Jvickrey is awesome. Even when they aren’t there, they allow you to stay. That’s showing faith in humankind. He even checked to see if our trip was going ok as we were traveling. He gave us great directions to his place and let us know that there were other Boondockers there as well. I hope people help make his travels as enjoyable as he makes others!

Wonderful Stay

We spent 2 nights at Hill Haven and had a wonderful time. Our hosts were super gracious and full of information about the area and we were even more surprised that we had both lived in the same area years ago. It was like meeting long lost friends while on the road. We definitely will come back again if in the area. And we look forward to seeing each other down the road.

Relaxed stay

We stayed here for a night while traveling through the area. Host was away, but thanks to his great communication we had no problem finding the spot. Great to have water and power, too. Thanks so much!

Quiet and Peaceful

We had a very easy, quiet and peaceful night. It was only an overnight stay but would have no problem going back and staying longer. They were so wonderful to allow us to stay even though they were out of town.

Thanks for making our trip south safer and.easier.

Welcome committee

We were welcomed by a pretty gray kitty as we drove in. We didn't get to spend a lot of time at the location since we were in the area for a death in our family. We really appreciated being able to stay even though our host was away. I don't know many people that do that.

Evening chat

Jvickrey, perfect directions averting a train crossing. Delicious well water and a warm fall chat on the front porch. A perfect ending to a Georgia autumn day. Make this a scheduled stop.

What great host!

What great host these people are! We’ve stayed at a lot of Boondocker host over the last 3 years and jvickrey ranks right up there as one of our most pleasant stays. They welcomed us as we drove in, gave us a great location to setup our home, included us in great conversation, and helped us get our filthy awning cleaner than is has been since it was brand new. We’d only scheduled 2 days but left with an open invitation to stop back whenever. They truly live up to the Boondocker vision and we’re glad to have had the pleasure to get to know them if only for a short time. Thank you jvickrey.

Little Piece of Haven

‘Jvickrey’ are wonderful hosts. We got such a warm greeting upon our arrival. We enjoyed great conversation on their outdoor porch. The neighborhood is nature full. We were surrounded by trees and tweeting birds. It was a quick overnight stay for us but it couldn’t have been more pleasant. Thanks J & L ;-)

A wonderful stop

Jvickrey hosted us last night even though they were out of town. How awesome is that?! What a sweet little spot we had, including water and electric. Woodsy and charming, even though we just crashed, we enjoyed the trees and the little welcome sign. I'm sorry we didn't get to meet, but hopefully we will pass that way again. They made us feel very welcome and comfortable. We would highly recommend a visit to Hill Haven!

Nicest couple in the world

Nicest couple in the world they invited me to great conversation on the porch at nights, aired up the tires on my RV, invited me to do my laundry in their home. Very peaceful atmosphere. Cat lover like me. I would recommend a stay there to everyone. Makes you feel very welcome. I am so grateful for their hospitality.

Awesome

jvickrey's place is just awesome, no other way to put it. large drive which was easy to enter, 30 amp and water, shade, beautiful surroundings.....just great! Room to walk the dog enough to tire her out and me and lovely area. the host is exceptionally kind and friendly and we have enjoyed talking about everything. We are here in late July and it is Georgia so it is hot! but we're from south alabama so not any different just be ready. So grateful for such a nice spot to spend the night while on our way north, thanks.

Ultra friendly fellow boondockers---

We completely enjoyed our time here. The conversation referred to as "social porch time" was an ultimate do not miss every evening event. They are a good source of information for those traveling in a bus. We came away from their place with many good points to apply toward our RV life. Wanted to give them a hug as we left but that stinkin covid19 kept us at arms length.

Very welcoming host. Invited to visit on their front porch we really enjoyed our conversation about our travels. This was our first Boondockers stay, we really enjoyed it and look forward to many more. Great experience.

Nice quiet place

We stayed for three days off to the side on the drive facing a wooded area. It was easy to get there and within about five miles to stores and.restauramts. We appreciate the hospitality, especially during this time of campground closings.

Generous host

Our host was unable to be home due to an unavoidable issue, but allowed us to stay anyway. Directions were spot on and the hookups were easy to find. Because of their generosity we were able to enjoy a couple of nearby sites we were looking forward to visiting.

Peacefull site

We stay for just one night. The hosts were absents but we met them in our last trip. Perfect place to enjoy the nature.

