We are a retired couple who have enjoyed camping adventures for 40+ years. We started out in Tents, moved on to a Pop-Up and then Travel Trailers. We now have a Motor Home and our adventure to travel the US begins in the summer of 2021. We have 5 grandchildren we absolutely adore who love to camp with Gunka and Gramma.

Great folks, Lovely town.

K and D were lovely to us. Contacted them last minute, and 20 minutes later, we were chatting in their yard. The were so helpful and kind and eager to help in any way. Felt so well taken care of. Beautiful yard. You'll be glad you stayed with K and D. Thanks so much for all your tips and help!

Convenient Stay

The hosts were very friendly and laid back. They even threw the ball for my dog and brought him out some water! This location is conveniently located right off the highway and parking on the property was easy with no major obstacles. I recommend an overnight stop here if you want a peaceful night of sleep!

Wonderful Hosts

We loved our time with these hosts! We were even greeted with a plate of freshly baked cookies; our kids were in Heaven!! We were easily able to maneuver our 41ft fifth wheel into place. We will definitely revisit if in the area again! Thank you so much for accommodating us!

Steller Hosts

We were honored to be the first guests of Retired Roly-Polys.
Set up was real smooth to go anywhere in their large back yard
and they have all the amenities.

It was a pleasure to share conversation with such fine people on
RVing and boondocking as well as all manner of other topics.
We were there for only one night but that's all it took to make
new friends.. I wish them well in their travels..
