My wife and I with 4 children live on 2 acres in the rural part of the city, our home is surround with horses and fields. We have room to park about any size RV and can provide power and water. We appreciate $3 to $5 compensation per night for power. We also have several free dump station within 2 miles of our home.
We have a small pond with waterfalls in the front yard where you can sit on the porch and enjoy the view of the mountains or if you prefer more of a camping feel we have a 3 ft wood fire pit in the backyard that can be used for cooking. Or you can sit next to the gas fire on the screen back deck.
Because, my wife and I both work, we ask that you arrive between 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. unless other agreements are made. We leave for work between 6:00 and 8:00 a.m. When we are not home, we are uncomfortable with Boondockers that linger around while parked on our property. We do not want to rush in the morning so we don't have a set time when you need to leave.
We are 15 minutes south of I-84 and 20 minutes north of I-80 by way of I-15 then 3 miles from I-15. The parking area is level gravel unless you want to park in the field then its grass.
Our work and vacation schedules vary, based on what we have going on we can welcome guest. Please contact us with your schedule to see if we can accommodate you. You may contact us well in advance but, since our work schedule varies, we prefer to only commit to your stay within 7 days of your intended visit. When staying several days you may leave your RV park on our property while visiting local sites. Because my wife and I both work we would ask that you not stay on our property while we are not home. We do not want to rush in the morning so we don't have a set time when you need to leave. The time we leave and return from work changes and we will let you know when we accept your request. The range is from 7:00 to 9:00 in the morning and from 4:00 to 8:00 in the evening.
If you are living in your RV fulltime and need to park while you work there is an FAQ you may not have read. Please Read It.
I'm looking for a place to park for a few weeks or a month at a time. Is it okay to ask for a long-term stay? What if I offer to pay? https://www.boondockerswelcome.com/faq/being-guest/#may-i-request-a-long-term-stay
If you need to stay in your RV in the daytime, please do not make a request. We are happy to host guest traveling in their RV through town or seeing local sites. If you are looking for a cheap space to park while you work out of your RV in the daytime you should look for a campground that offers a weekly or monthly discount or posts an ad on Craig's List. Traveling guest and fulltime RVs, here to see local sites or stopping overnight are welcome.

Wonderful hosts, we enjoyed visiting with them on their porch with a beautiful view of the mountains and fields. They were very hospitable and even offered us ice cream while we chatted. They were kind enough to allow us use of water and electric during our stay for a very reasonable price. Which during summer is especially welcome. Highly recommend!
Got there fairly early in the evening, set up and then later joined the hosts and their daughter for a nice conversation on the porch where it was much cooler. They were both very helpful and nice. Would definitely stay there again if available.
A kind, welcome & friendly family; host greeted and helped me back into gravel drive in front of shed. Offered 30AMP & hookup to water - even lent me a hose to reach. We visited about travels, his very busy family business, their farm and hosting fellow RVers. Visited with his wife and other teen+ children later and felt very welcome! Their daughter & 2 big dogs adopted my small canine companion and mine thoroughly enjoyed have a s path of shaded, (real) grass after days of rock, sand & scrub brush. Later after it cooled, we all sat & visited in their beautiful gazebo they built listening to their pond waterfall as they invited me to share their ice cream & berries desert. Especially enjoyable for this tired traveler, quickly passing through the area. Maybe we connect in the road or in Oregon (b4 I sell my house.)
They are pleasant, hard working folks with very busy lives - BW members need to read their guidelines and be respectful of their schedules- which I fully understood beforehand and respected.
We had a nice stay. It was a great spot to base from and day trip to Salt Lake City. Our hosts were friendly and helped us out with suggestions for the city and our travels beyond. We would have liked to visit more but we had a couple very full days. Thanks very much!
Very friendly people, we got in late so were not able to talk a lot. We had driven over 650 miles and just really tired. Really sorry we were not able to get to know them more. Great quiet place to stay, easy in and out. Would recommend them as a great place to stay.
We spent good time with all the family.
Our boys were happy to see and feed their animals.
Thanks for the cobbler!
This delightful family hosted us for two nights in fall of 2017. Great communicators. Very accommodating. We were warmly welcomed and treated like royal guests. Highly recommend
Nice family, and helped with travel plans. We will stay with them again.
We really appreciated Paul and his family graciously taking us in with only a few hours notice. They were very friendly and accommodating!
Convenient location (for us) as we needed to have our Class B serviced at a local Mercedes-Benz dealer, close to local heritage museum/parks, level parking, and their willingness to play our silly board game was appreciated. We highly recommend this Host when in UT.
Had a great time for one night stay, just worked out perfect. Found PaulWaters to be down to earth, intelligent hard working folks with nice kids and strong work ethic and family values.
I'm sure we made some new friends. I hope we get to boondock with them again and hope to host them at our home.
Gord and Cherie Anderson.
We stayed two nights at Paul's house. They welcomed us with a fire and marshmallow (even in the middle of the week!) and we shared the diner.
Quiet place near Antilope Island and a not so far from Salt Lake City.
They were so generous of their time, they gave good advises about things to do.
Thank you, hope to see you again!
I stayed here at the end of October 2016 and could not have had better hosts in the SLC area. They are well-traveled and great conversationalists. They gave some great advice on things to do while in the area. The whole family is super nice. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Thank you!!!!
We enjoyed our stay in Water's family, very nice. Thanks again for your welcome and the information about the points of interests near your city: very useful!
This family is so so sweet! We are so very grateful they let us stay last minute. They were so nice to have a campfire for us and s'mores for the kids! Thank you Walters family!!
Great hosts and a warm, receptive family. Highly recommend staying here! They spent a lot of time with us recommending sites to see and shared their knowledge of the area, because they grew up there and know the community and its history. We'd love to visit again when we pass back through the Salt Lake area.
We stayed here for two nights. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Our hosts were very friendly and accomodating, treating us as one of their family. If you are looking for a comfortable, friendly boondocking experience, we highly recommend Paul and his family.
We all enjoyed every moment we stayed here, with the amazing view and friendly pets. We are grateful to the Waters family for their kind hospitality and generosity. It was wonderful to get to know you and your children. Thank you!
Stayed here recently overnight, 7/9/16. Owner has large property in open field. Very helpful, very responsive and super friendly. Highly recommend their hospitality.
We really enjoyed our very first boondocking experience staying with this hospitable family.
We sat on their breezy deck and shared traveling tips and adventures. They have a wealth of knowledge about
the local area and traveling in general. They invited us for dessert of homemade peach cobbler
and fresh churned ice cream while we all watched the fireworks. We were delighted to be able to
buy some farm fresh eggs from their son. Wonderful first experience!
We had a good time meeting and visiting this nice family. We spent a couple hours together talking both evenings; the Salt Lake area has a lot of interesting history. Their teenaged children are well mannered and friendly, our teen kids hung out with them on the swing set and got a tour of the sheep, pigs and chickens. There are various local things to see, we found a great canyon hike nearby that they told us about.
I can say nothing but good things about this wonderful family. To start off; the contact was easy, fast and useful. The stay was very pleasant, quiet and we would recommend it to others. But the best thing of all was the contact we had with our hosts; such lovely and warm people! Both nights we enjoyed eachothers company by chatting about our family's, travelling and other subjects. Their kids are also pleasant company. We hope to meet again in the future!
