Large open grassy field, just minutes.from Lena Illinois. You can reach our location easily off of US 20. Feel free to make noise or just bask in the silence. Perfect location if you like to star gaze. Large burn pit used for bonfires. New to hosting as well to rv'ing. You can park near the house and use water or electric or go out back and boondock under the stars on a large mowed grass field. As for activities i welcome those who like outdoor sports. We are only a hop and skip from the Pecatonica rivier. 10 minutes off of US 20. Great location if you would like to go on a small local brewery tour. Most towns in and around have a local brewery. Wishful Acres is located just 4 minutes down the road on a working farm. Veteran Owned. Laid back family. 420 friendly. Relax and have fun. propane refill can be done down the road at the local farm services. I need to know if you need to dump, i have a septic.

Quiet and Relaxing

He is sweet and treated us like family. Large yard and toys for our four children to play with. Large shade tree covered our camper and vehicle and was pleasent to relax under.

Beauty in the Country

What a great relaxing overnight. Super patient communication so we connected at the best spot to drive-in. Waved me on and I parked in a lovely green mowed field. The corn next door was so high, I parked so I was shaded by it. Perfect solo traveler spot. It felt so much safer than your standard campground. Heard turkey and an owl and the chirpy sand pipers hopped about looking for dinner on the other side of the field. This is what boondocking is all about!

Nice rural location with beautiful views.

This was our first boondocker stay, and it went great. Host was very accommodating and site was level and easily accessible. Had a short chat as we arrived late, but went out for a spectacular view of the stars right before bed. Definitely recommend if in the area. Thanks!
