Hi, I’m Patty. My little corner of the world is awesome. Flathead Lake is the largest freshwater Lake west of the Mississippi. It is 28 miles long and 15 miles wide. It is magnificent. Lots of hiking,fishing, boating, kayaking etc. Glacier National Park is about 1-1/2 hours away. National Bison Range 45 minutes. Kerr Dam (SKQ) Flathead River area 20 minutes with awesome overlook. We have 2 museums in Polson. Main Street has many neat shops. Please visit our parks; Boettcher and Sacajawea are my favorite. Bigfork is about 30 minutes north. It is a very Artsy village, and main street reflects that. Be sure and drive over the one-lane bridge. Missoula is about an hour south. Kalispell is about 45 minutes north. We have 2 ski resorts: Big Mountain (Whitefish) and Blacktail Mountain (Lakeside).

I have traveled to all but 2 states. Driving to Alaska was the most awesome ever. I had done a couple of cruises there, but driving it was the best.

Not Enough Time!

We met briefly because of my schedule. I was not happy to see them leave while a hurricane was approaching, but they were brave and went on to Pensacola. Hoping they will stop back here some day!

Perfect stay

Unfortunately we only spent one night here, this was truly a little piece of heaven. The views were stunning in all directions and we enjoyed a little stargazing in the evening. The host was kind and helpful, we wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.


September 2021


This was are first boondockers welcome stay and I hope the rest of them are as perfect as this one. Host was such a wonderful person. Wish we could have spent more time there with her. Will definitely stay there again if we get back up that way. Thank you again Montana Chickie


September 2021

It really is a piece of heaven

Up close and personal views of the mountain ranges and the south end of flat head lake. Truly breathtaking and lovely🥰

3 miles from town and big box stores, the neighbors have horses and cows and dogs, 5 acres of property for plenty of people to camp and turn around easily, along with a communal fire ring, and eccentrically lovely array of chairs to partake , a back patio to visit, water to fill up your tank, and best of all is the host’s wonderful company🎁😍🙏👍 such a sweet kind intelligent and thoughtful person🙏🙏🙏

Cons: noisy

Somehow the highway noise is collected and amplified on her property. And while it slows down at night a large number of commercial trucks keep coming by ALL night and earnestly drive by enmasse at about 5 AM. You can hear them for the entire 2 miles they’re coming and going😖

Also, that local herd of cows that are so pleasant to look at, starts mooing LOUDLY at 6 AM. The neighbors barking dogs erupt in loud barking noises throughout the night.🤷‍♀️ The neighboring property has a lot of bright security lights so be sure to bring your black out curtains if that sort of thing bothers you.

Will definitely stay again.


September 2021

A highlight in our cross country trip

Host was very welcoming and accommodating to us. We stayed two nights and it was the most peaceful experience you could ever expect. Neighbors horses on one side, cows on another and a view of the lake and mountains. She introduced us to other campers which was such a nice experience as well. What a nice memory for your cross country trip.


September 2021

Wonderful everything!

Such a perfect little resting place


September 2021

Wonderful place to stay!

Very welcoming and friendly host! We had a great night’s stay...thank you!


September 2021

Lake Views/Great Host

Excellent host with lots of room to spread out. Breathtaking views of the lake and Mission Mountains.


September 2021

What a great host!

Montana Chickie could not have been more accomodating. We almost didn't reach out because our request was so last minute but she responded within 15 mins and we were there within the hour! She was so sweet to meet us on the road and escort us into her gorgeous property. She even offered us power and invited us to a campfire : ) The views to the lake and mountains were fantastic. We enjoyed sunset on her big lawn and watching her neighbor's horse play in the field. Wish we had longer to get to know Patty--she seems like an interesting lady and was so darn nice!


September 2021

Perfect stay!

The location was excellent for exploring Flathead lake and her property is just amazing. There were three rigs our first night stay and plenty of room! We were able to play frisbee with our pups and let them run a bit, nice bonus. We were also able to put out kayaks in right behind her property at the fishing access site. The town of Polton is super adorable. Great sunset views. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you!


September 2021

Beautiful, spacious site

Our host met us at the road and guided us back to the large, mowed-grass field where we parked our rig. The field overlooked Flathead Lake and looked up at the nearby mountains. What a beautiful spot to share with travelers! Our host could not have been nicer; she checked on us a couple times while guiding other campers in, and invited us to the evening campfire behind her house.


September 2021

Nice property and lovely host

We enjoyed our 5 night stay in the pasture. Plenty to do in the area and the host was delightful and helpful! Thank you!


September 2021

Super Relaxing

MontanaChickie is the sweetest host ever. So welcoming and darn funny. Her pasture was big and fairly level with really good Verizon reception. A nice view of Flathead Lake and Mission Mountains. Dog had plenty room to explore and play fetch. A perfect place to spend the long holiday weekend!


September 2021

Little piece of heaven indeed

This so is in a prime location for enjoying what the Flathead area has to offer. MontanaChickie is a very gracious and friendly host. The property is well situated and laid out to offer multiple guests a nice stay without being crowded.


September 2021

Wonderful Location and Community

The host was absolutely pleasant and her property was stunning. Right off the bat the host was welcoming and guided us into her property for an easy set up. There were other travel trailers and RV’s staying there in her large back fenced in yard overlooking the lake. It felt almost like an old school caravan where everyone was circled up. Lots of room to stay private and enjoy some scenery on your own, but close enough to make friends with your neighbor if your in the mood for some conversation. The host put together a bonfire that many of the Boondockers were able to enjoy and created a great sense of community amongst us. My only regret is not spending more time there!


