We live on 8 acres west of Townsend. There is a pond for those who like to fish. There's some good size bass, crappies, and catfish, among others. There is plenty of room to turn around and it's nice and quiet. I have a 30 amp RV power outlet on the back of the house that will reach to the driveway with an extension cord. There is a dump station at the Smyrna rest area about 8 miles south. $10. We're 20 miles from Dover Downs for you race fans and there is also free water and dump there. The beaches are about 80 miles.
6oo foot gravel driveway.
There's plenty of room for a tow vehicle, either on the driveway or off to the side.
Hard to say now that we're retired. However, we're never far from the Internet. Give us a shout! I put in the two day notice requirement for when we are out of range, but it's always worth a try.
We had an absolutely wonderful stay - host's brother-in-law was on site to greet us and get us parked and hooked up - which was wonderful. It was a relatively easy turn around with our 35' TT. The property was absolutely beautiful and the kids loved having grass to run and play in - plus a pond to explore. We saw a crane and frogs - and tons of clams - it was so much fun for the kids!
We drove about an hour and a half into Philly to see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall - and also spent time in New Castle exploring the First State National Monument.
Thanks so much!!
Very nice host to speak with on the phone. had good info on things to do and see and had a perfect set up for Boondocking
Had a restful stay at this great location even though we had to arrive a day later then originally requested. Terry and Malcolm were not there to greet us, but Terry's brother made us feel right at home. So thankful that we had electricity as it was so hot. Hope to one day meet Terry as this is our second time here.
We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful location. We hope to return again as we felt very comfortable.
Although the hosts were away their brother greeted us. So enjoyed the peaceful setting, great sunrises and sitting by their beautiful pond. Close to historical areas and conviences. Couldn't be better!
We stayed two nights and enjoyed the hospitality! 75 minute easy drive to Philly. Hosts even accepted delivery of my Fed Ex package prior to our arrival. Such a blessing. Highly recommend!
What an amazing piece of heaven! Wonderful people and an amazing brother that went above and beyond to help us and make us feel comfortable!!!!
We're so grateful to our hosts for this amazing spot to park for a few days! Their property is beautiful and quiet and easily accessible with our 28' camper with a slide-out. Our hosts were very welcoming!
We took one day to drive to Philadelphia and another to spend some time in Dover, both easy drives not too far.
We also had a neighbor, a fellow boondocker staying the same time as us, and we very much enjoyed meeting them! A wonderful bonus to using this site.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Our family had a wonderful stay at Malcolm and Terry's place, even though our hosts themselves we're away they made sure we had someone there for us (a beautiful human being) who took his time to help us set up. We shared camp space with another great family, they had the same age daughter as ours, that in itself was a dream come true for us, knowing that our daughter could play with someone while boon docking. Burt set us up with water and 30 amp hookup overlooking a beautiful view of a large pond with Geese swimming about. If anyone is tired and wants rest in paradise don't miss this great spot.
Our first thought as we pulled into the long driveway was OMG! What a beautiful place! We had plenty of room to park our 40 ft. motorhome and Malcolm had a 30 amp cord and water hose all ready for us. We were greeted by Bert who was very nice and told if we needed anything just let him know. After setting up we took a walk around the beautiful pond and out to the road. Later we took another walk and watched the sun go down and it was spectacular. We would recommend Terry and Malcolm's place for anyone passing through this area. We are so thankful for being invited to this wonderful location. We hope to come back and meet you in the future.
This place is amazing. A quiet place to watch wildlife. I just keep shaking my head about this beautiful area. How could we have not been to Delaware before. Wow.
I arrived on Monday evening & left on Thursday about noon.
WOW! My time here honesty went to fast.
The hosts are great & this place is honestly beautiful,
and during the owners absence, Bert was very helpful &
he does an amazing job at maintaining the natural beauty of this place.
And doing anything he can to make their guests comfortable.
It would be my pleasure to return again!
Thank you Terry and Malcom!
This was an awesome site! Plenty of room to maneuver and the site was level. The fact that the host was not on site but still allowed us to boondock says a lot about them. They even allowed us to have our mail forwarded to their address. We were bummed that we did not get to speak with the host personally, but the communication via email and text was great. We will request to stay again when passing through the area.
