This is a working farm located on the oldest road in Florida. We mostly produce round bale hay in the summer months. The land is a mixture of pastures and woods.

All pets are welcome. No leashes required. We have no fences so you are responsible for keeping your critters from running off. You can bring horses, dogs, cats, pet elephants or whatever.

A dump station is available. A water faucet is available so you can fill your onboard fresh water tank.

House Rules

We offer a very roomy camping area that is away from our home. It gives the campers some anonymity and freedom to do pretty much any activity. If other Boondockers are present, please communicate with them and be good neighbors.

Our setup makes some of the "Courtesy Contract" items non-applicable: We do not accept compensation, you may request a longer stay, you may arrive anytime - if it is after hours you will be on your own but the drive to the camping area is well marked, we consider it none of our business if you leave on day trips or stay - come and go as you please, we provide a trash can and you can dump your grey water, wandering pets and wild kids are not our problem - just keep them away from the house and barns, when leaving some people will stop and say goodbye and thank you and some just wave as they are heading out the gate - it's all good.

We love sharing our farm with you. That is our compensation. We expect nothing in return.

Access Road Conditions

We are less than 10 minutes from interstate I-75. Paved roads to within a country block of the farm and then a lime rock road to the farm's main gate. It is no problem for our tag axle 43-foot diesel pusher motorhome.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

We have plenty of roomy areas to camp that require no backing in or out. Tow vehicles are not a problem. The pond offers flat ground and a nice view.

Easy and simple

Easy, simple, quiet! Perfect for us !


November 2019

A wonderful place

Beautiful landscape, very large open field. We actually were able to have all four of our dogs run loose for a great run for them. They loved it as much as we did. We will definitely be back again.

Paradise Found

BarnQuiltFarm were exceptional hosts! As many other reviews highlighted, their hospitality was unparalleled. They met us at the front gate on their UTV, showed us to racetrack pond, pointed out the flattest areas to park around the pond, and turned us loose to relax! It was a treat visiting with them throughout our three night stay. The farm was absolutely serene with little to distract you but the local and transient wildlife. We enjoyed basking in the sunshine, a campfire beneath the live oaks, and wandering the trails in the forest on BarnQuiltFarms' property. The property was a short distance to multiple state parks with picturesque hiking and tubing. Thank you again!


November 2019

country oasis

A beautiful, serene stay in the country. plenty of parking options in the field overlooking pond. It rained all night and we were able to walk around next morn as ground is grassy but dry. Close to hughway but no highway noise a plus. level parking.

Live Oak Beauty

What a stunning drive up to the farm under a dense canopy of live oaks dripping with Spanish moss.

Our stay was too short!

Hope to return to have a proper visit at the Barn Quilt Farm.


October 2019

Spacious property w/site overlooking pond, road w/treed archway and classic Spanish Moss greeted us

The hosts graciously met us at the farm gate in their UTV and showed us the recommended parking area overlooking a pond on their scenic Florida farm. Access to the farm was via a well maintained unpaved road with a beautiful (camera ready) treed archway with classic Florida-style Spanish Moss. We stayed one night as we were en route to an RV rally further south in Florida. We had to modify the visit date (16th) to due to a delayed forestry project, which delayed our trip departure, and subsequent arrival, and stay at Emerald Oaks Farm.


July 2019

Beautiful and relaxing spot

Parked by a lake, this spot was the perfect place to spend the night on our way to Colorado. Thank you soo much and hope to see you someday and do some square dancing :)


July 2019

Beautiful location

Was surprised that Florida could be so beautiful. I was really starting to miss the oak trees from back home until I pulled on their road. It was gorgeous seeing the trees overhanging the road.


June 2019

Peaceful Beauty!!

Holy Wowzers! Emerald Oaks Farm is a gem. Your jaw will drop as you drive through the gorgeous old oak trees with spanish moss hanging above you....a perfect instagram post. The farm land was so peaceful and super super quiet. It was amazing to wake up in a field of such beauty. The hosts are such kind hearted folks and made our first boondocking experience wonderful. We hope to be able to come back and stay longer!!


May 2019


We don't expected much for one night after a long drive , but it is a little paradise what is more worth than just a one night stand.


May 2019

Take a Trip Back in Time

The stay began with a ride under a magnificent canopy of live oaks on Florida’s oldest road. The farm was peaceful and we saw our first swallow-tailed kite and Osceola turkey. The hosts were gracious and informative about the area.


April 2019


Second time staying. Great Spot to relax and unwind after a swimming day at the nearby springs. Thanks again. Ken and Holly


April 2019

Beautiful place

Great hosts, beautiful farm location. This was our second time here, we hope to be back on our next trip to Florida.


