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.

Perfectly situated, fantastic amenities

Loved this spot on a farm, so close to the Snake River and all the fun and beauty that provides. Full hook ups were fantastic, and hosts gave great suggestions for what to see and do. Very hospitable!


July 2021

Great stay! Convenient location and all the amenities.

Really enjoyed our stay the farm. Darwin was a super friendly host and he has a beautiful farm to make for a perfect home base for your stay in the area.


June 2021

No accident that Idaho556 is Ultra Host!

Yes, Idaho556 is an awesome location and the BW spot has all the amenities, BUT the Hosts are the Greatest! Perfect balance of helpful and friendly. We visited the area just one day and want to return. Gave great advice as to where to visit. We thank them for the amenities and believe the $5 requested is beyond fair. Hope they will take us up to visit us in FL!!!


June 2021

Wonderful !

Couldn’t have been easier to find. Got set up in amazing location on the beautiful property. Full hookups! Had a really nice social hour with great hosts. Thank you!
Definitely will stay again when in the area.


June 2021

Easy access, large parking area!

Level gravel lot with full hookup. We had a really nice visit with the host. He was very helpful and informative with suggestions on our next leg of our trip....which we used. We even got to feed the goats. 😃 We felt very safe and comfortable. Was a pleasure staying.


June 2021

Awesome Hosts!

We greatly enjoyed the generous hospitality & visit with Idaho556! The location was very easy to access and having a clean parking area with full hookups was a definite plus. Thanks to our hosts, we had a wonderful time seeing much of the beauty in the Jerome/Twin Falls area which we will never forget. Thank you & happy travels for you too!


June 2021

Great Stay!

It was so great staying here - beautiful property, cute baby sheep, and welcoming hosts. Also appreciated the amenities. Would definitely stay here again!


June 2021

Beautiful and peaceful stay!

The hosts have a beautiful and peaceful property. Our whole family loved staying here and our kids don’t want to leave. They have absolutely loved being able to feed the goats and sheep. Thank you for having us! We hope to meet again down the road!


June 2021

Wonderful stay!

We spent two nights at Idaho556 and loved it! The hosts were friendly, the goats and sheep were adorable and the hookups were especially nice since it was hot, hot, hot. Thanks again!


June 2021


What a marvelous couple and a great place to stay! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with them! What a delightful place to stay!


May 2021

Great place to stay!

Nice quiet place in the country to stay. Not far off the interstate. Our children enjoyed watching and putting their goats.


May 2021

Awesome location and host

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Jerome exploring the area. So nice to have a great place to boondock with such friendly hosts.


May 2021

Beautiful location and wonderful hosts

We had a wonderful time at Idaho 556. My family stayed overnight. It's a beautiful location on a beautiful farm with amazing hosts. My kids loved helping out with the farm animals. We would definitely love to stay again!


May 2021


This was our first Boondocker Welcome stay, and couldn't have been better! A warm welcome, beautiful location, friendly goats and lulled to sleep by the sound of frogs. Thank you, it was much appreciated and very kind to open their land to hosting!


May 2021

Absolutely Fantastic!!!

The hosts are absolutely wonderful. We very much enjoyed our stay and getting to know them. They have a large space with full hookups. They went above and beyond to making us feel welcome and recommending things to do
We highly recommend this Boondockers Welcome location! We look forward to seeing them again!
Thank you very much!


May 2021

Beautiful property!

A welcome by the goats was such a treat! The location is perfect, the spot is level and the hosts are wonderful! We couldn't ask for a better site. Thank you!!!


May 2021

Wonderful stay!

We stayed 3 nights at Idaho556’s beautiful property. They are very friendly hosts with a clean and convenient spot. What a great surprise when they invited our daughter to help feed the goats and sheep; we were all delighted to get to interact with them. The property is beautiful and peaceful. Close enough to town to get whatever you need. Pull through ability was great for our 40’ rig, and what a bonus to have 30amp, water, and sewer! We would definitely stay again if we were passing through Idaho again. Thank you to our gracious hosts!


May 2021

Stay at 556 Idaho farm

The site was super easy to maneuver into with a 21 ft trailer. The owners were informative, friendly and let My husband metal detect where there was an old homestead. He had a great time. I loved the surroundings and being able to get close to the lambs and baby goats. It was a nice spot and close to Twin Falls, Thousand Springs State Park and Shoshone Falls(spectacular). Big thumbs up.


