We are located just outside the city in a quiet location. We have a half-acre with a space to park a smaller RV, van, or truck camper. While the drive is paved, the parking spot is gravel. Since we are in the country, there are lots of places to walk a dog, and we ask pet owners to use the country road for dog walking instead of our lawn. Water is provided May through October and power is provided year around. Note that our space will only support at total length of 25 feet (tow rig plus RV). No RV dump is available on the property, but a free dump spot is available nearby. Suggested Local Attractions:Walla Walla has become one of the finest wine regions in the area, with over 120 wineries to visit. While we are not knowledgeable in wines, many people visit our valley to do wine tours. We are 4 miles from downtown Walla Walla, which has many fine restaurants, that might be unexpected for a small farm town. Walla Walla is also less than 30 minutes from the Blue Mountains which have lots of outdoor adventure options. Visitors enjoy hiking, trail running, hunting, x-country skiing, downhill skiing, and 4x4 exploring near town. Our area has mild weather that doesn't get too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter. We rarely have snow that stays in the ground.

Active Outdoor Couple Details: We love to travel, especially for adventure activities. We enjoy hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, and offload travel and skiing. While we don't get long periods of time to travel due to our busy schedules, we love to adventure on the weekends. Home Town: Walla Walla is a quiet farming town, with lots of great restaurants and wineries to visit. We are located near the Blue Mountains which also offer lots of outdoor adventure activities from hiking, skiing, hunting, and 4x4 exploring. Favorite Boondocking Locations: The desert Southwest is the best location for boon docking. Not only are there many thousands of square miles to explore, but there are countless canyons, trails, and rocks to explore. And... the sun shines most of the time! Skills or Expertise to Share: I am an engineer, and I love to talk about electrical systems and solar power!

Wine Country Living was a great location to use as home base for visiting all that Walla Walla has to offer. It’s only a few miles from the downtown area, yet you feel like you’re in the country. Quiet neighborhood to take a walk at the end of your day. Host was very responsive to questions prior to our arrival and greeted us when we arrived. He gave us some excellent recommendations for places to eat and sites to see. The spot was nice and level and easy to pull right into.

The host was very helpful to get my RV set up with water and electric, an unexpected bonus! He recommended an excellent Greek restaurant nearby. The space was level and easy to park my van in, and the chicken came to visit in the morning. Very nice stay!
