Nice peaceful place with electric

We needed a spot for a couple days on our way to Colorado Springs. This was a perfect spot. La Junta is a quiet, peaceful town with a few interesting tourist spots that we enjoyed. We like Boondockers Welcome sites that have electric in case of very cold or hot weather. We did have 50 amps here. We could also have hooked up to water if we had needed it. Would recommend.

Another of those quaint towns along the secondary highways. Quiet at this site away from highways. Lots of room and polite host.

Nice stop on a long journey

We were relieved to stop at Eggman’s place as we crossed the state line! He was accommodating and kind! His property was nice, the town was so quiet and we discovered we were close to a school where we walked our dogs and ran around the track. We only stayed for one night- glad we did and grateful we had the chance. Thank you!!!

Host was very patient with us newbies even when we missed our target arrival and had to stay in a hotel. Our new travel trailer , part of electrical went out and truck had muffler problems we had to repair. Host was very nice and accommodating. Would definitely recommend!!!

Eggman's Exceptional

Let's just say we'd has a rough day before arriving at Eggman's - blowout on the highway, finding a tire store to replace it so we could get off our spare, leaving an adapter at our previous stop, road construction, etc... Upon arrival, "Eggman" met up with a smile, had electrical ready for us, loaned us an adapter so we could connect, and helped turn around our day and send us off on the rest of our trip with a smile.

Also, there was a Sonic and a public pool with a slide a few blocks away that were perfect entertainment for the kids. Thank you!

Great for Adults

Eggman was friendly and helped us determine the best place to park our rig. There was plenty of room for our 35' 5th wheel and truck. We were offered 50 amp, which was wonderful. It's a nice stop for adults, but I would not recommend the yard for small children.

Friendly, Quiet Location, Helpful

Eggman was congenial; he met us at his property. We had a nice conversation about Boondockers and the local area. It was easy to set up, use his electrical service and take on water. It was a quiet night for us. Tbanks Eggman!

Great Host!

Eggman was a great host, very accommodating. He allowed us to park wherever we wanted on his property for whatever worked best for us. Also, as our travel plans changed he allowed us to stay an extra day.
Thank you very much!

We love this Host’s place. Very quite and provides a good nights rest. The availability of power is a plus when nights are hot. Will stay again.

Nice Stop

The host was very hospitable. Some of the parking gets a little muddy in the rain, there are however, other parking spots on the property in such an occasion. The property is very nice and the host is kind and generous. A good stop over!

Eggman visit

Very nice visit. 30 amp power available was nice but not used. Plenty of space to park with shade or Sun. La Junta is a good sized town with everything available and very nice people. Did a walk of about 2 hrs.

Eggman has a really nice place. Plenty of parking options. All flat.

Had a brief convo with Eggman. He was a very nice guy.

A great place to spend a night. I would request to stay here again.

Peaceful stay!

A huge thanks to Eggman for letting us stay and being so flexible with our schedule as we worked around the weather. It was quiet and peaceful with plenty of room, and easy access to everything in the area. He was a great host and ensured we were comfortable during our stay. Much appreciated!

Relaxing stay after a lot of driving!

We had a great stay and greatly appreciate eggman's generosity in opening his property to us for a few nights.

We were able to hook up to 30a electric and water, and we enjoyed exploring some of SE Colorado and also had decent hot-spot reception (it's t-mobile, so we don't ever have super high expectations, lol) so we were able to get work done as well.

Thanks so much!!

Enjoyable rest before a long drive through Kansas. Host very welcoming.

In preparation for a long time when we arrive to set up I was told us how to connect to the power we had a peaceful evening. I would recommend this place.

Fabulous Host!

This was our first Boondockers Welcome and the host was fantastic! He was right there ready to help us park and even loaned us his extension cord to hook up to his electric. He was very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. He had just had eye surgery and he was still so helpful and gracious and he didn’t have to be. Nice quiet neighborhood. We had a peaceful stay and we’re grateful for the rest we got. Highly recommend this place.

Great stay!

My stay at Eggman’s place was so nice! He let me hook up to his 30amo extension cord and use his super fast wifi! What a treat!

Great experience!

The site was great, since rain was expected he suggested we park in the driveway. We had contacted him since we were going to arrive a little later than expected And he was fine with that. This was our maiden “boondock”, and we were very impressed!!

Peaceful

Due to Covid 19, there was very little interaction, however Richard was very accommodating, respectful, and helpful.
Numerous parking options for shade and electricity, peaceful location

Eggman delivers

Perfect location for us on our travels. Easy to navigate 32’ Class A with motorcycle toad. Eggman was very helpful getting us hooked up with 30 Amp service, water and really solid WIFI. A few different parking options. All on grass/dirt yard.
You won’t find a lot of local “things to do”. There was a community pool just a few blocks away. But COVID has that on lockdown for the time being.
It was a great stop for us along our travel route. Felt pretty safe in this small town neighborhood property.

Good place

My host met me as I arrived and helped me back in to a level site and gave me everything I needed. We kept our distance with a brief conversation and assured me if anything ele was needed to let him know. My morning drive as I headed West was spectacular with the Rocky mountains in my windshield. I would highly recommend.

Awesome spot in town near Fort Bent!

Eggman was an awesome host, large flat front yard with and a nice big shady spot by the barn as well. We were so thankful to have access to water and 30amp since it was a toasty 90 degrees the two nights we stayed!

Great Host and Prime Location

Host had plenty of room and options for parking. This is a great location for doing some local site-seeing. Train tracks nearby but didn't notice too many trains at night. Highly recommended!

Welcoming host!

Stopped by for one night. Eggman did not mind my early arrival and even dropped by to make sure I got in alright! Plenty of room to park. I’d stay here again if I were in the area!

One night in

We spent a delightful night at Eggman. He accommodated us in every way possible - without us asking. We were in La Junta to visit Bents Fort, a National Park Service Monument. Our host drove us out to the monument to check out the parking lot since we were planning to go in the morning with our rig. We invited him to share a lite dinner with us while we all talked about our rv travels. It’s been a long time since we met a kinder gentleman. We will remember this visit.

Cute Town, Accommodating Host

I enjoyed my stay at eggman's location. Host is very accommodating yet unobtrusive. Easy in and out. I had delicious breakfast at the coffee shop in town, would have enjoyed a longer stay in La Junta!

Easy Access, Quiet & Peaceful

We enjoyed our stay with eggman. We had 50 amp electrical service. His neighbor had alpaca, llama, and sheep grazing nearby. He mentioned two historical locations and we visited both. We visited the Koshare Indian Museum on Sunday and Bent's Old Fort on our way our of town on Monday. We recommend both if you're in the area.

SO NICE!

Eggman was super nice! He provided a place for us to park and hook up to electricity for the night. We woke up the next morning to a couple of our RV tires being almost flat and he helped us air them up and directed us to a good place to go to replace the valves! Would definitely recommend him and stay there again if we had the chance!

Eggmans roost

We arrived at Eggmans place a bit early and was warmly greeted by his father and shown our boondocking spot. It was a lovely quiet place to stay the night and very easy to find. Very nice folks and we look forward to boondocking there again in the future.

We missed out meeting in person.

Our travel plans had us passing through Eggman's area. We were looking forward to our stay and had everything set up. Unfortunately, with the change in weather and travel plans, we did not make it there.

Eggman's communication was good and we were all set. We hope to be in the area some day to meet.
