Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My wife and I own a bowling alley Uinta Lanes and a Restaurant, Edge of Town Pizza Pub, in Evanston Wyoming we both love to travel in our 37ft 2019 Forest River Georgetown 378XL. We have 3 kids all military and all over the USA. We love to travel to see them. We are pet lovers and have 2 small dogs and a cat that never leaves the Motorhome that travel everywhere with us. In addition to our Bowling alley/Restaurant we both hold down other jobs so life gets busy. We have a goal to live full time someday in the Motor home and travel where ever we feel like going.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Pretty adapt at doing most anything. Owning a restaurant and bowling alley has made us both pretty capable of doing what needs to get done.

Ericksonjr's Pets

Two small dogs and a cat. We love all animals.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Of course its ours. Since we are host for multiple sites. But as far as travel goes we haven't had the opportunity to do much boondocking. Looking forward to doing this more in the near future.

Ericksonjr's Hometown

Evanston Wyoming is where we call home currently. We both grew up in the area an moved away but have been back here for 4 yrs after being gone for 20yrs.

Nice place, not pull through

The wings were amazing and this was a lovely place to visit. The staff was also really friendly. Just a warning, it says pull through but it’s not. They have their RVers back into spots.

Easy breezy

This is a good stop over heading west or east. Staff was friendly and helpful. Leveling was easy. The views are nice. A bit of train traffic but not too big of an issue. Was nice to go explore the historic town area and nearby state park. Nice to have a restaurant and bar close. Definitely warrants another stay.

All good.! no offensive lights, animals or traffic I played golf "on the fly "at Purple Sage. -wonderful at $35 inc cart! then took in Flaming Gorge which I found to be a flaming disappointment after such a long ride. Dirt roads to the water. Calif fire smoke as well that day. Wyo pretty much not into masks or vaccines so beware. Hospitals in crisis mode with Covid if one should be unlucky enough to need emergency care along your trek.

Fun & Yummy Small Business

This was a different boondockers welcome experience for us and I glad we BW helped us discover them. Great stopover stay traveling along the I-80. Although our host was out of town the staff greeted us when we pulled in and directed us where to park. Level gravel parking next to their main parking lot. Even with a full refrigerator, I wanted to try the pizza after reading all the positive reviews. We ordered the pesto chicken and if you prefer your pizza with skimpy serving of cheese... don't eat this one. It was amazing with flavorful pesto on a scrumptious crust topped with chicken and oodles of cheese. Service was perfect. A nice way to end a drive day. We didn't bowl but there's bowling and several pub games to spend your time unwinding!

Great Food, Great Fun

My husband loved his IPA and bacon jam pizza! We were happy we could also afford to bowl as a family! Parking was perfect, open and level. Unhitched and went swimming in bear lake. Amazing stay.

Great, laid back people; Great stay!

Had a great stay. Was nice to have a pizza place and bowling for entertainment on site. Everyone was very friendly and a waitress inside provided me with things to do in town! Relaxed and laid back.

Nice and welcoming people! Plenty of space and a beautiful view. We also visited the pizzeria and were served a delicious Thai pizza that was delivered to our camper, super class!!
Highly recommended.

Nice stop to supply

We were looking for a spot to stock up and this fit the bill. The little town was cute. Trains run all night. Tough to sleep sometimes. But the view was nice!

Long drive

It was great to pull in and setup, then cross the lot and order a good pizza and beer in air conditioning. Host and employees were so friendly and helpful. Host told us of a state park near by and it was free. The rest area across from state park was unique.

Peaceful stay

I so appreciated my two night stay here. I wish I had been able to visit the pizza pub but the heat just wore me out! Who would think you could have a completely peaceful and restful night right outside a popular bar and pizza pub but it is true! The staff with whom I had contact were very helpful and welcoming.

Perfect stopover

Greater as we drove in and told us were to park. Basic rule was there aren't any rules. 2 other campers spent the night with us. We went inside and enjoyed a 🍕. Would definitely stay here again.

Excellent location to stay, play and eat!

I had a wonderful stay at this location bowling/restaurant bar. The parking area is clean, quiet, conveniently located and the restaurant was delicious that I’m waiting until they open up to order some to go food to take with me. The host is kind and excellent at communicating; I appreciate them for being a wonderful host!!! Will definitely love to stay here again in my travels!!!

