Friendly Stones

I found a painted rock at Twin Fountains RV in Oklahoma City, then later I found another. I left the second at Wagon Master RV park by space #70 but it was still there when we left – and someone even moved the rock so it would be more visible. I liked this idea so much we started leaving stones.


We left some more rocks around Lake Athens RV and Marina – the penguin and the beetle.

These were left at Colorado Landing, Hedgehog, Puppy (2), and one with the park name.

I touched up all my stones at Colorado Landing.

I left these in Space 34 at Waggin Tail when we left.

I painted quite a few rocks at Waggin Tail RC Ranch, but the sun faded them.

This Bird was also left at Colorado Landing:

I received an IM from Michelle C, my flower was found in the Colorado Landing Bark Park.

This was left in one of the two Bark Parks at Colorado Landing:

I found this one at Santa Fe de Rancheros, and re-homed the little whale at Colorado Landing:

I left two at the Red Barn RV Park in Roswell, one was found by Beth Smith and posted on Instagram.

This large one was left at Cheyenne KOA.

I did this one at KOA in Billings MT and left it adjacent to our site.

I painted a rock from alongside the Beaverhead River, and left it in Dillon MT at Beaverhead River RV Park.

I ran out of friendly stones, and painted a second batch.

“Puppy” was left in Idaho Falls at Snake River RV Park.

“BumbleBee” was left in Green River UT at the KOA.


This was the one we found in Oklahoma City, it was left in Grants NM KOA Journey.

I redid my “first rock.” This one was also left at Grants KOA Journey – and was found!! Here’s their picture – read more in the comments below.


“Be Kind” was found at Oakwood RV resort, it was dropped in…Lake Arrowhead State Park.

As it turned out, I wound up starting over – and so repainted this one. Here are the ones I’ve done so far, if you find one I hope you’ll email a picture to us and we’ll post it!

“Flower” was dropped in Brownwood at Riverside RV Park.

My little dog was dropped in …Oakwood RV Park, Fredericksburg TX.

These are in the “queue..” Stay tuned!

I liked this idea so much I bought some stones and paint. I’m certainly not an artist, this my first one.

We hid this one at Wagon Master RV. This was the second stone I discovered at Twin Fountains.

This was my next painted rock to find, I have been hunting for a place to hide it. I posted it on FB RV’ers Rock, and corresponded with the person who painted it. She and her husband were both cancer survivors.

These were found at Colorado Landing in 2020 and moved:

  1. We found one of your painted rocks. At Grants KOA Journey in Grants NM. It will be making its way to the San Joaquin Valley in California. How do I post a picture?

  2. Great, if you send me a picture of the you found, I’ll post it (also when you leave it if you like)!

  3. My daughter found your rock with the orange flower on blue background at Colorado Landing RV park in La Grange, TX. It will be out of rotation for now, since she said she wants to keep it (as she hugged it). 😉

  4. I found your Roswell rock at the Red Barn and left it at the Sunflower Camp in Tubac, Arizona.
    I posted a picture on my Instagram