May 2021

Baby Goats!

Idaho556 were great host! They were accommodating and very friendly. We truly enjoyed staying in their land. We were lucky enough to feed baby goats. If we are ever back in the area, we will definitely be stopping by :)


May 2021

Perfect spot!

I had the best time staying at Idaho556’s location! I loved getting to see the baby goats and sheep and my dog was so obsessed she would just sit and stare out of the window at them! The spot has all of the hookups you would need and the location is perfect to anything you would need during your stay. The hosts were so friendly and recommended great things to do during my stay!


May 2021

Goats galore!

We had a really fun visit with this family, who had a bunch of terrific goats. Peaceful country spot. Thanks! MarcyBen


May 2021

Wonderful layover

Great friendly host! Easy pull through access with solid level gravel parking area. Very nice hookups. Enjoyed seeing the farm animals and visiting with our host and learning about the area.
Good Verizon service.
Highly recommended and would stay again if our travels take us back to the area.


May 2021

Peaceful Stop

Loved spending time with our Hosts learning about their excursions and their solar setup on their 5th wheel.
Great hobby farm and the baby goats we were able to feed. Great place, easy parking, 30 amp, and great water too.
Keep that smoker fired up on the road and keep the taste buds dazzled.


April 2021

Perfect and Beyond!

Darwin and Linda were amazing host. Shared information about sights to see. Very hospitable and fun loving people. Our adult kids and grandkiddos visited in the afternoon. Darwin and Linda invited us to help feed the baby goats and lamb's. Such a fun memory...Thank you you're the best!
Dale and Colleen


April 2021

Great Folks

What a nice peaceful place to stay. The owners are very friendly and the farm animals were fun to watch. Mr. 556 drove me around the farm to check out the sites. A come back stop is needed.


April 2021

Great Stay!

Our stay was great! Quiet, peaceful property! We loved watching the goats, sheep and birds! The host made us feel welcomed and comfortable. We enjoyed our conversations learning more about the area and each other RV experiences. We would definitely stay here again.


April 2021

Great treat on a fast paced trip.

Host were wonderful. Kids got to feed baby sheep and goats. The full hookups were a treat. Our best night since we started our trip.


April 2021

Perfect stop for an overnight!

Our first time staying at BW and we are so grateful! My dad is traveling with us, so electric hookup was excellent for his cpap. And bonus was the water and sewer. Got to feed the kids and lambs too - they're so adorable! Thanks D and L!


April 2021

My Favorite Kind of Stay!

Loved the rural location!! Had a nice time talking to D (didn’t get to meet L). D gave a very fun tour that included newborn lambs and goats. Far enough away from the freeway that you cannot hear it but close enough to town that it’s a quick run if you need anything. Would for sure stay there again!!!


April 2021

Awesome place

When we crossed over into Idaho, we went forward in time one hour. This time zone difference caused some confusion on our reservation for the evening. Thankfully, our hosts were still gracious. This is a small farm on the outskirts of Jerome, ID. While not all sites have full hookups, this one does. The people are nice, and the spot is perfect. And the sheep “baa” at me every time I open the door.


January 2021

Beautiful property, Wonderful host, Adorable Goats!

We LOVED our stay with Idaho556! Such wonderful hosts, very helpful--greeted us with a warm welcome, helped us get settled, and gave us great tips for making the most of our short stay. The property is stunning--incredible views of the sunset and stars, and the cutest sweetest goats on the planet. We couldn't recommend this stop more, and hope to return the favor for this kind couple!


October 2020

Great stop

Terrific host made us feel very welcome and offered tips on things to see in the area...and there is lots to see. Fun watching and petting the goats. Our little dog loved the nice grassy area and running through the cornfield. We will look forward to coming back for another visit in the future.


October 2020


They are very generous hosts and we are so thankful.


October 2020

Wonderful Stay - Wonderful Hosts!

Had a great time her getting to know Darwin and Linda. What a beautiful property and great set up for their guests. Their goats were so cute and so much fun! Great area too! Right by the snake river canyon, so lots of hiking, biking and kayaking opportunities. Thank you guys so much!! We loved it, would highly recommend, and would love to come back!


September 2020

Playing with the Goats.

What an amazing location and hosts! We were on our way up to Yellowstone and decided to hang out in Twin Falls for the night. We watched rainstorms as they headed our way. Looking forward to another visit one day.