September 2021

Heaven Indeed

This was a stunning property! Plenty of room in a big, open field with a gorgeous view of the Rocky Mountains! Very close to Flat Head Lake and all the things you need in town!

Montana Chickee has a gift for hospitality! Communication was excellent and we felt welcomed before we even arrived!

Loved this little piece of Heaven and will venture back some time!


September 2021

Paradise Found

1st BW stay. I have to say I don’t think it can get better than this. MontanaChickie was so welcoming and kind. The property is stunning. So very grateful for her generosity in sharing a true “piece of heaven”.


September 2021


Wonderful spot and kinda folks


September 2021

Dedicated and friendly BW host with the most!

Montana Chickie is dedicated to making RVers feel welcome. A lot of work from the goodness of her heart! The property offers a gorgeous expanse of lush green grass. All very neat and tidy. Surrounding mountain views and Big Sky can't be beat. Adjacent neighbors to this BW includes one with two friendly, grazing horses, one with a flock of Guinea fowl, and one with a tent camper in the backyard. It was such a cool scene ... we and the other RVs all kind of circled up in Montana Chickie's back yard. Perfect opportunity to meet new people and just chill. We really enjoy hosts like this who come out once in awhile and are interested in getting to know us and sharing their stories.
Note: Host offers some hookup which we were drawn to, figuring we could stay several days despite the fact our batteries are weakening. (We've got a residential frig that runs only on electric.) Hookup was not available when we arrived, however, so we pulled out earlier than planned.


September 2021

She’s the reason the RV community is amazing!

Thank you so much for a warm and hospitable welcome. Beautiful open space with the mountains in the backyard. Wonderful host and other RV folks to hang with in the evenings.


September 2021

Quiet lake view get away

This property is located just outside of Polson in the beautiful Flathead Lake. We were here for 2 days and it was quiet and relaxing with lots of space on her green pasture for our do to play. We were perfectly level and had a lovely view of the lake. Plenty to do nearby. We opted to relax and stay put other than exploring by traveling around the entire lake and eating a nice meal at the Tamarak Brewing Company at Lakeside. Thank you for your hospitality! It’s so special to have nice people contribute their time and space for the travelers at heart.


August 2021

Absolutely beautiful!

What a wonderful stay! Thank you Montana Chickie for opening up your space to us.


August 2021

Awesome spot

Host was so welcoming and great views


August 2021

Like a Field of Dreams

MontanaChickie couldn’t have been more welcoming, escorting me in her orange RTV to my spot overlooking the lake valley. Level, very quiet, near a town with a little bit of anything you need. I hope to be able to stay again sometime. Thank you!


August 2021

Great views

This place has great views of the mountains, lake and sunset. Plenty of flat spots and room to spread out. Good cell service. The host is super nice and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.


August 2021

Great stay!

This a beautiful spot right at Flathead Lake. The host was so friendly and great at communicating. She met us and guided us right to our spot. There is plenty of room and it’s easy to get in and out. Polson is just a few minutes away. We loved sitting outside and enjoying the view of the mountains and you can see the lake as well.


August 2021

Montana Chickie

We had the best stay ever! The pasture was wonderful as were the views! And watching all the camper kids play freeze tag and ride bikes was the icing on the cake! Not to mention the impromptu fire less campfires ! Will definitely be back!
Oh did I mention…our first stay! Absolutely the best ever (to quote Richard Scarry).


August 2021

Glacier visit

was very nice to work with, quick responses to questions and a nice site to see the lake and mountains


August 2021

View of the lake

Property has a view of the lake and had plenty of room, in a grassy maintained field. There were 4 other families camping in the back field and 2 next to her house. Very nice but our visit was short as it rained off and on the entire time, we were there in August. No hook ups but was able to run generator. Property is close to town (Walmart, restaurants, laundry mat). Great place to stay!


August 2021

Fabulous place near Flathead Lake

Hostess was very helpful and welcoming. View was fabulous and if you ask in advance you can get 110 power.

We are in a 38 ft Jayco Precept. Large field in the back of property and you have plenty of room to turn around. We stayed by the hosts home which had some traffic noise but not much at night.

Will stay again and highly recommend.


August 2021

Great host and beautiful spot!

Had a great stop at this wonderful spot. Right next to the lake and mountains! Would recommend to anyone looking to explore the flathead lake area!


August 2021

Didn’t want to leave!

Thank you for sharing your property with us! With the lake on one side and the mountains on the other, the scenery was beautiful. My kids loved the huge grassy space to play in. And our host was so friendly. Even gave my kids a ride around the property. Would have stayed much longer!


August 2021

Wonderful stay with a wonderful host

The host was very welcoming, friendly and generous. The location is beautiful with views of the lake, mountains, and neighboring horses. A little tight getting into the gate, but doable. Just be careful. And lots of room to set up. Definitely recommend!


August 2021

Amazing host incredible views

Montana chickie is such a wonderful host! She is so sweet and provides a safe and secure environment while out exploring the amazing area of Polson Montana. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay again. Also there are amazing views all the way around the entire property and a nice trail for running not far away.


August 2021

Wonderful Host

Our host was so friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and our time visiting with her.


August 2021

Friendly and accessible

Easy in and out. Water appreciated. Location convenient for travel to many MT destinations.


August 2021

Beautiful property, great host!

Host responded quickly and warmly when we needed a last minute place to stay. The property has gorgeous views of Flathead lake, and is nice and quiet, and host was very welcoming. Highly recommend this place.


