Need more than 3 nights? Lets discuss.
Property is located near Lake Marion and the northern end of the Santee Dam. Several open acres on the property, some shade trees, a one-acre pond for the view, catch and release. See the House Rules below. Either of two 30 amp with water sites may be available, inquire. A dump station is behind the barn. There is a designated area for gratis boondocker campers under the oaks but, if the ground supports doing so, you can setup anywhere. A fire bowl is available for your use, benches are located about the property.
Must be self contained to boondock (off-grid) gratis here.
First come availability on 30A electric, please inquire, $5 per night.
Camping hammocks using tree straps are OK in the designated area.
Water is available to all should you need to fill your tank entering or leaving.
No running generators after 10PM or before 7AM (quiet hours). They must not disturb others.
There is a barrel for your bagged trash.
Please be sure to clean up after your dog.
Note that Verizon wireless does not work well here. Perhaps that's good if you're looking for solitude.
You'll be parking in an open field or in shade under the trees, we'll scope out a spot on arrival. Maneuvering should not be an issue for the experienced. We have hosted Class A's, C's, B's, 5ers, and trailers. All paved roads in good shape lead up to the property driveway, then gravel and grass.
Hitched to rig, along side rig, all is well.
There are several nearby boat landings, fishing piers and lake water access points. Santee and Poinsett State Parks, Swan Lake in Sumter, are each under an hour away. There are nearby wildlife management areas including Santee National Wildlife Refuge. Google search Lake Marion and Santee Cooper and you'll find there is plenty to explore and do in the area. Two golf courses within 10 minutes, Myrtle Beach and Charleston are just about 90 minutes away if traffic is not too bad. If coming in for one of the local or national fishing tournaments, we'd love to host you. "Boat Church" down the road a bit is available Sunday mornings Memorial Day weekend thru Labor Day weekend.
Host was great full of knowledge. Helped me learn about my camper and work out a few things to do in the future
What an awesome setup, and also a wonderful host. If you are going to the lake or have never seen it this is the place to stay and please bring a dog. We'll be back.
RV and his Human companion are both truly amazing. I'm going to make a trip to the area as soon as possible, for no other reason than to visit with my new friends. Thank you, from my whole heart. You are so very appreciated. :)
When you find a great spot, you go back. Dan & RV are great host. This was our second stop over. So peaceful & relaxing. This was just what we needed after our long trip. When we're back down that way, I'm sure we'll stop again for a night or two. Looking for a peaceful stop over, you need to stop here. You'll love it, guarantee!
We highly recommend this host & his peaceful & beautiful property. This place very much feels like home away from home. As a newbie to rv'ing, I still have a great deal to learn. Each time we're here our host has enlightened or helped me with a different aspect of rv'ing. Thank you DTSSR. We'll see you next year if not sooner.
Our host was fantastic, he came out in the rain to direct us and was very welcoming. We were only able to stay a short time. We are looking forward to returning soon.
Beautiful property. Polite and friendly host. Our chihuahua/terrier made friends with RV (the dog). We look forward to visiting again.
Awesome host and awesome property. He was there to meet us as we pulled in and set us up with everything we needed. Felt super comfortable exploring his property!
This was our second stay with our host & RV. Very congenial host & beautiful grounds. We highly recommend this host.
Our host was wonderful and helpful. We came in during a storm and he told us the safest route in as well as guided us in the rain to the site. He was full of helpful tips and helped a stressful moment (traveling during a nasty storm) to turn into a relaxing, restful evening! Thanks Mr. Spulecki we will see you and RV again!
We've come across alot of gems in our journeys, but this is absolutely #1. 2 days relaxing & fishing. Dan was a great host and RV was so funny trying to get the fish. Will definitely be back.
Came out to greet us and helped us get all set up and showed us the grounds. It was a beautiful property and had a little lake on it. Great host.
Our host couldn’t have been nicer. The grounds were beautiful and quiet. Our site was perfect. Recommend DTSSR to any Boonedocker.
It was a pleasure staying with RV and his owner. We a new borns and for us this was the perfect place to get our feet
wet. We were assisted along our new adventure and learned lots of valuable things. Thank you and we hope to visit again soon. It was relaxing and enjoyable.
Our dog, Molly, enjoyed her stay at our host's beautiful sanctuary in SC. Of course, we agree with Molly! We will be back! Thank you for providing such great hospitality!
