Description

I have several sites available on two acres. All have water & sewer one has 50A, 2 have 30 A. Donation for electric $3/night--when using electric heat or 50A

These are on grass which is kept mowed. Some shade trees, but satellite is accessible
We attempt to keep our sites "big rig" friendly. With a 12' 6" high RV I've learned this is often a problem.

House Rules

Prefer guests who are able to reciprocate. (i.e.: are you able to provide a site for our rig--40')

Prefer at least 3 day notice--we don't have good wifi, so I don't check email daily.

Because of our location and winter climate, it's best to request date early.

We are in a rural area, across the street from a strawberry field.
We like to be considerate of the neighbors and expect our guests to do the same.

Access Road Conditions

We're at the corner on 2 county paved roads, only a mile from I-4.

Just call or email for hints/detailed directions.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Plenty of room--all grass. Mostly level--about 1 acre. About 100' to nearest street.

Availability

We are home during most of the winter months Oct- Mar.

Location

Dover ( Tampa area), FL, United States of America

Suggested Local Attractions

Busch Gardens , Disney, Gulf beaches, Tampa bay, Tampa Aquarium,Lowry Park Zoo.

Close to grocery shopping and several malls within 10 miles.

5 miles to Lazy Days, 1 mile to Campingworld.

Amazing site

Doverguy and his wife were not home, one of the neighbors came over and showed us where to set up. The site was beautiful which we could have stayed one more night just to relax!

What a great setup- they've gone all-out for their guests. We wish we'd gotten to know our hosts better. A nice quiet spot.

Excellent hosts, perfect location. Hosts were very helpful providing information about the area . Shared great conversation over a nice fire and really appreciated their RV setups. Our dog Sage was treated like a family member and we are most appreciative of our stay. Thank you Dick and Pat.

Perfect hosts

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Orange Grove in January of 2018. You couldn’t ask for better hosts, kind, considerate, friendly, and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with them.

Awesome once again

I stayed with these wonderful folks about a year ago and recently when I contacted them about another stay, they were just as warm and welcoming.

The full hookups were so appreciated on the hot FL days!

It's a great location near I4. And if you're there in strawberry season, tooooo <emoji> convenient to fabulous shortcake at Parkesdale Farms!

What can I say, fantastic hosts!

Stayed with them last year in April, great visit. Stayed again in November 2016 and for a couple nights in March 2017. They have always been extremely nice and helpful hosts. Boondockers Welcome hit a home run when Doverguy signed up to be a host. I echo what everyone else says . . . what a bonus to have full hookups while boondocking.

Nice People, Great Setup

We spent a few night boondocking at doverguy's location and the experience couldn't have been better. They are wonderful people and we really enjoyed our stay. The location was incredibly convenient and the water, electric and sewer setup was fantastic. We would recommend doverguy's location without hesitation. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

A Great Introduction to Boondocking

My wife and I spent four nights boondocking with Doverguy this week and it was a great experience for us, and a great introduction to boondocking, since it was our first time. He and his wife have a great setup with plenty of room for several RVs to camp at one time, conveniently located near I-4. They made us feel very welcome and we would highly recommend them as hosts for anyone traveling in the area.

Excellent host

I stayed 3 nights on Doverguy's beautiful property in Jan '17. He and his wife are lovely, great hosts and so very accommodating. This was my first stay using boondockers welcome and I couldn't have been happier. He has 30A hook ups with water and sewer. He is also located in an ideal location in Tampa, not too far off of the highways with plenty of room to maneuver. I would definitely stay again!

Thanks again Doverguy for having me your hospitality was greatly appreciated!

Wonderful folks and location

I stayed with Doverguy Oct. 21, 2016. The location is convenient to Tampa and Orlando. I enjoyed not only the RV amenities but also our conversations about RVing, life, and family. I highly recommend their awesome hospitality. They even offered my dog the use of the fenced yard by their house!

Super nice Hosts !!!

Stayed with these hosts over the Easter weekend. Extremely nice couple. We accepted a invitation to attend Easter services with them, very glad we did. Hope all hosts that we meet through Boondockers Welcome are as nice as they are. Extra nice to have full hookups for the RV.

A wonderful experience!

Dick and Pat are wonderful hosts. We stayed here while we went to the Tampa Supershow which is just a short drive away. They were so hospitable and could not do enough for us. The site is huge and we had access to electricity, water and a dump station if we needed them.

excellent hosts

We spent two days here sharing their hospitality with a couple other boondockers. What a ball. The whole group intermingled. We felt sorry for Dick as he serviced everyone's needs in the pouring rain with a smile. We will be back again and had promises they will be up to visit us as well.

Great folks with a super place to stay

This was our first boondocking experience and we are happy that Dick and his wife shared their place with us. Great easy parking with full hookup during our stay and they provided many helpful travel tips during our stay. If you're passing through the Tampa Orlando alley on I-4 we highly recommend visiting with these folks. Easy access to interstate and multiple shopping options in the area. Hope to see y'all down the road.

Wonderful place to stay

Very nice accommodating couple. They had a rally to attend, but let us stay. Full hookup if needed and both 30 and 50 amp available! There are a number of spots on grass and lots of room for any size rig. The location is easy to find and not far from I-4. We had a peaceful quiet night.
