The site is a level private paved parking lot for my former business in a rural residential area surrounded by open fields. With plenty of room for your fur babies (please pick up after them). There is minimal traffic and will be quiet during the evening. New for the fall of 2020 we have added a wood burning fire pit! You can bring your own wood or we can supply some for a few dollars. Just let me know ahead of time if you can.

Please DO NOT take RTT. 116 from Roanoke. This road is very crooked and not RV friendly. Contact me if you'd like easier directions from Roanoke. Also, you should be able to easily pull into our driveway and turn around on my pavement. No need to back in from the road!

Very quiet and private. Close to White Mountain Lake. Host Eddie is friendly and helpful. He had to change his personal plans for our visit but managed to accommodate us anyway. Recommend his property highly.

Absolutely beautiful, peaceful country location. Smlobx and his wife are great hosts. They were not at home but still allowed us to boondock on their properly. Their communication was excellent. Thank you both for a great stay.

Peace and quiet and deer!

We had a wonderful night's stay here, despite the downpour. We chilled out watching the deer at the edge of the property for a solid hour. Very close to Booker T. Washington NM. Thanks for sharing your site with us!

Definitely Works!

We stayed at Lost Mountain Retreat for one night in our 35’ 5th wheel. It was a great midway stop between 2 long travel days. The host was very responsive to our communications and was there to greet us despite travel delays that kept pushing back our arrival time. The location is quiet, easy to get to and close to shopping, as well as the Booker T Washington National Park. There’s a wide parking area to easily make a UTurn then back down into the area near the fire pit. If you’re looking to use the electrical hookup just be aware it is a GFCI outlet which may not play nice with any internal EMS you have installed for your electrical unless you are able to bypass it. We’d definitely stay at Lost Mountain again.

Great location and great host

We were welcomed by our host who made sure all our needs were met and made to feel welcome on his property. He helped us park and get set up. Wonderful kind gentleman who opened up his property to us. I would not hesitate to stay there again. Thanks for our first boondocking experience being a positive one!

Happy camper

Great place to stay on my way back home. Beautiful rolling hill farm country. Host was a great and helped make my arrival smooth and easy. Thanks again!


April 2021

Awesome doesn't do this place justice.

As usual, this was another great stay at Lost Mountain Retreat. This was our first Boondockers Welcome experience, three years ago, and we have continued to visit here about five times now.This place is so quiet at night, and you can look over into the neighbors field and see some deer roaming around. The host met us and welcomed us in. He was again as usual, smiling and very friendly. We look forward to stopping again in the fall.

Nice private relaxing area. My German Shepard was able to safely run free playing with his ball. Watched deer last evening in the fields. Owner arrived to help us set up electricity. Super friendly and helpful. Thank you again.


November 2020

Beautiful and convenient

This was a great location for us to explore Roanoke for a day. The parking spot was nice and quiet, very level and easy to get in and out of. We enjoyed a couple of beautiful sunsets over the surrounding fields. We would definitely say here again. Thank you!!


November 2020

Very Quiet and Relaxing

Once again Lost Mountain was very quiet and relaxing after a day of driving in the rain. The Host met us as we arrived and we chatted a bit. Always friendly and pleasant. He has built a fire pit but the weather wasn’t going to allow us to use it. Maybe next time. We will look forward to staying here again in the future.

Private place

Great place close to Blue Ridge. Smlobx met us and helped to get us set up. Answered questions about the area and took the time to show our son around. Didn’t really see much of him but while we were exploring the Blue Ridge they did leave me a birthday card (so sweet).


October 2020


This property is so conveniently located close to stores & restaurants as well as Roanoke, Smith Mountain Lake and other areas. Plus your host is amazing! You will thoroughly enjoy the blessings of this location as well as the hospitality of the host, Eddie!


October 2020

Extremely Helpful

We ran into some situations which Eddie was able to assist us with. We are extremely thankful for his kindness!


October 2020


This location is spacious and quiet although it's near a road. Eddie not only provides electricity, but also a protective cover for the extension cord to your vehicle so that vehicles can drive over the cord without causing damage.


October 2020


Eddie and his wife were VERY helpful in providing much better directions to their location than GPS! They saved us from driving & pulling a 32' travel trailer over a mountain in heavy fog and pouring rain at night!


October 2020

Perfect spot off the BRP

This was a perfect spot outside Roanoke to camp well touring Blue Ridge Parkway. The driveway was perfectly level, or host was helpful and interesting and we very much enjoyed our stay. Would recommend if you’re in the area


April 2020

Again, a great stay

We had another great night at Smlobx. Great host. We’ll be back.


