Boondockers Welcome

Subscription cost: $30/one year, $75/three years

Once you’ve purchased a guest subscription, you’ll be able to request stays with any of the hosts. With over 1000 hosts and more added every day, you’re sure to make some great friends while saving a few dollars on your adventure.

Read the details of the hosts that are on your route, including the size of the rig they can accommodate, their general availability, and recommendations from other RVers. See what sort of services they can provide (many have electric hookups, some even have RV dumps) and what uses are welcome on site (some have space for slide-outs and barbecues, others are more limited in space).

Once a host has accepted your request to stay and you have all the necessary driving directions, you will be able to arrive at their location knowing you have a safe, legal, free place to stop for the night. At the end of your stay, consider leaving a token gift – something small, but appropriate. If the host has offered an electric or water hook-up, offering a small amount of cash to cover their costs is always appreciated.

Harvest Hosts

Subscription cost: $49/year

Harvest Hosts’ goal is to provide fun, worthwhile experiences for self-contained RVers and Hosts alike. The invitation to visit overnight is a special opportunity and you’ll meet interesting people and enjoy wine tastings, farm tours and museums.

Please remember though, that the Host locations are not campgrounds and their property, work and privacy should be respected.  You are requested to review the FAQs and the Harvest Hosts Code of Conduct before joining.

In order to participate, you need a qualified self-contained RV as Host locations do not provide any hookups or services such as bathrooms. No tent-trailers, outdoor kitchens or tents of any kind are allowed.

Overnight stays are limited to one night and you must call ahead and arrive during business hours. Proof of membership and registration upon arrival are required.

Harvest Hosts encourages all RV Members to support local economies by making purchases from their Hosts. When considering how much to spend at a Host, please be generous and keep in mind what you are saving by not staying in a campground.  We suggest spending a minimum of $20 in support of your Host.
