Description

We live on 10 acres about 3 minutes from town. The parking site is in the driveway behind our house. Water and electric are located within a few feet of the space. The driveway is gravel. There are no trees along the driveway, but you are welcome to set lawn chairs up in the grass under a small tree. We are surrounded by woods on 2 sides. There may be some traffic noise from the highway, but otherwise it is very quiet with no close neighbors.

House Rules

If you have a pet, contact us first. We have 2 dogs and they are not always gracious pet hosts to other animals.
Do not park in the grass.
Quiet hours between 10pm - 7am.

Access Road Conditions

About an 1/8 of a mile of gravel off Highway 63. We have a 40' 5th wheel with a tow truck and we can turn out of the driveway with no problem. We have had a 42' motorhome here as well and had no problems turning onto the road. A large rig with a tow vehicle may have difficulty making the turn out of the driveway onto the road. We have a circle drive to use as a turn around or to pull into to back up to the parking spot. The parking spot is on gravel.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

There is parking available in the driveway.

Our first Boondockers Welcome overnight stay! Our Hosts were very welcoming and provided for our overnite.
We enjoyed our conversations with both of them and got to meet their "puppies" as we are dog lovers also. Took a walk on their country road as the sun set on their country location.

Great Missouri detour

I had a lovely drive through central Missouri to get to the location. It was a beautiful spot with a choice of places to park with electric. Friendly dogs to greet you. The host was very nice too.
I was grateful for a place to stay on the weekend of the 4th. Very restful and quiet.
I hope to pass this way again.

Great hosts and beautiful site

We enjoyed our short stay at Bella’s Backyard. The hosts were very prompt with communications about our stay, and met us when we drove down the driveway. We easily backed our 34’ fifth wheel in front of the garage on one of the most level spots we’ve had on this trip. We relaxed in the afternoon overlooking a huge, beautiful yard surrounded by trees with their friendly pup at our feet. When we left this morning, we had another chance to chat with the host. We would highly recommend this site if you are in the area.

Gracious Hosts

Lesa warmly greeted me and we had a brief but nice chat. She provided me with water to refill my tank which was great!

Unfortunately it was a bit chilly and rainy so I never had a chance to talk with the hosts a second time which made me feel awkward. I would have liked to tell them in person how thankful I am for their wonderful hospitality. I would also have loved to meet the 94 year old youngster who keeps the eight acres of lawn looking so incredible!

Great spot and even better hosts, all thumbs up from me!

Camping in the snow.

Snow started coming down just as we arrived at Bella's Backyard. The hosts helped us get parked for the night

It was still snowing in the morning so Darren and Lesa insisted that we stay to see what the weather was going to do .
Darren and Lesa were nice enough to let us stay an extra night.

The following morning the snow was over and we were back on the road .

Thanks Darren and Lesa for a great place to stay and helping us through the snow storm. If you are ever in Southeast Nebraska feel free to stay at "Living in the Country" with us.
