Welcome to Fruitland, Idaho. We are located right on the Oregon / Idaho border, just off of I84. We are about 50 miles west of Boise, Idaho. Idaho and Eastern Oregon offer miles and miles of beautiful country, from high desert to high mountains and western forest. If you are visiting the area, or just passing through, maybe we could help you with your travel plans.
We live on 5 acres on the outskirts of town. Surrounded by agriculture fields but homes and subdivisions within sight. Ontario, Oregon is just across Snake River from Fruitland. Ontario offers a Walmart and most all the services you might need.
We would appreciate common courtesy. So far everyone who has Boondocked with us have been wonderful!!
We have a couple different options for parking your RV. They require some tight turns and might require some backing to get turned around. We live down a private gravel lane on the outskirts of town. I am able to maneuver my 36 foot 5th wheel around on our property. Electricity is 15 amp only with extension cord. If you check out our pictures you will see our driveway. The big turn around is about 100 feet by 75 feet so access is not bad, but turning a big 5th wheel around does take some maneuvering. Road into our place is narrow gravel lane. You will have to make some very tight turns, so setting up your approach is important.
All parking will be off the road on our property. Our property sits back off the road.
We love to travel ourselves so availability varies a great deal. You just need to contact us to see if we will be available. Winters can be very cold at times, so December through February are pretty iffy unless you just need a place to park overnight. We would love to meet you so drop us a line if you are traveling through our area.
Hells Canyon, McCall Idaho, Sumpter Oregon all just a days drive away.
Didn't get to send them a reference when we stayed with them a year ago we were new and didn't know how they have a great place and we really liked staying there, our dog was able to run. Sorry it took so long to give them a reference
Jerry and Sue were so welcoming and nice. We felt like we had known them forever.
They were right out there to greet us, Jerry came right out with an extension cord to hook us up. Sue gave us a bag of goodies and we sat and visited for awhile. Later she came over with fresh cut melon.
We would recommend their Boondockers space to all.
Very nice couple
Jerry and Sue are fabulous. They met us in the driveway , showed us where to set up, and gave us the run of the place (aka make yourselves at home)! In a non-COVID-19 environment, we would. Have mingled, chatted, sipped a cool libation (or two), and gotten acquainted. However, we couldn’t do it at this time, but we did get to chat for a little bit as we arrived.
Both were as friendly as if we were neighbors, and for the night, we were. Excellent host with a spot for the weary traveler to rest their bones.
Thanks again new friends! We’ll be seeing you again!!!
WE LOVED OUR TIME WITH JERRYANDSUE!
From the very first second we met them, we felt so incredibly welcome on their beautiful property <3.
Super beautiful and convenient space in a peaceful setting. Their land is lovely--but their personalities are even more so! They greeted us with warm (mask-covered) smiles, and better yet--muffins and cookies, and even treats for our sweet doggo. We felt so comfortable and safe there--not an easy thing for folks to feel during a pandemic. We just adore them, and look forward to hopefully returning the favor and warmth someday soon!
Greeted with smiles and Halloween candy!
Great couple. Quiet. Enjoyed hearing the cows. Thank you!!
What a wonderful night we spent at this location. Beautiful fields surrounded us and was so quiet. We were greeted with snacks as we arrived and guided to our spot. Definitely recommend this location and hope to stop again sometime!
JerryandSue were truly gracious and helpful. We practiced safe boondocking in this time of COVID, and we were very grateful to them for their hospitality. Their spot was quiet, easily accessible from the highway, and a great place for the last night of our 3-month road trip. THANK YOU!
Great spot, very friendly and welcoming hosts! This was our fourth stay, and we will be back again!
Friendly hosts with vary helpful accommodations.
Directions made it easy to find and left felling we had a safe stay worth sharing.

Last night was our third stay with Jerry and Sue, and it felt just like a visit with old friends! The place is surrounded by agricultural land, which makes it quiet and peaceful. Jerry and Sue were not home when we arrived, but we knew the drill and got set up quickly. Jerry had left an extension cord out to plug into our camper. Patty and I had put our lawn chairs out and shortly after they got home, Jerry got his own lawn chair and sat down with us. We had a great time catching up! Sue brought out some muffins for our breakfast. HIGHLY recommended!
both jerry and sue are great people.wish we had more time to talk with them. very quiet location.maybe see them again sometime.
Very nice hosts, eager to help us out. Had a comfy short visit.
Thanks Jerry & Sue.
Although we broke down and could not stay with Jerry and Sue, they were very nice to communicate with and we just had to leave a thumbs up 👍 and a big smile 😃 for their friendly welcome and offer of help. Great folks. Thank you again and we hope to meet sometime down the road.
Thank you SO much for your hospitality and the goodies you provided us. It was GREAT to meet you and visit for a while after a long day on the road. We hope you will visit us if you visit us if you ever get to the Rochester, NY area.
