Bernie was the most gracious host! Greeted us upon arrival and showed his wonderful secluded spot for our overnight stay. Not really boondocking. He provides electric, water, even a pump out. Helped us get backed in. Beautiful location beside a creek. Will definitely stop by again if we are in the area. Thanks again! 😃😃😃
Beautiful rural location only minutes away from big city resources.
Even better, our hosts were genuinely interested in our experiences, and we in theirs, even though quite different. Makes for fun, easy conversation, whether standing in the woods or sharing a nice dinner outing.
Thanks again to the Hosts. The Hosts are delightful and the parking is amazing.
Although it was the end of August, we slept with no AC and the windows open. We slept so well. Birds, crickets, and night time sounds.
This was our first BOONDOCKING experience and we can’t imagine anything Better. Bernie and Rita were the sweetest and went over and above to make sure we had all we needed. Their spot is so beautiful and very private just down hill from their home, facing a creek. They provide all you would need We will look forward to seeing them again.
Right by Union Cemetery, Lafayette, IN
Would love to go by every trip to my folks.
Such a perfect spot for us.
Unbelievable site! Totally secluded, right by a nice creek, full hook ups (sewer, water, 20/50 amp electric), freshly mowed lawn, and fireflies! Could not ask for more! Watch out though, Google led us wrong and landed is 30 miles west of where we should have been. The map link on the website is correct, typing it in by hand steered us wrong. This place is definitely worth the stop so do your mapping right.
What a blessing for us to find this place! The owners are the most hospitable people that we have ever met. This was our first Boondocking experience, and I really don't think we will ever be able to find another place as nice as this. This is a beautiful peaceful groomed spot along an awesome river. Hearing the river flowing and the birds singing, was just what the doctor ordered for each of us. Bernie even took the time to help me "the rookie", with my different RV issues. He went above and way beyond in getting his tools to repair an audio problem that I was having. If you have a chance, take the time and stop here. IT IS AMAZING!
Our Hosts gave us a warm welcome and helped us preview the parking spot. My jaw dropped! It is amazing. Green Grass, Level Gravel Parking with Full Hookups, and creekside with birds, and critters.
After dinner, we sat with the host and shared stories of the road.
What a wonderful experience.
We had enjoyable time at Bernie and Rita's. Bernie gave us a tour of their beautiful poperty and was a great host.
They even gave us electricity if we needed it. I brewed coffee in the morning which was wonderful. Such a beautiful area in Indiana.
Bill thanks Bernie for the shared conversations and great directions.
Bernie was a wonderful host!
He has put so much work and love into creating the perfect stopover for boondockers!
Buck Creek is so peaceful and quiet!
Thanks so much!
Arriving from Oz on our 6 month road trip we had our first experience with Boon-dockers Welcome.Our first night stay with Bernie and Rita Fisher in Lafayette. They were wonderful hosts and made us feel really welcome with the beautiful spot we were situated at and are looking at stopping there again on our return journey in September before we head back to Oz. We highly recommend this stopover, you will not be disappointed.
Great host ! Very helpful ! Hope to see more of this spot again ,as our stay was only overnight .
We had a great time at BFISHE's property. The accommodations were class A, and absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed the creek, and fished everyday. The host was fantastic as well, and we enjoyed getting to know him better as we had the opportunity to talk. We highly recommend anyone to stay here, you will really enjoy the peace and serenity of this beautiful site.
BFISHE were great hosts ! We felt welcomed as soon as we arrived and you would be hard pressed to find a better spot for your rv. He even invited me to fish and caught a few channel catfishes for me (!!), which are delicious by the way. He even graciously became our private tour guide to the city of Lafayette and we discovered frozen custard. All in all, they are very generous and interesting people and we absolutely loved our stay at their place. Thanks a lot !

The farm land in this area is beautiful. It is either planted or mowed everything appears landscaped. We where only able to stay one night but hopefully we will be able to pass through the area and drop in again. BFISHE is a great host I did learn the(B)in BFISHE stands for BIG although we didn't get to see one (lol).
We highly recommend this boondocking spot for a perfect stay by a little creek, where you can enjoy all the nice stories and adventures of the owner! :)
We've been treated like family by the host, if you're looking for quality time you have to stop there!!!
Again and again HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Our host greeted us with open arms and lead us to a most captivating scenery. We were able to meet his dogs and we had a very welcoming stay. We would love to stay again next year.
These hosts could not have been nicer and what an absolutely lovely place! He made room for us in the drive since his brother in law was staying in the spot by the river (we thought about pushing him in hehe) but that spot was still wonderful.
