Outdoor Cooking Allowed
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.

Rockey's Roost is highly recommended. We arrived late in the day to a sweeping valley of lush farmlands, nearby mountains, and a spectacular view of snow-covered Mt. Adams in the distance. Access was easy. We parked on a slight slope and leveled up the RV very quickly by putting riser blocks on one end. Rockey was a wonderful host, stopping by after we'd gotten settled to share a great conversation. The night was quiet and star-filled, punctuated by the occasional pht-pht of distant sprinklers. On our way out the next morning we stopped by Roza's Cafe for breakfast - an excellent recommendation from our host. We loved the entire experience!

Rochelle is a very personable host, i.e. very likeable person. Went out of her way to give us info about the area. The views from the parking spot are panoramic and sweeping. We were in a 29 1/2 ft motor home and the site was sloped. I used about six inches of levelers to be level, the only drawback of the spot. We were going to stay for three days but a forecast of rain and my wife caught my cold we only stayed one night. Hope to visit again and stay longer.

A nice one-night stay! Great moutain views. Met Rochelle who is a cheerful host. Parking spotElectric was available but far from the parking spot. Rochelle offered an extension cable, but we are reasonably experienced dry campers so did not use.
