Wonderful hosts, quiet location near 75 and 10. We wish we could have stayed longer, but the road beckons! We would definitely stay again!

Great experience!

Very accommodating! This was our first time using Boondockers Welcome and we were very pleased with the ease of it! Barry was great to work with and the availability of hook ups was incredibly generous of him. Thank you for an awesome first experience!

quiet place in the country- great host

stayed a couple of nights here. Barry is friendly and most helpful. We really appreciated his 50 amp service with the cold nights we had. Hope to see him again!

Barry's a good guy

Nice big space, very quiet. Really enjoyed chatting with Barry- would have liked to talk more but we just stayed a night and both had things going on. We will definitely come back here next time we pass through

Wonderfully kind friendly folks

Millie and Barry are terrific hosts. Barry was really helpful with hooking up my rig and eager to make me feel welcome on their beautiful property. Very aware of my presence while allowing me freedom to play with my photography and painting. I highly recommend them to all boondockers.

Outstanding host

The property is convenient, easily accessible and peaceful. Barry graciously offered power, wi fi and water and helped me into the site even though it was absolutely pouring rain. He could not have been more accommodating. Thanks again Barry!

Wonderful Gem

Barry has the perfect hideaway for hosting. Close to the major highways and close enough to town (Lake City). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - especially the pups! With lots of room to run and play, the dogs were in heaven. We enjoyed the great conversation and wealth of knowledge that Barry had to offer. 5 stars! :)

Great host and space

Barry was great to chat with and share stories. Lots of room to park, and multiple areas on the property had water/electric. We are in a rush to head West for the winter; if we had more time, it would be great to stay and hang out.

Property is about 5 miles off highway 10, easy access in and out of the property. About 1.5 miles down the road is a small fuel station and dollar general. Two bars of signal on both At&t and Verizon unboosted,

Great experience!

Our host was welcoming and helpful, with a great sense of humor! He helped us get settled even though we pulled in later than expected. Both him and his wife were kind and welcoming of our four young children. Looking forward to visiting again!

Best First Stay at Boondockers Welcome

This host is one of the funniest and nicest people we have met on the road. This was our first stay with BW (we are a FTF) and It exceeded our expectations. The host reminded us why we do this, to encounter amazing people like him, his wife, and the other boondockers who stayed on the property. Thanks for your generosity and love.

Peaceful night, lively morning

We were fortunate to stay at Barry’s site for one night and Barry is everything that you read in his reviews and more. He’s very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. He knows a lot about RVing and even recognized our truck camper’s make. It was enjoyable chatting with him and the other boondockers while drinking our morning coffee. It was an uncomplicated stay in a quiet, secure area. Also a nice place to walk in the cool of the morning. Sunset was pretty nice, too. Best wishes, Barry and hope we meet again.

Nice quiet rural setting!

Barry is a friendly and gracious host! Made us feel welcome from the first minute we met. Our dogs had a nice place to run and they loved Barry too🐶. We spent some time at a few springs Peacock springs was our favorite, nice trails to walk dogs. Would recommend Barry's Compoud to anyone in the area. We will definatly stop again! Thank You Barry😊

Barry's brilliant

Barry and his wife are the BW host role models. Starting with the Boondockers Welcome sign at the mailboxes when you approach the driveway and ending with the best BW stay anyone could have.
Barry is a wealth of RV knowledge. The site is level, groomed and plenty of water and power. We were given plenty of time to rest and regroup and plan an alternative destination when the hurricane prevented us from traveling to the Carolinas. Small world Barry and his friends lived in our home area for years, now we are more than neighbors but friends. Thanks for a great stay. See you again soon. Travel safe in your RV.

We are so glad that we had the opportunity to meet Barry and his wife Millie. They are super nice people and great hosts. Barry is very friendly and always helpful. We spent hours talking. Their place is nice and quiet. Honestly we can't wait to meet Barry and Millie in the future again. We really appreciate your generosity. Thank you Barry & Millie!

Great People

Barry was responsive and very helpful and making our reservations with him. Unfortunately due to an unforeseen situation, we had to cancel our arrival just after I had confirmed our ETA. Very understanding, I really hope to host them one day in Clearwater or have the chance to stop back and meet them in person. Thank you for your generosity!

