Most people comment on how peaceful the place is and we think it is near perfect, but here are the gritty details—— We offer a flat part of our 1.5 acres in the woods to park on. The site may have grass until the summer heat cooks it. The place is fenced so pets may run. The neighborhood is in an area of “mini ranches”. Neighbors have chickens ( and at times roosters) and sheep, but they are good neighbors. My trailer fits around all the curves and branches, but please look to ensure yours will. While I prefer you arrive before dark, I understand conditions are not always ideal. If you come after dark, please take extra precautions that the site is what you want. Total length can be 45-50 feet if articulated. A Class A over 40 feet can fit , but will be hard pressed, to make the driveway turns. We offer an Extension cord for household electric. No generators, please, in respect of the neighbors, but it cools down nice at night and AC isn’t necessary for sleep. There is water but not to the site. Decent Verizon- we use them for WiFi. We hear ATT is good. Pets OK in fenced except gate yard. We have a large, friendly dog. Neighbors have chickens. Campfires in our ring ( as long as fire danger is low) - we even supply firewood. Nice covered deck for camp chairs. 1 mile to supermarket, 1.5 miles to river access, 3 miles to awesome trail into Selway Bitterroot Wilderness, 3 miles to Lee Metcalf Wildlife Refuge. We welcome all kind folks, regardless of skin or rv color or who you choose to travel with. Suggested Local Attractions:Explore Missoula. Drive through Lee Metcalf Wildlife Refuge. Bitterroot bike trail is 3/4 mile away.

Location

Access Road Conditions: We are less than a mile from US 93. The last 1/2 a mile is narrow, private dirt road that can have potholes at times. There are 2 sharp curves. A friend came in with a 40 foot motor home and toad just fine. This is not to scare you, but warn you if you only do pavement. There is a 90 degree turn into our driveway. Once you get there, we have a turn around and spur. The shadiest spot is a bit of a backup on the spur. Please send your ETA as a text on your day you’ll arrive- ie- on your drive here, the day you are to stay here, send me your ESTIMATED arrival time. More than 1 guest is welcome but it blocks the turn around and you must back in.

    Our little family had a wonderful time staying with Mike & Bonnie on their property. The hosts were gracious, thoughtful and kind. They have a beautiful, secluded property nestled in the pine & ponderosa trees and a great location for day hikes to kootenai creek. I highly recommend staying at this property. Thank you Bonnie for a very memorable stay on our sons birthday. Blessings to you and Mike always.

    I highly recommend Bears on Fence--very nice hosts, quiet spot that's very accessible, and close to both civilization (a grocery store is nearby) and the wilderness (the hike up Kootenai Creek is amazing). Hope to return!

    Had a fantastic stay at Bears on Fence. Bonnie and Mike were very welcoming and had a lot of good information about the area. Their property is level with good access and our dogs loved to run in the fenced yard. The garden was thriving and beautiful. Stevensville has the true small town feeling and we enjoyed a fun evening with Bonnie and Mike at a fund raiser for a local resident. We highly recommend Bears on Fence.

    Bonnie and Mike were great hosts. They provided info on the area and even some honey berries, which we had never tried. We were there 2 nights, visiting family in Victor. Thank you both for providing a refuge for us and our pup. Our 40 ft 5th wheel fit easily. Beautiful spot.

    Enjoyed swapping travel stories with the hosts. They had great advice on directions, travel ideas, volunteer opportunities, etc. Easy access to the gravel level parking spot with a circular driveway. My GPS gave pretty good directions until the end and I had to go a bit farther down the road after it said "arrived". I was visiting a friend in Missoula so didn't spend much time here. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks for your hospitality!