March 2020

Lost Mountain is great

The Host at Lost Mountain is great. We have stayed there a couple of times and it was always Quiet and peaceful. Plan to stop by again as we head north.


March 2020

Friendly Hosts

Our hosts were very friendly. He met us at the site and guided us in. Easy parking and quiet overnight. We chatted quite awhile about different places they had been to. If you are in the area we recommend staying here.

Perfect overnight spot

After a long day of traveling this was just what we needed. Quiet with a big area for the dogs to run and stretch their legs. Our host met us at the site to make sure we didn't need anything. Very helpful and friendly. Will definitely stay there again if we are ever in the area


December 2019

Very pleased again with our stay

This was out 2nd time here. The quietest place around. Very accommodating host and easy to work with. We came back from dinner and our headlights shown out into the fields and about 7-8 deer were feeding there. It proved to us that it was a quiet place.
Hope to be able to stay again in the future.


November 2019

Very happy with our stay

Smlobx met us upon arrival and we knew right away that we had made the right choice of where to stay for the night. He was very friendly and welcoming and even provided us a recommendation for dinner. We took him up on his recommendation and were very pleased that we did! Our stay was quiet and relaxing. There was plenty of space to maneuver our 37’ Class A and set the stage for a great view of the sunrise the following morning. Happy to stay again and we think anyone else would be, too.


November 2019

Wide open space in beautiful country

This is the easiest access space you could hope for. Former construction business now just housing an RV or two. Large paved area, 110 electric, quiet and a welcoming host. I was met by my host who made sure that I had everything I needed. Highly recommend.


October 2019


Great place, super couple, wish we could have stayed longer! Highly recommend.


October 2019

Great Stop

This host provided a great overnight stop. It was easy to get set up on the large asphalt pad. The site is open to a public road but traffic was not noticeable. Highly recommend!


October 2019

Perfect Stay

Could not ask for a better place to stay! We got a flat on our way so arrived a bit later than anticipated but the host was easy to communicate with and was there to meet us when we arrive to help us get set up! The spot is a huge area and very easy to navigate and level. Close to town, beautiful fall trees to look at, would highly recommend staying if you are able to! Thank you for a great stay!


April 2019

We found the mountain retreat

On our return trip from Tennessee we stayed for a second time. Again our host was waiting to greet us with a friendly hand shake, plus welcoming us to stay again if we are in the area. This time we were able to see some deer on the other side of the field. Plenty room for my Silverado short bed, pulling a 29.5 TT to turn around without any effort. Very quiet and we felt safe on during our stay.


April 2019

Great place to stay

Great spot to boondock. Our host met us to get us situated on our site and electric connected. Our host was very pleasant to talk with and offered his help if we needed anything that evening. Paved, pretty level, no blocking was needed. Provided nice quiet lot with a good breeze.


December 2018


Eddi was a fantastic host. This was our first BoondockersWelcome experience.
As we arrived a couple days after Va received about 12-14 inches of snow, he spent part of his day plowing snow so we could park. To me this was above and beyond what I expected.
Great guy, we will return again someday when it’s a little warmer.


November 2018

Great view!

We were pleased with the beautiful view at this quiet location. We were welcomed warmly. We appreciate the call to warn us about a low tire on our Jeep. If we ever pass that way again we will be sure to request another stay.


November 2018

Birthday Night over!

It was quiet and a great place to celebrate my birthday with my husband. View of mountains was what I loved. No deer unfortunately. Maybe next time. Host was right on with all he said.


November 2018

Great spot and fabulous host.

Great spot for any type of RV since you can drive in and turn around with lots of room. I was driving a pickup and
pulling a 36 foot TT and had no issue.
The road to the spot can be a bit intimidating with the twist and turns but at a moderate speed it's OK.


October 2018

Warm welcome

Eddie & Terri met us and showed us the layout and gave us several ideas on what to visit while we are in the are.

Level black top by the garage with electric, large lot for Stella to run in and an abundance of deer. What's not to like?


June 2018

Thanks for the great spot!

We really appreciated the space. We had a nice visit with the host when we arrived and he allowed us to unhitch so we could go spend the day out without pulling the RV. We spent the day at the Booker T. Washington Memorial, which is just a couple minutes from there, hiking and visiting with friends that lived nearby. A great boondocking experience for us.
