Very nice couple with friendly pup. Would welcome them back anytime.
Sorry for the delay. You were here a short time yet you were a great guest and we enjoyed the visit. Do stop by again.
LarryinID & Guest are wonderful courteous guest. There lovely dog is well behaved and quiet. We would love to have them all visit again.
We would be happy to have LarryinID back anytime. Thanks for visiting us :)
LarryinID was very pleasant to host. He and his fiancé kept mainly to themselves, and we would have never even known that they had a dog (German Shepherd) with them. Very quiet and respectful. We would be happy to have them stay with us again.
A beautiful spot, complete with electricity, parts, advice, recommendations, fresh vegetables and goodies! This was after the great communication, perfect directions, friendly welcome and shared laughter. We will definitely stop next time we are in the area, maybe to spend some time exploring. It was nice to talk with folks who like to camp the same way we do. Thank you so much!
Larry met us as we arrived and helped us park. Plenty of room for our 35'class A. Level and clean. Loved the view of the hills. It was a very rainy day so didn't get to explore the area much.
Larry was very accommodating and so convenient to have hook ups!
This was a wonderful and calm stay! The hosts are very accommodating and the area was beautiful. Thanks for a peaceful day!
We’ve been traveling for close to four weeks now, and this was the most peaceful stay yet! Larry’s property is a bit off the beaten path but well worth it. The stars were brilliant the first night, and the sound of the crickets in the evenings reminded me of my childhood. Larry provided everything we needed to make our stay comfortable! Would definitely stay again.
The hosts were very cordial and generous. They have a beautiful property in an area of fabulous scenery. Thanks again for hosting us!
I reached out short notice, as a newbie to the site, and requested to arrive same day. LarryinID quickly got back to me with helpful details, and was at the house when I arrived. He showed me the specifics and worked with me on timing. I am so grateful for his kindness and will pay it forward down the road.
Larry’s Lookout is an amazing place to stay!! The hosts are very accommodating, and the views are great! It was the perfect place to be when the temperatures rose to almost 100…very grateful for the 30 amp electricity!
Enjoyable stay. We’re definitely glad for the hook up with the heat.
Larry was a complete wealth of information. He responded to me quickly and I had LOT’S of questions he answered them and then some.
Although my plans changed it would’ve been a pleasure to meet Larry and stay for sure.
If I’m in the area I would most certainly try to reconnect for a stay.
Thanks so much for a peaceful stopover. Would definitely stay here when passing through noise again. Great to avoid the urban aspects of Boise and just up the road from a great corps of engineers state park with beach. Thanks again!
What a lifesafer Larry’s Lookout is! Completing our first Idaho loop on a Hot Day in Boise. Our inner wall thermometer read 104°F, but with the spot and convenient 30 amp electric we cooled off to 86°F. Just what we needed. Host very accommodating. Thanks for having us.
Friendly host and beautiful location made for a very nice stay. We were blessed to spend the night.
Thanks for a pleasant and easy stay. Enjoyed my self immensely.
As previous stay with Larry, everything was fine, good communication, consideration, flexibility, clarity... He even did a far better job than me in reversing the rig into position.! Thanks again Larry for the lovely/quiet location
The hosts were very kind and generous. We enjoyed getting to know them and learning of their travels. Peaceful stay with great views and fun outside activities around the city to do. We definitely would love staying here again.
Our host was kind and accommodating. He even pointed out the herd of elk behind his house. The drive from town was quite picturesque. Peaceful, restful, beautiful. Thank you!!!
What a beautiful spot! The location is up in the mountains about 20 miles out of the busier spots in Boise. Got to see wildlife and spend a couple of days exploring this spot. The hosts were so friendly and made sure everything I would need was provided. Would recommend to anyone passing through the area!
Great location. The host were very friendly and helpful. We arrived late and we're greeted and had help backing in. Will stay again if in the area.
Our stay here was wonderful! We arrived after dark but had no trouble finding it. Larry was very friendly and even gave us some graham crackers for the kids to munch on while they waited for us to get set up. I would most definitely recommend stopping here if you’re passing through Boise and need somewhere to stop for the night!!
Larry was an excellent host. Very friendly. He brought us tomatoes and flowers from their garden! He also gave us info on a great boondocking resource. I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Larry for a great place to relax and regroup for a couple of days.
Super nice couple and great spot to park. She even shared some tomatoes with my wife who love the freshness.
Thanks for letting me stay at the night! 30' TT & 19' truck fit easily. 30 amp hook-up, didn't use water, let me use wifi out in the sticks! Great couple. About 15 miles out of Boise, great scenery.