Oh my! What a lovely place to stay for the night. Quiet except for the beautiful sounds of nature including frogs and owls. Loved watching bunnies race across the fields, fireflies light up at night and geese waddle toward the pond in the morning. Communication with our hosts was a breeze. Lots of room and easy to park. Thank you so much!
We didn't get to meet our hosts but we had an enjoyable time srayi g at this perfect spot. There is a pond with fish, turtles and geese. Easy to get into. Quiet peaceful sleep. A good stop to make.
This was our first stay with Boondockers Welcome and it was superb. The grounds are beautiful. There were many different bird sounds including peacocks, which we had never heard before. A very peaceful and enjoyable experience. Thank you!
Although Malcolm and Terry were out of town, we connected by phone and his brother in law helped get everything ready for me. I am a newbie but it was so easy with everything ready. I so appreciate the hospitality and hope to catch them home next time. Truly a quiet wonderful stay away from all the hustle and bustle. Thanks so much!
The owner was Very helpful with setup and the place had the best views around. Lots of land for the kids and dog to enjoy. Loved staying there.
Thanks to our host. unfortunally we din't had the chance to meet. It would be nice to see you another time. Your place is beautifilul and very quiet. Thanks for your generosity
Louis and suzanne
Although I didn’t actually get to meet my hosts, I spoke several times on the phone with them… They are just lovely people! Their brother-in-law was there to greet me and help me set up my RV… He was very knowledgeable, friendly and very personable. He took all the worry out of my first Boondocking trip in my new RV! This experience/location deserves a 10 plus rating!!! Looking forward to returning here sometime in the near future! Kathy
This was my second time staying with Terry and Malcolm,. I got to see Burt again and only have to say,. Thanks and let me mow the next time I come
Wishing you well sorry for the delay
We had a great first time Boondocking and you couldn't ask for a better location, spent 2 nights with great views of Malcolm's lake also did some fishing catching bass and blue gills. 100% recommended location...
This was the perfect location for visiting Philadelphia. Beautiful property and gracious hosts! Thank you!
Malcolm and Terry are amazing hosts.
We are new RVers and there are tons of things we still do not know about this new lifestyle. Malcolm helped us with a lot of things including the set up and how to know better our RV. He did it with a smile and great humor. We can’t thank him enough for what he did and what he taught us.
The property has great views of a lake and we truly enjoyed the fall scenery of the trees and surroundings.
Thank you Malcolm and Terry.
I cannot say enough great things about this host and their lovely property! So peaceful and quiet! They greeted us, helped us get parked and set up with both water and electric. Our dog really enjoyed being able to run freely around the pond and we enjoyed walking in the back! We will definitely pop-in next time we are in the area.
We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property. It was quiet and peaceful.
Our host was very accommodating when we had to change dates a couple times due to travel plan changes.
He was also very helpful when helping us back in with our 39 foot rig.
Our toddler also enjoyed having space to run around and we enjoyed viewing their gorgeous property.
We were unfortunately unable to stay the whole time due to a family emergency but we do recommend staying here and we are hoping to come back in the future.
We could stay with Malcom & Terry during a heavy night with lots of rain and thunderstorm. No problem as we were safely placed on the driveway of their more than beautiful property that let us feel to visit the president. Even more valued were the chats we had with Malcom. We highly enjoyed our short stay and say « thank you guys ».
Beautiful property! Nicest people ever! Hope to visit again.
So beautiful and quiet! They welcomed us, offered us water and electric and we were able to see them in passing a few times in our 2 day stay. We caught 15 fish out of their catch & release pond. Our girls enjoyed all the space.
We really enjoyed our first stay in Delaware. Terry and Malcolm were very accommodating and friendly. They have a beautiful spot, that is serenely quiet and peaceful. It's close to the city, which is where we went the lost few days, so it was nice to have a great spot for home base, that we could enjoy while we were home. If you're looking for a quality place, with some very nice people, this is your spot. Thank you so much for hosting us, we really appreciate it.
Thanks to Terry and Malcolm to host us for four days as we escaped the hurricane that hit the east coast while we were camping at Ocean City area. They have a wonderful big property with lots of room for the trailer. Thanks again and if you are up our way in Toronto, look us up. Allen and MaryLynn
The owners were not at home, unfortunately as subsequently we have heard so much about them.
