Country setting – the 25 foot parking site is an easy back in, mostly level, concrete surface with 30amp or 20amp, as well as water hook up and Wifi. The site is shaded early morning and late afternoon. We ask that your total rig be no more than 25 feet. At this time we are only able to host class C and class B+ RV's due to our HOA. We also ask that you not extend your awning (slide OK) and also that you do not use chairs or a BBQ grill near your rig. We do offer a private, shaded patio just for our guests, which includes a table & chairs, Wifi and plenty of room to set up a BBQ. Our Boondocking location is a great overnite stop for any BW member traveling North or South on Interstate 81.
Pets - One dog limit, no aggressive breeds, must be on leash at all times and waste picked up. Cats must remain inside RV at all times due to severe allergies.
Trash - guests must take all trash with them when they depart.
Arrival Time - Please do not arrive after sunset. Day of arrival - please phone or text arrival time window.
No smoking on property
We are located less than five miles off I-81. All roads are well paved for an easy in and out. Please Note: we are located in the country and none of the roads have lights. We would ask and highly recommend that you NOT plan on arriving after dark as it would be a stressful situation.
We travel quite a bit, but if we are home you are welcome. Most of our trips are scheduled ahead of time so we generally know well in advance if our Boondocking spot will be available. Send us a message and we will see if we can host you on the date you need. At the present time we would like to limit our Boondocking spot to a seven month period (May 1st to November 30th). We are looking forward to your visit!
In our opinion, a short overnight visit at “Travelers Rest” does not leave room for sightseeing. It is our recommendation that our guests just relax and enjoy our peaceful, country setting. We will be happy to share our firepit, sunsets over the pond, bright stars and if you time your stay just right, you get deer and turkey as a bonus. If golf is your game and your clubs are on-board, 27 holes are close by. If you must jam pack your visit, here are a few things to do in the area:

I had been traveling for 3 weeks, met wonderful people. Traveling with a disability has been challenging, and doing it solo was something family worried about, but I’ve found the hosts in Boondockers Welcome to be wonderfully helpful. I was traveling during the pandemic and had those concerns but on top of that my rig had a few extra troubles pop up, adding to my hurdles.
From the first email interaction, it was obvious that Travelers Rest would exceed those expectations. I was not wrong. They went out of their way to anticipate and care for any and every need. I feel truly blessed to have made their acquaintance and am glad to have made a new friendship. They have a beautiful home in a beautiful area. This is a stop I will go many many miles out of my way to visit again.
Travelers Rest are great hosts. Very helpful and hospitable
. They made us feel like we were part of our family. We would welcome them anytime and hope to come this way again,
Beautiful, peaceful spot with tremendously helpful and hospitable hosts. Travelers Rest, thank you so much for a lovely boondocking site on your property. Thanks for the Wi-Fi, electric and water hook up and thank you for the cheese plate. You went above and beyond. We will be back.
