We have been camping 38 years and RV'ing for 30 years. Seeing our beautiful country and making friends along the way is what brings us joy. With us living in Florida it allows us to be Sunbirds by heading north each spring for the summer.

We really enjoyed having this couple share our place for three days.
They are hosts themselves and know just how to be perfect guests.
We hope to be able to boondock at their site one day.
But meanwhile, they're welcome to stay here any time.
What a wonderful couple who loves living life! Safe travels!
Hosting LiVan is one of the main reasons we opened our property up to Boondockers welcome. They are such a friendly couple and we feel lucky to have met them! We got to share some great conversations during happy hour. They are welcome back here any time they are back in our area. Happy trails LiVan
We hosted Livan at our camp in the woods in upper Michigan. They were friendly and pleasant guests. They even invited me to their private Facebook page to view their photographs and hear about their travels as they made their way to and from our location! My only regret is that we didn't have a long enough time to get better acquainted. Safe travels folks! Welcome back any time!
We are happy that we met LiVan,they are very a nice couple and have a lot of information to share. We had some nice chats about traveling and RV life and hope to meet up with them again in Tampa for the RV Super Show.
Very welcome to stop by again if they are in the area.
This property is easy in and out, with two spots in the yard with access to water. The hosts were great and we enjoyed their company. It's a quite spot to boondock in a rural setting. The farm history is interesting and I loved hearing about it. Only ten-thirty minutes to several springs. We had a great stay.
Linda and Van were extremely warm welcoming and generous ...they were so much fun that they’ve encouraged us to become hosts!
We are thrilled with Boondocker’s welcome because of them... it was our first stay!
My second stay was as delightful as the first. I had a better opportunity to get to know LiVan over coffee. Will definitely stay again when the opportunity arises!
We had a great time chatting with Van and another couple. We shared lots of stories and laughs. The only thing missing was meeting Linda. We hope to get another chance next time we are passing through.
There land was big and flat with easy in and out.
I must start by saying, the response we received to our request was so enthusiastic that I was already anxious to meet our hosts. As we drove up, we were greeted and guided to our spot. Our host was very friendly, helpful and informative. It was a beautiful, peaceful spot to park for a couple of days. We enjoyed our evening happy hours with him and the
other campers there. Very, very pleasant stay! Thanks, LiVan!!
The old homestead is such a delightfully relaxing, quiet, inviting place. Hosts were welcoming and there's plenty of room. I couldn't get a decent Verizon signal, so left early in the morning without having much of a conversation, and next time I roll through, I will, as these are kind and lovely people.
We felt so welcomed. Thank you LiVan_Life for your wonderful hospitality. LynneandJoe
What a great couple. Thank you so very much. It was great visiting with both of our host and hoping our paths cross again soon.
Amazing hosts! Extremely accommodating to us in the unusually cold weather! Couldn’t be more pleased with our decision to stay here! Thank you, LiVan!
Great stay - loved visiting with the hosts and the other people who arrived during our stay. Would love to go back if we are in the area again.
We had a short visit but were able to meet our host’s who could not have been nicer. Would love to visit you again. Bob and Margaret
I was very satisfied with my stay and would return again if my situation rendered my being in that neck of the woods again. Van and Linda was so very nice, I give them AAAAAAAA+ Smile.
We had a pleasant stay at this site. We had a no hassle pull directly into their driveway with plenty of room to turn around. The site was so level, we didn’t need to unhitch, which made for a quick departure the next morning. In fact we were disappointed we couldn’t have spent more time with our hosts, but travel plans and social distancing made that too tricky. The water hook ups were clean and clear with plenty of pressure. All in all a great experience.
Thanks V&L for a wonderful stay. If you are looking for a lovely spot to park and good conversation, this is the place.
Thanks for hosting us again and not minding that we came the day before our requested stay date. Also, thanks for meeting us outside as we pulled in after midnight. You are a great host and we appreciate your ability to be there for we travelers during a time when state parks and COE parks are closing due to the virus. We'll stay again with you in the future on our return home to FL.
A very nice quiet place to stay with a very welcoming couple. Easy access, use their instructions as our Garmin 770 claimed ‘recreational vehicle accessibility unknown’ for their street. Marginal Verizon cell service.
Great spot with wonderful hosts. Great time talking with them. Great spot close to several springs to visit. Will definitely stay there again if we’re passing through this way again
Great host! Linda and Van made us feel right at home. Beautiful area with big sky at night. Bright moon and a sky full of bright stars. Love the area and the fellowship with a wonderful couple. Thank you both, until we meet again.
We booked this site last minute when another host who happened to be the sister of this one mentioned it. Our original plan was to stay at a nearby Walmart, but this was worth the drive a few minutes out. Super helpful couple and a very peaceful night!
We had a nice quiet evening and slept well after having the opportunity to see this couple again. It was nice getting to see this couple again and stay at their Old Homestead. We look forward to staying with them again in the future when we travel Westward in a few months.
This was our second stop at The Old Homestead. We felt very welcome at their beautiful property and had a wonderful night sleep
This was our very first boondocking experience. We spoke with our host through Boondockers Welcome and by phone. They sent us great directions, and when we arrived, made us feel very welcome. The Old Homestead property is beautiful. We were welcomed back on our way back home. Thank you for a great night's sleep.
This was our first BW experience, and we had a wonderful time. Nice people, great surroundings. Thanks So much
