Very nice place not far from downtown Jacksonville. Thank you
Very nice-- off the beaten path. Tour of his beautiful Pleasure Way camper. Great restaurant recommendation. We were out visiting and exploring a lot, but it was interesting talking to them when we were there.
A wonderful refuge in the environs of Jacksonville. Quiet and convenient. Our second time visiting. A very congenial host. Perfect boondocking location.
Could not have gone better. Easy to get in and out around circle driveway. Jack lead us to a very nice diner. And his wife gave me a book to read. Thanks for being such a good host.
Again it was wonderful to spend a couple of nights with these two hosts. A much needed rest after nearly three weeks of travelling. Thank you for a peaceful calm Oasis where we could drop anchor and just veg out.
I enjoyed talking travel with oldnavy and his wife and getting to know them a bit. They have a beautiful piece of property. I travel with a portable surge protector but before I even pulled mine out of the bin, he had plugged me in with his. 😀 They had told me they had an early appointment the morning I was leaving so I had thanked them the night before but he called me later to say they were sorry they missed me that morning! I would definitely visit with them again.
We were welcomed by Jack at the entrance to the property. He showed us where to park and where to hook up to the water and electricity. What a wonderful property. So serene and peaceful. Jack and Bobbie were perfect hosts and although we did not have a lot time to chat, we know we will be back to pick Jack's brain about RVs and their inner workings. A great spot to explore Jacksonville from as it is only about 15 minutes from the city center. Thank you so much.
We enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again. It is convenient and a restful place. Thank you.
Jack and Bobbie are so very welcoming. The perfect hosts. Helpful without being intrusive. This time we got to treat them to our homemade pizza while we sat sharing stories under the stars. We really hope you make it to see us in Nova Scotia one day soon. Until then continued good health and safe travels.

Super nice & gracious hosts! Jack is extremely interesting and has extensive RV knowledge. Provided water, 30 amp electric & level shady spot for a couple of nights. They even had a dump station! We look forward to seeing them again at our next stop. Turns out we were going to the same park!
Kim & Joe
Excellent hosts, Jack and Bobbie we're very easy-going and down to earth. Jack had some interesting insights. Our stay though short was really nice and we hope to see them again.
Scott and Leslie
This location is perfect and the hosts are absolutely inspiring
Very welcoming. Spent a wonderful evening learning sharing adventures. Hope to host them on day in Nova Scotia.
Wonderful and hospitable after a long drive! Many thanks! My Gps was unhelpful in bringing us in... Not sure if gps co ordinates would help other members.
We arrived to their home what a beautiful setup. Parked in a open area surrounded by trees, all hook ups right there at your convenience. We slept like baby's it was so quiet. Jack n Bobbie were extremely friendly and open their home to us to tell us about their past experience on RVing .. Bobbie and I had some wonderful discussions of our hobbies to show each other. Jack and my husband hit it off with Jack's collection of very interesting articles from his past adventures and career. His knowledge on RVs was a bonus for us also. Thanks Jack for the rake for the day! lol
Thank you for everything and really hope to reciprocate back to you someday with open arms.

We stayed 1 night in early April 2017. Our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. The site is down a flat sandy driveway and is an easy pull through spot covered with trees.
Electrical hookup was an pleasant surprise and we really appreciated having it.
We had heavy thunderstorms (2+ inches rain) during the night but the sandy soil made our departure that morning concern-free.
We greatly appreciate being able to stay here and would highly recommend this host to others.
We hope to host them some day in the future.
We stayed with these folks in 2014 and couldn't resist staying here again on our way through. Just as nice a location and these folks are terrific hosts. Not too obtrusive but very open and friendly. Too bad I had a cold and couldn't interact more. If you're ever up our way on your way to Canada please do us the honour of staying with us.
Stayed one night with oldnavy7. Great people great spot.easy access level ground.Great hosts.Enjoyed great conversation with Mr and Mrs. Hoping to see them at my place on their next trip.
Wow, we stayed a night in paradise, very quiet and private location so close to a City.
These guys have had a very interesting life, we spent time listening to the many adventures they shared with us. Mind you we told them a few stories of our travels both here and at home in Australia too. Very welcoming hosts indeed and thank you for your hospitality.
I stayed for 2 nights and felt very comfortable. They even invited me into their house and we exchanged stories. I would recommend them if you need a place to stay or even to say hello. Again thank you Oldnavy7.
We stayed a few nights over new years at oldnavy7's place. The weather was not too great but they were soo nice and have a great piece of property! We needed some downtime and it was very peaceful here. Jack and I had some great discussions about RV's, Ham radio and solar systems. He has some great stories and is very knowledgeable about RV's. I hope we can stop back here again in the future. Thanks Guys!
Jack and Bobbie were very accommodating, great space and location. Sorry we could only stay one night.
Jack and Bobbie were very accommodating on our trip south. They also helped us out on short notice when we had to leave early and return home due to RV issues.
Site is nice and quite and offers a safe haven after a long day on the road.
I cannot recommend a nicer couple. We thank you both very much!
After driving through a bad storm we arrived at the oldnavy7 location where James greeted us , at the head of the long drive way....
During our one night stay we discovered that James and I had much in common since we are both retired military guys....James and Bobby are great host and their place is a Boondockers parricide.... Thank You, James and Bobby and we hope to see you again (at your place or ours).
My fiancé, my cat, and I stayed with Jack and Bobbi for four days and it was fantastic! It being our first time boondocking, we were pretty nervous, but they were kind and Jack was very informative, offering invaluable advice to a couple of newbies like us. The property was gorgeous, quiet, and a little out of the way, but easy to get to. We would recommend anyone needing a place to dock in Jacksonville shoot them a message, they're more than worth it!
Jack and Bobbi were gracious hosts. We tow an Airstream and our overall length is about 50'. No problem here. This was a beautiful, quiet spot to spend the night Thank you Bobbi and Jack.
Stayed Dec. 27/13 and were VERY happy we did. These folks have almost a park like property once you get into it. Well shaded, level location with power on a paved pad. He moved his own RV to accommodate us. We were made very welcome and these folks are the type of people that are interesting (and interested) to talk to. He is well versed in all things RV so I'm sure could answer most questions or advise of local facilities. We would welcome a return visit from these folks anytime they are in our area.
Our experience was perfect. We had a quiet night parked in lovely natural surroundings and our hosts provided a warm welcome, lively conversation, and tips for our visit to St Augustine the next morning. Thank you so much. We look forward to return visits and reciprocating your hospitality in Ontario soon.
We had a wonderful time at your home. Thank you for having us boondock with you and the time we spent getting to know you better. Beautiful spot to park with plenty of room to park and enjoy nature. Peaceful green natural surounding, yet, so close to main loop around Jacksonville. We look forward to visiting with you again. Richard & Linda