August 2020

G.O.A.T stay

Greatest Of All Time they have goats! Thank you for another lovely visit.


August 2020

Great visit

Idaho556 provided a large easy access area to park. Nice private location with goats right out the back door. He met us as we pulled in and helped us park. He also provided a lot of suggestions for things to do in the area. Wish we could have stayed longer to better explore the Twin Falls Area.


August 2020

Great stop while traveling.

This was our second stay with this host while traveling south. A very nice spot next to the garden, and a friendly visit as well.

Thank you!


August 2020

Wonderful stay!

This is my 2nd boondockers stay & I was completely surprised!! Great people, wonderful grassy area, complete hook ups. A lit’l slice of heaven. I will definitely return.


August 2020

A must do near Twin Falls

The hosts were very accommodating. They have lived in the area a long time so full of local information. Peaceful setting. Loved the goats (some of them love carrots!).Saw base jumpers off of the Perrine Bridge and Shoshone Falls. Both spectacular! Lots of great conversations! Would definitely come back!


August 2020

Beautiful property

We enjoyed our stay, and or visits with our host, as well as with our fellow Boondockers.


August 2020

Great spot, great hosts

The hosts were wonderful and friendly

It was wonderful to have full hookups right next to their friendly goats.

My kids had so much fun feeding the goats and playing with them.

We will definitely have to come back to enjoy this property and visiting these wonderful hosts


August 2020

Kindest host ever!

I would come here alone just for the kind interaction with the host. Not to mention the property is pristine and gorgeous... if you’re looking for country. There Are two Boondocker spots, one in front of the other. I believe one gets a 50 amp and the other gets a 30 amp. The 30 amp was just fine to run my AC. There’s also potable water and sewer for dumping. I came here as a pitstop And I’m so glad I did. 2 things u must do while here: walk across the famous bridge That goes over the snake river gorge and also definitely go see the Shoshone Falls. Ok, well safe travels!


August 2020

Perfect Loaction, Perfect Stay....Great Hosts

Hosts were very accomodating. We stayed a few nights longer due to the Hot weather. The host even helped my husband fix our messed up awning. Very Thankful for everything!


August 2020

Very Nice Night

We had a wonderful stay. Our kids especially loved feeding and petting the goats. Thanks again for having us!


August 2020

Wonderful stay with great hosts

We loved this site. Very peaceful, quiet, level site with water and electricity. Would love to return here sometime in the future.


August 2020

Peace in Twin Falls

Not only are the hosts the best and the spot so peaceful, but you have relative privacy here. Like another person described it feels like your own personal RV park! Water seeps out of rocks in the numerous gorges in the area, so be sure to check out all of the waterfalls. I missed Niagara Springs, where you can drive right up to the falls. Do not miss Shoshone Falls and hike behind Perrine Coulee Falls. This is a terrific spot to rest and take in the beauty that nature provides.


July 2020

Great stay including the arorable goats

Nice location as promoted including all services. Friendly reception from the hosts. Would stay again if we were in the area. They had some goats in the pasture that were not too far away. They were my wife's favorite part of the stay. Thanks for the warm hospitality.


July 2020


Our hosts and their property exceeded our expectations. As the property is a “Working Farm”, they are very busy folks. They still made a point to spend time chatting with us and getting to know each other.

If the opportunity presents, I would very much want to spend more time with them; at their property or elsewhere in our beautiful country.

Oh yeah, the goats were a a real kick. Loved them.


July 2020

Great hosts

This was our 2nd time visiting the Twin Falls area and staying with Idaho556. The a parking spot is extremely nice and located within 15minutes of many area attractions. This year we were also entertained by their goats! When in the area and looking for an amazing canyon river view with appetizers and drinks, head to Elevation 456.


July 2020

Beautiful farm setting

Hosts were very nice, full hook-up, peaceful setting and some very friendly goats,


July 2020

Field of Dreams

Nestled in 50 acres of corn is their mini RV park for one. With full hookups, 5 baby goats and located 10 mins from town this spot was a welcome break from our road trip. Hosts were so very welcoming to our 7 y-old giving him the chance to feed the goats and run around being a kid.
Many thanks to our hosts for such a relaxing stay.


July 2020

Wonderful Farm

Our hosts were wonderful. We loved their lovely farm. We feel blessed to have been given access to such a wonderful place. Thanks again!


