Wonderful Guests

They gave me advance notice on their arrival time and gave me some updates during the day as they were traveling which was nice as I could schedule my work to be here when they showed up. They did not need much to set up their motorhome. Later we had a very enjoyable conversation. I do hope to see them again in our travels.

Farm stay in Souris

The Goodwills were the perfect hosts and provided a lovely place to stay! We also visited the town of Souris to see the wandering peacocks and the swinging bridge. Thanks for your hospitality!

September 2021

Friendly Farm

Hospitality was excellent! The hostess took the time to give our daughter a tour of the farm. She really enjoyed the horses. It was a lovely working farm. Friendly and gracious hosts. Would definitely revisit.

A Touch Of Farm Life

Totally enjoyed our stay, our talks and our visit in Souris. Learning how others live in this big old world is so amazing. The host were perfectly gracious and knowledgeable, and helped with the town attractions. When ever we are out this way again, this would be a must return. Thanks for some great memories.

Amazing stay

While crossing Canada we had the pleasure of spending a night at this picturesque farm. Great people, amazing scenery, lots of room, and very knowledgeable about farming and RV’ing.

At one with Nature

What a super place to park in nature. We had our own little area set up for coffee/wine and feeding the horses was fun. Our hosts entertained us each night and there were lots of stories swapped and information exchanged. The little town of Souris was very cute and we enjoyed the WiFi at the local coffee shop over a well brewed cappuccino. Of course we had to walk the swinging bridge and check out the peacocks. A wonderful stay with wonderful salt of the earth people. Thanks for your generosity, and kindness, and hope to see you south this winter.

Wow, what a picturesque farm!

The hosts were so welcoming and offered me many different sites to choose from for the night. It was so peaceful and relaxing that I wish that I could have stayed longer.

The farm artifacts, displayed so artistically on walls and around various trees, made you feel like you were stepping back in time.

It was also nice to meet two other human members of the family, along with the horses, cows, cats and dog. What a friendly bunch! 😃


August 2021


Thankyou to our wonderful hosts! The spot for our trailer was like a B&B with everything we needed for a great stay. We loved the opportunity to visit with your animals and hearing your boondocking experiences.
We hope to visit again in the future!

Thank you for sharing your space for us Boondockers!

Another great stay at Goodwill Farms!

Thank you again for a great stay. We loved visiting with the hosts and the animals! The kids loved it too! This is one of our favourite boondocking spots to visit. If we are in the area again we will definitely be back 😊

Perfect Visit !

What a great final stopover on our trip from Vancouver Island, for our last visit with Boondockers Welcome hosts, before reaching home near Winnipeg! Beautiful camp spot, great site and services, farm setting, and gracious friendly people. Animal lovers paradise, and three new friends, our hosts and Cammy, their dog. Plan to return next trip west.

So Much Fun

Such a beautiful place! Lots of cows and horses and peaceful. Would visit again for sure!

Great experience at Goodwill Farms

A very positive and unique experience in a beautiful setting with great, experienced BW hosts made our stay here a highlight of our trip across Canada.

Easy access with our 45' truck and trailer in an area that is picturesque, in southern Manitoba farm country.

Highly recommended!


December 2020


We were travelling across Canada in December and with a same day request, our hosts at Goodwill, totally welcomed us to stay. Super accommodating and lovely spot. Our stay was short so we would love to go back and meet the farm animals. 😉

Charming farm and lovely couple

What a cute farm with lots of horses and cows. The hosts were helpful and kind. We loved meeting and feeding some of the horses. Beautiful property. Thanks for hosting us.

Slice of Heaven

We had a short but sweet (and cold) stay at this beautiful farm! The hosts were kind and sincere! We were even introduced to some of their gorgeous horses! Highly recommend and hope to stay again on our return trip in warmer weather!

Thanks again!


October 2020

Warm and welcoming

I stayed here for 2 nights. The weather was unseasonably cold but the hosts were extremely warm. Nice farm with cows and very friendly horses. Great dog, Camy (sp?), friendly cats.
The host was very helpful with some issues I continue to have on this trip and I would like to return in better times to get to know them.


September 2020


Our stay with Joe and Lynn was like coming home to visit family. Lynn has decorated the yard just for us boondocks. Howard enjoyed talking farming with Joe and so did I. Directions were bang on. Next time were staying a couple of night. We went into town and walked the swimming bridge. Just great


September 2020

Best Morning Ever!

We would like to thank you for a fascinating experience, one we won't soon forget. The kindness you showed us was more than appreciated. We wish you all the best!

Must stay!


September 2020

What An Exceptional Experience!

Our hosts made our very first Boondockers Welcome experience exceptional! Not only were they warm and welcoming but the site for the RV was perfect. On top of all that they took us to visit the bison and we toured and fed the cows and horses! If we had to rate our stay out of 10, we'd give it a 20+!!


September 2020

Good Will Absolutely

I felt right at home .

Very hospitable

I am in Souris now to walk the suspension bridge

Beautiful Views and Excellent Company

The Goodwill Farm is a beautiful representation of farm life in rural Manitoba! Spectacular views of sprawling acres of fields, and friendly horses and cattle to visit with as well. The Hosts were as friendly and accommodating as can be! We loved hearing their stories, sharing company, and being introduced to their beautiful cows. We couldn’t be more thankful for the privilege of visiting, and hope we can again soon!


August 2020

Carefree in the country

A peaceful and absolutely delightful place to stay. They have a great set up for boondocking that makes you feel so welcome.
Great conversation at night. In the morning, they invited us to tour around their farm. We got to hang out with horses and cows! On our way out we stopped to watch the herd of bison across the way. Fabulous!

Return Visit

Jlgoodw once again made us feel very welcome. A beautiful location and amazing hosts! Thanks again!

Another Gem!

The amazing Boondockers Welcome community came through again! jlgoodw are the most welcoming and friendly hosts. We had an enjoyable evening with them on their porch chatting about life. They have the most beautiful spot which they encouraged us to explore and they welcomed us to join them as they fed the cows and horses!!!

Thanks so much! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!


September 2019


These folks were so kind. We arrived late and in the rain, but they were very gracious and helped us with positioning. In the morning, they kindly showed us around their farm. Just a great break from driving. Thank you.

Amazing Farm Stay

jlgoodw couldn't be more informative, helpful and kind.
Felt like being at an old friends place and we were very sad to leave.
They were very passionate about theyre beautiful farm and gave us a very informative tour.
Stunning location, nice nearby town with a great reasonably priced laundromat at the gas station.
We shared a lovely evening and hope we cross paths again one day.

Best Boondocking Experience

This was definitely our best boondocking experience so far! Our hosts were amazing: they really made us feel like home, they took their time to show us around and explain to us how their lifestyle is with the farm and everything. (So great for animals lovers like us!) It was such an interesting experience and we really enjoyed sharing our stories with the both of you. We hope to have you stay in our place someday! Thank you again xxx
