I just signed up yesterday; however, it appears to be all boondocking, at least in the area I'm interested in (Southwest region).

Boondocking. Must be able to get by with no hook ups. Some allow generator use some do not.

more information on their web site........

FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions


I have used it twice and it was good. Free place to park that lets me put out my slides and patio shade and maybe allows me to use my grill is all I am looking for and it meets that need and more if you like wine tastings.

Excellent program. Waiting on TX Temps to drop before resuming. Don't need to run Gen 24x7

Navychop- How about an update? Long term satisfaction with HH? Seems like a good way to see the sights and visit interesting locations along the way.

We joined/used HH in 2016. Haven't renewed yet, this year. We stayed at lovely wineries and the experiences were idyllic--what a pleasure to literally have a gorgeous winery all to yourselves after the tasting is over and the staff leaves.

The challenge is the number of hosts participating seems to be dropping rather than increasing, at least in our region, Northern/Central California. Locations close, don't get visitors from HH (which is crazy! at one place we stayed, the last HH sign in before us was months prior), or whatever other reason they have to drop out. I'm not sure what HH does to encourage hosts to join but I would think they could/should do more, as the hosts in our region are pretty few and far between, now (my brother is still a member so I've seen the current members' map).

This all said, I think it still is a great deal and offers some really neat experiences. I'll join again at some point, I imagine. Maybe soon if some hosts are near our planned spring break route!

We really enjoy the Wynns videos. Just watched the last oen last week they are a cute couple. Did you see them since they got the boat?

Thanks for the info will check out Harvest too.

I have been a member of Harvest Hosts for a while. I personally like to stay at campgrounds with hookups. I like all the amenities of home and not having to worry about battery life, running out of water, or my black or gray tank filling up. Having said that, my wife and I finally used our Harvest Hosts membership yesterday at a winery in Temecula, California (Falkner Winery). It was fantastic. All of the people associated with the winery were very friendly. My wife is the wine drinking, but I had a great time too. They have a restaurant on the grounds and the food was excellent. It was peaceful and we felt safe. We woke up in the morning to a hissing sound. Walked outside the motorhome and there were hot air balloons around the winery. It was an amazing site. Can't wait to try some of the other hosts...

I started this thread some time ago, and didn't follow thru with membership until just recently. A few weeks ago we stayed at a winery/farm in Merced. They had 50 amp and water at each of their 5 (I think) sites. The parking spot was behind their tasting room out by their Almond Grove. We didn't wake up to hot air balloons, but had a wonderfully relaxing evening. We will try and use the service more in the future. Glad that you had a positive experience.

Does HH cost to be a member? Can you filter for wineries, say in northern CA? We too prefer FHUs, but a pleasant site at a winery, especially one with water and electric, or a restaurant, or both might trump that desire occasionally.

I believe HH costs $99.00 a year.
When we finally get to go full time, will be joining!!
