Nice stay out in the country

We had a nice stay at this location. There is a large field in the back of the property but because of rain we didn't want to chance getting stuck maneuvering back there. We stayed on the gravel driveway next to an abandoned house, right alongside the road. Aside from road traffic, the location was quiet and private. We were also very close to the highway, Mt. Airy, Pilot Mountain, and Hanging Rock, all of which we visited during our stay. We never met the hosts but he was quick to call back when we had a couple questions.

Best BW location so far!

Absolutely LOVED this location!!! A step back in time with all the old country buildings. It was remote, but not too far from civilization, very peaceful and quiet. Our pups had plenty of room to run around and play. We drove out to The Tavern of Old Salem, the oldest business in Noth Carolina, for a couple of beers. We did spot a couple red wolves on the perimeter checking us out, but they never entered the field while we were out, as far as we could tell, and deer have definitely frequented this site. We'd love to come come back here!

Remote Dry Camping - Tabaccovillle, NC

Hosts were welcoming. They went out of their way to meet us and drive to the camping site. The parking area was
located in a partial field which was very remote. Definitely be fully prepared for a dry camping experience.

A wonderful stay!

This was our first stay using Boondockers Welcome and it was great! It was a very private location but not far from small shopping or from Wintston-Salem. We never met our hosts but they were quick to respond to our request. Thank you so much for giving us a great first experience with Boondockers Welcome!

Nice quiet piece of property with plenty of space. Our dogs enjoyed being able to play frisbee in the back field.

Rainy night in Tobaccoville, North Carolina

Great place near Winston-Salem.

Quiet private location near Winston Salem NC. We parked on edge of a field on the shade. Couldn't be better. Thanks!

Convenient and Private Location!

Our hosts were very communicative and friendly. We loved staying in their large yard so close to two amazing state parks. It was big, private, and quiet. We would highly recommend a stop here in Tobaccoville!

Super quiet stay

The hosts were away for the weekend, but their communications and directions were great.

We really enjoyed the stay. The field behind the house was solid and we had it to ourselves. Our Boxer Stella had a great field to run and chase her ball.

We will definitely request The Ridge if we get back to the area.
