Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are a Christian family of 5 embarking on an adventure! In 2016, we purchased a 7 acre property 6 miles from downtown Wisconsin Dells after Jeff left his job with the railroad as Locomotive Engineer of 17 years to spend more time with family and friends and follow God's leading. We started our own automotive business in 2016, AutoVentures LLC. Our property includes a second home that we rent to a local church for the missionaries that come to work with the church. In 2018, we purchased the property across the street which includes a 1901 farmhouse - the original farmhouse to our first property. It has not been lived in for at least 25 years.
We completely gutted the farmhouse and slowly we are having it brought back to life. This second property also has a mobile home which we also rent to the same church. There is a large open field on this property that we also use for Boondockers. Once the farmhouse is complete, our family will reside there and our current house will be - yes, rented to the church as well. :) We look forward to more camping trips and adventures and are always thrilled to find a free place to park! We'd love to invite you to enjoy the same!

I'm glad my place worked out for you

Hi I wish I had gotten a chance to meet you guys. I did drive by and say your cool van and took a pic to show my daughter. I'm glad my place worked out for you guys as a place to stay in Green Bay! Your welcome back anytime! Tracy


July 2019

Your very private stay with us! Sorry we didn't get to meet you.

Our neighbor that assisted you said you guys were great! We couldn't even tell that you had been here, come back again, so we can meet you guys! David

Peaceful and convenient!

Our stay at Front Porch Farms was perfect. Their location is super convenient if you want to explore the Dells. Our host was absolutely amazing and let us know about Devil’s Lake for hiking, which turned out to be the best part of our entire stay in Wisconsin. We loved the fire pit area and enjoyed seeing the deer in the field.


September 2021

Grassy paradise!

Just stayed the night in a beautiful grassy field. Wish we could have stayed longer!


September 2021

Nicest family!

Lots and lots of space for any size RV. Easy access. Very friendly hosts, very welcoming. Would absolutely stay with them again. Thank you for having me!


September 2021

Quiet spot, close to the Wisconsin Dells

J and her husband have a Quiet little spot just a east of the river and 6 miles north of the Dells. Easy access and the field was hard even after a rain. Thanks! We enjoyed our stay.


September 2021

My kinda place!

They build custom Subaru engine powered race cars. Great conversation between a couple gear heads!


September 2021

Peaceful and relaxing stay

We loved our stay at Front Porch farms. The hosts were so friendly and nice. We stayed in the field across the road, which is a large beautiful grassy lawn with plenty of space to park and for the kids to run and play. Set back a good distance from the road, the field was easy to access, even for our large 5th wheel and the ground was quite level throughout so it was easy take our pick where to park. We had lots of room to turn around. The ground was plenty solid, although it did not rain while we were there. While staying there, we visited the Dells (about 10 minute drive) and Devils Lake State Park (about 30 minute drive). We had good cell / data signal on our Visible wireless (Verizon) phone, but our other phones (Republic Wireless and T-mobile) had no service. We enjoyed our relaxing stay and would definitely come back.


September 2021

Quiet stopover

FPF really has a great little setup! We loved the twinkle lights & deck area, awesome fire pit and private area to stop over for the night! Just a short scooter ride to downtown Dells! Would definitely return!


September 2021


We enjoyed this location; it was so peaceful. Lovely, friendly host. Easy access and a nice level site. The added picnic tables, green lawn, and firepit made it welcoming. We had a visit from the host's young daughter and she was delightful. She had a tour of our 5th wheel and pet our small dog. This is a really close location to Wisconsin Dells. We did the Riverwalk and the Upper Dells boat tour. The boat tour was amazing and is highly recommended. We would happily come back to this host location again.


September 2021

What a nice spot and family!

The spot is nestled in between their out buildings which makes for a comfortable place to park.

They were kind enough to let us use their fire pit and our kids even spent lots of time together.

They were quite friendly and welcoming and our time their was truly appreciated.

And what a cool Westfalia collection!


