This is our 3rd or 4th stay with these good folks and even though we could not interact as much as in the past because of you know the Covid-19 virus we still enjoyed the short visit we had with them. They are always welcoming and have a smile to share (still visible with mask on). May God bless each of you and protect you through out your days.
Until next time
We received a very warm welcome from PerryGinnyGeorgia as soon as we arrived. They guided us to our parking place and offered to help us get set up. They have a beautiful place, with huge shade trees and gorgeous gardens. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with these kind and friendly folks!
The campground is a wonderful peaceful place, and the hosts are very friendly and also, during this covert time, respectful of social distancing and masks. They are very giving and we appreciated our stay with them so much
This is our first Boondockers Welcome visit. Perry and Ginny were super friendly and very welcoming. The place is a haven. We pulled in without any trouble, made a circle around a big oak, and hooked up. The tree limbs may be a problem for a high profile rig but was not an issue with our travel trailer. The grounds are well maintained and full of beautiful plants. Thank you, Perry and Ginny, for a safe and beautiful place for the night.
We were met by Ginny upon arrival, and she lead us to our site, the 30 amp was a blessing because of the heat. We were under a large old tree that shaded our Camper and allowed us to sit outside. Ginny gave us a tour of their beautiful gardens and HO train layout, that has to be seen to appreciate the detail. Later Perry came by on the 4 wheeler with Ginny and we visited for a long time and realized we had both lived in the same town in Wash. A second RV was coming and the lady called and said they would be several hours late, Ginny stayed up till after 10:30 to help them in. I had left a review right after our visit but it is not posted. I had said that if Boondockers Welcome required an orientation to be a great host, this is where they should send them to train. Thank you Ginny and Perry we hope to return again.
Candy Cane Corral is definitely the place to stay in the Texarkana area. Lovely level sites, 50 Amp service, water and even a dump station, but that is not the best part. The best part is meeting Perry and Ginny, a lovely retired couple who met us at the front of the property in their golf cart and lead us to our site. They readily invite guests into their home (maintaining COVID safe protocols, of course) to visit and view their incredible Christmas village consisting of over 100 buildings, 750 figurines and 2000 trees – and Ginny can tell you where and when they got each and every item. We will be back!
We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Candy Cane Corral. This is a location with hosts that are hard to leave. The need for social distancing made interactions a bit limited, but the hosts are warm and engaging. About the location, easy on/off freeway access, straightforward easy directions. If you arrive from the North, you will be driving down the access highway southbound, you will need to make a right hand turn into the property. Take your time to approach slowly and position yourself for the wide turn into the drive. There is some traffic on the road, but they really will wait for you. We stayed here in a 45’ MH, with a tow vehicle. We easily backed into our spot and did not have the need to put the jacks down. Close to town for groceries. Will definitely be returning.
This place is so pretty. We arrived late because of delays in leaving. They were there at 11 waiting for us and shows us to our spot. Very friendly. I would for sure go back!
I can't believe how nice this entire experience was. Getting in and out was incredibly easy, hookups were right there, and they were the nicest people. They even helped me out with an adapter that I didn't have. I got a vibe from the hosts that they were the kind of nice you just don't see very much anymore. It's too bad the whole coronavirus thing kept us from spending more time with them - I'm sure it would have been extremely enjoyable. I hope that I get a chance to come back in the future and enjoy their hospitality even further.
We had enjoyable one night stay; the property has blooming flowers, trees and fruit galore. I had a nice morning conversation with Perry while honoring social distancing. Ginny was helpful in getting into our parking spot; we are traveling with a 34 foot Class A motor-home and a toad; we didn't need to detach the tow. Our spot was shaded by a giant tree.
We'll be back some day!
We so enjoyed our stay at this lovely location. Hosts were the best. Will be staying here again, if they will allow us
So much love flowing from this home. These are some of the most thoughtful and generous hosts anywhere. Everything was perfect, from the welcome right through to the good bye. This was our second stay and it won't be the last. Thanks all.
It was so amazing to be with you even though I was alone. Your hospitality and friendship is so great and I am happy to have had a visit.
Thanks again for everything
This was our very first stay with a Boondockers Welcome host. We were blessed to have such a nice experience. As we were in a hurry to get home, because of the coronavirus happenings, we had very little notice. It didn't matter to Candy Cane Corral! They graciously accepted our request. We are so grateful for our short stay and do hope to return again! Blessings for these fine people.
Mike and Kathy
We were immediately greeted and our hosts were so friendly! There was plenty of space To maneuver our 42' 5th wheel. We hope to be back in the area this fall and stay again so that we have more time to visit with them!
Perry, Ginny and Georgia are the neatest people! Check the title😄. They invite u to dinner in their home on the first night of your stay with them, the food was excellent!! Lasagna with homemade sauce made from tomatoes they grew, delicious!! Beautiful salad, bread and a strawberry dessert that was the same as one I fix from my mother's recipe and I have never seen one like it anywhere else. It is so special in our family it is our Easter dessert every year😁. Their home and property r so beautiful, inside and out, trees, flowers, water ponds and fountains, u can tell they love taking care of things and making it beautiful and homey. The table she set was amazing, not overly fancy but so special with fresh flowers from her yard, cloth napkins, napkin rings that held water and fresh flowers💐! But the hosts r what make it truly special! They invite u into their home so u can get to know each other, and what fun!! Stories, laughter, prayer before meals, u just feel at home immediately!! We can't wait to come back so we can spend more time just visiting with them! This is only our second stay with a BW family and they have shown us how much fun it can b to b a host! Thanks so much "Candy Cane Corral" our stay was a real gift! God bless u all!
