The Harvest Hosts are, first and foremost, wineries/farms/museums and do not provide the services that you would find at a campground. However, a small number of the Hosts do offer electricity or water. This will be listed on the Host information page and may include a charge.About 70% of Boondockers Welcome locations do offer hookups. Hosts may ask to be compensated for costs if a guest chooses to use any provided hookups, as long as free parking without hookups is always an option. Hosts are encouraged to include their expected compensation in their house rules, but these must be reasonable and only cover costs.
All classes of RV’s are allowed (Class A, Class B, Class C) including motorhomes, fifth wheel trailers, travel trailers, toy haulers, camper vans, truck campers, and schoolies. Vehicles towed behind RVs are also allowed at our Host locations. Traditional pop-up campers, otherwise known as folding camping trailers, where the middle and sides of the trailer pop up and out, are prohibited.
Tents, such as ground tents or car rooftop tents; sleeping in cars, trucks, or minivans; overlanding in jeeps, bikes, or atvs. We do allow hybrid (expandable) travel trailers where only the bed areas pop out, but the rest of the trailer is composed of four rigid sides. We allow camper vans where the bed area at the top of the van pops up (but again, the rest of the van has four rigid sides). We allow clamshell and teardrop trailers, but their outdoor cooking facilities may not be used while on Host properties (see below). Important: All camping vehicles must be fully self-contained.Your RV must have an interior toilet and built-in holding tanks or bladders for waste water. Porta-potties that remain inside the vehicle at all times are acceptable, but must be dumped off-site at an appropriate facility. The dumping of gray water on Host properties is prohibited. You may only use your RV’s indoor cooking facilities at Host locations; the use of any outdoor cooking facilities is expressly prohibited.
Harvest Hosts is set up as an overnight program with stays of a maximum of 24 hours. At your Host’s discretion, he/she may invite you to stay an additional night but we discourage multiple night stays as to not “wear out our welcome.”A stay length for a Boondockers Welcome Host varies depending upon the Host. Some Hosts offer one night, while others offer a maximum of five nights. Guests are restricted to a maximum of 5 nights in a 90-day window with the same host, for insurance purposes. This can be one 5-night stay if the host offers that many nights, or several shorter stays.
CampScanner is a membership program that offers discounts and perks at hundreds of campgrounds across North America.An RV or camping vehicle is not necessarily required. Each campground will have its own requirements, but either an RV or a tent will be required at most Member Campgrounds.
