Friendly family

We enjoyed our stay, even though it was a short stay. Do recommend calling so he can show you where to turn around so you can back down to his house since it is a dead end street and you can’t turn around once you are down the street. We did see some deer and it’s right near the river with a nice view. If we make it back in this area again we would def stay here again.

Return visit

We stayed at Panhed 60’s wonderful riverfront location on our way west back in April. We enjoyed his company and hospitality so much that we stayed again on way home in September. A super suburban Chicago location and a very nice host.

Short and perfect

Even if the host wasn't there we were able to stay. Quiet place

Great Host

Panhed60 should have declined my request it would have been easier for him. It had been raining for several days and continued upon our arrival. He helped me spot the rv with it pouring down rain. As other have said, if you can't back up this is not the place for you. Wifi was easy to connect to. He hooked me up with 15amp elect. and offered H20. We had a great conversation many of our interest are the same for sure. Thanks again for your trouble and the spot Panhead 60. Maybe see ya in Texas some day.

Beautiful spot on the river

Our tight schedule didn’t allow time for sticking around, but sure wish we could have. This beautiful spot directly on the river was absolutely amazing! Thank you Panhed60 for hosting.

Fox River Getaway

Panhead60's spot along the banks of the Fox River is a good getaway. Level spot, frendly host, and chairs on the bank made for a pleasant stay.

The place is very beautiful! Dave, grandaughter Lilly, and all the very nice family - were fun, sharing, and giving. I look forward to an opportunity to stay with them again.
Thanks to you all!

Felt like home!!! So welcoming!

My husband and I stayed at Panhead60’s location on the beautiful river. We can’t say enough good things about the host and this location. We originally needed a safe place to park our bus while visiting a friend in Chicago but we actually ended up spending a good portion of our time there hanging out with Panhead60 and his family and even got a tour of this cute little town. Thank you for giving us a great place to park and great company. We will definitely be back!!

Great night's sleep. Very nice.

Lovely quiet parking space. Lush forest view out the front window from my Winnebago Travato. I recommend this located and would stay again. Host was very accommodating and eager to make me comfortable.

Lovely location along the river

Panhead60 was delightful host, fretting us warmly and even help me set up and level trailer. A nice quiet location along the Fox. Site is a nice retreat in midst of busy suburbia.

Wonderful host and place!

What a great stay! We had so much fun with Panhed. Beautiful property by the river, very quiet and close enough to Chicago. We had good laughs, great visit of Chicago and quiet time at night. Panhed is a wonderful host offering a warm welcome. Would love to go back in the future! Thank you soooo much for a perfect boondocking experience!

Beautiful location, great stay

This was a great stay, and host was very communicative and helpful. Great view of river, and nice spot. Our 24 foot Class C was able to get in no problem, and getting out wasn't too bad either.
