Some fine RVing here, just like past reviews say. It’s a pretty location, has great hosts, has water (good pressure even) and electricity, and it’s just off a main roadway (traffic noise is barely audible). Thank you, Spirit Creek Farm!
Staying at Spirit Creek Farm was so nice. We had our choice of (3) spots with water & 30 amp hookups out in the "GATED" Field! Wow, a gated community the real way it was started.
If you need to lift your spirit as we did, then go re-charge your Human & RV batteries here. Beautiful informative "Welcome Letter" was provided to us about the area, syncing our movements within a working farm, and where to go and how to get things RVers need. WOW! I wish every Boondocker Host would do the same type letter to quickly download valuable information from the Host to the Guest and use as a future reference. Loved the fresh DUCK EGGS for breakfast too!! Yes, the ducks have free roam. Free range duckies.
We really appreciated the WIFI connection way out in the field also. Was able to connect to email, internet, and the weather radar when needed. If you want upgraded RURAL time in your RV, you will find it here. If you need to primp and press your designer jeans or shave before going outside to see the baby goats, then maybe stay in the city areas because you must open, move, and close/lock the (2) gates for ingress and egress.
Look forward to returning to Spirit Creek Farm in the summertime to go golfing and cool off in the area's lakes. Our host was a 10 out of 10 and are a loving, caring family. Recommended!
It was so good, we had to come back when we traveled through the area a second time. Again the hosts are great and the land is beautiful. There is plenty of room and we enjoyed meeting other guests as well.
We loved staying at Spirit Creek Farm. The hosts made us feel at home. We are so grateful for their hospitality!
These awesome hosts responded quickly to our request to stay at their cool farm. This was great for us because our travel plans changed due to the weather forecast, and so we ended up being nearby unexpectedly. This was a great place to stop and rest, especially since we weren’t quite sure how the weather would cooperate. Our spot was very private, and it seemed as though we were the only ones there. We were given excellent information about anything that might be needed or wanted in the nearby area. We really loved the animals and felt very welcomed staying at Spirit Creek Farm.
I enjoyed staying there for 2 nights. The host was welcoming and provided a comprehensive list of information. I would definitely recommend this location if you are in the area. Very nice!
Very serene and pretty the hosts were wonderful
They offered to assist us with anything we might need
We have been on the road for about 2 months and this is by far the best place we have spent time
We are sorry that we didn’t have more time here and that we didn’t have the time to explore the area
John and Lacie were the perfect hosts! They were superkind and provided us with goat milk and vegetables and let us and our 2-year old daughter pet their farm animals.
Campsites were spacious and even had a water and electrical hookup!
Thanks John and Lacie for having us. You are good people, god bless.
Great spot! This place had four power hook-up sites. He can fit more he says. However, the power output is only 100 amps. So, if you are three other RVers are trying to run your AC, you may have a brownout. I did not plug-in as I don't have an EMS. I won't risk it. But I really didn't see him after he set us up and then again right before we left. The goats were fun to watch during the day.
Cool spot, thanks for letting me stay!
The hosts were great and made our stay extremely enjoyable. 10/10 would stay here again.
We had the chance to milk a goat and learn about the local culture and people.
Thank you so much for providing a place for us to stay while we visit the area. spiritcreekfarm is a great asset to the community.
The space we borrowed had fresh water and a 30amp outlet. Our verizon phones had 2 bars of 4G reception and the farm wifi helped when our phones were not cooperating.
Very laid back hosts that offer a nice setting with optional water and 30-amp hookups. There is something about being able to see both wild and domestic animals right outside your window that puts a smile on your face.
Spirit Creek was a nice place to pause for the night on our trip from Idaho up to Canada. They have good docking space and we're wonderful, responsive, hosts. Water was available, power if you needed it and even a trash barrel!
J & L and their family were kind, helpful and very generous in their time and home. We are very thankful for their kindness.
My 9 yr old daughter was welcomed to their barn to milk and feed the goats, pet the rabbits and play with their friendly dogs. We were lucky enough to share in their goat milk, duck eggs and garden veggies. It was a healthy and delicious supplement to our meals during the stay.
The lot was fairly level, had 30 Amp outlet and clean water. To drive into the back space behind the barn be sure to keep the gates closed so the dogs do not escape. Park your rig so that you can easily watch the goats and Llama roaming around and play. Be on the lookout for the many wild turkeys roaming the area.
In town we ate at Terry's cafe, the meal was so-so, and we went swimming at Spirit Lake.
There is a free RV dump about 3 miles away in town at B&J RV Park, the dump and water is easily accessible from the street.
J & L - thank you very much and bless your family with your kindness and sharing with us.
A wonderful spot to stay and the host is a wonderful host. The farm is peaceful and and quite. Has wild turkeys goats and even a llama. Hope the stay here again and explore the area better.
John met us at the front of the driveway and guided us in to his large parking area. He has several hookups for water and electricity, and was also hosting a family from Iowa. Really nice and quiet rural spot, we'll keep it in mind for when we head north again. Thanks again!
