Wonderful overnight stay; host was very friendly & accommodating

What a lovely piece of property! My younger dog thoroughly enjoyed exploring the front yard as soon as we arrived. I had no problem getting my rig level when I backed in, and I was delighted to find that Barry had installed power poles for his BW guests. How nice is that?!
Barry is a delightful gentleman who wants his guests to be comfortable, and I certainly was that. Thank you so much, Barry!

Wonderful place and host

Don't miss out on staying here if you find yourself in the area. Barry is a fantastic host and so helpful. The property is easy accessible and the peace and quiet keeps you from ever wanting to leave. I loved it here and you will too. Thank you


March 2019

Awesome Host!

Barry is a great host. He had even moved his coach before we arrived so we could have a space with hookups. It's a really quiet spot to stop, and we enjoyed talking with Barry and his wife and other boondockers this morning before we headed out. Definitly plan to stay longer than 1 night to really get to enjoy the spot and have good company! thanks Barry!


March 2019

Southern hospitality with NY charm at it's finest

Amazing host. Spent his time with everyone making sure they had what they needed and wanted. He shared Wi-Fi service water and electricity from his own home but also has designated 50 amp outlets and water hookups


March 2019

Pleasant Visit

We appreciate the hospitality at Barry's Compound. A gem.


March 2019


im still here. the host graciously allowed me stay the full 5 days. to say this is a great place is an understatement. what wonderful and friendly people. barry should be the poster child for boondockers welcome


March 2019

Absolutely Lovely Couple!

Our stay at Barry's Compound couldn't have been more perfect! It was quiet, and I had wifi access so I could work while Mark had some great visits with our hosts. We extended our stay for a couple of days so I could finish some things, then left feeling like we had made some new friends.

I hope we can stay again!


March 2019

Very nice stay

Very nice people very welcoming we only stay one night. But had no problems. Very nice couple.


March 2019

Fantastic peaceful stay!

For our first time using Boondockers Welcome it was absolutely fantastic. Our host, was very accommodating. The site was very nicely set up for any RV. The Spanish Moss on the huge oak trees in the area was very majestic. The set-up, location and our host made us feel very relaxed. We would definitely recommend this host to anyone needing a place to rest. Many thanks to our host...a very nice person.


March 2019

GREAT hosts!!

This was our first boondocking experience. Berry and his wife were such gracious hosts!! Their compound was really easy to find and the roads were good. The parking area is in front of the house and was easy to back into, we had plenty of room to leave our truck hitched to our 40' fifth wheel. Barry has water and electric which he so kindly offered. We went for an evening walk which was very nice too. Very little (local) traffic on the road. If you are in the area, and they are home, this is a wonderful place to stay -- we will definitely be back.


March 2019

Super nice host!

We had a great stay with our host. He was very welcoming and kind to our kids. He had a nice big property, and we got to meet another boondocking family staying as well. We even had water/electric hookups! He had a great sense of humor and we really enjoyed our conversations.


March 2019

Wet but Welcoming

I can't blame our host for the wet weather, but they helped us out in a pinch. The place was easy to find and access was also easy. We had good conversations and he helped us locate a RV part that we were in search for. The kids were also very welcomed and had plenty of yard to roam around in and play.


March 2019

WONDERFUL hospitality!

After arriving at Barry’s home during a heavy rainstorm, he invited me inside until the rain subsided. Then he guided me into a perfectly level grassy area near the rigs of two families of Boondockers Welcome guests. There I had a restful sleep of ten hours!
Barry is a very kind, thoughtful host whom I highly recommend to other guests. Although my stay was short, I am very thankful to him for providing a quiet, safe place to park my little rig overnight. I definitely hope to return for a longer stay.


February 2019

Great Host! Quiet, peaceful night.

It was great to meet and talk with Barry. I could only stay for the night but really enjoyed the chat and the location.


February 2019

Great intro to boondocking

This was our introduction to boondocking. What a great experience! Barry was so helpful and gave us numerous tips and advice. We so enjoyed his stories and the freedom to move around the property. Will definitely stay here again if we're in the area.


February 2019

Great stopover

We needed a place to stay for a few days between Jacksonville and Tallahassee. Barry’s place was perfect. Google maps got us there just fine, it was easy to pull in and park our large fifth wheel. Barry Is very nice and super interesting.
The town itself is a little remote but LakeCity is only 20 minutes away.
We will return again next year if Barry Will have us.


February 2019

Rusty is a great co host.

Thanks for working with us. We had a great time would stop back any time were in the area. (Nice folks)


February 2019

Super Friendly host and great spot

This is a great quiet place that is easy to get to and a new gas station just a few miles away. We had plenty of space for our rig and for our 3 year old to play. The host was very hospitable. Would definitely stay again when in the area.

Great spot, easy access

We had a quick overnight stay that Barry made very easy and enjoyable. His land is easy to access with a big rig and close to the highway. We enjoyed getting some RVing wisdom from him and our dogs loved meeting his. This spot is a true gem in FL!


February 2019

Fantastic, great host!!

Great hosts, very accommodating. We couldn’t ask for more. He provided water and electric hookup. Excellent place to park our RV. Plenty of shade, quiet area and plenty of room. If you need down time, perfect spot. Enjoyed visiting with him. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay with them again if/when in the area.


February 2019

Enjoyed stay

Great first BW experience

This was our first BW stay and we couldn’t have been more pleased. Barry was a very welcoming host and was so kind to offer electric and water hookups. We stayed two nights. Our dog loved having a large area to run and play. Easy access to the property. Our massive toy hauler fit perfectly. Thanks again!


January 2019

Super nice people and spot

Barry and Milli were so kind and welcoming. We absolutely enjoyed our time there. Loved hearing the story’s. It a bit off the beaten path, but good roads and easy to get too. We hope to return something. Would definitely recommend this BW spot.

Barry & wife are very hospitable.

Barry's a good guy

Great location and hosts

This is a great location. Good access and a great site. The host was awesome and we had great conversations. The area is very quite and well maintained.


December 2018

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.


December 2018

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!


December 2018

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! :)


December 2018

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!


November 2018

Great Spot in North Florida!

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.


November 2018

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. Colleen and Werner


October 2018

Nice place!

Didn’t get to meet the owners. But, they graciously allowed us to stay anyway! We used the available 50amp and water. We enjoyed our stay!

October 2018

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😊


October 2018

Wonderful stop

Barry's place was a wonderful stopover after 2 long driving days. Barry is interesting to talk with and would recommend his compound parking to all.


September 2018

Great host, great location

Great spot!


September 2018

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.


September 2018

Amazing host!!!

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!


August 2018

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!


August 2018

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!


July 2018


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.


July 2018

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!!
Theresa & Laurie


June 2018

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.

Barrys compound

Great stay and great conversation! Easy in and out for any RV


June 2018

Quiet spot

Barry’s compound is lovely quiet spot with an equally kind host. Thank you so much for having us!


June 2018

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!


June 2018


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!


May 2018

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.


May 2018

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.


April 2018

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.


April 2018

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.


April 2018

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!


April 2018

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!


March 2018

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.
