Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I was a Navy Junior, Navy wife, and still love traveling. I have lived here for 27 years on 50 acres. We did raise horses, and I raised sheep. I miss them. I spin and dye wool, weave, and just lost my last ewe. I am still active, drive the tractor, and pull a 26 ft. trailer.

Skills & Expertise to Share

No expertise but I do spin, dye, and weave fiber. Knit a lot. And I had a 1 acre organic garden for years.

Toofar's Pets

Favorite Boondocking Locations

This is a beautiful county to boondock in. There are a lot of Forest service campgrounds and thousands of acres of BLM.

Nice overnight

Our overnight at the Too Far Ranch was just what we needed after a long day of driving. The circular drive made it very easy to maneuver. Plenty of shade to help cool off too. Thank you for a lovely stay.


June 2021

A beautiful spot

Our hostess greeted us outside her beautiful flower garden. There are benches around the property where you can sit in the shade and enjoy the view. And the cutest puppy I think I've ever seen completes the friendliness of this stop. We've been here before and would love to come back and visit again sometime.


June 2021

Beautiful Views

Just a one night stay, but our host was charming and friendly. We woke to a few cows lowing in the next field while enjoying magnificent views. A little windy, but highly recommended.

Wonderful location for second stay!

This is such a wonderful location, beautiful gardens, birds, surrounding fields, cows, and easy loop driveway and lovely 'campsite'. It was a great pleasure to be here a second time even though it was only a quick stop-over. The hospitality and great communication is greatly appreciated!

Perfect location for our 40ft 5th wheel. Gorgeous sunset and Shirley Jo is charming and welcoming.

A peaceful and beautiful ranch setting

She is a amazing woman and a gracious host. Her knowledge of the local and surrounding areas is very informative and brings appreciation to this part of the country. It was a quiet and peaceful stay. Would visit again.

Wonderful spot. Great host.

Great spot overlooking Goose Lake. Very quiet, awoke to the gentle sounds of the cows nearby. Shirley Jo was very welcoming. Thank you for sharing your corner of paradise!

Cows. Sheep, and the moonshine on the lake

A exceedingly pleasant stay with toofar. After providing a nice campsite and electricity, Shirley Jo about the sheep and cows in the surrounding fields. As I settled in for the night, i think the cows were drinking margaritas and singing and dancing until the wee hours. I would recommend staying with toofar to all boondockers.

An awesome stay for this Aussie couple

We enjoyed our stay with Toofar. Our host was most welcoming. The view of the mountains and lake were a highlight at sunset. The blackberries were not only a favourite but also a bonus. Thanks for the cobbler.

What a gracious host. all the animals were fun to watch and the scenery was gorgeous! Would definitely stay there again.


September 2019

Wonderful host!!

We stayed two nights at Too Far Ranch, and our host was wonderfully accommodating, she even made blackberry cobbler for both of her Boondockers. The views, and sunsets were spectacular and watching cattle in the valley and sheep right next door was soothing. We would definitely stay again, the area was beautiful and our host wonderful.


September 2019


Our hostess was SO welcoming and generous sharing her bounty of blackberries. I was in heaven harvesting And eating them. We arrived in time to enjoy our supper outdoors taking in the view of Goose Lake and the sunset. We chose to assist her in trimming her wild rose bush to open up her sunset view. We look forward to a return visit in the future.

Too Far Ranch, too good to be true.

Great place to stay, relaxing surroundings with beautiful views 360 degrees. Our host Shirley Jo couldn't be more gracious. Would advise anyone traveling on Hwy. 395 in So. Oregon to stay at this beautiful ranch.

Much appreciated kindness!

We were very grateful for our request – for one mere night at short notice after we had to change plans - to be accepted, and at a beautiful rural setting, like being in farmers fields! Many thanks for good previous communications, the facilities and lovely stay.

Kind and Comfortable

Our host was so kind. We enjoyed a few hours of visiting over tea with this gracious and helpful host. The place is beautiful too, looking out on the lake and mountains. Since it was snowing, she recommended we stay another day. Thank you!

Beatuful Location & Lovely Host

My stay at toofarranch was short, but pleasant. The location is beautiful with lake on the west & mountains on the east, & plenty of room to stretch out. I would stay again.

Apple pie

We kept TooFar informed as to our arrival, she saw us settled & invited us over for fresh homemade apple pie after we had our dinner. We enjoyed her company & advice on routes, etc. Thank you for hosting us TooFarRanch..


August 2018


We had a lovely boondockers experience at the TooFar ranch. The views were wonderful and our Hostess Shirley was a delight. We peppered her with questions and she willingly shared her story and the history of the TooFar ranch. And we got to pick fresh blackberries off of her bushes. Thankyou Shirley
The RV site was an easy in and out which was important to us as we do not have much experience trailering.


August 2018

Unforgettable Sunsets

Horses, sheep, Larry Llama, apple trees, blackberries, vista views and a gracious host allowed us to relax and enjoy this part of Oregon. Thankful for a great stay.


August 2018


What a wonderful host. It is too far. But. That is just how I love it. Lots of room has internet. Which is grand. And the phone works. Verizon. I love the wide open space.

Delightful Stay in Outback Oregon

Shirley was a fantastic host and the font of all knowledge for southern Oregon :) We had a great time and became firm friends and hope to stay in touch. The location was just ideal for a relaxing stay and facilities were good. Our host took us on trips and even showed us how to spin yarn ! There will certainly be some "yarns" to come out of our stay with the wonderful Shirley !


July 2018

The Way It Should Be

The hostess was great! Beautiful property, charming and friendly welcome. We were headed to Turpin Meadows Ranch in Moran, Wy. She wanted a report on the ranch, but I don't have her email.
Highly recommended, we had a lovely time. Michael/Joan Good

Great stay!

Thank you so much for hosting our family! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with you!


May 2018

A welcome surprise,

What a wonderful spot in Lakeview OR on Goose Lake. The site is beautiful and the hostess Shirley is even better! Our first time trying Boondockers Welcome and we’re sure glad we did.Two choices to pick from to put our 45 foot rig. A great circular driveway and free range horse. After we got settled, Shirley joined us for a wonderful glass of wine in the sunshine overlooking her stunning property. A great visit about people and places and family and friends. A new friend made and a great spot found in Oregon.

Awesome stay!

We spent 2 nights here and had an awesome time! Right on the stateline with a beautiful park 2 milesaway. We were the very first boondockers here and would recommend it to anyone wanting a calm and serene place. You can hear coyotes at night and rooster in the morning and open the door of the rv to see goats walking around with their friend Llama! Overall perfect place! Sorry for the late review! Hope to meet again maybe in Pahrump!