April 2019

Rest on the farm

Absolutely beautiful farm. The hosts were such a delight. We felt extremely welcome and were given some time to rest.


April 2019


Directions were very easy to follow. When we arrived Bill & Deb were greeting some other boondockers. We were instructed where to set up and where all the ammenities were. We located ourselves near the pond. Talk about tranquil. We had a fabulous evening socializing with our new boondocker friends. It's wonderful that our hosts share such a beautiful spot. Thank you. Ken and Holly


April 2019

Paradise found!

What an amazing first introduction to BoondockersWelcome. Gracious hosts, beautiful setting and we were lucky to have another wonderful boondocker family there at the same time. Hopefully we’ll get to come back soon


April 2019

Lovely experience

I had such a lovely visit at the farm I extended it!...

The hosts are lovely and accommodating and also just allowed me to come and go as I pleased...which enabled me to pay attention to studying and webinars I am involved in...

I was invited to another square dance, and even had an offer for a car wash by the host....

The morning I departed, the hostess met me with a lovely bag of fresh from the garden herbs and arugula...we had a lovely conversation and found even more things in common with each other...

This farm is definitely a small piece of heaven which is so graciously shared by a lovely couple...Ill keep it on my list of places to return to!...

Don’t miss it!...


April 2019

Overnight stay

This was our first night boondocking and we had a great experience. Our hosts property was beautiful and set up perfectly for multiple RVs. They were very friendly and we would definitely stay there again.


April 2019

Peaceful farm with welcoming hosts

We spent two days on this marvelous site.

The site was gorgeous, a lot of place, very clean with a pond and very quiet.

The hosts were very friendly ans invited us to a square danse party with there friends. A lot of fun.

Thank you for tour hospitality.


April 2019

Generous host and hostess!...

this is the first place I stayed after renewing membership to BW following about a year or so lapse...

The hosts are warm, welcoming, and friendly...

The directions to the farm are spot on and everything is laid out just as specified for convenient entry, parking and exit...

The hosts stated they want to make everything easy for guests, and they do!...

They even invited me to the lovely square dance they hold in their home, and the dance in a nearby town...

The property is beautiful, peaceful and quiet, with turtles, bullfrogs and peepers in the pond and turkey and deer in the field at dusk...

My dogs loved the freedom of being off leash...

Plenty of sun for solar collection, and shady areas if that’s what you prefer...

This is such a wonderful stay as I meander north after a bit of a stressful winter...very relaxing!...thank you!...

I highly recommend staying here...


March 2019

Paradise in northern Florida

Just a beautiful place to stay. Lots of room. We had what looked to be a couple acres around a pond to ourselves. We were offered water and a place to dump but didn’t need it. Very friendly hosts. I will keep them in mind when heading back north.


March 2019

Lovely lakeside location

We recently stayed for 3 nights and couldn’t speak highly enough. Prior to arrival, we were sent detailed directions to the beautiful spot. It was flat, shady, quiet and ideal for visiting some local springs including Ginnie Springs and Ichetucknee State Park. Bill and Deb were wonderful, kind and welcoming and even invited us to join them and their friends square dancing on two nights! Such lovely and genuine people


March 2019

Welcoming quiet place

Thank you for welcoming us again. We enjoyed your quiet rural homestead.


March 2019


Beautiful spot and great fun square dancing!


March 2019

A great place to stay with wonderful host

This a wonderful place to stay! Beautiful barn quilts, beautiful farm, great friends! Next time we’ll go to Ichetucknee Springs.


March 2019

Wonderful surprise!

This was our first BDW overnite and couldn’t have been more pleased 🤗
The directions were perfect. The hosts welcomed us with smiles and the property was beautiful with tons of room! Would stay here any time! Thank you BarnQuilt Farm!!


March 2019

Amazing property, lovely people, relaxing stay-over!!

The drive up the main road to this wonderful farm was beautiful. The street was lined with great old oaks creating a canopy of branches and spanish moss (no problem with height for the rig), it felt like we were entering a secret garden. When you arrive, you are directed to a wide open field away from the main house, nice and flat, around a quaint pond. There was a fire ring from previous campers already set up which we parked right next to so we could enjoy a campfire. BarnQuiltFarm are two of the most friendly, gracious and welcoming hosts. The field is wide open and can accommodate several campers of any size. If you have solar, you'll enjoy the wide open space, if you want a little shade park closer to the front of the property and the trees will give you some shade through the day. We spent 3 days here and truly enjoyed every moment. A State park was very close by, where we went bike riding and did some photo taking. You can also bring your kayaks and kayak there. We can't say enough great things about this host and their wonderful place. We will definitely return.


