Boondocking available on our EXTRA long driveway. Max 30 feet. Update- we can no longer take tall 5th wheels due to cable lines getting snagged at the entrance to our drive. Smaller rigs can pull-thru. Push outs okay. We prefer you do not use your loud generator due to neighbors close by. You can use our electricity or your quiet generator. Your friendly pet is welcome.
Quiet after 8pm / before 8am.
Regular neighborhood access road. You will enter on narrow driveway. Please know how to "back-it-in".
Tow parking next to rig or on street. Sorry, no tall 5th wheels, low cable lines at driveway.
We are home most days. Send us a message to check availability.

Our host was very friendly! Checkout Churchkey if you like burgers and beers. They are very close to downtown Modesto which makes it a great spot to get to everything. Their landscaping is so awesome and I wish we'd had more time to see their school bus.
We were fortunate to book and spend two nights with Hawk and Nannette on our way back to AZ. When we arrived, they showed us where was the spot we could spend the night. To our pleasant surprise, they even had outdoor bathroom/shower and dump station. The backyard was big and secure for my two dogs ran around without leash. What a great host! We will definitely stop by again when we travel along the central valley in the future! Thank you so much for your hospitality! Much appreciated! :)
Hawk and Nannette were so welcoming, and accommodating (especially given the heat of the day.)
Their yard is beautifully landscaped and decorated, which made for a relaxing evening of getting to know our hosts and the area.
Hopefully we'll be back in the area in late August for the start of the fruit season, and if we are, we would love to stay with Hawk and Nannette again.
Thanks for the awesome stay!
Spend a nice quiet night. Friendly hosts. Appreciated their hospitality.
Such generous and cool hosts. We were lucky enough to arrive on the weekend when they had some free time, and gained a great weekend of stories, cooking, bicycling and much more. They even built a shower, toilet & dump especially for their boondocking guests! We couldn't be more grateful. Thank you so much for everything!
I really enjoyed meeting Hawk and Nannette. Their driveway is perfect for RVs.
We stayed with Hawk and Nannette for one night on our way back from Sequoia. They are a really kind and helpful couple. Really loved your schoolbus :) Happy building and travels with it and thanks a lot for everything!
Couldn't have found a nicer couple people than Hawk and Nannette to stay with on our maiden boondocking voyage. We really enjoyed hanging out with them and their friends, checking out their cool eclectic art, petting their pooches, and shooting the breeze.
Thank you both very much for being so gracious and for going way over and beyond to take care of us and keep our rig safe from those tree trimmers! lol
I stay one night in Hawk's and Nannnette's driveway. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting this very kind couple who helped me, along with some friends, back out of their driveway the next morning. I will always remember them as kind and understanding, especially vis-a-vis my limited RV skills. I heartily recommend them as hosts.
They have a great little spot there and are gracious welcoming hosts. I wish I could have hung out with them both more but with Hawk's recommendations for spots that I may like to photograph I was busy and away doing my thing. His tips were great and very fruitful for what I like to take photos of.
Would totally recommend them as a stop over spot and I hope to visit them again one day.
We were on our way to Yosemite, perfectly hospitable place for overnight thanks to hawk and nannette!
Hawk & Nannette were fabulous hosts. They graciously showed us around their town & even gave us an indispensable suggestion on where to go in the next city we were visiting & were able to connect us to their friends there where we also had an awesome time. Great people, wonderful cultural experience!
Thanks again for hosting us.
Many thanks to Hosts Hawk and Nannette for making it easy for us to stay with our 30ft fifth wheel in the side yard for a night early March 2015! It was very handy to stop overnight while we were making our long way home to northern California! They said we were their 10th, so clearly they've got a good track record. We contacted them before the start of our 7-week RV tour and they were willing and volunteered useful info, and were able to arrange our welcome just an hour in advance of our eventual arrival. Cool!
