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 any time. We haven't established a travel schedule yet so we will be home mostly with some weekend trips until I retire in later 2018. 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 late in 2018.