A stop to see Perry, Ginny and Georgia is like coming home to family that you want to visit. We ended up staying a couple days more waiting on a part. If you get the chance to stop here you are in for a treat.
We can not thank you enough for welcoming us to your home. It was a real treat to have dinner with you. We wish we could have stayed longer. It is people like you that make Boondockers Welcome one of the best parts of the RV life. Best wishes until our paths cross again.
The first words that come to mind are Kind Generous and Welcoming...... I guess that's what they mean by "Southern Hospitality"
What a wonderful perfect place to stay.....ask to check out their amazing miniature scale village....
Everything they do seems to be a labor of love.
Thanks PerryGinnyGeorgia for participating and being part of the "Boondockers Welcome Family"
David & Judy Hale
We enjoyed the heck out of our stay with these warm hearted folks. It was too short and hope to be back to stay again sooner than later. Be sure to stop by if you're anywhere close. You won't be disappointed.
It was so nice to meet you both. Thank you again for your hospitality!
First off, I apologize for this review being so delinquent; it truly slipped my mind.
Our stay here was absolutely wonderful. Candy Cane Corral is a true Shangri-la just outside Texarka. Our entire rig is 60’ in length, and our host guided us in expertly. Our hosts were some of the kindest folks we’ve had the pleasure of meeting on our journey, and Candy Cane Corral itself is a destination!
We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Their hospitality is amazing. They invited us for dinner or first night and didn't judge us for our energetic 3 kids :) Great parking area and plenty of space for our kids to play outside. Thanks for being great hosts. If we find ourselves in the area again we will be back!
Perry and Ginny are so gracious and welcoming. They make me want to live with them. It was such a joy speaking with them and hearing about some of their adventures. We feel like we have made friends for life and we will be back to visit. Thank you Perry and Ginny.
Excellent stay! Absolutely can not say enough positives about our hosts. They made our first boondocking experience a great one! Also an incredible property! We would definitely stay there again!
I truly cannot day enough about these good people; their generosity; their lively spirit; their dedication. The stop was worthwhile if only to view the incredible lighted village and Christmas decor they have on display, but there is so, so much more, not to mention full hook ups and disposal, too. We enjoyed their company so much that we stayed on an extra day when encouraged to do so. These three hit the ball out of the park.
This is my second time staying at the Candy Cane Corral. I couldn't ask for a better place to park, the hosts are a fun family with a great attitude. They enjoy meeting their guests and making them feel at home.
This is our visit to a Boondockers Welcome and we have been spoiled to all others I’m certain! Going to Candy Cane Corral was like going home to visit family. We were greeted instantly by Ginny, and shown a lovely spot to park. We had dinner that evening with Ginny, Miss Georgia, and another boondockers... it was wonderful. Perry wasn’t feeling well, so we are already looking forward to coming back so we can spend time with him as well.
Thank you, thank you for a wonderful introduction to Boondockers Welcome!
We had the pleasure of meeting Perry, Ginny and Georgia at their amazing boondocking site! Not only do they allow visitors in their RV’s, but we were invited to share in the evening meal....and it was fabulous! Then there were their incredible Christmas decorations, inside and outside, which made our jaws drop! These 3 open not only their property, but also their hearts. They have marvelous stories of their lives, and so we spent a lot of time sharing and laughing! We will be back ! Whenever that can happen, it will be a treat.
There's absolutely no way to say enough about such wonderful, generous, welcoming hosts! We enjoyed fantastic meals together, met and exchanged stories with fellow boondockers, and sat outside in peaceful and beautiful surroundings. Everyone is treated as part of their family and we truly treasure this. Our heartfelt appreciation to PerryGinnyGeorgia, we were so blessed to have time together with you.
We had another perfect stay with Perry, Ginny, and Georgia. Can’t say enough of these hosts, they remind me of my basic training unit motto “Second to None”. Thank you again for the dinner and your generous hospitality. Britt said she wants more salad. 😁
Perry and Ginny are amazing people. They open their doors with warmth. They make you feel at home, as if you are part of their family. Their property is peacefully and beautiful. We will definitely comeback to visit them. They will forever hold a spot in our hearts. Grateful for them and their hospitality. 💛
I'm not sure if I can say enough about our second stay with PerryGinnyGeorgia. The fellowship we have around their supper table is what makes visiting with good friends the best. They also had some other boondockers staying, and we all laughed while we shared stories of travel and life with each other. Perry this is a personal heart to heart invitation if you ever find yourself in our home town you are invited to attend church with us and boondock at our house.(lol) Now you do not have any excuses!
Thanks and may God Bless
As soon as we met you we were welcomed and loved. Feeling like family and enjoying your wonderful warm home, but especially your excellent food.
You are kind and loving people and bless many and especially us in our travels.
We are truly thankful and happy we have met you and wish you all the best in your life.
God bless you
Our hosts were amazing. They made us feel like family from the moment we’re arrived. Words cannot express their commitment to making sure all of their guests have everything they need. The nightly fellowship had us all laughing and enjoying a great meal. We can’t wait to plan our next visit to Candy Cane Corral where the Christmas spirit is alive year round.
