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.

Quiet piece of heaven

Great place for peace and quiet. Loved our stay here. Would stay here again.

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

Didn't meet our hosts, didn't even get out of our van, but spent a great rainy afternoon/evening at The Ridge. Recommended if you're in the Winston-Salem area.

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!

Great place to unwind after several days of traveling. Great place to walk my dog. Very quite and peaceful.

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.
