What great guests these folks that hail from BarnQuiltFarm are. This was their first stay as Boondockers Welcome guests, yet they rank as an Ultra Host. So, we were excited to meet them. Great fun people. We swapped Boondockers Welcome hosting stories, played cards, watched movies, and they even helped us with some minor chores. We are begging them to come back already. We felt as if we had known them for decades. They are welcome back anytime.
The drive up the main road to this wonderful farm was beautiful. The street was lined with great old oaks creating a canopy of branches and spanish moss (no problem with height for the rig), it felt like we were entering a secret garden. When you arrive, you are directed to a wide open field away from the main house, nice and flat, around a quaint pond. There was a fire ring from previous campers already set up which we parked right next to so we could enjoy a campfire. BarnQuiltFarm are two of the most friendly, gracious and welcoming hosts. The field is wide open and can accommodate several campers of any size. If you have solar, you'll enjoy the wide open space, if you want a little shade park closer to the front of the property and the trees will give you some shade through the day. We spent 3 days here and truly enjoyed every moment. A State park was very close by, where we went bike riding and did some photo taking. You can also bring your kayaks and kayak there. We can't say enough great things about this host and their wonderful place. We will definitely return.
We had an absolutely lovely stay at Emerald Oaks Farm! Bill and Deb were so friendly and gracious and their property is truly beautiful. We felt so welcome and at home here--made some new friends and relaxed in the quiet country setting. We would highly recommend a stay!
We had a great stay here and really enjoyed the environment. Bill and his wife were very very accommodating. Chances are great we will come back in the future.
We really enjoyed our stay at emerald oaks farm. Our hosts were very kind and we enjoyed the company of the other boondockers here! Thank you
We kind of wish we could have stayed longer! Gracious hosts and a lovely setting around a pond. Plenty of room for the four of us who were there together to have our own space and lots of acreage to explore with our off-leash pooch. We would definitely stay here again!
Wonderful, friendly and accommodating hosts. Beautiful farm. Plenty of space next to a pond. It is private, quiet and peaceful. Located close to 2 State Parks. There is a bike path not too far from their place which we took to go to Oleno State Park. Great stay!
We spent 2 nights at this wonderful spot. Plenty of space beside the trees and next to a pond, with lots of interesting birds. The hosts were great and gave us permission to stay there even though they were going to be away for the night. Only a few miles from Ichetucknee state park, a beautiful place to swim, tube or kayak. Would love to go back at some future date.
We loved our time on Emerald Oaks Farm. Bill and Deb were out of town so we never had the privilege of meeting in person. They were quick to respond to any questions and gave clear directions to their home. The land is beautiful and private. We set up near the pond and had no difficulty leveling. Our children and dog loved the freedom of space to run and play. We will definitely be back and hope to meet the hosts face to face to give them a proper thank you.
I did not get to meet these generous hosts as they were out of town. How nice for someone to allow you to stay at their beautiful farm.
Our stay was top notch! We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place to park! Our hosts were wonderful! We will see them again in the future!
The surroundings were beautiful and there was easy access in and out with our 42' 5th wheel. We were only sad we couldn't stay for the whole time. Our dehumidifier was greatly needed in this climate and it sucked the batteries dry from our solar panels.
Welcoming level place to relax. Quiet and dark enough to see the stars.
The hosts are friendly and welcoming and have a wonderful property for RVing. They're located in close proximity to both Ichetucknee Springs and Oleno State Parks.
Well be back for a multi night stay.
It's all been said before. Beautiful farm with lots of space, lots to see and do in a very photogenic area, and charming, warm, friendly hosts! We loved it here and a repeat visit at some point is highly likely!
Even the dog relaxed and looked so content here.
Hoping you come to Ontario some time so we can return the favor and host for you.
This place was great! Wide open and lots of space to park around the pond. If you are looking for a quiet and secluded place to relax, then I highly recommend this one.
Thank you so much for allowing us to stop back by on our way to Georgia. It was an encore performance from our last visit a couple of weeks ago. You guys are the best. Please come back to Georgia and let us host you guys sometime.
Although our hosts were away during most of our stay, their directions and other communications made everything perfectly clear. Their access road Is quite beautiful; we took several long walks. We camped by the pond, and happened to enjoy the lunar eclipse...excellent dark skies for sky viewing...and so quiet. This was our first Welcome Boondocker experience...Many thanks to our hosts! Hope to talk with you more during our next visit.