From the first few minutes of meeting the hosts, we knew it was going to be a great experience. They were joking and fun to talk with from the day we arrived.
They were very generous and made us feel right at home, more like family than just newly found friends.
We hope to visit this most kind host again when back in the area.
This host is so wonder, be assured, you don't want miss this location!
First, I would like to apologise for the delayed review. We had family stuff going on and hadn't been online.
Second, we would like to express our gratitude for being an amazing BW host. We also enjoyed exploring the area and the town close by. Thank you for everything!
Candy Cane Corral just happened to be the right distance and direction to fit my travel plans when I requested to stay for a few days. Upon arrival, I began to wonder how I was guided to select this location.
It has been such a wonderful experience staying with the most kind and generous people you could imagine. It wasn't long before we realized that we had lived in the same neighborhood in Oregon 45 years ago and after many discussions, I then found out I had even gone to the same doctor. It has just been a very special time that will never be forgotten as one of the most enjoyable, spontaneous events of my life. The next time I plan a trip with pins on a map to visit friends, Candy Cane Corral will be on the map as a must stop location.
We stayed 1 night would have stayed longer, but we were on a schedule. Both Perry and Ginny were very welcoming and gracious, made us feel like old friends. They went above and beyond by inviting us into there home for dinner. Thank You both for a great evening.
Ah THE CANDY CANE CORRAL where do we begain. Having just started full timing and on the road for 4 months with very little family around. these are the kind of people you only dream of being able to meet. When you are reading and checking out reviews feel very assured that the CANDY CANE CORRAL is a place that the longer that you stay the harder it will be for you leave. And we would love to turn are traveling around and go back.
If you're in the area, you definitely must stop at the Candy Cane Corral! Easy location off of I-30. The hosts make you feel like you are part of the family by inviting you to dinner & making sure all your camping needs are met. If you are a fan of Christmas villages, you will be pleasantly surprised. We're planning on returning!
These Hosts are so kind and so giving. This is our second stay with them and it couldn't have been a more wonderful experience. We had a family-style dinner with the hosts and a few other Boondockers Welcome guests. It was really nice to meet everyone and talk over a delicious meal. Thanks again to Candy Cane Corral for allowing us to be a part of your ever-growing community.
What a great host and hostess above and beyond our expectations. Such a very nice couple and a big thank you for dinner. A very pleasurable stay for sure.
Our hosts at the Candy Cane Corral are two of the kindest, most hospitable people you could ever hope to meet. They had us, another boondocking couple, and their neighbors over for dinner, and it was a most enjoyable evening. Only a few miles off I-30, it’s a very convenient layover that we look forward to making again. There is plenty of space. There was ample room, even for our rig (40’ motorhome and car trailer).
We were first time users of Welcome Boondockers and this lovely couple has set the bar on the highest rung. We were extremely impressed with the setting, their home , their neighbors, the other guest couple, the wonderful dinner and the conversation. The warm welcome into their home has blessed us immensely. They are the standard to which we would aspire were we to be hosts.
Our second stay. These are great people. Your stay will be worth it
Our first visit with boondocker's welcome was more than I could imagine with PerryGinnyGeorgia. We really appreciate your hospitality. If you find yourself in their area, you must look them up. Thanks so much.
After a long day with our second blow out in two days, we could not have spent the night with better people.
We got there late, after dark. and they welcomed as like long lost friends, without a hint of annoyance at the late hour. They invited us into their amazing home, served us an equally amazing dinner and we had wonderful conversations with very wise people.
I can't thank you enough for such a warm and inspiring visit, so much more then a free spot to park for the night.
We hope to make it back in January in time to see the "real Christmas decorations.".com
George and Bobby
we were thrilled with staying there. the Chicken Picata for dinner was awesome and they even gave us the recipe. we stayed an extra night and they had no problems with extending our stay. They were willing to put their dogs away so ours could go in there in yard. They were very nice and friendly. they are wonderful and down to earth folk. we will be staying again.
Candy cane Corral was my first boondockers stay 3 years ago. I have been back twice and I still enjoy and look forward to coming back to visit. The hosts are kind, caring and love to host. They make you feel like you are family. They love and accept my dog Katie and she loves them. She is a German shepherd and she remembers the places we’ve been and when we come back and pull up the drive she starts whining and looks forward to seeing the hosts. Also got to meet another guest and they were awesome people that will hopefully become friends too. It’s fun making memories and making new friends.
A two night stay at Candy Cane Corral was our first BW experience. Hosts Perry,Ginny and Georgia were simply amazing! The site for our RV was perfect, including 50a service and refreshing well water. We were sheltered by an enormous live oak tree. There is a dump station on site.Perry, Ginny and Georgia have a way of immediately making you feel like old friends. Better yet, we felt like family.The first night you are there, you are invited to share a meal prepared with love by Perry and Ginny. The comic banter between Perry and Georgia will leave you in stitches, We enjoyed the amazing Alpine Village created by Perry and Ginny. We highly recommend a few days at the Corral, We'll be coming back soon.
Very gracious hosts who go above and beyond for their Boondockers. They invited us for dinner, which we were delighted to accept. They obviously enjoy hosting and getting to meet a variety of people. They have a talent for welcoming strangers and making them friends. We’re already looking forward to the next time our travels bring us their way! Thank you, PGG!