RV and DTSSR greeted me with a smile and showed me where to park and set up, but not before my dogs were also shown a warm welcome. What a sensational location, property and amenities, it is picture perfect, beautiful park like grass surrounded by trees and a huge stocked pond. After I got set up and settled in, DTSSR wanted to make sure I had everything I needed and we ended up talking for hours. With a few maintenance items I needed to work on, DTSSR offered to help and showed me many tips and tricks and spent significant time working on one of my projects. It is very rare to find such a generous man and my faith in humanity has been restored. Thank you RV and DTSSR for your hospitality, your generosity and congrats on such a wonderful property. It is an oasis. Our paths will cross again, sooner rather than later, safe travels to you also my friend. Cheers!
We loved every moment of our stay here. This was our first Boondockers stay and this will be hard to beat. The property is absolutely beautiful, the pond was great for fishing (and catching as we caught large mouth bass) and our dog Lee loved swimming in the pond as well. DTSSR is an awesome host who provided great conversation and also assistance and advice regarding our mechanical problems. We stayed two nights and should have planned for three. Doesn't get any better than this. Thank you DTSSR and R.V. We hope to be back soon!
Dan was very kind and accommodating. He has a beautiful property with lots of room. There were actually 2 other RVers there the night we were, and we had more than enough privacy and space. We were able to dump our tanks, refill our water, and go off grid for a night. We enjoyed our conversation with Dan and meeting RV. If we are passing through the area again we’d definitely stay here for a longer visit. Highly recommend!
If you’re ever in the Manning, SC area, this is a fantastic place to stop. We’ve stayed in RV parks that were not this nice. The host and RV, the dog, were wonderful, friendly, and fabulous hosts. There’s electric and water and even a dumping station, if you need it.. The catch and release pond was also fun! Highly recommend stopping here—we will again if we get back to this area.
RV and his loyal employee Dan were very welcoming and gracious hosts. The scenery is wonderful and relaxing. Worth the few minutes from interstate for an enjoyable and safe stay. Do yourself a favor...stay here!
The host and his dog RV are very welcoming! Dan taught me things about rving so I can have a better experience and be safer as well. I’m new to it all so this is invaluable! Truly grateful for the beautiful place to stay and help!
We had a great stay at RV Acres. Our host was very welcoming along with RV. The property was beautiful and very peaceful. Wish we planned for a longer stay!
DTSSR and his dog, RV, provided a great boondocking experience. We were greeted upon arrival and offered several shaded or full sun level spots to set up our trailer on his wonderful multi acre well kept property. Our dog loved roaming around our trailer and by his pond.
Our trailer was looking pretty brown/green from the last couple months of camping under oak pollen laden trees. Our host offered a shaded spot with a hose and I was able to make her look nearly new again! He also gave us tips on securing our vents from mud dobbers and even gave us some anodized mesh for a DIY job.
Great property and wonderful host. Thank you!
RV greeted us and was very welcoming. So was his human...heehee. Relaxing spot and a nice pond to walk around and sit by.
Would stay again should my journey take me this way.
RV’s acres was a great place to stay, easy in and out, plenty of room to move around. The host was so nice and helpful, gps will get you there but can give you better directions to make trip shorter . If you have T mobile you will have a quite time no service there but that was good, we got in some reading time. Hope to be able to go back again sometime. Many thanks to the host👍
Our host was an amazing and was super friendly. Our dog, Dax, loved being able to explore and run around the property. The pond is beautiful and we were able to pull in And out with out any issues. We had great conversations with The host about his camping expeditions and took notes! We would highly recommend stopping any time!
This was Mir and my first experience with Boondockers Welcome. We couldn't believe what we were experiencing. Dan was so accommodating and helpful to us. We were so happy that Dan shared is little peace of paradise with us. (No mistake on spelling.) Such a beautiful, peaceful rest stop for weary travelers. If RV's Acres was the one and only time we took advantage of BW our small member fee was well invested. Thank you Dan for your kind hospitality.
A beautiful, serene setting for an overnight stay. Grateful for a quiet getaway, our dog made a new friend and our host was pleasant and accommodating.. a win win which we recommended for sure!
What a beautiful place and our host was wonderful. We will be back.
A spot off the trail (I95) and peaceful. Host and RV were very polite and respectful. It was an easy in and out. As mentioned in the write-up, cell reception is bleak, but not an issue with us.
I would stay again.
This is our third stay with RV’acres. We can’t say enough good things about this place. We love that we can walk our dog and stretch our legs in this beautiful environment. We also love having a welcoming host and a safe place to stay. See you next time.
What a great stay! If you come and stay here you should stay for three days at least - this host has tons of things for you to see and do in the area. He’s better than a visitor center!
We couldn’t have asked for a more kind and generous host.
We’ll be back!