Nice host. We arrived a little late and he was very gracious showing us where to park.
A huge thank you to our hosts. Their directions were very clear and our camping spot was beautiful. There is nothing like sitting outside in the evening beside a pond listening to the bull frogs.
This location is really beautiful- peaceful land with a little lake. My dogs had plenty of room to run off-leash. Met other full-timers staying there- always fun to have a neighbor for a few days! :) The hosts came by to say hello, and showed me where the water and dump were located. Very nice people! Stop in here if you have a chance.
Our stay at Emerald Oaks Farm was enchanting from the moment we arrived until we departed. Our host warmly met us at the gate, directed us to our site and gave us the lay of the land. --- There is plenty of space to park and turn around. Everything is exactly as described. --- If you enjoy Square Dancing you will certainly want to stay here. We attended two dances and enjoyed meeting others in the community. Our hosts are incredibly warm people. It would be hard to describe our host in a few words. The previous comments speak volumes. We hope our travels will bring us through here again soon. Thank you for the fantastic stopover.
The Barn Quilt Farm is located in a gorgeous area with easy access to multiple water activities and springs.
We had such a fantastic stay at Emerald Oak Farms! The property is beautiful and our kids had so much fun running around, climbing trees and fishing for minnows in the pond! We had some trouble with our slide out as we were leaving and Bill was so quick to hop in the gator and offer assistance. We are so thankful for the hospitality and will definitely return!
Our first boondockers experience. We were even taken to a nite of square dancing. What a treat! Wonderful stay.
We did not end up actually being able to be in our rv durning our stay as we had a death in the family and had to fly out, however these hosts were so gracious letting us park there and even keep our rig there extra days. It was a beautiful quiet north Florida farm :) they had water and septic dump available and they even gave us some delicious apple home made muffins as a parting gift :) thank you guys so much for a wonderful stay, and we will definitely stop back and see you again!!
Lovely country setting with lots of space. We got in kinda late and our host were planning a trip in early morning so we didn't get to spend as much time together as we had hoped to. Will definitely try to catch this spot on another adventure though this area.
We stayed for 2 nights at the barnquiltfarm and could have stayed longer. Located on a field next to a pond at their farm it was so relaxing, the only sounds came from the frogs at night. We had two peacefull nights and would definetely go back there
William and Marsha were very generous in their invitation to camp for an evening in their nearby fields. We were near a pond and the quietness was very restful. We really enjoyed out stay.
This was our first boondocking stay. It was AWESOME! The location is so pretty and Bill and Deb were so friendly, kind and accommodating. It was perfect. Thank you so much again!
The perfect first boondockers welcome experience, thanks Bill & Debbie!
Our first BoondockersWelcome host location was just perfect! Easy access from the highway, a beautiful country location, and a big-rig friendly host. The Hosts have a peaceful farm with large trees dripping with Spanish Moss and Egrets hunting in the pond for breakfast.
It was raining pretty steadily when we arrived and all through the night, so we (reluctantly) had to run the generator rather than open up the windows.
Thank you so much for sharing your farm with us.
Gerard & Mari (& Sampson too!)
I was injured prior to our stay so we had a hurried stay and not much visiting. Would live to visit again as it is such a serene setting.
The hosts were amazing, it’s a beautiful farm and we set up camp right next to the pond in their large acreage. We have two young boys ages three and seven, we had fun exploring the woods and guessing about the ages of some old farming equipment that we found during our exploration. The public library is only seven minutes away, and we ate dinner at the great outdoors restaurant in High springs, very nearby as well. There’s a community playground about five minutes away, this is a great location. The hosts were phenomenal, the weather beautiful, great location. Sadly we could only stay one night. We will surely be back. Thank you so much. ❤️
Emerald Oaks Farm is a nice open, tree lined property with cordial hosts. They made our stay overnight quite pleasant.
The canopy lined, hard packed road to the property is another nice touch.
Thanks for the stay.
Beautiful prt. This was our first boondockers welcome stay. Hosts we're very responsive. Location was a perfect stopover off of 75. Don't let the dirt road scare you. We arrived in rain and the road is well packed and maintained. Easy to park our 45 foot toyhauler pulled by Ford 350 dually.
This was a great quiet location, making it much different than the tight parking lot camp sites.
