Southern hospitality

We were welcomed with open arms and camped next to the waterfall. The dogs and I loved the spot. The property is beautiful and close to highway 81. I hope to return one day and have more time to chat with our welcoming host.

Lovely stay

Had a great stop. The host and his dog couldn’t have been more pleasant and helpful. Loved the location.

Peaceful Overnight

Peaceful grassy site next to a rippling Creek. Our host helped get settled and even brought us some tomatoes from his garden.


September 2019

Great Waterfall and Creek!

We had a nice stay next to the creek. It was great!


August 2019

Second time

Our second stay at Creekside was a cool August evening listening to the water move while watching a great sunset.


August 2019

Oasis in the city.

The creek side spot with a picnic table and swing would fool you into thinking you are in the country. My host was very proactive to make sure I found it and that all was ok.

Great place to unwind and relax. I hope to get to stay there again. Easy to find and plenty of room to turnaround.


June 2019

Peaceful visit creekside

Had a very pleasant visit. The host, Sherman, was so very nice and accommodating. Gave us electricity and anything we needed. Beautiful surroundings and a swing next to the stream. Some chickens as well. Really enjoyed our time there. Thanks again Sherman for your hospitality!


June 2019

Wonderful Creekside stay

This was a peaceful location next to a beautiful creek. Our host made sure we got parked and were level and comfortable. Thank you for the hospitality. Hope to return when we travel this way again.


June 2019

Great location and very peaceful

Wow what a great location to relax with a small waterfall to sleep by. Sherman treated us first class and we had fun fun fun. We wish we had more time to spend with both. Hope to host them in the new future in Delaware!

Peaceful place to rest

What a wonderful spot. Sherman was there to guide us in during a thunderstorm! Beautiful spot! Enjoyed conversation with him and Jo later in the evening. We swapped stories and laughed like we were old friends. Hope to get together with them again.

Truly a beautiful location

This was just a lovely location to relax for a few days. The creek is just beautiful and the ducks, geese and beaver that came to visit were an added bonus.
A bit of road noise and a little bit of confidence is necessary to pull into the designated area by the creek, but extremely worth it!!!!
Would definitely stay here again!!


May 2019

Truly nice!

Sherman is such a good soul! I would not hesitate on returning and would love to do so in the summer to tube down the creek.
Thank you!


May 2019

Truly Peaceful

Thank you Sherman for such a lovely, peaceful place to spend the night. Your location is aptly named. Peaceful Waterfall is indeed what I experienced. I am truly grateful for your hospitality. Thank you for providing a safe, tranquil spot for a fellow traveler.

Great host!

Great spot on the river by a small waterfall right near town. Host is a great guy, fellow camper. Such a great spot we decided to stay 2 nights instead of 1. Thank you for the great stay on our journey.


December 2018

Beautiful view

I loved the spot next to the river. Host was very nice, the spot is on the grass and the drive way is a little tricky but not bad. I would definitely recommend.


November 2018


The question here is: which is more charming, the host or the location? Both are highly recommended.
Mr. H. was gracious to postpone our stay by a day due to a weather event on our end. He was also extremely helpful getting us in to his location, talking us in by phone from the end of his property. A very engaging fellow, we wish we had more time to visit with him.
The area he has boondockers stay in is a hidden, peaceful gem. Sunrise over the creek is not to be missed.


October 2018

Kind & caring

Host was out in the rain helping me get electricity hooked up, even though I said it could wait till the rain stopped. Very thoughtful hospitality oriented.
I hope to visit again.


October 2018

Charming river

We really appreciate this site near the river with waterfall. It was quiet and near Roanoke. Our host was generous and really friendly


October 2018

Peaceful rest

I have traveled several days and stopped here. It is so refreshing that I stayed 2 nights. Very generous and thoughtful host. I would love to come here again.


October 2018

Very Positive! Wish our stay could’ve been longer. Very friendly and accommodating host.

Will definitely go back!


October 2018


What a beautiful site: right on a little stream and so close to downtown Roanoke. Wonderful host, was very helpful and friendly.

