My hubby, Jim, and I have been RVing for over 20 years. We’ve had van campers, pop-ups, Fifth wheels, motorhomes, and pull trailers. Recently, we sold our 30’ Newmar BayStar and are back to traveling with an 18’ Creekside TT. We love traveling and so do our 2 kitties. The past 4 years, we’ve wintered in Yuma and managed an RV park there.
We lived in Alaska for 8 years, and drove the AK Highway a number of times. We can possibly give you some pointers about that. Jim has taken an RV repair course and is also a certified RV inspector. Cindy is a retired RN and former teacher.
We have 2 fluffy fur babies who travel everywhere with us. Buddy is a large, sweet ginger and white boy and Abby is a small, mostly white dilute calico. They’re, fortunately, good travelers!
Seeley Lake, MT
We tow a 20 foot Creekside TT with our Ford - 150.
We had the best time in Seeley Lake staying with these generous hosts! We liked them so well we’ve been there twice and will be returning soon. Very convenient parking area within walking distance to town and ice cream.
Every thing went well. Owner was not there but they had someone who was being the host and he was very helpful and gracious.
We appreciated the nice area and accommodations for our stay. Our hosts were gracious and the location was perfect in the small town of Seeley Lake. We would most certainly boondock there again.
Nestled in the tall pines beside a lovely lake, Seeley Lake is a small community with big views. Our hosts graciously allowed us to stay hitched for the overnight stay, even though our rig filled up their entire driveway! The adjacent road had constant traffic during the day, but it was quiet at night. We appreciated having electricity while there and water to fill our tank. It was nice visiting with the friendly hosts about their travels and experiences. We look forward to returning to this area someday for a longer stay.
Travelcat greeted us when we pulled up, helped us get settled, then gave us some just-out-of-the-oven-still-hot-banana bread! I don't know what could top that. A great stay in a very nice little town. Thanks Travelcat!
What a restful overnight stay we had at "Dreamin' in Seeley Lake"! "Travelcat", your generous hospitality only added to the wonderful scenery and uniqueness of Seeley Lake and the larger Swan Valley (e.g., Salmon Lake). So grateful for the power plug-in, fresh water refill, and helpful recommendations about RVing from your years of experience. Safe travels to you, and our thanks again for all!
TravelCat was a gracious host. Nice quiet place, easy in, easy out.
Beautiful Area! Helpful, welcoming and fun hosts!
Would definitely stay there again and would love to meet up with Them on our travels!
Nice hosts. Enjoyed visiting with them. Gave us ideas of places to see. Lots of lakes in the area. We drove several mountain roads in our jeep.
Requested a 2 night stay for same night. Accepted quickly by the hosts.
Their cabin was in a very convenient location right in town - very close to the lake. Plenty of space for our 38' Class A & car. Hosts were extremely friendly and offered helpful advice about the area. We had a great stay - only wish that we had more time to stay & chat with the hosts to get to know them better!
Highly recommended - thanks TravelCat !!
Great location near Seeley Lake. Our daughter especially liked the ice cream shop around the corner. Unfortunately the hosts were away when we stayed so we didn't get to meet them but the gentleman that was staying on-site was very helpful and friendly. The hookups were much appreciated.
Very nice place that comes with wildlife. We saw deer outside our front door. Easy in and out. Close to ice cream shop. Walking distance to lot’s of Small businesses
It was so nice to be able to boondock at “Dreamin’ in Seeley Lake”. The hosts were out of town so it was great that they still provided a reservation with the help of their on-site friend who was very welcoming and helpful. Great location!
The Lake was crowded so I wish I had planned my visit mid week but the boondock setup was easy and convenient.
While we didn't get to meet our hosts in person, we spent a very nice afternoon and night at their location. They had someone there to meet us and help with our set up, including power which was nice in the unseasonable heat. We enjoyed a milk shake at a local ice cream shop and the resident deer were fun to watch. Recommended.
What a friendly little place. Tucked my rig right into a nice level spot. Lots of privacy even with three other Boondockers there.
Super fast response time too!