HH allow us to meet the most amazing and wonderful people while staying at places campgrounds cannot begin to compare.
I did not get to stay here due to other circumstances, but wanted to say how accommodating and willing this fellow rver was to help me out. Thanks again!
I can't say enough how lovely a spot this was and what gracious hosts BFISHE were! The site is right on a river with big gorgeous trees everywhere! I felt like we were at a private campground! We hit a few snags but Bernie helped us out! If you are ever in need of a spot for the night and are near this location, do it!! I hope see them again!
Thank you to BFISHE-the kindest of hosts. This spot was a hidden gem for our family. It gave us a safe, peaceful place to sleep and a lovely view to wake up to. Top notch! Thanks again!
Very hospitable hosts. Quiet pretty place on river. Highly recommended.
Wonderful hosts with warm friendliness. The site is second to non with quiet water running right outside your door. Beautiful hardwood trees with rustling leaves over shadowing a picnic table and peaceful walking path. Our hosts greeted us with a smile and helpful hints for pulling in. We enjoyed a look at the town and shared common interests. We planned on staying only one night but the quiet, along with our great hosts enticed us to stay a second night, with pleasure! While we have hosted many travelers, this was our first Boondockers stay at someone elses site. We will certainly Boondock again and will return to BFISHE, if they will have us :) I'm sure they would be great guests as well.
We have been spoiled by our stay with BFISHE. The spot along the creek is absolutely gorgeous and better than most campgrounds we've come across. The spot is level, paved and there's plenty of well manicured grass for our dog to run around in. Our host was absolutely wonderful. We had some great conversations and wish we could have stayed longer. If you get a chance to stay here, you are in for a special treat. Thank you again BFISHE for having us and making this amazing spot available for others to enjoy.
We spent 1 night at the Bfishe property. It's exactly as noted in their description. So quiet, peaceful and private. Our hosts were very friendly and helped us get hooked up. Water, power and dump are just as you would find it at the best RV parks. Picnic table, fire pit and beautiful view of the creek. We watched several ppl kayaking & canoeing on the creek. Really enjoyed talking with our host and learning about other parks and organizations for RVers. Will definitely boondock here again if in the area. Perfect!
Gracious hosts and a perfect location to rest and recharge. We felt very welcome. This was our first experience staying at a 'boondockerswelcome' host property, and they've set the bar very high for everyone else. Thanks!
We stayed a few nights along the creek at this property. He has the place set up RIGHT. Sewage, water, and electricity with a level pad and a nice big turn around. The host is super nice. He helped me find a local RV place to replace a leaking water valve. Everything about this stop was nice. Great hosts.
We recently enjoyed "boondocking with Bernie". Wonderfull accommodations on the creek. We were treated to watching an Eagle soar up stream.
I typed up a recommendation a few weeks ago, but we were having trouble with internet connections, so I will post again. We had a great time staying with Bernie and Rita! They are the nicest folks you would ever want to meet! Bernie has a beautiful set up for camping along the river behind his house. It is like having your own private campground. This was our first boondockers welcome experience and we were extremely happy to have joined this group! We stayed two nights and hiked at Turkey Run State park and then spent some time in Downtown Lafayette. We had a blast and couldn't have asked for better hosts.
Thanks again Bernie and Rita for hosting us. Sorry this is late in coming, but I thought my first post had gone through! We are in Texas now, staying with a friend and finally have decent internet access!

An amazing location,
Our time at "BFISHE" was short unfortunately. We came in the evening and were gone early in the morning. With that said, I wish we could've stayed here longer.
The site's location (next to a creek) is incredibly beautiful and serene. What an amazing place. I especially enjoyed a quick cup of joe in the morning along the banks of the river / creek watching the birds.
Couldn't have asked for more friendly people to have host us.
Would HIGHLY recommend staying here, and if coming back through again I would definitely like to be a guest again as well. Thank you again for your hospitality!
I simply can't imagine being made to feel more welcome. I hesitate to say how welcome or share details for fear future guests might expect too much! Your hosts here are very nice folks. The location by the creek is simply wonderful and it's very convenient to Lafayette. I highly recommend this spot.
What an awesome place to stop. I felt completely welcome and secure. I am a woman traveling alone and that is an added plus. The site was fantastic, very serene. Bernie was so friendly and the 3 Yorkies are so very cute! Thanks Bernie and Rita!!!
This has to be one of the best stops anywhere on this site. Parking spot is totally secluded by a creek with 20/30/50 amp avail, water, dump. The folks were so nice, it was hard to justify leaving.
