We have 40 acres in the upper Yampa River valley with panoramic views and clean mountain air and water. No shade to speak of, but at this elevation it's never terribly hot or humid.
BBQ and fire ring use are dictated by fire danger, and may or may not be allowed according to conditions.
We have excellent deep-well water to fill tanks.
Limited generator use may be allowed depending on size / noise and exact parking location. We have a very scenic remote area where generators would almost certainly be allowed.
Children of all ages are always welcome.
Dogs are always welcome, especially those who remind their humans to help out with tootsie roll patrol.
Access is via 2 miles of good gravel road. To get to the higher sites with even better views, road is dirt and slightly rough but doable in most cars.
Plenty of room to unhitch and tour with tow vehicle
We're home a lot (it's a nice place to be) especially in the summer, but we're planning some trips so check our calendar or contact us for availability..
Steamboat Springs is the county seat, 35 miles away. The Flattops Wilderness is out your window, and the Colorado River is 20 miles away.
The town of Yampa has local color and history, and an excellent restaurant--The Antlers Café and Bar, in season.
We had such a nice time at this location! The hosts were so welcoming and showed us a great place at the top of their property with the most amazing views! And it was so quiet. They are a really neat couple - wish we could have spent more time chatting with them but we'll be back!
We were so sad we couldn’t stay more than one night! The hosts were so welcoming! I especially enjoyed their new puppy dogs! Wonderful stay!
Wow. Where do I even start. Being this was my official launch into the nomadic world of lifestyle living and also my first stay with a BoondockersWelcome.com host, I could not have asked for a better experience. Tim and Dana are so warm, friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to included me in so many of their daily activities including awesome hikes on their vast and beautiful property, an open mike night at the local bar with Tim's incredible guitar playing and humorous song selection, and many wonderful and enriching conversations. And to top it off, a constant comical entertainment from their super smart dog Woody and puppies Bessie, Jasper & Roscoe — my own one year old pup Lily played and ran freely and endlessly like never before!
I would encourage anyone to make the trip to their place even if you just make it a destination. You'll come away feeling like you made friends for life. I will definitely be back!

What a beautiful view we had. Great conversation and a wonderful visit with our hosts three new puppies. We did not have time to hike and explore the valley but will the next time we are in the area.
The Trowlands are perfect hosts and the countryside is beautiful!
They helped us level our camper and invited us to watch hummingbirds on their front porch, and the sunset over the hills! They were very accommodating but beyond that warm, funny and interesting! And they enjoyed having our kids around, you could tell. :-) We loved our stay with them and would be easily enticed for a return visit!
Thank you so much for everything! We enjoyed our stay and visiting with you!

Tim and Dana are fantastic hosts! Their property is beautiful with stunning views, and more hummingbirds than you could imagine. Tim was a huge help with a small leak in our hot water heater, and answered all my questions about backpacking. Dana took my wife and our daughter on a hike to search for wild mushrooms, they had a blast! The night before we left, we all went out for a great diner at the local Antlers restaurant. We will definitely be back to visit Tim and Dana and the beautiful area!
You can bet I’ll be back and make a point to visit this place again! Very friendly and helpful hosts. A-1!
Beautiful, quiet spot with gracious hosts! The drive there is spectacular at this time of year.
This host was so hospitable. I was unsure about my plans. He was very patient, accommodating and understanding. I wish I would have had a chance to make the stay work. I will just say "WOW! What a view."
High recommendation for these hosts! We had a so great time staying with them. They made us living in an american family and discover their way of life.... They took us discover their beautiful area... We had a wonderful evening around the fire, we wont forget it... Thanks so much!
