We have a dog that is friendly with people, not so much other dogs. Cows and chickens can be visited in our presence. Please provide hookup fees before departure. I dont want to have to ask, (yes, I have had to). We have guests often and could not afford the electric bill without your help. We are able to park larger rigs, like motorhome if you detach your towable. Suggested Local Attractions:Here in Council Bluffs we have 3 Casino's, an Old Market area here and in Omaha, 10 miles away. Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha. Shopping, gas (w diesel), restaurants and bars and theater closeby. Great scenic Motorcycling rides and Iowa is a no helmet state.

Close to shopping, restaurants and bars. Omaha NE just across the river with the great Henry Doorly Zoo and the Old Market area. Motorcycle folks, we have beautiful country roads, just miles from our place. We have a nice area for target practicing your pistol, rifle or AR. We request we be home when any shooting takes place for safety of course. We have electric, water and dump station. Home Town: Council Bluffs Iowa, right in the center of the midwest. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We havent done much, but are anxious too. We spent 46.00 plus 8.00 park fee recently at a state park. Not in a big hurry to do that again.

    Jim was very friendly and put us in a nice level spot that allowed us to pull out of. 30 amp service at spot we parked. Allowed us to let our small dogs run on the property so they could get some exercise. Nice country location just outside of town. Weather was cold so didnt get a chance to visit. We would stay there again

    We stayed 3 nights on our way out west and rode out a cold snap with 17 degree temps at night. We actually had 30 amp service which helped keep us thawed. The cable is on the ground by the tree on the retaining wall coming from the outbuilding. We found a level spot in the grass next to the retaining wall. Enjoyed our chat with the host before we departed.

    We had a nice overnight stay just off the interstate. Stayed in a grassy field and somewhat level. Water and Electric available too. We visited briefly with the hosts just after arriving. Very accommodating.