Nice flat open area with deep well water and a dump station took care of what we needed since we have solar panels. The hosts are friendly and we would sure come back if they would have us.
We enjoyed our stay a second time. The pups were also so happy to return, you would have thought they owned the place. Our hosts were welcoming and so gracious to open their property to us again. Thank you!
We were only able to stay one night but hope to return at some point in the future. Wonderful place!
Beautiful rustic location, quiet and peaceful. Met the hosts briefly as they were heading out to a square dance. Very nice spots for boon docking, regret I'm only staying one night as I pass through.
We want to thank Bill & Deb for allowing us the chance to stay at the farm. It is a very special place. We had the chance to enjoy the most beautiful sunset in a very peaceful setting. The approach to the farm was a short country road with old oaks and lots of hanging moss. The farm it self allowed for plenty of room to make turn arounds and leave our toad attached. We would most definitely give their home a five star rating and recommend anyone looking for a safe haven for the night or nights to give them a shout. We will be back if our travels bring us this way again.

Emerald Oaks Farm Hosts were very welcoming and helpful while our small family enjoyed the local area. our kids loved learning about solar and sustainable practices to run a farm house. We greatly appreciated the easy access, convenient amenities, and traditional culture. We hope to visit again!

This is a very peaceful spot, so quiet and pretty. Exceptional hosts! They asked us to their square dance club. We were exhausted and passed on the invitation but we slept the whole night through and it was heaven. Thanks so much.
We had a fabulous stay at BarnQuiltFarm, our host was just great and invited us Square Dancing which we enjoyed along with another lovely boon docking couple from Nova Scotia, at the evening we where lucky to meet an accommodating friendly community. The site was large and we could pick where we wanted to park up. Great roads for running on too, quiet and hard packed sand.
Host met us at the gate, with a warm smile and a greeted our dog Sage with affection. He pointed out a few spots for us to set up to take advantage of our solar system. We were invited, along with another boondocking family staying here to attend his local Square Dance Club and had a blast. Unfortunately we were not able to meet Bill's wife, as she was away during our visit. Perhaps next time we travel through this area we will have the pleasure. Easy spot to access with our 32 foot Southwind and tow vehicle. Nice to have water and dump station those are always a bonus. Thank you again Bill. Maybe we can one day host you in Nova Scotia.
The hosts @ Emerald Oaks are down to earth friendly and their little patch of country is a relaxing location with easy access. Thank you, Emerald Oaks!
Enjoyed the country side and property!
Had good conversation and a bike ride with the host Debbie. Loved being in the countryside. The frogs by the pond were not bothersome to me, I'm a big nature fan, so... :)
Thanks very much for hosting me!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. We were greeted warmly at the gate and shown numerous locations we could choose to park. There was ample space to walk and exercise and let our puppy explore. We will definitely be back. Thank you both!
Our hosts welcomed us at the gate to their property even though it was after dark, and gave us several options for parking our rig. It's unfortunate that we only stayed one night, because they were so friendly, the area is quiet and pretty, with plenty of space for our kids to run and play.
BarnQuiltFarm was an amazing host! Making sure everything was good during our stay and told us of area sites to see while we were there as well. It is a dirt road, but very manageable and well worth the trip. He let us park where we needed to maximize our solar intake. They were wonderful with our kids and our dogs. It's a very peaceful property and we enjoyed listening to the frogs at night. A great host for sure! We can't wait to visit again!
We just arrived and we love already and plan to return some day. We can only spend one night but it is wonderful. The bullfrogs can be a tad noisy :). Loved it. Even got to visit with another boondocker family staying here at the same time. Thanks for opening your farmstead for others to enjoy. Tom and Joyce.
Such a welcoming place. A huge field to choose from. Friendly hosts, we almost went square dancing! Thank you so much for your hospitality.
This was our first time with Boondockers welcome and we were BarnQuitFarms's first guest! We were greeted by the owner who showed us around the property, and recommended different spots to park. He was very nice and made us feel very welcomed. We were able to see horses and cows just walking down the street, which the kids loved. His wife was just a peach with the kids. This is place is very relaxing and will definitely be coming back! Im glad our first experience was with this lovely couple and am very grateful for their hospitality.
The BarnQuiltFarm location is easy to find and accessible for any size unit. Plenty of area to maneuver. We where only spending the night and our host had a early morning departure so we didn't get to spend much time together, but we are looking forward to be able to visit again.
