YNot Winery

Date:  September 5th, 2021

Whalers Rest Campground

Date:  August 22nd – September 4th, 2021
Location:  Salem, OR – Site #
Cost:  Free to us with our Thousand Trails Membership – Full hookups

Very wooded, older campground – kept in great shape. More than a little tight for our 46′ fifth wheel. Friendly and helpful staff. Directly across the street (Hwy 101) from the Pacific Ocean!

Antique Powerland Museum

Date:  August 21st, 2021
Location:  Salem, OR
Cost:  Free with small donation to museum through Harvest Hosts

Cool museum / grounds! They’ve recreated an entire little old town on the property, with many individual museums (motorcycle, tractor, etc). Lots of open area to park for the night!

Crescent Bar RV Park

Date:  August 9th-21st, 2021
Location:  Quincy, WA – Site #
Cost:  Free to us with our Thousand Trails Membership – Full hookups

Very nice campground on the Columbia River. Nice path for walking by the river – and, if you’re lucky, you’ll get to see F15 fighter jets run thu the canyon! Nice side trip to Reindeer Farm and the old town of Leavenworth. Temps were over 100, and forest fires blocked the distant views most of the time we were there. Nice stay – but as close to Todd’s brother-in-law as we had hoped. Stay also dampened by me not feeling well the last few days….

Blackwell Island RV Park

Date:  August 7th-8th, 2021
Location:  Cour d’Alene, ID – Site #161
Cost:  $70/night (tax incl) – Full hookups

Beautiful campground nestled in the shores of Lake Cour d’Alene!  Short drive to downtown and an easy walk to the riverfront.  Nicest weather we’ve had so far – low 70’s with a wonderful breeze!  Not the friendliest people in the area/town.

Diamond S RV Park

Date:  July 25th-August 7th, 2021
Location:  Ronan, MT – Site #204
Cost:  $70.10/night (tax incl) – Full hookups

Nice campground with very nice owners! Was a little further south from Glacier than I planned (1.5 hours), but worked out okay! We would stay here again and would want the same site.

Date:  July 24th, 2021
Location:  Walmart – Butte, MT
Cost:  Free

Just a place to sleep for the night. Taco Bell and Arbys within walking distance. Slept fine and left early the next morning 🙂

Rush-No-More 2021Rush-No-More RV Park

Date:  July 11th-July 23rd, 2021
Location:  Sturgis, SD – Site #201
Cost:  $48.91 (tax incl) – Full hookups

Very quiet, pretty campground.  Had deer stroll by on occasion and had guests come stay for a weekend to ride the area roads.  They used the bathhouse and showers and were very happy with them.  Would want this exact site if we come again.

Pioneer Auto Museum

Date:  July 10th, 2021
Location:  Murdo, SD
Cost:  Free with Harvest Host Membership – No hookups

Snagged the end spot of their large gravel parking lot and had lots of privacy!  We toured the very large display of vintage cars and memorabilia in the morning and had breakfast from their cafe before hitting the road!  Interesting stop!

Eisma Farm

Date:  June 27th-July 10th, 2021
Location:  Maurice, IA
Cost:  Free – Family!

Wonderful stay with family I hadn’t seen it too long (great part about this journey!), and they spoiled us rotten!  Between food, fuel and anything else we needed it was more than we ever expected!

I-80 Worlds Largest Truck Stop

Date:  June 25th, 2021
Location:  Walcott, IA
Cost:  Free – No Hookups

Our first parking lot overnighter!  Not all bad – learned how soundproof our rig really is!  Must be sure to park in an end spot or can’t get the stairs down!

Pine Country Campground

Date:  June 12th-June 24th, 2021
Location:  Belvidere, IL – Site #PTT4 & #PD11
Cost:  Free with Thousand Trails Membership – Full Hookup

Closest Thousand Trails to Illinois friends and family. Extremely accomodating – saved us when Blackhawk canceled our reservation.  Nice campground.

Sycamore RV Resort

Date:  May 31st-June 12th, 2021
Location:  Sycamore, IL – Site #84
Cost:  $42.50/night – Preferred – Full Hookup

Hidden gem that we used as a home base while emptying our storage unit and wrapping up details from selling the house.  Nice place.

Sleepy Creek Vineyards

Date:  May 30th, 2021
Location:  Fairmount, IL
Cost:  Free with Harvest Host Membership – No hookups

Another tricky driveway, but on a beautiful piece of land!  Put our back deck out for the first time and enjoyed the view!  Large gravel lot.

Today’s Harvest

Date:  May 29th, 2021
Location:  New Paris, OH
Cost:  Free with Harvest Host Membership – No hookups

Large, quaint family farm store with awesome donuts, ice cream and knick-knacks!  Large gravel lot for overnight parking.  Yummy stuff and a quiet night!


Date:  May 28th, 2021
Location:  Eaton, OH
Cost:  Free with Boondockers Welcome Membership – $10 for 30 amp hookup

RV had come in sooner than expected – a holiday weekend – and we couldn’t find reservations ANYWHERE!  Drove straight from picking up the RV to our first Harvest Host stop – Camp Rocky Creek!

Challenging driveway for a rig our size, but awesome hosts that provided water, electricity and homemade cookies!
