Great stop

Had a great stay here. Super friendly host and super sweet pup. It was a quiet place to sleep, especially for being in such a central location.


September 2020


Host was very generous. Electricity and sewer dump were convenient. They were also very quick to respond to our inquiries. Road noise wound down late. Nice walk to shops and food trucks. I would definitely stay here again.


August 2020

Good city spot!

Host had excellent communication and was very generous with offering all hookup options. The dump was a bit of a challenge, by building in the corner, which is uphill from where a vehicle can park, but we made it work and were so happy for the convenient location! Location felt safe, and was quiet.

A Little Piece of History

Radiuswoodguy not only provided a free, safe place to stay in the heart of a very expensive city but imparted knowledge and a little history to boot. Highly recommend staying here and having a chat with Radiuswoodguy.

Awesome location in Portland!

Super friendly host, made sure we had everything we needed. Awesome location for exploring Portland, walking distance to shops and restaurants (and coffee!) in Alberta neighborhood and easy bus ride to downtown. Go get ice cream at Salt & Straw!


September 2019

Best stay you can find center Portland

Unfortunately we didn’t get to meet French in person but he made sure that everything was perfect! Couldn’t imagine a better place to stay so close to the center of Portland. This was our first time using Boondockers Welcome, and it was a great experience! Very cool and safe neighborhood . Greetings from Belgium and thank you so much!


September 2019

Great location

Just what we needed to visit Portland!


September 2019

Fun location!

Welcoming and warm host in a great walkable location. And the cutest dog ever! We have an 18’ teardrop and we just squeaked into the spot. Anything longer would block the sidewalk.

Woodshop Magic

What a perfect gem to find in the city! Close to everything and a great neighborhood to walk around. French even has time to give us a super special tour around his shop. He and Jaffy are extremely talented. Thanks again for hosting, we loved it!


September 2019

A Great Visit

Two night stay was booked. We were surprised to find the previous boondockers hadn't left and had gone somewhere in their car, which left us scratching our heads as the area is not easy to park a rig in.
Our host had been in contact with us to let us know what was going on, and was ready to leave the coast on his long weekend to take care of us!
However our host's friend/neighbour graciously invited us to use his parking area for the night as they didn't leave.
The following day we moved and settled into our assigned spot.
We left Portland having met two wonderful people and their little dogs and a feeling of being well cared for!!
Many Thanks to both of them!!


August 2019

Quiet stay near a vibrant neighborhood

French was really an exceptional host. Like other reviewers said, he welcomes RV travelers and full-timers with open arms. The parking spot is nice and quiet and you are literally 5 min-walk away from North Mississippi, a street with plenty of coffee shops, restaurants and breweries. Highly recommended!


August 2019


We had a great stay with a friendly host and his sidekick :) thank you


August 2019

Wonderful urban stay

Great guy super helpful


June 2019

Wonderful stay in Portland

These guys are great! We were able to walk around the Mississippi area from the parking spot and catch a great show at Mississippi Studios and simply walk back at the end of the night to sleep. I spent a lot of time seeing the inside of their amazing woodshop and making compressed logs with French for our woodstove. There's some noise on the street through the night but nothing too bothersome. We had a great time hanging out and exploring the area. Hoping we can get back to see them all soon!


June 2019

Wonderful stay

We wanted to stash our trailer somewhere safe while riding our bikes around and this was perfect. Radius Wood Guy was super friendly and the location was perfect. We’d love to come back. Thanks!!!!


May 2019

Great Spot

The hosts were very friendly and interesting to talk to. The location was a short walk to Mississippi Street restaurants, bars and shops. It was very easy/convenient to get on the highway. The hot shower was nice to have. The street noise died down about 10:30 and we had no trouble sleeping. We would enjoy staying here again.


May 2019

Great as always!

Wonderful location! Hosts are generous, friendly, flexible, and offer engaging conversation! Please take care of these wonderful hosts and their property and be respectful if you stay here!


April 2019

Fun in Portland

Great place to stay when visiting Portland! French and James are great hosts. James told us about an awesome blues bar, we enjoyed the music and food. Within walking distance of the Mississippi district and a short drive to anywhere in Portland. If you get a chance go to Council Crest Park, wonderful views of Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams and the city. Would definitely stay here again!


April 2019

Great location even better hosts

French was an absolute pleasure of a host. He was so helpful and inviting. He helped me run and install a 12v and usb socket in my motorhome. Shower was a great add on. Would stay here again in a heart beat

Great stay in Portland!

We love staying here because 1) the host is kind and generous , 2) it’s close to the Mississippi district with lots of fun and amazing food, and 3) transit options to downtown or out to other enticing neighborhoods are plentiful.

The Best Sooooo [email protected]

I'm not even sure how to start..🙄. The location was perfect close to everything that I wanted to do including tons of Oregon food trucks. French, was an amazing host. I kept popping in and out of a shop sometimes for 5 minutes and then sometimes for over an hour just to have conversations with him. Unlimited hot water in the shower he provided. And a super cute, friendly little dog. Thank you French for everything from your company to your insight into rving. There is no doubt I will be back!


November 2018

Best spot in Portland!