Candy Cane Corral is overflowing with generosity, kindness, and amenities! We were lucky enough to share two meals with everyone. They even made us a vegan dessert, which was so appreciated and yummy. On top of all that, they happily allowed us to stay two extra nights so that I could finish up some continuing education that had to be done by October...such a relief!
Thank you all so much for the wonderful stay! Good luck on your adventures!
Bill, Amber, and Herbie
We were very happy to be able to stay a few more days with these wonderful people.
We miss you already..be well.
Staying with Perry, Ginny & Georgia is like staying with family (in a good way). If you don't want to be bothered meeting new people this is not the place for you but then again camping is not for you either. We loved visiting and the site was great. Planning a return stop very soon.
Conversation, laughter, beautiful property, good nights rest and great food!! Our stay with PerryGinnyGeorgia was positively delightful and the dinner they shared with us was absolutely delicious!! Their Christmas village display was an experience in itself. We didn’t want it to end so we’re staying with them again on our way back home. They made us feel like family! We’re so thankful.
We so enjoyed meeting you, Perry, Ginny, and Georgia! You offer great hospitality to weary travelers, and your home and grounds are beautiful. Thanks so much for the hearty meal, and so many stories that you all shared!
We know you are fellow campers, and it was evident in how you planned out the camping site with all amenities included. The live oak tree was a perfect spot! Perry, any time you are ready to trade units, let us know, we appreciated the tour you gave us!
We hope we can be back again soon!
After initially booking for 3 nights.... ended up spending 11 !! ...and that was not enough ! We truly feel like family with these wonderful people. We really feel like we are part of their family and feel totally relaxed while we are staying at this great venue. Thank you once again for sharing everything..... but most importantly, your time .... that will be precious in our memories forever :)
Perry, Ginny, Georgia, Cocky, and Taffy all made our return trip home wonderful just as the they did eight days previously on the outbound leg of our journey. This time, we also got to meet their great neighbors, Fred and Brenda, over another beautiful and lovingly home-cooked dinner!
These folks treated us like family (maybe better!). Perry and I love gigging each other in good fun and seeing who can tell the taller tale. I think I’m in second place. Ginny is a powerhouse of energy and hospitality and Georgia has a great wit that can be sharply pointed (especially in jest at Perry). The laughter in their house is therapeutic.
We are so blessed to have met and come to know this family. We will continue to be in touch and hope they can come north and stay with us sometime. And if we’re headed that way ever again we’ll plan a longer stay just because it’s so much fun and the love and mutual respect is amazing. May God Bless Candy Cane Corral and its marvelous caretakers.
PS: Perry even called me as we were on the road home to say he had forgotten to thank me for my military service. I was so blessed that I forgot to thank HIM for his,,, so here it is Perry - I salute you and thank you, too.
We’ve been hosts since December 2018 and have enjoyed hosting a handful of times so far. But until this week, we had not yet been guests on the BW program. Perry, Ginny, and Georgia were our very first hosts (Ginny tells me that over half of their 50+ guests have been “first-timers”). Here’s an understatement for you – this trio of Ultra Hosts sets the bar for hospitality, generosity, and flat out friendliness!
This experience will be how all other hosts and their amenities will be compared in the future and it provides a purely positive example for us to emulate as we hone our hosting prowess. I won’t reiterate everything that’s been said on all the previous reviews but simply say, “You have to experience this kind of genuine kindness to say you have been hosted to the max.” Their home, the miniature (8’ by 16’) “winter village”, the collections, the stories, the food, and OH, the laughter... Priceless!
We also got to meet and interact with other guests staying with them at the same time, repeat guests from Australia! Phil and Jo were delightful, too, and hopefully will be staying with us in August before they go back “down under”. This “place”, these “personalities”, and these “people” are amazing! They are of strong faith with servants’ hearts and hands. We’re looking forward to seeing them again on our return trip home and we wish we had scheduled more time to enjoy their company. We will the next time. Candy Cane Corral and this family are true treasures.
Great Stay Great Food and even better People. This was such an awesome experience! This Family is amazing. I loved the stories they told and all the laughs we shared! Very sweet people. I can't wait till the next time I'm in the area, so I can stay with them again. They went above and beyond. Anyone in the area needs to come stay with them!
Thank you again for being such great host
We are so grateful that we had the chance boondocking at this place. It was our first time boomdocking, but not our last. We were invited to a delicious meal, in Perry, Georgia and Ginny’s beautiful home. We had a lovely evening talking to these nice people.
We definitely enjoyed our stay, and if we get the chance we will return.
Take care of yourself Georgia, Ginny and Perry - hope to see you soo n.
Mikkel, Carsten og Lone from Denmark
Candy Cane Corral and the hosts are one of those things that legends are made of. Our time spent in this special place will always be remembered fondly. Their story is one of true genuine hospitality and friendship. And we cannot wait to share our experience with the rv community.
Perry, Ginny, and Georgia, we want to thank you again for inviting us into your home and sharing your dinner with us. We truly enjoyed your company, we loved your Bavarian Village, and Cocky and Taffy. Until our paths cross again, Godspeed.
