Description

(RVDump is at State Park less than a mile. I think it's $4)
I'm outside of Somerville Texas, in my 'granny cabin' (aka: Mini McMansion). Have a spot where I just removed my RV, with 30 amp electric (bring your pigtail) and water hose. Trees separate us, private lake at rear. Little bit sloped.

While not a pull thru, I can turn a full circle with my mini van and a 12 ft. trailer. Slight ditch at gate, but no big deal. Pavement ends at gate. Good roads all the way.

Most things are pretty negotiable.

Dogs must be leashed and SANE!
A fenced dog area is available but must be supervised.
Front gate must remain closed.

House Rules

Must show up by 4 PM
No smoking out of rig
No loose dogs
No loud anything
:)

Access Road Conditions

Paved to gate. WATCH OUT FOR DEER the last ? 10 miles cause they're EVERYWHERE. :)

Entry to property thru gate is a little rough but do-able if within my limits.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Small dirt driveway to side.

Quiet night.

Cheryerr’s Flamingo Forest was a nice quiet spot as a gateway to Austin. Do keep an eye out for the deer as we saw more than a dozen grazing up the street.
We had a quiet night followed by a nice visit in the morning.

The perfect host!

Even though this was her first time as a BDW host (her "first rodeo", so to speak), Cherisse has all the right "ingredients" to be a super host .... nice, quiet, semi-rural property with the rig location nicely separated by trees from the house for privacy for both; a friendly, open joviality that made for some great conversation; and a generous heart and spirit that makes me hope we meet again, either on the open road or on the west coast some day. Thanks again Cherisse for your hospitality and friendship.
PS - You're just darned lucky I didn't steal Rusty and take him with me!