Thanks for a wonderful stay. Such a nice place and the lake was so fun..
Thanks again! It was great to chat- I’m glad to have learned a few critical RV things and Your place was an Awesome Experience! We will be back, no doubt about it!
Location was wonderful and our Hosts were even better!
Pleasant couple. Very accomodating. Great location, just around the corner from the downtown area and Ice Cream!
Easy camping. The hosts were welcoming and directed me to a nearby dump station with potable water. The place is very easy to find and access and is moments away from forest or town, noisy in the day but quiet at night.
We enjoyed our stay. The owners were not at home,but we were given east to follow instructions set-up and then walk around. Cute town. I love Boondockers welcome! Best discovery ever!
Travelcat was quick to reply, with great directions, and the spot was just what I needed. Plenty of space, with about a half dozen deer to welcome me. Would definetly recommend, and hope to stay here again.
Our plans changed quite a few times after we ended up spendong much more time in the badlands and yellowstone than expected.
We didnt actually stay the night at their place because we ended up so far behind schedule. But they were very quick to respond to our requests and follow ups and constant changing dates. and were even okay with us showing up when they were out of town. Look forward to meeting then when we get to arizona
Didn't get to meet the hosts but we were greeted by a friend of theirs that showed us where to park. There was an electric hookup but we didn't use it. We had a peaceful stay after visiting from Yellowstone on our way to Glacier. Cute little town!
Stayed 2 nights here to rest and recover from our adventures in Glacier NP. Easy access location just off the main road in a cute little lake town. We parked under a big tree and hosts offered us power hookups. Felt very comfortable and safe. There is also a free dump station just down the road. Full bars of Verizon LTE too! Thanks for the stay!
Wonderful hosts! Great conversation around the campfire! I was lucky to be visiting when they fired up the smoker and we shared our ribs and ribs recipes. I rode my bike around the lake - beautiful scenery. Just 7 miles away is the trailhead for a 1-1.5 hour (one way) hike to Morrell Falls - worth the time if you hike. Deer came right up to my window and looked in! I would definitely visit here again.
Unfortunately Travelcat and her cats were away, so we didn't get to meet them. We did get greeted by some very friendly deer in her front garden though!
The spot is within walking distance of the shops and close to the lake. We watched a great band play at the local bar - as UK travellers it was great to get a taste of small town Montana, so thank you Travelcat for hosting us.
Such a cute town on a beautiful lake. It’s so nice to be able to walk all over town and such nice people here.
Great place to stay and explore the area for a couple days. The hosts were courteous and polite, the town was quaint, and there is a power hook up and easy access to water. Thanks for letting me and my pup stay!
If you like to view deer this is the place to stay. Deer where 10 feet from our trailer, just grazing away. Our hosts were as helpful and friendly as you could wish for. Seeley Lake is a nice little town with a few local resuraunts. We just relaxed, watched deer and viewied the mountains for a few days before heading up to Glacier NP. Many hiking trails, Holland Lake Falls is a nice easy 3 mile roundtrip hike with magnificant views.
Thanks again to our great hosts
Travelcat were great hosts. They were lovely to chat with and have great food suggestions around town. Never had deer in my “front yard” before in our travels so that was a bonus we had the evening we were there! It’s a great little town to stop in and the cutest home to stay at. Thanks again!
I had a lovely quiet night at Travelcat's location and continued my journey to Glacier National Park well rested! Thank you so much!
Thanks to C & J for their hospitality. We checked out the ice cream stand just around the corner. It was the ideal location between our visits to Yellowstone NP and Glacier NP.
Great place to stay! Fun to watch the deer outside your door. Will stay here again
Travelcat greeted us warmly when we arrived. Their location was the perfect launching point for our visit to Glacier Nat'l Park. Seeley Lake is a very quiet, comfortable town and we loved being so close to the vast forests in NW Montana. We had daily visits from a mother doe and a young buck. We also spotted a camera-shy fawn with her yesterday, just outside our door. There is so much natural beauty in the area, we are sure to return to visit Travelcat!
Nice stay. Good hosts and deer visiting the RV. Nice little town near the lake. Thumbs up!
