Quiet beautiful park like setting. We have a 1/2 acre at the end of the road a short walk to Lake Eufaula beaches. Plenty of parking for RV's and the toys in the front yard under a canopy of very tall trees. We have a small dirt area, deck and patio that is fenced for the use of our four legged friends of which we have four friendly golden retriever hosts. RV accommodations are complimentary for boondockers. We do have a small guest house available as a vacation rental.

Both Checotah and Eufaula are about 20 minutes from our place. YOU CANNOT FIND US BY GPS so follow the directions.

House Rules

Dogs rule unless your talking to the cats. There is a danger of flying tennis balls. You get to the lake by walking, golf cart or ATV.

Access Road Conditions

Roads are gravel but flat, in good condition and easy to navigate. GPS does not work to our location, so read the directions carefully.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Easy parking in the front yard with large shade trees.


We are retired and are enjoying our new place in Eufaula, so we are available most of the time.

But in a great way! Glen & Kerry are very special & a sociable couple.
Within minutes of my arrival I was invited into their beautiful home
to join them for spaghetti dinner & a few cold ones.
After my drive through the North Arkansas Mountains & I40,
I was definitely ready for both!
They individual & together have a very interesting life story.
And I truly enjoyed my visit w these gracious hosts at their new home.

Friendliest folk in town

We arrived a day later than expected but were warmly welcomed by the friendliest of dogs followed by their just as friendly owners. No sooner had we exited our vehicle and a cold beer was placed in our hands (it's was a hot day), and great evening on the deck overlooking that magnificent vista followed. Thank you & best wishes in your upcoming move.

Amazing view amazing people

What a great stay. As othets have said driveway is steep but take your time it's worth the view of the lake.thete are Golden Retrievers on property and they are all sweet and well behaved. My propne stove was having problems and our hosts were so helpful and allowed me to use their RV stove. They also let us use their fire pit and even gave us firewood. Our hosts took the time for great conversation but were also respectful of our privacy. I highly recommend this hiden gem and will be coming back.

Beautiful view and great hosts!

We stayed with Kerry for what was planned to be one night and was extended to three nights at the end of November 2017. We were passing between Sequoia National Park and Death Valley, this location was a perfect mid point. We figured we would stay one night and keep going, but we loved exploring the area and we had a great time chatting with Kerry and Glen, and meeting their awesome dogs. We were invited in to do laundry, have showers and catch some NFL on tv. We made great friends with our hosts!
Our dogs had a wonderful time there too, and they miss the ginger retriever, KC, the most because he was the same colour as them and made wonderful furrrrrrriends.
The driveway is STEEP but it is easy to navigate, take Kerry's advice, walk it first, determine your approach and then go for it.
We would stay again should we roll that way in the future!

Great place to stay

We stayed three nights at this boondocker location. Friendly, helpful, welcoming, and offered laundry. We only plugged to watch a movie but did fill our water tank before leaving. We got to be good friends with the dogs and had fresh eggs for breakfast. Shared pizza and wine one night as well. Would highly recommend this host!

Amazing hosts!

We're on the road full time and Shefferk made us feel right at home allowing us a hot shower and a couple loads of laundry. The hospitality didn't stop there. We shared some drinks and had a great time getting to know them. Hope to see these guys again when they make it to Florida!! And all the dogs better come too!! ;)

Very accomodating

Stayed recently with Shefferk for our very first Boondockers Welcome experience.
Couldn't have gone better. She is a lovely person who went out of her way to make us welcome, the spot to park our rig was great, even ran a power cord out for us so we could hook up. Highly recommended.
