This was our first experience with BW. And I can’t say enough about BamaMan’s beautiful property! They were kind enough to host us with power & water as well.

Good stay

Nice and friendly host! Large, flat backyard with easy maneuvering. Very close to Montgomery. Mike led us to our spot on a riding mower which helped guide us to the correct spot. Hookups advertised are 50amp, water, WiFi, and sewage dump. We were only made aware of the 50 amp hookup and saw a water hose near the pedestal — we’re unsure if the RV dump and WiFi was available or not. It was the hosts priority to keep his fifth wheel and truck camper plugged in at all times so he could keep their batteries charged. With that being said, he had us unplug his fifth wheel so we could plug into the 50amp pedestal but then had us plug his fifth wheel into our AC outlet on our travel trailer so his battery stays plugged in and charges. He had us do this by using several adapters to convert from 50 amp to an AC outlet. Unfortunately, that was too much for our 30amp RV and it kept blowing our GFCI breaker so he found an alternative solution and ran an extension cord to his house (which should be done rather than plugging into other RVs). On our second night, a class C came in and he had them plug their power cord into the AC outlet on his truck camper. As fulltime RVers, the piggy-backing from one RV to another using multiple adapters and extension cords poses a potential risk to your RVs electrical system. It was $5 per night for electric however he prefers everything to be run on propane. Other than a few minor inconveniences, we had a great stay!

A delightful Stay

We enjoyed our stay at BamaMan’s property. The surroundings are quiet and beautiful, and the host was welcoming. We recommend staying there. Access was easy, and we were on our way the next morning.

Short but Sweet

We spent one night at this lovely location. We were able to pull straight in to the driveway from the road. Lots of room in the back yard to get turned around and set up. The yard was almost perfectly level. Easy access to clean 30A service and water. A creek that is part of a canoeing trail runs along the property line. On the opposite bank about a one mile walk away is an artesian well historical landmark right next to an expansive and beautiful community park.

Our hosts were gracious and took great care maintaining social distance. They shared some local shortcuts to get us easily on our way. We didn’t have much of an opportunity to chat, but thoroughly enjoyed what company we did have.

All in all a very pleasant stay.

What a delightful experience!

The hosts were incredibly kind, hospital and so gracious! They brought out some toys for the kiddos and the was unexpected and extremely kind of them to do so. It totally brightened the kiddos day! Being there was so nice, beautiful and very quiet at night! We are so grateful they offered us to come back again. Incredible hosts! Thank you all so much!

BamaMan was our 1st Boondockers Welcome experience!

We did not get to meet BamaMan or his family because they were out of town; yet they allowed us to stay! We came in after dark using our GPS. Of course the GPS doesn't give enough warning, and we couldn't see the numbers on the mailboxes very easily, so we overshot and had to drive down the street to turn around and come back. I got out and walked the driveway before we came in. There's plenty of room to pull through, beware of bushes, etc. Mike's directions were perfect.

We had a nice quiet night using his electricity hook-up, and left $10 in the designated spot.

Thank you BamaMan! Hopefully we will meet someday! :)

Great!

This was our first Boondockers Welcome stay and was overall a positive experience! BamaMan and his wife were very friendly and welcoming hosts. Their backyard is not only spacious but their spot on the river is beautiful. Great location close to Montgomery.

Very nice guy with a great back yard for RVs

Arrived in the evening and BamaMan came out to greet us. He showed us some options for parking in his big back yard and we chatted briefly. We had a nice quiet night and left in the AM. Would definitely recommend.

Southern Hospitality!

We stayed in Prattville with Bamaman while visiting Montgomery AL and were so warmly welcomed by him and his wife who are great travelers and hosts. We were able to visit with them, sharing stories and rv-ing knowledge which is always welcome as we are new to this mode of travel. One of the best things about it is the people we meet. That was the case for us with Bamaman as host!!

Great spot and host

We really enjoyed our overnight stay at BamaMan's location. He has a beautiful piece of land with a creek running through the back which the kids enjoyed looking at. Very nice man that we enjoyed chatting with. Would highly recommend this location to others and hope to visit again!

Wonderful Hosts!

What nice hosts. We arrived shortly after 1 and were welcomed immediately as we drove in the driveway. "Bamaman" gave us several choices as to where to park. The sites were level, quiet and there was 50 amp electric and water available for a nominal charge if you so desired. He also advised us on different areas of the local town to eat and see, but we also enjoyed just sitting on the porch and sharing stories of our travels for a bit before we headed out to explore the town. The town of Prattville was very quaint and we loved the bamboo gardens in the Wilderness Park. We would have stayed longer but we had reservations at a state park in FL. Such great hosts! Truly wonderful hospitality. Thank you so much, we hope to be back someday soon! Blessings to you both.

Super nice people

We got in late in the afternoon, just before dark and Bamaman was watching for us to pull in, showed us where to park and hook up to electric and water. Super nice. We were tired and did not get to talk long but the short talk we had was very interesting. We are going to get back together with them so we can get to know them more and discuss both of our adventures. Great place to stay, quiet and peaceful.

