Great location

Great Location, Great hosts. Because of COVID we were unable to associate with the hosts. We did have a brief visit at the doorway with the hosts who seem very nice and accommodating. The location is nice and flat, up a hill away from the highway noise. Great views of the fall colours. Not far from Chutes Provincial Park where there is an amazing hike. Thank you for everything and hopefully we will meet on the way back from BC. Virginia and Bob

A welcome sight!

Our first boondockerswelcome experience was so great! We were welcomed- after a really long day that ended verging on night- with very warm smiles and the urge to make ourselves at home. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!! They are welcome at our place anytime!

great conversations!

Stayed for 2 nights. It was a pleasure getting to know "up the hill". Kind, funny, and full of energy! I hope to cross paths again one day.


July 2020

an enjoyable stay

Highly recommended.
A very nice place and stay, some privacy on a flat spot a short way up a hill from the house. There is a short trail through the woods nearby, and there is some Canadoan shield rocks at the end. The camp site is well sheltered among trees, yet open and level for easy setup in the center.
Host were very friendly, and we had a wide ranging talk about 'things'!


July 2020

Pleasant stay

Amazing Host and Lovely Quiet Setting

Up the hill is a really nice place to stay, Our host were really nice and we had a really nice conversation. They offered us many different locations where we could park and we chose to park in the evening and morning shade. We will be be by again soon.

A Welcome Stop

I am heading west for a move and in these uncertain times I was grateful for a place to stop. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. I didn’t see them before I left so I will say it here! Thank you!! :)


June 2020

A safe harbour

I need to get to Vancouver Island for a family issue.
This is the perfect way to distance although you can't get to know your hosts. 🙁
This a lovely property and I'm grateful for having it available.


April 2020

Thank you!

What a sweet place to stay in this uncertain time for travelers. We are heading home to PEI and could not have done it without the support of Boondockerd Welcome. This Host is kind and lovely. There is a level space to park and it's very quiet in the evening. We wish we could have gotten to know them better, but of course we are social distancing. So, a hello from there house to make sure we were all settled in . We will be back when the earth says it's ok.
With thanks,
~Jeana & Mark

August 2019

Very accommodating hosts

Enjoyed talking and getting to know our hosts and info about the area. There is a lot a road noise during the day but it quited down later in the evening. parking up on the hill near also was level and nice and private but the electric there is only for lights. If you need power for microwave or other item you need to park down at bottom next to the garage. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality.


July 2019

Lots of room

Host are real nice folks. We had fun with them. He let me use his riding lawn mower. That was fun. Lots of room. Upper area is a big circle. Great for pull thru.


July 2019


Had a lovely visit with our infomative hosts. They suggested a different route to our next desination which was very enjoyable. A great place to stay.


July 2019

A lovely couple full of wisdom and character

Thank you both so very much for hosting us at your beautiful property along the Trans-Canada highway. You were both so gracious to accept our request despite the fact that you both had just returned from your own camping trip. You were both gracious in touring your piece of paradise, playing show and tell with your grapes, gardens, tractors and such. Although it was hot, we caught a lovely breeze from your spot up the hill which made sleeping easy in what is likely to be the hottest week of 2019. We hope to maybe get in another trip up north this year, and will see you again if we can make that happen. You are both so welcome to use our patch where Salem ends... any time.

Quaint Property in a remote area of the Trans-Canada Hwy

P..& D.. generously welcomed us onto their remote property along the TransCanada Highway. We enjoyed a peaceful night after a very in depth conversation covering the topic of entrepreneurship. They are two self-made folks who genuinely enjoy visitors.


July 2019

Super stop , cozy sleep unforgotten People :))

It is difficult to describe such a nice , cultural and friendly people as our first hosts from " Up the hills" as boondockers.

Terrific Experience

An absolutely wonderful couple who were kind enough to share their terrific RV space with us and walk around the village with us. Thank you!

Friendly couple / quiet place

This was our first boondocker experience and it was amazing. Paul and his wife greeted us late evening with a great smile. Their lawn has great quiet and private place for parking where we rested. We had our two dogs with us and it didnt bother them all. I highly recommend them.

Up The Hill

Lovely host. We shared a bottle of wine, dinner with great conversation. The spot was flat and off the road.


October 2018

Peaceful stay at the up-the-hill

We were lucky to meet this wonderful couple and we talked for a few hours. Pleasant discussion about life, politics and vegetarian culinary. We were scheduled to stay 2 days but due to the weather we wanted to arrive earlier at our next destination so we stayed only 1 night. We want to thank Paul and Diane for allowing us to stay at their land. Beautiful place up the hill with lots of "cache" spots to discover.

Merci beaucoup et à la prochaine! :)

Terrific Hosts!

Paul and Diane were the most hospitable hosts! It's obvious that they truly enjoy hosting and meeting people. In addition, they have created a great site, level and pretty, a bit up the hill. Highly recommended!

C’était magnifique. La reception, faire connaissance, l’appéro, mais surtout l’emplacement à passer la nuit, les légumes du jardin.On a été très généreux. Mais aussi: Up the hill dans toute tranquilité.
Merci beaucoup et au revoir.

We were very fortunate to stay at Up The Hill for our first BW experience. The hosts were generous, gracious, and fun.

We can't imagine having better hosts for our first BW stay.

Thank you!

Wonderful hosts!

Our stay was very pleasant, mainly because these hosts are so gracious and hospitable. A number of sites were a available, each one easy to get into and good spots for our rig. Thank you so much!

What a welcoming couple

Wonderful spot to spend the night. We were immediately invited in and given drinks. Later we sat around their table and shared stories for several hours.

Hope you can come visit us sometime.


July 2018

Loved it!!

They could host a rally on their beautiful property.
Wonderful people. Interesting conversation.
Hope to see them again.


July 2018

Lovely generous couple

This was my first experience with this site after typically staying in Walmart lots. Paul and Diane couldnt have been sweeter or more accommodating to my needs. I sleep in my car while traveling and since it was my 70th birthday, they surprised me by letting me sleep in their van so I could stretch out for the night. It was lovely and cool and they even treated me to a much needed shower. Paul is church organist and it was great to hear him play. I couldnt have had a better experience!


July 2018

Charming Couple, Spacious, peaceful surroundings

We had a great time meeting Paul and Diana. They had lots of great information to share with us. Super friendly. Paul helped us get situated just right for a great night's sleep.

Great experience

The first boondocking experience is great with these couple and place. They are very nice, friendly and helpful. We shared some RV experience and had very happy conversation. The property is beautiful, quiet and at a very convenient location. If we go to that area again, we will visit them again for sure and welcome them boondocking at our place.

July 2014

nice folks

We couldn't make the timing work for an overnight boondock but stopped in to upthehill on our way through. Very nice people and a convenient stopover off Highway 17. They have a pretty little hill to park on, up the hill back from their house. Maybe next time.
