Description

If you want hook ups or are in a large and/or heavy rig please reserve my other location/site "1- Lexington Hideaway". This site (2) will be on my lawn or in one of the dirt spots I have. They may be soft and unsuitable for larger heavier rigs if it rains. Please fully read the "Access Road Conditions" section. Parking will be based on softness/muddiness, your rig and where you want to park. These sites can be in the shade all day. We may be able to park you close enough to get water using a very long hose, but probably not power.

We live on ~2.25 quiet and relatively private acres with a small creek along one side on a dead end street. We see deer most days, see and/or hear Red Shouldered Hawks and Barred owls regularly.

Pets - Cats that stay inside are ok. For dogs we don't want to take any chances with your dog/s and we will do a controlled meet and greet with our dogs. We have 2 dogs. Our 1st is ~14 year old rescue and likes to mother hen other dogs at first. She relaxes after a little bit of monitoring as long as energy levels are kept low and there is no food involved. Our 2nd dog is a Border Collie, please DO NOT throw whatever he brings you. This helps keep energy levels low for our 1st dog. He'll chase it all day and doesn't know when to stop. He becomes a nuisance by putting it in the way and/or being under foot.

There are a half dozen places to dump tanks near by. The 2 that I've been to but never dumped at are Love's truck stop 11 miles away at 340 Longs Pond Rd, Lexington, SC 29073. 2nd is Barnyard campground ~5 miles away at 201 Oak Dr., Lexington, SC 29073. I think they're both $10. I stayed at Barnyard for three weeks in March 2020 The spot I was in was big and could easily have fit to campers in it. I have room in my trash can for a couple kitchen sized trash bags if you need. Also have a large recycling can available for you to use, what can go in it is listed on the lid.

Would love help and/or suggestions on how to make this listing better.

Access Road Conditions

Paved 2 lane road narrows to a gravel road, driveway entrance is narrow and may be difficult to exit with a large 5th wheel or RV while towing. The largest trailer I've gotten in and out of my driveway was my 35' bumper pull Toy Hauler (pictured) and it was tight. As for 5ers I've had a 30' make it, I'm not sure a 35' would make the tight 90 degree turn out onto the street. I've had a 40' Class A make it while towing a Chevy spark on a tow dolly. Class A & C if you're pulling a tow dolly or other trailer I can use my truck (with 2", 2 5/16" tow balls) or tractor with 2" tow ball to move it without the vehicle on it, so it doesn't have to moved by hand. Also have room to park additional vehicles if needed.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Near your rig, also have room to park additional vehicles if needed.

Suggested Local Attractions

I've added a BoonDockers information box (mailbox) that has local flyers, brochures, local things to do magazines, state maps and such for you to look through. If you go somewhere please grab a flyer for the next guest and leave it in the mail box. I also have a composition book for guests to sign and/or give local reviews/recommendations of local places you've been. Within a few miles there is Walmart, Target, World Market, Starbucks, 4 grocery stores, restaurants, Fast food, Lowe's, Home depot, TSC, Hobby Lobby and tons of other places to go shopping. Multiple gas stations with diesel. I'm a bit new to the area so I'm not really that up to speed yet on what is around. Lake Murray is 3.5 miles away, public boat launch ~6 miles away. Riverbanks Botanical Garden, Riverbanks Zoo & Garden, Columbia Canal and Riverfront Park, South Carolina State Museum, The Congaree National Park Harry Hampton Visitor Center.

Great place and host!

Very friendly host and nice site.
Host greeted us and we had great conversation. Property is beautiful.

Great location for the town of Cadillac, low noise, and as advertised, a great place to stock up. We enjoyed the convenience of Walmart, Aldi, Starbucks, and Dollar Tree, all walking distance. There is more as well.