We only had one night here but it couldn’t have been better! Our host gave us gifts fresh goat milk, duck eggs and squash from the garden. If we hadn’t needed to get back on the road, we would have stayed longer.
Spirit Creek hosts are most generous, we spent 5 nights in this wonderful setting.
Goats, a Llama, rabbits, wild turkeys and the hosts pups were amusing.
I milked their goat and we received raw goat milk for our coffee, fresh eggs and large beautiful squash.
Electric and water are such a plus when out one has been on the road for months.
Thank you so very much for your hospitality and remember the manatees!!
Lovely working farm. I enjoyed my morning coffee listening to the goats and ducks. The host provided a handy guide to local sites and helpful information including the dump site in town. Be sure to fill your water tanks with the artisan well water. The best.
Because of awful weather forecast, we asked if able to stay additional night. No problem, and greatly Appreciated.

Spirit creek farm is a wonderful BW location. Host met us on the highway to guide us in the right entrance.
The set up location is large enough for four RVs, with water and 30 watts of power for each. In addition to the kindness and companionship of the hosts, we also made friends with another Boondocker couple.
We greatly appreciated the efforts of the hosts, as well as a farm tour. We learned that a llama will protect a goat herd from predators. We greatly appreciated the “parting gifts” of goat milk and duck eggs. A wonderful stay on the Idaho panhandle.
Our stay was awesome! In addition to a serene setting and picturesque mountains and sunsets as your back yard, we were gifted with fresh duck eggs and goat milk! Thank you so much for sharing your space to fulltime rvers like us!
Two if the nicest hosts you will find! They welcomed us with fresh goat milk and fresh duck eggs. They even let us try milking the goats! They were full of ideas and recommendations of where to go and what to do. They let us borrow their kayaks to take down to the lake for the day. All of their dogs are friendly and love attention. An absolutely must stay location if you are in the area, as the title says, it was the best!
We were so blessed that we were allowed a second stay while we were in the process of finding a home to buy! We are doing a year full time and fell in love with the area so we needed to stay in the area unexpectedly longer. We are so happy that we were able to make new friends and future neighbors! Such a wonderful, peaceful, homey place to stay!
We stopped here on our route between Washington and Montana. We wanted to check out Coeur d'Alene and this place was about 40 minutes away. It was so nice to have hookups and so generous of the hosts to provide. Being on a farm with the animals was a great experience for our daughter who says she wants to have a farm. The night sky was amazing here.
Unfortunately for us, we are on a tight time schedule and had to leave shortly after waking. The hosts were a complete joy and would love to come back and be able to enjoy the farm. Loved waking up to turkeys, goats and llama right outside our windows!
Second time staying at Spiritcreekfsrm would not hesitate to stay again.
Our family had an unforgettable stay. We only stayed one night because of our plans, but we wish we could have stayed longer. We would absolutely stay again. The family is so kind and informative. They let us pet and milk the goats (and gave us some delicious fresh goats milk!), hold rabbits, pet their dogs and puppies, enjoy their ducks, and explore their beautiful land. With room for 3 RV’s we even got to meet, and the kids got to play with other kids. This will be an unforgettable memory, we are so thankful we got to have.
Just finished a restful 2 night stay at Spirit Creek Farm. Very hospitable, wonderful hosts, and the RV parking has 30-Amp power and water hookups! We were very tired after hiking all over Glacier NP and this was the perfect quiet spot to rest and recover for a few nights, thank you again for hosting us!
Great location on a working ranch in a valley where quiet, peaceful, and nature are the norm. Close to Farragut State Park and many other attractions. Very welcoming family and we got to play with puppies, who doesn't love that? Already looking forward to staying there again.
My wife and I spent this past weekend at Spirit Creek Farm. Where we stayed was easy to access and even had 30amp service and water hooks ups. Our host's hospitality and friendliness were amazing. From bringing us fresh duck eggs and goat's milk to showing us around the farm. I even got to milk a goat, a first for this boy from Long Island. Getting to meet wonderful people like our host is the best part of living the RV life. We hope our travels bring us near Spirit Creek Farm in the future.
Jonathon and Lacie have been excellent hosts during my 5 night stay on their farm. They accommodated me with level ground to park my RV on with full hook-ups. A plus was that there we'll water is the best!!! The day I arrived they welcomed me with Farm fresh duck eggs and a Quart of fresh goat's milk. The following day I asked if I could watch them milk the goats, and I not only watched, they let me give it a try. Throughout the week I had the opportunity to tour their farm and learn more about Their morning and evening routine with their animals. They have ducks, goats, rabbits, and a Llama. Staying there Was really fun and relaxing.
Everything they wrote in their profile was 100% accurate. My 10 year old loved meeting the puppies and baby ducks and goats, and learning how to milk a mama goat! It's peaceful, and beautiful, with great sunsets, and it's easy to go visit all the attractions around here, since it's right off the highway. And, the complimentary goat milk and duck eggs were delicious! They're good folk.