June 2020

Pretty perfect

Easy access, beautiful property, near all the hiking destinations of Twin Falls. Hosts are friendly and helpful and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable.


June 2020

Quiet, convenient, and welcoming

Wonderful first boondockers welcome experience. Welcoming hosts at this quiet spot makes for such a nice resting spot after a long day on the road.


June 2020

Wonderful hosts

The hosts were very friendly and helpful. After pulling in, they showed me where to settle in and hook up, and then came by to check on how I was doing. I was invited to make myself comfortable and enjoy the baby goats. They were so cute, and very frisky and playful. There were ducks in their seasonal pond, along with some frogs as well. This is a peaceful rural setting, and was lovely. Very convenient to Twin Falls and all the waterfalls.


June 2020


This was my 2nd visit at this location!
The 2nd time around was only slightly better that my 1st wonderful visit.
That was probably because I did not get lost in front of their neighbors. Lol!
And also we were already familiar with each other.
Both visits has been terrific & the Hosts are a the best!
Yes, it would be a pleasure to return.
Thank you my friends!


June 2020

Amazing hosts and property

Our hosts were incredibly kind and made us feel at home. This was our first BW experience and it couldn't have gone better. Thank you so much!


June 2020

Slice of Heaven in Idaho!

Overlooking a pond, goats, cows lowing in the pastures and cool weather. Hosts were amazing and so helpful. They greeted us warmly and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We were so thankful for a spot for our big rig when campgrounds nearby were booked. Thank you!


June 2020

Best host ever!!

This host is my favorite!! Never disappoints. Great location. Friendly people very helpful. And now goats!


June 2020

Great host, wonderful accommodations!

Idaho556 was a great host. We arrived on a cold windy afternoon but Idaho556 met us on arrival and gave some tips about propane use, black and gray tank dump, RV heater (which we had never used before). We were very appreciative of the advice. Host has a beautiful farm location with a bunch of kid goats who loved our attention. Electric and water hookups were conveniently located as was the dump station. Since our T-Mobile wasn’t getting much of a signal they let us use their wifi so we wouldn’t have to go back to the Interstate for a good signal to plan our next night’s stay. This was a wonderful experience!


June 2020

Great Location and Great Host

This location is convenient to all the Twin Falls sites. I was welcomed upon arrival and before I even got the RV parked I got a tour of the Snake River by the host from a different perspective than from town. My site for the RV was perfectly level and had access to power and water if I wanted it. Great conversations and got to learn a lot about the area. My home is small hobby farm and loved getting to play with the baby goats. There is a reason why they have so many references and all very positive. Hope to come back again. Thank you for your hospitality.


June 2020

Beautiful country location right by Shoshone Falls!

Darwin and Heidi were amazing hosts. They let the kids play with and feed the baby goats and even helped us with some homeschooling tasks on the road :-).


May 2020

Fantastic Stay

We really enjoyed our stay. Hosts had a beautiful property with full hook up. If that wasn't enough, there were even baby goats to admire!


May 2020


Very nice relaxing stay. Host came out and greeted us as we pulled in. Enjoyed the baby goats. Will stay again for sure when going through.


May 2020

Wonderful Hosts & a Wonderful Parking Space

I have nothing but positive comments about this location which is nicer than most RV Parks w very convenient FHU's for a very reasonable donation for the hookups.
The Hosts were both very helpful in assisting me to find the correct place & informative of the local area.
I very much enjoyed the Shoshone Falls Park & the Perrin Memorial Bridge overlooking the beautiful & deep Snake River Canyon.
Yes! I do recommend this very popular location & would very happy to return someday.
A very sincere thank you to both of the Idaho556's.

As Good as any RV Park, Great Hosts Redux

This was our third stay with Darwin, Idaho556, in Jerome. As always, it was wonderful. Darwin is always welcoming and delightful to chat with! HIghly recommended!


December 2019

Helpful & Friendly

Idaho556 were helpful & friendly from start to finish. They met us at the end of their driveway, we paid for electric hookup & assisted, and chatted with us about RV adventures in the a.m. Highly recommended for sure.


December 2019

Return stay

Great host and perfect place near the freeway.


December 2019

Another good stay

Our second time with Idaho556 And just as pleasant as the first. This may become a regular stop in our Montana to Arizona route!