August 2021

Lovely host!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with this kind, generous host. She gave us tourist advice - grocery, laundromat and a wonderful place to launch our kayaks. She always had a smile and a bit of conversation.


August 2021

What a lovely view

We set up camp in the north pasture. What a beautiful view of the Mission Mountain Range.

It was quiet, peaceful, and serene.

We slept like babies.

I highly recommend this Little Piece of Heaven! :-)


August 2021


We were extremely thankful for a place to stay in the Polson area as the campground we were to stay in was in a forest fire area. We really wanted to explore the Flathead Lake area and Patty gave us that opportunity. We are forever grateful to “A Little Peace of Heaven” and our hostess.


August 2021

Angel along the way...

Beautiful land, amazing host, fabulous stay! So grateful for the angels along the way.


August 2021


She’s a nice lady. I only spoke with her once- when she was guiding me in to park on her large back lawn. She texted me a couple days later to check on me. The Mountain View from her yard filled me with awe and peace.


August 2021

It IS a Little Piece of Heaven!

And, Montana Chickie is the perfect hostess!! She was so warm and helpful, letting us select a great spot for our camper. The field is paradise, the views spectacular on 4 sides! Several campers were there with lots of space and privacy. Thank you for allowing us to stay!


August 2021

My Little Place Of Heaven

Susie and I had a great time at "A Little Piece of Heaven". The host was very nice and allowed us total privacy. The place was quiet and very clean. We ran on the running Trail that leaves her driveway back towards Polson. Polson is an awesome little town with a place for an awesome burger! We loved it here and want to come back every time we travel through. We highly recommend "My Little Piece Of Heaven". 😊 J and S


August 2021

Great Experience

This was a great place to stay. Nice flat grassy area with fabulous Mountain View. We would definitely stay again if in the area.


August 2021

Great Hospitality

Our host was so helpful getting us into her site. Great communication. We had a quiet, restful night. We would definitely stay again if in the area.


August 2021

The host was wonderful

We really liked the host. It was a very nice place to stay for a couple of days while we waited to get into glacier national Park. There are several wildlife refuges in the area. So we stayed busy birdwatching.


August 2021

Great place

Really enjoyed our stay, lots of room, quite and lake view! Thanks Montana chickie!!


August 2021


Great place to stay. Beautiful location and peaceful. Host was very kind and generous. 💯 recommend.


August 2021

Beautiful land

Our host was super sweet. She is so generous to share her beautiful piece of property with gorgeous mountain and lake views. We really enjoyed our time here!


July 2021

Big Sky

Had a very nice visit with the host. We left a day early because we packed a lot into our visit to Polson.
We were parked in an open field with sevral other campers whom we shared our experiences with them.
Sadly, the fires in surrounding states affected our views of the lake and mountains.
We will definitely be back again.

NOTE: Reserve your Road to the Sun tickets before coming this way. Trying to get the daily tickets is non-existent. However, if you enter before 6am or after 5 pmnyou don’t need the ticket.


July 2021

Perfect Location for Visiting Glacier

Thanks so very much to Montana Chickie for hosting us for 5 nights. We were able to see Glacier National Park three different days and Kalispell and Whitefish. We did everything we wanted to. We filled up our water tank as we drove in and our host showed us where to park in her big
field out back. The grass was green and cut and parking was a breeze. We parked facing north so our view of the mountains was beautiful. Our host totally enjoys her guests. We loved being here! Thanks again!


July 2021

My Little Piece of Heaven

We had a wonderful stay here by the Lake. Our hostess is WONDERFUL!! 💗💗 This is a beautiful site and you can easily access anywhere you may want to visit. We were here for an Art Festival. It was nice to come “home” to such a wonderful place. We highly recommend this Boondockers Welcome site.


July 2021

Great hostess

We had a wonderful stay and she is a very nice host. Even invited the lady’s fir morning coffee and girl talk . We highly recommend this stop before going on to Marty’s place


July 2021

Amazing place!

We stayed there only for two nights, very beautiful farm with great views, Patty and her doughter so gracious and kind. Wish them the best!


July 2021

Truly a little piece of heaven

MontanaChickie’s place was a perfect place for us to rest after a long day at Glacier. We parked behind the house in a big field with mountain and lake views. Absolutely beautiful :)


July 2021

Beautiful Location

Definitely a Little Piece of Heaven. Views of the mountains and Flathead Lake.
Couldn't ask for a nicer host!
Thank you so much for the stay. Looking forward to visiting on my way through again!


July 2021

Perfect Paradise!

I had the absolute best stay ~ we had so much fun! I arrived a stranger and left a Friend. 🥰 I will be back (and maybe never leave!) I could not have felt more at home with beautiful views of the Mission Mountains and Flathead Lake… MontanaChickie’s hospitality was so warm and welcoming ~ I am so grateful she shared her Piece of Heaven with me! 💜


July 2021

Amazing Host!!!!

MontanaChickie sure has the gift of hospitality down. What a wonderful host! Great place to recharge for a few days and meet some fellow boondockers. I can't imagine passing through and not stopping in to say hello to MontanaChickie.


July 2021

Shortened Stay

Was going to stay longer but we decided to head to the coast to flee the heat wave. Host was nice, helpful and was ok with the change in plans.


July 2021

Truly a piece of heaven

The owner’s generous, kind, and loving heart can be felt throughout her land. She blessed our family with her property during our stay and we met the most amazing group of people while staying there.
May God continue to Bless you!!!


