Member of Harvest Hosts and have enjoyed boondocking at several locations in Oregon and Washington. Our motorhome is set-up with upgraded batteries, solar, and allows us to not need connecting to shore power or utilities. BLM land and open access locations along our travel route (and staying with friends) are more desirable than staying in a RV campground each stop.
Born in Bend, Oregon and grew up in little town of Culver about 40 miles north of Bend on an irrigated farm. Beautiful open view of the Cascade mountains. Can see 7 snow capped peaks out my front-room window.
28 ft. Jayco 26Y, 2018 model. Set up to flat-tow a 2014 Jeep Wrangler 2 door. Do not always bring the Jeep. Self contained with AGM batteries, solar on roof, generator and love to Boondock. No need for hookups. 2 slides, one larger for sofa/dinette, and smaller bedroom slide.
Hosted Jammerdoc, very nice visitors 👍quite and respectful, enjoyed meeting them and are welcomed here again anytime.
They just stayed for a night so we didn't get much time to get to know them but would not hesitate to welcome them back.
Jammerdoc and his son were great guests. They were friendly and quiet. We would welcome them back.
It was terrific meeting Jammerdoc and his son recently as they stayed with us. They were terrific guests and we hope they choose to come back through town again soon. Thank you for staying with us!
Enjoyed meeting our guest and his son. They are welcome to stay again.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful spot with Scout (dog) and myself. It was a perfect of the Sisters from my rig, and I loved our morning walk around your property. Until next time ...
we would definitely stay here again. very helpful hosts.
We technically didnt stay - we got in so late, we didnt want to disturb, but we did see the setup, and it was as wonderful as described
We had such a wonderful stay! Large flat area to park with incredible views of the mountains. Quiet area, convenient location to explore a couple beautiful state parks. The hosts are wonderful and the exact type of people you hope to meet through boondockers welcome. Couldn’t have asked for a better place to park, will definitely be back next time we are on the west coast!
Really nice people, really beautiful place and a buddy for your pup to play with, who could ask for anything more? Really enjoyed my time, morning walks with the hosts were a great way to start the day and the views were amazing. 10/10 would definitely recommend
I initially ask to stay for one night, but my plans got changed on my next stop due to illness. I was graciously welcomed to stay another night. They were helpful in every way. Even offered my a dozen farm fresh eggs to take along, but i already had some. Very nice couple
Staying at J&K's Vista Acres was truly wonderful. Above and beyond. It was my first time using Boondockers, and I had contacted them last minute because I found out the part I needed to fix my furnace was going to be a few days. As inches and inches of snow mounted up, these two kind angels let me plug in at their place and stay warm. I could write on and on, but I will keep it short and sweet: J&K made me want to treat someone the way they treated me and I hope I can pass it forward someday.
If you ever get the pleasure to be out here, you'll never forget the beautiful mountains all around and the peace that this vista/slice of heaven can bring to a boondocker.
Thank you J&K!
J and K are amazing host. Gracious and welcoming to their place.
Amazing views great walking areas. Close to Madras. Not far from Redmond, Bend or Sisters.
Love it here!!!