Thank you for your hospitality.

Hope they'll be home in a next trip to have the chance to discuss with them.

Kindest Hosts

I actually came a day late because of a family emergency. That was no problem at all. They said just come.

They are the sweetest, kindest couple. Was told to make myself at home. Enjoy their wonderful well water and electric.

Had a very quiet, peaceful night.

We discussed all things Florida and I learned so much from their many years of experience.

Cool hill stop

Hosts where very fun to hang out with on their porch. If you are lucky you will get a bus tour like I did. They even made me a breakfast sandwich and hashbrowns and I joined them for breakfast on their porch! Fun to hear their stories, and they were most helpful giving me info of cool places to boondock in Florida.

Easy access, level spots, Electric available.
I had 2 bars of Verizon LTE.
Oh, and I filled 4 gallon jugs with their good tasting well water before I left.

I would definitely stay here again if I have the opportunity.

Great First Boondockers Welcome Experience

We had a very peaceful overnight stay in a beautiful rural setting. Our hosts were very welcoming and we especially enjoyed the friendly conversation. We recommend this location to anyone lucky enough to stay there.

Sorry we missed you!

Our hosts went from Georgia to Florida, we went from Florida to Georgia. Thank you for opening your home even though you were traveling. Your grandson Chandler was a great host. Your site was excellent. You have obviously invested some time and money to make you guests welcome and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting your other guests from New Zealand. This was our first night camping in 13 years and as a Boondockers Welcome guest. We could not have been more fortunate than to have chosen you. Thanks again.

Wonderful stay in Georgia.

This was our first Boondockers Welcome stay, and it was great! Our host gave detailed directions that were spot on and avoided potential issues with other routes. We arrived later than expected, but that was not a problem. We had no trouble getting our 36' class a & toad parked and hooked up to power/water.
We spent much of the following morning chatting, swapping stories & letting kids play. Our stay was enjoyable & we'd highly recommend Hill Haven.

Going Home

Staying with these two is like staying with old friends that you just met. This is our second BW experience and both have been excellent A high standard for future BW stops. We expect John and Lois to stay with us when they visit PA in their Roadtrek this fall. Our ATT hotspot worked fine at this location. Easy access to parking location..

Wonderful Boondocker Hosts

John and Lois were wonderful hosts, making us feel really at home. We had a great "International night" with a family from Luxembourg. Sharing stories about the love of travel with wonderful hosts is what Boon docking is all about. Hopefully our paths will cross on your journey later this year.

Limitless hospitality!

I think our fondest boondocking memory might be staying with these hosts!
We were welcomed here together with other travelers and enjoyed a lovely evening together on arrival.
Our toddler was so excited about all the toys in the yard and our baby got to play with a walker!
The next morning we were welcomed on the porch again for a yummy breakfast and received great tips about the area to spend our day.
When we came back they had set up their own bus for us as a storm was on its way! Luckily the rain only arrived the next day after breakfast (we were spoiled again) and they let us wait until the storm had past in their house. In the meantime they gave us useful advice and contact for the rest of our trip,
We are so grateful for the warm welcome here, lovely place and kindest hosts. Thank you!

Happy!

We are very happy to meet Lois. She is a very nice woman (reminds me a lot of my grand-mother :) ) Beautiful area, quiet, perfect boondocking place! She even gave us a bag of deluxe snacks before we left, so lovely and kind. Thank you very much again and we would definitely come back there if we have too!

Very beautiful spot

We stayed one night on this beautiful spot. John was not there we spoke with his wife Lois. She is a very friendly lady and offers us water and electricity. The spot is very quiet. If we are in the neighborhood we come again. We recommend this host.

Great stay with John & Lois

We had a great time staying at John & Lois’ driveway. They were lovely people and we even went and got some food together. We had great talks about life and family and they gave us some cookies to take with us which were delicious. Hopefully we get to see them again on the road! Or hopefully they come visit Canada and we can go on some adventures together! Either way we hope you guys keep in touch! Thanks!

A haven for RVs and their owners

Hill Haven is a great spot to park for the night among other RVers. The hosts are welcoming and make you feel very comfortable in setting up and in conversation. A very quiet environment and I would hope that my journeys lead me there again.

Great friendly host and an easy big site to get into with water and electric. This was perfect for me, not really out of my way, and I could not have felt safer.