We had a wonderful stay at Jerryand Sue's lovely place! They were friendly and helpful and had plenty of room to stretch out.
Would we come back again! You better believe it! Thanks for you hospitality, JerryandSue! :-)
Lovely hospitable couple. Nothing a problem. Cute little town with great kids park and splash park opposite a laundromat.
We had a great stay with Jerry&Sue. They were very helpful and friendly. We would stay with them again if we are ever in the area.
Jerry and Sue were completely accommodating nice semi shady boondocking spot out in the farmland. Filled my freshwater tank at their well. Perfect spot. Neighbor's dogs penned up outside and bark a lot but otherwise 5 stars!
JerryAndSue were such wonderful hosts. I could tell their spot was just so grand, as we were chasing nice weather. Electric and water in peaceful, PEACEFUL farm-type surroundings, on the edge of a little town - a mile across the Snake River to Ontario and all the amenities one would need.
We opted to stay the maximum days here. And they graciously accepted. Hope to return again someday.
We stayed with Jerry and Sue back in November on our way down to Arizona, and again with them last night on our way back home. We were greeted with Sue's effusive smile on arrival which truly told us we were welcome back without any words! These are genuinely nice people and wonderful BW hosts. It was like a reunion with old friends!
Quick overnight stay at Jerry and Sue's. Beautiful property on farmland, gorgeous and peaceful. We had a warm welcome and felt very safe and comfortable. Loved the treats! Appreciated their kindness and assistance in getting set up. Kind and knowledgeable couple. Highly recommend! So grateful!
We found a free dump station at the Maverick in Payette not too far.
Propane in Fruitland at the Chevron.
Pilot gas station in Fruitland.
We could not find their house number, but once we found out via texting with Jerry that their house was not directly on the street but down a lane, we drove down the lane. Jerry was there to greet us and help us get situated on their property. Jerry then hooked us up to electricity. Above and beyond, Sue brought out a plate of cookies and two blueberry muffins for us and gave us the WiFi password! After dinner, we had a wonderful visit over a glass of wine in their living room. The site, only a few miles off I-84, is located among farm fields, and was very peaceful and quiet. This we hope will be our go-to site on our annual travels between Washington State and Arizona. Highly recommended!
Want to thank you again for your both of your kindnessness, the wonderful treats, the ride to Walmart, and the pleasant spot in the trees.
Recommend these hosts.
Hope you folks are feeling much better VERY soon!
What a welcoming and wonderful couple, they happened to be sick while we were there but still met us outside when we arrived, helped us get in and out, would definitely stop by again!
Jerry greeted us as we arrived and welcomed us to his place. Unfortunately Sue was not feeling well so we did not get a chance to meet her. We spend a relaxing night at their place. We heartily recommend Jerry and Sue as hosts.
Very kind Hosts with a warm welcome and gracious amenities. Beautiful and peaceful spot on their property, overlooking the fields. They were busy with family yet still they accepted my request and welcomed me to their home. Also offered to share some tomatos from their garden. An nice overnight for this solo traveler.
Fully Reccomend them.
This location was easy to find and close to the highway, but far enough off to be very quiet. Jerry and Sue and Sunni were sweet and helpful. Sadie loved being off leash and meeting another old dog. Great hospitality!
We were greeted with cookies! It is a nice quiet setting among the alfalfa fields, yet very close to a small town for errands. JerryandSue were gracious and helped us on our way as we were traveling through and only stopped for one night.
Did you ever meet someone for the first time and feel deep
inside that you've known them forever?
Well, that was our experience with these two special people.
They greeted us with open arms, a dish of delicious goodies,
helped us set up for the evening, and then invited us to join
them on their beautiful backyard deck.
We laughed, we joked, went from one meaning conversation
to the next with never a lul or dull moment well into the evening.
In the morning they were there again, with muscle and atv, to
help get us turned around and wish us a bon voyage.
It was sad to leave, but we look forward the day when we can
pick up where we left off!!!
Jerry and Sue were very gracious hosts. Jerry sent me great directions to their property and our site was very convenient. We sat on their back deck and talked for several hours. Their home is located in between farm fields; very peaceful. A fun time
Snow to the north, snow to the west, snow to the east, somehow These two managed a dry driveway. Much appreciated night and the treats were yummy. Thanks guys.
Jerry & Sue are very outgoing, it was a real pleasure to meet them. We look forward to seeing them again. Thanks for hosting us, we really enjoyed our visit.
We are very glad to visit Jerry and Sue on our trip to Southern Utah. They let us stay for two nights at their beautiful property in Fruitland, Idaho and even baked for us cupcakes. Tasted very good. If we come back to the area we would be happy to stay with them again.
Not only were Sue and Jerry very warm and welcoming but they provide such a peaceful place to relax and unwind. Greg and I really enjoyed our time with Sue and Jerry and very much hope they one day can make their way up here!
