Same Day Requests
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.

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 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. He has the equipment to weld almost any metal. Wendy has expertise in kayaking and canoeing and growing a great garden!

This is a great place with lots of room, nice and level, quiet and next to the wildlife refuge. Dave greeted us and directed us back to the big open area within reach of 15 amp service. Wendy and Dave have a lot in common with us! We will probably be back the next time we visit Hungry Generation church.

Dave and Wendy were really great and their home is a perfect spot if you are visiting the Tri-City Area. The lot is plenty big for a large rig and they have a beautiful grass and garden area. Our bull dogs loved the grass and I loved the garden. We would definitely stay with them again.

Dave and Wendy are wondeful hosts. Dave was waiting outside of their property after we had messaged him with a time window of when we thought we would be arriving. Once we go onto their property we were given mulitple choices for locations to park our 20’ trailer. Burbank Hideaway is truly that: Peaceful. Great Views of the Columbia River. Safe. Just prior to our departure, we were encouraged to take some fresh produce from their wonderful garden. We were overwhelmed with tomatos, peppers, cucumbers, onions, tomatillos and garlic. Which will all make for great salad toppings and salsas. The close proximity to the tri-cities allowed us to venture out during our two day stay. We rode our bikes on the bike path along the Columbia River. Visited two local Farmer’s Markets and were even able to get on to a tour of “Reactor B” at the Hanford site as standbys—a tour we highly recommend. This was our first time visiting the tri-cities after living in Washington State for almost thirty years. We will definitely be coming back. And if Burbank Hideway has room for us, we’ll be staying there again. A great experience.