Recommend only staying here when ground is dry and solid

I attempted to stay here in route to Shenandoah National Park. Unfortunately, a hurricane pushing up from the Gulf and never ending rain prevented my stay. Sherman typically brings RVs in on a dirt entrance into his back yard. It was much too wet for that, so we (Sherman and I) thought I could park in his driveway. Big mistake. Got my 30-foot RV and truck stuck in a very bad situation. Unable to turn around after an hour of trying, it was decided to realigned the rig and back out. Long story short, I did some cosmetic damage to my RV and destroyed my 5th wheel hitch with some extreme jacking angles. RVs pin box bent the hitch release to the point where I could no longer release the RV. Hitch could not be repaired.

I would not recommend staying here unless the ground is dry and solid with no rain in the forecast. Those with 5th wheel rigs, do not attempt entering Sherman's property using the driveway. It's too steep and your tailgate area may dig into the underside of the rig. Only use the dirt entrance on the left side of his house that he recommends in his writeup.

With all that being said, Sherman is a super friendly guy and his property is very nice. I felt so sorry for him. He stood out in the pouring down rain while directing my attempts at getting my rig turned around. I also trenched the poor guys yard.


October 2018

Beautiful location and great host

We only stayed over night but would love to have stayed longer. Sherman has himself a little slice of paradise. He directed us in and helped us get to a nice level spot with electricity then left us to enjoy his property. A walk down to the waterfall and creek was wonderful. There had been a shower before we got there and there was mist rising off the creek it was just perfect for our first experience being hosted with Boondockers welcome! Would love to stay again if we are ever back in the area.


October 2018

Nice stay

Peaceful waterfall is a nice spot. It had rained heavily for a few days leaving the prime spot next to the creek soggy. The host met us upon our late night arrival and helped us to a level spot on his property. He was very hospitable and friendly. We were there just a few hours of the night as we were heading up North and just passing through. Will definitely stop at this spot again if we are in the area.


September 2018

Sherman was a great host!

Beautiful piece of property. Unfortunately due to the amount of rain they’ve had we were not able to park next to the creek. However, Sherman accommodated us in another location. Very close to downtown. Thanks - if we’re in the area again we will definitely go back.


September 2018

Beautiful Spot

Creekside Va is exactly as the photos show. S. was an excellent host and was willing to help me with anything I needed. I suggest parking up on the higher areas further away from the picnic table if it's been raining a lot.


August 2018


I needed a nice place to sit & rest, this was perfect for my needs.
The babbling creek had a gentle flow w a short man-made waterfall at the left-rear of this property that supplied some white noise to overcome some of the nearby street noise.
I enjoyed watching the seasonal visitors of geese & ducks hop the falls & be playful.
Sherman the host was very hospitable including mowing the lawn before I arrived &
assisting me w his air compressor to refill a flat tire that I discovered when I arrived.
It was caused by a very slow leaking valve stem extension. It was easily repaired the next day by a local very nice Mobile Tire Repair Mechanic.
I would definitely return again & I do highly recommend this place.
Thank you Sherman, it was a pleasure!


August 2018

Convenient, Peaceful

Host was very nice and helpful. Immediately brought a 15 amp hookup to site. Dogs played together. Both waded in the stream. My first Boondockers Welcome stay. Great to have a secure, tranquil spot for a night en route. Highly recommended.


August 2018


i had a great night stay here! There is plenty of room to park and you can't beat the view right on the river.!
The host was very friendly and had I not had a schedule to keep I would have stayed another night.


July 2018

Marvelous experience

We had a wonderful stay. Our host was very generous. His property just by the water is incredible. We will come back for sure !


July 2018

Relaxing and friendly

Oh yeah!
This spot is so relaxing, and the people who live here are so friendly and kind that you're not gonna want to leave! I sure didn't! In fact I ended up staying an extra night.


July 2018

What a great spot!

Our family LOVED staying at CreeksideVa. The picture can't really capture this peaceful little spot. We woke to the sound of the waterfall and our boys spent the morning skipping stones on the creek. Sherman is a lovely host. We so appreciated his kindness and conversation. If you need a place to stay in Roanoke, this is a great one.

Not enough space for all the POSITIVES

Sherman is a most gracious host with a beautiful piece of property, located a few minutes from I-81.Our parking spot was on a half acre of mowed lawn next to a creek and waterfall (low head dam). An extension cord was left for our convenience. Sherman has a gift of hospitality and will be pleased to share a cup of coffee or 'leave you be.'

Pay attention to the directions to enter his property and you will have an superb experience.
