OurPlace's Pets

None now, but have had many in the past and love well-behaved quiet ones.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Any where with decent weather, nice people, and a fairly level campsite. We prefer mountain, desert, or rural settings.We have four-wheel drive but would prefer not to have to use it to get there!

Return Visits Are Even Better Than The First One!

We were very happy to host these Boondockers Welcome guests again on their return trip toward home. Even this visit was too short so we will just have to repeat it again (and again!). We look forward to being together in Missouri in the future. We wish them Godspeed and safe travels. To the grandson - Hold fast your dreams but keep a balance in your life so you can go far. We'll be thinking of you all and look forward to meeting the rest of the family next time. Perry, Ginny & Georgia

New Friends That Felt Like Old Ones!

What a wonderful experience to host this family of three at Candy Cane Corral! We enjoyed getting acquainted with them and sharing experiences. We were especially impressed with the grandson (who wants to be a rocket scientist) with his politeness and good manners and respect for his grandparents. What a rarity in this day and age!! We look forward to their return visit next weekend so we can continue our visiting. Perry, Ginny & Georgia.

We can't have better hosts

How lucky we are to meet them, they are so precious!
They are of endless generosity and kindness, they are such sweet persons. It was a too short stay, but wonderfully enjoyable.
We will definitely be back soon.

Excellent Hosts

My husband and I were traveling through Missouri to see my brother and sister in law on our way back to Florida. This location was perfect for us and these hosts were beyond welcoming! They are a wonderful couple and they have a most amazing property. There was plenty of room for our 32 ft fifth-wheel and they were gracious enough to offer us electric hookup and water for our tank. Unfortunately the weather was not so good, and we were doing a little administrative catch up, so we didn't get to spend as much time with them as we would have liked. We will DEFINITELY be staying with them again whenever we are in the area. They are wonderful, hospitable hosts! Loved this Boondocker's Welcome location!!!

All I can say is positive things.

This is the best place we've ever stayed at on Boondockers.

What a wonderful couple :)

Thank you very much for letting us stay..... it was a really fun and interesting stay. This is exactly what we love about Boondockers Welcome and what we are truly going to miss when we go back to Australia - making friends that we feel we have known for years !!. We are hoping to start there as hosts and can only dream that we will be anywhere near as good as you guys are in hosting :)

Great host and location!

Peaceful quiet and beautiful location with genuinely welcoming hosts! Our host sent very detailed directions with our rig size in mind which is a big plus, then met us out front to offer parking options. They gave us space since I was stuck inside working my day job till 5pm, and were very friendly when we were outside. Great conversations about hosting, traveling, and flying. We will definitely look them up next time we’re in the area.
Thanks for your hospitality!

As always, a great place to stay the night.

As always, great people, great place.

One of these days I'm going to stay there when it's not raining. Beautiful place and nice wide driveway.

Great overnight experience!

We had a very pleasant stay. Host greeted us on our arrival and helped guide us on where to park. Dick was very welcoming and helpful. He made sure we had good directions coming to his well maintained property. We took a stroll around the neighborhood and left around 10am. We we're especially thankful to have safe shelter for our family if needed! Thank you for a great stay!

Wonderful Place, Winderful People

Very positive experience and we felt safe from the storms that were in the area by providing shelter.

So peaceful

Dick and karen greeted me and my furbabies and hooked me up to elec and let me use their scaffolding to clean the top outside of my camper. Karen was doing theirs when I got there. Their place was absolutely beautiful. Took nice walks and relaxed. Really nice people 😁
