Nice guests

It was fun to host the Kenskeepers. It was nice to meet, and we had a good time visiting. They were friendly, polite and interesting to talk with. Hope to run into you again at some point.

Fantastic Couple

Ken and Cathy stayed with us on September 4th. What a quiet, knowledgeable and interesting couple they are. We took a walk around some of the town and they met some of the town-folk. After dinner, we played cards and overall we just had a great time. Please do stop in anytime you happen to be this way.

A fun evening under the stars!

We spent a delightful evening with Ken, Cathy and the neighbors last spring on our way down to New Orleans Jazz Fest. We hope to visit this spring as we once again trek southward from the melting snowbanks of Maine

Fun Couple

We enjoyed meeting Ken and Cathy. We were able to provide some timely suggestions as they are planning a trip to Alaska this summer. Great bird watching from their boondocking spot too!

Terrific stay

We stayed the evening of March 24th. This was our second visit with Kenskeeper and though this time there was snow on the ground, it was as pleasant and enjoyable as our first. We had a great conversation with our hosts that evening and had a quiet and peaceful sleep in our Roadtrek 190P. Thank you again.

Wonderful Hosts

Kenskeeper were our first Boondockerswelcome hosts. We were recieved like family and had time for a nice nightcap visit. We shared fishing stories and hope to have them on a return visit to our Ontario Canada cottage to dip a line or two. Power was provided and the beautiful property easily accommodated our 17.5' Hybrid trailer and SUV on the asphalt driveway. A great introduction to the Boondocking community.

kenskeeper a keeper

Kenskeeper have a beautiful private oasis that they happily share. The space they provide is very considerate of the campers needs, they were kind enough to provide power, and to share the backyard amenities. Great hosts!

Quiet peaceful night

We stayed in March 2016 for one night in a 19' Roadtrek. We parked on a level spot and were able to plug in. Ken and Cathy were very hospitable and friendly. We hope that we can reciprocate the visit when they get to New England. Thank you.

Fun talk!

Terrific people in a comfortable suburban neighborhood. We plugged in (much appreciated) and enjoyed a quiet night, perfect for us. Spent a few hours with them on our rig sharing wine and stories. We hope they will come and see us in Canada and look forward to seeing them again.

Wonderful place to overnight

Ken and Cathy made us feel right at home. We enjoyed interesting conversation and they even fed us dinner.

It was easy to find their place and spent a peaceful night.

First boondocking. Wonderful people and place!

Although we did not really have a chance to spend a lot of time with Ken and Cathy, we were thrilled by their welcome and availability. Ken was really helpful in showing us how to handle our camper (it was our first trip with an RV and we needed advice). He even gave us a small Bible.

The location was beautiful, the owners have a lovely garden with flowers, a fish pond and old trees. The street was really quiet and the neighbors nice. Plus all the trees were in bloom.

Harrisburg stroke us as being quiet, very clean and lovely. It is very close to Hershey, America's chocolate town.

Lovely spot, lovely people.

I had a short but comfortable stay in the driveway of Ken and Cathy's Harrisburg home. They were most welcoming and offered wine, food, and good travel advice. I highly recommend this spot and these hosts. Thank you Ken and Cathy.

hospitality plus!

I called looking for a place in or near Harrisburg and I was so excited when I got Ken's reply. Was delayed in 'football' traffic on the I-81 but got there just as it was getting dark. Met his wife Cathy who promptly invited me to join them and friends for sushi. I had already eaten but it sounded great. I declined and got myself setup for the night. Beautiful yard and surroundings, conducive to a good night's sleep. Wakened to birds singing and squirrels chirping. Cathy feeds them all so they flock to the yard. Ken and Cathy fish in Canada yearly so we were able to compare some spots...great hosts and lovely surroundings close to amenities. Stocked up and stayed an extra night...great place fo a weary traveller....
