My wife and I are in our forties and have 4 children and one dog. We camp several weekends throughout the season and like to keep our travel legs short due to the kids.

It was our pleasure to meet and host this lovely family. Hats off to mom and dad for teaching lifelong values that will help their children success in society! Would certainly host this family again!
I checked in at the Nothing Special homestead on Friday afternoon. They offered a friendly greeting and asked what I needed (water, electric). I only needed 15/20 amp electric but they have 50amp if needed. Nice flat driveway, very quiet neighborhood. Unfortunately, Covid prevented us from socializing. All in all, much more than Nothing Special. A safe and friendly overnight haven, just what every weary traveler welcomes.
The Tigburns were awesome hosts, we had full power and were offered water as well. He met us in the driveway and washed all the bugs off our windshield 😁. Great place, quiet and dog friendly. Thanks!!
Wonderful evening. As others have commented, the parking spot in their drive is relatively flat, has 50 amp electrical service available along with water and a sewer connection. They are located in a beautiful neighborhood with large lots and plenty of room to walk pets and just relax. Slide out use is allowed, we were requested not to "camp" with grills, lawn chairs, etc. being set up. This was perfectly fine for an evening stop as we were simply traveling from one campground to the next. We move every 1-2 weeks as we full-time travel about this wonderful and beautiful country.
A wonderful place to stay the night.
Almost dead level concrete driveway, plenty of power and water if needed.
tigburns are welcoming hosts, fun to share stories and local knowledge with.
Very quiet at night and the neighborhood is a great place to walk off your dinner.
We certainly hope they can visit us in the future.
Very nice place to stay. Level driveway in a nice area. Not far from Harper's ferry which is a great place to visit, lots of history and hiking paths. Thanks for your hospitality!
We enjoyed our stay, we had a very quiet peaceful evening and our host was so accommodating! Would definitely return!
Greeted by our Hosts and showed a place to park in their driveway. So great to find a level concrete site with all the utilities, it makes for a quick set-up on our short stay. Our conversations were brief, thanks to Covid, but we got what we needed and felt very comfortable. Got to meet on of their young boys and he showed me how fast he could run, it was fun! Got to walk our dog Jake in a great neighborhood setting and to enjoy the nice peaceful quiet night.
Thanks for being “Very Special”. We Highly Recommend and hope to come back some day when we can just sit and share stories and RV experiences.
Very comfortable stop with real people. Hosts like this make the overall Boondockers journey a special experience.
We had a stay. Beautiful neighborhood that was very quiet. Our host were wonderful.
Thank you for your hospitality!!!
My 2nd-ever Boondockers Welcome stay was easy, lovely, quiet, and a great retreat after a long, stressful journey. Norhing Special? Incorrect. More like VERY SPECIAL! Loved the scenery, very friendly and helpful hosts. Long walks in evening and morning were just what was needed to break up a long distance trek that would otherwise be stressful and bleak. Beautiful area. Highly recommend. Thanks for something special!
Great place to stop and spend the night. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. It’s a beautiful neighborhood, and we would love to come back and visit one day.
The host was friendly and very accommodating. Nice, level parking spot on his driveway. Beautiful neighborhood that's close to downtown and the highway for easy access. Close to Harpers Ferry, which was a fun stop. Would definitely recommend. Thank you!
I stopped for just one night but was warmly welcomed to an easy-to-access space with power (and water, if I needed). The host family could not have been nicer.
Very nice and quit place. Host very friendly and accommodating.
Our hosts were very nice and accommodating. The neighborhood was beautiful.
Very Accommodating! Nice family. Beautiful area! Wish we could’ve stayed longer.
The concrete level driveway and shore power in a beautiful setting was perfect and we did not need to unhook the travel trailer.
Such a friendly kind family...hope someday we can host them.
The kids introduced me to Cotton-Eyed Joe Texas Dance music and I was treated to an lively swinging dance performance.
Nothing but positives at this location. Ample parking and easy power hookup. The children were delightful to play with and gave our dog plenty of attention. Huge fenced in area where our dog could run to her content and did she ever. Host were attentive to any of our needs which were few as they had everything. Great family to get to know.
After our hosts made sure we were settled in we took a walk around their picturesque neighborhood with large lots.
Would stay again if passing their way.
The site was level and concrete! We were also provided power. The host also allowed our dogs to run in his enclosed back yard after introducing them to the rest of the family. We had great conversation about RVing. The area is quite and easily accessible.
This is a wonderful spot with a level driveway and electricity which we desperately needed due to the warm weather. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly. We really enjoyed staying here and hope that we can again sometime in the future.
We enjoyed our stay here! The driveway was very long and level and the connections to the water and electric were close by. They were very accommodating to our crazy travel schedule and we are so thankful for this comfortable place we could spend the weekend after a busy week of travel. Grocery stores and scenic parks all near the location. Calm quiet area and nice neighborhood. Can’t say enough good things about our stay here!
Our hosts were very accommodating. Their driveway was level and the space more than adequate. We didn't get a chance to converse much, as we arrived while they were out, but they welcomed us back anytime, and we would certainly stop if we were in the area. Thanks!
Short but sweet stay, nice quiet neighborhood. Friendly host. Would stay again if in the area. Thank you.
We stayed at Nothing Special twice on our journey to Florida to visit my brother.
Both times we felt welcome there.
We got to meet the hosts and their children this time and had fun with them.
We made new friends and look forward to seeing them again.
Tigburns hosted us on very short notice when our other host canceled on us due to unforeseen circumstances. Thank you for a much needed nights sleep!!!

This family was great. Level spot that we were able to stay hitched. The neighborhood was beautiful and so quiet you can hear a pin drop. Shore power and water was a plus. Would definitely reccomend.
