Latest Info on Harvest Hosts & Boondockers Welcome


We've decided to go ahead with our four month trip (July-November)in our 27' travel trailer. Florida-CO-WY-MT-WA-OR-CA-AR-NM-TX-FL.

 

This will be our 4th year to take this kind of trip. We stay in all kinds of places - national, state, local parks,comm. RV parks, etc. Dry, partial and full HUps all OK. We try to avoid Wal-marts, etc.

 

I've read that camp sites of all kinds will be harder to find this year. I'm considering joining Harvest Hosts and/or Boondockers Welcome to expand the possibilities.

 

I've studied their sites, read reviews and prior threads, so I think I have a good understanding of how they work.

 

My question: have any of you used these two sources lately, and have you gotten emails from the clubs on changes during Covid-19?

 

Also, any other tips or comments on these two clubs would be greatly appreciated. Or thoughts about finding spots to stay, both short and longer times (5-10 days)

 

Thanks!

I think it should be extended a few more days for a beautiful and memorable trip.

Anyway, Happy Journey
IN ADVANCE

Harvest Hosts and Boondockers welcome will likely be changing by the day and location. I would call each organization and see what they have to say. Also be aware that what is true today may not be true tomorrow, this pandemic ain't over yet.

I’m a harvest Host (HH) member and based on our last experience (06/18) in Fredericksburg, TX  nothing has changed on the HH side.  The variable will be on the HH business member’s side and the local regulations regarding COVID-19.   When you contact the business member to make arrangements they will tell you if they are open and accepting guest.   

One interesting thing about HH is that basically what your membership buys is a list of HH businesses, contact information and reviews.  Unless you write a review, HH has no idea where you have stayed.  Of the three HHs I have stayed at none of them have asked to see my membership or any other ID.

Boondockers Welcome is host driven. Availability is solely dependent on the individual hosts risk tolerance. Check individual hosts availability calendars along your route. Definitive.

Just to add to your arsenal, you might want to consider checking out Ioverlander.com and Freecampsites.net (as it appears you are comfortable considering dry camping/boondocking). In addition to these as you feel more comfortable, you may wish if out west to add in Arizona Trust Lands, BLM, USFS MUV Maps. There's a ton of folks that have been comfortably going around from NFS to NFS or BLM lands during this whole Covid thing without any issues. In fact there's a Canadian FT couple that are due to finally cross back into Ontario over next few days time. They had been in Mexico approx Nov-Apr, and Apr til now in USA boondocking mainly. Most of them have said apart from a weekly shop with masks on social distancing has been a breeze and never not found somewhere to stay.

Just a few other ideas for you besides Boondockers Welcome and HH. Heck, if anyone in Florida, check out the 5 WMA's for boondocking as well.

Happy and Safe Travels to all.
