Awesome Hosts and Location!

Our overnight stop at The Old Cowboy's Ranch Pasture was a great experience. Our hosts were friendly, gracious and really made us feel at home. Our fur-baby really appreciated the chance to stretch her legs and explore. Their ranch is gorgeous and peaceful. Our only regret is that our travel schedule only let us stay one night. We will definitely request a stay when we come through this way again.

Fantastic Stay!

We had a great time at Old Cowboy’s place! The location is fantastic and the host told us about some area things to do and see. We woke up one morning to cows out our front door, does it get any better!? We visited The Pioneer Woman’s shop and Woolaroc Museum which we knew nothing about before arriving, Woolaroc was such a great place to visit and we’re thankful to the host for letting us know about it! The hosts had family in town so we were able to meet and have a nice evening visit with them all. We highly recommend stopping by if you can! We enjoyed our stay.

This stop is the very why I joined a site like Boondockers Welcome. Jim and Lisa were the absolute nicest and most accommodating people I could've ever asked for. I happened to be there when their own family was visiting and they welcomed me into their home. I had an absolute blast socializing and laughing and have made friends in the process. Thank you!

What a pleasure it was to stay with such great hosts. Even though we mostly social distanced. they brought me the greatest pulled pork dinner! My dogs loved the open spaces and the cows. They had a perfect place for me to park with electric and water. I recommend staying here!

Beautiful Place!

The hosts were super accommodating and great to talk with, although we kept a safe 6 ft distance. I roamed around the property a bit after driving all day. It's a beautiful place. I'd definitely go back.

Safe haven during a difficult time.

This was our 2nd stay with the Old Cowboy. With less than ideal weather for traveling and the Coronavirus social distancing it was wonderful to see the Old Cowboy’s smiling face when we pulled into the driveway. Even though we kept our distance it was a warm welcome that felt like arriving at an old friend’s home. We missed being able to sit and chat and can’t wait till the next time we are thru their state to Boondock with The Old Cowboy.

Shady and quiet

They were wonderful. We arrived in our 2004 Born Free and were welcome like old friends. The old cowboy has a Trek RV in his garage. We loved it and my wife, who thought she had to have slide-outs, decided the Trek was big enough. We loved the bed in the ceiling. Ms. Old Cowboy got on the Trek Track web site and found us a Trek 252 Miles away. We bought it. Love it! We are full time and hit the road for the west this week.

Wonderful Couple.

Such a nice time visiting with Old Cowboy and his wife. Their location is so peaceful with such beautiful sunsets. Hope to stay with them again when passing thru the area.

Wonderful people!!!

I can't say enough about this host, they were wonderful!! I stayed over Thanksgiving and they invited me to dinner with their family. My dog also needed stitches removed (as he had surgery before we left Nebraska) and I asked for a local vet who could take out the stitches. They called their vet and she made a house call to take my dog's stitches out. They are real salt of the Earth people.

They were very helpful to a newbie RVer and I will surely stay with them the next time I'm passing through.

Absolutely a Great Couple

Due to the amount of rain received in the area we could not get in to their property with the size & weight of our motor home. Before we had even arrived they had made arrangements for us to stay in their churches parking lot. When we arrived at the church numerous people appeared looking to help us out. What a great community. Everyone we met was really nice & helpful. Jim & Lisa are an absolutely great couple. We would have loved to spend some more time with them. They both helped us out with better directions to our next stop. Jim even called the next day to see if we arrived safely. If we are ever back this way this is a definate stop.

Our criteria for a review is would we stay there again. Definitely! The hosts were very accommodating and friendly. Cows, geese, green pastures all created a serene stay. We loved waking up to the sound of the cows and calves chewing grass right outside our window. Thank you!

We weren’t able to stay there because the timing wasn’t right, but if we’re ever in the area again, we’ll try to make arrangements sooner.
