Wonderful first time Boondockers Welcome

A huge thank you and shout out to our hosts - it is a very special place. This was our first experience with Boondockers Welcome and I have to say it was very positive. Both our hosts came out once we were settled and introduced themselves, gave us some insights about their property, location and local information. It is a little out of the way in Merville, but with our toad it was no problem at all to get out and about. The site was super quiet with power and water available; chickens are on the property - the eggs we purchased at the gate were awesome.

The weather prior to our stay was hot with no rain for weeks. The field is tinder dry so I would recommend that one use the hose and spray the area under your rig upon arrival and if using a grill to give the area under and around your grill a good soaking prior to lighting.

All in, a great stay!!

Again, thank you hosts!

Very quiet and peaceful

Had a great stay here. We walked to trails in the nearby woods and also went down to beaches just a short drive away.

Was very glad to have an electric hook-up as my batteries are reaching their end of life.

The host was very friendly and helpful. We hope to stay here again the next time we visit this area.

Great stay!

Really enjoyed our stay. Welcoming hosts, easy communications, nice big area of land to park on with water and power hook ups. And a lot of chickens! Thanks for a great stay, we really appreciated it.

Forest surprise

A short driveway opens to a huge open field surrounded by tall, slender trees. The host was welcoming and offered us a variety of sites on the expansive property. Power & water was available. We felt comfortable leaving our trailer for the day to go and visit friends in the area.
The free range chickens were a delight to watch as they quietly foraged around the place.

All around great!

Hosts were welcoming and accommodating. There was plenty of space to maneuver our RV. We loved the peaceful tranquil setting complete with free range chickens. Awesome beach down at the end of the road to enjoy the ocean.

A wonderful place to stay

We have had 3 wonderful nites at forest edge. It is so quiet and the stars at nite are breathtaking. Lots of space and very level. We can’t wait to return in the future.

Rare gems

Rare gems - the location and the hosts. Kindly accommodated us for another night when our plans to transfer from Powell River to Campbell River didn’t work out. We were exhausted and greatly benefited from a peaceful relaxed night.

Stay at ForestEdge

We recently spent a night at Forest Edge. Large spot. The host was quite friendly, the dog greeted us. There were deer right beside our rig in the evening, and more deer beside our rig in the morning. It was a quiet, peaceful, nice spot. We very much enjoyed their fresh eggs and blueberries.

Peaceful and pleasant

Gracious hosts. Kind, helpful and generous. Once we were settled they left us to enjoy their lovely property. The chickens and deer were great neighbours, providing lots of entertainment. Would highly recommend and definitely want to stay again. Thank you Forest Edge Farm 😊

Peaceful location- 2 klm walk to beach

Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Their farm is open enough we got good sun for our solar although they do offer electric and water. We enjoyed 3 peaceful nights sleep and a feast of fresh farm eggs.
