Short but sweet visit

Pam has a great spot! Plenty of room, water, and electricity which is always a bonus!

Really is a Piece of Heaven

We really enjoyed our stay and meeting our host. She was very helpful getting our rig in and is an extremely nice person. It is a beautiful, secluded location that provides a great nights rest. We hope to meet Pam again in the future!


August 2021

Quiet, Private, beautiful!

A great hostess and her property is just beautiful!! Thanks for opening your property to us, if we’re in the area again and need a safe & serene place to stay we will come again! ☺️


July 2021

Beautiful gardens truly a piece of Heaven

Driveway and circle in front of house a little tight, but we were able to navigate it with our Fith Wheel and we are rookies. Pam and Gary are both very friendly and welcoming. We also enjoyed the Wheel of Time museum that is nearby. Cannot say enough about how beautiful their property is.


July 2021

Loved meeting Pndldy!

We had very enjoyable conversation with Pndldy about plants, travel, hummingbirds, pets… a very quiet restful night at Pam’s Piece of Heaven! We would definitely return!


July 2021

Pam’s Piece of Heaven

Wow! Pam’s Piece of Heaven was beautiful and so peaceful. We enjoyed our stay!


July 2021

Quiet and Comfortable

We had a quiet and comfortable overnight stay here. Although it rained quite a bit, there was no mud, and all went well. Very hospitable people, lovely hosts.


July 2021


Staying here actually felt like a little mini vacation!
It is private, spacious and you are completely surrounded by nature. Very quiet and peaceful. Close to restaurants but you still have that quiet, out-in-the-country feel.
Our hosts helped us hook up, chatted with us, gave us some advice and we definitely learned a thing or two 😉!
If we are EVER in the area, it would be a no brainer to come back here!


June 2021

Quiet Comfortable Stay

This was our first Boondockers stay and it was great. Our hosts were very helpful with the reservation and communication before our stay. Their property is beautiful and we felt at home.


June 2021

Great stay

Had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend. The site was beautiful and had power. I also really enjoyed our conversation as well as feeding the fish. What a great host, I would definitely stay again.


June 2021

What an amazing Place

This is a beautiful place to stay. The hostess is so sweet and welcoming. She gifted us her 50 amp plug in so we could use the microwave. I hope to stay here again. ❤️❤️


June 2021


What a beautiful home and garden! Our hosts had a sweet spot for us to park our rig in front of the barn with a private shaded picnic table and chairs. Sweet!


June 2021

Magical Place

Such a peaceful and beautiful place in the woods. Our host couldn't have been more gracious nor our stay more memorable.


June 2021

Pam was very sweet

We had a short stay but she was very sweet! Her property is beautiful!


June 2021

Perfect stop

Pam’s piece of heaven is a quiet respite that provided a comfortable night’s stay. Surrounded by gigantic oak monoliths and lovely coy pond. Wonderful hosts. We will stay again.


June 2021

Yes, it was heaven

One of the most beautiful places we have stayed. Oak trees were magnificent. Pam was a warm and friendly host. Would love to stay there again.


June 2021

Beautiful space

I will be back if in the area. Beautiful grounds and very nice host.

Wonderful stay

This was my 1st stay using Boondockers Welcome & I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Pam is very accommodating & welcoming, not to mention her property is a garden wonderland. Will definitely stay again when traveling . Thanks so much for offering a safe place to sleep while on the road.


April 2021


Quiet cute location.


April 2021

It's a prefect little place.

Our hosts were very welcoming. Its is a nice in the country side. Our host came and showed us where to park and came out and talked with us the next day. They even brought out a picnic table. It was quiet and on a beautiful property that seems like our host put allot of work into. I highly recommend the stay here. Lovely couple.


March 2021

Very nice stay at a quiet home

I enjoyed my stay at Pam’s Piece of Heaven. I believe it was Pam who showed me in and was pleasant during my stay, highly recommended.


