We live in rural La Crosse, WI on 20 acres. It’s a beautiful area but love to see other wonderful parts of the country too. We have 4 children - all young adults out of college. Two are married and we are patiently waiting for grandkids.
New to Boondocking.

If I didn't get the message I would have never know they were here.
Great to host such nice people.
Love the spirit of this couple! Complimentary to our little slice of heaven in Oklahoma, they are welcome anytime!
They were courteous and kept us informed of their arrival time. I didn’t get to meet them personally but Dan has a great radar for wonderful and he speaks highly of these travelers!
What great people! Lots of fun, and great to get to know! Would host them again!
They started a new era of life, called retirement. They covered our area, leaving no stone unturned. We had some interesting conversations, as they have lived in many parts of our great country. Dave was very helpful in getting electric power back to my building's lighting.
We welcome them back!
Only got to chat briefly with Dave & Jerri upon there arrival. They seem like very nice people!
Wish we would have had more time. Great folks, pleasant conversation. Disappointed we didn`t have more time to spend with them. Be safe in your travels and hope you guys enjoy retirement!

What a great place for winding down and chillin out. We very much enjoyed our stay and even extended a day. The host was very accommodating.
We miss Wisconsin and was so happy we got to experience it again after a 17 year absence. One thing that hasn’t change is the generosity of the people.
What made it nice is that our new dog Barkansas got to experience cows for the first time. Being bred to herd cows was a new experience for him. He had to be restrained to curb his enthusiasm! Lol.
Make this your stop if you want to experience country living.
We enjoyed our stay, hosts were great! Would go back and hope we see them on the road.
Perfect location to be in a rain storm. Sad we missed visiting your area but we will be back. Thanks for the hospitality and enjoyed the conversation.
Phenomenal pull up, we came through a little late but had great communication with our host. Dave and jerri greated us upon arrival with huge smiles and gave us our privacy to roam a beautiful plot with gorgeous views, hikes, a cute little garden, livestock, and bonus it was super peaceful and quiet. For our first stay with boonedocker welcome they managed to set the bar high for future hosts!
Very accommodating hosts and we were very appreciative of all of the insights they gave us “noobs”. Thank you very much!
Had a very nice stay at Back Acres. Our host was very friendly and even had a welcome packet of things to do in the area. We went into LaCrosse and had a great day. We got some great tips for our continued travels out West. Thank you!
Host was very accommodating, it was just a short overnight stay for us. We were able to plug into 15amp next to their garage. Comfortable place and very quiet at night. Best part was the fireflies at night in the grass wooded area right behind us! Thank you
We loved our stay at BackAcres! Jerrilynn greeted us upon arrival and offered electrical set up and a nice level place to park. Their home and property are absolutely beautiful! We settled in and after dinner were offered drinks and an opportunity to sit and visit with them. The next morning we enjoyed coffee and conversation while listening to the birds. We felt welcomed and enjoyed our stay. Our best BDW experience so far!
The hosts went above and beyond to make me feel welcomed. Great directions, use of a 15amp plug and a fun hike in the morning. If you are looking for a quiet night and wonderful hosts look no further!
Many thanks to Dave and Jerri for the opportunity to stay at their beautiful home. TheIr land is spectacular and the fall colors made it particularly awesome. Dave helped us find a perfect spot for our motorhome and was so genuinely accommodating. The next morning we took a short walk and were greeted by friendly, curious cows. So fun! Can’t say enough about this gracious couple!
Maybe this should be called 'A Little Bit of Heaven', because that's what it felt like!! This is our new favorite Boondockers location! Jerri greeted us when we arrived. Once we were set up, she brought out her 'information sheet' which covered everything from address/phone for emergencies, counties for weather radio, policies, things to do in and around the area, places to wine and dine, etc. We visited for a bit, and went about our own thing. She greeted us the following morning with more information and asked if we had any questions. Upon our mid-day return, we visited and shared wine with both Jerri & Dave. Our last morning there, we again visited with both and hated to leave - we felt like we had made such great new friends!! While all the views from this location were beautiful, the view from the top of the hill is spectacular!! We hope to come back and stay here again in the future.
Jerri was a wonderful host. She met us in the driveway and guided us in. She offered up her beautiful patio near the garden for us to enjoy the views. Unfortunately the weather was cold and rainy, but we were still able to take in the landscape. We wish we had planned to stay longer than one night to really enjoy all that the area had to offer.
We enjoyed our time at BackAcres with the quiet and peaceful grounds. Even the courteous cow didn’t make a sound. A great place in the rolling green hills.
Doc and I had a wonderful time on there property. They were very helpful and kind. They gave me some ideas of things to do which turned out to be a lot of fun. Doc and I appreciated them letting us stay on their property.
We so enjoyed are two quite nights at there place! Beautiful property and area! Hosts were super nice, friendly and welcoming! Thank you!
David and Jerri were incredibly nice and accommodating. We arrived later than anticipated, and they actually waited up for us to make sure that we could get parked without issues. And then, they offered us coffee in the morning! Highly recommend a night or two here.
I am not sure that I could ever leave a review good enough for this host. The property was stunning and they set us up with a nice private spot overlooking some unexpectedly beautiful mountains. We were having issues with our solar upon arrival and our system was tripping the lower voltage line so the host wired up a 30 amp hookup on the spot for us! They gave us fantastic recommendations on hikes in the area and a local vineyard. All in all they made us feel more than comfortable and invited us out for a fire on our final evening to share stories. Definitely a slice of paradise they have there. We hope to cross paths with them again someday. 11/10.
We stayed at their ranch for two days while we had business in La Crosse. Their setting is absolutely beautiful with a long view across their pasture to the valley beyond. Dave and Jerri were very accommodating hosts: Dave moved his tractor so we could pull up parallel to the machine shed and enjoy the view across the valley. They also loaned us their fire ring, which we rolled across to our camper and enjoyed a fire each night. Dave and Jerri joined us the first evening where we enjoyed getting to know each other. Their son even shared some of his recently picked morel mushrooms - what a treat!
Wonderful experience after we got there. Hosts were so friendly and helpful. Wish they were our neighbors. Would recommend this stop for anyone.
This site was in the country, quiet and overlooking the beauty of the surrounding valleys. Our hosts greeted us, showed us where to park, helped us hook up our electric and then let us get set up. They invited us to their deck for a visit and drinks. They shared some of the local parks and places to see. We had a nice visit getting to know each other. We stayed two nights and we could see the trees change color on the hills. There's lots of beauty to see from the cliffs above the Mississippi. Good ice cream shop (The Pearl) in Lacrosse!! Don't miss it! When passing through the area, we will be sure to make time to stay at this site again.
We had a great stay! The kids loved playing with the dog, seeing the cows, and chatting up our hosts. :) It's a beautiful spot!
Dave & Jerri are excellent hosts. I wish I could have stayed longer. Their house and yard is peaceful & beautiful and they are just simply the nicest people. I enjoyed my stay with them very much.
The surrounding area of this location is so beautiful and atop the hill of this spot is breathtaking!! Perfect end to our overnight date! Thank you so much!
