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.

Quiet relaxing place to park

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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

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!)

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.

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. ❤️

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.