October 2020

Very welcoming and friendly

Many options for parking! Beautiful setting there was dirt bike noise but only during the early evening. Great place to go for a nice nature walk 20 minutes away at Forest Park Nature Center. Thanks, hope to spend time there again.


October 2020

Awesome experience 🥰

This was our first time using Boondockers Welcome and the first time we used our new to us coach. Pndldy and her husband went above and beyond to help us set up our coach and flatten our learning curve. The setting is peaceful and beautiful. You feel like you are in a nature park. We had a very relaxing evening and a restful nights sleep. A little off the beaten path, but well worth the visit!! Thank you to both of you! We literally would have been lost and clueless without you!!

Warm Welcome

Pam’s warm welcome and peaceful property was a delight for our first night ever of RV travel and Boondockers Welcome. We loved the roomy site with sights and sounds of nature all around.
Thank you, Pam. We would surely stay again if we pass this way.


October 2020

Lovely stay

Wonderful little property and host :) Worked great for an overnight stay as we traveled through the area. Neighbors had some goats, chickens & roosters that you could see and hear, which was fun! We even had a couple deer walk by right in front of our window. Overall enjoyed our stay and would stay again!

Pretty Property

A somewhat peaceful stay tucked back into the wooded banks of the Kickapoo. Although quiet at night and in the morning, the roar of dirt bikes, in the evening, on the neighboring property can become a nuisance if that kind of disturbance is a bother. Though it was a challenge to find a level spot for a 37 foot motor home, we did our best for the short period we were there. After much surveying of the property while we stayed, I might suggest a much leveler grade forward of the southeast corner of the barn, along the line of trees. Though it is softer earth for a 14 ton rig, it may be well suited for lighter set-ups.
Thank you both for letting us stay on your property.


September 2020

Great experience!

Our hostess was a delight and we deeply appreciate her hospitality. Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven with us!


September 2020

Friendly welcome

We appreciated the warm and friendly welcome to Pam’s little corner of paradise. Beautiful surroundings, electric and water if needed. Would recommend to anyone for a pleasant overnight’s stay.


August 2020

Quiet and peaceful

Host was very nice and accommodating. It was hot/humid when we arrived. Really nice to be offered power so our air conditioner could run.


August 2020

Enjoyed Chatting With the Host

Definitely a little Slice of Heaven, Beautiful landscaping. Really enjoy just sitting outside with a host chatting, hopefully we'll meet again down the road


August 2020

Relax in the sounds of nature

What an enjoyable stay with a great host. Beautiful gardens, pond, waterfall and the sounds of nature. It will forever be on my favorite list for Boondocking. It was nice to meet you. Thanks so much for your covid safe hospitality


June 2020


Beautiful as always. This is definitely a little piece of heaven and the host is great. Nice safe and quiet place not far from the interstate. I could watch the fish in the pond forever. This was our second stay here and it was just as wonderful as the first.


June 2020


This is a beautiful and quiet place to stop and not to far from the Interstate and The city is just a few miles away. She was a wonderful and welcoming host with a beautiful home. This was our first time Boondocking and she definitely exceeded our expectations. We would definitely recommend stopping here.


June 2020

Gorgeous Spot!

Great little spot tucked away from the road! Beautiful gardens and friendly hosts! Would definitely stay again! Thanks for a great stay!


March 2020

Kind and considerate hospitality

Pam's place was perfect for our overnight stop. We arrived a little later than originally planned, and Pam still helped us get set up (on a Saturday night no less.) It is very quiet and very beautiful.


November 2019

Nice spot.

We’re enroute to Texas, nice spot for an overnight but would have been nice to stay longer!


October 2019

Nice stay!

We enjoyed a nice, quiet stay at Pam's Piece of Heaven. The location was perfect for touring the Peoria area and biking the Rock Island State Trail. Pam met us upon arrival even though it was raining hard. Her communication and directions were excellent. Thanks Pam for being such a great host!


