A very welcoming and accomodating host!

We stayed 2 days at Kent's place, and it was perfect for us. He was there when we arrived, showed us where to park, and even gave a tour of his amazing workshops. We enjoyed meeting him, and would definitely stay there again the next time we're in Corvallis. Thanks Kent!

He is such an interesting person - we loved our experience.

Kent welcomed us, and gave us a tour of his workshop. He is a fascinating person- so involved in interesting restoration projects, and building gadgets - he welcomed us and showed us what he was working on. Thank you Kent for your welcome and tour!

September 13th, great boondocker experience

We just loved Ken and his hobbies and stories. We would definitely stay there again. Corvallis is a great spot to anchor to check out all the sites. It was a very quiet neighborhood and away from the street. Although we just stayed one night, we would stay again to say hello.Thank you Ken, for a great experience.

Great host!

Had a great visit in Corvallis thanks to kenbo. He was hospitable, flexible, low key, and fun to talk to. Plus, if you have any interest at all in machine or electric engineering or toys, or even sewing, you'll fall in love with his shop. kenbo is a man of many talents and interests, you'll definitely enjoy visiting with him.

Wow, what an amazing spot!

I can't recommend this kind host enough! And what an incredible location. If I were to settle down, I'd consider Corvallis. They have a lovely town, with all sorts of family activities to entertain everyone. We especially enjoyed all the U-pick opportunities. Thank you so much for the generous hospitality! We are grateful!

Friendly Hospitality

Found Kenbo on the Boondockers website. He is friendly, easy to work with, and responsive to communication. The area for RVs is about 50 yards back from a street, far from any residences and pleasantly quiet. Electricity was available from a close by shop building. Consider staying with Kenbo if you are looking for a place to park in the Corvallis area.
