Our hosts were incredibly hospitable and helpful, particularly when we had a mechanical issue requiring assistance. Thanks also for the delicious tomatoes and lettuce!! We finally made it to Big Bend and had a fabulous time.

Although we didn’t meet our hosts since they were called out of town on an emergency we were met by Tom who told us where to park... very hospitable hosts and also helpful via text & phone... nice!

Wonderful stay

We had a wonderful stay at this location. We arrived early and the host had gathered a whole bunch of information for us to read about Big Bend National Park as she knew we were headed there next. The site was easy to find and a great stop over location for us! A nice quiet night for the family.

Good rest

Nice place to stay to rest up on our journey. Didn't get to meet our hosts as they were called away unexpectedly. But they left us in the care of their tenant who was welcoming and helpful. He checked on us several times to make sure we had everything we needed.

great spot for an overnight stay

February 2020

very knowledgable about Texas

we were happy to spend a couple of nights with Trisha and her husband Gay. She loaned us lots to read about the surrounding area and Big Bend where we are heading. Unfortunately Trisha wasn't feeling the best so our visiting time was limited. Hope you feel better soon and have a great summer in Alaska!

Friendly pleasant stay

They were very friendly and I enjoyed my stay. Location is conveniently located close to town and the lake.

They are both very helpful and friendly. She was looking for me and help me to get settled. Sharing ideas for things to see in the area. One of the places I want to go to is closed today so they are nice enough to let me stay another night so I can visit tomorrow when it's open. Very easy to get to a lot of room.


January 2020

What a nice host

We stayed one night, did all our email business, had electricity, played the electric Mandoline, stayed in the night under the factory roof while there was a thunderstorm, filled the water tank, had talks with very nice Trisha, what do you want more? Wish Trisha and her husband all the best in their retired life!

Come and talk to the judge.

Very accommodating host and hostess. Easy in and out. By the highway but not all that noisy. Hostess did provide all the local sight seeing information that we needed. On the way out of town, up the road a little way, you can visit the Judge Roy Bean visitor center.


January 2020


Really great experience Trisha and Gay were gracious to invite us to their family bonfire. We had a great time and met new friends!


January 2020

Wonderful folks

We so appreciate the hospitality of Trisha and Gay. Our only regret is we didn’t have longer to visit but the long drive ahead was calling. We received great advice on seeing Big Bend and went to Terlingua as suggested. We look forward to our return visit.
Thank you so much!

Perfectly timed stop coming from Big Bend National Park

Trisha's place is very convenient off Hyw 90 and a perfect distance for a days drive to or from Big Bend National Park......Cell service is 4 bars AT&T....propane is available a couple doors down and the Walmart is a mile or so away so very convenient to supplies. Our hosts were lovely, and we solved some of the worlds problems over a glass of wine and talked about their upcoming Alaska trip.
A perfect stop....thank you for your hospitality Trisha.....

Great couple

I spent a couple nights with them as I checked out Del Rio. The weather was threatening severe storms and they were kind enough to let me park under a metal roof. That was great. Easy to find, right off the highway.


April 2019

Great stay, great people.

Trisha & Gay provided a great place for us to park. Water & 15amp power was available.

Great place to stay!

Trisha and Gay are the best hosts. They provided a place to stay, water and electric. They hosted us for supper which provided us with an opportunity to share information. They also gave Dave a fly fishing lesson. I would highly recommend a stay here! We became fast friends, exchanged information and hope to meet up with them in Alaska this summer.

Connies Location

We enjoyed staying at this site very much. They even had a covered area for us to back into with our 30 ft motor home. They had a lot of knowledge of the area and provided us with many brochures to chose from for the areas we were gong to go, especially BIg Bend National Park. I really appreciated their experience for all the towns and places in the area.

Quick stay

Only stayed one very comfortable night under cover. Met host briefly and they were accommodating and helpful.


February 2019

New friends, and very sad to leave xxx

Trisha and Gay are the most welcoming and friendly people we have ever met! Trisha went out of her way to give us tips on where to go in the Big Bend, and how to look out for scorpions. Our two girls loved Trisha, and didn’t want to go to our next destination....
We have made some amazing friends, and the few hours we spent together we will remember forever.
Thank you both for a perfect stay
Lots of love

Amazing hosts, more important - New Friends!

Host couple was just the best. Of course, it would have been great if they had just offered a place to stay. But they reached out to us and made us feel at home - with info on the area, but also heartfelt camaraderie! We hope to go back again.


February 2019

Perfect rest time

We had a great stay. Our hosts were super helpful, flexible and informative. We had a nice time chatting over a bonfire. If ever back in the area we’d love to chat more

Great Hosts and Wonderful Location

Trisha and Gay could not have been more helpful and welcoming.
Invited us down to their fire pit for happy hour and we exchanged stories until dark.
Graciously offered us water and power as well as an enormous amount of information and history of Del Rio and the surrounding area.
Wish we'd had another night to spend with them and do some more exploring.
5+ stars for Boondocker Hosts.
Thanks- Wuz a Dory

Very friendly and welcoming and easy to park space!

Thank you to Trisha and Gay! I didn't get to spend much time with them but they were very warm and welcoming and it was definitely an easy and convenient place to park and stay.

Awesome Hosts

Trisha and her husband were terrific and made our 1st stay with Boondockers Welcome the best!


January 2019

Very hospitable, friendly and makes you feel at home

Trisha was very accessible the day I was on my way, provided great directions and was kind enough to walk out to the front of the area. She guided me to an available spot, and offered up great information on the local places to eat. I really appreciate host's like Trisha because she makes boondocking very relaxed and enjoyable. I hope to make it to Del Rio again at some point and the next time I will bring my U.S. Passport so I can make the trip to nearby Mexico.


January 2019

Wonderful hosts

These are extraordinary hosts. We really enjoyed visiting with them and they made sure we had everything we needed. They provided great travel information and went well beyond our other Boondockers experiences. Thank you!


December 2018

Awesome first boondocking experience

For our first experience we’ve been lucky to meet some wonderful people. Trisha and Gay guided us for our Big Bend adventure and gave us good tips for the coming steps of our odyssey to California. The level terrain was perfect for our rv and the place quiet and safe, close to the highway and services nearby. Thanks to these welcoming hosts and hope to see you again.


December 2018

Super quiet !

Located 700 meters south of where google says it is. Best to look for 4 white mail boxes.

So quiet and peaceful. I used the water hookup. There was electric available but I didn’t use it.

Easy in and out which was good for me since I got back late each night after spending the day around Del Rio.

I hope to vsit here again. Very nice man.


December 2018

Oasis in the Desert

Trisha and Gay were amazing hosts and lovely people!! We are delighted that they also have a Hi-Lo trailer and allowed us a tour. This was the perfect place to stop between Big Bend and San Antonio. Thank you guys so much!


June 2018

Great Host, would stop here again.

This was only a one night stop, but we had a good short visit, as it was on a work night so we could not visit long, but very nice host. Let us plug in for the night, as it's very hot for Canadians here. Very nice place to park. Hope if they come to Canada, that they let us play host for them. Thank You very much for your time and generosity. The Butler's