September 2021

Cute setup

Great Experience

August 2021

Spacious, quiet stay

We had a lovely long weekend at Front Porch Farms. This was the perfect location if you are looking to explore the Dells and only an hour from Madison, which is why we were visiting. The hosts were very kind and met us upon arrival. We parked in the field across the street and enjoyed the quiet solitude. Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with our family!


August 2021

A Wonderful, Quiet Night

After five full days of travel, Front Porch Farms was a needed rest stop. The hosts are quite friendly and accommodating. Their place is easy to find and maneuvering our 39' 5-ver into position was easily accomplished.

We awoke to steady rain, heavy at times, yet we had absolutely no trouble getting back out onto the road. We definitely would stay here again the next time we pass this way! 🤠🤗


August 2021

Very congenial

Our stay was pleasant and our hosts were congenial. We would stay with them again!


August 2021

Quiet and peaceful

Very nice host and a nice quiet place to stay. Very close to the Dells. Would definitely stay again.


August 2021

Nice stopover!

This was the perfect place to stay on our long drive from Chicago to Minnesota. Nice field and close to the town with many restaurants and activities. Host were friendly and easy to get in touch with!


August 2021

Pleasant stay....pleasant people.

I'm not very long winded when it comes to this kind of thing, so I'll just say that Jeff and Julie are wonderful people who have a beautiful spot for boondocking. If you are looking for a spot near the Wisconson Dells this is the one you should pick.


July 2021

Great stay

This was our first stay and it was excellent. Nice, welcoming hosts and an excellent base with easy access to fun family activities. We loved being able to use the field for the dogs to run around.


July 2021

Peaceful respite. Super quite neighbors!

We stayed 3 nights in a wide open field freshly mountain for us. The host greeted us warmly upon arrival and even let is view their Personal Westfalia.
Great people and a peaceful space.
Thank you again for Great first Boondockers Welcome experience!


July 2021

Quick Overnight Stay

The host was very friendly and welcoming. Our stay was a very short overnight stay. Sight was level.


July 2021

Wow! Wisconsin Dells!

Had an Awesome stay at Front Porch Farms! Very quiet, and laid back. Had a great conversation with the host. But if you want some real excitement take the short drive into town. It's incredible! I've never seen so many water parks, theme parks, and resorts in one place! It's a kids Vegas!!


July 2021

Very Pleasant !

Great place near the Dells with a very nice family! We had a great space with good combo of sun/shade. Worked perfectly for our solar needs.


July 2021

Kindest people, great place

Their field is nice and wide, the open area is perfect for relaxing. Our puppy also enjoyed the wide space. The hosts are the kindest people! Our first BW experience is truly memorable.


July 2021

Nice stop!

Nice place to stop for the night.
Close to Wisconsin Dells.


July 2021

Unexpected repeat

Our plans changed unexpectedly but J&J graciously let us stay another night, as long as we didn’t mind that they had planned a gathering right next to us that night. We accepted and glad we did. There was a fun group of international students and open Mike night so we got free entertainment also! Thanks again!


July 2021


Had a very peaceful stay - nice grassy spot and shady picnic tables! Thanks J


July 2021


We had a great stay. Very quiet. Close to Wisconsin dells. I would recommend this and stay again if in the area.


July 2021

Great Stay!

These are wonderful folks and we always enjoy our stay at their farm.


June 2021

Peaceful stay

The hosts met me as I pulled into the driveway, they gave me several options of where to park… Plenty of room. Lots of shade, and a very quiet and peaceful location. I had a good night and was gone early in the morning. A quick stay, but I would gladly stay here again. Because I have both Sprint and Verizon capabilities, I was fine… But I will warn others that there is absolutely no Sprint service here! Limited over the air TV channels. I think ABC was the only Network I was able to pick up.

As I was sitting peacefully in a chair next to my RV with my dog, some animal did whiz by. Maybe it was a badger…After all, this is the Badger State. I didn’t get a good enough look at it…I was too busy trying to calm down the dog. Maybe it was just a cat, but I’m gonna think it was a badger!


June 2021

Very peaceful place

We had a great nights sleep and overall enjoyed our stay here. The hosts met us as we arrived which was really nice. Very kind people who we enjoyed the opportunity to meet!