December 2019

A perfect place to stay

Our hosts, Idaho556, provided us with the perfect place to stay on our way from Palm Springs back to BC. A large amount of space, in a lovely rural setting, yet only 10 or 15 minutes from Costco and other major shopping. A full hookup was provided, and our hosts were very friendly and kind! We would highly recommend Idaho556 and will likely visit again in the future, if available.


November 2019

Greatly appreated this stay.

Best of services we ever had for a 1 night stay.

Thank you, Thank you!

Pat Anderson

November 2019

As Good as any RV Park, Great Hosts

This site has a power pedestal with 30 amp power, water, and a sewer dump! And you will enjoy chatting with Darwin and Linda over coffee in the morning! As good as it gets!


November 2019

Great stop!

Idaho 556 was a welcome stop after close to 400 miles under our belt. Good facilities, more level than most of the campgrounds and RV Parks we have been at. Easy access and egress. As he says in his directions, the driveway can sneak up on you, so be ready. Great conversation, very helpful host!


November 2019

Great hosts, easy location, great communicators

We had perhaps the most easy going BW stay with these two. We just needed a place to crash for the night and Idaho556 made it super easy, even though they weren't there! They even have hookups if you need them (we didn't). Easy to get into with any size rig and good cell service for working. Thanks for the great stay guys!


November 2019

Great place!

Such wonderful hosts, great location and so many great things to see in the Twin Falls area. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back the next time we are going through. It was also great to have the electric during the cold weather we had during our stay - was a huge plus! Highly recommend! :)


October 2019

A warm haven on a cold night

A quiet sage parking place and power to keep the heater running. Quite pleasant when the temperature is in single digits.


October 2019

Very Nice Host with Great Property

This generous host offered us so many things including information and directions to beautiful places to visit in the area as well as valuable travel resources. Having access to electricity, water, and a dump station was very convenient and enabled us to continue our journey without having to make extra stops. We highly recommend stopping to meet this very nice and friendly host and stay on his quiet and peaceful property with beautiful sunsets.


October 2019

Very hospitable

Didn’t get a chance to visit much as they had family but we would love to stop again. Great accommodations beautiful sunset. Highly recommend this host.


October 2019

A good, quiet central location.

I was greeted by Darwin who immediately helped with locating and setting up my RV. He was a storehouse of knowledge of many places to see and visit that I would not have known about, such as Box Canyon. We had several short chats inside my RV in the mornings to set up my day. He was very cordial and informative. He has a nice quiet location central to many amenities. You will not regret staying with this couple.


October 2019

Great stop.

Very kind hosts, close to both shops and waterfalls (!!), and full hook-ups are a huge bonus! Glad we stopped by :)


September 2019

Perfect spot away from it all!

We had a very nice stay. This location is very quiet and peaceful. We needed rest and this was the perfect place. The hosts were very kind, friendly, and accommodating. We enjoyed meeting them and were very comfortable at this location. Thank you!


September 2019


Only staying one night we had a chance to relax and talk with our great host about his farm and traveling. It was great walking along the corn and alfalfa fields.
Thanks again to our hosts.


August 2019

Lovely Stay

Lovely, very accommodating couple.
Location is perfect to explore Twin Falls. Which we loved.
Lots of room for our boys to run around.


August 2019

Relaxing farm

Due to strong headwinds driving West thru Wyoming I arrived later than planned. Easy access, host was kind to bring me a Ziploc bag of ice because my solar 12v fridge was unplugged.
Invited for a morning cup of coffee and a little conversation.
Extraordinary location and hosts!
Thank you so much for your kindness!

August 2019

Above and beyond

Very friendly and welcoming. Gave great tips and insight for things to do in the surrounding area. Above and beyond our expectations. Would definitely stay here again. Fantastic place!


August 2019

Wish there was a rating better than "positive"

Idaho556 are gracious, friendly, warm hosts who made our first BoondockersWelcome stay more than just pleasant! They brought their camp chairs out and sat with us for a couple of hours and visited. It was great getting to know them!

Their small farm is easy to find, easy to access with a 39' 5th-wheel, easy to navigate within; just ... well, easy! 😄

Although they had full hookups (30 amp, water, and sewer), we did not utilize those services so cannot comment on them. However, had we needed them, we would not have hesitated to use them!

Although the weather did not want to cooperate in the evening with a few thunderstorms occasionally rolling through, we still had a restful night's sleep.


August 2019

It was all we could have hoped for and more!