March 2019

Wonderful hosts and a beautiful place to stay. :)

We had an absolutely lovely stay at Emerald Oaks Farm! Bill and Deb were so friendly and gracious and their property is truly beautiful. We felt so welcome and at home here--made some new friends and relaxed in the quiet country setting. We would highly recommend a stay!


March 2019

Wonderful !

We had a great stay here and really enjoyed the environment. Bill and his wife were very very accommodating. Chances are great we will come back in the future.


March 2019

Great location, fabulous hosts

We really enjoyed our stay at emerald oaks farm. Our hosts were very kind and we enjoyed the company of the other boondockers here! Thank you

Peaceful Tranquility

We kind of wish we could have stayed longer! Gracious hosts and a lovely setting around a pond. Plenty of room for the four of us who were there together to have our own space and lots of acreage to explore with our off-leash pooch. We would definitely stay here again!

Quiet and peaceful place

Wonderful, friendly and accommodating hosts. Beautiful farm. Plenty of space next to a pond. It is private, quiet and peaceful. Located close to 2 State Parks. There is a bike path not too far from their place which we took to go to Oleno State Park. Great stay!


March 2019

Beautiful place to spend a couple of days

We spent 2 nights at this wonderful spot. Plenty of space beside the trees and next to a pond, with lots of interesting birds. The hosts were great and gave us permission to stay there even though they were going to be away for the night. Only a few miles from Ichetucknee state park, a beautiful place to swim, tube or kayak. Would love to go back at some future date.


February 2019

Amazing property, gracious hosts

We loved our time on Emerald Oaks Farm. Bill and Deb were out of town so we never had the privilege of meeting in person. They were quick to respond to any questions and gave clear directions to their home. The land is beautiful and private. We set up near the pond and had no difficulty leveling. Our children and dog loved the freedom of space to run and play. We will definitely be back and hope to meet the hosts face to face to give them a proper thank you.


February 2019

Excellent Hosts

I did not get to meet these generous hosts as they were out of town. How nice for someone to allow you to stay at their beautiful farm.


February 2019

Awesome 1st Boondockers Welcome Experience!

Our stay was top notch! We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place to park! Our hosts were wonderful! We will see them again in the future!


February 2019

Beautiful Space!

The surroundings were beautiful and there was easy access in and out with our 42' 5th wheel. We were only sad we couldn't stay for the whole time. Our dehumidifier was greatly needed in this climate and it sucked the batteries dry from our solar panels.


February 2019

Quiet relaxing place to park

Welcoming level place to relax. Quiet and dark enough to see the stars.


February 2019

Emerald Oaks Overnight

The hosts are friendly and welcoming and have a wonderful property for RVing. They're located in close proximity to both Ichetucknee Springs and Oleno State Parks.
Well be back for a multi night stay.


February 2019

What more can we say?

It's all been said before. Beautiful farm with lots of space, lots to see and do in a very photogenic area, and charming, warm, friendly hosts! We loved it here and a repeat visit at some point is highly likely!
Even the dog relaxed and looked so content here.
Hoping you come to Ontario some time so we can return the favor and host for you.


January 2019

Wide open space

This place was great! Wide open and lots of space to park around the pond. If you are looking for a quiet and secluded place to relax, then I highly recommend this one.

Thank you so much for allowing us to stop back by on our way to Georgia. It was an encore performance from our last visit a couple of weeks ago. You guys are the best. Please come back to Georgia and let us host you guys sometime.


January 2019

Wonderful stay !

Very peaceful and gracious host


January 2019

We will return!

Although our hosts were away during most of our stay, their directions and other communications made everything perfectly clear. Their access road Is quite beautiful; we took several long walks. We camped by the pond, and happened to enjoy the lunar eclipse...excellent dark skies for sky viewing...and so quiet. This was our first Welcome Boondocker experience...Many thanks to our hosts! Hope to talk with you more during our next visit.


January 2019

Nice HostsNice host

Nice host. We arrived a little late and he was very gracious showing us where to park.


January 2019

Serene location beside the pond

A huge thank you to our hosts. Their directions were very clear and our camping spot was beautiful. There is nothing like sitting outside in the evening beside a pond listening to the bull frogs.


January 2019

Great spot!

This location is really beautiful- peaceful land with a little lake. My dogs had plenty of room to run off-leash. Met other full-timers staying there- always fun to have a neighbor for a few days! :) The hosts came by to say hello, and showed me where the water and dump were located. Very nice people! Stop in here if you have a chance.