Athos, Porthos and Aramis get out of the way. I know I know you have a candy bar named after you. This trio has you out classed and they own Candy Cane Corral. Perry, Ginny, and Georgia are their names and here’s how they roll.
Georgia is the matriarch and rules with a soft pleasing voice. Do not let this fool you. She can keep you in line and never lay a glove on you. Although it is with pride that I can truly say, she laid a glove on me, with Ginny present of course. I also took a tour in the backseat with Georgia, enough said. Georgia’s story of the two men walking across a bridge is going to give me a lot to study and I love the message.
Ginny has an eye for detail. She is a Designer and one heck of a worker. The home and the landscape are ready for the next issue of Better Homes and Garden. I’ve heard it said that “ bad coffee is grounds for a divorce “ but the way Perry grabs for his coffee we won’t have to worry.
Perry, now this guy is crazy like a Fox. I’m not talking fake news here either. When Perry tells a story, he will occasionally say something in error. This allows Ginny to stay in the conversation and correct him. Respectfully of course. There are many things I could say good about Perry, but he might stick his chest out and aggravate his back.
People say it takes a village to raise a child. Well they got one. Do they ever, it is beyond my ability to even describe it. I can say it’s amazing. You must take a peek and bring a wide-angle lens.
Take a visit with this Trio and they will be the Hosts you compare all others to.
Can't say enough about their welcoming hospitality. Their rv spot is easy to find and easy to set up in. Just want to let you know how much my wife and I appreciated the meal we shared with ya'll and the conversation too. Keep and eye on Georgia Perry, I believe she got it over on you once or twice last night. Thanks again and may God continue to bless each of you!
If you want to experience true generosity, lots of laughter, a genuine sense of "family", good company & good food, then Candy Cane Corral is a must stop in your travels. The miniature "Alpine Village" is just totally awesome. All this, PLUS, there is full hookup with 50 amp service. Looking forward to our next visit!
For our very first Boodock experience we were guests of Perry, Ginny and Georgia ! If this is any indication to the most wonderful folk we will be meeting, this is our life ! When looking for the meaning of true "Hosts", you will find them. With a little coaxing, we were welcomed for an additional night to meet another great couple arriving that evening. The love, laughter and fellowship was the best ! And, to Fred and Brenda, tears in our eyes looking at the beauty ! Georgia, hang on ! We are a comin' with the Harley's soon !
When we studied the profile of our hosts and received their acceptance for our stay with them, we knew that we are heading to an experience we will keep in our hearts. Our expectations were exceeded by far! When we drove up the way, they gave us a welcome that we felt like coming home. Perfect spot for any rig.
We are not allowed to publish what we had experienced, but: if you are on the lucky side of the road and may stay here, you will never regret your decision! We promise! (pls excuse our inferior english, we are not native in that - tks.)
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Perry, Ginny, and Georgia. They welcomed us with a wonderful meal and friendly conversation. They are genuine souls and we felt at home during our stay. Thank you for your generosity and kindness!
We had to arrive a day later due to weather issues. They are wondeeful host. Had a great evening talking with them. Be sure to see the Christmas Village they have built. A lot of work went into it. Highly recommend them. They were our first boondockers experience they were great!!!
We had a great stay at Candy Corral. We had to arrive a day later due to weather issues and the were very accomodating. Had a great talk with them that evening before we settled down for the night. You must see their Christmas Village a lot of work went into it. Highly recommend them to anyone passing through their area
Perry, Ginny and Georgia are wonderful hosts. Their welcoming smile and gracious hospitality make you feel like you are family coming home for a visit. We arrived and got to relax for a few hours before supper. They give you privacy to set up and enjoy your surroundings. We had 3 bars of Verizon 4G without using our booster. We could get 13 channels on the TV using the standard RV Antenna. We walked around enjoying the gardens.before going inside and seeing the amazing model train set up inside the house. Ginny is a magnificent cook and we enjoyed supper immensely. Sitting around the table talking after dinner was so enjoyable, we hated to see the night end. They are three really wonderful, fun people and we are so happy to have spent our first experience with Boon Dockers Welcome at their home.
These hosts are absolutely wonderful. They offer a beautiful site surrounded by trees and lovely gardens with lots of area to walk your dogs (if you have them). But the best part of how welcome they make you feel. We were greeted so warmly as soon as we arrived. They showed us where the hook-ups were located and then left us to set up and relax. We were invited for supper and my goodness, it was absolutely delicious!! We felt like we'd known them for years...we chatted and exchanged RVing stories for hours. Georgia was a special treat...she'd sit quietly and then come out with a zinger! :) These folks are lovely...we highly recommend them as a host and hope to make it back to their area again in the future.
What a wonderful experience meeting Perry, Ginny and Georgia! Such great people with wonderful personalities and giving hearts. We stayed two nights on their gorgeous property which proved to give us two nights of solid and quiet sleep. We were asked to stay for a supper of BBQ ribs, homemade potato salad, baked beans, creamed corn, and the best cream puffs we have ever eaten! Dinner was followed with lots of interesting stories , laughter and conversation until very late in the evening. We visited again our 2nd evening and talked even later that night! We left the next morning feeling like we were leaving our beloved family members. Ginny shared recipes home canned items and her love. Sweet Georgia, keep giving Perry a hard time...he loves it! Thank you Perry for all your help, stories and sharing your home. We hope to see you all again soon!
