We’ve been married 30 years and have 5 grown kids . We’re native to this area and love the idea of sharing our quite piece of nature with fellow Boondockers.
My wife is a Special Ed teacher. I own an HVAC company. We have done any and everything from restoring a 130 year old home , remodeling several homes and building our current home . Recently we have turned an old ambulance in our camper .
We have 3 dogs and 2 cats . We may travel with a couple of dogs not the cats .
The only boondooking we’ve done so far is in years past with our kids in Walmart parking lots , in a bumper pull camper usually in route to a destination . Once in a church parking lot trying to sleep in an unconverted passenger van .
Carthage , Missouri
Our truck is an International medium duty ambulance we’ve converted to a sweet camper, we do have a small deck that we haul 2 new Yamaha Tw200’s on
This was a beautiful site in a green field with large shady trees. We were greeted at arrival and given many parking options.
Due to a personal emergency, we were only able to stay one night. So we were unable to meet our hosts. But we thank them for a nice stay.
Wow! This was just amazing, all around!! The host was so nice- greeted us warmly. Offered “wherever” to park, and made a couple of suggestions. A true hidden gem! Would come again to stay here and visit this lovely town. Thanks so much!!!!
This was my first Boondockers Welcome stop and it was a beautiful overnighter! Once I turned into the drive, drove past the old truck (which is very cool) and the building on the right the whole area opened up into a beautiful green tree covered park like area. I could pick any area I wanted so opted for a shady spot and settled in. My dog was able to wander while we hiked on the property. I heard an owl in the evening and saw a deer in the early morning. This was a GREAT place to unwind after a long day driving. Thank you for sharing your place with me!
Great level accommodating field of green and was allowed to walk the ground like the cable bridge across the creek we’ll be back again for sure
We left Idle Wild this morning with a full cup and a heart full of gratitude! We were wondering if the property could be any more beautiful and we were proven wrong as soon as we met our hosts. They were friendly, hospitable, and easy to talk to! They were so accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. We are so humbled by their good hearts. The area we parked in was gorgeous and full of lush greenery and plenty of space to run and play for our dogs. We were given permission to walk around the property and take in the beautiful scenery. We were so pleasantly surprised by this magical place after driving through Carthage! Who would have thought that such a gem would be testing just inside the city limits. Worth stopping by for sure!
Thank you for being such kind and generous hosts! We hope to meet more people like you and stay in similar beautiful places! ❤️