July 2021


The views at this spot are beautiful but what makes this place special is the host and the other guests. We had a blast.


July 2021

Great place

Property had a great view of mountains.Very quiet and gracious hostess.Good location.


July 2021

It is a piece of heaven!

Wonderful host, beautiful spot! I can't say enough great things about this BW experience. Easy to get to, big level grassy area with a ton of space and a friendly host who makes sure everyone is comfortable! A beautiful area with lots to do nearby. We loved staying here!


July 2021

Beautiful property and very welcoming host

We loved our stay here. The host was very responsive with communications and was very welcoming. The property is beautiful with views of the lake and the mountains. We had a great evening and made new friends with the other guests. Thank you so much for having us!


July 2021

Beautiful Spot

We ended up leaving earlier than expected, but really enjoyed the time we got to spend in this beautiful spot. Host was very friendly and easy to work with. Hope to return one day

July 2021

Now our little piece of heaven

MontanaChickie has created such a warm, inviting environment. Her graciousness seems to spill over into all her guests. We found it not only a place of rest and beauty but of community and connection. We were surprised at how sad we were to be on our way. We will definitely be back. Fifteen stars.


July 2021

A perfect spot to visit GNP

We stayed at this little slice of heaven while we visited Glacier. It was a nice, flat field shared by some other RVer's just over an hour south of Glacier Park. There is plenty to do in the area which made this a great location. The host was communicative and helpful when we requested some information about the area. Would definitely recommend.


July 2021

Perfect Week

First time boondocking and this spot was perfect. We were able to get water when we needed. Host was always helpful. The views are gorgeous all around, especially at sunset. Fun to chat with the other campers as well.


July 2021

Fantastic Stay

Great host and location convenient to Polson and several state parks.


July 2021

Peaceful place

A peaceful place to stay with mountains and lake view. Host was very thoughtful and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again when in the area.


July 2021


Wonderful host, perfect spot to get to Glacier NP, beautiful open field (mowed) and great sense of community with other campers. Campers gathered to have a taco dinner with the host. Great conversations, information and just a general good time. Highly recommend.


July 2021

You MUST stay here!

This was our first BW experience and it will be tough to beat. We stayed in the back pasture and enjoyed incredible views of the mountains and the lake. The host was wonderful and even did a trash run for us! Wish we could have stayed longer but we will be back!


July 2021

No worries

This was my first Boondockers Welcome experience and my hat is off to MontanaChickie. She provided great communication and ease with access to her property. An additional benefit to her location is having a paved biking/walking/running sidewalk into Polson just a couple hundred yards away from her driveway. “No worries” with over 100 positive reviews for this hostess.


July 2021

Mountains and river.

What a beautiful spot overlooking Flathead lake and the mountains. Had car trouble and our hostess was very helpful. Felt like she really cared. 2 thumbs up. 👍👍


July 2021

Great time.

Had a great time staying at a Little Piece of Heaven. She was very kind in opening her property to us and to all those that stayed while we were there. This is a great location for visiting Glacier National Park. We would definitely stay there again.


July 2021

Excellent stay

Thank you, MontanaChickie!


July 2021

Beautiful scenery

We stayed 3 nights at this beautiful spot. 1 1/2 hrs from Glacier NP. Kerr Dam was beautiful too. Went to National Bison Range & saw several large bison. Make sure you buy some roadside cherries. Hostess was awesome! Til next time.


July 2021

Beautiful Host, Beautiful Lake

A perfect Boondockers Welcome experience! Montanachickie and her property are amazing. We had a beautiful view of the lake and our fellow guests were so much fun. Town is only a few minutes away and the nightly fires were such a treat. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you!


July 2021

Great place!

Great property, wonderful host and great boondockers to meet!


July 2021

Beautiful place and so friendly

We were glad to meet back up after 3 years. Such a beautiful place to stay and Patty is one of the sweetest hosts! Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful home!


July 2021


Definitely a little piece of heaven! Very easy coordination and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!


July 2021

Beautiful location

We loved our stayed here!We were promptly greeted upon arriving by friendly hosts. They showed us where we could park and let us know we could reach out if the location would be too warm for us (it was an unusually hot weekend). We could see the lake from our camp spot and the breeze from the water was refreshing and kept things cooler than we thought. Our host came around the next day and checked in on all of the guests. Very positive experience. Thank you for the wonderful stay! We would love to come back again sometime.


July 2021

It really does not get any better than here

Great view of the lake, super friendly, quiet, super view of the mountains, within 5 minutes of shopping and the lake, saw a bear turkeys 100’s or deer just a few minutes up the road,


July 2021

Lake view

Beautiful shady side yard was perfect for my smaller pickup/camper. Host was delightful .


July 2021

Loved the Stay

I’ve wanted to visit Flathead Lake for years.
This was a dream come true for me.

We enjoyed our stay here. Sorry we had to leave. We can’t wait to visit again. Host was helpful and friendly. Loved staying on your piece of heaven.


June 2021

Perfect stop

Great stay! Super friendly and helpful :)


June 2021

Spectacular spot, wonderful host!

With views of Flathead Lake and the surrounding mountains, this site couldn't be more impressive. The host was responsive, helpful, and generous. We stayed in the back field where there was plenty of room for large rigs.


June 2021

The host is a gem, beautiful property!

Beautiful private location. The host is super friendly and accommodating. The panoramic views of the lake and mountains are relaxing and sunsets over the lake are breathtaking. Definitely would love to come back here again and enjoy the relaxing environment. The host sets the bar high and the world is a better place for her generosity of accommodating RV’ers.