Like so many others, this was the first time we've used Boondocker's Welcome, and we couldn't have been happier. We were able to park here on relatively short notice (same day) and the place was great. Full hookups, a host that knows the area we'll, and a location not too far off the beaten path, we are definitely going to try and stay here the next time we're passing through Twin Falls.


August 2019

As Good as it Gets

This is a great stop for travelers. Easy to find, easy to maneuver, hookups, and a really pleasant place to camp. As great as that is, the best part of this stop are the hosts. Hospitable and friendly, they make you feel 100% welcome and go out of their way to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. This is our second time with Idaho556 and we had a wonderful visit. Great discussions regarding camping advice and modifications to rigs and solar systems. And suggestions on places to see while in town. Can't wait to visit again!! Thank you Thank you!!!!

July 2019

Wonderful hosts

We really enjoyed these hosts and their place. Thank you so much for the hospitality and sharing your property with us. Beautiful spot with hookups! Come see us soon! Kelley and John


July 2019

Super Nice couple!

Our second stay was equally super fantastic. Thoughtful and so generous of this couple to let guests stay at their beautiful property. Great conversations and new friends, hope to see them again!


July 2019

Perfect base for exploring Twin Falls area

Could not have asked for a better home base and most welcoming hosts. We stayed 3 nights. Cooper enjoyed the grassy area we parked by and having access to water and sewer eased our planning.


July 2019

Super Gracious hosts

Great location, great amenities and super great hosts! Wonderful stop for quiet and peaceful stay. We look forward to another stay. Thanks so much again.


July 2019

Above and beyond

Incredibly kind hosts that went beyond our expectations. Would definitely stay here again!


July 2019

Peaceful and beautiful.

This was our first experience with Boondockers Welcome and it was perfect. Darwin and Linda's property was beautiful. We thank you for the beautiful setting near the pond, where we enjoyed watching and listening to all the birds. Full hook-ups and a level spot.. Thanks again


June 2019

Great Stay!

This was our first Boondockers experience and it could not have been better. Host was very accommodating and we really enjoyed the conversation. Told us about some great things to see in the area. Spot was quiet and dark and we slept very well. Our dog is usually in our truck waiting to go the minute she sees us packing up but we had to make her come with us. She was ready to stay.


June 2019


I had a very nice 4 nights stay at Idaho556's house. Lots of space to park and easy to maneuver and hook ups and dump if you need them. Nice little chats too. Thank you for having me!


May 2019

Flexible, Helpful and Easygoing

A very nice location, peaceful, beautiful and serene. Was like being on the set of Green Acres, land spreading out far and wide. Darwin and Linda are very nice hard working people and quite accommodating. Just a short distance to grocery store and restaurants. Wish I could have helped Darwin out with some chores. Maybe next time.


May 2019


We had an awesome experience here. After a long day of driving, we were greeted promptly, introduced and mingled for a few minutes and did our thing. It was nice to have the night to ourselves and to rest and enjoy the experience. Property was beautiful and in the morning we visited more!


May 2019

Beautiful Property

Great hosts! We really enjoyed our one night stay. Listened to the frogs croaking in the nearby pond all night. Perfect location if you are travelling between Yellowstone and Yosemite N.P.


May 2019


Very fast approval. Super friendly couple. Beautiful area. Interesting conversations. Hoping they come see us.


April 2019

Great host, wonderful location

Such a kind, caring, wonderful host! Made sure we were taken care of CONSTANTLY, and gave recommendations on places to go. You get the FULL hookup here! Amazing! Hope to stay again sometime!


April 2019

Wonderful stay

Wonderful couple with a lovely spot to share. Greeted us warmly with a few suggestions on touring the area. We are sorry not to spend another day but we are in a time crunch. We will definitely stay here again if possible. Would love to explore the area further. Thank you again! Safe travels


March 2019

Idaho 556

Thank you kind folks!
Pleasant stay after some long driving on a farm near Jerome..
A courteous host and all amenities.
Got some badly needed rest.
Would recommend!


March 2019

Lovely space!

Thank you for letting us pull in for a night .Thank you Darwin for all the sight seeing info in the area! I think we need to come back for another visit and stay two days! Idaho is beautiful! M


December 2018

Fabulous place to stay!

Thank you Darwin and Linda for the warm welcome and amazing site for us to stay at. Great location on our route south from B.C. We highly recommend these hosts and will definitely come again if we are in the area!

