Description

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 (GA118) between Dawson (on Hwy US82/GA520) and Smithville (on Hwy US19). There are several mostly flat almost level 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.

We currently cannot offer any on site hookups. Please no loud generators. RV generators and those explicitly built as quiet generators should be fine.

None of our sites have WiFi (as indicated) but a new Verizon cell tower has been become operational about a mile to the east.

House Rules

Please . . .
• Clean up after pets
• Leave site in at least as good condition as you found it
• No loud music
• No swimming (human or pet) or fishing (there's no fish) in pond (if it has any water)

Thank you

Access Road Conditions

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. We do not have "improved" sites, mostly open grassy areas. Following a period of moderate to heavy rains we may be forced to decline reservations for heavier vehicles.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Much of our property is open with dispersed trees. The three sites indicated are very generous in space.

Availability

Legend:
Available date.
Unavailable date.
Use the stay request form above to make a request with this host for a given date.

Generally year round. Our sites are grassy areas that become unusable following heavy rains so we may have to decline requests on those occasions. 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.

Location

Bronwood, GA, United States of America

Suggested Local Attractions

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 (Olive Garden, Cheddars, Golden Corral, etc...) and the Pretoria Fields brewpub.

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".

Bob was very welcoming

We were running late, traffic, going the wrong way because the GPS sent us on a wild ride,so we didn't get ther till way after dark. Bob was gracious enough to meet us and guide us to our spot. wish we could have stayed longer, but we hope to make it again. ... Rita and Barb

Peaceful camping 🙂

It's quiet, it's dark, it's private. Hosts are jovial and good conversationalists. And if you like to go to sleep to the music of croaking frogs, this is the place for you! We love it each time we go there!

Peaceful surroundings

Southern Charmed welcomed us at his driveway and showed us where to park. Really nice guy that we seemed to have a lot in common with. We felt safe and secluded though his house was just on the side of a little pond. Slept with windows open to the sound of frogs and crickets. We will definitely stay at Green Dragon Acres on our next trip to the Florida gulf coast!

Almost Heaven

Bob restored our faith in humanity. Just a lovely man who opens his gates to travelers and lets them enjoy his amazing view for an evening, free of charge. He's a Boondocker's Welcome host and he takes the "host" part very seriously. Just little piece of Heaven. ❤

Southern charm

I was greeted by southern charmed with a warm smile and conversation. The area where I parked was flat, grassy and near the pond.
I caught the last days of sunshine of the day sitting and listening to the sounds from the pond. A very quiet sleep.
Thank you for your hospitality.

Extremely pleasant experience

We had such a lovely time here. Bob and Rose were such a pleasure to be around. We felt very comfortable from the minute we arrived. We had great conversations and felt like sitting around with friends. We only stayed one night. We would have loved to stay longer, but had to get on the road early. We truly hope our paths will cross again. Highly recommend!

Peaceful Night & a Multitude of Stars

This was our second stay with SoutherCharmed and we were delighted to be welcomed for our second visit to their home. The property is so spacious and lovely and we enjoyed the last rays of sunshine followed by a lovely crescent moonset. The sky was filled with so many more stars than we ever see at home. Highly recommeded.

Great place with lots of space!

We had a wonderful stay at green dragon acres! Bob was an excellent host, met us when we arrived and showed us to our spacious spot! The kids had a great time seeing some deer, and riding their bikes around the yard! We would definitely come back to stay here in the future!

Green Dragon Acres

We had a nice stay at Green Dragon Acres. The host had us park near the road due to the wet conditions which was perfect. The next day it dried out nicely. We had a great time visiting with our host and sharing stories.

Super Friendly-quiet spot

We had a very quiet peaceful night at Green Dragon Acres. We had a chance to visit and have coffee with Southern Charmed (AKA Santa) in the morning and solved some of the worlds problems...... Hope you both get out on the road soon.

First BW Experience Was Wonderful

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.

ONE OF THE KINDEST HO! HO! HO! MEN & THE SWEETEST LADIES THAT I HAVE EVER MET!

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!

Charming Country Location ~ First Boondock!

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!

Perfectly Magical Night

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.
