WE have stayed at BarryD's location several times. It is always a pleasure to talk with the host. The location is easy to get to, sites are level and our dogs love the free range. This is our "go to" location when passing through the area.
We came in just about dusk and Barry helped us back in to place. He also helped me troubleshoot a water pump problem.
He has a delightful setup and a big "Boondockers Welcome" sign by his mailbox, making the place very easy to find.
He is a gentleman and a perfect host.
I wish more folks would follow his example - it would be a better world.
Thanks, Barry, for a lovely stay!
Barryd's property and friendly personality was greatly appreciated. Arriving about 4:30 on 28 May 2019, he quickly introduced himself along with his wife and his sweet dog . After helping to get our RV situated on a perfect level and shaded site he answered all my questions and volunteered to give us a tour of his beautiful Class A coach. Our conversations soon found we have some similar life experiences and it was a joy to share them in our conversations. The hookup to his electricity was highly welcomed as A/C was certainly needed in the near 100 degree heat. Barry's location was well marked and easy to find and convenient to I-75 and Lake City, FL. We'll definitely look forward a return visit in our future travels.
Thanks Barry for a quiet and peaceful night. We appreciate your hospitality. Thanks for fixing our generator in 30 seconds or less. We shall return. A great site and easy to get to from I10. Easy to move around, spacious sites.
We had a very comfortable stay. Thank you Barry for your generous hospitality! We will hope to stay here again when passing through.
We were soooo very welcomed at our 1st ever stay over with Boondockerswelcome and we couldn’t have been more pleased. With the ample parking, close hookups and fast dependable wifi. Gorgeous mature trees with hanging moss and a sweet friendly dog too! Barryd was so generous of his time and knowledge. Put this one on your map for sure!!!!
This was our second stay with Barry! We enjoyed talking with both him and his wife, sharing our travel stories, and he helped us With some good advice on a plumbing issue! Thanks again! Excellent hosts!!
Barry and Milly made me feel so welcome and what a lovely area of Florida incredible big oak trees in a beautiful spot. Had a couple great conversations and some very good sound advice. Thank you so much Barry.
A very good guy, that Barry :)
Our stay was cut short by motor home repairs but it’s a peaceful spot owned by a really nice guy. Look forward to next time!
Barry has gone out of his way to make boondockers welcome and well outfitted with electricity and water while visiting. I am only sorry that his rig will not fit in our driveway so we could return the favor. He is a sweet gentleman and he and his wife and blind dog Rusty made us very welcome.
Excellent quiet secluded spot with 50 amp and water hook up. Barry is a very gracious host and took the time to share with us his RV experiences. Would highly recommend this location, and will definitely be back next time we are in the area! Thank you for hosting!
What a lovely visit we had at Barry's!. So much more pleasant than a Wal-Mart. The view was lovely, it was quiet, we enjoyed a visit over beer... And Barry provided electricity... Couldn't have been a better evening. Thank you, Barry!
We stopped by for one night. Barry was incredibly kinda and welcoming. We hope to stay again, but for longer next time! We would enjoy talking to Barry again!
This was my first Boondockers Welcome stay and it was great. Barry couldn’t have been more hospitable. I arrived at 9:30pm and he greeted me and provided a quiet spot with electric and water for the night. Easy in and out, very close to the Interstate, and very nice couple. I will stay again. Hope all BW locations are as nice. Thanks, Barry and Millie.
This is our third time staying at barryd's. The site is level and shaded. It is also a good place for our dogs to run. The location is also close to town and several places to eat. Barryd is a great host!
We enjoyed our stay. It was a great first boondockers welcome experience.
We really enjoyed our stay with Barry.
The birds singing in the morning and evening were a joy to hear also.
Very quiet place to stay.
This was our second visit and is a great location. The site is level and shaded. There are several great state parks a short drive away as well as a quaint downtown and the Town of Live Oak. Barryd is always a great host.
Very helpful as we stayed there. Excellent hookups available. Peaceful place and beautiful.
Barry was extremely welcoming and so very helpful. His wife was very sweet. They had me over for pizza and I enjoyed the time I was able to spend with them. I would definitely return if I am in the area again.
Perfect accommodation for a one nite stay. Barry was extremely helpful & knowledgeable. Location is easy to get to & area is quiet & beautiful.
We enjoyed our short visit at Barry’s Compound. Setting is beautiful & convenient. Barry shared valuable travel info which we truly appreciate! Thank you!
We had an excellent stay. Very quiet, very pretty. Plenty of room to park and relax. We will definitely consider staying here again as we pass in and out of Florida.
A very warm welcome from our host! We enjoyed our night here and were surprised and overjoyed to find out there were electrical and water hookups!