The Spot is the Full Meal Deal, Darwin is an Excellent Host!

When you stay here, you get not only a place to park - you get a spot that rivals any RV park, including a power pedestal, a frost free water spigot, a sewer dump and WiFi! Darwin helped us get in and positioned, and we chatted a little bit after we arrived. In the morning, he invited us into his house for coffee, and we gratefully accepted! We had a very pleasant visit over coffee! This is one place where you will want to offer to reimburse the host for the power, he may not accept it at first but if you put $5 on his coffee table, he will be appreciative! He has hosted more than 60 BW guests this year, and in my book, that makes him a champion host! We had always stayed at Walmart in Jerome before BW, and we were just blown away by this host and host site! Highly recommended!

Much cooler oasis

Thank you again for letting us stay on our way back to Canada.

Wonderful host's

Kind and helpful hosts!

This was our first experience on Boondockers and we couldn’t have chosen a better spot! Our hosts were so kind and helpful. It was a lovely and easy way to begin our journey. So grateful.


November 2018


Quiet and pleasant with easy on off freeway.


October 2018

Great location

Arrived to a warm welcome and amazing accommodations. Nice quiet location just a few miles from twin falls, we will definitely come again if passing through!


October 2018

Great Host; Fantastic Location

Nestled in acres of farm land, Host welcomed & directedme to park next to a great lawn & pumpkin patch. Surrounded by beautiful farm land, Hosts offered a "full hook up"! Wow! Gratefully utilized the electric & water, especially since my RV propane furnace wasn't working. Host was so kind, came in and tried various connections & even drove me into to town to check w a RV mechanic and when returned, found was a broken Thermostat!
Host was so kind, he picked one up when out and installed it! What kindness!!!
Poured all day on 2nd day, but I was warm & dry with a gorgeous view.
Heartedly Reccomend these Hosts!

This was our first Boondockers experience and it far surpassed our expectations. Great hosts, very welcoming and friendly. Directions to the farm are perfect, easy to find and the site is easy to navigate. Thank you so much for taking the time to give us advice for camping and boondocking and sharing your camping expertise. We had a great time and hope to see you again someday. Thanks so much for hosting!


September 2018


Great location and wonderful hosts. Close to town yet out in the country. Awesome sunsets. Thank you for taking the time to give us an awesome tour of the Twin Falls community. We kayaked the Snake River and enjoyed the bike path to the Shashone Falls. Our dog loved walking the farm fields for some exercise. Would definitely return to this great BW location.


September 2018

So friendly and accommodating!

Wow! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Idaho556. They were so accommodating (as we arrived a day early, and at night). Super quiet spot in Twin Falls and a great host. We would love to come back and stay longer! Thank you for hosting us!


September 2018

Warm welcome

I was greeted with a warm welcome and had a very easy and safe time in their spacious driveway. Thanks so much for hosting!


September 2018

Amazing stay

We had the pleasure of staying with Idaho556. Easy access off/on freeway. Clear, specific directions to property, parking and hook-ups. Kind and considerate hosts. Close enough to town activities and local attractions, but out far enough road noise or light pollution not an issue. Enjoyed beautiful sunsets and a big full moon. The host location is perfect and the hosts are exemplary.


September 2018


What a wonderful oasis after a long day of travel! Our hosts were friendly, helpful and welcoming. We enjoyed chatting about travel and RVs. The site is everything an RVer could want - level, space for maneuvering, a lovely patch of green grass to the side of our rig, with trees and a garden just beyond that.


September 2018

Great stay

We had a wonderful stay at their property. Very helpful, fun to talk with, and great communication. Would recommend!


September 2018

We felt like part of the family!

What a fabulous experience. Our hosts were wonderful and truly cared about our wellbeing. We found America right in the middle of Idaho. Thank you for accommodating us. Hope to see you again soon.


September 2018

Terrific Stay!

Had a terrific stay with Idaho 556. Site was conveniently located just out of town. Good directions, level private site. Darwin graciously offered to be our private tour guide for a day and took us to locations we would have never discovered. Hope we are able to meet up again!


September 2018

Couldn't have been better

On the outskirts of town, (Jerome) is this little diamond in the rough. We had 30amp, water, sewer, and a green lawn with garden, right along side of our 5th wheel. A host willing to make our stay enjoyable, & it was.


