We are located north of DeLand and just south of DeLeon Springs in the bird sanctuary called “Glenwood”. We are on a gated road just east of Grand Ave. it’s a quiet, safe, and tranquil neighborhood that is convenient to many of the area’s gems. We can provide softened well water to refill your tank, 30 amp power (bring an extension cord), and WiFi. The local KOA is 15 minutes away and has a dump station ($15). The site has early morning and late afternoon shade. We will provide a special gate code as necessary. No loud motorcycles or loud cars permitted; violates our deed restrictions.
Enjoy your stay!

When walking your pet, it must stay on leash (if trained & in the yard, it can be off)
Social drinking only - No drunks ;-)
No fireworks or discharging of firearms
No loud music/TV, no loud people, no loud vehicles, and no loud motorcycles (detecting a theme here? <smile>)
Relax, be safe, and have fun!
We have a lane that goes around the edge of the property. Because of a light pole’s location, RVs have to go to the end of the street, drive around the cul-de-sac, and then drive back to gain access to the lane. It is partially grass then crushed concrete. Hanging tree limbs aren’t currently an issue. I trim them back as necessary.
Tow vehicles can be parked in front or rear of RV.

Friendly and generous hosts.
We enjoyed our time at this quiet site.
We recommend them.
We enjoyed our visit. Great host! Great location, easy to get to lots of places. Will be looking forward to next trip to area. Great first boondocking experience. Thanks so much to our hosts!
We wanted a close to home getaway. Silver Eagle's home is very close to good areas for kayaking and bicycling. We met B, who was a very friendly accommodating host. He provided clear instructions, he gave a things to do around here sheet to us. 30 amp service, with water available. Far enough from his house to give us both privacy. Easy access to his guest spot. We were very happy with everything. They understand the need for social distancing. Thanks B and M. Remember my offer.
Great stay in beautiful DeLand! Bob and Mary have a great piece of property, and we were tucked away in a private little nook behind their outbuilding. Heard owls at dusk and dawn, and got some great pictures of a pleated woodpecker on a tree right out our window. Nice, quiet street to walk the dog. Also, if you have a dog, don’t miss the Barkley Square Dog Park right in town ... acres of running room, a pond for swimming and a $10 self-dog-wash station which you’ll need after the pups roll in the dirt! LOL. Enjoyed fun conversation with Bob and Mary and highly recommend them as Boondocker hosts. Take care!
The host is in a gated neighborhood of beautiful properties with lovely yards and political flags. The location is perfect for people want to tourist the local natural areas, as noted in the site description. The host greeted me at the street and showed me the parking options. It’s a pull through loop for those uncomfortable backing up. The host was friendly and we had some nice chats about RVing. I used the parking spot that is fairly private and wooded, a bit like boondocking, except 30 amp!
Bob was standing out in the rain to great us when we arrived. Very nice set up with level area next to his new RV storage building. He offered his 30 amp service and would not take a donation from us also offered water to refill our tank. It was a pleasure meeting Bob and he was very accommodating and offered a great summary sheet of local shopping, dining, etc. Weather was stormy so we stayed in for the night but woke to a sunny day to depart. Certainly hope to connect again with Bob and offered to reciprocate a stay in NC.
Very friendly host, in a beautiful setting. His written info sheet was helpful and a pleasant surprise. Thanks
Thank you for having us and making feel at home! Great level spot in rear of 2 acre property...quiet, safe and comfortable.
What a great place to stay. The property is very nice. Our host met us at the street to guide us to our boondocking location where we would have access to electric. It was peaceful and relaxing. The best part was our conversations. We have the same number of children, both worked in IT, etc. the list goes on. We talked about places we have been, told a few stories, he shared information with us concerning the city and state park where we are going next. It was a great time, it felt like we had known each other for years rather than just meeting. We would very much like to visit Nestled in Glenwood Oaks again.