The Brother-in-Law however welcomed us and showed us around and was very nice. Their place is amazing, beautiful with a huge pond and we enjoyed walking around the property! Everything was perfect and we look forward to stopping on our next trip south.
We stayed 2 nights. Was very quite. Thanks for offering such a great place.
Love, Love, Love this spot. Terry and Malcolm were so easy to work with especially when our plans and route changed. They were so great with the flexibility of our stay. Although due to schedules we never actually got to meet them as they were busy during our stay, and we were off playing tourist. They were wonderful to have their brother meet us to get us all set up and show us around the property. He was great. Now for the property all I can say is wow! Such a beautiful place. If you love nature this is the place to relax. They have a beautiful property and they give you their back yard (which is huge) to park on! The ground was level and they had 30amp, water and cable! Very easy to park as there is a large area to turn around and pick your spot. We are 45ft long and had tons of space. They have a huge pond right next to the camp area where we enjoyed watching 2 families of geese swim. We also saw deer near the woods at the back of their property and a peacock cruising by on top of all the birds, and other pond friends. We did not fish, but heard it was great fishing and they are happy to have you fish. They allowed our dogs to run off the leash and our dogs loved running their property. I would walk with our dogs around the property and just couldn't help but smile the entire time. On top of all this greatness we explored their area of Delaware, which was beautiful and it was a short hour drive into Philly on a Sunday where we enjoyed the day exploring. Thank you again Terry and Malcolm!
We stayed here for three nights, it was great for us. The property was easy to drive into, flat, had a good electric and water hookup and a nice pond filled with fish. My husband and dog spent many hours entertained by this pond while I worked! Cell service is spotty, but with a hotspot we were able to work remotely. We briefly met one of the hosts, he was very nice and truely wanted us to enjoy our stay. The town is about 10-15 minutes easy driving away with any store you'd need for supplies and food.
We were so blessed to have found this spot. Terry and Malcolm could have not been more accommodating. Very kind and generous! We really enjoyed our stay there- the property was beautiful and we had everything we needed!!!
Spent 2 nights there. Host provided 15 amp service, but only because they had a second big rig there with 30.
Beautiful location. Peaceful.
This was our first stay with Boondockers Welcome and it was wonderful. Malcom was incredibly helpful and kind even though he wasn’t home. He made sure to contact us and let us know what to expect and how to set up our rig. It was one of the prettiest campsites we have had in eight months on the road. What a great experience. Thanks so much! 😁
Easy to find, easy to get in and out with our huge Motorhome and car. Malcom greeted us and got us situated. We had time to chat a few minutes before he had to leave. We felt very welcome and safe here. The property is beautiful.
Feel like we have known these folks our whole life but have yet to meet. Can't thank them enough for allowing us to stay even though they were not there to greet us. Beautiful location close to a great park and small towns. Im sure we will meet in our travels one day soon. Until then safe journey.
Susie and Matt
We really appreciate de calm and serenity of Terry and Malcom. We hope we see them again.
Thanks for the hospitality.
Terry and Malcolm were great host, and the location was great as well. There is a huge pond, and we enjoyed catching tons of bass, and sunfish. The location is close to Philly, which is an amazing city to visit. We really enjoyed our time here, and would recommend it to anyone.
We really enjoy their wonderful property. It's a little gem in the countryside of Delaware.
We hope to see them next time for thanks them for their generous hospitality.
What a beautiful property and easy to get to from Google map directions.
Correspondence with owners was effortless and responses were received in a timely manner. We did not get to meet them but her brother was there to greet us and explain where to set up.
It was a quick overnight stop on our way through Delaware and wished we would have had more time to visit the area. After setting up, groceries and fuel were a short drive away.
We should have tried our luck in the pond!
Thank you for offering this awesome, quiet, and peaceful spot.
We had a very warm but hurried welcome at Malcolm and Terry's place as we got there late and Terry had to leave very early the next morning. He was very helpful, providing electric which was much appreciated as the temperature was in the 80s and very muggy. Hoping we can come back and have a longer stay in the future. Neat guy with beautiful site. Had a restful night after a long day travelling on our way home on last leg of journey.
