Fantastic

This is an excellent place to stay.

Parking is ample and level and Verizon service is strong.

The hosts are a terrific family with a great story. The massive home they have been restoring is a testament to their skill and perseverance. A terrific project, a fabulous home.

The hosts were also super friendly and very helpful and we wish them all the best on their plans for the future.

Highly recommended.

Peaceful and Quiet

We had a delightful stay at the Hinkley School. Our host was very gracious providing us with a quiet and safe stay in the midst of a strong wind warning. It was so nice to be greeted and welcomed by our host who assisted in getting us set up. Many thanks for a wonderful stay.

A pleasant host and a nice place to stay, with great flexibility. In fact, it was the funnest BW stay that I have had, due to the host’s unique home.

Great stay at Old School Hinkley.

Arranged a one night's stay but it was so pleasant and quiet we stayed an extra night. Had a great dinner with the hosts our second night. Tour of the school house, electric and water made our stay that much better. Thanks Old School!

Wow!

What an amazing location and host. This town, Hinckley and Delta (nearby), are the friendliest ppl I’ve ever met. Host was so helpful and left no item unattended to.

Property was clean, grass was green and we can’t say enough good about our host and location.

There is a reason why these folks have so many positive reviews: because they deserve them!

Mr Hospitality! Great Experience!

Kevin and family were awesome! They gave us a tour, our kids played and the site was quiet, quaint and beautifully set! Would totally go back again and stay longer and invited them to join us at our place if they are in the Seattle area!

Quiet and peaceful place

Doc and I enjoyed our stay it was very quiet and peaceful. We had the opportunity to relax and enjoy our stay. His son was very nice and accommodating. The school that was turned into a house was absolutely amazing. I appreciate them letting us stay on their property.

Great stay, wonderful hosts

Wonderful hosts, very helpful and nice. We got a tour of the school, which is their home, and they’re doing a great job renovating it. There’s a park near by that my kids enjoyed. It was a great place to stay. We’re very thankful for their hospitality.

Fascinating experience!

A little bit out of way for us, but definitely worth it! The family was out of town but their son was an amazing host! Very attentive and concerned about our needs. 3 or 4 other rigs there at the same time, but we all had our own”private” space. He gave us an awesome tour of the school his family had purchased and the labor intensive work they are doing to give it life again. Has to be a labor of love! Will definitely come back in a few years to see the progress!!

The absolute best!!!

Meant to write this review earlier, better late than never. Absolutely the best experience we could have asked for. Kevin took the time to show us around his home, which is the most unique home I’ve ever seen, and I own a real estate brokerage! The whole family is awesome, and I’m thankful to have experienced this place. Look forward to seeing Kevin and his family again.

Wonderful old school setting

We had another great stay here. It was our second time. Great tree shade. 110v was not working well this time. No big deal for us.

Great location with a little bit of history

Easy access from the highway. Level parking area with plenty of room and nice shade trees. Good neighborhood for walking our dog. Generous and welcoming host. The old school house is very impressive. We enjoyed our visit and would definitely stay here again.

I very much enjoyed my stay. I didn't get to meet.his wife as she was out of town and I didn't get to spend much time with with him. It was Pioneer weekend and he was very busy. Great place and great host.

Very nice visit

We had a great time in the small town of Hinckley, UT. We had a great host and this was a nice stopping point between Great Basin NP and Zion NP. We also took in the Pioneer Days parade before we left town. Would recommend this Boondocker’s location.

The elephant

Big hearts, big family, and a big house. From start to finish, our stay at the Hinkley school was wonderful. If you like privacy you can have it. If you want company, it is there too. The school house that they are converting to their home is huge. The grounds outside are huge and far enough off the main road so every night was peaceful. Thanks again to the Caldwells.

Lovely, welcoming family

I was exhausted from too much driving, too much heat, and too much visiting with family. The family was welcoming and kind. I appreciated their invitation to eat dinner with them, and see the work they are doing on restoring the old school building they live in. I was too wiped out to be social - hope to visit them again sometime and see their progress on Old School Hinckley!

Very nice family with an ambitious project. A generous, thoughtful man of great vision. And Yes, we asked about the elephant.
The location is quiet and the area has lots of amenities. We highly recommend it.

Lovely Family

We had a wonderful time touring their schoolhouse home and watching their two year old chase ducks. Our host was kind, accommodating, and helpful. We would definitely recommend them as a friendly place along the loneliest highway!

Wish I'd asked about the elephant

Kevin was very nice. He came out to chat and to make sure we had everything we needed; he wanted us to know that he was there to help anyway he could. His son met us when we arrived and helped us hook up to their electricity. It was a quiet and pretty place to spend the night. But I did forget to ask about the elephant in the photo.

Nice Quiet Friendly Spot

This was a very special place being that the owners are renovating an old school house. Great hosts and they even gave us a tour of their home/renovation. They offered electric hookups but we declined as we really didn’t need it. They are very friendly and generous!