June 2021

Lovely stay

So glad we stayed! Host was such a sweet lady and very welcoming. We had a lovely one night stay with gorgeous lake and mountain views. We would have loved to stay longer if we didn’t already have reservations at Glacier Park.


June 2021

A piece of heaven indeed

Patty is the sweetest person. She has a beautiful property and loves to host. Patty had bonfire up by her house for all of the guests which was a wonderful treat. Highly recommend, about 6 mins from town.


June 2021

Great location!

This property is beautiful with a lake and Mountain View. I was able to use this as base camp to explore the lake and Glacier National Park as well. Plus, the host was very kind and welcoming.


June 2021

3rd Experience with Boondockers

Thank you very much for making our visit to Polson, Montana so nice. Your hospitality and kindness was so welcoming. We love the spectacular views of Flathead Lake, sunsets, moon rises and the great suggestions of places to visit nearby. We also enjoyed sitting around the fire ring getting to know the other campers that were staying with you at the same time. You made our visit to Glacier Park very special. Thank you again.


June 2021

Find Heaven in Montana

“A little piece of Heaven “ lives up to its name. The view is breath taking the sunsets are calming. The hostess thinks of everything. The near by walks are restorative. Wanda the chicken kept us entertained. The campfire with the other guests was a delightful evening. This is the best camping experience at flathead lake.


June 2021

Lakeside paradise with the best host

M is the bomb! She was busy the day we arrived, so her helpful and welcoming daughter stood in for her in finding our spot on her property and getting situated. All was easy and smooth. Her place is awesome, which is reflected in how busy it was, so we didn't get the "choice" spots with power hookups but that has a big silver lining - it meant we were set up in the well mowed back pasture which afforded us a beautiful view of Flathead lake out one set of windows and a wonderful mountain view out of the other. Plus, the dogs we able to really let loose in the pasture.

The weather during our two nights there wasn't super cooperative, so we missed out on the "come one, come all" bonfires, but they are sure to be a delight for future guests.

I say that because when you meet M you won't want to leave. She's sweet, funny, generous, easy going - downright the best host.

Honestly, I will go out of my way on any future trips to Montana to stay in Polson so I can sit down and get to know M better. Especially since we share some roots in the same little California town! Small, beautiful world it is.

Thanks so much again, M. Maybe we will cross paths in the other -tucky someday!


June 2021

Generous spirit

Montana Chickie was warm, hospitable and accommodating as my ability to predict my exact time of arrival and departure was somewhat unpredictable. Her place is truly “a little piece of heaven!” This was my 1st stay with a Boondocker host and it will be a memory I will always cherish.


June 2021

Wonderful Night

We had a great stay at the little piece of heaven! We caught up on much needed rest, chatted with fellow travelers, and went down to see the water with Patti's daughter and another traveler. We had such a nice time! Patti and Shelley are so kind! Thank you for letting us stay!


June 2021

Hospitality & View!

We are so glad we got to meet our host. We really enjoyed her and her home. We had a lake view and even saw a momma and baby deer. Would stay again in a heartbeat. The only sad thing was we could only stay one night since we had to get back on the road. Beautiful!


June 2021

Simply Lovely

Everything about this stay was beautiful. MontanaChickie is the kindest host! We had wonderful "neighbors" and enjoyed the gorgeous views with some fire side chats. Easy to pull in and multiple great parking spots.


June 2021

Little Piece of Heaven is an Understatement

I can't say enough to express my feelings for this host and place. We have never felt more welcomed, comfortable or awe-inspired. MontanaChickie should be careful when being so great - people like us might just try to stay forever. Polson has a Big Piece of Heaven and that is why we will be back. Thank You for having us. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with you.


June 2021

Perfect host! Beautiful place!

Perfect host! It was great to be guided to our spot! Beautiful place!


June 2021

Wonderful place to rest

June 2021

Definitely a little piece of Heaven!

Such an amazing place and Patty is an awesome host! We loved our time here, loved exploring the area and loved learning about the beautiful state of Montana 😊


June 2021


We absolutely loved our stay here! MontanaChickie is such a welcoming host and when the weather is accommodating she builds a campfire and invites her guests to gather around. It was nice to converse with other campers. It is a lovely and peaceful spot and we witnessed two beautiful sunsets. We were scheduled for two nights, but enjoyed our stay so much that our host suggested we spend another night, which we gladly did. Highly recommend!


June 2021

Montana Bliss

Had a beautiful stay with MontanaChickie! Open field with lake views and mountains. Right near lots of amenities and lake use. Would have loved to stay longer! Thank you for our wonderful stay!

Really nice place and our host was very helpful. Very pretty area to relax and enjoy yourself. Our son love the rope swing as well.

Can I give it to 10 stars?

Spectacular location. Delightful hostess. Plenty of room for our big rig, dry camping in the field. Met several other boondockers and had a wonderful chat around a giant bonfire.
Thank you so much, MontanaChickie!


June 2021

Scenic Montana spot

The host and site were as good as I've stayed at ... and maybe the best!
Was met by host on main road and parked in 5 minutes - with a good view of the lake and the mountains.
Host very friendly and personable! Took a keen interest in anyone and everyone. Had a campfire every evening for anyone able to attend that was very enjoyable ... whether you had a significant other or not.
A very highly recommended host and location for anyone needing some R&R, a stopover site or wanting to enjoy the local area.

