I'm looking to retire in a few short years and start the RV travel life. We became hosts to try and pay it forward by planting a few seeds of kindness. We also learn valuable information about RVing from boondockers about things we haven't experienced since we haven't started our RV life yet. In other words we don't want to learn things the hard way if we don't have to.

Above and beyond

We have had only good experiences with Boondockers Welcome and Robert & Denise were even more exceptional than most! They were friendly, accommodating, informative, inclusive, and allowed us to extend our stay a bit to wait for better weather. We had a wonderful experience "Under the Georgia Oaks" and highly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the Savannah area! Kim & Joe

Peaceful and Welcoming

True southern hospitality! What a welcoming couple that made us feel like we were family. Robert took time to blow off all of the leaves and even took down a couple of branches that he didn't want falling on us. Wish we could have visited a little more with them, maybe next time! A great stop over that's close to Savannah.

A Big Valentine's Thank You

We were tired, skoolie had just got in from work, we talked for 20 minutes 'til everybody had to go separate ways. We went to eat at a place skoolie told us about, worked out great. Came back and had a peaceful nights' rest. A little embarrassed that skoolie beat us out the next morning ! Thanks for the boondock and we hope to see you here (or there) again !

Great location and host!

We had a great time while staying with skoolie2018. We stayed three nights but didn't get a chance to meet Robert until our last night. He was super friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed getting to know him. Downtown Savannah was an easy 30 minute drive from their location. Thanks again Robert!

The location is good, within short travel distance to downtown Savannah. Robert is very friendly and open to sharing experiences and information. He made our stat very comfortable. It was a Great stop.on our voyage south, we will be sure to stop on our way back north and get some guitar playing in. Thanks again.

Great hosts

Denise and Robert were the best hosts ever, I wish I’d like to count them as new very good friends. I spent a week, the place is very nice Robert was very helpful since my arrival, he does excellent wood work especially lighthouses, you have to check those! He made a spice ruck for me, that was very nice. Denise cooked an excellent chilly the last night and they invited me over. I hope I will see them in the near future and cook something for them next time and play guitar together again. 5 Starts

Great hosts

I left this morning with the feeling of having 2 new very good friends. The place is very nice and both very good hosts. Robert was extremely helpful from the very beginning. Check his wood work especially the light houses, very good work!

Great host

What an interesting guy. He has so many interests. We had some great conversation, worked together on a project and even jammed for a while. Nice spacious area to park and so close to savannah, perhaps the most beautiful town I've been to.


November 2017

Great host and plenty of space, really quiet area !!!

The site is really wide and located in a quiet area. We have unfortunately missed our host but we get all the answers to our questions by email. Would recommend it with no hesitation. Thanks a lot for being our hosts !

Super Friendly - Peaceful stay

skookie2018 are very welcoming. He's a truly gifted woodworker and clearly has a generous heart. The property was rural and quiet which was a welcome change from our typical Cracker Barrel/Truck Stop excursions. Would absolutely stay again.


October 2017

Wonderful stay

Skoolie2018 were very welcoming. They were sure to suggest an area on their property to give us privacy and our own space, as well as encouraging us to “setup camp” for our stay. They were helpful in recommending events and places to go in Savannah. Location was perfect - thirty minutes easy ride to Savannah and less than an hour to Tybee Island. Their property was in a quiet and peaceful setting. We absolutely recommend a stay with them! Maureen & Seamus

Great hosts and location

Had a great stay with Robert and Denise. Super property for boondockers and an easy drive to Savannah, Hilton Head and Parris Island. If you are a woodworker you will appreciate his shop and talent. Getting ready to purchase their retirement RV.

Great host

This host was great. When we arrived, we were immediately adviced that we could place our Van anywhere we wanted. As soon as he arrived home he arranged a clean table for us, made a big fire pit and started the fire. Than told us to get as much wood as we wanted. We slept very well for 2 nights and when we left he showed more of his property and told us some nice stories and future plans for his acreage. We sure will come back again if we are nearby.
