Availability

Hookup site is available year round. Primitive sites are only available in summertime when the field is dry enough to drive on as there is no gravel on the road to access it.

Access Road Conditions

Our hookup site is graveled with good access to it. A little tight for one turn around the shop but you can see that in the pictures. I do it with our 29 foot trailer all the time. The other sites are in a small field surrounded by trees with a large fire pit in the middle. Some height issues as you enter the site.

Site Description

We have one site with 30 amp power, water, RV dump, fire pit and picnic table. We can even provide you some dry firewood. We also have an isolated primitive site for 2-3 RVs around a large fire pit when the weather is good and field is dry to drive on. We look forward to visiting with you!

Suggested Local Attractions

We have a lot of rivers and trails around for kayaking, hiking and biking. Nearby we have lots of Outlet Malls, antique shops, museums as well as an authentic steam train from spring to fall plus on some holidays. We are only 2 hours from the ocean and 1 1/2 hours to the St. Helens Volcanic Monument. To learn more about out local community click here: www.discoverlewiscounty.com

Welcome to our boondocking site!

Lot's of room for your rig.

Turn left in front of the shop then right. Watch out for the overhang of the shop! Go to the right of the shop if this is too tight.

Come on past the shop and the site is on the left. One dump station is beside the shop on the left and another at the site.

About Kevin and Julie

In A Few Words...

Kevin and Julie, recently retired fire captain and his flame of almost 40 years.

A Little More Detail

Welcome to our boondocking site and we truly look forward to meeting you! We are excited to be joining this group of fellow RVers.

Kevin is recently retired from a 30-year career as a fire captain for the city of Chehalis. Julie is a stay-at-home mom/wife. Together we operate a wildland firefighting suppression business.

When we are not fighting fires we enjoy RVing and are looking forward to many travels around the United States.

Our first serious traveling adventure on the road was the year we graduated from college (Yea WSU Cougs!) and we hit the road in our pickup and camper. 2 1/2 months and 48 states later we were back in WA and working at our jobs. We have since hit the other two states. Over 30 years and a career later we are looking forward to traveling more in our semi-retirement. We are now looking forward to really experiencing the awesome sights our country has to offer at a more leisurely pace.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

South in the sunshine! We have had some great travels in the south but we also have many beautiful and enjoyable state parks in WA that we enjoy.

Kevin and Julie's Rig

29 ft 2003 Arctic Fox travel trailer with two slideouts. Older but very nice and does the job for us! Our truck is a 2008 2500 Ram.

Kevin and Julie's Home Town

Chehalis is our nearby town with a population of 7000. A few miles from our home is a WalMart, Home Depot as well as all the other stores downtown. We also have a couple of RV stores nearby if you should need anything from there.

Skills or Expertise to Share

If you have minor repairs to be made or maintenance you need to do on your RV we may be able to help out. We have a well equipped shop and are more than happy to help a fellow RVer out with minor repairs. We have full sets of tools, welders, cutting torches and woodworking tools.

Kevin and Julie are just good people!! We loved getting to know them and they were some of the best hosts we've stayed with! Not just because of Julie's zucchini bread :) Look forward to seeing these two again in the future!

Both Kevin & Julie were great hosts and have a beautiful setting for overnighting!
One night we got home to find that Kevin and Julie had started a fire and were visiting with the other BoonDockers that were also staying. A great stay and very hospitable folks! Mark & Patsi

We stayed on a Saturday and Sunday at Kevin and Julie's property. It was an incredible spot and they allowed us to use their 30 amp hookup as well as water. We even dumped our gray water tank on our way out the next morning.
They were a delight to talk to and we would highly suggest them to other boondockers in the area.

Thank you, Kevin and Julie for a great place to rest a couple nights.
