What a place!

We stayed only one night at this very tranquil park like setting. wish we could stay much longer! Bernie met us at the driveway, showed us the spot and guided us for the best parking. It was one of the nicest places we have stayed and to have 50 amp, sewer and water available. We will definitely try to get back to Bernie's park!

Lovely Setting, Great Hosts

The site our hosts provided was a private area surrounded by trees and bordered by a creek. Our host recommended what my husband should use for lures/bait to fish with. We had a great time and would love to visit again.

The end to a perfect road trip

It was only fitting that we finish our 2018 road trip around the US with BFISHE. Thank you very much for hosting us and we hope we can visit and stay with you again in 2019 on our next adventure. Best wishes from Phil and Jo.

This was the first time we did the Boondockers Welcome. This is a great location with amazing hosts.

Spectacular spot & wonderful host!

BFISHE was a wonderful host! Led us down to their spot by the creek, helped us get backed in & settled and told us a little about their rig & the property. What an amazing place to stay & such gracious hosts. The spot was private, peaceful and had full hookups. We feel very blessed that they let us share their space for the evening. We would love to return if we're in the area again.

Great Boondocking experience!!

We stayed one night while enroute to Albuquerque. What a great experience! We were welcomed and shown to our spot. Beautiful location by the river and full hook ups! This was better than most RV parks. We would definitely stay again when weโ€™re in the area. Thanks Bernie!!


September 2018


Bernie was the most gracious host! Greeted us upon arrival and showed his wonderful secluded spot for our overnight stay. Not really boondocking. He provides electric, water, even a pump out. Helped us get backed in. Beautiful location beside a creek. Will definitely stop by again if we are in the area. Thanks again! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

More appealing than any RV park

Beautiful rural location only minutes away from big city resources.
Even better, our hosts were genuinely interested in our experiences, and we in theirs, even though quite different. Makes for fun, easy conversation, whether standing in the woods or sharing a nice dinner outing.
Highly recommended.

Peaceful Sleep

Thanks again to the Hosts. The Hosts are delightful and the parking is amazing.

Although it was the end of August, we slept with no AC and the windows open. We slept so well. Birds, crickets, and night time sounds.

A piece of heaven on Earth! A must stay!

This was our first BOONDOCKING experience and we canโ€™t imagine anything Better. Bernie and Rita were the sweetest and went over and above to make sure we had all we needed. Their spot is so beautiful and very private just down hill from their home, facing a creek. They provide all you would need We will look forward to seeing them again.

Loved this spot and the hosts

Right by Union Cemetery, Lafayette, IN

Would love to go by every trip to my folks.

Such a perfect spot for us.


July 2018

Nicest boondocks sure we've seen

Unbelievable site! Totally secluded, right by a nice creek, full hook ups (sewer, water, 20/50 amp electric), freshly mowed lawn, and fireflies! Could not ask for more! Watch out though, Google led us wrong and landed is 30 miles west of where we should have been. The map link on the website is correct, typing it in by hand steered us wrong. This place is definitely worth the stop so do your mapping right.

A piece of heaven on earth!

What a blessing for us to find this place! The owners are the most hospitable people that we have ever met. This was our first Boondocking experience, and I really don't think we will ever be able to find another place as nice as this. This is a beautiful peaceful groomed spot along an awesome river. Hearing the river flowing and the birds singing, was just what the doctor ordered for each of us. Bernie even took the time to help me "the rookie", with my different RV issues. He went above and way beyond in getting his tools to repair an audio problem that I was having. If you have a chance, take the time and stop here. IT IS AMAZING!

A Wonderful Experience

Our Hosts gave us a warm welcome and helped us preview the parking spot. My jaw dropped! It is amazing. Green Grass, Level Gravel Parking with Full Hookups, and creekside with birds, and critters.

After dinner, we sat with the host and shared stories of the road.

What a wonderful experience.


May 2018

A wonderful stay

We had enjoyable time at Bernie and Rita's. Bernie gave us a tour of their beautiful poperty and was a great host.

They even gave us electricity if we needed it. I brewed coffee in the morning which was wonderful. Such a beautiful area in Indiana.

Bill thanks Bernie for the shared conversations and great directions.

Little piece of paradise

Bernie was a wonderful host!
He has put so much work and love into creating the perfect stopover for boondockers!
Buck Creek is so peaceful and quiet!
Thanks so much!

A wonderful start to our time with Boondockers Welcome

Arriving from Oz on our 6 month road trip we had our first experience with Boon-dockers Welcome.Our first night stay with Bernie and Rita Fisher in Lafayette. They were wonderful hosts and made us feel really welcome with the beautiful spot we were situated at and are looking at stopping there again on our return journey in September before we head back to Oz. We highly recommend this stopover, you will not be disappointed.

Very nice quiet spot

Great host ! Very helpful ! Hope to see more of this spot again ,as our stay was only overnight .


September 2017

Class A

We had a great time at BFISHE's property. The accommodations were class A, and absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed the creek, and fished everyday. The host was fantastic as well, and we enjoyed getting to know him better as we had the opportunity to talk. We highly recommend anyone to stay here, you will really enjoy the peace and serenity of this beautiful site.


September 2017

Top notch host and location

BFISHE were great hosts ! We felt welcomed as soon as we arrived and you would be hard pressed to find a better spot for your rv. He even invited me to fish and caught a few channel catfishes for me (!!), which are delicious by the way. He even graciously became our private tour guide to the city of Lafayette and we discovered frozen custard. All in all, they are very generous and interesting people and we absolutely loved our stay at their place. Thanks a lot !

The farm land in this area is beautiful. It is either planted or mowed everything appears landscaped. We where only able to stay one night but hopefully we will be able to pass through the area and drop in again. BFISHE is a great host I did learn the(B)in BFISHE stands for BIG although we didn't get to see one (lol).

