I am a retired Chevrolet Dealer and my wife Sally is a retired educator. We enjoy Road Trek'ing the entire country visiting family, friends and former shipmates. Our Black River Falls home is actually located about 1 mile out of town on highways 12 & 27 north. We have 31/2 acres of heavy forest which comes with lots of privacy and tranquility and an occasional deer walk through. It great for sitting around the fire-ring anytime of day.
As a former auto dealer I have some knowledge of mechanic's but make no promises. I enjoy woodworking thus have numerous power tools. Sally is an enthusiastic "quilter", just give her a sewing machine and she is very happy.
We did at one time but none now. We do have a very nice outdoor kennel available for use by anyone.
We have enjoyed camping the entire northern section of the United States as well as southern Canada.
Black River Falls, Wisconsin is located just off I-94 mile markers 115 and 116. Our population is about 5500 if you include the Town of Brockway, just across the river. Located just 3-4 miles east of town is the Ho-Chunk Casino on highway 54 east. Skyline Golf course (18 hole) is right adjacent to town and has a very nice and modern club house with bar, restaurant, and pro shop. BRF also has a very nice lighted runway airport about 2 miles south of town on hwy. 27. The Lunda Cummunity Center offers an indoor swimming pool, water park, physical fitness room, indoor walking track, Senior Center and much more. The community also has numerous churches represented. The Black River runs through Black River Falls and if you enjoy water skiing it is one of Wisconsin's best kept secrets. We do have multiple grocery stores including a Walmart, and a full service hospital, Black River Memorial Hospital. For the gun enthusiast. we have Moe Hardware, Moe's carries one of the largest inventory of firearms in the state of Wisconsin. Oh yes, Jackson county is considered the Deer Hunting Capital of Wisconsin (but NOT in town). Wazee Lake offers much for the scuba diver. Scuba rental equipment and training is always available at the Wazee Sports Center.

Didn’t get a chance to do much visiting, but managed some morning coffee on the deck. Very quiet campers. Looking forward to their next visit so we can get better acquainted.
This couple came late, left early and were absolutely self-sufficient. We look forward to hosting them again, perhaps with more time to exchange experiences.
Very nice couple. Would love to host them again. * safe travels *
Kind couple. Independent and self-sufficient! Thank you for choosing us for your stay!
We were not home at the time of their stay & everything was in perfect shape when we returned.
Another great experience. We enjoyed sharing life stories. It was a bit chilly, so we didn’t get to share any porch time, but there’s always next time. They do get the early riser award. They were out of here before 7:00! They are welcome back anytime.
Loved having them as our first ever Boondockers! They were very kind and friendly, we enjoyed their visit. Mrs. Sally even spoiled us with some of the best homemade cookies!
These folks stayed at our place while we were also traveling. They left everything as they found it and we were happy to be their host. We hope to meet them sometime when we are at home or in our travels.
They were very accommodating and nice to chat with. Beautiful property with tons of trees and feels very tranquil. We would for sure stay here again and thank you guys for your generosity!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Woodsy Retreat. Parking was easy and the spot was nice and shady among the beautiful trees! Hosts were welcoming and we appreciate their generousity!
This was a extremely pleasant stay, very peaceful, quiet wonderful place. Mr.Bob and Sally ensured we were settled, had wonderful campfire that we sat around and had good conversation, but also let us have privacy. I must say I enjoyed the two days we spent there and it was the much need rest that we needed to continue on with our journey. I hope to run across them in the future, wonderful people, stop there if in the area you will not regret this stay.
Wonderful hosts. Property is beautiful and easily accessible. Great time around the campfire. Highly recommend.
Sally and Bob were both just wonderful and helpful. They invited us to join them around a campfire with their family until the mosquitoes drove us into the house where we played cards. We enjoyed their company so much that we've invited them to stay at our home on their next trip east. We're sure that we will be seeing them again
