host Profile

Hosted By Kat_and_Dale

Age:

65+

Active outdoor enthusiasts Details: After enjoying tent camping for 35+ years we bought a tiny 4x8ft teardrop camper and loved it. For retirement we bought a larger unit and travel during the summer and sometimes also winter months. Enjoy hiking, biking, birding, kayaking. We look forward to meeting fellow boondockers we host [we are Ultra Hosts] when we are home, and hosts we stay with along our travels. Our favorite place is the next one we visit!

    Dale & Kat are fabulous hosts who welcomed us onto their wonderfully situated property for the night. Having electricity was a bonus to the quiet night & perfect suggestions for coffee nearby in the morning & itinerary for our day’s exploration! We would totally stay again & hope they will look us up when they come to WA State.

    Katt & Dale were super. Communication was great. Dale helped us park and supplied hookups. Restaurant and attraction suggestions were excellent. Safe quiet place to park and nice visit. Would be happy to stay again.

    Kat and Dale were a delight to stay. A wonderful couple that made our stay a delight!!! Easy communication, good directions, great quiet location right on our intended route. They were a delight to visit and chat with. We wish them all our best and hope that our paths cross again. They have 30A service for a nominal fee but we did not use it.

    Kat and Dale were great hosts. They were very friendly and informative of the area and places to visit. I had to change my chasis battery out and they were kind enough to lend me a tool I didnt have. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Kat and Dale until we meet again.

    Communication via the app was quick. my navigation took me past the drive and Dale was kind enough to walk down the street to meet me and guide me to my parking spot. Kat and Dale are very nice and let me know where all the sights were. I stay two nights and was able to explore many beaches and cute towns in the area. 30amp electric hook up was $10 a night, easy parking for my 25” class C and addtional parking available for my tow vehicle. no problem popping my slide and using my awning. Also pet friendly! Thanks Kat and Dale.