June 2021

Great place!!

We really enjoyed our stay!!
Directions to Front Porch Farms was easy to follow. We found a great spot for our 40ft RV and tow; the spot was nice and level with some shade from the trees around. Our host was friendly and offered us some suggestions on the sights and attractions in the area; which we ended up doing and enjoying every bit of it. To our host, we really enjoyed meeting you and your family. Thank you so much for your hospitality!! We would love to come back!


June 2021

Super Kind and Helpful!

We needed a place to sleep in our van as we make our way west. Super Kind folks as we had bin flying off rack and construction traffic delays. We didn't get in until 10pm. Perfectly flat and firm field, slept with windows open! Highly recommend this host!


June 2021

Can't wait to stay again.

Had an amazing first time boondockers experience. Parked in there field. It was pretty quiet and we where able to look at the stars. The hosts where really friendly.


June 2021

Fantastic Hosts

Although our hosts were on vacation of their own they allowed us to stay. It was a very quiet area, pretty decent room (We had a 35 foot 5th wheel total tow length 45 feet) just under 13 feet high. They have a nice bonfire, grassy area available for use. Although we did not utilize this area I could see easily doing so in the future if we are back in the area again.


May 2021

Welcoming family

Loved our stay at front porch farm! Easy to find, large field for us to park and let our kids and puppy run around. Our daughter was sad to leave after making a new friend! Hopefully we can visit again soon!


April 2021

Awesome Stay!

We had a great stay here! Super friendly hosts and a very nice property. Our dog was able to run around the field here and he loved it! Very quiet, and close to the downtown Dell area. Highly recommend staying here!


April 2021

Great stop

We had a very nice stay here. Host was very accommodating. Great location too. Several state parks in the area. Will definitely stay again if we are in the area again.


October 2020

Great location and accommodating hosts

We were able to effectively communicate and although we didn't meet face to face due to weather, we appreciated the hospitality.
Hope to be able to connect with these hosts another time when we can interact directly and get a chance to get to know one another.


October 2020

Relaxing and fun!

The kids had a great time riding their bikes around the property and the family was very welcoming.


October 2020

The perfect stay!

Thank you jrobewesty! Your field provided the perfect place to camp. Flat, beautiful, and close to town. Thank you for everything!


October 2020

Awesome stay!

Spent a couple of nights here, had a great time. Spent the day at nearby Devils Lake. Extremely nice people, plus they restore VW vans, what’s not to like!!


September 2020

Very comfortable overnight stay

We had a great overnight stay on the way to the Boundary Waters. We enjoyed talking with the hosts.


September 2020

Great spot close to the Wisconsin Dells

We enjoyed our stay. The hosts were welcoming and showed us where to park. We especially enjoyed their large fire pit and the mowed paths that we used to walk our dogs. Although we were passing through on our way to Michigan, I could definitely see this being a great base to explore "The Dells."


September 2020

Simple relaxation

Great to have a friendly family to share their Awesome outdoor space for an evening! Plenty of room to spread out and relax! Thanks so luck!


September 2020

September 2020

A peaceful and welcoming place

We enjoyed chatting with the hosts. They were very welcoming. A place with lots of charm.


August 2020

Quiet, pleasant site for hopefully stopover

Julia met us upon arrival and showed spot best for us for the evening. As we are 73 feet when towing, it was appreciated.


August 2020

Great spot w/WiFi

Nice level spot next to the barn, behind the house. They gave us the WiFi password , which was so wonderful. Unfortunately, we didn’t have a chance to get to know our hosts, due to COVID-19 & social distancing. Thanks for providing a nice place to stop for the night.


August 2020

Great location

Perfect spot to see all in and around the Dells. Appreciate the recommendations and hospitality J&J provided. Thanks again!!


August 2020

Good Stop

This was a great place to stop. Plenty of space and peaceful. Very friendly hosts. Couldn’t interact a whole lot because of the pandemic.


August 2020

Super stay!

