Currently one tick hound named Ruby. She's getting older. More died and my mother in 2017 so rough last year. Dogs always welcome. Would love the right new pup, English mastiff, viszla, tick hound. Dogs always welcome my place.
I like ghost towns. Bannack Montana is one of my favs
Currently Arco Idaho. Born Couerdalene Idaho. Raised near McCammon.
We stayed for two nights while passing through Arco to visit Craters of the Moon (about 18 miles away). Scar wasn’t in town but still very responsive and said it was no problem to come anyway and make ourselves at home. It really feels like a laid back “campground” of sorts - i.e. there is a sign at the entrance with a map of where to find things. A couple others also came and went while we were there. There was plenty of room for our 36’ class A + tow car to maneuver. We setup near the 50a electricity near the flag so we didn’t have to run the generator to keep our batteries charged, but used it sparingly as to not take advantage of our hosts generosity. On our last day, Scar returned with his dog Ruby and we were able to meet and chat for a bit before we had to leave. Scar is a great host, friendly and willing to do whatever he can to make your stay better! We would definitely stay here again if passing through Arco. Thanks Scar!
Scar and his dog is a good combination.
Honeys Park is a great place with a great view.
Our recent trip through the area to visit craters of the moon, etc was wonderful.
We didnt plan to be there on the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing, so the Lava Rocks campground was full. Honeys park had plenty of room, and was able to accommodate a last minute request.
This was a very basic and open field campsite—but having electric was a plus. Our host was a very interesting person. He is very open about his past and some of the physical and emotional challenges he has been through. But despite it all he is determined to support others. He uses his site to support those in need and continues to expand what he can provide for others. So if you find yourself in his next of the woods (CLOSE to Crater of the Moon National Monument) please consider camping there and support his efforts.
Sorry this took so long, but I though I has already sent a reference earlie!
As described on his website, the area is dusty, and the host is sarcastic. That being said, one of our favorite places to stay, so far. Anybody that loves dogs, is good with us, and Scar is one of those people. He's very generous and humble. There are power hook ups if needed, and more than enough space for anybody stopping by with any size rig. We sat at talked with Scar and 2 other families while all of our kids played in the Skoolie (set up for tent campers that don't want to deal with the tent). Be sure to read the full website (honk appropriately when entering) and do not leave food around your camper or give food to Ruby (resident dog) - she has severe food allergies. If we come through the area again, we'll definitely be staying at Honey's again!
*Side note: Honey's is about 20 minutes to Craters of the Moon.
This is a great place to see a few sights, then have a relaxing time and great company. Wide open spaces with electricity if needed. There is free city water and a free dump at Jack's Travel Plaza close by. The host, Scar, is a great guy, expect good conversation, and a beer or whatever by a fire. This is also a great place for kids and dogs, and wayward spirits. We loved our time at Honey's and plan to be back... Scar and his dog Ruby are great hosts!
Low key place central to Craters of the Moon and EBR-1. We had a great time and met some folks from the Netherlands traveling the US in a Styer, some folks from Michigan and a woman from Australia who'd biked from San Fransisco!
Great place to stay after visiting Craters of the Moon National Park.
It was great meeting Scar and Ruby. Nice place to hang out and relax, with great conversation. Very generous host. Looking forward to a return visit.
We so enjoyed our overnight with Scar! We Will be back, when we can spend a bit longer...he is The King of the fireside chat!!!
Quiet and peaceful. Great stop overnight. Easy to access, host is friendly and welcoming. Plenty of wide open space. Would stay again if in the area.
Honey's Park is a great place to spend a day or two and connect with other like-minded individuals. We met another full-time family and were able to connect with them and stay in touch afterward. The place was nice and quiet and full of heart :) Thank you, Honey's Park for all you do! We really enjoyed our stay and are grateful for your kindness and hospitality.
Scar is a great guy,offers free dry camping to any one that comes by.
We had great talks ,shared dinner and enjoyed the company.
More people like him will make the world better.
Thank you Scar.
Honey's place is just as he described, read his website and you will know what to expect. He offers power and good conversation. Close to Craters of the Moon and EBR1. Super nice guy offering up a spot to hangout.
Scar and his dog Ruby could not be better hosts! Highly, highly recommend staying with Scar.
If you want the details, check his website at http://honeyspark.webs.com. He is a super nice guy with a big heart and a very gracious host. I love places with a short list of rules and he has one, "Don't be a jerk.", that says it all in my book. I would definite recommend Honey's Park.
Scar is a easy going host with a laid back property. We slept great and felt safe. Easy access. Great beer selection !
Exactly as described....What more do you need? We will come back if in Arco.
Honey's is tucked right between the KOA campground and the LDS church, so it's real easy to find. Lots of room, a few power outlets (30 and 50 amp), and free beer! The owner has made a nice place to spend a few days. Arco is a small town, so it's an easy walk or bike ride to the parks, restaurants, and stores. It's also just a few miles from Craters of the Moon, so it makes a good home base to explore the surrounding area. This site is a little unusual for Boondockers Welcome in that the owner doesn't need nor require advance notice, just show up and pick a spot. Very friendly camp, there is a BBQ and microwave for guest use, plus free coffee in the morning.
Scar was a great host. He provided us with a warm, dry campsite in miserable weather. Thanks for the hospitality!
Honeys park is a nice place to stay. And Scar was a great host. Nice quiet place with 50 amp elec that was much appreciated. Unfortunately because it was so cold outside, we were not able to spend as much time as we would have liked with our host. We intend to come back this way someday when it's warmer to visit with Scar.