We had a fabulous time with Perry, Ginny, and Georgia. After a tough day of driving west across Arkansas in driving rain, it was what we needed to have a beautiful dinner and some very spirited conversation lasting well into the evening. It is very obvious that they enjoy sharing their lovely home and if possible we are looking forward to spending another evening with them.
We were greeted promptly when we pulled in and Perry & Ginny got us parked. We were invited in and shared a delicious Dinner and fellowship. Thank you for your great hospitality we really enjoyed our visit with you. Also their Christmas village Is one to be seen, the detail unbelievable. It was a pleasure to meet and make new friends. Hope to see them next trip south. I would not hesitate for a second to plan my route to stay at Candy Cane Corral.
This was our second stay at the Candy Cane Corral and once again, we are blown away by the kindness, generosity and warm-heartedness of our hosts. Not only that, but they have a beautiful property with all the amenities we could hope for!
Perry, Ginny and Georgia welcomed us into their home as family, served us a delicious meal, and entertained us with stories of life and RV experiences. We can’t wait for our next visit!
Great communication. Very friendly couple Perry and Ginny and mother in law Georgia.
Made us dinner upon our arrival cause who wants to cook after driving so long. Yummy.
Water electric and a dump area, not that we needed this but we did use it at one point. Good space for our 5th wheel and truck. You have got to see the Christmas village that they built in part of their house, it is a labor of love.
So glad we stopped and were able to meet such wonderful friends.
We stayed two nights at Candy Cane Corral. We were greeted by the friendliest couple who then invited us for dinner. Dinner was delicious and a treat! We will definitely return if we're ever passing through. Thank you for everything!
Amazing time here. Thank you for the best food we've ever had, from some of the best souls we've ever met. May God bless you all on this journey. Until next time friends, take care. 🙏
We were welcomed with open arms at this stop in North Eastern Texas. Getting there is really easy and the setup is also easy with our 30 foot trailer in tow. We were welcomed to a nice meal and got to spend a lot of time chatting with the hosts. We were fortunate enough to catch the tail end of their X-mas decorations and it is was amazing. Definitely stop here if you are in the area.
First of all, a 1000 thanks for your amazing hospitality! We just spent a couple of nights at their home and we had a great time! Words cannot describe how generous Perry, Ginny and Georgia are! They were waiting for us when we got there, we shared a dinner in their home and we got to visit their out of this world Christmas spirits decorations! Their property is quiet, large enough to manœuvre and they supply full hookups! Our dog Vimy was able to really run off leash. We will come back for sure! See you soon. Veterans on the Loose and Vimy
What a great family..Perry even under the weather..came out to greet us on arrival..very hard working kind family with a heart of gold..we were so welcome it was difficult to leave...thoroughly enjoyed our visit..thank you...Perry you heal fast...and you all take care till our next visit..we look forward to it
What a great family, they all opened their lovely home to us and made staying their absalutly enjoyable over the holidays, it was so nice we plan to do a return trip. Speedy recovery and thank you for opening your hearts...
What a wonderful first boondockers welcome experience. Some of the kindest people we have had the pleasure of meeting. They go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. They even let the girls make mud pies in their yard><. We recommend this stop to anyone and everyone. Thank you very much Perry, Ginny, & Georgia! We look forward to seeing you again one of these days.
It means a lot when you get to come back for a second stay. I didn't get to see much of them because they were away at a church camp nearby. I'm grateful they let me stay anyway. They did stop by to check mail and I got to chat with them briefly. It rained most of the time so it was a mostly stay inside kind of days. I guess I'll have to go back to visit again when they are able to be there. It's nice making new friends and connecting with amazingly wonderful, kind, caring and compassionate people. I had Georgia on my mind and dind't get to see her. :-(
Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised by our hosts very gracious insistence that we use their water & 50 amp hookups even though we do have Solar. Also upon our departure our hosts invited us to use their dump station near the driveway exit.
Then we were shocked by the awsome & very delicious homemade chicken Piccata dinner for which we were invited to join our terrific Hosts in their dining room. We were simply amazed & immediately knew that this three day visit was going to terrific!
These hosts are very amazing & interesting and we do hope to return, especially during the holiday season when they will have their beautiful yard decorated as a Candy Cane Corral?
A very sincere thank you to Perry, Ginny & the very interesting & young 94 yr. old Georgia.

This was our second time staying with these wonderful hosts; they are more like family than just hosts. And we’ll be stopping in again next year along our summertime travels. A++.
We had a wonderful time at our very first Boondoockers Welcome stay! Our Hosts are some of the kindest, most giving people we have ever met! They welcomed us with open arms and even prepared a delicious dinner for us when we arrived. Their property is beautiful with plenty of room to turn into the driveway and turn around with our tow car. They offered us water, electric and even a place to dump! It was beyond our expectations. We have only been a part of the RV community for a short time but it is apparent that the people we meet are the best part of RVing.
I believe God puts people in our path for a reason and I am so grateful that these three beautiful people were put in our path. As we drove away I really felt like we were waving goodbye to our family!
Thank you again! My God continue to bless you each and every day!
We are almost tempted to write a less glowing recommendation so we can keep them to ourselves, but anything less than an outstanding review would be doing Ginny, Perry & Georgia an incredible disservice. Even prior to our arrival, we were greeted warmly and welcomed into their home. In addition to full hookups, our hosts gave us an experience to not soon forget. Ginny is the most impeccable hostess and excellent cook. Perry and Georgia are as funny and quick-witted as they are welcoming and great conversationalists.
