Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We love to camp and also love our toys - Motorcycles, UTV and Pontoon boat. We've been RVing for many years and currently own a diesel pusher. We love to camp locally or travel around the beautiful US. We own a business, so we work hard and love our free time. It was a joke at first when our cousin wanted to camp at our house before any of the campgrounds were open in the Spring. We installed 30 amp service and have a sewer dump out, so we started calling it Honest Dave's Campground. We have a beautiful site in the woods, but not far from the highway and town. We also have another site available on Lake Wausau that we lovingly call our Honest Dave's North Campground and Marina. It's a beautiful little spot right on the lake in the middle of town. We like to refer to it as Urban Glamping.

First-timers

This was our first boondocker stay through the site. Honest Dave and his wife are great hosts. Very accomodating and great to talk with. Thier location is set up for rigs big and small. It is very peaceful with alot of trees and is a good distance from the street. There are plenty of things to see and do in the area. Thank you for the wonderful experience!

Amazing hosts!

Warmth, witty humor, and great conversation were found here. High quality location - very safe neighborhood that is near all amenities, and within a few hours’ drive of backwoods nature activities and major cities both. Be sure to download offline maps, since service is extremely spotty in this region. This family was so much fun to stay with, and I really enjoyed getting to know the whole gang. I hope our paths cross again soon!

Quiet, comfy, and safe.

We had a great stay at Honest Dave's. They made us feel so welcomed, and were concerned for any need we might have. Really enjoyed visiting with them and making connections about friends and family in the area.

Best kept secret 1.5 miles off WI 29!

This was such a great stay. It was so easy to find, make a wide turn entering the long paved driveway, with plenty of room to disconnect and turn around. Our hosts met us and directed us to the hard packed site with plenty of privacy next to the mammoth garage. Water and 30 amp hookups are available and offered, however we did not need them. Our little four legged kids enjoyed the spacious yard. Our hosts were so friendly and welcoming, I can't believe how little traffic they have gotten given how boondocker friendly they are. We have a 40' Class A Motorhome and had no problem. The site can easily accommodate a larger rig. Honest Dave leaves his phone behind sometimes, but he will get back to you, so give him some notice if you can.

Amazing time and a wonderful place to visit.

We had such a wonderful time at Honest Dave’s. Honestly! Aside from the fact that the parking spot, water and power were all super easy to reach, our hosts made it feel more like we were visiting with family than staying with strangers. Thanks, gang. Can’t wait to see you all again soon!
