No smoking and no wood/charcoal fires. This is the high desert and my home is cedar-sided. Wildfires are easily set. Please respect the safety of my community. You may use propane fire rings in the yard on the opposite side of the pond from the house. There is a fenced-in yard where you can let your dog off leash. Please pick up after your pet. If your dog is a cat killer, please be sure to keep them on leash as I do have farm cats. If you want to use electric or water, you will need a 50 foot extension cord and/or hose. The connections are not right next to the parking spot. The electric is 15 amp. The water is filtered well water, not city water. Water is not available October through March to avoid frozen pipes. There is a dump site for your RV waste at the WSDOT Prosser safety rest area, approximately 5 miles from Rockey's Roost.
Access Road Conditions: I am on a paved country road with a 1/4 mile gravel driveway. You will need to navigate around the circle, which I do quite easily towing my 20-ft travel trailer with my 16-ft SUV. My friend has driven around the circle in his 30-ft motorhome. The spot is on the circle along the fence between my front yard and my farmland. Park by the small "Welcome to Camp" sign. Please don't drive on the lawn in order to preserve my irrigation system. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: The spot is long enough to park the tow vehicle with the camper. If you can navigate the circle, you'll have plenty of room to park.

Pacific Northwest Camper Details: Busy professional that loves getting away from work by exploring the Pacific Northwest. I love meeting new people and experiencing new places. Home Town: Prosser is the birthplace of Washington wine. The town is home to approximately 7,000 people. We have 30 wineries, two breweries, and two marijuana stores. If you can't be happy in Prosser, you can't be happy anywhere. Favorite Boondocking Locations: Wineries. They always know everything about the area they are in and are a great place to meet other travelers. Skills or Expertise to Share: I'm a foodie that loves wine (or I'm a wino that loves food, some days I'm not sure which) and I'm happy to talk about either. Getting in to kayaking and hiking and would like to learn about your favorite places.

The directions provided were pretty good! we used google maps to locate the property and followed the directions in the profile and got a bit lost. We also came during a snow blanket at night which didn't help! But we were able to find the spot after taking a look at some provided photos on the profile! Thanks again for the host!

This is a peaceful, beautiful spot in the heart of wine country, overlooking Horse Heaven Hills. I enjoyed a beautiful sunset. Rocky was friendly and very communicative and I loved my chat with her. She is very welcoming. There is a slight slope so you may need to level your rig, and bring an extension cord to reach the 15 amp electric.

We have a 30' trailer, pulled by a 21' truck. We made it around the circle, but it was tight and I did cut into the grass with the back wheels just a little. Anything larger will not make it. Rocky was easy to communicate with and was very welcoming! The spot is level enough and we had a very comfortable, quiet night. The stars were amazing. We do not recommend the dog park that comes up on Google maps, it is more of a dumping area than anything else.

We were warmly welcomed to this lovely part of Washington. After a 3 year break from traveling to the US and preparing the rv for the road,, we were in need of a couple of days rest and Rockey gave us that opportunity. Many thanks.

This stay was amazing! The directions were easy to follow and there is a large space that is easy to navigate and clearly marked with a cute little sign for where to park the RV. Rochelle was an amazing host! The communciation was prompt and she even provided recommendations of her favorite wineries to check out. The views of the hills and Mt. Adams was stunning. We enjoyed the spectacular sunrise and sunset colors! If we weren’t on a timeline we would of loved to book multiple days. There was also a space for our labrador to run around :-)