Excellent overnight stay

Had a great stay at Uinta Lanes. Host was awesome. Came out in the rain to show us where to park. One RV already there and 2 more arrived after us. Enjoyed pizza and wings in the restaurant before settling in for a comfortable night. Easy off I-80. Will stay again if passing through.

Fairly level parking— bowling was great, good pizza and wings... best boondockers welcome location if you ask my 8 year old twins.

Great place to stay

Our hosts were so welcoming! There were 7 RVs overnighting there the night we stayed with room for more. Great pizza and beer in the restaurant. The bowling alley looked good but my husband can’t bowl anymore and I didn’t want to bowl alone. It was a quiet and pleasant night, and we ate breakfast at Jody’s Diner on our way out the next morning.

Great pizza

Had a very enjoyable two day stay. There were several other campers the night we arrived but we got there first so we got the choice spot. We parked at the back of the lot overlooking the meadow and our spot was very level. It also was shielded from the lights of the parking lot at night. We watched the deer and the marmots and the birds flying around the meadow. We enjoyed lots of good conversation with our host. We had the steak pizza and it was very good. They even have some gluten-free options.hope to visit another time.

Such a fun stop

Stopped by on our way north. The hosts are fantastic. We had some great pizza and wings in their restaurant. Woke up to a dusting of snow and a moose out our window. Big gravel parking lot with plenty of room for our big rig to turn around. We would definitely stay here again.

Excellent Host and Accommodations

The host is personable, helpful and accommodating. He offered to help in any way he could and also showed concern that my dogs were comfortable. Although no amenities are available for the RV there is a small bowling alley with a pub attached. I visited the pub and had wings and a cocktail. The staff in the pub are pleasant and efficient. They weren’t busy during my visit so everyone took time to visit with me. That’s nice when you travel solo.

Large open lot

The gravel lot is large and it was nice to be able to go into bowling alley and restaurant to spend some time.
Train track is close but doesn’t blow horn.

Great stop off I80

Great pizza and wings and cold beer to wash it all down. Just a couple of miles off I80, it was cold upon arrival. Bowling staff got us settled in. Snow was in the forecast so we hunkered down for some rest. Snow started soon after. Morning came with only a few inch’s on the ground. No issues with the departure. Sand trucks were busy.

Thank you for a great stay! We’ll be back!!!

Fun spot

Had a great stay here, just for the night as I made a long haul across the country. Even the employees in the bowling alley/restaurant were friendly and helpful! Had a great quick stopover! And have some pizza if you stay it’s delicious!

Unita try this place out

Host Ericksonjr told me I am not the only one that plays with the name Unita, taken from the nearby Unita Mountains. The location was easy to find and provided access to some delicious pizza in a restaurant open only five weeks now. While Ericksonjr shared about some site-seeing I could do, I just laid low and it was a great place to do that. The staff inside seemed to enjoy their jobs and made me feel welcome. Thanks Ericksonjr for the stay, and if I am in the area again I will be sure to visit.

Mike was a great host. He met us on arrival and showed us where to park, he gave us lots of information about the area. We enjoyed the delicious pizza and a quiet night.

Thank you!

Thanks Mike..for the great conversation! Enjoyed the stay. Would fit any sized rig, as parking lot would accommodate. Loved listening and watching trains in the distance. Peaceful place just 2 miles out of town.

Extremely Happy

We got in late host met us. Unfortunately the bowling alley was closed for renovations but we were told to still make ourselves at home. They are adding in a restaurant and we hope to make it back again for some good food and bowling.

Mountain Hospitality

Terrific stay in Evanston, WY. The property is easily accessed from I-80 and the host gave terrific instructions for arrival and set up. The lot is large and flat with easy turnaround. We were greeted and given the entire lay of the land by our very friendly host and we only wish COVID had not forced their business to close temporarily as it seems like a very fun place to visit and have a few local beers. In the evening we had a herd of male mule deer grazing next door, they were majestic with their antlers getting full. The marmots were entertaining and our dog did zero work to help chase them from their roost, but he enjoyed watching and listening to them as much as we did. We enjoyed a crystal clear night at a cool 48 degrees which made for great open-windows sleeping. Thanks for a great stay and we hope to visit again in the future!

