We discovered the boondocking life seven years ago when spending our first winter in a fifth wheel exploring the SW United States. Since then, we've spent five winters in the south and have also hauled our current trailer to various destinations in Western Canada. We travel in the winter and spend the spring/summer/fall seasons on our small farm on the Alberta prairie riding horses, growing hay, and enjoying the many birds that have made our property their home. Our children all have four legs — two dogs, three horses, and two cats. We enjoy music, particularly folk, bluegrass, country, and blues, and even play and sing a little ourselves.

Northern Hitchhikers's Pets

We travel with 2 medium-sized dogs and have 3 horses and 2 barn cats at home.

Northern Hitchhikers's Rig

We have a 2007 29.5' Hitchhiker fifth wheel trailer with two slides on one side and one on the other. Our tow vehicle is a 2014 Dodge Ram. We sometimes tow a 16' trailer with a Yamaha UTV behind the fifth wheel. Despite our double trailer rig, we do not require a pull-through spot as the UTV trailer can be easily disconnected and moved around as needed.

Wonderful place to stay and very welcoming

Good grassy spot with 30 amp hookup. Plenty of room. Nice scenery. It is about a 6 mile trek down a good gravel road. I had to use their gps coordinates as my Garmin wouldn’t deal with the address.

Peaceful nice place

Our stay was awesome, it is a nice and quiet place. Theresa and Nillund are very friendly and helpful people. We recommend this place when you want to visit Calgary. We liked the horses in front of our campervan.

Calm Country

The Northern Hitchhikers were very hospitable and friendly. They let us meet their horses and they shared their experience with the area even giving us some coupons for the local attractions out of the couple of choices we were considering. The spot was very level and easy to get into. We would definitely stay here again if we are passing through the area.

Great hosts

We spent 2 nights here in prairie and took a day trip to Banff. We were their first boondockers an d they made things very easy for us. Directions were precise and they were very deligient with communications. Really enjoyed our time here and the conversation with our hosts.
We would love to connect again in the future
