Beautiful park like area

This was my first Boondockers Welcome stop and it was a beautiful overnighter! Once I turned into the drive, drove past the old truck (which is very cool) and the building on the right the whole area opened up into a beautiful green tree covered park like area. I could pick any area I wanted so opted for a shady spot and settled in. My dog was able to wander while we hiked on the property. I heard an owl in the evening and saw a deer in the early morning. This was a GREAT place to unwind after a long day driving. Thank you for sharing your place with me!

Leaving with a full cup ❤️

We left Idle Wild this morning with a full cup and a heart full of gratitude! We were wondering if the property could be any more beautiful and we were proven wrong as soon as we met our hosts. They were friendly, hospitable, and easy to talk to! They were so accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. We are so humbled by their good hearts. The area we parked in was gorgeous and full of lush greenery and plenty of space to run and play for our dogs. We were given permission to walk around the property and take in the beautiful scenery. We were so pleasantly surprised by this magical place after driving through Carthage! Who would have thought that such a gem would be testing just inside the city limits. Worth stopping by for sure!

Thank you for being such kind and generous hosts! We hope to meet more people like you and stay in similar beautiful places! ❤️
