We are located in Burbank, Washington and the property overlooks the Columbia River. There is access to the McNary Wildlife refuge across the road from the property for walking, biking, canoeing, birding, or kayaking. Hunting is also allowed for licensed hunters in the refuge during the open season. Generally, the location is quiet, although a train spur runs below the house so you can hear the train blow the whistle. Due to the elevation drop from the house to the tracks, you can't see the trains, however. Pets on a leash are welcome but should not be allowed off-leash and must be picked up after. Barbecues are OK, but during the dry season may be ill-advised due to extreme fire hazards. Please check with us before starting your barbecue. Generators are OK as well between the hours of 8 AM and 9 PM. Please observe quiet hours from 10 PM until 7 AM. Suggested Local Attractions: Wineries abound in this area for touring and tasting. There are also some breweries and tap houses as well. Kayaking and fishing trips on the Columbia and Snake rivers can be arranged with local guides for in-season species such as sturgeon, salmon, walleye, steelhead, and bass. There are several museums in the area including the Hanford Reach Museum and a planetarium. In the cities of Richland, Kennewick, and Pasco there are miles of biking and hiking trails along the river. There are also cultural events such as Cool Desert Nights and the Tumbleweed Music Festival.

Place pet waste in your garbage or in the garbage can in front of the house. Please, no smoking on the property. Barbecues are OK, but during the dry spring and summer season may be ill-advised due to extreme fire hazards. Please check with us before starting your barbecue.

Access Road Conditions: The access to the back of the property can be made by making a wide turn in the road in front of the house. The road to our house is paved. The only access issue is dodging the telephone box that is adjacent to the gravel driveway to the back of the property. See photos of driveway for details on the telephone box location. If you have a longer RV the best approach to the driveway is from the west on Hanson Loop. You may have to turn around or drive to our house on Hanson Loop from Burbank. Call before arriving for more information. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Tow vehicles can be parked next to or with the RV being towed. Water and power (15-20 amp only) are available for use at no cost.

Active Outdoor Couple Details: We are an active retired couple living in the Burbank Washington area of south-central Washington State. We enjoy camping, fishing, hiking, boating, canoeing, bicycling, gardening, and other outdoor activities. Living where we do we are accustomed to having great local wines and in-season fresh veggies from our garden. We are active campers and have a triple slide truck camper that we use when traveling and tow either a boat or toad with us when we head out. Whenever possible we like to boondock and enjoy the remote areas and quiet spots that often go with boondocking. Finally, our faith is the most important part of who we are and we maintain an active fellowship with the Riverview United Methodist Church in Pasco. We look forward to meeting fellow boondockers who need a safe place to stay Home Town: Our hometown is Burbank, Washington which is about 12 miles from Pasco, Washington. Burbank is in Walla Walla County. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We've found several in Nevada, Oregon, and Utah. BLM land is a favorite for us as are the National Forests and some state lands. Skills or Expertise to Share: Dave is a certified welder and enjoys sharing his skill as a welder and fabricator. I have the equipment to weld almost any metal. Wendy has expertise in kayaking and canoeing and growing a great garden!

The host and hostess at this location in Burbank Washington is ideal for boondockers visiting the area. The host permits one camping unit at a time, and offers electricity hookup. They are avid campers themselves and have a beautiful truck/camper. The host was very helpful concerning local places to visit and gave me several ideas for campsites on my route,

Dave and Wendy were so nice! Generous too! We tried to pay for hookups and they refused. We left with some polished rocks and delicious raspberries from the beautiful garden. The site was perfect, quiet and level. Would love to visit again!

Walla Walla is only a short drive from this great location. Dave and Wendy could not have been better hosts to us during or 2 day stay. Ample space for our 40' diesel pusher and toad. Super glad these folks are part of the program!

Burbank Hideaway was our last stop on our 1400 mile trek to Washington. It was absolutely the best stay we've had with BW even with one day of rain and wind. Dave was very helpful directing us in to the property. Wendy's garden was such a delight to gaze upon during our time there. Very peaceful and quiet most of the time. We enjoyed watching the resident robins and even saw a couple of quail which reminded us of home!