We wanted to Thank Malcolm for his wonderful hospitality and generous spirit. He has a beautiful home and property in a great location in Delaware. We really enjoyed the time we spent with him. Take care and we'll hope to see you again. Your new friends, Mark and JoAnn.
We are sorry that we did not meet our hosts. We did have a nice quiet spot. The pond and fishing was a plus. Hope to see you some time.
I must say that this is the most beautiful place that we have boondocked. I talked to Malcolm several times because they were not going to be home but made us feel very at home. All correspondence were received very quickly. I can't say enough great things about this place.
Terry and Malcolm were our first boondockers experience, and we were so happy to have met them! He was out of town for work, but still had the time to meet us and to accommodate us, and his pond... omg! I fished there every day! Rain or shine i was out fishing, the family loved it, thank you so much for opening the gates and welcoming us! Definitely recommend!!
The M Family!
I contacted Malcom,, he said he would be away but Bert was there mowing when i arrived.
Bert was a great and cheerful relative, mowing the lawn,,, he asked if i needed anything like a hookup
but i prefer no hookups so i simply parked and enjoyed the beautiful location, breezes and area
Terry and Malcolm were the most welcoming hosts. They helped us out with our RV Lil'Chief and were a total delight to deal with. Quick reply to my request. Warm, caring and a lot of humor. We enjoyed a nice dinner together and parking was a dream for our little RV. I can't thank them enough for all they did for us.
Can't recommend Terry and Malcolm ENOUGH!! Hope to see them again soon!
Roy and I enjoyed our brief stay with Malcolm. We visited a while and enjoyed the conversation! We highly recommend this host to anyone that will be in the area. Our 39 foot home easily fit there! Thanks for graciously opening this space for us!
These kind folks were able to give us a spot even though they were away at the time. We were well looked after by family members at the house who provided a quiet spot and some power. Beautiful setting and very peaceful. Also very convenient to get to from the main roads.
We stayed for two nights and had a nice relaxing time here. T welcomed us and we felt right at home.
My wife Cindy and I are full timers traveling the entire country. When we got to Delaware we were looking for a place to burn up some time before our next gig. We emailed Malcolm and he got back to us in less than an hour. Terry was unavailable the time we were there, but if she's as accommodating as Malcolm was...Holy cow! Malcolm and I sat out a "few nights" sipping on wine and setting the world in order. We had such a great time. It was close to being the most absolutely beautiful, quiet and peaceful place we've stayed since we went on the road. Malcolm... you're the best! See you soon on the sunny side of the street! ;) Thanx, GT/CT
Not only are they kind and welcoming people, their property is beautiful and quiet. They opened their place up to us in a big way, even offering dinner and a most welcome shower. Thank you so much!!
Malcom and Terry have a beautiful property. We truly enjoyed our discussion with Terry. Malcom was away helping is Dad recooperating from major surgery. We had a safe quiet area to park
Picture perfect site with warm, gracious host. The site is a little off the beaten path, but delightful. Hope they can come visit us.
Terry was visiting family, but Malcolm was a wonderful host. We enjoyed the quiet of the country without being remote. May sure you bring your long cable cord. May 19, 2014
WOW! I had a really great stay at this wonderful place! Malcolm was the best host and hooked me up with electric and cable! Sweet! I had a chance to sit out by the pond in the sunshine while my dog ran around the acreage! I was even included in a gathering on Saturday night for dinner. Thank you so much! High recommendations from me! Carolynb28
We stayed w/ Terr & Malcolm back in Oct on our way to the wilds of FL.
They were incredible hosts. Gave us our choice of camping locations w/ evrey available service - water, elec cable even air for a low tire.
Their home & property are great. We were extremely grateful for their hospitality & meeting them
We were visiting the Newark, DE area to visit grandkids. Terry and Malcolm graciously allowed us to stay in their beautiful backyard. Unfortunately we only got to spend nights here due to our busy schedule. We rested peacefully each night in their quiet environment, ready to go at the crack of dawn. We hope we can see them at our place in Florida someday.
We stayed with Malcolm for just 1 night last week. We did not have the pleasure of meeting Malcolms wife Terry as she was away. Malcolm was a great host and made us feel very welcome. We wished we had more time to stay another night, especially as there was great food on offer :) Nice quiet location, electric and water hook up on level ground.
