Topeka Kansas

Excellent spot to check out Topeka and Kansas City. Host even helped us fix a broken bracket on the trailer. So very grateful.


September 2021

Thanks KSkodi

We enjoyed our stay with KSkodi very much. Our host met us upon arrival and offered us several parking options. We visited for awhile before setting up in a nice shady spot.
He gave us several ideas of things to do in the area. We enjoyed sitting out with him and his wife. We exchanged info on various places we have traveled but the majority of the conversation was about his upcoming trip to Alaska which we did in 2014.
All in all it was a very enjoyable stay and hopefully we can return in the future. Thank you for your hospitality and very nice parking space.

Nice and easy

Really nice site - easy to access and under a large shady tree.
We didn't get to talk much with the hosts and took off in the morning because of an approaching thunderstorm.

Great BW Host

Exceptional place to stay, had a great conversation with the host upon arrival. He even has water and 50 amp hookup for a minimal charge, well worth it because of the heat and humidity. Will definitely stay again we are in the area.

Quiet and Relaxing

Nice spot just a few moments from Topeka...great use of green space to be comfortable in.


July 2021

Great host and very nice stay

July 2021

What a cool place!

This was a surprise treat of a place to stay for the night.

I am a gardener myself and wish I could have stayed for a few more days to get a chance to learn some things. I can tell this host has stories to share if you were to ask.

We arrived very late due to our front window exploding on our new RV on the way. This host was incredibly patient and even came out with their shop vac to help us with glass cleanup since it was everywhere in the Travel trailer.

This was a very short drive from the highway as well. A nice area…. That felt protected from the wind with the trees.

We would love to come for a visit again some day. Thank you for letting us stay!


July 2021

Roomy location with great water pressure.

We arrived later expected because of a mechanical breakdown. The host came out to help us park the rig and get setup. Nice level spot on gravel with best water pressure we've experienced. Would have liked to have been able to stay longer and listen to their travel experiences but we were running 4 days behind because of the repairs.

Great Host Great place to stay.

Host was very friendly. Greeted us upon arrival made sure we had all hookup that was wanted. Felt very safe and comfortable at this location.


September 2020

Lovely peaceful spot

Our host could not have been more friendly and accommodating. A beautiful flat, grassy lawn with great trees. What a good night’s sleep, along with good conversation. Thanks!


September 2020

Nice Place

A nice stop easy to navigate. We stayed in a 41 foot motorhome towing a F150 and we had no problem finding the place or parking. The host came out to greet us and help us park. We chatted briefly and he appears to be a very nice and helpful. We had access to power and water. The weather was absolutely horrible but the stay was very nice.


August 2020

Passing through, a great host.

Host was terrific, helped me get situated at the site. Very good location, looking forward to staying again.


August 2020

Wonderful first stay as a boondocker!

Had a really nice stay and visit at Blue Acres. Easy access in and out, all the amenities were right there. Nice evening conversation. Felt like our home camp. Thanks again Blue Acres!!!


August 2020

Stay at K..... Skodi

What a delightful place! It was an honor to stay at this location as our very first Boondockers guest experience. The host couldn't have been more pleasant or helpful and the electrical hookup was much appreciated as allowed is to be very comfortable without having to run the generator. Would highly recommend this stopping spot and would love to host them in return if they ever come out our way. Please enjoy the small token of appreciation left on the front porch and blessings to you and your family!


August 2020


My hosts were terrific! Guided me in/out, made sure I got hooked up and suggested places to visit and shared a lot of stories. The shade trees were an added bonus!. I had a wonderful stay and enjoyed visiting Topeka. Thanks to all the BW hosts!!


August 2020

A very nice and convenient stopover

KSkodi was a welcoming host with a spacious property in a rural setting just minutes from the local freeways. Nice and level. As a first-timer to Boondockers Welcome, we had a fantastic first impression.

Quiet Haven

We enjoyed our second night stay

Quiet country

This is our 2nd time staying in this quiet country home. Tom is always very nice. Gives us directions to the nearest store. Easy on off interstate.


July 2020

Great stay

Thanks soooo much to the hosts for an enjoyable stay. Our hosts at Blue Acres were most hospitable. We will certainly be returning in the future.


July 2020

Excellent host!

We were greeted upon arrival, helped with rig placement and answered any questions we had at the time. My friend is completely sold on Boondockers Welcome now! Thank you for a quiet and peaceful place to over night on our way to Colorado.


July 2020

Great stay!

Very friendly and helpful, especially since we are new at this. Quiet and peaceful and a good stop. We plan to stay in the future!


July 2020

Very friendly & welcoming!

So easy to drive a big RV onto the yard & hook-up to power! The host & his brother were there to greet us & get situated... then invited us to their campfire for s’mores!

Get Away

Great place to stay. Very quiet and relaxing experience.

Great Hosts! - Convenient Location

07/11/20-07/14/20 Hosts are fantastic people. Helpful, engaging, willing to help with anything you need. The parking areas are easy in and out and very hard packed. Hosts will help direct you to your location. Fantastic communicators. This location is easy to find and get to. Lots of shade trees. There is a lake nearby. There are geese and bats to watch. If you need groceries (HyVee or Walmart) or hardware (Menards, Lowes and Home Depot), its an easy 10-15 minute drive. Conversations are wonderful. With the Host's OK, we would definitely stay here again. We highly recommend. Thank you for the opportunity to stay!