Perfect Sleep to lead into the Uintahs

Super hospitality. Gave us the lay of the land.. good gas station, cheapest liquor store and best food. We opted for Don Rico’s for a Fathers Day steak dinner splurge ( see recommend on yelp). Bear River State Park ( no fees) is quaint and approachable day tripping ( fly fished a bit, picnicked, hiked wit the dog. Great to visit historic downtown and the Round House train station. Sure the railroad is out there but it wasn’t a problem. The marmots were most entertaining. Thanks for the stay! Best of luck with the remodel- pizza oven. Excited to bowl a few frames and have a slice with a beer another time.

Loved our host and loved our space!

We love Boondockers Wellcome! How amazing that we Can travel all over and meet like minded people and make such great friends! Our host was so patient with us as had to arrive late due to weather, road construction and multiple stops. When you travel with two dogs and a cat, “Pooh” stops are frequent.

Our host was great, meeting us on arrival and giving us guidance for parking. They space he offered was level and the view fantastic. He also gave me a heads up about a family of marmots that lived in some blocks. Morning found me with coffee and camera in hand. What cute little creatures! If you’d like to see my photos go to the Facebook group for BDW.

Welll def be stopping here again! Maybe next time the bowling allley and pizza house willll be open and welll plan a few more days!

Absolutely Beautiful

What an absolutely wonderful location. The host was very helpful and communicated with us several times. He greeted us on our arrival and let us take the run of his parking lot and choose where we wanted to park. The view is stunning and in the morning we saw deer, horses and a family of Marmots. I’ve learned that there are so many wonderful people in the world. Just love the new experiences boondocking brings

Exceptionnal host

Thank you so much for receiving us! Do not hesitate to park there. They are awesome. We arrived in March. Not a lot of traffic. Train during a day, nothing during a night. 5 minutes of all stores.
Un énorme merci de nous avoir reçu! N'hésitez pas à les choisir, ils sont accueillant et merveilleux. Nous sommes arrivés en mars. A cette date, il n'y a pas beaucoup de traffic. Nous entendions le train seulement le jour et il n'utilise pas les avertisseurs. C'est seulement à 5 minutes des centres commerciaux. (magasins, restaurants.)

Uinta Lanes: Wonderful hosts and newfound friends!

We stayed two nights at Uinta Lanes over Labor Day weekend in our 34 foot class A with our two dogs enroute from the Tetons to Arches. It was our best BW stay yet. The spot was huge, private, and our dogs could run off leash....but that’s not what made it great. M and S are perfect hosts. They greeted us upon arrival and even helped troubleshoot our generator problem. When we couldn’t get it running, they allowed us to plug in. We visited their bowling center for a few drinks and conversation and had dinner with them twice. They are a friendly and fun couple and we hope to meet up during our travels (they have a rig as well) and/or stay there whenever in southwestern WY. If you’re traveling in that area- stay at Uinta Lanes...you will have a great time and meet wonderful new friends! Thanks for your hospitality and keep in touch M and S!

Fun stop

A fun and easy stop. Right off a main road, easy to back in and set up. We bowled, had a cocktail, and a great visit. Hosts are positive and happy people (and big animal lovers!), which makes this stop a 10 in our book. Our dog loved them! Fun things to do around town, too. Bear River Greenway is close, with a walking path and bike trail. If you have time, take a drive on the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway, just gorgeous. We are already looking forward to visiting again!

Great People and nice stay!

We arrived later than we expected, but they let us know it wasn't a problem and that we could find a level spot, set up and stay as long as needed. We were just in need of a short overnight stay and since we arrived late and this was the first night of 3 on the road to our destination for our vacation. We got set up and shortly after our hosts came and introduced themselves. We had a chance to talk for a while and they were nice enough to invite us back on our return trip if we go back the same way.They will be open when we come back through so we're looking forward to bow;ing a few games and having some cocktails. Wonderful hosts, looking forward to staying again.
Thanks so much!

Great Hosta

Great entertainment! They met us in the lot when we pulled in and got us parked perfectly! Very accommodating people! We bowled a game with them and went out for a bite to eat too!
They offered us the WiFi password but the metal building kept it from working. They even offered us an extension cord but we refused and ran the generator once while we were there.
They LOVE your pets! Oliver was allowed to go bowling with us so he didn’t have to stay in the RV alone. He hung out with their dog Zeus while we bowled.
There is a train track close but I barely remember hearing it. We sleep with a sound machine.

Nice country setting

Our hosts were very welcoming. They did everything to make us comfortable. We dry camped but was offered an electrical cord. The bowling alley was closed so it was very quiet except for an occasional train that didn't bother us. We had deer outside our door when we woke up. We will definitely stop here if we pass through again.
