It's not glamerous or anything, It's just a good place to boondock for a night. At first glance it looks like simple grass yard.....but actually it was a limestone parking lot which has grown over, so it's a very hard base. I've had concrete truck pull onto this with no problem. The grass area is approx. 50' x 65' which and is accesible by pull-thru from either side. If it is raining and you do not feel comfortable pulling onto the grass, I have a concrete pad that is approx. 15' x 40' but is not pull-thru. There are no low hanging trees.

Even though I have my site listed as no electrical, I do have 30 amp electrical service.
If you ever heard the old saying...."all it takes is for one person to screw it up for everybody"?
I had to remove the electrical and water options for the site. The last person that stayed here asked if they could hook up to my water and electrical. They were here 2 days and on the 3rd morning they were gone like a fart in the wind. No goodbye, no thank you for the hospitality and electricity, no offer to contribute a little for the utilities they used.....NOTHING....just gone!
thats just not cool at all.....

If you request to use my electrical or water, a reasonable contribution would be helpful to cover my costs. I have wifi that I can share for your use. UPDATE: B.W. sent out an email on this exact thing!

Also I plan to tap into my sewer line and have a dump station available hopefully soon.

As I'm now getting into a better position to be out boondocking myself. I may not be home on the dates you request. Don't let that sway your decision. The spot is open always and my observe-everything neighbor is 89 years old and he knows that i have ppl here when i'm gone. he passes 5-8 times a day so he's like built in
The one thing I learned from BLMs is that they have an information sheet showing local attractions, great resturants, and nearby walmarts, so I decided to make one for my place as well. It is a sheet that i printed up and available in a box mounted onside of the shed next to the site.

Access Road Conditions

gravel road on one side and concrete parking lot access on the other side

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

can pull through from either side, so tow vehicle would not need to be disconnected.

Suggested Local Attractions

Within vicinity of quite a few Antebellum plantation homes on the Mississippi river. I have a sheet made up that has map and area attractions if so needed. I'm approx. an hour drive from New Orleans. I'm a reviewer for so I can answer any questions on free boondocking sites in the area.
If you've seen my youtube videos you know that I can cook cajun food.....or if you want some Crawfish "mudbugs", I know quite a few fishers that I can get live crawfish from at good prices. I have all of the necessary equipment to boil em up for ya. And not just limited to crawfish.....catfish, alligator, turtle, frog, shrimp, crabs. There are plenty of cajun delicacies to cook and enjoy.

WONDERFUL hospitality!

After I arrived, I took Rick’s wise advice and drove my rig directly onto a grassy area on his property which is supported by a thick layer of stones so, despite the tremendous downpour, my rig was on solid ground. I was so happy that I didn’t have to back up my rig--always an unpleasant chore for me.
Rick was an excellent host from whom I learned a great deal about RVing, especially boondocking tips, of which he is quite knowledgeable. I also enjoyed seeing his homemade RV trailer which he built. Before I left, he cooked up some wonderful jambalaya, and kindly gave me a heaping bowl of it.
Rick, thanks so much for your generous hospitality!

Great stay!

Rick was very welcoming and even loaned me a few tools I didn't have on hand when I had a minor mechanical issue. He was happy to receive a reasonable contribution toward electricity but left the amount to us to decide. Would highly recommend staying here.

Very Accomdating

We arrived during a rain shower. Rick and I had a nice chat about SEC football and other topics. He had a map of the area wit attractions and recommended eating establishments. We tried one, Big Daddy's. The food was great, and reasonably priced.

There was a minor issue with power.
Rick went above and beyond to resolve it and be sure we had comfortable stay.

Ok for one night.

We stayed at Rick's place for two nights. Rick is a nice host. The location is between Lafayette and New Orlean, 25 miles south of Bâton Rouge. It is ok to stop there for one night on your way to New Orleans. Little bummer is the neighbor working on his mecanic shovel for 10 minutes at 6:30 am. We worked up and left...

Super nice guy

Nice flat spot for our 31 ft rv. Rick was very nice and even let us charge our computers on an extension cord. He is building a cool rig. Hope you get out there soon Rick!

Big Ezy In & Out

Rick's place was a breeze to access. He made sure that if I needed anything he could hook me up. Quiet at night but right off the main road. Very easy to find and felt safe and secure the night. If I come back again I would like to stay for a bit longer to see the area. Thank you.