BamaMan Stay

Excellent place to stay. Mike and Patricia are wonderful hosts. It's a little piece of country in the city. Easy access for our 31 foot class C with a tow vehicle. Our dogs loved all the open area to roam. We couldn't have asked for a better place for our first boondockers stay. Thank you Mike and Patricia.

Fantastic stay

Mike and Patricia were consummate hosts for our overnight stay while passing through. Beautiful property with plenty of space to navigate our 37’ MH + toad without unhooking. Power and water was offered for nominal fee which was nice to keep generator use minimal. We enjoyed sharing stories and good conversation on their patio. Mike had setup a new rocking loveseat down by the creek which was nice to hang out and have a drink on in the late evening. We absolutely would stay here again if near Prattville. Thanks again!

Missed appointment but it's only a goodbye.

We missed our appointment with Mike. We had to redo our plans following the meeting with our sailing friends who were waiting for us on the east coast of Florida.
But we will recover this fall, we come back to usa this autumn for 6 months. We will try to see Mike and his wife.

From the photos of their property, the place seemed very beautiful and quiet and we would have loved the place.

Thanks Mike

Very hospitable

I was only there for a quick night but Mike was very helpful with getting me set up. I only met Patricia briefly but she was very welcoming. Their property is beautiful and I’d love to be able to return Monday to spend more than just one quick night. I strongly recommend this host.

Southern hospitality at its finest

The layout of this site is fantastic for anyone with a larger size RV towing a car. The hosts were so welcoming and generous with their time - they even invited me to join them to watch the Alabama football game! I hope to pass through this part of Alabama in the future and have more time to explore the Montgomery area.

Serene, safe and soothing

What a beautiful location to snug into and spend a lovely evening. Access is exactly as host stated, and directions were spot on. Large level landscaped property was big enough for our 40' bus towing to turn completely around without unhooking, ready to head out in the morning. Level, shaded but still had satellite access. Didn't use any of the offered amenities, but the host was kind, friendly and generous. Highly recommend. Stay to the left side of the driveway as you enter to avoid the lovely crepe myrtles!

Bama man....he's the man!

What a beautiful locstion and lovely couple with lots of RV experience. Thanks for sharing RV Parky app. Boondockers is a great "brother and sisterhood" of people. This location is outstanding and appreciate the value of a location that can accommodate longer rigs. Getting in and out was no problem. Thanks for a great stay. Wish we could have had a camera fix solution. Come visit us in Florida.

Great, as always

These two are full of great RV travel stories and are most welcoming. Hopped on their wifi to check on our email and route for the next day. Had a lovely chat in the evening. They let is plug into electricity to keep our refrigerator going and have a great property next to a wonderful, crooked river that out dog loved to check out.

Great first stay using Boondockers one!

Loved our stay with BamaMan and meeting his wife and sister-in-law. Had an engaging chat...shared RV experiences and then spent a restful peaceful evening. Slept like a log. Very quiet and comfortable.
Hooked our campervan to his 15 amp on the side of his fifth wheel. Gave us enough juice for our fans and electrical current to charge our devices and watch TV. Was a very comfortable temperature when the sun went down and we were ready to enter our van.
Idyllic! Thank you BamaMan and wife!

Above and beyond expectations !

We recently had the pleasure of staying with Mike and Patricia for 2 nights. We had only booked for 1 night but had a problem with our hitch when we arrived at their wonderful location in Prattville. (The hitch broke and we couldn't leave)

Mike was nothing but helpful and called a man who came down to look at it, unfortunately it was irreparable.
Being Saturday evening there was not much we could do before Monday, and Mike and Patrica were kind enough to let us stay another night. We got the hitch replaced early on Monday.

The site itself is the beautiful back yard, with a creek at the back and they offered electric also. We had a great conversation with Mike and Patricia about their travels and got lots of tips!

I would highly recommend visiting the charming town of Prattville and visiting with Mike and Patricia who were all over great hosts, we will definitely be back!

Such a wonderful time ...

This was our first stay through Boondockers Welcome, and a little nervous. We felt good about choosing Mike and Patricia based on their referrals but we had no idea just how rewarding our experience would be. Immediately, they made us feel welcomed and we're so accommodating with their site and anything we needed. We hated to leave - we could have talked for days.... such a wonderful couple!

Mike and Patricia are great hosts! We felt very welcome and had a great time drinking wine and sharing travels with them and another boondocking couple. Very nice and large backyard, quiet place, beautiful flowers. Would come back here anytime without hesitation!

Another good stay at Bamaman's

In our travels from PEI, Canada, to Mississippi in January, we always request a stay w/Bamaman, since he has such a nice site and is always so hospitable. The site is flat, and it is quiet, which we like. So glad he belongs to Boondockers Welcome.

