    Such quick and welcoming response by these hosts! Chris and Mary were quick to welcome us to their lively town. The most friendly hosts we have had! Chris shared history of his town and opened their spot to us after a long day of travel. Clearly outstansing ambassadors for their community and Boondockers! Thanka to them for a most wonderful and memorable stay!

    This was our first time boondocking and Dorothy's Backyard made it easy for us. We were traveling west and needed a place to stop for the night. With the length of our truck and camper combined we couldn't get into the backyard, so they had us park out front. They were very welcoming and helped us find a good dinner spot. We felt very safe there and got a good nights sleep. Would definitely stay here again!

    We were traveling back East. after many hours of driving we found Dorothy's Backyard. They responded right away to our request. The hosts were extremely nice and helpful. Neighborhood quiet. Level driveway. We got to meet their Dorothy. we would stay here again.
