We are located about 80 miles north/west of Yosemite National Park, and also about 80 miles south of Sacramento CA, the state Capital. We are on a 21 acre farm, between the towns of Riverbank CA and Oakdale CA. We are located on an unlit county road between Riverbank and Oakdale California. We are beside a local train track, which is used to haul farm produce and lumber, so there will be train noise on occasion. The county road is two lane and paved. Our circular driveway is road base, and the RV space is nearly level cement. There are four homes on our 21 acre farm, each with separate driveways. If your stay request is approved, please refer to the Farm Map image that marks which of the four driveways you need to use to enter the RV staging area. We also have a portable A frame sign with the address 6723 that we will put out along the county road to help direct you to the correct driveway. We are NOT located on or near the Stanislaus River. The BW/HH map may not correctly show our location. We have two Host sites - Oakdale Farm #1 and Oakdale Farm #2. These two Host RV sites are on the same property and only about 100 feet apart. Our #2 RV site is not available during the harvest. Since the exact date depends on the weather and the farmer's schedule, we cannot accept stay requests during the harvest. If you plug into our 30 amp power, please be prepared to donate towards our utilities. You are welcome to use our dump station and also hook up to our well water supply, no donation needed for those items. Guests are requested to respect the private areas of the homes. We have a community park area that we all use for relaxing, watching sunsets, having a campfire, or just socializing with each other. We have several cats, including three barn cats that have free access to all area of the farm to help us control mice and other rodents. If you have a dog, you must keep it leashed when outside. We have a 1/4 acre pond - no guests allowed in the pond area without specific permission, or in the barns. We have 15 acres soon to be planted in peaches, with a 1/2 mile circular road around the tree farm, where guests can walk if the farmer is not actively working with the trees. We are politically conservative and non-compliant, so if that bothers you we will refrain from any political comments. However, we have chosen to not accept the experimental gene therapy "vaccine" and we do not wear masks. If you have been vaccinated with the "covid" vaccine or boosters, you are still welcome but we will refrain from physical contact due to the shedding of spike proteins from vaccinated people, which can be deadly. Suggested Local Attractions:Yosemite National Park, Sacramento, San Francisco, Modesto, Woodward Reservoir, Historic Knights Ferry on the Stanislaus River, Columbia Historic Gold Mine town, Sonora Gold Rush era town, Jamestown Train Museum, many local wineries within an hour's drive. The Stanislaus River is just about a mile north of us. The historic town of Knights Ferry is nearby on the river, and there is a museum of local history about the mill that used to operate there. The exhibits include information about local wild-life and the salmon that migrate up the Stanislaus River from the Pacific Ocean. During the annual migration you can watch them from the bridge over the river. Knights Ferry also has one of the longest restored single-span covered bridges west of the Mississippi. Oakdale has an extensive ranching and rodeo history - the Oakdale Cowboy Museum is a wealth of information about the area. Oakdale has shopping, a summer Farmer's Market, and a number of excellent restaurants.

Location

Access Road Conditions: We require that you arrive during daylight hours, and please contact us about 15 minutes prior to your arrival so that we can walk over from our home to the RV areas to greet you and help you park. Access to our #2 RV site is via a 90 degree LEFT turn from the northbound lane on the county road, into the driveway marked with the address 6723 on the portable A-frame sign, then straight west thru a single farm gate. Then you will have to pull forward and then back up parallel to the barn, all the way back close to the small gate. The power and water will be available at that location, through the small gate. We no longer have any livestock in the barn area. Our farm is bordered on the north side by RR tracks - and you will see and hear the trains that haul grain and lumber to local destinations near Oakdale CA. We normally get only one or two trains each 24 hours. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Unless the RV and tow vehicle are less than 25 ft total - the tow vehicle will have to be parked in a separate location nearby.

host Profile

Hosted By OakdaleFarm

Age:

65+

Retired HVAC contractor and Law Enforcement professional Details: We owned and operated our HVAC contracting company for nearly 30 years in Modesto, CA. We both worked for the Stanislaus Sheriff's Office in Modesto, CA. We also actively manage our 21 acre ranch, where we used to raise cattle and horses and goats. We have recently leased part of the ranch pasture to a professional farmer raising walnut trees. Now we are retired and like to travel in our 40 ft. diesel Safari RV. We are politically conservative and will not comply with mask mandates or experimental vaccines. We have four homes on our ranch - we live in one and friends are tenants in the other three. We are members of the Modesto CA Elks Lodge #1282 and when we travel we often camp with RV friendly Elks Lodges. We're very active members of RVillage.com and manage a group there for Elks and Moose Lodges that are RV friendly. Home Town: Oakdale, CA. Oakdale is a very western town, that hosts a PRCA rodeo each spring. Oakdale is known as "the Cowboy Capital of the World". We are located about 80 miles west of Yosemite National Park, and about 30 miles from the Gold Country pioneer towns along the Sierra Nevada mountains. Woodward Reservoir is a public lake located about ten miles from Oakdale. We are about 12 miles from the much larger city of Modesto, CA, with around 200,000 population. Sacramento CA is about 80 miles north of us. There are many local wineries within an hour's drive. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We did spend about three weeks boondocking about 20 miles east of Quartzsite AZ in January 2019 and enjoyed it so much we decided to invest in a real solar system for our RV. Skills or Expertise to Share: Mike is very knowledgeable about the mechanical and electrical systems of RVs, including a thorough knowledge of electronics and controls. Donna did rodeo photography inside the rodeo arena for 20 years, but no longer is active in photography except as a hobby. We are both very computer savvy and enjoy using our computer skills to connect on line with friends through alternate social media sites, such as RVillage.com and Telegram.org, to manage our farm and rentals, and to navigate when we travel.

    D and M are the kindest and very helpful people with lots of tipps for the stay and journey. The spot is great and basically a full hook up, very impressive :) Thanks so much! Next time we will stay a night more to enjoy a glass of red wine at the fire place!

    The hosts were a wonderful, welcoming couple, very knowledgeable about the area and RV life. The parking was packed dirt, but level, with full hookups available. We would definitely recommend it and stay there again when we’re in the area.

    Not the easiest place to find, but the hosts were out on the road to help find the way in. Great hosts, great facilities. Everything they promise plus kindness and hospitality and a beautiful location. I miss them already, and they are top of my list next time I head that way. As a solo, at times this can make for an awkward threesome, but this couple were both so welcoming and helpful that I felt at ease from the first moment. Looking forward to the next time.

    This was my first stay at a BW host location. The hosts were very communicative and helpful in finding the place (I got lost) LOL. Once there, they greeted me at the driveway and showed me to the spot I would be in (they have two). Then once I was settled, they invited me to have a beverage and some appetizers. After that, we went to dinner at a Mexican restaurant. The farm is gorgeous with beautiful scenery and sunsets. The train tracks are close; but I love the sound of a train going by; so it didn't bother me and they didn't come through too often; mostly during the day and occasionally at night. A wonderful stay and I would definitely return here.
