We have 7.24 acres with pecan, oak, hickory, and evergreen trees in a very rural area outside the very small "town" of Bronwood. We are up the Bronwood Highway between Dawson (on Hwy US82/GA520) and Smithville (on Hwy US19). There are several mostly flat grassy places on our property. Wet weather which is not overly common may make things messy. Sites 1 & 2 offer a lot of room on which to maneuver and depending on occupancy and ground conditions pull through access/around for smaller RVs. Site 3 with trees would be tricky for a long trailer or 40+' motor coach but doable, no pull through access though.
Bronwood has a run down gas station/convenience store that can accommodate even large RVs with a little maneuvering. The gasoline/diesel fuels are somewhat pricey usually marked up 10% to 15% higher than down in Dawson or Albany.
While we cannot currently offer any on site hookups (maybe water at one site) we can provide an access point to fill water tanks. Please no loud generators. RV generators and those explicitly built as quiet generators should be fine.
None of our sites have WiFi (as indicated) and very iffy if any cell connectivity. WiFi and Verizon cell and 3G data can be made available by sitting near our home on a case by case basis but not commonly denied. We request you ask first if you are wanting to take advantage.
Please . . .
• Clean up after pets
• Leave site in at least as good condition as you found it
• No loud music
• No swimming or fishing in pond (if it has any water)
We are about 7.5 miles off a four lane separated highway (Hwy US-82/GA-520). Access to our property is via moderately well paved two lane roads that require large RVs to be mindful of their lane when encountering oncoming traffic. Our driveway is relatively smooth alternating crushed rock and hard pack clay but has never posed a problem for our personal vehicles which includes a 37' coach with toad.
Much of our property is open with dispersed trees. The three sites indicated are very generous in space.
Generally year round. We haven't an established a travel schedule so we will be home most of the time. Your best bet is to message in advance, at least the day before but if your situation dictates, day of arrival requests will be considered.
Plains, GA is a fifteen minute drive where you can see the hometown and historic sites honoring our 39th president, James Earl "Jimmy" Carter, Jr.
Albany, GA, hometown of Ray Charles is about a half hour drive to the south is the closest "big city" hosting two Walmarts and several big name restaurants.
About an hours drive to the north is Columbus, GA with Callaway Gardens and the National Civil War Naval Museum and Fort Benning with the National Infantry Museum. Also in the same direction is Georgia's "Little Grand Canyon".
Americus, GA with it's Historic Windsor Hotel and Raylander Theater is about 30 minutes northeast and additional half hour drive will take you to the town and National Civil War Prison Camp and Prisoner of War Museum and the Veterans Cemetery at Andersonville, GA.
One of our favorite places is Historic Westville. We started visiting Westville years back when they were in Lumpkin, GA but last year they shut down and initiated a move just outside Fort Benning. The current plan is to reopen mid 2019.
This was our first experience with BW and we were nervous about it. But all these positive reviewers don’t lie. Bob was great to us well before we ever pulled up in his driveway, keeping us informed of the crazy weather going on across the south and what was expected in their area. Once we got there he met us in the rain and guided us to a great spot where we wouldn’t be bogged down. He came in and joined us for a beer or two and then gave us a tour of his Tiffin, which we were very interested in seeing. He is very easy to talk to and gave good insight into the area’s sights. We didn’t get to meet Rosie or Huckleberry as they were unavailable this weekend, but maybe next time. Would love to stay at Green Dragon Acres again.
Late arrival still met with good conversation and plans to return!
Visiting the Green Dragon Acres was far better that I ever expected.
I initially was just looking to delay my upcoming visit to Florida to avoid Hurricane Dorian.
But WOW! It turned out to be so much more as one of my favorite BW Stops of 2019.
I believe that we became real friends & I will definitely be looking forward to a return visit
&/or to see them again during our Happy Trails of upcoming travel.
"Southern Charmed" are both wonderful hosts.
They even allowed me to mow their large yard. Lol
My sincerest THANK YOU!
This was our first major trip from Jacksonville, Florida and our first boondock!. Stayed one night with my two sons and two dogs. We have a 39' Class A with toad. The kid, dogs and I will traveling the US for a year or so and having only driven the RV 4 times, including the trip to their house, I was quite anxious.
Bob was so helpful. As a newbie, I a lot of questions and he was happy to answer them. He even showed me a few things I had no idea what they were for! He even gave me some great suggestions for some upgrades on our coach to improve our experience.
We got to play ball in the field and the dogs absolutely loved being able to roam a bit. Seeing stars again was nice. We even got to hear the horses neigh. No frog chorus for us though.
Just before we left we got a tour of their rig, to see the fish pond (beautiful) and hang out with Huckleberry, Rosie and Bob chatting. We wanted to spend an extra day but our water was low.
Definitely country and off the beaten path but worth the visit! Hopefully we get to visit again!
Hope you guys have a great trip and can come join us fulltime!

There and Back Again with the Blake Clan
Great hosts, great setting. Loved the free frog concert. See you on our return trip
It is a lovely place to stay.
The hosts are very nice people.
Can be highly recommended
Beautiful spacious property, gracious conversationalist, could not be happier! Nighttime recording of frogs and crickets displayed on Kevin Doyle's Facebook page! Thoroughly enjoyed every moment!
We received a warm welcome. Lots of space, plenty of shade from high trees. Had nice talks with host, who respected our privacy also. Yes, there are frogs in the pond; they closed their session at 10 pm.
We can definitly recommend this location.
Rosie and Bob are very friendly and showed great hospitality. Thanks a lot.
Awesome and friendly hosts who made us feel at home... including our big dog Sophie. Many thanks to Huckleberry the Bassett Hound... he is such a friendly, sweet, and adorable guy who allowed Sophie to share his people and place for the evening. Enjoyed socializing and sharing stories with SouthernCharmed and even got a tour of their magnificent coach. When it got dark the night sky was beautiful. Parking was super easy for us and we were afforded the opportunity to select the spot to park... nice! We highly recommend stopping by and paying SouthernCharmed a visit... the name says it all.
My first time boondocking, it was a wonderful experience. Hosts were so kind. Hope our paths cross again. Thank you!.
So pleased to have met SouthernCharmed. No misnomer there! What wonderful hosts. Even brought me an adult beverage and spent time to "talk story". It was a lovely evening. Thank you so much!
We had a great time. Our hosts were very gracious. They will be great friends and we will keep in contact with them.
We had a wonderful time. Very peaceful setting and great host couple I such a tranquil spot
oldSarge and his lovely wife were the perfect hosts! My stay on their beautiful acreage was just what I needed!
Quiet. Easy to access. Multiple "sites" to choose from and friendly,knowledgeable hosts to make friends with!
Highly recommend this sweet space and the excellent people who provided it!
