Gorgeous Sunset

Terry is a great host and is actively improving this property to support camping. He gave us a great history of the area and told is not to miss the lookout which is a quarter like up the road. It turned out to be a lovely park that is part of Allegheny National Forest, complete with vault toilet and picnic tables along the paths to the overlooks. We choose to eat dinner there as the breeze was a little better.

Generous Host

Terryrides so kindly extended our stay, offered us water and firewood! Great hospitality, we hope to come back again!

Welcoming Host

Terryrides gave us excellent directions and was waiting for us as we arrived. He escorted us to his hilltop location, where he allowed us to set up a little fire pit to enjoy the sunset. Another Boondocker arrived to the spacious property and we enjoyed her company too. Our host stopped by later with his family and it was a pleasure meeting such friendly people. He also kindly extended our stay! Don't miss the scenic Overlook at the top of the road in the Allegheny Forest. Cell service was good for calls, spotty for Internet.

Amazing stay!

We had a wonderful stay at Tidioute View! We weren't able to meet the host because he was out of town, but the site had a beautiful view and was very quiet. We walked up the road to the Tidioute Overlook which was also beautiful. We will definitely stay here again if we're passing through!

Private and flowery!

A lovely quiet patch with a great view. Plenty of room for the animals to explore and not worry about traffic. Plus pretty flowers and super nice hosts! Would definitely stay again. Thanks y'all!

Nice private spot

Terry was a gracious host who left a bundle of wood, a fire pit and a nice table and umbrella at the private parking spot up the road from his house. Unfortunately we didn’t get to meet as we have a habit of parking and then heading out for a walk (which is also when we missed Terry as he stopped by to say hi). We walked up the road always with the dog in the rainy weather (I’d recommend driving up to the outlook as there was some traffic, not a great road shoulder to walk on and not great sight lines for cars and pedestrians). The next morning we walked with our coffee down into town and over to the river park - quiet and peaceful. Sorry we missed meeting our kind host, but a spot we recommend for its peace and quiet, nearby small town and nice views : )

Another wonderful stay

We stayed 2 nights with terryrides while visiting Allegheny National Forest and really had a pleasant stay. It was thoughtful of terryrides to have a table and fireplace with firewood setup at the site. He suggested few places to visit while we were there and invited us back anytime. We will definitely visit terryrides again and the Allegheny National Forest.

Super Nice guy

Seriously folks, this host is awesome. We arrived late at night and an hour later than we had planned. The host was out looking for us and helped us get parked. The site is great. The town is cool. The Allegheny National Forest is beautiful. The host was kind and welcoming. We enjoyed visiting with him and sincerely appreciate the hospitality.

Great stay at Tidioute View

This was another great Boondockers Welcome location. It was easy to find and easy to get in and out of. It was a beautiful setting with a view. While eating breakfast we saw a groundhog & several deer. It was very peaceful. I recommend them very highly.

Good spot

Beautiful quiet spot

Felt very welcomed. Very nice view that is quiet. Woke up to deer near us. Host Was friendly and Accommodating. Would definitely come back again. Go to the Tidioute lookout up the road. Great little park.


August 2019

Great stay. Level, great view. Great communications with host.

Unfortunately, we were unable to meet our host as he was out of town on business. However, he provided great directions and restaurant recommendations. Would stay there again if traveling in this area in the future.

Great location and host

We stayed here two nights. Very quiet and the parking area was perfect for our rig and toad. Saw a number of wild turkeys out our front window. Only down side was we did not get to meet Terry, our host. We ate ice cream down the hill from our location which he recommended and was very delicious. We would stay here again if we ever are in the area.
Thanks Terry!

Great spot

This was a relaxing quite and secluded spot on a mountain side with great views. Terryrides was more than accommodating when asked if we could stay another night due to some towdolly issues. Townsfolk were really nice too. I went for a jog and two cars stopped to ask if I needed a ride.

The hosts were welcoming and accommodating...above and beyond. Unfortunately the rain kept me inside.

Awesome couple and very easy experience!

Nice boondocking spot

Terry was away so we didn't get to meet, but this is great boondocking spot. Flat, easy to get in & out and don't really see any other houses. A short bike ride into the cute town, and where there's a lightly maintained rail trail along the river.
