We live just outside the City Limits on 4 acres of land open grassy land with nice old trees. From late spring to early fall you can enjoy the fresh scent of Honeysuckle in the breeze. At night you can see so many stars on a nice clear, dark night. You might be lucky enough to see the 8-10 deer that roam through our property in the late evening.
If you need top pick up some little things, we are located just 2 miles from the Dollar General on Hwy 60 and a half mile from a small local friendly gas station / convenience store to fuel up.
You will find we are well located:
20 mls west off Hwy 67 on Hwy 60 West
20 mls east of the town Van Buran and all the rafting/canoeing/tubing on Current River.
25 miles from Poplar Bluff and all the shopping there,
3 hrs from Springfield/Branson Missouri,
1.5 hours west of I-55 on Hwy 60 West.
30 minutes from Clearwater Lake or Lake Wappapello State Park
We have water you have access to, but to hookup to it it will take a few hoses.
Basic check in time would be great anytime after 3pm but no later than 8pm if at all possible, just so you can see where you are parking.
Dogs are Welcome. Please keep them on a leash... there is an area where you can just let them run. We have 3 friendly fur babies as well.
Driveway off the main road is steep, LOW RIDING RIGS/COACHES MAY DRAG COMING DOWN OR GOING UP IT TO LEAVE The roadway is gravel and curves slightly to the right as you go another 100 feet to our acreage (you will pass a home on your left and right as you first turn onto our roadway.)
Tow vehicle either can park on drive by the rig.
Visit Big Springs in Van Buren.
You can float down Current River.
Clearwater Lake is great for boating
Wappapello Lake is great for fishing.
Doug and Cindy were getting their Class C ready to head North while we were there. They greeted us warmly and came out help us get our 35-ft fiver parked under some trees to give it some shade. When a couple of limbs hung too low, they were perfectly happy to let us trim them back. Speaking of 35-ft fiver, that, with a long bed truck are certainly at the very top length limit – not due to parking space, they have plenty of space, but due to getting the trailer turned off a narrow road and down a pretty steep embankment from the road to where the drive levels out. We actually missed the turn on the first pass and had to drive about five miles down the road to find a place to turn around, but that turned out to be a blessing of sorts – it was easier to turn left into their drive than to make the right turn the directions suggested. Would we stay there again? Meeting Doug and Cindy and the location, absolutely yes, and we had a great time – but with a 35-foot trailer, we would have to think about it.
We had a great stay our host was wonderful and they went out of their way to be sociable. If there was a rating system we would give them a five Star. If we are in the area again we will ask if we can stay again.
We really enjoyed our stayover. We were warmly greeted when we arrived and shown where to park. We enjoyed visiting with our hosts and had a quiet and peaceful nights sleep. We would love to stay there again whenever we're in the area.
The hosts were so welcoming they made me feel right at home. I can tell they have tons of knowledge to share. It is great that their property is so near the highway. I look forward to stopping there again in my travels.
Living Life Randomly Acres was the most helpful host we have stayed with so far. We are newbies and they are experienced RV’ers who asked us what challenges we had been presented with thus far. Everything that we mentioned, they had a solution that we found extraordinarily helpful. We hope to find such a wealth of knowledge among fellow RV’ers as we progress in this lifestyle. They shared so much good information that we’re sure much of it will be forgotten, but hopefully recallable as situations call for it. They had a motor home in process of being redone, and a bus that has been featured in Bus Conversions Magazine that they renovated. We were very impressed! Beautiful property and so much neat stuff on it. We definitely hope to stay again if we ever find ourselves in this area!
You couldn't find nicer more accommodating hosts! It seemed like I was really on vacation--waited on me. We even had social distancing wine!! My dogs crazy loved it. When you visit remember to look at their Airbnb bus! They re built it themselves and it is adorable! Hope to make it back on another trip!
Puppy and I enjoyed a fun stop with interesting folks who are indeed Living Life Randomly, The coronavirus warnings meant our conversations took place at at least a six-foot distance, and Jack (puppy) loved exploring the environs and running in the yard. Nice people, great hosts.
Again the most nicest people you will ever meet. From accepting our last minute request and allowing us to stay an extra night because of weather to providing us a safe place during 2 tornado warnings they went above and beyond what was necessary. Great conversations with likewise people. We highly recommend and hope our paths cross once again.
PS. Be sure to check out their bus(campers)
Had a really nice night at Doug and cindy’s.
Very quiet location. Surrounded by national Forrest.
We shared a bowl of chili, a bottle of wine and a lot of fun conversation about shared interests and living in Wisconsin.
You must ask them to share their story of Coco the dog.
I have been invited back and will take them up on their generous hospitality
Although we were there first boon dockers guests, you would not have guessed it. They made us feel right at home and we have made two really good friends. Only meant to stay one night, but wanted to spend more time with them - this is what Boon dockers Welcome is all about, sharing our experiences and dreams over a glass of wine.
