Wonderful stay!

Thank you so much for having us! We enjoyed our time with you, sharing a cocktail and floating in the lake. Parking was easy and accessible for our 65’ long “train”. A note for other guests - the telephone and electric wires strung over the access road are very low. We were tickling them with our antennas.

Fantastic Stay With An Awesome Host!

Truly loved spending some time with these beautiful people. Their property was amazing, and they went above and beyond to make sure I felt at home. Wish I could have spent more time with them, but I know we will meet again someday!

Thank you again for everything.

Checking all the boxes…

While my current RV is a little “unorthodox”… I’m riding my bicycle across the country, I was welcomed with open arms at Bobby D’s Hideout!
They provided me a hot shower, and a place to lay my head. We cracked a couple of cold ones; at dinner and solved all the world’s problems!
Thank you so much for your kind hospitality for this weary cyclists.

Great spot and hosts on the lake

Gracious hosts with a waterfront spot in the lake. We stayed one night and could not have asked for more. Electric service was welcome as it was a bit warm but we could run the AC. The hosts let us use their paddle boat once we were settled in for a quick outing on the lake. Paved and level pad for parking. Our truck camper fit with no issues. Easy access.
Can’t say enough about the hosts. Kind and generous. We had several socially distanced discussions. Enjoyed our morning tea on their rear deck.

Amazing Experience!!

This was our first Boondockers Welcome experience. Our stay was beyond amazing.
Hailees Grandma welcomed us to their home as if we were long time friends.
Beyond their friendly personalities, are the postive attributes of their location. This home is easy to find. Denise gave great directions. The driveway is level and easy to maneuver. They offer 30 amp hookup!
We so enjoyed the evening setting in their backyard sharing stories about RV life, and all of the things we have in common.
We will definitely return! Thank you so much Hailees Grandma!!
