Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are now retired and enjoy meeting others people. Ellis grew up camping and moved with family often. Sheryl grew up on a local farm with animals so always stayed close until we married 35+ years ago. We enjoy traveling, meeting locals where ever we are, enjoy our family and are content staying at home if needed.

We are very active in our local fair and are active in two different schools with their FFA kids in leadership contests.

Wonderful sweet couple!

Such a sweet couple. They were schedule to stay and Although I had another couple ,I accept them to stay but I was mistaken thinking they were coming in the pickup with the bed on it camper but they were in the pull trailer so it was difficult to maneuver through the gate and I hadnt fixed it yet . But talking with them I really liked them and found simailar intrested and hope they come back this way to host them .( Fixed the gate) just wonderful attitudes and a sweet couple! Anyone would enjoy having them as guest.

Our first boon dockers

They were the first boon dockers at 'an oasis in the desert' and it was fun to have them with us. Both were friendly and willing to talk. We shared some good information. They are welcome by us.

Quiet place

Host met us upon arrival, even though it was late and rainy! Very helpful with setting us up and information. Welcomed and invited us to stay again ... which we will if we’re in the area again.


July 2018

Just right

Passing through the area and this was a great place to be able to park my camper and tow vehicle for the night.

Thank you for accommodating us. We had a great time!

Great Site

Host was super at communication and offered lots of sightseeing options. I was sad we didn't get to spend more time with him as we were just spending the night before moving on. Site is great and as described. He met us there to make sure we got parked alright and was very friendly. I hope we can come back when we have more time to spend. Thanks!

Nice people!

We enjoyed staying one night at Shaven's site. They are very kind people. They also gave us interesting suggestions in visiting Notre Dame University campus. Many thanks!

We wish to see them again.