Paradise place

We highly recommend this boondocking spot for a perfect stay by a little creek, where you can enjoy all the nice stories and adventures of the owner! :)

We've been treated like family by the host, if you're looking for quality time you have to stop there!!!




July 2017

Amazing stay

Our host greeted us with open arms and lead us to a most captivating scenery. We were able to meet his dogs and we had a very welcoming stay. We would love to stay again next year.


July 2017

5 stars resort

These hosts could not have been nicer and what an absolutely lovely place! He made room for us in the drive since his brother in law was staying in the spot by the river (we thought about pushing him in hehe) but that spot was still wonderful.

HH allow us to meet the most amazing and wonderful people while staying at places campgrounds cannot begin to compare.

I did not get to stay here due to other circumstances, but wanted to say how accommodating and willing this fellow rver was to help me out. Thanks again!


November 2016

Like your own private campground!

I can't say enough how lovely a spot this was and what gracious hosts BFISHE were! The site is right on a river with big gorgeous trees everywhere! I felt like we were at a private campground! We hit a few snags but Bernie helped us out! If you are ever in need of a spot for the night and are near this location, do it!! I hope see them again!



October 2016

Beautiful spot!

Thank you to BFISHE-the kindest of hosts. This spot was a hidden gem for our family. It gave us a safe, peaceful place to sleep and a lovely view to wake up to. Top notch! Thanks again!


September 2016

Great hosts

Very hospitable hosts. Quiet pretty place on river. Highly recommended.


August 2016

Lovely spot

Wonderful hosts with warm friendliness. The site is second to non with quiet water running right outside your door. Beautiful hardwood trees with rustling leaves over shadowing a picnic table and peaceful walking path. Our hosts greeted us with a smile and helpful hints for pulling in. We enjoyed a look at the town and shared common interests. We planned on staying only one night but the quiet, along with our great hosts enticed us to stay a second night, with pleasure! While we have hosted many travelers, this was our first Boondockers stay at someone elses site. We will certainly Boondock again and will return to BFISHE, if they will have us :) I'm sure they would be great guests as well.

5 Star Accommodations!

We have been spoiled by our stay with BFISHE. The spot along the creek is absolutely gorgeous and better than most campgrounds we've come across. The spot is level, paved and there's plenty of well manicured grass for our dog to run around in. Our host was absolutely wonderful. We had some great conversations and wish we could have stayed longer. If you get a chance to stay here, you are in for a special treat. Thank you again BFISHE for having us and making this amazing spot available for others to enjoy.


July 2016

Perfect! Peaceful and Serene....

We spent 1 night at the Bfishe property. It's exactly as noted in their description. So quiet, peaceful and private. Our hosts were very friendly and helped us get hooked up. Water, power and dump are just as you would find it at the best RV parks. Picnic table, fire pit and beautiful view of the creek. We watched several ppl kayaking & canoeing on the creek. Really enjoyed talking with our host and learning about other parks and organizations for RVers. Will definitely boondock here again if in the area. Perfect!


June 2016

Lovely stay

Gracious hosts and a perfect location to rest and recharge. We felt very welcome. This was our first experience staying at a 'boondockerswelcome' host property, and they've set the bar very high for everyone else. Thanks!


May 2016

Great stop

We stayed a few nights along the creek at this property. He has the place set up RIGHT. Sewage, water, and electricity with a level pad and a nice big turn around. The host is super nice. He helped me find a local RV place to replace a leaking water valve. Everything about this stop was nice. Great hosts.


May 2016

Wonderful respite

We recently enjoyed "boondocking with Bernie". Wonderfull accommodations on the creek. We were treated to watching an Eagle soar up stream.

Would highly recommend staying here!

I typed up a recommendation a few weeks ago, but we were having trouble with internet connections, so I will post again. We had a great time staying with Bernie and Rita! They are the nicest folks you would ever want to meet! Bernie has a beautiful set up for camping along the river behind his house. It is like having your own private campground. This was our first boondockers welcome experience and we were extremely happy to have joined this group! We stayed two nights and hiked at Turkey Run State park and then spent some time in Downtown Lafayette. We had a blast and couldn't have asked for better hosts.

Thanks again Bernie and Rita for hosting us. Sorry this is late in coming, but I thought my first post had gone through! We are in Texas now, staying with a friend and finally have decent internet access!

highly recommend!

An amazing location,

Our time at "BFISHE" was short unfortunately. We came in the evening and were gone early in the morning. With that said, I wish we could've stayed here longer.

The site's location (next to a creek) is incredibly beautiful and serene. What an amazing place. I especially enjoyed a quick cup of joe in the morning along the banks of the river / creek watching the birds.

Couldn't have asked for more friendly people to have host us.

Would HIGHLY recommend staying here, and if coming back through again I would definitely like to be a guest again as well. Thank you again for your hospitality!


November 2014

Awesome hosts, great spot. Highly recommended.

I simply can't imagine being made to feel more welcome. I hesitate to say how welcome or share details for fear future guests might expect too much! Your hosts here are very nice folks. The location by the creek is simply wonderful and it's very convenient to Lafayette. I highly recommend this spot.


October 2014

Really Beautiful

What an awesome place to stop. I felt completely welcome and secure. I am a woman traveling alone and that is an added plus. The site was fantastic, very serene. Bernie was so friendly and the 3 Yorkies are so very cute! Thanks Bernie and Rita!!!


June 2014

Oh Yeah.....THE BEST!

Perfect spot, perfect can't ask for better!


November 2013

best spot ever!

This has to be one of the best stops anywhere on this site. Parking spot is totally secluded by a creek with 20/30/50 amp avail, water, dump. The folks were so nice, it was hard to justify leaving.
