nice Are

Visually area and and good hookups. Friendly hosts, wish we could have had more contact with them but this was during the Covid-19 isolation. Boondockers Welcome has been great for us as all the RV parks are closed and we are Full Timers trying to get to a Workamping job several states away.
In addition to the great hosts there is George their horse. Wish I could have spent more time with him!