Hostess with the most

This was a wonderful stay with a entertaining host (Mountain Chickie)


May 2021

Great hostess

Not only made us feel comfortable and at home, she even built a campfire so all the guests could visit if they wanted. Gorgeous view of Flathead lake and quiet


May 2021

Fantastic spot, super nice host

This was our very first Boondockers Welcome stay. MontanaChickie is a wonderful host who guided us to our spot in the middle of pouring rain without even so much as a tiny complaint. She even checked the sogginess of the ground for us ahead of time to make sure we didn’t get stuck. We didn’t, and the spot is perfectly level with a view of the lake and mountains all around. Also, a young bear visited the yard this morning that we were able to see! I’ve still got butterflies from the sight of him and hope the photos come out okay. Thanks for the great stay! We’re inspired by you to be hosts ourselves.


May 2021

Big piece of heaven!

Montana Chickie was as welcoming and warm as could be! Her beautiful property faces the lake as well as the mountains and you couldn’t ask for a more ideal location! If we are ever nearby this area again, we will certainly request that she let us stay again.


May 2021

Wonderful Place to Stay

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to meet MontanaChickie because of our differing schedules but she was always quick to respond when I contacted them. She has a beautiful place and I would highly recommend it to everyone.


May 2021

Wonderful gracious host.

Wonderful 2 day stay. Truly it is a slice of heaven. Wonderful place, beautiful grassy area with few of lake and mountains.


May 2021

Gorgeous Property with Sweet Friendly Host

Gorgeous Property with Sweet Friendly Host. We would gladly stay again!


May 2021

Great place to stay

A few spots to choose from we stayed in the field out back. Peaceful, quiet. Lots of birds 😁 The host greeted us and showed us where to park. She is generous and kind. We will definitely stay again next time we are this way again.


April 2021

Fun Stay!

Montana Chickie was a great host and her property had beautiful views! We had a wonderful time here.


September 2020

Absolutely perfect!

This was our first experience with Boondockers Welcome, and it was fabulous. Our host was thoughtful and kind, and couldn’t have been more accommodating. The setting among the willow trees was lovely, and we had a view of the lake from our RV. We highly recommend this host and this location.


September 2020

We have a lifelong friend!

Patty is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. I’m so grateful that God brought us together. During the last few days of our stay we thought we developed a propane leak and without propane we had no furnace to keep us warm. I was freezing and decided to go outside in the sun to warm up and Patty felt my freezing cold hands and immediately got us an electric heater she had so I could get warm. She was kind enough to let us use it for the remaining days we were there and let me tell you it was life changing! Patty is definitely a SUPERHOST!!!! I consider her a good lifelong friend. We will definitely keep in touch and we will visit her again next year. We broke the social distance rule on the 10th day...we are both HUGGERS! We truly love Patty. She has a kind gracious sincere heart...We will continue to pray for blessings to be poured on her and her family in abundance!!! Love, John & Brenda


September 2020

Beautiful and kind

This host was really kind and responsive, and the area is beautiful! Thank you!


September 2020

What a quite beautiful little spot.

I felt so safe & secure here. Just a beautiful place. The views of the mountains & the lake were great. I explored the local back roads & the entire experience was perfect. Great host, great place. I will certainly return if they will have me.

Awesome spot!

Excellent host and excellent spot. I can't wait to stay here again!!


September 2020

Huge blessings abound!

Patty understood how much we wanted to visit the Going to the sun road at Glacier but because of the smoke we weren’t able to go, so she has graciously allowed us to extend our stay so that we can go. The rain is supposed to clear out the smoke by Sunday. Our plan is to go to Glacier on Sunday and then continue on our trip on Monday. Thank you Patty for continuing to bless us. We are so grateful.

Super friendly host and beautiful location - can't wait to return!


September 2020

Stunning views

Patty was waiting for us and gave us several options for parking. We decided to park next to her barn where there was 50amp electricity hookups and water. Very level spot. Mountain View’s overlooking Polson Bay and Flathead Lake. Sunsets are beautiful. Our 5 days flew by and we still had several things to do in the area and Patty very graciously allowed us to extend our stay. God has blessed all of us greatly!

September 2020


The host is friendly, welcoming, and caring. Good communication. Great spot with room for kids to play, level, easy in/out, and great view. Can't wait to go back to this spot!


September 2020

Beautiful Property + Kind Host!

We parked out in the field behind the property and it was perfection. A view of the lake on one side and mountains on the other! We were invited up each evening to sit around the fire pit and watch the sun set. So thankful we got a chance to stay here!


September 2020

This is truly a "Little Piece of Heaven"

Montana Chickie was an AWESOME host. Wonderful grounds overlooking Flathead Lake in Polson, Montana. Very accommodating to everyone that was staying there. Very popular place. Four other rigs were boon docking but with 4 acres there was plenty of room. Even a large fire pit with many chairs for nice conversation.


September 2020

Beautiful location

We had a wonderful weekend stay, the scenery is beautiful. Montana Chickies back yard was very inviting and we enjoyed chatting at the evening campfires.


September 2020

Fantastic first stay!

Patty was a dream come true! I’m used to parks with hookups but she made me feel instantly at ease and welcome! Can’t wait to find my way back to this area so I can stay with her!


September 2020

A Perfect Haven

Montana Chickee is the sweetest host and feel very fortunate that she shared her special place with us. It was the perfect place to simply “chill” or after a long sightseeing day a beautiful “home” to come back to. Thank you for your hospitality and for sharing your furry friend with Sadie! We will be back!


September 2020

Beautiful location

The view of Flathead Lake and mountains is awesome. The horses next door were fun to watch, and the shared evening campfire with our host made this one of our best boondocker visits. We would definitely stay here again when in Montana.


