1 acre well maintained in a suburban setting across the street from the bayou.
Quiet, pleasant restful.

Very restful there is a small cemetery adjacent. So the neighbors won’t be loud.

The bayou is across the street and everyone in the neighborhood is great.

Perfect, restful spot

Tom met us at the spot to assist with parking, it was a perfect spot for us, quiet, & restful. Tom was gracious, kind , and very helpful! Thank you so much for the stay and we will definitely stop by again if we pass this way again!

Peaceful overnight stay, good communications !

TomandCindy texted us with a restaurant recommendation for lunch on our way heading west. He came by shortly after we pulled in to make sure we were on the reinforced parking pad and we chatted briefly. This is dry camping in a lot next to a cemetery - very quiet. The address on the telephone pole is visible only after you pass the driveway so be sure to pull into the first driveway on the left after the cemetery. We missed it and had to circle round the block which was no problem because it’s a quiet area, no traffic. Thanks, TomandCindy for a restful stay.

Super nice folks

These hosts are as good as it gets. Was provided with help backing in my rig, and good conversation. The location is great for stays in the greater eastern Houston area. It is a little bit of open country in a urban residential area. Great for those not needing services or generator use.

very welcoming

I spent one night, on my way to Louisiana. Very welcoming couple. Highly recommended.

Going beyond.

TomandCindy responded to my late request and made us welcome, as if we were old friends. A lovely street to spend the night —
Great hosts.

Above and beyond!

Tom and Cindy are wonderful hosts! I loved our conversations. Very spacious and quiet, however the firmer grass "pad" for parking is quite limited. I was probably pushing the limit with my 35' motorhome. The issue is soft ground, not muddy or spongy, but a heavy RV could make a serious indent on the grass. I parked my Jeep between the motorhome and quiet residential street. "Above and beyond" is because they came to my rescue on Saturday night after my car was towed to a Jeep dealer and an Uber back to the motorhome was questionable. Instead of accepting money, they hope I'll pay it forward in the future like they just did.... (of course!).

Wonderful Quiet Stay!

The hosts have a wonderful spot. It is easy to find and not hard to get into. I spoke with Tom for a bit and what a nice gentleman he is. I hope someday I can return the Boondockers favor. Thanks again, Bryan

Quite parking spot in a nice residential neighborhood

Tom came on his scooter to welcome us and we had a great time chatting with him and he was very helpful and shared his travel experience and also gave us some good points to visit.

This was our first time connecting with BW. We wanted to try it out locally before a long road trip in May. We're from Houston and had never explored the Baytown area. Loved the parks and the birding is phenomenal. Thanks to TomandCindy for their kindness.

A nice quiet night in the road

I never got to meet the hosts but they made it a super simple process to find their property and get set up. And it was a much appreciated quiet night which is a true rarity so close to a major city.

Beautiful area

Nice peaceful spot close to Houston.

TomandCindy have such a peaceful spot with lots to do in close proximity. We went to several nice parks to hike and canoed on one of the nearby lakes. Just a walk around the neighborhood was a pleasure. The “neighbors” mentioned in their profile were well behaved and quiet...haha. Thanks so much for the nice spot and we’ll keep you in mind next time through the area.

Nice location and friendly Hosts

I requested to stay a couple of days before my trip there, with uncertainty of when I would arrive, but they were very easy and accommodating. I got a good nights rest in a nice neighborhood. Very friendly hosts who helped me back into the spot when I arrived just after dark. They even loaned me a adapter when I couldn’t find mine! And recommended a couple of good restaurants. (I made sure to maintain social distance and wore my mask as I always do when arriving to any new property.) I appreciated the extra southern hospitality! :)

Quiet place to stop and wind down

Unfortunately it rained the entire time we were there so all we did was cook in and watch tv. But We only stopped for the night so out was no big deal. For what we needed, we couldn’t have asked for a better location. Level spot. Nice area and great reception for streaming movies. Thanks for allowing us to stay!

Just an Overnight

We had a late night and TomandCindy came out to meet us and made sure we found the right spot in the dark we were gone early and had no issues. Thank you.

We were thankful for a nice place to park and enjoyed our stay.

Good night and very quiet. Good big parking on the lawn. Thank you


November 2019


Thank you, Tom, for the easy guidance onto your lovely property!
It's convenient, well kept, with plenty of privacy.
Exactly what a weary traveler needed for the night!!

On the Bayou!

Being so close to a bayou is really cool for us Californians! Great weather (cool) and such a peaceful and dark sly location. We'd suggest having four wheel drive truck because the lawn that you park on is deep and lush. Also, i'd call when you are there so you know which drive to pull into - TomandCindy were very friendly and helpful in directing us where to park. Thanks!
