Beautiful Sitr

Host was very welcoming. Our view was spectacular. It was easy in and easy out, quiet and relaxing for a quick stay.

If you want an truly authentic prairie experience this is the place for you!

It is easy to imagine days gone by when you sit outside overlooking the prairie. The vastness is breathtaking. If you have mountain bikes I suggest you bring them along. We were given the opportunity to ride across the prairie on truck tracks or cow paths from isolated windmill to isolated windmill. The windmills give you an true appreciation for the importance and value of water on the prairie. If you don’t have a bike a nice hike would also be wonderful.
A special thanks to our welcoming hosts for inviting us to an evening campfire. We truly enjoyed hearing about the area and their historical experiences.
We highly recommend this Boondocking spot. It afforded me the chance to check off something on my bucket list—spending the night on the open prairie.

Beautiful Landscape and amazing host!

We enjoyed a very quiet, beautiful and welcoming night’s stay ar Home on the Range! We were welcomed in the driveway and had a delightful and informative chat with our amazing host. We were quickly guided to our place under the full moon. Wish we could have stayed longer and explored more😢. Highly recommend this beautiful location of a historic homestead to anyone passing this way! Thank you for your hospitality:-).

Amazing place!

We thoroughly enjoyed Jim’s hospitality and help. His location is breathtakingly beautiful and is easy to access from I-80. Don’t worry about the “dirt” road. It is very well maintained and easy to navigate. The site where we parked was totally level and gave us a great view of the Wyoming countryside. Jim went out of his way by loaning us a power cord dogbone that he was using on his own RV. Many thanks for your kindness and generosity!

Authentic Wyoming

JBAT66 was a gracious host who provided me with an electricity hookup and offered water and directions to food and gas. The best part was the view of the high prairie. Probably 10 miles of grass with hardly any structures. It is easy to imagine ypu slipped back into the 1870s west.

Some of the best people you will ever meet!

Jim & Paula thank y’all again for allowing us to extend our stay at your peaceful place. We truly needed to relax and unwind and are so grateful for your generosity. When y’all are in Texas we would love to host y’all. We might visit in October on our way back home if y’all are available? I will message you after the 18th to see what the doctor says about your wrist. Praying 🙏🏻

Our new friends

I cooked dinner and invited our hosts. We ate outside on their patio and social distanced. We really enjoyed getting to know Paula. We shared some of our life’s stories. We were able to see a herd of antelope and deer up on the hill. It was a good way to end the day. This is such a peaceful and quiet place we are staying a few more days.

Lovely peaceful place, lovely people.

The hosts were so gracious allowing us to stay last minute on a Saturday as our previous plans didn't work out. We were nervous about scrambling to find a spot. It was SO quiet and peaceful. We pulled into their field and it was totally level for us! We have loved staying at Boondockers Welcome places on acreages because we want to buy land and want to experience what it's like being away from the city. Thanks so much for letting us stay on your land for a few days on our way to Colorado!

Where the Antelope play

Jbat66 are wonderful hosts. Greeted us when arrived and even helped me get hooked up in the rain. I was very grateful for the help. The location is level and has a great turnaround/pull through for any size rig. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular here. The antelope come out to play on the road and if you’re an early riser it’s a thrill to watch them play. It’s very peaceful and quite here at Home on the Range. We needed medication shipped to us and the host allowed us to have it shipped here. They are the nicest people you will ever meet. We still have not been able to get a monthly place to stay in Montana and the hosts graciously told us we can extend our stay and we did. We are so glad we joined Boondockers Welcome and found this wonderful place and met these beautiful people.

I would STAY AGAIN

jbat66 were very generous & accommodating; I was allowed to stay 3 weeks while waiting for my job that was already 2 months on hold. I had ordered a number of things and they were sometimes left at the PO instead of their mailbox, jbat66 even went to the extra trouble to pop over to the PO to pick up the last of them on the day I left. I’ll be heading back in that direction this fall, I will definitely stay over for the 5 or less day limit. I was “hidden” behind the barn to keep my “girls🐾” from causing too much annoyance and to block some of the wind. jbat66 were very helpful.

Relaxing and Quiet

Beautiful and large ranch that offer plenty of choice spots to stay. Truly Wyoming at its best. We enjoyed sitting around after supper and exchanging adventures. Thank you for your hospitality.

Beautiful Landscape!

Home on the Range was very welcoming. We enjoyed sitting around their beautiful fire pit and chatting and we loved the beautiful landscape there! We are so grateful for them having us. It is a fantastic place to rest for a bit.

AWESOME HOSTS

HomeOnTheRange has been awesome, they check in regularly to see if I end anything, and let me “hide” behind the “barn” to get some blockage from the winds when pop up occasionally. I would definitely stay here again. The only thing that would make this PERFECT would be if there were animals around 🤪, but I did get to see/visit with their “2 kids🐾“

Amazing views

This was a great location. Our hosts were very welcoming and made sure to check in on us to see if we needed anything. Amazing views and great wildlife. This has been our favorite Boondockers place yet!

Truly a home on the range

Very welcoming and helpful. Enjoyed the wildlife. Cows near every day with calves. Grouse, meadowlarks, swainson hawk working the fields. Kept us and our binoculars busy.

Relaxing

We’ve enjoyed staying at Home on the Range. It has been a very peaceful and relaxing experience. The times we’ve gotten to interact with our hosts has been very positive and enjoyable even with the distancing we are all facing in our world right now. Our hosts have been very welcoming and accommodating as well as attentive. We highly recommend Home on the Range 👍

Very welcoming couple

Since social distancing is currently the norm we haven’t had much interaction with our host. When we do see and speak to each other it’s very pleasant. Usually talk about the events of the day. I’m sure under different circumstances we both would be interacting a lot more. They’re very friendly people.

Very accommodating

Because of the virus we’ve all kept our appropriate distance but have also had good conversation. Very nice couple, very welcoming, very pleasant surroundings. Would definitely recommend staying there.

Quiet, beautiful sunrise

What a wonderful couple ! My first time using “Boondocker’s” and my first experience was perfect! jbat66 and his wife were so very welcoming, offered me water and electricity.... number of options to park my rig. We had a great conversations. Their Australian Cattle Dogs got to meet one of their cousins, my ACD puppy! Will surely be back on my return trip! Thank you !!