July 2020

Best Host Ever

Had a fantastic stay. I won’t go into details, but rest assured if you need something, This host will be the most helpful host you’ve ever encountered.
Next time we are even remotely close to this host, we will reroute to include a visit!


July 2020

Class A Guy!

Despite having our schedule fluidly change not once, but several times, he was kind enough too accommodate our every need. Power and water connections were not only available, but abundant. Also wifi. His gracious wife came out and talked one night. He shared the porch, adult beverages, and information about some nice state parks we visited during our stay. Would stay again with them in a second, if they'd have us.


June 2020


He was very accommodating after we broke down and had to change our itinerary. We arrive late at almost 9 pm and he helped us park. Beautiful site. We couldn't visit as we are doubling days to get back on track. We will visit more on the return drive.


June 2020

Great Host

This was our second stay. Big rig friendly and the host could not be nicer. We will always continue staying here when in the area.


May 2020

Exactly what we were looking for!

The perfect spot and the perfect hosts! Beautiful shaded spot with 50 amp and if you need it water!! Very nice roads and easy in and out. It was close to Topeka that we stayed an extra day to take advantage of the great biking trails.
Wonderful time and hope to stay on the way back home!!! ; )


April 2020

Wonderful Host

Great host, Great host location, Close to most major hwy's in the area. Easy in /out. Big rig friendly. Met him upon our arrival, Offered the 50 amp electric service to us, directed us to the circle in which we did not have to unhook our toad, Offered water but we were fine and declined. Nice walk with the pups down to the Lake, Large property to let them stretch legs as well. Highly recommend this boondocking spot and we are sure we will return next time in the area!


April 2020

Beautiful place and great host

Even with the Covid-19 pandemic, KSkodi let me stay on his property. Super nice guy and super beautiful place. He even went out of his way to help me with a anti-sway bracket. Thank you!


December 2019

Phenomenal Hosts and Location

KSkodi put the “Hospitality” in Midwest Hospitality. Our host came out to guide us in on our arrival and offered great ideas on the local attractions while we set up. We were grateful to have water and power at our site. It was level, well packed and the trees offered awesome shade. Note: water pressure in the front site is high so be sure to regulate.
Our hosts were a wonderful and warm couple with terrific RV experience. An unforeseen medical emergency forced us into the hospital while staying at Blue Acres. . KSkodi could not have been more accommodating and even visited several times during our hospital stay. While ours was a unique situation, everything about KSlkodi’s hospitality indicates to me that anyone can expect this level of human kindness from them. Simply an incredible couple.
When we are cleared for travel, we plan to start back up where we left off; with KSkodi and their fantastic Blue Acres / Boondockers Welcome location.


November 2019

Awesome stay!!

This was my first stay with Boondockers Welcome and it was awesome. Tom was a great host and greeted my on my arrival. He gave me a tour of the property and we talked for a little while. After that he gave me the seclusion I needed to get some work done from my rig. Also, nice large open area for dogs to run as well as a fenced in area in the back if you want to use that too. He also provides a fire ring in the back of the house, but it was a bit too cold for me to use this time. Will be back on my next time through the area.


September 2019

Wide Open Space

Enjoyed our stay. Large level area with water and electric. Host was very accommodating. Great place to stay if you want to see the Wizard of Oz Museum or the Evil Knievel Museum. Looking forward to more great adventures.


September 2019


We added a day to our stay so we had time for the Oz museum. Tom was very accommodating.


September 2019


Nice location, nice people, nice site. We really enjoyed visiting with Tom and Bobbie. They have a very nice property and we appreciated having water and electric available. The Oz museum is about 40 minutes away and is a must see in my opinion. The Oz winery was fun too.

Thanks Kskodi, I hope you get on the road soon!


September 2019

Fantastic hosts!

Tom and Bobbi were wonderful hosts! We spent most of our time at Blue Acres with Tom. This was our first Boondockers Welcome stay. We have a 5 and almost 3 year old and he was awesome with them. He went above and beyond and even got water toys out for them to play with. We appreciated being able to use his 50 amp hookups since it was in the 90s and he even offered us water, even though we didn't need it. Their property is absolutely beautiful! Our family enjoyed their backyard and lake view. It was a short 20 minute drive into downtown Topeka, so all in all, it was a perfect stop. We would definitely stay there again and wish the Garcias the best on their future adventures!


September 2019

Always a great place to stay

This is my second time staying here and Dagny (my Beagle) and I both love it!

KSkodi is very friendly and helpful and makes for a wonderful host!


July 2019

Excellent host & location!

I needed a place to stay while driving back east and this was a fantastic location and KSkodi was an excellent host! The place is spacious & quiet and KSkodi was very accommodating in making sure I was setup and had everything I need.

I would definitely recommend this as a good place to stay!

Kansas hospitality

What a nice amiable and helpful host. He helped us to set up and also provided me with some wooden blocks to add to my small collection :-) ended up staying two nights instead of one, zero hassle. Thanks KSkodi
