Although can not provide electricity to all. Generators are ok with us but depends if there are other campers present. There is water available to fill you tanks. Quiet, surrounded by farm crops.

House Rules

No fire except in our fire ring. Firewood is usually available. Please arrive and set up during daylight hours. But stay up as late as you want...maybe we can visit around the campfire. Enjoy the sunrise, sunsets, quiet nights, stars and of course the fireflies.. It’s a given....Be respectful to us and other campers.

Iowa Country Living Details: Mike and I have been RVer off and on for many years. We recently bought a 2011 Raptor Toy Hauler to haul our ORV, Smart Carfortwo or Harley Trike. Hope to do some boondocking this fall/winter. Love meeting folks with the same interests Home Town: Newton Iowa Favorite Boondocking Locations: We have camped in several western states but have not boondock. We hope to start boondocking when we are more comfortable and/or we can hook up with some fellow boondockers. Our favorite state is Utah where we ride the trails with our S x S. Skills or Expertise to Share: Mike has a woodwork shop. And was a Mechanic. Might say he is a Jack of all trades...smile

    This was the BEST BW experience yet and I've had several great ones. It was a fantastic location for me as I attended the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines with family. The hosts were super helpful and I so enjoyed our visit under the shade of their tree one morning. 💖

    This was our first Boonedockers Welcome stay. Our hosts were a joy to talk to. We will most definitely go back to stay with them again. Beautiful back yard and wonderful hosts!

    Iowa = Good people. I mean THE BEST! A great stop along our journey. “We don’t meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our paths for a reason.” Thank you again for a safe, comfortable place to stay on our journey.

    I've stayed with lots of Boondocker's hosts, and they have all been wonderful, but this stay was the best yet! The hostess was beyond welcoming. We had a great time chatting and discovered we had both traveled to Tanzania and Machu Picchu! I really enjoyed the hosts' genuine warmth and hospitality.