Let's Dance!

Our stay at Emerald Oaks Farm was enchanting from the moment we arrived until we departed. Our host warmly met us at the gate, directed us to our site and gave us the lay of the land. --- There is plenty of space to park and turn around. Everything is exactly as described. --- If you enjoy Square Dancing you will certainly want to stay here. We attended two dances and enjoyed meeting others in the community. Our hosts are incredibly warm people. It would be hard to describe our host in a few words. The previous comments speak volumes. We hope our travels will bring us through here again soon. Thank you for the fantastic stopover.


January 2019

Great Location

The Barn Quilt Farm is located in a gorgeous area with easy access to multiple water activities and springs.


January 2019


We had such a fantastic stay at Emerald Oak Farms! The property is beautiful and our kids had so much fun running around, climbing trees and fishing for minnows in the pond! We had some trouble with our slide out as we were leaving and Bill was so quick to hop in the gator and offer assistance. We are so thankful for the hospitality and will definitely return!


January 2019


Our first boondockers experience. We were even taken to a nite of square dancing. What a treat! Wonderful stay.


January 2019

Beautiful farm very sweet couple

We did not end up actually being able to be in our rv durning our stay as we had a death in the family and had to fly out, however these hosts were so gracious letting us park there and even keep our rig there extra days. It was a beautiful quiet north Florida farm :) they had water and septic dump available and they even gave us some delicious apple home made muffins as a parting gift :) thank you guys so much for a wonderful stay, and we will definitely stop back and see you again!!


December 2018

Great boondocking site.

Lovely country setting with lots of space. We got in kinda late and our host were planning a trip in early morning so we didn't get to spend as much time together as we had hoped to. Will definitely try to catch this spot on another adventure though this area.


December 2018

Relaxing spot

We stayed for 2 nights at the barnquiltfarm and could have stayed longer. Located on a field next to a pond at their farm it was so relaxing, the only sounds came from the frogs at night. We had two peacefull nights and would definetely go back there


December 2018

Fantastic Hosts and Expansive Ranch

William and Marsha were very generous in their invitation to camp for an evening in their nearby fields. We were near a pond and the quietness was very restful. We really enjoyed out stay.


December 2018

Peaceful paradise

This was our first boondocking stay. It was AWESOME! The location is so pretty and Bill and Deb were so friendly, kind and accommodating. It was perfect. Thank you so much again!


December 2018


The perfect first boondockers welcome experience, thanks Bill & Debbie!


December 2018

Just Perfect!

Our first BoondockersWelcome host location was just perfect! Easy access from the highway, a beautiful country location, and a big-rig friendly host. The Hosts have a peaceful farm with large trees dripping with Spanish Moss and Egrets hunting in the pond for breakfast.

It was raining pretty steadily when we arrived and all through the night, so we (reluctantly) had to run the generator rather than open up the windows.

Thank you so much for sharing your farm with us.

Gerard & Mari (& Sampson too!)


October 2018

Beautiful setting

I was injured prior to our stay so we had a hurried stay and not much visiting. Would live to visit again as it is such a serene setting.


October 2018

Wonderful 1st Boondock Experience

The hosts were amazing, it’s a beautiful farm and we set up camp right next to the pond in their large acreage. We have two young boys ages three and seven, we had fun exploring the woods and guessing about the ages of some old farming equipment that we found during our exploration. The public library is only seven minutes away, and we ate dinner at the great outdoors restaurant in High springs, very nearby as well. There’s a community playground about five minutes away, this is a great location. The hosts were phenomenal, the weather beautiful, great location. Sadly we could only stay one night. We will surely be back. Thank you so much. ❤️


July 2018

Great Hosts

Emerald Oaks Farm is a nice open, tree lined property with cordial hosts. They made our stay overnight quite pleasant.
The canopy lined, hard packed road to the property is another nice touch.
Thanks for the stay.


May 2018

Beautiful property in central Florida

Beautiful prt. This was our first boondockers welcome stay. Hosts we're very responsive. Location was a perfect stopover off of 75. Don't let the dirt road scare you. We arrived in rain and the road is well packed and maintained. Easy to park our 45 foot toyhauler pulled by Ford 350 dually.


April 2018

Awesome location hosted by an awesome couple.

This was a great quiet location, making it much different than the tight parking lot camp sites.
Nice flat open area with deep well water and a dump station took care of what we needed since we have solar panels. The hosts are friendly and we would sure come back if they would have us.


March 2018

Quilty Squares

We enjoyed our stay a second time. The pups were also so happy to return, you would have thought they owned the place. Our hosts were welcoming and so gracious to open their property to us again. Thank you!