We were working our way north and this was a great spot to stop for the night.
So nice and fun to watch the pet deer in velvet, wish we could have met our host but great ful for the hospitality.
We extended our stay at Dreamin’ and I believe I left a review already, saying it was wonderful, but in case I didn’t, Dreamin’s spot puts you right in Seeley Lake, perfectly set for all the action there, but still has the feeling of being secluded from the bustle of it all. They graciously allowed us to stay in their absence.
Thanks again J&C.
Our hosts were kind enough to let us stay in their absence, so we didn’t get to meet them😏, although they were quick to respond to all queries. We enjoyed Seeley Lake from this perfect central spot, with level ground and nice shade. Thank you ‘Dreamin!
Ideal location for sightseeing yet right in town. Hosts were away and generous to let us stay in their absence. Deer came right up near the camper. Enjoyed the day trip to Glacier national park with it's gorgeous views, stopping to eat fabulous breakfast Hungry Bear restaurant 30 minutes north.
Our Seely Lake hosts were amazing and welcoming. We enjoyed meeting and getting to know them! And the house is right next to an ice cream parlor - yumm!
Wonderful! They were very friendly but not overbearing. They are the kind of couple that you hope to run into on the road again someday. Their property is right next to the town so it's easily walkable and a short drive to Lake access.
Great hosts, we left there thinking that we should have stayed longer. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to other people
This was our first time using Boondockers Welcome and it was such a wonderful experience! Jim and Cindy were so welcoming and felt like instant family! Cindy makes 'deer cookies' and we had the unexpected treat of watching several deer prance around (including the babies) enjoying her cookies. Jim and Cindy have years of experience of RV ownership and travel and are a wealth of information! The site is within walking distance of all kinds of shops/restaurants yet it was quiet. The space was level and easy to get into. Thanks for such a wonderful 1st time experience with Boondockers Welcome! Hope to see you on the road :) Tom & Cheri www.enjoythejourney.life
We had a lovely time boondocking on Jim and Cindy's property. The children loved the cats and the ice cream within walking distance. We spent our time at the lake relaxing while the children played and splashed. It was the perfect break after our busy days in Yellowstone.
Convenient locatiin at the lovely Seeley lake. The hosts (and the cats😎 )are welcoming and very nice. Great spot!
Travelcat's location is easy to find, level parking and convenient to the small town of Seeley Lake. Enjoyed talking with host and sharing stories of all their travels. The area is beautiful with lots of outdoor activities located near by. Hope to be able to come visit again.
Jim and Cindy aren't always home - they travel a lot - so I was fortunate to get there when they were there. Delightful hosts with plenty of space - within walking distance of ice cream! Who could ask for more?
We had reservations at a campground in Seeley Lake but I was concerned that we would not fit with our 45ft motorhome. I contacted Travel Care to ask about staying at their site and she was very gracious and agreed we could stay there if the campground did not work out. She got back to me immediately every time we were in touch. Did not end up staying at her site but greatly appreciate her flexibility and offer of a space if we needed it.
Jim and Cindy were great! I loved my little secluded spot beside the house tucked in next to a little shed. My windshield was shattered by flying truck debris on my way to their place in Seeley Lake, I was able to find a replacement in Missoula and had to stay for a couple of extra days for my appointment. Jim and Cindy went out of their way to make sure all was well and I was able to get my windshield fixed before moving on.
They are great people!!!
What a wonderful stop on our trip. Jim and Cindy are such nice people and very accommodating. We enjoyed good conversations and got some good ideas from them on future travels.
Their site is level, no work needed! Deer roaming right up to the camper. Very short walk for dinner.
Highly recommend Dreaming at Seeley Lake!
Travelcat and her husband are super friendly & accommodating! Even though they were traveling themselves, they gave us permission to boondock in their driveway on our way up to Glacier NP. The location is easily accessible off the main road and close to some shops and restaurants. We went on a walk for ice cream and when we returned, so had they! It was so great to meet them and chat about their trip and other experiences on the road. They were so kind to us and our children!
