    He is sweet and treated us like family. Large yard and toys for our four children to play with. Large shade tree covered our camper and vehicle and was pleasent to relax under.

    What a great relaxing overnight. Super patient communication so we connected at the best spot to drive-in. Waved me on and I parked in a lovely green mowed field. The corn next door was so high, I parked so I was shaded by it. Perfect solo traveler spot. It felt so much safer than your standard campground. Heard turkey and an owl and the chirpy sand pipers hopped about looking for dinner on the other side of the field. This is what boondocking is all about!

    This was our first boondocker stay, and it went great. Host was very accommodating and site was level and easily accessible. Had a short chat as we arrived late, but went out for a spectacular view of the stars right before bed. Definitely recommend if in the area. Thanks!