Staying at school

Response time through this site was great. Via email we were approved to stay even thought the host was out of town. Got to the school a bit early and no one was home as the family member that was to greet us was at school. When he got home he made sure we had what we needed. Since we all had an early day the next day, we did not see him again. It was a pleasant stay, very quiet and comfortable. We will remember this one for future reference.

Essence of Kindness

Our hosts and their loving family were as good hearted as they could be.
Easy access tonThe Loneliest Hwy.
They offered 20 amp and we gladly accepted as it was hot.
We were invited to dinner a couple of times and thoroughly enjoyed our conversations and the tour of their home.
Thank you so very much for your hospitality!

Jackpot

I feel as if I won the lottery! This was my very first boondocking experience. They all were so kind and compassionate. I arrived as the sun set and they helped me hook up to electricity in almost dark. The teen children did the job for me. The next day they troubleshooted and were very solicitous of my needs. I got a tour of their massive renovation and had plans to stay a few extra days to help them out. I would recommend doing that if you can! These people are the salt of the earth. SO very worth the 'out-of-the-way' trip. I will use BoondockersWelcome.com again.

Jackpot

I feel as if I won the lottery! This was my very first experience and it did not disappoint! They were so compassionate and sensitive to my needs. This is only my 3rd time towing my RV, quite a novice. They helped me hook up. They troubleshooted. They gave me a tour of their massive renovation, making me want to stay longer to help them out. That is something I will do the next time I return. And, believe me, there WILL be a next time! I will plan it into my trip. Their children are not a whit behind them. The fruit does not fall far from the tree.
With Kind Thoughts, Carmen San Diego!

A Special Place

My husband and I spent a night at the Caldwells' home a week ago, and were warmly welcomed by Kevin and his family. He has done an enormous amount of work transforming this unused school into a home, and possibly in the future, a Bed and Breakfast. We got the tour and marveled at how the large spaces they use for their family still manage to feel cozy. It was a quiet, peaceful night, and we completely enjoyed our stay there. Good luck with your project, Kevin!


LuckyLinda

Wonderful people, wonderful place.

They were so welcoming and very gracious hosts. The site was perfect, they hooked up power for me and refused to take any money. They went out of their way to include me in the local events and even took me to a rodeo and invited me to stay an extra night. This was my first trip as a full timer and first time as a Boondockers Welcome, it was a great beginning for my journey.


KLuckan

Perfect night

Extraordinary nice host family. We got a shady spot, water and power plus a tour through the old schoolhouse. What a cool project they are tackling...worth the stay alone. Our daughter was delighted to play with the ducks and watch the friendly dogs. If we are allowed we will be back. Wish Kevin and family all the best for their project.

Such a welcoming family ...

These are the kindest people. They made me more than welcome. Opened their home to me for showers, laundry, etc. Let me use their wi-fi, and fill up my water tank. Let me have packages delivered to their address. The schoolhouse they are renovating is amazing. Such a lot of work! I enjoyed getting to know them and their children a bit. If you get a chance to visit them, I'd highly recommend it.

All done by email

Caldwells were away for the dates we requested, but they allowed us to park on their property anyway. Directions were given and questions answered by messages via Boondockers Welcome. It worked very well. The location was very peaceful.

What a great shame we didn't get to meet our hosts.

Very nice experience. The owners son graciously showed us where we could set up. The owner gave us a tour of the family project to refurbish the historic building. Very impressive and ambitious undertaking. Thanks for a pleasant stay. Visit us in Florida on your trip next year.

Very Accommodating

We arrived mid afternoon b4 our hosts were home from work, but son Maverick came out to greet us and offer any assistance he could. We didnt need anything as we dry camped. Kevin arrived home later and was very gracious and gave us and the other BDW couple the grand tour of their restoration project so far 8 years in the making. What a wonderful man (and children) Unfirtunately did not meet the Mrs as she was working. Smooth level parking area on the south side of the gymnasium and 15 amp power is available if needed

Welcoming!

Our brief stay was met with very welcoming hosts. We were offered everything you could possibly need. This Old School turned home is amazing! It was great to be given a tour of their home and shown how they are transforming it into a beautiful home centered around family. Come here and you will be happy you did drive the extra bit to get here. We were heading to Zion National Park and it worked perfectly. Worth it!

Going back to School

After my GPS misdirected me, Host's teen son graciously walked out to main st to direct & welcome me. Great spot - lots of space to park any size Rig. As I wanted to accept their offer of 15amp, I parked in front of the old Gym building and they brought out a long extension cord. They're across the street from a large Church so very quiet & peaceful place for the night.
Host welcomed me after returning from work and offered me a tour off their "Project". Amazing vision, labor of love, and will be a Great home & BnB once completed! Another great BW experience!

Wonderful site and people!

The Caldwells were fantastic, friendly and welcoming. The town is nice and the site was quiet and spacious. They hooked us up to their power. Thanks SO much!
Also, this was our first Boondockers Welcome.

quiet and peaceful place, nice host

It was our first boondock experience and it was totally awesome. We came there later than expected, but the really nice host was more than friendly waiting for us. In the morning he showed us his house, a former school, which was really impressive. We definitely could recommend a stay here!