August 2020

Amazing stay!

We had an amazing stay with MontanaChickie! What a beautiful piece of property just miles near the lake. On the last day we got to say hi to the horses nextdoor . We couldn’t have been happier with our stay.


August 2020

Little Bit of Heaven is for real!

You have two choices while stay there. In back there is space for two RV’s withe views to the rear of the lake and the mountains in front. Our wonderful hostess put us in front under a magnificent Weeping Willow and large pine in lush grass. Although the highway in front was a little noisy we slept like babies. We really enjoyed visiting with MontanaChickie sitting around the memorial fire ring in her backyard, a sweet gracious lady. This was a fantastic first Boondockers experience for us.


August 2020

Peaceful and quiet setting

Easy to find the host was waiting outside for me.
I choose the back of the property away from the highway and had completel privacy on my stay.
Five stars Beautiful area to spend a few days at.


August 2020


Very gracious host. Loved her fire pit and outdoor seating area. Would be back when in the area. Thanks for a great stay!


August 2020

Truly a little piece of heaven

The name of this place is accurate, a little piece of heaven for sure! We met MontanaChickie as strangers but left as friends. Wonderful welcoming host, met us at the gate and escorted us to where we would park. A lush grassy open area big enough to navigate our TWO big fifth wheel rigs in and out easily! Our views were of Flathead Lake one direction and a mountain range the other direction. We felt quite at home in this ranch like setting. Peaceful, beautiful sunset. We travel full time using all types of stays from resorts, NP, SP, harvest hosts to boondocking. This is such a unique setting and wonderful host. The best boondocking experience to date. Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous property!! God BLESS you and we hope our paths meet again!!


August 2020

Perfect unity

Staying with montanachickie and her other guests on her lovely property was a dream. She was such a sweet person and fabulous host and we love sitting by the communal fire at night sharing stories with her and the ppl visiting. I would befriend her for a lifetime and recommend her to anyone who wants to share with a pure heart on her very special property. We loved our stay and want to come again


August 2020

Stunning location and fantastic host!

We absolutely loved our stay and it certainly was A Little Piece of Heaven! Beautiful views and close to the lake, downtown Polson, and about an hour and half from Glacier National Park.
We were able to enjoy a socially distanced fire with Montana Chickie and some other boondockers. Montana Chickie is a wonderful host and we hope to be back again in the future!


August 2020

Very nice place and people

We stayed two nights and had the back forty to our selves. Nice campfire and very accommodating. Would stay there again.


August 2020

Great person, great host

A delightful lady! A beautiful spot, sunset over the Lake was wonderful. Tried to have a bonfire, but a quick, brief shower canceled that gathering. Chickie was friendly, helpful,, everything you want in a host. Would sure like to have her visit us in Iowa!


August 2020

You’d be a fool to pass this up.

I’ve thought long and hard about what to say about the beautiful experience we had here, but I’ll keep it light and short.

Miss Montana Chickie is an incredible person who we will never forget. Her property is magazine worthy and her hospitality is unmatched. The views are stunning. You’ll have everything you need here, and then some.

We’ll be missing you Patty!


August 2020

Awesome Host

Truly is a Little Bit of Heaven! Will definitely go back, our visit was too short!
Enjoyed getting to know each other.
Beautiful location!


August 2020

Beautiful and welcoming

Gorgeous spot with a view of Flathead Lake! Host is very friendly and welcoming. I hope to cone by again.


August 2020

Absolutely Fabulous!`

Patty is a true gem! Her generosity and pure joy for hosting guests is infectious. I stayed two nights and feel like a part of her family. She has a gorgeous view of the lake, incredible sunsets, huge fire pit and plenty of space for 3 rigs to have privacy. The other campers there during my stay are now friends after a fun day on the lake, family dinner with Patty and her cute dog Isabella. I can't wait to make my way back to Polson to stay at Patty's place! Thank you for a wonderful experience.


July 2020

Great spot and kind people

Had a great stay here for a few days and good fire pit conversations with host and family. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Space was level and easy to access with a lake view!


July 2020

Great place

Great host. Great views. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven.


July 2020

Flathead Lake Stay

Hostess was extremely nice and helpful. Wonderful setting. She made sure we set up in a place where we had a nice view of the lake.


July 2020

Favorite Place

This was our second stay here and we can't say enough good! The host is amazing, friendly and great with our kids.
The site has a gorgeous view, especially the sunset every night.
Lots to see around the lake and only 1.5 hrs to Glacier.


July 2020

More like a “BIG Piece of Heaven!“

What a lovely and beautiful place...and Patty...well, she’s a true gem. We truly felt like welcome guests and had a fun campfire visit with her cute family members and other guests. Thank you SO much for your generous hospitality, Patty. Blessings to you as you begin a new chapter in your life. ❤️

A very pleasant stay

We had a wonderful stay and what a beautiful property with a view of the lake. Plenty big for any size rig. Patty is extremely gracious and very kind. We will definitely come back if in the area😀. Thanks again!


July 2020


It is called “a little piece of Heaven “ and the name is correct. Wonderful sl place to visit and enjoy. COVID kept our visit minimal but the short distanced visits were memorable. We will be back.


July 2020

Fantastic location!

I enjoyed a little piece of heaven so much I returned again. The host greeted me with a beautiful smile and warm welcome. Montana offered up perfect weather and the location more beautiful than I remembered! I couldn’t ask for anything better and each night, I slept like a baby. Thank you so much!!!


