Great Guests

JimFunk & Wife were great fun to talk with. This is the very first quest we have hosted that we actually Boondocked at there place before they came here. Very nice couple.. friendly and enthusiastic. They were respectful about making use of our electric and water. They were almost never here, hopping around and exploring San Diego. Would welcome them back any time or recommend them to any Boondockers location. Happy Travels

Great place!

Despite our late arrival, Jimfunk was more than accommodating. We were welcomed the next morning by him and his two dogs. His place was perfect for our travel plans... and after returning home we made a wonderful pie from the apples he let us pick on his property!! Thanks Jimfunk, and we look forward to hosting you at some point :)

Great short stay!

Jim and his wife are an excellent couple who were kind and generous to us in our short 2 day stay. Love their dogs too. Great location to visit the city from here. Nice quiet rural home. Thank you for sharing it with us!

Highly recommend!

We stayed on jimfunk's property in early September. We parked there for probably longer than they had wanted but they were extremely accommodating about our situation and very kind people. Their property is quiet, serene, and not too far from the Minneapolis/St. Paul area if you like to explore urban life. We have a dog that can sometimes be mean to other dogs but she absolutely loved their dogs and became fast friends with them, especially Regan who loved to come into our RV to take afternoon naps. ;) We would highly recommend staying at their property if you are in the Twin Cities area.

Delightful people, beautiful place.

We all enjoyed our stay with Jimfunk and his family immensely. They allowed our kids to free range all over their beautiful property and spent time talking and joking with them both, which our kids loved. Their dogs were an absolute joy too. They were such generous, genuine, lovely people and we will remember our stay with them always. Thank you again guys. You are welcome in our little part of Australia any time.

Delightful hosts, great place to park

We had a wonderful time staying with jimfunk recently at their home near Minneapolis. They were very generous, outgoing, and accommodating and were great fun to visit with. The site was very accessible, flat, and level. While we did not require it, they had power and water available. Their attractive home is in a quiet, bucolic area outside the city, and we enjoyed the country view and a restful sleep. I would very highly recommend jimfunk as a host if you are ever in the Twin Cities area.

Peaceful Farm Setting

Jim and his wife were not home at the time of my stay, but he was kind enough to accommodate us with short notice. The sight is a farm like setting, but close to stores, restaurants etc... My dogs and cats loved the open space and I loved the quiet. There was room to turn my 36 ft. rig around and a level, gravel surface to park on. Many thanks to the Funk Family

one of the most welcoming, friendliest people I ever met

I stayed here for three nights. When I arrived I got greeted this couple and their 3 friendly, well behaved dogs. There's plenty of space in their backyard next to a barn that hosts their company workshop. Jim right away allowed me to refill my water tank using their house water supply (non-chlorinated ground well-water) and hook up to the barn power supply (110V, probably 20A). The workshop even had an air compressor that'd provide enough pressure for me to check the tires. I planned on visiting the Mall of America and Minneapolis on a Saturday and Jim offered me to borrow their companies truck for driving up to the mall. While it certainly is no problem to go and park at the mall with an RV (north parking lot, next to Ikea, no overnight parking), it of course was much more convenient to take the pickup truck. After exploring the Mall of America (where you could easily spend a whole day or longer), I took the light rail train up to downtown Minneapolis (1.75USD per ticket). It all worked like a charm. So this really is a perfect base camp for visiting Minneapolis. I had an online order to do and Jim allowed me to ship it to his address so I could receive it while I was there. Aside from having had a wonderful boondocking experience, I found new friends here. My home will always be open for them and I'm looking forward to meet Jim and his family again somewhere, sometime.

Welcomed us and our horses

Our scheduled changed several times in the days leading up to our stay with Jim and Christy. Nevertheless they welcomed us and our two horses with open arms. The horses got to enjoy the grass around the garden and we got to enjoy a very level spot for the RV that included electric if we needed it. Thanks Jim and Christy for all the hospitality. When we are back in the area, we would love to do it again.

amazing views, above our expectiations hosts

It was our first experience with boondockers welcome and we were treated like royal guests. We have such a positive experience from everything this amazing couple has to teach and offer.

Giant Sunflowers!

Our gracious hosts provided a wonderful spot to boondock in Prior Lake, about 30min south of Minneapolis - definitely a highlight of our Minnesota trip! The dogs greeted us gleefully every morning and we were lucky to have lots of sunshine during our 3 day stay to recharge the batteries using our solar panels. There was plenty of space for our RV at this quiet location, and power and water are available if you need it, along with the peace and privacy of a rural environs. Christy and Jim - thank you for your hospitality, and the apples and corn...and use of your air compressor! Your sunflowers are magnificent!

Highly recommended

The Funks were a pleasant couple and were accommodating. They didn't bother you and their place was very nice and open. My wife and I would recommend staying here if you needed a place near Minneapolis.

Wonderful host outside of Minneapolis. Highly recommend!

This was our first time using this website and I believe it was also Jim's first time as well. I couldn't be happier with the experience and we highly recommend him. A wonderful host and a great farm to Boondock on as well. We were just passing through so it was hard to plan a day in advance but he was very flexible and allowed us to hook up while they were out. They never bothered us and just stopped by in the morning to say hello and even offered to share a meal with us. Thanks again!
