Unparalleled Kindness

We rolled in, exhausted, with two dogs and a toddler. Cluculz.Lake.Duo were extremely accommodating, gracious, and downright friendly. It was windy and chilly, but they still held a bonfire outside with the neighbors, so we could all visit, and our dogs had the time of their lives playing with the friendly neighborhood pack. (All the neighborhood dogs are friends.) I cannot recommend boondocking with them enough, and we definitely hope to connect with them again. After a dark couple years, it is refreshing to know that people like Cluculz.Lake.Duo exist out there in the world.

Experience and hospitality

You’d be hard pressed to meet better travelled and experienced RV-ers than Cluculz.Lake.Duo. We enjoyed swapping stories and experiences with them round the camp fire to which they kindly invited us.

Both hosts were very welcoming and anxious and that we had all we needed. The space for our RV was flat and spacious. All in all we had a wonderful experience and can’t recommend this host highly enough.

Beautiful spot. Lovely hosts.

We were warmly welcomed and hosted at this beautiful spot by the lake. Smooth drive from the main highway The site is very level and they have power and water ready for hook up. So kind! We saw eagles, loons and deer :)
We really enjoyed chatting (from a distance!) and learning about their travels to Mexico. Inspiring!
Thanks for sharing your wonderful property with us

Beautiful spot overlooking the lake

Beautiful spot overlooking the lake. Enjoyed a great evening sitting Out back and getting to know Ralph. Sorry we missed meeting Shirley. Ralph was a very gracious host and we were very appreciative of having an electrical hook up and water. We have been camping without electric for so long it was quite a treat.

Beautiful lakeside campfire!

Ralph and Shelley were super nice and welcoming, and so helpful towards us RV noobs. We really enjoyed the campfire and the chats over wine, and the quad bike with your neighbor. It was really cool that your neighbors came to join the party! We felt way more optimistic about the long journey ahead after hearing your stories. And it has been wonderful! Thank you so much Ralph and Shelley for hosting us. Hope to see you again on the way back!

Our Return Visit

After meeting this fantastic couple on our way to AK, we made it a priority visit our new found friends on our way back to the lower 48. We're glad to call them friends. We can't image them not welcoming anyone with open arms.

Wonderful hosts

Stayed two nights on our way through northern BC. Lovely spot, even in the rain. Had some great chats! We now know about an awesome restaurant in the woods thanks to our hosts! Very knowledgeable about RVing, and happy to share their tips and adventures. Definitely recommended!

Terrific Couple

Cluculz Duo were/are the perfect hosts. Our first trip through British Columbia on our way to Alaska and they couldn't have been friendlier or more welcoming. Beautiful spot just a short walk to the lake. The pull-through space was more than we could hope for, easy to get in and out. We would give them the highest recommendation for anyone passing through the area.


June 2017


We spent three nights with these wonderful people. Thet treated us like family. Also had an afternoon ride on the lake in their boat.If you are in the area and looking for a boondocking spot,look them up. You will not be disappointed.

Great Hosts

Stayed 1 night 11th july 2016, had a bit of a fright, when we arrived, & saw it was tight, to enter, our rig is, 40ft, but no problem, they saw us in,&, afterwards, took us out on, the lake on their boat, & made us vey welcome


July 2016

Great Stay

This was our first boondockers experience and it was a fantastic one. We were made very welcome and so were our dogs. The first evening our hosts provided chips and dip and we had a few drinks around the picnic table (until the thunder and rain chased us under our awning) It was like we found old friends. Many thanks for your hospitality we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and were made very comfortable with water and electricity hookups, offers to fish from their dock and a ride in their boat which did not come to pass due to inclement weather. We went out for dinner the last evening at a place on the lake which we never would have found on our own.

Wonderful people!

We stayed two nights with Shelley & Ralph at Cluculz Lake and they simply were wonderful... Welcoming, caring and funny, so we couldn't do anything else than enjoying our stay, their stories and the evenings together at the campfire. They even showed us the lake by boat. @Shelley: Your banana bread was delicious :)! Thank you so much. We had a wonderful time with you wunderful People...

One of our favorite memories!

We were on the road for over four months - Texas to Alaska. You can imagine the sights! But the best memories are the people. The Cluculz Duo were extremely welcoming and the best of hosts! We feel blessed to have met them. Their location is absolutely beautiful. Simply perfect!
