We were going west to Des Moines then south. This stop is a good loop around the city. Friendly hosts and they gave us tomatoes.

This was our first Bookdockers experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a lovely flat shady quiet spot, easy in and out, and they even provided electricity for us! A very interesting couple with lots of experiences to share. And garden fresh tomatoes! We are now Bookdocker fans.

our hosts were cordial and have a nice, level area we were able to pull through. We all enjoyed evening conversations about those things we all love. We left refreshed and well rested.

Ron and Gaye were wonderful hosts who communicated so great. We got a message the day prior stating that there was construction and directing us, turn by turn, on an alternate route. They didn't let us down! We had a great visit the next day and we appreciative of their hospitality. We definitely hope to see them down the road!
