We owned a campground for several years, and still enjoy meeting and making friends with RVers and campers. Now "retired" we are doing some RVing ourselves. We enjoy getting out into the "woods" to hike, backpack, and winter ski, or back road driving in our Jeep.
After owning a campground/RV park for 25 years we are very familiar with different RV's and repairs. We, personally, have build simple log cabins on our campground and have done several remodels in homes we have owned as our home or rentals. Enjoy back country hiking, and wild herb and flower foraging.
We have two well behaved dogs, one 12 year old Westie and a 3 year old Boarder Collie Terrier mix, referred to as a Idaho Shag. Our Westie has been RVing with us since she was young, going on cross country trips with our 5th Wheel. Our "Shag" has lived with us in our 5th Wheel and did well taking a 3 week cross country RV trip with us last fall. Both dogs are people and other dog friendly.
Still exploring and just starting boondocking. Our general places to boon dock are in national forest areas. Favorites so far are in the Beartooth Wilderness Area and on the north rim of the Grand Canyon National Park,
We grew up and still live in Montana, I grew up near Glacier National Park and hubby grew up north of Yellowstone National Park. We live in the Paradise Valley south of Livingston, Montana north of Yellowstone National Park year round.
Lovely place. Host met us to show us in but they do not live on site so your alone with the dear and the water. Great place to camp if your visiting Yellowstone but want to avoid the crowded camping near the park.
We had a lovely two night stay here. We could have used their hookups, but decided to dry camp since the weather was so nice and we planned to be out of the RV most of the time (we did run our generator for a couple of hours each day with no issue). This was a perfect spot for traveling to Gardiner & Yellowstone. We didn’t get a chance to meet the hosts, but they provided us with a very nice spot, great directions onto their property, & lots of recommendations for our trip into Yellowstone (thank you, thank you!) Highly recommend!!
A great place to stay be sure to contact owner to discuss where to park very nice 1 electric and Sewer hookup
This was a beautiful location and the hosts were most accommodating. We were so blessed to be able to stay here while visiting Yellowstone.
I spent several days BOONDOCKING at this Hosts Location.
They met me when I arrived to make sure I got settled in ok.
Also, I very much enjoyed a lengthy conversation w both of them.
They gave me helpful information about the area.
And I drove the 2-1/2 hours to Helena & visited the Montana Capital Building.
I would definitely enjoy being invited back if I return to this beautiful area.
Thank you both!
We enjoyed our stay here so much that we extended it by one night, even though it lengthened our next days drive by several hours. The beauty of this location, with the river and the mountains as a backdrop is hard to capture in pictures. You just don't get the scope. We had a spectacular thunderstorm roll in on our last afternoon, warm air gave way to 1/2" hail and wonderful booms from the sky. It lasted just 10-15 minutes, then the black clouds dispersed and the brilliant blue skies returned. The entrance to Yellowstone is also nearby, but with the Montana side of the park still closed, that was not much of an option for our stay, otherwise it would be a serious bonus. The owners are super friendly, even checking on us after the thunderstorm had passed. They have great ideas for things to do in the area if you have time. We are so grateful that they open up their property to boondockers. It truly is a gem!