Restful Stay

Our host was in the yard and helped us hook up to his 50 so we could run our AC in the 97 degree temperature. Very friendly host and a quiet site under shade trees made for a wonderful overnight stay. Our first Boondockers Welcome stay was just what we were looking for!

Peaceful

This host was wonderful. From the time we first inquired about staying to when we arrived in the rain, he was thoughtful and communicative. The site was level and easy to maneuver in. This host has been RVing for years and had some really great wisdom to pass down to us youngsters. We greatly appreciate generous hosts like this one and we are so grateful.

Very accommodating and friendly host

Barry went out of his way to get us backed in to our spot and settled in.
We visited in our RV for a couple of hours sharing information and experiences. He offered us a pluthora of knowledge about RVs, which was very helpful on our first night of full timing for TWO years!!!!!
We will definitely make Barry’s place a location to return to!!

Gracious hosts

Barry is so kind and accommodating. The site is easy access and has water and electricity. Rusty, the dog, is a sweetie. Millie, Barry's wife, is cheerful and happy to see visitors. Thank you for opening your home to this weary traveller. Your kindness is much appreciated.

Such a wonderful couple!

We stayed just one night, but wished it was longer because it was such a nice stay! The location is great - very convenient. Upon arrival we were guided in which was very helpful. We spent most of the night visiting with them, sharing stories and laughter. We had such a nice visit that we will definitely return!

PERFECT FOR MY NEEDS!

My first night on the road (in my new rig) was spent at Barry's Compound & I couldn't have chosen a more appropriate spot! It is peaceful, convenient, quiet, level WITH 30 amp service & water!!!

Barry was available & understood I had organizing to do so we had a couple delightful visits during the afternoon even though he is busy caring for his wife who just had major surgery!

On top of all this, Barry & Millie are animal lovers extraordinaire! I had the pleasure of being greeted by their lovely dog who had his eyes removed due to disease. He is well adjusted & extremely friendly.....anyone who has this level of dedication to their 'kids' is A-#1 in my book!

Nice people, peaceful place!

Nice place in the country; a welcoming couple offered a great spot near trees with 30 AMP & water. Chatted about RVing and shared experiences (and NY upbringing.) Recommend for any size as plenty of space. Barry has lots of experience w mechanics & RVs; whealth of information.

Easy to get to and quiet

We were really tired when we got here so didn’t spend a lot of time with host. Barry and his wife had just got home from a cruise and she wasn’t feeling well so we didn’t meet her. The site was nice and our dogs loved the fact that they could roam freely.

Beautiful country setting

Very quiet and peaceful setting out in the country and not far from the highway’s. Enjoyed talking with Barry. Barry was very gracious and even had water and electric for us to hook up to. He had a lovely patio set out in the yard that we were able to have our dinner on and enjoy listening to the whippoorwills. Site was very level and it was first time we didn’t have to use any leveling blocks. Hope to visit another time on our way through the area.

Fun times at Barrys

Spent 2 nights at Barry's. Nice quite spot, stayed dry even though it rained one whole day. Barry is a wealth of information about RVing. Milly (his wife) and Rusty (their dog) were fun to spend time with too. Wooded location down a quiet county paved road . Will back to see Barry next year for sure. Maybe Barry will get up to Ontario to see us too.

Incredible Hosts

Barry and Millie are incredible hosts! They are very responsive and confirmed my request to stay right after I submitted it. They're very kind and welcoming and extremely generous with their RV knowledge. They invited me into their home and shared RV tidbits from their many years of RV experience since the early 80s. Their land is pretty too with trees with hanging Spanish moss!! It's not too far off the beaten path, but it feels like you're in the country. I would consider them professional RVers! They even have the real deal RV hook ups (electric and water) like they have at campgrounds. If you're passing through the area and looking for a place to park your RV, Barry and Millie's property is a perfect spot. Thank you, Barry and Millie, for a wonderful stay!

Very peaceful

Barry was wonderful about my last minute request. I really appreciated that. His compound is a very peaceful place to spend the night (I only needed the one night) and Barry and his wife couldn't be more welcoming. I recommend this host!

Really Quiet at Night!

Barry and his wife were very welcoming. We were stopping over for one night on our way to help family due to a recent death in the family. They were super accommodating and we really appreciated everything that he did to make us feel welcome. Wish we had more time to visit. We would definitely recommend them to anyone passing through the area.
