True Boondockers

This interesting couple like to be Self Sufficient and have the means to be....Because they are so respectful and appreciative a host is honored to
have met them.

Great Couple!

Gklars stopped in for a night with us on their way down south. They are a most interesting couple, with wide-ranging experiences and interests. We're hoping to catch up with them in Florida this winter; failing that we'll see them in upstate NY next summer. Either way, we're looking forward to it!

Perfect spot

Gklars is the perfect spot! Nice and quiet, lots of birds and wildlife and G and K are really nice friendly people. Couldn’t ask for anything more!

A beautiful location with a beautiful couple! This was our very first time using Boondockers and they made our experience absolutely wonderful! It was fun hanging out with them, swapping stories and getting to know them so well. We highly recommend anyone to visit them....a nice tranquil setting and fun company! Thank you Glen and Kathleen!

Thank you so much!

These hosts were so nice to welcome us (Marianne, and my daughter, Anna,) even though they were busy with family visiting. We were happy for the safe, quiet sleep and a pleasant visit over morning coffee on the back deck overlooking their beautiful property.

Beautiful Setting with Lovely People

We stayed with Gklars for a night on our way into Vermont, and can't recommend them enough. They were both warm and inviting, made sure we had what we needed and invited us in for a visit and LOTS of helpful information about rv travel and boondocking. Kathleen even gave us a bag of lettuce from her garden before we left! Our dog was super excited to have a large yard to run in too. If you are near this area, stop by!

Quiet and Spacious

I stayed with G and K for one night and found some fantastic places to boondock in Florida. They are a very well traveled couple who have found some unique spots to stay at. They welcomed my dog who enjoyed the very large back yard to explore. Thanks.

Great conversationists

had a very nice but short stay with GKlars. A very engaging couple and relaxing area. Wonderful hosts. Also taught me where I live(near an anatomical part of an elephant) - they will explain. Thank you

Beautiful NY

We enjoyed the friendly ways that G & K while we camped in their driveway of their beautiful home. We had the most fun visiting on their back patio in the evening. We even got some great advice from them about boondocking in AZ.
A great place to boondock but a really great couple.
Thanks. Come & stay at our place when you can.

Excellent stopover

Gklars were very hospitable and friendly hosts for our overnight stay. They gave us some beautiful fresh vegetables, just picked from their garden. Yum! And they told us of a free campsite and a great walk in the Adirondacks which we really enjoyed after we left them.