Friendly and welcoming hosts! The setting was oh so comfortable and easy with quiet, beautiful vistas all around. We’d love to stay there again and maybe get to see some of the abundant wildlife in the area. Many thanks to these terrific hosts!
The host greeted us when we arrived and made sure that we were able to get all set up.
The location is a bit from I 84 but the drive takes you past a gorgeous lake that is fun to see. We'll have to stop there next time
It was very nice that we could dump at this property, you just have to maneuver the rig a bit since it's up next to the house.
He invited us to use his wifi which was super useful since our phones didn't have service (AT&T) although the signal was a bit spotty.
It was super nice to have AC with the 30 amp electric.
We enjoyed our restful night and recommend staying here
Larry was very accommodating and gave us privacy. The view from his place is beautiful. Just a heads up, no coverage for Verizon. He was kind enough to share his WiFi, but is was weak and and cut in and out.
This was a wonderful stop with great hosts. All was as it was noted. Thank you
Our hosts were very gracious and communicative. The gravel spot next to their driveway was great and being in a sparsely populated area there was little road noise. We had a few suggested area activities to do and enjoyed spending two days exploring the area. Being unfamiliar with this area, it was a pleasant surprise to find boating, hiking, and great weather for our stay. We visited the dams, launched our kayak and did some walking in the marinas and parks.
Beautiful views, great location close to Boise. Generous considerate host.
Driving to their Host location may be similar to driving to "Heaven on Earth".
And, across the road is even an appropriate message "Jesus Loves You".
The Hosts are both very friendly & Larry assisted me to get parked & hooked up.
Yes! I would enjoy visiting this location & these Hosts again.
Very positive visit, Thank you to the Hosts!
We were greeted by Larry and his wife who kindly offered us drinks. They were friendly and welcoming and we enjoyed chatting with them. The location and weather were perfect! Our family went on a short hike around the area and saw some elk. We would definitely love to stay again when we're visiting the area. Thank you!
I'm sure I already left a reference for Larry. He has a nice off-street location surrounded by beautiful views of the area. It is 21 miles from Boise, so be prepared for groceries and gas before heading up there. Larry was very generous, and he and his new bride invited me in for a meal my first night there while we watched the Boise football team get beat by the Utah team. Larry was very informative about places to visit, hike, etc. You won't regret staying here.
The fall colors were spectacular driving up the canyon. Our hosts greeted us warmly and hooked us up. We spent a delightfully quiet evening.
We have travelled beautiful America over our many years and this spot is one of the best. Wonderful hosts and a beautiful area.
I arrived late, just after sundown, after a grueling day of snow and a breakdown of my tow-dolly. Larry came out to greet me and show me the options for parking my RV. After I parked it, he came out and invited me in to enjoy a hot meal, his new wife, LeeAnne, had cooked up. They had only been married for two weeks and looked very happy together. They also served me red wine and a dessert for a treat. They invited me to stay awhile and watch the Boise-Utah football game. They also have a beautiful rescue German Shepard named Elsa the got along well with Sadie.
The next day I spent seeing all the interesting history of the area. Sadie and I hiked a small segment of the Oregon trail, walked around and visited the Lucky Peak State Park, dam and reservoir area. Quite a lot of history there.
It is quite a distance from Boise and the main thoroughfare, but if you like quiet and solitude, this is a lovely spot to visit.
This is our first BW stay and we are now hooked! Our hosts were gracious and friendly and fun to chat with! The location is amazing. We love to be a little off the beaten path, so this was perfect. We are now definitely looking at becoming hosts ourselves. Thank you so much!
Larry was a wonderful host! Although he was traveling while we were parked at his property, he made sure to stay in touch and was very helpful. He has everything you need to hook up and the property itself is worth boondocking for a night. Gorgeous views and only 30 minutes to the city proper.
Larry is a great host. An overnight is not enough time to talk with Larry. Wish we would have taken more time to locate on a map his favorite local camping spots.
We were honoured to learn we were Larry’s first guests, and feel sure there will be many more: He has a wonderful place, great and beautiful location, and kind services on offer. We even enjoyed wildlife from the small amount of time we were there – lizards, quail, osprey nearby and a beautiful Oriole bird. Meanwhile Larry is a wonderful Boondocker member, giving all the info you want, communicating quickly (and thanks for accepting our short notice request!) and offering a great wealth of ‘tourist info’ for the area too! This is a great jumping off point for many beautiful areas to visit.