This is the nicest family! They accepted us on very short notice and were extremely welcoming. We had a nice level spot to land, and my husband especially enjoyed talking to Mr. Host about his business, restoring classic VW vans. The older kids in the family hung out by a campfire in the evening, singing and strumming a guitar. It was a great stay! Thank you!


August 2020

Wisconsin Dells Stay

Great hosts - good communication. We really enjoyed staying at their farm - quiet and peaceful. Could really see the stars. We had a great time. Thank you!


July 2020

jrobewesty stay

Had an excellent stay with these hosts and a visit with their youngest daughter discussing rock painting.

Their location was an excellent spot to launch our Wisconsin Dells activities.

Took them up on their advice and had lunch at Kimberly's. We ordered the "Jeff special" (3 steak tacos) as well as an enchilada meal. Both were excellent.

Thanks J&J ...


July 2020

perfect place to camp in the dells

This is a very nice spot to boondock, the family is absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to accommodate my family


July 2020

Very peaceful

The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in their open field where we able to use our satellite dish. Pleasant hosts and would highly recommend.


July 2020

Pleasant stay in a country setting

J & J were great hosts as we wondered our way up through the Dells. With no particular travel itinerary (we are full timers) they accepted our host request with only a day's advance notice. We stopped by in the morning & J came out of his shop to say hello and provide advice, as we were seeking more natural, wooded settings, or possible places to ride our bikes, rather than planning to hit the more popular tourist attractions in the town of Wisconsin Dells. We came back in the early evening, made dinner in our rig and had a nice relaxing evening in their shaded back yard. Although we only stayed the one night, we had the opportunity to have several nice conversations with both. This couple seem both very caring and giving. Not only to the RV community via Boondockers welcome but also through their community outreach to an international community that works in the Dells during the high tourist season. When you have time to get away, if you ever travel into North Carolina, don't forget our place is always available to you!


July 2020

Close to Dells, Friendly

Convenient access to the Wisconsin Dells makes jrobewesty’s backyard a perfect stop while in Wisconsin. The private, grassy area behind the front building is very comfortable and provides a bit of a sound barrier to the road traffic and the work shop. There is a very nice dog day care facility close by on the way to the Wisconsin Dells for your dog to enjoy while you are riding duck boats in town. They also have a mowed grass path in the back for a short private walk along the back property line, perfect for a private stroll or a dog walk. We appreciated our stay and would love a chance to visit again.


July 2020

Thank You!

We had a quiet afternoon and evening of rest at this location. We were just passing through and were not looking for any activities. Great WiFi so we were able to catch up on emails and watch a little TV.


July 2020

Crazy times but we endure!!

Benji and I had such a wonderful time! So peaceful here! Added up to a great night's sleep for the rest of my trip! I love your new stage! 😂Thank you for everything! Im so fortunate to have friends like you! Feel better both of you!


July 2020

Beautiful space!

We had to social distance, but we were so close to the Dells and gone most of the time getting all the kitchy and cool scenic experiences we could in the time we had. It was so refreshing to come home to a camper with our opposing slides both out! We are so grateful for the opportunity to stay here!


September 2019

A story filled and blessed stay

The couple who host this site are warm, welcoming and oh so helpful.
I would return. The area is close to everything. A fire pit, tables and an eclectic surrounding all have stories that are heart felt and community minded. They were more than helpful when I needed assist and offered suggestions for small owner run cafes. There is a low traffic farm road boardering the property that offers a senic and great opportunity to stretch your legs.


September 2019

Close to Wisconsin Dell's tourist area.

A little rustic but very convenient location. Hosts are very friendly and made sure we were comfortable.


August 2019


Nice stay over with a collector/ restorer of rvs Lots of space, adjacent to a large vacation area. Would have booked more time to enjoy if I’d known what was here. Great group of people too.


August 2019

Very enjoyable

We enjoyed our stay very much. While close to hwy 13 our site was very quiet and dark. This made for excellent sleeping

Willing to help with no hassle!

