Rural setting on the west side of Lake Wylie (not on the lake) just 40 minutes from downtown Charlotte. You can dry camp in open grass area near house. Not completely flat so a little leveling will be needed but not much.
Have fun and stop in to say hello. We love to talk about everyone's travels. Pets are welcome but please keep them at campsite. There are other pets in the area so want to keep all happy. There is a field next to house that you can walk your pets if you like.
Easy access off gravel road. Stay on gravel road to top of hill and keep right to last house at the end of road.
You can park tow vehicle next to rig.
We travel as well so just drop us an email to check availability.
Carowinds, NASCAR hall of fame, Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens, US Whitewater Rafting center, Lake Wylie just to name a few.
We echo the reports of others, that This couple could not have been nicer, and the site is private, wooded, quiet and makes Charlotte accessible. We would love to return if we get the chance. Two words.... Stay here!
We never got to meet John, as he was out if town. His daughter Erin as there greeted us warmly. The place was lovely and we were surrounded by woods, very private.
We will definitely return when we are in the area!!
Our stay at the Eagles Nest was our first experience with this site. We were warmly welcomed at the site and got to talk a bit with our lovely hosts. Sadly we didn’t stay long since we had to leave the very next morning but even with our short stay it was very nice.
We enjoyed our stay here at the eagle’s nest. John and Lisa have a great spot, and want to make sure you enjoy your stay. This is a real boondocing experience. You feel like you’ve got your own private spot in the woods, but you’re not far from the city as well. Thanks for letting us stay.
The Eagles Nest made a great respite from our city touring. John and Lisa made us feel very welcome and it was great to sit, chat, and exchange adventure stories. No world problems were solved but then again they weren’t brought up. John however was a great help in resolving the mysteries of vapor lock. One less gremlin to deal with. Thanks guys.
We really enjoyed our stay on John's beautiful property. It's in a great location with a lot of shopping and restaurants nearby. We were able to run our generator without feeling like we were disturbing anyone since the site is at the front of John's long driveway. It was great meeting John and Lisa, and we truly appreciate them allowing us to stay. We hope to see them back in AZ, maybe up at the Grand Canyon?
Oh my lands, my first official boondocking welcome stay, and I can't say enough about this wonderful family! On the way to their house there was trouble with my van. They took care of my van, trailer and the pets, I was made safe and sound, could not thank them enough. The stay was quiet and peaceful, with a large area to take my dogs exploring we did a lot of walking!. To wake up and see a deer crossing the field next to the house was a sight to see. John with his experience gave me sound advice about my trailer and helped by repairing my outside lights and steered me to a local business. Thanks again!
We stayed for one night and it was easy to find. Parking spot was elevated grassy With no soft/wet spots even though it was raining and snowing. Friendly communication, came over and said hello in the morning.
One of his neighbors had some dogs on the loose while I was
walking mine down the gravel road but I think it was bad timing, owner came over right away.
Nice place to relax. Thanks a bunch. close to city but out in the quiet countryside