The beautiful property and available amenities are great advantages, but the pleasure of their company is the real benefit to be had when staying at The Candy Cane Corral. We look forward to return visits with our new Texas family down the road. 💛
P.S. If offered, a cream puff, do not even think about turning it down.
What a pleasure to have stayed with this trio. They were courteous, friendly and funny. We were invited to a wonderful meal and a glimpse at the Christmas Village. Candy Cane Corral was easy to find, and amenities were just as advertised. Thanks, Perry, Ginny and Georgia for a wonderful stay.
We highly recommend this stop!! We will request to stay here again
Thru Boondockers Welcome, I expected to meet some very kind and generous Hosts. And I have. However what I never expected to find was a Host family that is so kind and fun that I am planning another trip, just so I could go back and stay with them again. Candy Cane Corral is that kind of people. They are just really nice and kind people that invited us into their home and could not have been more gracious. I look forward to a trip back to Texas so we can stay with them again.
No short title for these great folks. Beautiful property as well!
This was my first time using Boondockers, this experience could not have been a better one. The Candy Cane Corral is easy to find. Parking is easy for any size rig and the hosts make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. If you visit ask to see their miniature Christmas village. They have put a lot of time into this and it is beyond belief. I promise if you see it your jaw will drop.
Had a wonderful 3 day stay with this lovely family. From the glorious food to heartfelt laughter we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and really felt sorry that we had to leave. The spectacular Xmas village was something to behold and the result of many, many hours of patient work. Thanks so much to you all for making our stay a highlight of our road trip so far :) We will definitely make a bee-line to your door if we come anywhere close in the future ! Love & best wishes Phil & Jo
We’ve hosted some 30 boondockers this past year at our place and we always thought we were great hosts... that is until we actually stayed at the Candy Cane Cirral with Perry, Ginny and Georgia. Talk about a wonderful stay and they will be on top of the conversation every time. Super easy to get there and nestled back off the road, their place is wonderful. And they have full hookups should you need, even a dump station. We chatted over dinner for a good couple of hours and loved every minute. Now we’re planning on staying with them again on our trip back home. Thanks again Perry, Ginny & Georgia for such grand hospitality and a great dinner with new friends.
This was my second stay with Perry, Ginny, and Georgia after a one day break. Took a disastrous trip to Oklahoma resulting in my dog getting attacked, an all night drive to find emergency vet care, and getting covered in chigger bites. My dog and I needed a safe place to recover and regroup. I wasn't able to get an internet connection, but headed to Perry, Ginny, and Georgia's place because I knew they would allow me to park my RV without question. I was able to get a request to them in route and they were waiting for us in the driveway as we pulled in. Ginny even gave me a vile of homemade salve for my dog's wound and my chigger bites. They are truly caring and generous people.
I'm fairly new to the RV life and my visit to Candy Cane Coral was my second Boondockers Welcome stay. Perry, Ginny, and Georgia totally spoiled me and will be the standard that I will reference at all future Boondockers Welcome stays. They went above and beyond in respects. Their property is beautiful with plenty of space for multiple RVs. Lots of room available, far from traffic, for children and pets to play. During my stay, they had a large tree trimmed up allowing for RVs to do a pull-through. Perry, Ginny, and Georgia made me feel like part of their family. They even introduced me to the neighbors, who are also incredibly nice people. I did not want to leave.
I really didn't know what to expect but got much more than I ever imagined when I stayed at the Candy Cane Corral. An acquaintance had set up the original stay so I arrived not knowing much what to expect.
I found that they were exceptionally gracious, kind & loving hosts. I think I was smiling and/or laughing the entire time I was in their company.
They provided a safe place for me to meet with a new friend that I only knew online. They gave us as much privacy as we wanted but also willing to share their fellowship and meals with us.
I am new at driving an RV and they helped guide & encourage me as I parked. It was great that they shared tips and tricks about RV life too. I felt like a sponge soaking up their knowledge.
The location was beautiful with a lake nearby and they freely gave us information about sites to see that they thought we might enjoy.
The time and love they have put into their home and property shows, it was just a lovely and enjoyable stay. Their winter wonderland game room was an absolute delight to view with all the work they put into it. Just staying on their property alone was relaxing and beautiful in itself. My dog loved chasing the bunnies, squirrels and lightning bugs across their acreage.
They made me feel like I was family and I enjoyed them so much. It was much more than I ever anticipated. They were a breath of fresh air. The love there is genuine and pure.
Even their neighbors were friendly. It was so nice to feel so welcomed.
I hope to make Candy Cane Corral a stop every year when I head out this way to visit my biological family.

What a wonderful time we had. Best detour ever. We where treated like family. We would like to be adopted! Thank you Ginny, Perry and Momma.
All the reviews were almost too good to believe. We can now say that the stay exceeded even the best review.
Perry, Ginny & Georgia are true American Patriots. They are some of the most hospitable, gracious, caring and giving folks that we have met.
Their Boondocking facilities include 50 amp electric, water and even a dump station! We parked under a 100 year old + tree with lots of shade.
We were invited to dinner on arrival day and to a Mother's Day lunch on Sunday. Perry BBQ'd ribs that were super.
