Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My wife and I have been RVs since we have been married. We have graduated from the single cab truck with a shell to a Crew cab with a 12ft cab over and 4 children. We have traveled over most of the country finding places to boondock for most of it.

Over the years we have spent time in the mountain fishing, backpacking, camping(in tents outside the RV), snowmobiling, riding ATV, and 4 wheeling in the Jeep. We also do what we call RVing, traveling in our truck and camper to many of our National Parks, trail systems, history sites, and other POI.

Skills & Expertise to Share

We have added a large enclosed deck on to our home to host parties. We like to find different ways to cook food. In our travels we find meals we like and try to make it then invite friends over to try it. We do a lot of BBQ, Dutch Oven, Smoking, and Grilling.

Paul_and_Marshelle's Pets

We have 2 dogs but don't travel with them.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We like to find Walmart, with 6 of us in a 12 ft camper we need to buy food nearly everyday. We have over the years found some nice city parks and off the main path places to stay.

Would Welcome Back

Nice family that we would welcome back. Good communication. Sorry we didn't have more time to spend with them but it was a busy day with us just returning from a trip.

Always Welcome

This family had a rough start getting to our area. We had a major storm in recent days and the winds where blowing 30-60 mph. They were held up at the Bay Bridge Tunnel for 4 hours. I hope to spend more time with them the next time they come through this area! They are always welcome here! Best Regards, Jhelliott

Loved having them

They stayed a few days coming in the evening and leaving early to explore the national park near my house. My regular spot had already been requested by another Boondocker, and they happily stayed on a flat spot along the driveway. I would happily have this family back again.

Lovely Family

The Waters stayed overnight in our driveway. They were polite, quiet and unobtrusive. We enjoyed meeting them and their two children and would welcome them back again, should they come this way.

Great People, Glad They Stopped By!

We had a great time last night with Paul and family! Sitting around the fire and sharing stories on most every topic. And I think the kids were entertained by Levi. Glad to host you guys, thanks for stoping by and safe travels.

Quick and quiet

They stayed for a quick overnight, great energetic folks, with funny comedic kids. Not afraid of a sprinkler or two. We were glad to have them, did not even notice they were there.

Great Hosts

Nice family, and helped with travel plans. We will stay with them again.


October 2017

Great last-minute stay

We really appreciated Paul and his family graciously taking us in with only a few hours notice. They were very friendly and accommodating!


August 2017

Very Friendly Hosts

Convenient location (for us) as we needed to have our Class B serviced at a local Mercedes-Benz dealer, close to local heritage museum/parks, level parking, and their willingness to play our silly board game was appreciated. We highly recommend this Host when in UT.

Suoer hosts!

Had a great time for one night stay, just worked out perfect. Found PaulWaters to be down to earth, intelligent hard working folks with nice kids and strong work ethic and family values. I'm sure we made some new friends. I hope we get to boondock with them again and hope to host them at our home. Gord and Cherie Anderson.

Very nice and welcoming family

We stayed two nights at Paul's house. They welcomed us with a fire and marshmallow (even in the middle of the week!) and we shared the diner. Quiet place near Antilope Island and a not so far from Salt Lake City. They were so generous of their time, they gave good advises about things to do. Thank you, hope to see you again!

Super Nice Family!

I stayed here at the end of October 2016 and could not have had better hosts in the SLC area. They are well-traveled and great conversationalists. They gave some great advice on things to do while in the area. The whole family is super nice. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Thank you!!!!

We enjoyed our stay in Water's family, very nice. Thanks again for your welcome and the information about the points of interests near your city: very useful!

Loved our stay thank you!!

This family is so so sweet! We are so very grateful they let us stay last minute. They were so nice to have a campfire for us and s'mores for the kids! Thank you Walters family!!


July 2016

Great hosts!!

Great hosts and a warm, receptive family. Highly recommend staying here! They spent a lot of time with us recommending sites to see and shared their knowledge of the area, because they grew up there and know the community and its history. We'd love to visit again when we pass back through the Salt Lake area.

Wonderful Hosts

We stayed here for two nights. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Our hosts were very friendly and accomodating, treating us as one of their family. If you are looking for a comfortable, friendly boondocking experience, we highly recommend Paul and his family.

A beautiful spot and a lovely family

We all enjoyed every moment we stayed here, with the amazing view and friendly pets. We are grateful to the Waters family for their kind hospitality and generosity. It was wonderful to get to know you and your children. Thank you!

Great, quiet site

Stayed here recently overnight, 7/9/16. Owner has large property in open field. Very helpful, very responsive and super friendly. Highly recommend their hospitality.

Wonderful Salt Lake City area stop-over

We really enjoyed our very first boondocking experience staying with this hospitable family. We sat on their breezy deck and shared traveling tips and adventures. They have a wealth of knowledge about the local area and traveling in general. They invited us for dessert of homemade peach cobbler and fresh churned ice cream while we all watched the fireworks. We were delighted to be able to buy some farm fresh eggs from their son. Wonderful first experience!

Nice family, great stop for children

We had a good time meeting and visiting this nice family. We spent a couple hours together talking both evenings; the Salt Lake area has a lot of interesting history. Their teenaged children are well mannered and friendly, our teen kids hung out with them on the swing set and got a tour of the sheep, pigs and chickens. There are various local things to see, we found a great canyon hike nearby that they told us about.

great stay

I can say nothing but good things about this wonderful family. To start off; the contact was easy, fast and useful. The stay was very pleasant, quiet and we would recommend it to others. But the best thing of all was the contact we had with our hosts; such lovely and warm people! Both nights we enjoyed eachothers company by chatting about our family's, travelling and other subjects. Their kids are also pleasant company. We hope to meet again in the future!