September 2018

What a fantastic family and host!

Our family stayed here over the weekend on our way to Utah. Our fridge went out on the way, but our host quickly offered up his fridge/freezer to help us save our food. We were so thankful for the hospitality. Bonus, their grandkids were there so our boys had playmates for the whole weekend. As a full-time traveling family, this was such a blessing! Thank you so much for generosity - we only wish we had been able to meet Linda as well. God bless you!


September 2018

Great campfire evening!

What a wonderful stay! Lots of sharing travel notes around the fire, on a nice warm evening, with other travelers too! Idaho556 is very welcoming and sicial. We had a great time and would certainly go back if we visit the area for a longer time.


September 2018

Great spot and welcoming host

We had a comfortable stay in a quiet location and enjoyed visiting with our host. Definitely would recommend Idaho556.


August 2018

A special time with a super couple

Darwin and Linda are a super couple who fully embrace the whole Boondockers welcome experience and we thoroughly enjoyed staying with them. Darwin shared his new hobby with us - Taking Boondockers to see the Shoshone Falls and surrounding sights. Thanks Darwin for sharing your time and knowledge with us. Thanks to Linda for the excellent homemade bread and brownies :)


August 2018

Beautiful Oasis.

This was our second Boondockers stay. Parked facing the garden. Had a nice visit with Darwin as he was waiting for the second Boondocker to arrive.


August 2018

Wonderful First Time Experience

Great host, show us around the farm, made us feel right at home. Another couple was staying there too, Darwin broke out the camp fire and we all had a memorable evening telling tales around the camp fire!


August 2018

Great Couple and fantastic hosts

Idaho556 made us feel at home from the first minute we meet,we had talkes,walkes and shared great times together, we will always cherish the time we had together.
Thank you very much for your kind hospitality.


August 2018

Great stay

Loved our stay here. Very friendly and interesting. Could not have been better.


August 2018

So very kind.

This was my first stay with Boondockers Welcome. If you are arriving after dark here be sure to double check the address on the mailbox. My gps put me in the neighbor’s narrow driveway and I had a hard time getting back out. It was the middle of the night and I am certain I was an inconvenience,but still Darwin was so kind and helped me out and got me where I needed to be, so the kids and I could get some much needed rest and continue our journey safely.


August 2018

“Oasis after a hot day!”

Traveling from West Linn to visit family in Ohio! We had temperatures of 107% at one point during a very hot day we found this perfect green place to cool! The greenest grass in the State with 12’ corn! The best quiet place for a perfect nights rest! Wonderful host. Hope your repaid many time over during your travels! Steve & Ruth


August 2018

Perfect first time

Idaho556 were two incredible hosts, especially for two brand new RVers. We were greeted before we could finish even setting up and my wife was given fresh cut flowers from their garden. Their property was beautiful and peaceful but the hosts were the highlight of our stay. They reinforced all of the good qualities of folks that we hope to encounter on our new adventures.


July 2018

Wonderful oasis

After what seemed to be an extraordinarily long and hot travel day with temperatures in excess of 100 degrees, we arrived at Idaho556's oasis. Within a few minutes we had the opportunity to be introduced and with greetings all around, became well acquainted in short order. What a delight!
Staying here seems very much like staying with family or good friends. Although our time spent here was brief, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in this beautiful place and enjoyed the warm and genuine hospitality. We hghly recommend that if you are in this area and in need of a evening's respite that you spend it here, enjoying the abundant hospitality beautiful surroundings offered by Idaho556.


July 2018

Great stay!

Our host was great! We arrived latter than expected and it was easy to find in the dark and easy hook up. Idaho556 welcomed us in the morning and we had a great conversation, then we were on our way. I wish we had been able to stay for more time, but we had to get on the road. Thank you for your hospitality!


July 2018

Great Place

We stayed one night here and really, really appreciated the full hook-ups and being cool in the high heat. These two are a wonderful couple that I wish we'd had more time to get to know. Thank you for the stay and when we settle in Boston, you are more than welcome to come visit us!


July 2018

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 !


July 2018

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.


June 2018

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!


May 2018

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.


April 2018

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.


April 2018

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.


November 2017

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.


August 2017

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


thank you very much for the welcome
we spend a very quiet night in the countryside
and we (a couple of French ) were very happy to talk with you about your country

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.


May 2017

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.


April 2017

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.


November 2016

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!