Great people in a nice calm location

BamaMan hosted our family in the beginning of December and they were fantastic hosts. Our little girls really took to them and were treated great. The yard is huge, so they had plenty of room to run (and crawl) around. We really liked swapping stories about traveling and our experiences. It was a great location, with plenty of great things to see in the area and the hosts were about as nice as can be. Hope we get to meet up with them again on the road.

Excellent hosts

I had a very pleasant stay with BamaMan! They are the sweetest Alabamans, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with them. Their property is gorgeous, huge and quiet with all the amenities you need.
Montgomery is very close and is a really cool town with interesting history.
They are gracious hosts and even helped me fix a small issue with my RV, thought he'll claim he's not mechanical ;)
I am thankful for a great and relaxing experience!

Great hosts and generous folks

We had an idyllic stay at BamaMan's place last night. We had a shady spot in a wide green lawn near a lovely creek. And a moonlit night added to the magic. Our host and his wife offered us an electrical hookup and even loaned us an adapter so we could take advantage of it. Once settled in, we had a wonderful time sharing RVing stories together for a couple of hours, including our hosts' exciting plans for their coming Alaska trip. Can't recommend them enough!

Great hosts, with a great location.

Had an excellent stay with BamaMan. Very easy parking spot with water, electric and great conversation. We were provided very good recommendations for things to do and see in Montgomery. Old Town Alabama is well worth the visit. The State Capitol and area around it is very impressive.
Wish we could have stayed longer. I hope we meet again down the road.

We stayed with BamaMan for a night enroute to Gulf Shores. They were very prompt replying to our inquiries and most helpful upon arrival. Their home is in a wonderful location and we had a very peaceful night. We had a great time sharing camping experiences in the evening. We'll definitely stop over again if we are passing thru!

HIghly recommended!

We received a warm southern welcome on the beautiful property near Montgomery. Our host also gave us plenty of well received advices and even contacted a mechanic for us regarding an issue he noticed upon our arrival. This resulted in a useful repair the next morning. We highly recommend to pay them a visit when you are in the area or to welcome them at your place as they are a very interesting couple with quite some travel stories - thanks a lot for the stay!

Great and Warm Couple

When I emailed and asked about the possibility of staying here I was told to come ahead but the hosts had already made plans for that weekend and they wouldn't be there however we were welcome to stay. So, we told them that we would if they didn't mind, a couple of days later I get an email asking if it would bother us if they allowed another couple to stay also and we immediately responded that it was ok with us and we were looking forward to it. There was plenty of space for both of us and what a pleasure it was meeting the young couple from Australia. The hosts had to return home because a friend of theirs had unexpectedly passed away so we also got to meet them and the last night all 6 of us hung out on their back porch swapping stories. This is what boondocking is all about and we are proud to be members. Outstanding hosts since we go through this area every couple of years hopefully we can stay here again.

Hospitable hosts!

This lovely couple were so friendly and hospitable it felt like we were with family and had known them for years. They gave us plenty of information about rv-ing and were very helpful. They even took my kids for a spin around the yard on a lawn mower trailer. We had a wonderful stay and only wish we could have stayed longer.

Sweet Home Alabama

This friendly and outgoing couple live up to the title of the song! They made us feel as if we were special relatives and had known us for all of our lives. Related many of their RVing experiences gave us useful tips for future use. They have a great set-up for almost any RV. Only wish we had more time to spend with them. Go out of your way to boondock with this wonderful couple!

Fabulous - wish we could have stayed longer!

We were passing through the Montgomery area and just needed an overnight. Hosts were absolutely wonderful and made sure we wanted for naught. Can't beat that southern hospitality! Easy in and easy out spot with water and electric hookups. We were invited to stay longer, and wish we could have. Great folks, great area. We will definitely be stopping in next time we are through!

Thank you!

Southern hospitality

We would like to offer a big positive recommendation to BamaMan for his generosity with staying at his home boondocking property. We've stayed there several times in our trip from Prince Edward Island Canada to the Gulf Coast in Mississippi. Now that he knows us, he offers his plug-in to us even when he's not there. It's a lovely, quiet place. 3 cheers to BamaMan!

Very welcoming couple in small-town Alabama

We enjoyed our stay here in Prattville, a few miles out of Montgomery, Alabama. BamaMan were very welcoming and we enjoyed many discussions with them about the area and its history, also about the finer points of boondocking. It was a good base for touring the many Civil Rights historical sites in the area.

We arrived in the rain, but Mike was waiting outside to see us on to the property and make us welcome. He came out later, umbrella in hand, to offer the password to their wi-fi.

Incredible Hospitality

We recently had the pleasure of staying with Mike and Pat, and their hospitality was incredible! They made sure we had everything we needed for the night, full hookups, pads for our camper jacks, and they had a wonderful creek out back where we could watch the sun set and throw rocks. Mike was sure to give us as many tips for directions and good boondocking spots before we left. If we ever come through again, which I'm sure we will, I will be sure to look up Mike and Pat again!
