The Real Difference Between Harvest Hosts and Boondockers Welcome and Why You Should Consider Both for Your Next Road Trip

In June we added Boondockers Welcome to the Harvest Hosts family. And in October we merged the two platforms so that Members of both communities could see all 5000+ Host locations on one, easy to navigate, map. We still have Members that are solely on one platform, which is still an option, and realize that each community is different. Harvest Hosts may not be the perfect camping style for our Boondockers Welcome Members and vice versa. Each program offers its own unique experience and perks for your next road trip, so we thought it might be helpful to explain the differences between the two programs in a quick rundown.

  • Harvest Host gives you unlimited overnight stays at 4000+ wineries, farms, and other small businesses
  • Boondockers Welcome gives you unlimited overnight stays at 3000+ private properties

Harvest Hosts

Harvest Hosts provides unique experiences for RVers while supporting independent growers and attractions. Support local businesses, enjoy farm-fresh products, drink some wine, have some beer, explore museums, visit roadside oddities, play a round of golf, and stay at any of our stunning locations across the continent with zero camping fees! The annual membership gives members unlimited access to stay overnight at any one of our 2500+ Host locations.

Boondockers Welcome

Boondockers Welcome provides Members the ability to access 3,000+ locations where Hosts invite travelers to spend up to 5 nights on their property. Enjoy truly unique stay experiences often without any sacrifice to comfort as 75% of Boondockers Welcome Hosts offer hookups. You can even check out all of our Host locations prior to purchasing a membership!
