Great Guests!

We felt like friends, from the time they said hello. We found that we had several things in common and plenty to talk about.

We certainly hope that our paths cross again in the future.

Thanks for stopping by, it was our privilege meeting you.

Great people, instant friends

Hope to keep in touch with this couple and visit them when we travel to their location. So easy to host! A down-to-earth couple with whom we shared conversation that, to the unknowing, would have seemed like we had been lifelong friends. Don't miss a chance to meet them.

Best spot yet!

What a pleasure hosts were to visit with, and site was perfect. Could not have ask for more!! FHU and very quite and private.

Gracious hosts

They couldn’t have been any more welcoming. They did everything they could to accommodate all my requests including setting up access for Internet and helping me dump my black water at the last minute before I headed out on my journey. They’re wonderful to sit and visit with as they are full of knowledge and resources to support the RV lifestyle.
Truely delightful people!

Nice Quiet Spot In The Pines

Nice spot very quiet

Nice quiet and friendly

Location is super convenient to explore the area. Had a great time visiting in front of a campfire. Cell access is possible with a booster, or perhaps on Verizon.

Exceptional kindness and a wonderful setting...

We can’t say enough about our host in the pines. We had an exceptional spot with 15 amp which meet our needs for a peaceful stay over. We visited friends in the area while boondocking and return after dark with no problems. Morning time allow us to sit and visit with our host and we shared stories about the different places they had visited and where we were headed. We were just sorry we didn’t catch the second night stay we had to move on and missed what was to be a terrific fish fry. We’ve promised to return with a rain check. Looking forward to our paths crossing again. Safe travels and we wish you health and happiness always.

We enjoyed the convenient location and fun hosts at this location.

We recommend them for sure.

Nice people, nice spot!

Irv's property made for a great boondocking location, with plenty of space and a very convenient "pull-through" style setup. Very nice folks, and even though we were only there for an evening, had a great time and recharged our mental batteries! Had mobile internet/cell service with our WeBoost amplifier turned on. Thanks again.

Great stopover

Although owner was not able to be there, Granddaughter and Partner made sure we were all settled in and had everything we needed, thanks to you all :) We had a nice stop, hopefully Irv will be there if we get the chance to stop again.

What's to say?

We really enjoyed our time here. Just good people, beautiful place, and wonderful sights. As you can tell, I like to make my recommendations short and too the point. Thank you guys for being such great hosts and I hope you all are as lucky as we have been with all the great people we have met on our journey like yourselves.

Spot on!

Although IRV was not in town, he had family greet us and get us set up. He responded quickly to communications. Thanks so much for a great spot right on our route. Hope we can meet one-day.

great host

Irv is a great host - even tho he was out of town - he was not out of touch - his grandson welcomed us and showed the way and Irv made a couple of calls to make sure our stay went well Thank you for that - I would recommend this host and hope to meet up with them some time on the road

Great Host

We stayed with Irv and his wife for a few days. They were great hosts and even provided a personal tour of the area. Great company to sit a chat with.

Great Canoeing Location

A flat shaded spot near several lakes and ponds for canoeing or kayaking. The man, who has his office on this property, gave us many suggestions for places to go. We parked in a private wooded area, and spent 3 days canoeing on Willard Pond, Lake Nubanusit and Spoonwood Lake. All 3 were wonderful, and there are larger ones even closer. Then we came back to sit in chairs amongst the trees. We also walked the trail at nearby Chesterfield Gorge. The only downside was that our hosts were out of town while we were visiting. They were so kind to welcome us anyway, with a sign showing us where to park. Great place to park while you explore the local area's treasures. Thank you so much!

How kind to invite us when you weren't even home!

Another example of how friendly and welcoming "BoondockersWelcome" members are. We were invited to stay over while our hosts were travelling elsewhere. So, we didn't have a chance to meet, but hopefully we will on our next trip through. Thanks again!
