We are away from any city on 10 acres; this is in a neighborhood on a dead end road. Only about 2 acres are cleared, the rest is wooded and you are welcome to investigate. Our driveway is gravel with the rig parking areas dirt/sandy/weeds, but plenty of shade. We are on a well for water that has been tested. We have water & electric 30/50 available. Since we are out in the country, we have the usual "critters" and insects found in Upper East Texas. We have a small fence kennel for large dogs if you want them fenced. Gas/diesel station is 1/4 mile away and able to handle large rigs.
We are off the beaten path for tourist attractions but if you are looking for some quiet or a restful time, we can offer you a spot.
We happily offer 30 amp & 50 amp and well water. Generators, slide outs, outside cooking and smoking are all fine. We do ask that you dispose of smoking butts in the trash and clean up after you dog. Children and pets should be under voice control or leashed. Both are allowed to free range with the understanding that we have all the critters (insects, birds, reptiles and animals that living in wooded areas would present. Our place is not outside lighted and we ask that you turn off any outside lights on your RV when not in use. Both phone and WiFi service works well here so you should have no problems with any provider you use.
We understand circumstances change so arrival and departure dates are negotiable. We do ask that you give us a guesstimate of your arrival and departure times.
We are retired and sleep in til 7:00 a.m.; please don't knock on the door before then unless you want to see undressed old people. :-)
Roads to property are paved and mostly smooth. Property is gravel/sugar sand and dirt
Anywhere near rig
The more notice we have, the better chance the area will be freshly mowed in summer. If you get the answer machine when you call, please leave a message WITH your phone number as this is a land line.
Closest cities are Longview and Tyler Texas about a 45 minutes drive. Smaller towns are within 20 minutes. Gas is available within 1/4 miles and station can hand large rigs.
The Rushwoods are absolutely wonder hosts with an amazing location to share. We were greeted with open arms and given a host of options for where we wanted to park and which amenities we needed. After sharing a few RV stories and each other's rigs we were given the freedom to explore their 15 acres of East Texas heaven. Each day here we were greeted with a smile and warm friendly conversation before we were off on our family outings. We HIGHLY recommend anyone coming through this area to stop in for a few days.
Very relaxing stay for 2 nights. We kept to ourselves most of the time but hosts were very nice and helpful upon arrival. They met us when we got there and helped us get parked. We were low on propane and when their scheduled propane delivery showed up they asked if they would fill ours too-which they did. We very much appreciated that! Beautiful location. Lots of big trees. We were able to hook up to 50 amp and water. Thanks for having us!
Very accommodating couple. They were more than generous. They let us hook up for free. Both are ex military and so are we, as to say we got along great. We filled up our water as well. They have the most peaceful backyard really away from any city. Highly recommend.
We were welcomed by the owner and she helped us find the best spot for our rig. We had a nice friendly chat. Our stay was so enjoyable that we extended it by one more day. We hope to be back one day.
We had such a nice time visiting Rushwoods! The hosts were warm and just fun to be around. We met an awesome couple who was also staying and had great conversations with both them and the hosts. The hosts were unbelievably hospitable and we will absolutely stay here again.
Welcoming and kind, helped up to get settled in right away. We enjoyed our conversations and days here. This is a place we would like to come again.
Our host were so kind and generous. Well we didn’t stay long because we were headed to the beach it sure was nice while we were there. We may have to stay there on the way back from the beach!
We are so thankful we got to stay there. It was relaxing quiet and the couple were relaxing to be around. It made us smile.
Great hosts! They did everything to make us feel at home. They are fun to talk to and very helpful. We had a lovely spot to park under beautiful trees. They recommended good places to eat and things to do. We enjoyed the nearby Tiger Sanctuary and walks on their quiet, country road.
Were very welcoming and friendly. Helped us to get situated and then spent a nice time talking and going for a walk. They were great with our son!!! Thank you for your hospitality. We will definitely be back when in the area.
I arrived here at Rushwoods in rainy weather hoping to move east on morning of 28th.
The hosts here have been very kind and have even allowed me to stay on an extra day due to heavy rain. So nice to just stay put and read.
I want to thank my hosts from the bottom of my heart for their kindness and conversations.....
Very happy with my first ever Boondockers Welcome experience!
Gracious hosts took great care of u, even gave us newbies lots of great tips. Quiet location, lots of room for our doggo to roam (he LOVED it!). A perfect stay for us to start our maiden voyage. Rushwoods will be on our list for repeat stays.
Great stay with Rushwoods! Good folks. They met me, offered me much needed electric hookup to help me beat this Texas heat! Thanks so much! Great conversation, too, while safely keeping our distance!
Rushwoods was beautiful, peaceful and the hosts were very welcoming and helpful, very nice folks. We would definitely stop back by if we end up that way again. The spot was nice and level and easy access to the spot and when we pulled away the next morning.
Host were really friendly, helped guide our rig to a great spot and helped connect out utilities. 30 amp and pull through always help. If timing works out, we'll try to stay there again.
Our overnight at Rushwoods falls into our description of "Road Magic”. After a long day of driving, our hosts greeted us with open arms, great stories, electricity/water, and an invitation to return. We highly recommend including Rushwoods in your travel plans.
Wonderful overnight stay with at Rush Woods They were very amenable to my late afternoon arrival. Ken quickly got me situated with a fill of my freshwater tank and a hook-up to 30 amp electricity. Great hosts. Would definitely recommend this site.
First, I would like to apologise for the delayed review. We had family stuff going on and hadn't been online.
Second, we would like to express our gratitude for being an amazing BW host. We also enjoyed exploring the area. Thank you for everything!
Easy to get to, very accommodating hosts. They made us feel very comfortable and welcomed us into their home. Stay here if you can!
What more to say.... Just a wonderful couple of new friends. Made us feel safe and at home. We will forget our time with them and hope to keep in touch. My wife and are were and still are deeply touched by their hospitality. Just fantastic people.