Our dog Stella does not want to leave. She had the run of the property.
Thank you, thank you for your hospitality.
Perry, Ginny and Georgia are the BEST ever hosts. They treated me like family and traveling alone it meant a lot especially after several days on the road with sometimes harrowing weather. Their site is complete and so beautiful with mockingbirds providing morning serenades. I threatened to move in with them all! These folks are special, we will meet again. Thank you.
We are so glad to have met Ginny, Perry, and Georgia too! We were welcomed warmly and enjoyed a delicious home-cooked meal around their table with other Boondockers Brad & Elaine. We hooked up to 50 amp service and parked under a HUGE oak tree. They invited us to stay for Easter Dinner the next day, but we needed to move on up the road. We really hope to meet them on the road someday or possibly when we are back in northeast TX and until them we wish them only the best and hope that they can get back on the road soon!
Ginny and Perry were more than kind and generous. They went out of their way for us and made dinner for us when we arrived. We got there late, so it was extra special that they waited on us. Their Aspen village is fantastic and the kids went nuts for it.
It felt like family to be with them.
Highly, highly recommend this stop on the journey!!! We will visit again!!!
Our stay at Candy Cane Corral with Ginny & Perry was absolutely exceptional!! They were fantastic host and immediately made us feel right at home. Upon parking our camper, we were welcomed to a delicious homemade meal which was a pleasure to share together. They were so sweet to our one year old daughter as well. She had a delightful time playing in their home! After spending the night with electric and water hook-ups, they generously invited us to join them for a nice hot breakfast. We all had a wonderful time, and wish we could have stayed longer! As we were getting ready to leave, they sent us off with a loaf of homemade banana bread and Tillamook cheese :) They truly went above and beyond in every way possible. We were both honored and privileged to be their guests!!!
Ginny and Perry greeted us with smiling faces and dinner ready on the table. We were so glad meet them and learn about them and their interests. They have a beautiful level lot that was very easy to park on with water and electric. We felt very welcome and will definitely be giving them a call anytime we make our way through in the future.
Imagine our surprise after pulling into our spacious, wooded campsite to be invited in for a wonderful dinner. It would be difficult to find more friendly and generous people. We enjoyed our overnight with Perry and Ginny and Ginny's mom immensely and plan to visit again.
I want to add to my first comment. We joined Boondockers and were unaware of what we were getting into. We arrived at Perry and Ginny's place and drove up the tree lined driveway to a beautiful flat place to park under a magnificent tree and hooked up to 50 amp service. We got a very warm welcome from Perry and soon met Ginny as we viewed the most amazing display of Christmas decorations we have even seen. In no time we felt that there was a very special connection. they are HOST and HOSTESS extraordinaire. The house is set about an acre off the road so there was no noise from the traffic and believe it or not there was no railroad trains near by, giving us the most wonderful nights sleep. I believe that they have surpassed all expectations 100 fold. So much so, that we want to go back. We are forever grateful to them for such wonderful hospitality.
We were wonderfully blessed to spend 5 amazing days with this family. Perry, Ginny and Georgia, have a very permanent place in our lives and we hope to get together again. Words cannot express how much they were there for us and there with us. It was our first Boondockers Welcome experience and we look forward to our next opportunity to meet more hosts. We had planned to stay 1 day...then 2 days...but because of the warm friendly welcome and the most wonderful time together, we did not want to leave. It felt like we were leaving family members. Perry, Ginny and Georgia are treasured friends for life.
Since this was my first boondocking experience I really didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. Perry & Ginny were the best hosts, friendly and welcoming. They prepared a wonderful meal and then we stayed up late sharing personal stories. I have never laughed so hard and so much. :-) I feel like I had known them forever. They were very accepting of my german shepherd, Katie. She fell in love with Ginny especially. I also met Ginny's mother the "young" 93 yo Georgia. She was so much fun and reminded me of my grandmother. I've got Georgia on my mind. :-p
If you like meeting new, friendly people, I highly recommend these hosts. They were the best. I absolutely contact them again when passing through the area.

Went to the dictionary and looked up "hospitality".
They had a picture of Ginny and Perry!
We reached out with short notice and were so lucky that they responded and we were able to stop. We've never felt more at home. They invited us over for a wonderful lunch and Ginny was nice enough to walk around with my 3 yr old and I. We saw baby bunnies, collected acorns, watched the fish swimming in the pond and enjoyed their magical winter wonderland set up. I'm sad we couldn't stay longer and join them for their famous rib dinner - maybe next time!!
We highly recommend these wonderful hosts! We had plenty of space to park our 40-foot 5th wheel on their property. Ginny and Perry are very welcoming and hospitable; they made us feel right at home. While we were there, we enjoyed good conversation, story telling, and laughs which turned strangers into good friends. If you are in the Texarkana area, be sure and stay with Ginny and Perry. I know we will do so again.
Perry and Ginny were the best hosts we have had with boondockers! They offered up a choice of three sites, one with full hookup. We stayed for three nights, and we feel they are some of the kindest folks on Gods earth. Best hosts ever!
We stop at Ginny and Perry's on 8/19. Turned out we were their first guests as well as it was our first night at BDW they have set a high Baer for hosts. We had a very enjoyable stay and would suggest to all members to visit them for a night or longer. Les and Jane
