Great Couple

I am absolutely loving being a host for Boondockers Welcome because of all the fine travelers that I am getting to meet. Idaho556 tops my list; so friendly and fun to talk with. I enjoyed their stay and they are welcome to return anytime. They were truly an exceptionally nice and fun couple. Safe travels.

Amazing hosts

We had a great time with Darwin and Linda. They welcomed us very friendly and helped us to find a garage to fix our RV. They guided us around their beautiful area thanks again for that. In the evening we met their family and have been invited for their family dinner. Thanks again for giving Turner such a great time at your place.

If you visit Germany just let us know we always have a place for you to stay !

Oasis from the heat

We had a wonderful stay. Our hosts were very inviting and shared a game of Yahtzee with us. They provided all services offered and more. True honest American hospitality.
Thanks you so much for having us.


July 2018

Great Location

Our host helped us get set up and made recommendations of what to see. We thoroughly enjoyed Snake River Canyon, Shoshone Falls, and Ritter Island. The site was great and even had a beautiful sunset. Also was fascinated watching a large bird sitting on an electric pole. Hope we can get back here to spend time with our hosts.

Absolutely Fantastic!

The hosts are absolutely delightful. We very much enjoyed staying with them and getting to know them. They have a large space with full hookups IF needed. These hosts went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and to help us enjoy and learn about their area.
We highly recommend this Boondockers Welcome host! We can't wait to see them again!
Thank you so much!

What a wonderful experience!

What a WONDERFUL visit we had with Idaho556. We arrived about 3PM and they were not yet home but had given us specific directions so we setup and got settled in. A short time later, they got home and we had a quick conversation getting to know each other.

We were offered a chance to ride out to see Shoshone Falls and accepted with pleasure. My goodness, if you ever have the opportunity to see these falls, do not miss it, they're BEAUTIFUL and we are very grateful for our hosts going above and beyond. They've given us something to strive for.

Thanks for the great visit!

Great Stay

We had a wonderful one night stay with this host. The spot was easily accessible and had all the amenties we could ever want. A nice evening was spent with our host talking and having a glass of wine. We highly recommend this host.


April 2018

Above and beyond

We had a wonderful stay even though it was only one night. The host went above and beyond with their hospitality. Will definitely stay here again the next time I’m in Idaho.

Peacefull Farm by the Falls

If you stay with Idaho556, it is glamorous camping when it comes to boon docking. It was an extremely easy in and out with full hookups. Idaho556 is an ideal location for Shoshone Falls and they shared their information and tools to get us unhooked and site seeing in a jiffy. Very nice people with a very quiet location close to shopping and site seeing.

Idaho Perfection

What a blessing to spend our first ever Boondocker experience with Idaho556!
Minutes after our request we received a
“Sure! Come on in!” Lovely, quiet, country setting with gracious hosts! Thanks so much!


January 2018

A lovely night in Idaho

This was a great place to spend the night in our travels. We arrived late, but were able to say hello in the morning, before pulling back onto the road. The farm was peaceful and quiet. Being the Christmas season, we were delighted to see a Nativity and beautiful lights on our arrival.

Great spot and great host

Only one turn from the Interstate with just a short 3 mile drive and voila... a pull thru site with full hookups in a lovely pastoral setting. One of the best Boondockerswelcome sites we've come across, and Darwin was every bit as helpful. THANK YOU from Shelley & Ralph


September 2017

Just amazing...

What an amazing couple! They graciously welcomed us and were so kind and hospitable. They had great advice on some of the places we plan to visit soon! Beautiful and quite location. We would definitely stay again if we are ever in the area.

Gracious Hosts

What a blessing it was for our family to be hosted by Idaho556! Besides the AMAZING set up on site, we felt safe AND rested well on their property. They were very understanding when we arrived later than planned but still graciously met us when we did and even helped us get settled. Thankful to them for allowing us to stay AND were a great first Boondockers Welcome experience for us!


July 2017

Serene and friendly

I could go on and on about how great their space is and how comfortable and safe I felt being there. Very accommodating, great recommendations on places to see in the area and PERFECT site! Giant hugs to you both and Thank you from the puppy and I.


July 2017

Awesome hosts

We got in late than planned but our hosts had a nice set up already waiting. We awoke to the pleasant sound of cows lowing. We appreciated the quick response and wonderful recommendations for stopping at Crater of the Moon National Monument and other places in and around Yellowstone. Highly recommend!


June 2017

Amazing welcome and great location

We had an amazing time here. And such a warm welcome! We had requested just one night but were encouraged to stay another to see all the beautiful spots here on the Snake River. Twin Falls has so much to see and do. We even managed to catch some base jumpers in action. But, by far, the best part was meeting such wonderful people - our hosts. Thank you so very much!

Highly recommendedi

We have just spent the night with Boondockers Welcome Idaho556. The location in the Idaho countryside is convenient to the interstate and easy to get to with no problem. In addition, the hookups were easily accessible for parking our RV.

We really liked the farm setting. Several bird species and you wake up in the morning to the songs and chirping. We slept very well with the windows open.

Our communication via email was answered promptly, and Idaho556 was understanding when we changed our arrival date, We enjoyed sharing tales of rv travels, and appreciated the advice given to us for the best roads on our northward journey.

We would highly recommend Idaho556 if you are in this area of the country.

Great hosts with an awesome location

Hosts are very generous, offering 30 amp, water, and sewer at a perfect, private, level, gravel parking location. We had a great time with our hosts, enjoyed the RV and travel conversation. We went to the recommended Shoshone Falls. The falls were amazing as the water flow was way up and the park is a great place to spend a few hours relaxing and enjoying the area.

We sincerely hope to meet up with the hosts again down the road. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.

Repeat visit.

April 14 2017.

Well exactly 5 months after our first stay, we are on our way home from our big tour of the USA southwest.
I called up to say hello to our host,just as we where passing thru Twin Falls, and Idaho556 was so kind to invite us to stay overnight again at his home. This is such a wonderful spot and we really wanted to visit with him again.
We got a chance to visit and I'm feeling very grateful. He and his family are welcome to boondock with us or stay over in my home any time if my RV parking is full.
I would recommend this boondock highly.


April 2017

Outstanding farmland enviornment

We couldn't have asked for a nicer spot to overnight. The view was wonderful & we had a full hookup.
Our host was welcoming & accommodating. We wish that we had a chance to visit longer but we were in a bit of a hurry to get home. This is a great host.

Beautiful farmland location with great host

What a pleasant surprise! Idaho556 is such a nice person to get to know. A true country gentleman. The RV site is spacious and with full hook up available, it is so convenient. The grounds are beautiful, we enjoyed stunning sunsets and a lush green lawn in November! Jerome city shopping is only 3 miles away, and we stocked up at Walmart. He helped us locate the top sights to see in the area. Twin falls is only 9 miles away and we saw base jumping off the Perrine bridge which crosses the majestic Snake River Canyon. We went to see Shoshone Falls, and climbed to the top of Evel Knievel's launch ramp where he attempted to jump the Snake River Canyon. On September 8, 1974, with much media fanfare, daredevil Evel Knievel tried and failed to leap the mile-wide chasm of the Snake River Canyon on his specially engineered rocket motorcycle. His drogue parachute malfunctioned and opened on take-off.
There is so much more to see we want to return. We hope Idaho556 will come and stay with us when he travels thru BC again.

Go out of your way to visit

What a beautiful place to rest for a night. Peaceful, quiet and the hosts are generous and super accomodating. They even let us dump there and we had to borrow a piece of hose to do it. Thank you!