Upon arrival we were kindly greeted. Our hosts offered assistance when needed without asking and they also shared with us some fun ideas for us while we stayed. There were others staying here but you couldn't tell. There is a large fire pit that we enjoyed using and we were able to park in a level location that provided shade at all times. This was out first boondocking experience and we highly recommend this host and location!


August 2019

Very nice and level spot

Not far off.i 94. Friendly folks. Told us in advance of an event that might be noisy but we chose to stay anyway and enjoyed the festivities from out of the way.


August 2019

Kids' Dream!

Our kids had a great time playing with their kids as well as another family staying there. Very nice family!


August 2019

A Bit of Nostalgia

With late 60's Dodge Travico (sp) Motorhome & VW Beetles in their yard, brought back childhood & college memories ...sweet! Hosts are friendly, spot is level, and convenient to the Dells.


August 2019

Great experience on our first BW stay

This is our first time using boondockers welcome and we had a great experience. Along with another family of boondockers, we stayed at this large 6 acre property conveniently located on route 13 less than 20 minutes north of Wisconsin Dells. Our kids made friends with the others quickly and there were a trampoline, stage, playground, and campfire to keep all of the kids entertained throughout the evening. We stayed up late by the campfire making smores and talking to everyone until the kids went down. Overall a great experience!


July 2019

Great base close to the WI Dells

Host showed us where to park and had easy in and out for all size rigs. They even had a nice picnic and campfire area on site. We loved the trash receptacles they had available. Very close to Wisconsin Dells


May 2019

Easy stop off I94

Had a brief stop here on a cool and rainy night. We were given great directions to their location, including where to pull in and park for the night so we had an easy drive out in the morning. Would definitely stop again if we are in the area! Thanks!


October 2018

Great overnight stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. We were warmly welcomed, had plenty of space to park and even managed to refill our freshwater tank. Our hosts couldn't have been nicer, despite being in the middle of some time sensitive projects. They have a fabulously picnic and fire pit area that we didn't have a chance to take advantage of, but looks like it would be a lot of fun. Would definitely stay here again.


September 2018

A Wonderful Family

We truly enjoyed staying at their lovely property. We felt welcome every moment and it was fun chatting and getting acquainted. We asked them concerning a place to attend services on Sunday and they invited us to their church, where we had a blessed time and were again made to feel very welcome.

They have an amazing auto/camper restoration business and I enjoyed learning about all that he is doing. Our little daughter and their's immediately became inseparable and enjoyed playing together. Boon-docking at their place has definitely been one of the memorable parts of our Journey.

End of a long day!

Easy in and out! Beautiful location. Met Julie who was super nice! Slept great! Thank you!!


August 2018

Great experience!

Wonderful stay overnight! Everyone was so friendly. Great site with a fire pit - we were too tired for a fire but otherwise would have definitely used it. Convenient location to the Dells and for us to get back on the interstate. Would love to stay here again and highly recommend!


July 2018

Very Pleasant Stay!

This was a really nice spot with plenty of room and privacy. This is located on a fairly busy state highway but we were sheltered from the highway and the noise was minimal. I was able to use my AT&T data service the whole time so we did not need to use the wifi. Very convenient location close to Wisconsin Dells. They also offered some great recommendations on nearby attractions. We did not get much chance to visit with our hosts as we were pretty busy but our daughter thoroughly enjoyed playing for a while with their daughter. We had a very nice stay and we deeply appreciate the hospitality!


July 2018

Great little oasis near Wisconsin Dells

We loved this little oasis. We spent most of our time in Wisconsin Dells and this was a great place to get some much needed rest at the end of our busy days. Quiet and tucked away from the road. There is a nice grassy area with firepit, chairs and picnic tables. Our hosts were very kind and we highly recommend this spot.


July 2018

Nice Host

The host were more than accommodating. Quiet area and a pull through. It was a relaxing stay.


July 2018

Great Experience

Great place to boondock. Close to Wisconsin Dells and easy to get to from I-94 Also easy in and out of their property with our motor home and tow vehicle. Appreciated the good WiFi service although satellite TV reception can be spotty due to trees on property. Friendly hosts
