Nice guests

Very nice guests that stayed one night. It was short notice and we already had dinner plans so they had to find our place and park without our help. We chatted for a bit after we got home. They are more than welcome to come back for another stay.

Jroedink were great guests. Extended there stay so they could explore the area. Welcome back anytime. Wishing them safe travels.


September 2018

Didn’t even know they were here

Polite self sufficient guests with great communication. Weather was rainy so we didn’t get much time to visit while they were here for two nights. We would definitely host again.


September 2018

Great Family and Polite Grand Kids

Very nice couple with polite grandchildren. They restored our faith that young people can be enjoyable to be around. They were very respectful of our property and I hope they will pas this way again as they quest to visit every federal park in the United States.


August 2018

Great campers

Talk to them for about 15/20 minutes. Enjoy them while they were here. Great campers

Very nice couple!

Such a nice couple. Very quiet, barley noticed they were here. He handles their rig very well. We did not get to spend much time with them but we would have liked to have gotten to know them...maybe next time! We would welcome them back any time.


March 2018

National Park Tourists

Jroerdink arrived late in evening and left early in the morning so did not have much interaction with them. They were on a shake down cruise with their new trailer and excited to start another tour of National Parks. They are seasoned travelers and handled their rig very well. We will welcome them again.


February 2018

Great couple.

Didn't get to spend much time together. They were in and out early the next day. Would like to see them again and spend more time getting to know them.


December 2017

Jroerdink were perfect guests.

Jroerdink were friendly, respectful and overall perfect guests. Just the kind of people we joined this group to meet and share our little spot on the coast. Happy travels Jroerdink. Come see us again if you come our way again.


May 2017

Lovely people.

Jroerdink was my very first experience with hosting a boondocker. A person couldn't have asked for a better experience. I'm not too good at these kind of reviews, so I'll simply say that I would host these people again in half a heartbeat any time of any day. They are simply lovely people and it is a joy to know them.


October 2016

Great guests

Perfect for boondockers!

My hosts provided a great spot for me to have a great sunset. It was cloudy the second night so I only saw it once. Lovely spot set up specifically for Boondockers Welcome. They offered 30 amp hookup for pennies. I even got fresh garden fare--tomatoes and zucchini! For a good time visit this host!


August 2021

Beautiful setting for an awesome SUNSET

Jroerdink has a lovely site on a hill overlooking rural Wisconsin. The westerly view provided a nice sunset. We had a little problem communicating just prior to our arrival but directions and description of property were spot on so it wasn't a problem. The host is a friendly guy and we had a nice conversation. He invited us to share the trails on the property and it was nice for dog walks. I would definitely stay again if in the area.


August 2021

Very helpful host

This location is beautiful and peaceful. Just what we needed for a few days. Our hosts were very helpful and went out of their way to make sure we were all situated. J is very knowledgeable in travel trailers and gave us lots of information and advice. Would definitely recommend Quiet Hilltop Overlook and don't forget to get your lawn chairs out for the killer sunsets! Thank you for allowing us to stay.


July 2021

Hilltop Camping

Great camping spot with nice view and 30 amp service. If you’re looking for quite, safe, and somewhat remote camping this is it. Jroerdink was the perfect host and even guided me to the spot and helped me get level. Would love a return visit in the future.


July 2021

Camp with a view.

My stay at hilltop was excellent. The location is remote but accessible which is exactly how I like it. Very private and quiet with a beautiful sunset view. 30 amp. hookup was a nice surprise and Jroerdink even let me pick some wild raspberries that were in season. Great place to relax and unwind while listening to the many varieties of song birds. Would love a return visit in the future.


June 2021

Wonderful host, beautiful property!

Our friendly host J greeted us and got us set up on his quiet, hilltop site. What a beautiful view and a peaceful night's rest! We had a nice chat and J gave us some suggestions of things to do in the area. It rained all day so we didn't get to see too much in the area. However, we would love to return again to explore more and see an epic sunset. We highly recommend this host!!


June 2021

Welcomed us in wet weather

Our host met us and led us into the property, helping get us situated despite the rain and soggy conditions. In the morning he made a great suggestion for a breakfast spot in town that proved to be a hit. Because it was Sunday, and still misting, after breakfast we visited the local park on the river before heading out. All in all a comfortable spot for boondocking with a helpful host!


June 2021

Awesome BoonDockers Welcome Site!

Spent some very enjoyable time at Quiet Hilltop Overlook. Host Jim met us at the site and was very helpful and friendly. Beautiful site that is very secluded but has 30amp electric available. Beautiful sunsets overlooking scenic forests. Definitely will look forward to a return visit.


June 2021


Host was very nice and helpful. I had difficulty finding the place. He came and found me and led me right to it. The view from the hilltop was beautiful. It was very quiet with only the sounds of birds and nature. I would stay there again. Thank you


July 2020

Very nice place

What a great place to park for two nights. Offer 30 amp and water if needed. Will stop again if we are ever in the area.


October 2017

Very Nice Hosts

We stayed two nights with these thoughtful hosts. Hope we can reciprocate some day in their future travels.

Quiet Hill Top

Our hosts were some of the nicest people we’ve ever known!! They made sure that we had no problems finding their property & where our site was located on the 25 acres. There was an issue with the pedestal power & because our coach is equipped to sense that, the power would shut down. So the hosts were gracious & understanding & allowed us to run our generator during the day. It was cooler at night, so we didn’t need it. We simply enjoyed the cool breeze. We had plenty of space for our 38 ft rig & parked our tow right in front of it. They were very kind to let us stay 3 nights so we could explore the surrounding areas. Took lots of pictures & made wonderful memories!! We liked them so much that we invited them to come visit us if they are ever in Florida in the cooler months 😁. The host is gradually making improvements to the site area & if we’re ever in the area we’d love to revisit!!!