This was our first experience with Boondockers Welcome, and it was a great one!! :)
We enjoyed a relaxing overnight stay in Seeley Lake, even thought our hosts were traveling too. So appreciate that they allowed us to boondock in such a pleasant place.
Cindy was gone on vacation, but she kindly allowed us to park our rig at her place anyway. Seeley Lake is a super busy little town this time of year, but it's still fairly quiet during the day and very quiet at night, so you do get your rest :) Thanks, Cindy and safe travels to you!
Though Travelcat was away on holiday to the great north, she was nice enough to allow us to stay on her property for 3 nights on our way to Glacier NP. The town is about an hour and change from Missoula where we went one day to resupply. Grant ghost town and multiple lakes are very close. I recommend the canoe trail right in town. Walking distance to ice cream which is super important. Hopefully next time we are in the area we can meet our hosts. Thanks again.
I really appreciated the spot because it gave me the perfect place to jump off from! I was able to get the lay of the land and pick the spot that was right for me! It's close into the village. But still really beautiful! I feel so badly for the people in places where there are forest fires. There was plenty to see here in spite of the smoke and the locals were so nice despite the stress they were under.
Travelcat was the perfect host. They made us Australians feel right at home. We enjoyed the shared experiences. The 100 feet walking distance to town was really very central. Pity about the smoke and fires. We look forward to reciprocating when you come to Australia
Cheers John and Judy
My husband, dog and I had a wonderful stay here in Seeley Lake. Our hosts welcomed us to stay for two nights and offered both water and electric hookups! They were incredibly friendly and accommodating and fun to chat with about travels and RV-life. Sadly the Rice Ridge wildfire is going strong just outside of town until perhaps October 2017, which makes for a smoky stay, but it really depends on which direction the wind is blowing. There's a great little ice cream and burger spot just behind the house, and a laundromat with hot showers across the street for $1.50! Seeley Lake is just across the street, although it was closed for the fire airplanes to scoop water. We also saw deer mill about the yard in the evenings by our camper, and our hosts have adorable cats :) We would definitely stay here again if our travels bring us back near Missoula!
Travelcat was very accommodating when my family and I were planning what to do and when to come and even graciously handled a last-minute (2 days prior) change to our plans.
They were super-nice, with local recommendations and a great spot with electricity.
Couldn't have asked for a better experience in their neck of the woods.
We want to thank Travelcat for being our host this week. The site was as described and very level I might add and easy to park in. Travelcat was very prompt with correspondence. I can recommend this host without hesitation. Once again, THANK YOU, Travelcat.
Travelcat was away when we visited, but they graciously allowed us to park on their site. Pity we didn't meet up, but did meet the friendly neighbours, and enjoyed the local icecream place!
Travelcat was nice enough to let us stay at her place even though she was on her own trip! We were greeted by a bunch of deer wandering the streets in town! Very cool. It was a lovely stop on our way to Glacier national park. Thanks so much for letting us stay at your place!
We had a great experience staying with Travelcat. They are a wonderful couple that were extremely accommodating. They are a day drive away from Glacier National Park which we absolutely recommend going to. Jim was even nice enough to try to fix our refrigerator for us, which unfortunately has not been working properly. It was a pleasure getting to know the two of them and touring the area. If we are ever back in the area, we would absolutely visit or stay with them again.
Travelcat's place was wonderful! Near the woods and lake in a peaceful setting. I really enjoyed meeting her and her beautiful kitties. She's such a nice lady! This was my very first Boondocking experience and it was certainly a great way to start!!
I dare you to try and find nicer people on the planet! Cindy and Jim are simply incredible hosts in a great location. Spent the night here on the way to Glacier National Park and had such a wonderful time! There are cute little shops and restaurants just blocks away along with delicious soft-serve ice cream just around the corner. Don't miss an opportunity to meet them should you get their way! Oh, and don't forget the kitties! Thank you Jim and Cindy!
My friends are staying there. I would really appreciate it if you could let me stay for 1 night.
I had arranged to stay and then Decided to stay in glacier national Park a few more days Therefore I canceled I canceled. Very polite and gracious thank you
