Great hosts - beautiful area!

Our host met us as we backed in his driveway, and gave direction and assistance with where he wanted our rig. They are a lovely couple and we talked until after dark. They have many more years of experience RV'ing than I do and I greatly appreciate him sharing his wisdom with us.

Great stay near Crystal River!

Thank you so much for the hospitality! We very much enjoyed our stay and learned so much about Florida and cars/RVs during the stay. Newly “full timers” (at least for the summer)… we absorbed it all! Highly recommend and very much appreciate this lovely couple.

The spot is level and very clean, and the hosts are wonderful and friendly. Lovely area near lots of amenities. A special hi to Shadow the doggie, who is completely adorable. Thanks so much.

This host couple was a very welcoming and I greatly appreciated it. this was my first day with boondockers welcome and it was a great one to start with. The host even offered to replace the plug on my electric cord went into town to the hardware store and unfortunately was not able to complete it because the store was closed. This was way above and beyond and I greatly appreciated the stay in this beautiful neighborhood.

Nice hosta

Good company!

We had a relaxing stay on their secluded property. Despite being in the process of prepping for travel themselves, they graciously invited us to stay longer if needed due to all the Covid19 closures going on. They were a wealth of knowledge about the local area, and being RVers themselves, were able to advise us on places and routes along our intended path. We had very pleasant conversations that ranged far and wide in topic. They renewed my faith that folks are generally good hearted, and that you can find friends even if you don’t all agree on everything. I would recommend their hospitality highly to anyone passing this way!

Super Host

In our year and a half of fulltime, this is definetely on the top three best overall boondockers experience. The hosts were great. Welcomed us and helped us back in. Their dog was super friendly with the kids. The area was perfect for manatee seeing even though we missed them by a week or two:(. Will return if in the area. Thanks for the campfire!


March 2020

Great location!!!

These were great people with an awesome yard. It felt safe and private. Our kids had lots of room to play and even got a ride in their golf cart, which they LOVED. Thanks so much to this generous couple and we would definitely stay again.


March 2020

Friendly, spacious

We loved our stay and feel grateful to have stayed here a few nights.
The hosts are very welcoming, we loved hearing some stories about their past and things to do locally.
Our dogs got along great and had a nice time running in the back yard.
Thank you so much!
Hope we cross paths again some day.

Best Host Ever!

This was our 1st Boondockers Welcome stay, I cannot imagine anyone better to help us feel more welcomed and secure than they did! I feel we made friends for life! Only thing we would have done differently, was to be more rested when we went, so we could have spent more precious time with these wonderful people! I would recommend them to anyone! One day soon we too hope to host people on BW, and I’m hoping they will come our way and let us host them, cannot say enough good things about our stay, or them personally, but thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Excellent 2 Night Stay

Spent two comfortable nights at this lovely home and had a great visit with the hosts and their sweet dog! We were very grateful to be able to hook up to power, get some water and WiFi. Spent a lovely evening by their campfire and learned a lot about Florida, Crystal Springs and these very warm and friendly hosts. We really hope to stop in again sometime. Thanks for the great BW experience!

Another Great Boodocking experience

Centrally located to many great things to do in the area. Our 5ver is 44 feet long and we were able to access the area with no problems and our host helped us get parked, which was pretty easy. Our hosts were wonderful people with a diverse and interesting backgrounds and a broad knowledge of the area and we enjoyed dinner and many conversations. We arrived as guests, left as friends and we plan on seeing them again.