March 2018

Super nice people with absolutely lovely farm!

We were only able to stay one night but hope to return at some point in the future. Wonderful place!


March 2018

Lovely place, friendly hosts.

Beautiful rustic location, quiet and peaceful. Met the hosts briefly as they were heading out to a square dance. Very nice spots for boon docking, regret I'm only staying one night as I pass through.


March 2018


A lovely couple and place. Thank you for the special quilt tour.


March 2018

Peaceful Setting

We want to thank Bill & Deb for allowing us the chance to stay at the farm. It is a very special place. We had the chance to enjoy the most beautiful sunset in a very peaceful setting. The approach to the farm was a short country road with old oaks and lots of hanging moss. The farm it self allowed for plenty of room to make turn arounds and leave our toad attached. We would most definitely give their home a five star rating and recommend anyone looking for a safe haven for the night or nights to give them a shout. We will be back if our travels bring us this way again.

Farm and Springs

Emerald Oaks Farm Hosts were very welcoming and helpful while our small family enjoyed the local area. our kids loved learning about solar and sustainable practices to run a farm house. We greatly appreciated the easy access, convenient amenities, and traditional culture. We hope to visit again!
35 ft Fifth Wheel

Such a tranquil location and nice, thoughtful people.

This is a very peaceful spot, so quiet and pretty. Exceptional hosts! They asked us to their square dance club. We were exhausted and passed on the invitation but we slept the whole night through and it was heaven. Thanks so much.


March 2018

Lovely Peaceful Spot

We had a fabulous stay at BarnQuiltFarm, our host was just great and invited us Square Dancing which we enjoyed along with another lovely boon docking couple from Nova Scotia, at the evening we where lucky to meet an accommodating friendly community. The site was large and we could pick where we wanted to park up. Great roads for running on too, quiet and hard packed sand.

Beautiful property

Host met us at the gate, with a warm smile and a greeted our dog Sage with affection. He pointed out a few spots for us to set up to take advantage of our solar system. We were invited, along with another boondocking family staying here to attend his local Square Dance Club and had a blast. Unfortunately we were not able to meet Bill's wife, as she was away during our visit. Perhaps next time we travel through this area we will have the pleasure. Easy spot to access with our 32 foot Southwind and tow vehicle. Nice to have water and dump station those are always a bonus. Thank you again Bill. Maybe we can one day host you in Nova Scotia.


February 2018

Gracious and Friendly Folks!

The hosts @ Emerald Oaks are down to earth friendly and their little patch of country is a relaxing location with easy access. Thank you, Emerald Oaks!


February 2018

A good quiet stay

Enjoyed the country side and property!
Had good conversation and a bike ride with the host Debbie. Loved being in the countryside. The frogs by the pond were not bothersome to me, I'm a big nature fan, so... :)
Thanks very much for hosting me!

February 2018

Great relaxing spot!

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. We were greeted warmly at the gate and shown numerous locations we could choose to park. There was ample space to walk and exercise and let our puppy explore. We will definitely be back. Thank you both!


February 2018

A Peaceful Stopover

Our hosts welcomed us at the gate to their property even though it was after dark, and gave us several options for parking our rig. It's unfortunate that we only stayed one night, because they were so friendly, the area is quiet and pretty, with plenty of space for our kids to run and play.


January 2018

Heaven by the pond!

BarnQuiltFarm was an amazing host! Making sure everything was good during our stay and told us of area sites to see while we were there as well. It is a dirt road, but very manageable and well worth the trip. He let us park where we needed to maximize our solar intake. They were wonderful with our kids and our dogs. It's a very peaceful property and we enjoyed listening to the frogs at night. A great host for sure! We can't wait to visit again!

Tom and Joyce

January 2018

A wonderful spot

We just arrived and we love already and plan to return some day. We can only spend one night but it is wonderful. The bullfrogs can be a tad noisy :). Loved it. Even got to visit with another boondocker family staying here at the same time. Thanks for opening your farmstead for others to enjoy. Tom and Joyce.


January 2018

Great place!

Such a welcoming place. A huge field to choose from. Friendly hosts, we almost went square dancing! Thank you so much for your hospitality.


January 2018

Excellent hosts!!

This was our first time with Boondockers welcome and we were BarnQuitFarms's first guest! We were greeted by the owner who showed us around the property, and recommended different spots to park. He was very nice and made us feel very welcomed. We were able to see horses and cows just walking down the street, which the kids loved. His wife was just a peach with the kids. This is place is very relaxing and will definitely be coming back! Im glad our first experience was with this lovely couple and am very grateful for their hospitality.
