Recommend this family

We enjoyed hosting this family while they were in town for work. We would highly recommend them to any host. The kids enjoyed our yard and we're very well behaved. They are welcome back at any time.

Traveling Family

Nice family. They had to endure some of our worst heat and still were positive. Little ones were very curious and adventuresome.

Great Family

Great family trying to work during COVID. It is tough to find a camp ground here in MD. The kids had a great time playing in the yard. Would be happy to have them back any time.👍

Very user Friendly

This is my second reference because I messed up the first and thought it was a person I could not accommodate. The Travelinonashoestring family had great communication and were able to do everything on their own. I say that because our driveway can be a little difficult to level a vehicle in. They met our daughter and son and utilized our community. I wish were able to meet, but our interactions (text messages) were great and I felt confident they would have no issue.

Could not accommodate

Sorry about not being able to accommodate. The communication was good and I would have loved to meet them. It just did not work.


February 2020

Carefree Family

A little envious of this family. They are doing something I think all of us wish we had the chance or courage to do . They are a family RVing fulltime and seizing life in the moment. We enjoyed hosting this wonderful family! Children are our next generation and this Mom and Dad are trying very hard to teach their children to be respectful and productive while still enjoying all that life has to offer . This family is welcome back anytime!


May 2019

A nice family...

A fun, respectful (if somewhat rambunctious) family!
They enjoyed some of the many activities this area has to offer, from a great Friday night bluegrass group, to playing in a local park.
The would be welcomed back anytime.

They were great. The little one hugged me right away. Had the opportunity to show the little ones the animals. They are welcome back anytime.

welcome back anytime.

There are some folks to whom I would provide the new combo to the gate. Just because they travel w/ children is no reason to turn them away. Welcome back anytime.

Very Nice Family!

We had a reat time visiting with the Bowen family. They left the camping spot as they found it - CLEAN! They have 3 boys and I have to say their kids were an absolute pleasure! They were very well mannered and no trouble at all! These guys are more than welcome to stay with us again in the future.

Fabulous Family

We thoroughly enjoyed their visit! Great family with 3 boys. The youngest were busy, but mom and dad were great about making sure they were polite guests. We enjoyed visiting with the adults over cold drinks and coffee on the deck, and seeing the kids enjoy themselves. Our grandkids are becoming young adults and it was fun to have some young ones around! They are welcome in our driveway anytime.
