We live in the small town of Rockton. We have recently been restoring this 1924 Brick Home to its potential beauty. Nice city lot with a decent driveway. 30 AMP Electric available. Traffic is busy during school days at start and finish time, otherwise fairly nice. Suggested Local Attractions:Public pool a couple blocks away and rivers nice for boating and paddling also nearby. Great Homemade Ice Cream at the Dairy Haus (Seasonal). Excellent Pizza at Sam's Pizza. Visit the Rockton Township Historical Society for info on early settlers and old homes. Many good pubs within minutes for great food. Six block walk to small town, river, parks. Not too far from Lake Geneva or Madison Wisconsin. Fontana on Lake Geneva is close and offers a pathway around the lake where you can see some beautiful lakefronts up close.

Enjoy the roads less traveled with my wife (and daughter when she can). Details: My wife and I are both teachers, college and elementary education. We have three daughters, youngest still in High School, middle daughter graduated college as engineer and just married. Eldest daughter graduated college as teacher, married and raising our grandson. Our older kids don't get to travel with us much. It is usually just the two of us and our youngest daughter nowadays. We spend quite a bit of time during the Summer just boondocking at our family cabin in Wisconsin. We enjoy biking, hiking, boating, canoeing, and meeting new friends. 2021 we sold our second 30+ ft RV and downsized to a new 20 ft Little Guy Max Teardrop Trailer. We are anxious to explore even more with this setup! Home Town: Rockton, IL located at the state line of IL and WI. / Almost equal time spent WI at the Cabin. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We had a nice stop coming back from Yellowstone at a place near Billings MT. We have not actually boondocked more the one time so far. We have hosted a couple dozen or more RVers at our home. Skills or Expertise to Share: Enjoy cooking on the smoker. I teach engineering and manufacturing classes. So, CAD, hydraulics, CNC, Robotics. Lots of boating, skiing, wakeboarding, fishing and nonsense. Also love biking and downhill skiing and snowmobiling.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to meet the hosts, but it was easy to find and make myself comfortable. Their backyard is beautiful and serene. I would definitely return if passing through again.

Though we gave short notice we were welcomed, even though the owners were traveling at the time. Great communication and a nice level asphalt driveway with power 4ft away. We stayed one night. Regrettably we never did meet our hosts. Perhaps the next time we come thru. Thankful fot a safe, quiet anchorage.

We haven’t stayed often in “town “ locations but this was a beautiful backyard respite as quiet as any rural setting! the gracious hosts invited us to stay even though they were outof town. We were grateful to shorten an overly optimistic travel route! Highly recommend this urban oasis. Thanks again!

Thank you for understanding our changed travel plans and accommodating us the next night! We had tire problems and just too many miles to cover so we had to cancel our stay but our fantastic hosts were able to let us stay the next night. Very easy for our 22 footer to fit and we had a nice chat and restful evening before traveling on to our next destination. Thank you for your recommendations on where to find 3 Floyd’s at the local market too. So gracious, we truly appreciate you.