September 2019

Illinois retreat

Thank you for the quiet camping spot! We took a morning walk in Dunlap. Beautiful library! We enjoyed our stay. Thank you for being a BD Host!


September 2019

It is a part of Heaven!!

What a wonderful person. Didn’t get to meet the Mr. but what a peaceful place. When you enter the grounds, stay to the right of the circle. Definitely would visit again.


August 2019

Piece of Heaven is right.

Our host was gracious and generous and really friendly. The site was beautiful and tranquil. Highly recommended! P&J


July 2019

A definite slice of Heaven!

PndldyPam's place was amazing, so tranquil. We had access to water and electricity and a very private spot with picnic table.
Pam was so accommodating, and down to earth, her property was beautiful. We will definitely return if we find ourselves in Dunlap again!


July 2019

Heavenly indeed

This piece of property is amazing! And so is the host. She was so kind and accommodating. Wish we could have spent more time visiting and enjoying the property. Great location.


July 2019

Quiet and pretty

Host was very welcoming and helpful. After we were setup, we were able to do as we pleased. Made use of the 50 amp power with a 30 amp adapter that I carry. Large van type units may have to block up to be level. Site is in the woods well away from traffic noise. Great host.


June 2019

Pndldy Pam's Paradise!

Truly a little oasis!! PondLady Pam is a superhost! Made sure we had water and power and a level spot...ohhh the fireflies!!! So tranquil!!


June 2019

Perfect and peaceful

Pam's spot was my first experience with the boondockers site, and it was so amazing. Her property is covered in flowers and little tables and spots to relax. I spent two days unwinding after a chaotic week of city travel, and it was such a lovely place to do so.... dragonflies floating around a beautiful green area, and I received such a warm welcome and send off from Pam and her husband. Much gratitude!

Nice quiet place

Pam has a very nice place in the country, very quiet. It's a beautiful location, lots of flowers and plants, plenty of level room to park. We had a very nice visit with her, talking about travels and work and retirement. Great place, glad we found it, highly recommend.


June 2018

Best Place in Il.

This was one of the most beautiful sites we have ever visited! The hosts were great, friendly, and accommodating. There are some wonderful sitting areas, lots of bunnies, and quiet. We talk about returning to Ill. just to visit again.


June 2018

Very accommodating!

We stayed with these hosts one night, with our Chrysler minivan camper and TailVeil rear tent, and had a wonderful experience! It is a quiet, shady location far enough off the highway that we hardly heard any traffic. We would use this location again if our travels bring us this direction.


June 2018

Great stay

This location was great. Just a few minutes from the highway but nestled back in the trees so it was quiet and restful. Enjoyed watching the fireflies. The host was wonderful and very welcoming. Beautiful garden landscaping!


June 2018


What wonderful people and such a beautiful spot. Wish we had more time to spend with them. We WILL be back and hope they will come to Kalamazoo so we can host them and continue getting to know them.


June 2018

Wonderful Location

I travel as a solo so I was concerned with how I would spot Pam's location - No concern, she was waiting at the end of her driveway with a welcoming smile. She led me down a quiet road to a lovely, quiet property. It was truly a "Piece of Heaven" with a nice level location easy to back into. We had a lovely visit and I am looking forward to a return visit.


June 2018

So happy to be back....

We loved our stay so much the first time, we couldn't wait to get back! Pam's place really is a piece of heaven - and we were so happy to see them again!!


May 2018

Beautiful and peaceful.

The hosts were fantastic. The site is very beautiful and peaceful with outside seating and lots of bunnies. I would travel back to Ill just to visit again! Thanks for a great place to recoup before hitting the road again.


May 2018

Peaceful Place

Our first stay and it was great! Our hostess was so nice and the property was beautiful.


April 2018

Wooded Paradise

Pam has a level parking spot within her wooded central IL paradise. It is close to a big city and a State Park. Pam was very prompt with all communication. Highly recommended.
