Perfect stop

Convenient stop traveling home from CO. Easy to find and setup with lovely plains view of pink sunrise. Host graciously let us stay while they were out of town and stayed in touch if we needed anything. Highly recommend.

Perfect place for a nights stay

Nice rest overnight, fast response & great communication with a sense of humor.
We requested a stay with a short notice and early afternoon. We were ready for a rest Bc we left home very early that morning.
Easy to get to, open space no trees to worry about.
We really appreciated it.
Thanks for the wooden nickel!😊

Great Stay

A very friendly couple. He met us at the site and helped us park. We had a quiet restful night. We would be happy to host them at our site in CO


September 2021

Friendly hosts with a great sunset vista

We had a great stop over stay. Nice to meet fellow RVs. Their place is very easy to get to and to get into. Level and we were able to use the one 50A service for our all electric Tiffin.

just in time

it's a good thing that I had this reservation bc I had to really hunker down and get off the road due to very high winds! the hosts were friendly and helpful and once I could come out of my rig (hot and windy) we chatted and they gave me a tour of their class A. their driveway was level and spacious and was across the road from huge farmed lands

Enjoyable stay

I enjoyed the sunset and sunrise during my visit. Also good conversation with the host on their front deck. A nice visit.

Peaceful hilltop site

I'm very happy to have had the chance to stay at this lovely place. The Host was very accommodating and very helpful. The cat was the perfect little hostess greeting me when I arrived and being my companion for my stay. I would recommend this place for anyone going through this part of Kansas.

Great stay

We had a great time! Easy to find. Wonderful, friendly host. Sweet kitty cat.


September 2021

Easy off and on highway

Large level space for parking. Very quiet even though it's right off of highway 50. Didn't get to meet the owner but we really enjoyed the very friendly kitty!!

On the plains

The setting was beautiful and accommodations were great. SWKSBOONDOCKER was a great host. Would definitely stay there again.


August 2021

Amazing place and even better host.

Had a great stay at this place with wide open views. Fantastic conversations and my boy had a great time playing with the kittens.


August 2021

Very helpful

Great open area with extremely convenient access off 50. The helpful host made for a quick setup. Definitely deserves 5 stars.

The spot is the perfect stop-over spot!!

Thank you for a comfortable stay!

Friendly Host

As others have said it can't get any easier, right off the highway. Friendly and gracious hosts.

Great Kansas Stop

Enjoyed our stay. Welcoming host. Great view. Plenty of room to park larger units. Enjoyed a quiet evening walk up the gravel road past the hosts home.

Oasis in KS!

Very few BW hosts west of Wichita along Hwy 50 and it's a good one. Good view of farm land from the site and level where we parked next to the flag pole. Nice folks and we even got to pet a new born kitten. Got good OTA TV reception from the east. Cell coverage is good too.

Nice View, Nice People

We had a nice overnight stay and discussion about RV life. Our parking spot looked out over huge wheat fields. In and out was easy, as was arranging for electricity.

High above the prairie

Our stay was exactly as described by the host. His location was directly off the main road and up a small incline to his home. We had plenty of parking area with a beautiful view down into the Prairie. Our hosts were very gracious and we would stay there again. 

And I don’t want to forget to acknowledge the host cat, Cali, short for calico, who greeted us kindly, too.

Nice couple!

Wide open spaces doesn’t do it justice

A good stay

A very nice quiet, easy access stay

Flexible, Level parking, and friendly

Wide open spaces is accurate.

Great experience!

We had a great first experience with Boondockers Welcome. Host was very nice and helpful. After getting set up, we enjoyed some drinks and conversation on their patio. We would definitely recommend this host!!

Great Stay

We were very graciously greeted by our hosts. After settling in, they invited us to join them on their back patio for a visit and beverage. We particularly enjoyed the informative conversation about the local area and farming in western Kansas. Easy access, level parking and excellent cell service. We would definitely stay again and highly recommend.

A wonderful stop-over.

We were going to be passing through the area and Wide Open Spaces was a perfect stop for us. We were able to visit with the host for a little bit, and enjoyed our stay in their yard/field. We would certainly contact them again if we were in the area. We were fortunate enough to be their first guest.
