Description

We are on a rural property with neighbors 100' from your site. Your position will be either tucked into the trees with privacy and a view into the woods (with access to 50amp). We have a second location (without electric access) more in the open. You will be in front of our house, but 100' from it. It is quiet, with beautiful night skies.

Be prepared to use blocking of 4-6". $10 is requested only if using the 50amp service and/or water. Electric may require an extension beyond the standard 25' cord (maybe 40' total).

Well trained pets will enjoy a space to roam around on or off leash. There is a fence along one side of the property helping to keep pets nearby. Please clean up.

Our neighbor has a dog that comes to the fence to bark. It lasts for a few minutes and then he goes away. There are other farm animals around: pigs, chickens, turkeys, horses. The turkey are known to come by and visit guests.

The town of Travelers Rest has undergone a beautiful restoration. It has many eating opportunities and access to the Swamp Rabbit Trail (biking and walking) which goes all the way to downtown Greenville. There are also grocery opportunities and a Walmart about 10 minutes from home.

House Rules

We would prefer no smoking unless in your rig.
We enjoy children!
No generators between 7pm and 9am.
We would prefer to be home when you arrive and depart. Can text to coordinate.

We do have neighbors close enough to be disturbed. However, quietly sitting in lawn chairs is no problem.

Access Road Conditions

Our drive is almost 1000' of gravel road that goes over a hill. You can not see the home from the street. I navigate the drive with our 35' Class A motorhome. It can be a little bumpy, but no issue. It will likely require a 3 or 4 point turn once on the property to face back out to the street. Again, easily doable. I do it every time we use our rig.

If you have a low clearance issue, you might drag at the street. We never have, even with bike racks extending out. In addition, we have a concrete culvert at the street that you will have to cross. For that reason, weight limit is 28k pounds.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

You will be able to stay hooked up or detach. If you detach, you can park in several locations on the property close to your RV.

I put "Any size" for the RV. Anything over 35' will require some careful driving.

Very relaxing spot in the rolling hills

The host was very accommodating. Offered a lot of advice based on their years of experience traveling and living in an RV.
They live right next to a farm with horses and pigs.
We’ll be staying again on our way home

Host was friendly and great hospitality

We arrived just in front of a severe storm which the host was able to offer some very useful information to keep us and our RV safe! Excellent host! Would enjoy returning!

Amazing time!

We spent one night with this wonderful family and it was a great time with fun conversations! We had farm animals out the window and a quiet/peaceful rest. We parked alongside the fence and had 20amp electricity. It was easier to back our rig down the driveway so we just took our time and it was so worth it! We would stay at this location again.

Wonderful evening!

Travelers Rest was a perfect, quiet spot to spend the night and the hosts couldn't have been friendlier! We sat around their fire pit and shared great stories. It was uncanny how similar we were! You won't be disappointed with this great spot!

Great short visit

We enjoyed our short visit with RollingRagu. We arrived late in the evening and they were very gracious meeting us at the site. We didn't have a chance to converse very much but will definitely be back in the area. Would certainly recommend this location. Thanks again.

What a Treat!

RollingRagu are a sweet sweet family with huge hearts and a beautiful property that they are more than willing to share. We requested a stay the day before, they responded quickly, invited us over, gave us choice of where to park (we chose the top of the driveway with great views), and we all chatted together until well past sundown. My only wish is that we had more time together. I cannot say enough about what a wonderful and kind family they are. Hope to cross paths with them again! <3 Thank you RollingRagu

Great local information and wonderful host family!

My stay with RollingRagu confirmed that people are good and have a great heart. This family provided us with a safe place to park for a few nights. as we made our way back to our home base in NC. Social distancing prevented the type of interaction this family typically has with their guests. However, we made the most of it and they provided us with a wealth of information about the local area. We are hoping to return in the future to take advantage of the natural beauty of this area and the charming town or Traveler's Rest. A name well suited for this great Boondocking location. Thanks again and safe travels!

A good night in the rain

Even though it rained heavily during the night we stayed, our host did not hesitate to come out so that we could plug our rig. The house and the neighborhood are wonderful, with mountains, horses and no noise at night.

Close to the mountains

Great location close to the mountains. Host and family were very kind and I enjoyed talking with them about their RV'ing adventures.

Wonderful hosts

Rolling Ragu went over and above to make sure that all our needs were met and beyond. Had a great time visiting and definitely feel like we made new friends on this visit and swapping stories was amazing. Their passion for RVing is contagious!!
We will DEFINITELY return, most likely in October for another visit.

Stay at RollingRagu

We had a very pleasant stay with our new hosts. We are their first boondockers and of course their first positive review! They made us feel very welcome and we had a evening with the whole family around the table that was heart warming. There site for us to park was beautiful with a wonderful view and a beautiful morning sunrise. Boondocker do have to make a three point turn at the top of the drive which we were able to make with our two wheel drive truck and 30’ trailer but it is tight so I would advise larger rigs or those with limited experience check with the host first.
