We have a 6 acre homestead between Fort Worth & Azle, Texas. Nothing fancy, but it's mostly quiet and somewhat secluded on a dead end road outside the city limits. We can usually host for a night or two, sometimes longer. There are a few different spots to park depending on RV size, and what's going on around the farm, some are close to water faucets and/or 15A electric, others aren't so we'll need to communicate ahead of time to make sure you know what to expect. Quiet generators are generally okay as long as you're considerate of quiet time. An inside pet is okay, but we can't risk it getting out without a leash due to our own animals. Between spring and fall we have a 12,000 square foot garden that takes most of our time, but we grown some great produce without ANY harmful chemical fertilizers or insecticides.
Please don't roam the property or visit the animals unannounced, it's a farm so there are some general safety concerns to talk about first.
Most rules are common sense such as picking up after yourself (no cigarette butts), staying in designated areas unless we've gone over farm safety, not creating noise after 9PM, and no outside fires without approval.
We are about 3 miles from a 4 lane highway (HWY 199), but the last mile has some sharp curves. No problem as long as you keep it under the posted 30MPH and watch for people taking the curves too fast. There is also a steep dip that we don't attempt to cross when there is ice (a few days a year).
Next to rig
We work around the house/farm most weekends but do travel some so it's best to plan ahead.
Within 5 - 10 miles, Eagle Mountain Lake, Lake Worth, Fort Worth Nature Center. Within 10 - 20 miles, Fort Worth Stockyards, Botanic Gardens, Downtown Fort Worth. 30 - 40 miles to Arlington which has theme parks, ball parks, stadiums...
We loved out visit with Sarah and Sam. We found just the respite we needed on their sweet quiet property complete with chickens, ducks, goats and a couple of nice dogs. Their dedication to growing healthy clean veggies was right up our alley and we enjoyed the personal tour and info about the area. They even gave us a dozen freshly gathered eggs! These two are very interesting and just nice people. Even though it is very close to Ft. Worth we felt like we were way out in the country for a well needed relaxing evening. How nice to be awakened by the rooster before we got on our way!
Sam and Sarah were fantastic hosts. They ensured that a spot was ready for our rig, but our favorite part was being treated with such hospitality. The fresh eggs are delicious! They have an active farm and it was a joy to hear about it. We even got to meet their family! Thank you Sam and Sarah!
Sam and Sarah were excellent hosts!! They were quick to respond when we requested to spend the night at their Boondockers location. They were also very flexible and fantastic when our plans changed a bit. Upon arrival, they greeter us and helped us get parked. Then, they gave us a lovely tour of their organic farm and animals. We had a delightful time! They even gave us a dozen farm-fresh eggs! How generous is that?! We had a wonderful night of rest before we continued our travels the following day. They both came to say goodbye and wish us well. Definitely contact them to stay if you're passing through the area. It's an excellent experience :)
Sam & Sarah's home and property is quiet, spacious and easy to access. Quick response to my inquiry. Helped me to my spot and friendly greetings to their home. I would definitely stop by again if I am in the area. Thank you for being part of my adventure. First time using Boondockers Welcome. 👍