Host was friendly and accommodating and the site was beautiful. Would stay again when I’m back that way. There are no hook-ups so make sure your devices are charged and water in your fresh tank.
The host was waiting to greet me as I pulled in his driveway. There is a nice pond on the property which the host encourages guests to catch & release. Nice shaded site. This host went out of his way to ensure that my buddy Tucker & I were comfortable. I highly recommend DTSSR for a stay. Mr RV is quite a character and enjoyed Tuckers company. We will be returning.
My stay at RV’s acres was perfect! DTSSR and RV were welcoming and very helpful with getting me situated. The property is beautiful and a great place for relaxing in the shade or by the pond. His knowledge of all things RV related helped to me learn and I appreciated that he took the time to give me his knowledge. My dog liked playing with RV, too. Thank you DTSSR and RV.
We came upon Boondockers Welcome because we didn't always feel safe when traveling and stopping at WalMarts. Plus they can be noisy! This was our first stay using the Boondockers reservation syatem and we were delighted. RV-Acres is beautiful and we had our choice of parking anywhere in a large field. Dan was friendly and helpful. We were so tired and didn't get to do much walking of the beautiful property but hope to stop again and do so. Thanks for a safe, peaceful, quiet place to rest our weary heads!
Wow, Our first Boondockers stay! DTSSR reached out to us to confirm our arrival time. Upon arrival we were greeted with a warm and friendly smile. We had a nice conversation parked our rig and took a very needed walk around his property. Such a lovely place. Later our host checked up on us and said goodnight. I went on to have one of the most restful sleeps I've had in years. Very serene and quiet place to stay!
Thank you DTSSR!
Kevin, Christie and Jax
2nd time staying with dtssr and RV. He and RV met us when we arrived and directed us to our place to park. He has a wonderful property and we walked over near the pond. And like last time it started to rain 🤨. Very nice spot and highly recommend
Very beautiful, peaceful and pleasant stay. Dtssr meet us as we pulled in, helped us get parked in location he desired, wonderful views. Well maintained area, allowed time for setup and then checked on us a little later to see if we needed anything else. Allowed catch and release fishing in his pond if we desired, wonderful places to sit around pond for viewing with firepit. Although our verizon service was weak no fault of dtssr. Wonderful host and place. Absolutely would recommend and would stay again if in area.
Really quiet. Very pretty property. Dan was welcoming and helpful. 10 /10 would stay again
Beautiful spot I wish it stopped raining so we could have sat by the lake and enjoyed the peacefulness. We saw a big blue Herron on the lake. Wonderful host. Highly recommend this spot.
I had a great couple of days at this quiet spot overlooking the pond. Host was most generous and accommodating. I will definitely be back.
Another great stay on our way to Florida. Not too far off the highway and it is nice and quite with room to stretch your legs! Great host!
We stayed one night on our way back home from Florida. We enjoyed a great view and a welcoming host. The view over the pond was beautiful and great to look at while winding down from a long drive. We would definitely stay here again if our travels ever brought us back this back this way!
We had a great stay with host dtssr. An idyllic spot on a small pond. Very quiet. Plenty of space to maneuver and park our Truck Camper. Mostly level and flat. We would have been completely level if we'd moved @ 10 yards farther from the pond. We were traveling northbound on 95 and looking for an overnight spot. Not too far frm the highway interchange and there are plenty of the usual places to eat at the interchange. I suggest getting a little bit closer to dtssr's location and enjoy one of the local spots in Manning. 5 of 5 stars from us! #njmooseandsquirrel
Easy to find following his directions. Found pretty level spot near beautiful pond. Loved being able to walk the dog after a long drive. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough for our dog and she snuck out and took off for a fun run around the property. Gave us opportunity to watch her run while we were able to enjoy visiting and getting solar advice.
We stopped at RV’s acres for a few night waiting for the rain to stop so we could visit Charleston, though in the middle of nowhere the place was charming and so was the host.
Dtssr greeted us with his dog RV as we arrived, found us a great location and made sure we had everything we needed, even offered amenities we were not expecting.
We enjoyed numerous walks with our dogs around the property and neighborhood.
We visited Santee state park on lake Marion which was absolutely beautiful.
Would definitely come back if we are ever in the area again.
Thank you for your great hospitality!
i arrived a day late due to nasty storms,heavy traffic and construction..then arrived at this oasis,warmly welcomed by my host.....my camper was parked near a pond in a large well kept and mowed field..a beautiful property ...very peaceful....thank you very much ....
Quite a nice spot. Host was wonderful. We came in after dark sadly- but he was right there to help us get situated.