This turned out to be a hidden treasure for us. Barry is very accommadating. We enjoyed our conversions with him very much, he is an interesting person. The quaint little town was fun to explore. We found a beautiful cypress swamp and a twelve ft. Yucca about to bloom. We hope to return again.
In addition to meeting 3 great BdW members, preparing dinner for our host & hostess and 2 other guests, having several stimulating conversations over coffee or wine, I enjoyed a (good old) boy's night out while Phyllis visited with Millie.
A great stay with friendly hosts.
Always great to see Barry and get a great night sleep in his quite location.
Barry & Millie are very gracious hosts & go out of their to make your stay comfortable.
Also, I found their location to be very convenient.
We are very thankful for Barry for letting us stay here. Extremely friendly and welcoming. Shared an excellent meal with them along with another guest on our second night. Hope to be able stop by again.
This is the place of good energy and we mean GOOD GOOD energy! Because Barry loves people and you just enjoy the stay! What a person! Would definitely come back again! Highly recommended!
Barry kindly allowed us to stay when he was not on-site. We had great communication beforehand and the spot was flat, quiet, shady, hook ups available and 20 mins to nearby Lake City. Only down side is that we didn’t get to meet the man himself! Would recommend.
I stayed at Barry & Millies beautiful location for 2 days prior to the nearby RVillage 2.0 Rally at the end of March '19. Barry & Millie are a very nice couple & they go far beyond what is expected to be great Hosts. Chuck, NYTEX.
Thank you Barry & Millie!
Great place for our overnight needs! Sorry to be leaving Florida but the time has come to head back home. Barry is a gracious host. Hope we get to come back again....
Barry loves people & RVers. He will make your visit easy & will do what he can to make you comfortable. He has been RVng many years, has lots of stories to share. He has room for more than one rig, so you may meet other RVers also. Lots of great state parks in the area for recreation including Suwannee River SP & Stephen Foster SP. Plus, the Spirits of Suwannee Music Park with many music events throughout the year.
Come say hello to Barry soon.
I could not have ask for better! Barry and his lovely wife Millie are super host. I needed a place to hang until RVillage rally started, just 30 minutes away, and Barry made sure I had everything I needed. I really enjoyed talking with him and sharing stories. I hope to be back one day, and look forward to a chuckle from one of Barry’s joking remarks.
Barry was the perfect host. We spent several hours talking with Barry in his lovely motorcoach....it was our very first boondocker experience....and it was so nice thanks to Barry. Sorry we did not get the chance to meet his wife....but we will return. God bless you Barry.
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!
Barry and Millie are great hosts. SHared lots of stories, great conversations and had a great meal with them. Very friendly, felt like long lost friends. Did not want to leave, Location is close to alot of State parks with great kayaking and hiking. ALso only 10 miles to lake city for all your needs. Property is beautiful with lots of space. Thank you for yur hospitality and sharing your beautiful property with us. Until we meet again. Your friends Virginia and Bob
Great host. Had some great conversations with host and had a great level space with electric and water. Thank you for the great hospitality! Would definitely stay again if we pass thru thus area.
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
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!
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
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
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!
Very nice people very welcoming we only stay one night. But had no problems. Very nice couple.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It was great to meet and talk with Barry. I could only stay for the night but really enjoyed the chat and the location.
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.
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.
Thanks for working with us. We had a great time would stop back any time were in the area. (Nice folks)
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.
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!
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.
Welcomed immediately. Great communication. Felt comfortable quickly. Coming back in a week. Highly recommend
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!
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.
Wonderful hosts, quiet location near 75 and 10. We wish we could have stayed longer, but the road beckons! We would definitely stay again!
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!
Stayed here twice and can say again that these folks are great hosts!
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!
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
Host was very nice and accommodating. Beautiful property. Was gracious enough to give us electricity and water! Really enjoyed our stay!
What a gracious host! Barry is a super nice guy. Quiet and spacious. Great experience! Will stay again when in the area.
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.
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.
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!
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! :)
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,
Thanks for hosting us! Great location with easy access. Big rig friendly. We will be back!
We enjoyed our time at this spot and the time spent talking with the host.
We plan to return when back in the area.
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!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Barry's Compound. Super friendly, gorgeous property and a nice quiet spot to park. The 50 amp service was very appreciated. Thank you Barry for allowing us to stay, hope we will see you again in the future.
Kind host made us and our kids feel very welcome and a safe spot to stay for the night! We would stay again for sure.
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.
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
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!
Barry is an incredibly friendly, accommodating host! Very knowledgeable about RVing and helpful sites and apps. Beautiful property and made us feel right at home! A+++++
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 place was a wonderful stopover after 2 long driving days. Barry is interesting to talk with and would recommend his compound parking to all.
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!
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!
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!
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.
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
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.
Barry’s compound is lovely quiet spot with an equally kind host. Thank you so much for having us!
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!
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