French and James we're great! I was fascinated by their workshop and the stories the had to share. The shop is in a really fantastic part of town with a lot going on. They let me use the shower and sent me away with some wood burning bricks made with a hydrolic press from their sawdust, and French said he wouldn't take any compensation. I definitely recommend this place!


October 2018

Another Great Stay

French is a friendly and talented host. He gave me a tour of his woodworking shop, and showed me prior projects. The parking area at his shop is very close to the part of Portland where I wanted to be.


October 2018

Good People

I'm so grateful to French and James for all their help and hospitality. And also to Morgan, the dog, for all the smiles he gave me. I was just beginning my nomad journey when I stayed here. While there, I discovered a water leak. French helped me through it. He assisted with finding the leak and explained how to fix it. He researched the right parts and let me use his tools. Even went to the hardware store for me. James was a huge help in getting it all put back together. I had recently bought the rig and wasn't yet familiar with it. By the time I left, everything was working and I was well-prepared for my journey. This was a wonderful, relaxing place to stay while I did all the things I needed to do. And who can complain about a shower in the shop with 80 gallons of hot water?! Thanks so much for everything guys! I hope our paths cross again soon.


October 2018

Awesome guys!

Thanks so much to French and James! We had a wonderful stay :)


October 2018

Friendly host ans good stay

We could highly recommend this host and wish all the best!

Urban Camping At Its Finest

French is a very accommodating, welcoming and friendly host, along with his shop dog. His shop was centrally located while visiting friends and the Mississippi District. Just south of his location is a very vibrant area of shops, pubs and restaurants. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.


September 2018

Super Generous Host!

French and his colleagues at the wood shop were incredibly generous and hospitable! Such an amazing spot in a very cool Portland neighborhood!


September 2018

Awesome place to stay!

The guys were really welcoming and their shop was great. We would definitely stay again and recommend to others!

Hospitality at its finest!

Host was so so generous. We had a great stay and enjoyed inner Portland.


August 2018

Friendly Welcoming Host

Wonderful spot! Secure bike storage! Nice neighborhood and very quiet overnight. Walkable, bikable area with bus stop almost at door.
Thanks for letting me hang out fir 2 nights.


August 2018

Great location with generous hosts!

We stayed at this location again while in the area as our other plans didn't work out and we enjoyed ourselves so much we came back :) Thank you!!


August 2018

Very generous host!

This spot is in a great location - walking distance to all kinds of restaurants and shops! Close to public transit too. Parking is tight - we parked on an angle and we are 19' plus bike rack. Host is very easy going and accommodating - they want to ensure you enjoy yourself while visiting the area and strive to offer as many amenities as possible. Very cool shop and enjoyed the tour of their craft. Thanks so much!


August 2018

Pay it forward folks!

We couldn't have asked for a better experience at Radiuswoodguy's place. French is a generous hearted human being and meeting both him and James, was a complete pleasure. They are both helpful, friendly, and caring individuals. The location is fabulous! Thank you French!


August 2018

Pay It Forward Host!

We couldn’t have asked for a better experience or location. French is a generous hearted guy who obviously cares about people without making a show of it. Down to earth and friendly, he and James, were a pleasure to meet and interact with. His shop is incredible! Thank you French, it was a gift to meet you.!


July 2018

Amazing location and spectacular host!

We requested to stay and got confirmation within minutes!

The spot is outside a shop on a quiet street right in the middle of the wonderful Mississippi Ave district. within walking distance of tons of bars, restaurants and shopping. We requested 2 days and we were kindly let stay another night. We spent the days exploring downtown Portland and had a wonderful time. Our host gave us great information, and was a pleasure to stay with.
We would not hesitate to recommend this host and would love to stay again! Thanks again!


June 2018

Right in the heart of Portland!

French and James were great to work with. I mainly interacted with James and he was incredibly warm and welcoming. The wifi and shower was also definitely a most welcome amenity on my trip. They're located right near a bunch of great restaurants too so being able to walk was super convenient. It's a little noisy at night since it's off a main road, but definitely will stay here again when I'm in Portland!


June 2018

Great location

As soon as we pulled in we were welcomed with open arms. The host is awesome. Bonus: offered the use of his shower in how wood shop! Most welcome development after a long day of travel. We stayed two nights, had electric, water and a dump station available to us. We he host allowed us to keep our bikes in his shop too which was nice as the y would have been sticking out into the sidewalk and it was extra prevention against theft. If you’re heading to Oregon and want to check out Portland this is a most awesome place to stay. Thank you!!!!!


May 2018

Such hospitality!

We had a wonderful stay and he couldn’t have been more accommodating and helpful. Really fun neighborhood. We’ll be back for sure and hope to return the favor when you’re next in our neighborhood.


May 2018

Always responds and tries to be available...very nice

I was not able to attend his invitation a few weeks ago, but do look forward to next time! Thanks!

Warm, urban hospitality

We enjoyed staying at Radius Wood Guy. He was very helpful and welcoming.

Neighborhood is great! Very safe and full of life. Do bring earplugs. You are parked near a busy street.

Lots of fun to be in Portland.

These guys know whats up- lovely place to crash when visiting Portland. We will certainly be back!

Yes, they are friendly, but I think the location is overrated.

I was going to stay there and received a warm e-welcome, but my impression was that it's just a sloped, small parking space next to the street in a sort of undesirable area.