July 2020

Fantastic Host

This was our first stay with Boondocker’s Welcome.

It was a great experience and the host was very friendly and accommodating.
Recommended things to do in the area, and the property was amazing and we had even had some shade. 🙂 We would hope to be back someday in the future. Thank you for a great stay. We feel it can’t get any better than this.

Great fire 🔥

The only bad was that we had to leave so soon. 🙂❤️ Thank you for your hospitality.


July 2020

Perfect host!

Level, beautiful, gracious!


July 2020

Absolutely a 'Little Piece of Heaven'

I had a wonderful stay with an amazing and gracious host who made me feel so welcome. Situated on a grassy area, the windows of my 5th wheel coach opened up to a lovely view of Flathead Lake and the surrounding area. I couldn’t have asked for a better first experience using Boondockers Welcome. Thank you so much. I would definitely stay at this gem again.


June 2020

Beautiful Place

The host was so welcoming and generous. They had just put in a firepit they let us use and joined us by the fire.
She and her family gave us great places to visit and were very helpful.
The spot is peaceful, beautiful and great views of the lake.
We would definitely stay here again!!


September 2018

Friends for life

We had an amazing stay. They have a beautiful home. We had such a great time exploring the town and lake. We feel so lucky to have spent time getting to know the hosts. We were able to make dinner for them a couple nights and really get to know them. We have made friends for life. My kids absolutely loved them and didn’t want to leave. I hope we can get together again in the near future.


September 2018

Slice of Heaven

We had such a lovely time here! There was another Boondocking family and we all had dinner together like a community. The place is right near Flathead Lake, so we were also able to get in a little kayaking. Thanks so much for the hospitality!!


September 2018

Pretty place

Patty and Rick were a pleasure to meet. When we got there they gave us places to go kayaking and bycicling. The one place they told has a beautiful sunset. Their son looked at our generator which we appreciated. Pretty area to visit.


August 2018

Wonderful experience!

A Little Piece of Heaven was wonderful. The place was so peaceful that it felt a lot like “home”. We regret not getting to meet The host couple in person but they were most accommodating on the phone and had everything arranged with the neighbor in case we needed anything during our stay. Polson is a perfect place to spend a few days with the massive lake and surrounding mountains. The people were friendly everywhere we went. This was our first BDW experience and it was just perfect!


July 2018

Incredible Hosts

We instantly felt welcomed and swapped stories over dinner. We’re glad they talked us into staying an additional night. Both nights the sunset over the mountains and lake was awesome. The parking spot was lovely, among the willow and spruce. Hope we get back this way again.


July 2018

Great Hosts

This was our second visit in a week and we couldn’t have asked for more. There is a laundry and showers not even 2 miles down the road which are clean and reasonably priced. Lots of great little stores in town to stroll around.
It was a pleasure to meet you and chat about your travels. Keep in touch and you are more than welcome to visit us anytime. Hope to return again one day.


June 2018

Peaceful and beautiful

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful part of the world. We were able to ride our bikes into town to explore some fantastic thrift and antique stores, walk around town and just have great conversations with our hosts. We hope to come back when you are back from Ireland but thanks for accepting our stay and loaning us your husband and fur baby.


June 2018

Great view and hospitality

Great view and hospitality, I appreciate the hosting allowing me to park for the evening. And what views mountains to the lake.
Very pleasant location
Thanks Richard


June 2018

Little piece of heaven

We enjoyed our first Boondockers Welcome stay very much! The property was lovely with trees and flowers, and we had a view of Flathead Lake. Richard was helpful with a water hookup and offer of electricity. He gave us directions and information about Polson.
Unfortunately we stayed only one night as we had an early morning appointment for RV repairs. We’d love to visit again,


June 2018

Polson is nice!

We had a wonderful stay w/MontanaChickie. The Polson area is a great destination. We enjoyed the National Bison Range as well as meals at Cherry's BBQ and Pete's Lakeview. Thanks


June 2018

Nice stay

Host was very Helpful and made sure we had a Comfortable stay with water and electric. Nice view of the lake. Got in rather late in the evening so didn't get a chance to visit much - maybe on our way back. Property is conveniently located next to the highway And only a couple miles from the Walmart. Thank you so much for the stay. You are welcome at our place in Florida if you make it down there.


April 2018

Peaceful property

Had a wonderful stay with Patty and Rick. They offered water and electricity and made us comfortable on their property. We can see the lake from the bus!


April 2018

Nice location, great mountain views

Super accommodation for a small rig even though the terrain was a little muddy because of the early season timing.
Great hosts, which I could have spent more time chatting.

Nice stay

Spent 2 nights.. nice location. Our hosts were very helpful. The site was roomy and would have had a great view if it werent for the smoke from the wildfires. Would recommend them as hosts and would be happy to meet them again.

Peacefull night

We only stay one night but it was one of quality! Tanks again for all the advise and things to know about Glacier National Park!

If we ever drive there again be sure we will stay over there again!


September 2017


This couple were genuinely kind and welcoming! They made sure we were settled in and took good care to orient us to the Flathead Lake area.

The kayacking on the lake was incredible! We shared a lovely meal with our hosts and made some new friends during our stay! Their little Yorkie-poo was absolutely precious!

We hope to host this gracious couple in return some day!

Fantastic Boondocking Hosts!

We stayed with MontanaChickie over the 4th of July and had a wonderful time. Their property is beautiful, comfortable, and they are so thoughtful about making a guests experience a positive one. We were able to access all of the surrounding sights and activities really easily. Thank you, Montana Chickie, for such a great experience!
