Best so Far

This has been out favorite spot so far, out of 10 stays completed. Right next to the water fall! You can't beat waking up to your own private waterfall. The host truly just wants to share his little slice of heaven! He came down and sat by the fire, swapped stories, and was so much fun to talk to. Thanks for making it a special memory for the kids, they won't forget this spot anytime soon! @homeadrift

An AMAZING location

When I signed up with Boondockers Welcome, I never imagined I would be able to stay at such incredible locations. Each one has been uniquely different from the last and the Redden's Falls location was astounding. My host greeted me and I followed him to the entrance of his boondocking parking area which was essentially in a forest. He helped me back my rig right up to the edge of a stream just below a small waterfall. I was in HEAVEN! He had fabricated a fire pit, provided a mountain of wood and even built a structure with a REAL flushing toilet! The sounds of the stream were very soothing and the next day, he arranged for his friend to take me Salmon fishing since they were spawning. As a back-country pilot who spends entire summers in wilderness areas fishing daily for my meals, I was ecstatic! He set me up with men's waders that were five sizes too big and men's 8.5 size boots which were double the size of my foot. I looked a bit clumsy....but I was ready to go fishin! I followed his friend to their secret fishing hole and we had a blast. Caught some salmon and laughed all day! After fishing, my host invited me into his home when his lovely wife just happened to be making dinner and she served all of us biscuits with sausage and gravy. Not being a big cook, I LOVE home-cooked meals. Later that night, he came down to the camp spot and joined me and a boondocker family (known online as "homeadrift" and we enjoyed a campfire and marshmallows. Gotta say, that was a memorable experience I will never forget!

Lots to See

Great stay with wonderful hosts. Visited several times with the host but his wife was not feeling well. He has a great set up below his home but we chose the upper area for electric. Our rig is really low and weren't sure if we'd drag down by the falls. If not raining and I had not been a bit under the weather would have enjoyed sitting at the campfire with other BW folks.
We enjoyed the area so much. .

A really great place the water falls are just magic. Gypsy (cat) gives it 4 Paw's up.only had a short time to spend with the host as he was away most of our stay
Really nice and had a lot of advice about The area

Best sleep in weeks!

Wonderful hosts and awesome location! We loved falling asleep listening to the falls. Nice, quiet and secluded area was a joy to stay at. Great location quick to highway. Our host was most helpful and made us feel welcome from the start. Enjoyed a campfire with him and some s’mores. He gave us great ideas of what to visit while we were there, though we really didn’t even need to leave the property it was so lovely!
Loved it here!

Great place to stay with wonderful people. Hosts were very gracious. The area down by the stream and waterfall was so peaceful and serene. It was hard to believe you were only a short distance from the Interstate.

The best hide away

Mr. Redden is very gracious and helpful. Our spot was down by the Creek by a step waterfall. Fun to walk around the Creek. Shady and out of the sun. We will be back soon. Thank you.


August 2019


I had a very nice visit at the Redden's Falls at Jackson Creek.
It is very beautiful, but private & quiet location.
I enjoyed several conversations w the Host & a few of his friends!
Yes, I would enjoy staying there again!
Thank you,

Great place to stay!

The owner is very accommodating and gracious. He is a fellow RVer and checked on us a couple of times after we got settled, but other than that, he left us to do our thing. He has a couple of options for spots to stay actually. The spot by the waterfall, at the time of this anyway, does not have electricity. It is very wooded and a nice little spot but it is down a bit of a dirt road hill to get to it and it made me a little nervous to drive down in our 32' Class C. However, he does have a spot beside his house that was perfect, level, and even reachable for water with a long hose to fill up and he may even have electricity (30amp) available for you. We did compensate him for electricity usage during our short stay and really appreciated the connection. Nice property and area. Would love to stop by again some time.

Thanks for the stay!

Great Hosts

Cannot say enough good things about our hosts. They treated us like family.. They gave us information on places to go, took care of our two dogs and even invited us to a Wiener roast .. Great Boondockers stop. They let us stay in the yard since we had some electrical problem’s with our coach.. We wanted to stay by the waterfall, but it didn’t work out for us.. But did go to the falls. Very beautiful!! Thank you both for all your hospitality.. See you in Florida in the fall..

Pulled in late in the day and was greeted by a most welcoming host who took the time to show me the camping spot and guided me all the way. I set up camp on a peninsula overlooking a waterfall. The next morning the host came to see if all was ok and we chatted for a while. This was my first time staying with a "boondockerswelcome" host and I could not have been any happier. What can I say. . . the experience was delightful.

Beatiful seclude spot

Good simple directions made the stop easy. Jr met us and was very helpful and accommodating. We got water at the house and Jr took us down and showed us the big grassy area down by the creek where we discussed all the options on where we could set up. It’s a beautiful secluded spot that’s very peaceful and our rescue beagle loved playing in the water. Parking right next to the creek was just wonderful. There’s also a screened gazebo overlooking the creek that we used one evening. We had a nice conversation with Jr and Lr the morning before we left and are looking forward to them stopping at our spot the next time they decide to head south.

Awesome stay😎

What a great place! Host has to be one of the nicest people I have ever met. Will be friends forever! Provided us with every service needed and even loaned us his car. Wow. This stop deserves a 10! Oh yeah, awesome Creek and waterfalls

Great first boondocker experience

Great location and host! Couldn't have been a better intro for us to Boondockers Welcome!


July 2019

Beautiful location, great RVer hosts.

The title says it all. Words can hardly describe the beauty and solitude of camping in your private park, creek and waterfall included. Communication with the hosts was excellent as we made arrangements for arrival. jr met us and showed us the way to the falls, down a steep windy tree-lined lane. He helped us park and met us again in the morning to help with other matters. Did not get a chance to meet lr as they were off on adventures of their own. Highly recommend "Redden's Falls at Jackson Hole" and hope the hosts might one day visit us in Kansas.

It’s like having your own personal camping spot. Super amicable hosts. If you are in that area, do not hesitate to request your stay.

Great Hosts!

We had two very peaceful nights at Redden Falls. This location is one of the best that we have experienced so far using BW. Jack recommended several places to visit. We thoroughly enjoyed touring Boldt Castle and Sackets Harbor Battlefield. Fun times sharing stories over pie with hosts. We will be back again, God Willing.

Super friendly hosts!

We had the pleasure to stay on night at Redden's Falls. Because of the rain we stayed near their house. It was a nice level grassy spot. They have a 40amp outlet if needed. We were received with a very nice welcome. We did not get to stay at the falls but got a guided tour in the morning. Wow! it's like being in your own secluded private campground. If your in the area, it's worth stopping by. You will not regret it.

A hidden treasure

I’m not sure you can ask for much more than what we got here. We were nestled in the middle of the woods, with a big bling brook all around us. An open spot for our solar panels to do their job, and as much peace and tranquility as anyone could ask for. This is a true boondocking location, where you’re off the grid. We loved every minute of it. Our hosts were very gracious and helpful.

Great communication

We had planned a stay, but unfortunately had to change plans at the last minute. Communication was great and quick through the whole process, we look forward to crossing paths at some point soon.
