We are on a rural property with neighbors 100' from your site. Your position will be at the top of a small hill. It allows for a peek through the trees at the mountains in one direction about 20 acres of horse pasture in another and a distant horizon view out front. You will be in front of our house, but 100' from it. It is quiet, with beautiful night skies.
It is fairly level, but may require blocking of 4-6". 15 amp electric may be available under circumstances. We have water, but you can not stay connected. The fire ring is behind our house and a bit from your RV, but you are welcome to it.
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.
One con I can think of is that our neighbor has a dog that comes to the fence to bark. I believe he would do it for some time but would stop and is kept in the home at night. Probably a non-issue if you are just visiting to sleep.
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.
No generators between 9pm and 8am.
We want to be home when you arrive and depart.
You can enjoy quietly sitting outside, but we do have neighbors close enough to be disturbed. A couple sitting in lawn chairs having a drink is no problem.
Our drive is almost 1000' of gravel road that goes over a hill. You can not see the home from the street. I have maneuvered the driveway with our F150 and 25' travel trailer as well as with our current 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.
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.
We travel often during June and July, but feel free to give us a shout and see if we can accommodate you.

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