Welcome to Pinesong. We are on a secluded property on a private dead-end dirt road, right at the base of a mountain, just east of Columbia Falls, MT. Peaceful wooded environment, horses next door, friendly quiet neighbors. Enjoy the sound of the wind in the treetops, the creek in the woods and the birds. Take a walk and dangle your feet off the foot bridge, into the creek. Availability: If it's not listed as available to book on my calendar, then it's not available to book at this time. Pets: Pets who are friendly towards people and dogs are welcome. Please do not let pets loose on the grounds unsupervised. And bring them with you, do not leave them alone on premises, even in your rv. Local Services: If you are going to resupply at a grocery store, I recommend Super 1 in Columbia Falls. I am pretty sure it has the biggest grocery store parking lot in the valley, and there is easy RV parking while you shop. If you are in need of service for your RV, we have the best place, right here in the valley. Northwest Automotive Fleet Services. (trust me, they do RV's too) They recognize that people bringing RV's in for service may be traveling in them and do their best to accommodate. Suggested Local Attractions: The local favorite is a visit to Polebridge. Glacier National Park, home of Going to the Sun road, is about 20 minutes away. *********************** Note: For those wishing to visit Glacier National Park, I strongly suggest checking it's status prior to making your plans. Most of it is inaccessible by vehicle during the winter and spring, many of the business are closed during this time. Going To The Sun road doesn't open until they have cleared the snow, which typically takes until at least the end of June, and on heavy snow years it can be well into July. They also have a permit entry system, that runs all summer. Please check their web site for current status and information. ************************************************** There are several attractions along the river, including rafting, and helicopter tours. We also have Big Mountain ski area (now known as Whitefish Mountain Resort), along with the tourist towns of Whitefish and Bigfork. Bigfork is home of the Wild Mile, a kayak race down the river. There are also lots of opportunities for hiking in the summer, and skiing and snowmobiling in the winter.
Vehicle Suitability Information
Electric Hookup: 15A
Separate Tow Vehicle Parking
Outdoor Cooking Allowed
Most important rule is to have a great time No smoking anywhere on the property please. Please drive very slowly 10 MPH max on the dirt road so as not to kick up dust in dry conditions. During the summer this area often has active fire restrictions. Please be cautious and aware of any restrictions prior to lighting your BBQ. Do not park on the grass. Please only park on the gravel. I often have back-to-back stays. Please plan on arriving after noon, and leaving before noon.
Access Road Conditions: This is on a private dirt road. There are some overhead branches, however I have managed in a 13 foot rig. For the best parking hang left when the driveway splits, and then at the top of the circle, straighten out and back a short distance toward the garage. I have hosted up to 46 foot Class A's. However, the spot isn't perfectly level, and longer than about 35 feet and leveling seems to be more of a challenge. The space is best suited for class B RV's or anyone that uses blocks under the wheels to level. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Lots of room on the property
Hosted By StormRunner
Love to be on the move. Details: I got my first RV in March of 2014. In the first year I put nearly 30,000 miles on, and I am still loving it at over 100,000 miles! I love the idea of being able to travel and change my schedule without too much effort. And that if I find a great place to visit, I can take a detour and go there. Home Town: Columbia Falls, MT Favorite Boondocking Locations: I am always looking for new favorite places. Right now my favorite for boondocking is a BLM site along the Columbia River near the Dalles. Skills or Expertise to Share: Sidecar Monkey. Yes, the one that hangs off the side at 100+ mph. It's quite a rush! (I am not sure if that is a skill, or just a crazy experience!) I have also raised and milked goats, made various goat milk products from ice cream to soap. I have a bit of experience with efficiency in RV-ing. :)

Pinesong I am a solo fulltime camper traveling in an 18 foot long van conversion I have solar and water on board and can manage without hookups. Communications and directions were excellent. Wendy is a wonderful host, and an RVer. Her property is in the country with a mountain as a backdrop. Glacier Park was closed because of snow when I visited. I stayed two nights in June 2022 I stayed two nights in June 2022

Wendy was a very gracious hostess! We stayed 2 nights, in our 35’ Class A, with a toad. With her directions, it was fairly easy getting in and setting up. She even shared some fresh fruit from her garden! Would recommend this spot if near Glacier NP or passing thru.

We stayed 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed both the amenities and the company of the host! Access to Glacier is very easy, but be sure to check for access to the park as they've had issues with the road and avalanche concerns. We would HIGHLY recommend this boondock to anyone, you will not go wrong!

Wendy was our very first Boondockers Welcome host and we cant thank her enough for making our first time definitely not our last! Her home and the landscape there are picturesque, her property is perfectly set up for boondockers, and she and her dog are the most welcoming of hosts. Our dog loved playing with Storm and we all appreciated how close to town this location is, while also being remote and quiet. You cant bet to proximity to Glacier and Whitefish (cutest town, must visit!)

We stayed at Pinesong for 2 nights. The host was so very welcoming and friendly. We became fast friends! The site was level, quiet, beautiful and close to everything. And then there's Storm....such a sweet dog, we love him!!! We would definitely stay here again.
