Age:

65+

Retired Chevy Dealer Details: I am a retired Chevrolet Dealer and my wife Sally is a retired educator. We enjoy Road Trek'ing the entire country visiting family, friends and former shipmates. Our Black River Falls home is actually located about 1 mile off I-94, out of town on highways 12 & 27 north. We have 31/2 acres of heavy forest which comes with lots of privacy and tranquility and an occasional deer walk through. It great for sitting around the fire-ring anytime of day. Home Town: Black River Falls, Wisconsin is located just off I-94 mile markers 115 and 116. Our population is about 5500 if you include the Town of Brockway, just across the river. Located just 3-4 miles east of town is the Ho-Chunk Casino on highway 54 east. Skyline Golf course (18 hole) is right adjacent to town and has a very nice and modern club house with bar, restaurant, and pro shop. BRF also has a very nice lighted runway airport about 2 miles south of town on hwy. 27. The Lunda Cummunity Center offers an indoor swimming pool, water park, physical fitness room, indoor walking track, Senior Center and much more. The community also has numerous churches represented. The Black River runs through Black River Falls and if you enjoy water skiing it is one of Wisconsin's best kept secrets. We do have multiple grocery stores including a Walmart, and a full service hospital, Black River Memorial Hospital. For the gun enthusiast. we have Moe Hardware, Moe's carries one of the largest inventory of firearms in the state of Wisconsin. Oh yes, Jackson county is considered the Deer Hunting Capital of Wisconsin (but NOT in town). Wazee Lake offers much for the scuba diver. Scuba rental equipment and training is always available at the Wazee Sports Center. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We have enjoyed camping the entire northern section of the United States as well as southern Canada. Skills or Expertise to Share: As a former auto dealer I have some knowledge of mechanic's but make no promises. I enjoy woodworking thus have numerous power tools. Sally is an enthusiastic "quilter", just give her a sewing machine and she is very happy.

    This place worked out great for me, Bob and Sally are wonderful hosts and we had a great conversation sitting around a campfire one night. Bob was gracious with electric and water and I was very happy there.

    This is a little gem of a place to spend an overnight! Quiet and peaceful, and Bob and Sally are wonderful hosts. Had a relaxing evening chatting by the fire and a restful night’s stay. Would highly recommend if you are passing through in Wisconsin!

    We had a lovely time talking to Bob and Sally by a campfire. If we pass through WI again, we will try to have another stay here.

    Lovely area, secluded, but not so you don't know civilization is near. Bob was helpful and an interesting man. He help get us settled during a down pour; getting soaked in the process. Soooo appreciated!!!. Our connection was the Healthcare field. A very nice host and spot along the way. We went wine tasting and shopping in many towns in the area. Fall is fast approaching. Beautiful country views.
