Wonderful stay

The host was there to greet us and show us a few places we could setup. They had a very nice piece of land with large trees and a pond, but still east in and out. Thanks for the hospitality!

Very Relaxing!

LookoutAcres was a fantastic place to stop. The house and gardens were beautiful and the entire property was extremely quiet and relaxing. I saw many deer! The fenced in area was huge and my pup enjoyed the daily play. The family was friendly and welcoming and the location is very convenient to the highway, though you would never know. I hope to stay again!

Excellent hosts Beautiful place

It was so nice and the host and hostess so kind I decided to stay another night with the host's permission. The host was super kind - he gave me a piece of plastic so I could repair a rooftop issue and he told me how he'd do it. So helpful for this newbie! My furbabies enjoyed their romps in the big fenced in area the were allowed to visit. I would love to visit here again!

It’s crazy that this quiet farm feel setting is just a mile off the interstate. Could jot be more peaceful and the hosts are amazing. Be sure to ask Jerry about his garden :-)

What a great place to stay..

We just became Boondocker Host / Guest and this is all we hoped it would be. What a great first experience this was. We want to thank our host for a great evening and all the advise on how to be a great host and what to expect.

Wonderful Stay

Wonderful stay at Lookout Acres. Great hosts and beautiful property. Got my animal fix with the friendly dog and cat. Enjoyed the setting and was able to hook up to 30amp electricity for a small donation. Had great conversation with these warm-hearted hosts. Hope to return for a longer stay!

Enjoyable relaxing time.

We requested to stay for one day but ended up staying two. We have a 36 foot motorhome and the slope was a little much and we had to jack up the front quite a bit, but Our host was more than helpful in getting us set up. It seemed as though Lookout acres is a popular stop, and we understand why. They are close to amenities but far enough away that you don’t hear traffic, and has a nice little fishing pond.

Nice stay

Nice area with lots of space. The host was very kind. He helped us get hooked up to electric and offered us water. Close to town. We had 2-3 bars of Verizon and T-Mobile.

Great Hosts

We enjoyed our stay at Lookout Acres. There's a large grassy area where they said we could park. It had been raining a lot but it wasn't muddy and no standing water. We enjoyed our visit with J in the morning. Hope to be back someday!

Welcoming and quiet.

The puppy barks when you first arrive because she is excited. After a bit she quiets down and is very friendly. The host was very welcoming.

Wow What a great experience

Lookout Acres was our first Boondockers Welcome experience and it could not have been better. The host is amazing and the location and peaceful old farm is beautiful. We enjoyed meeting the host, he was very accommodating to us and was very prompt with his responses. We are very grateful for this experience and time we able to stay here. Close to many dining options and a great donut shop. But the real gem is the this beautiful property and patriotic host. We hope to stay here again in the future and visit them again.

Rural bliss right off I-20

Hosts were very quickly responsive and so welcoming, including letting my dog romp in their fenced paddock. Awoke to birdsong and spring in the air. Surprisingly rural property literally two turns off the Interstate (and Waffle House). They offered hookups but I did not need.

Quick Overnight

Friendly welcome, arrived after dark due some traffic along the way. Not far from the highway and near many amenities. Being able to hook up to water and electric was wonderful. We have a 39 ft rig with car dolly, we fit just fine but had to maneuver a bit to get out. Was a positive first experience with BW. Thanks Lookoutacres!!

Great host!

Our first Boondocks and it was great! We arrived late due to an accident on Interstate. Host was helpful in setting up in the dark and we had a cozy night! Kept our fifth wheel connected to truck and used our 50 ft cord/30 amp pigtail to connect to electric. Easy to disconnect and get back on the road! Thanks for a great experience!

Just needed on overnight stay on our way north. It's an easy access location, but not right next to traffic noise. I'm a pretty light sleeper, and I slept very well. Thank you for your hospitality!

What a fantastic location!

So close to everything yet you feel like your far away. Quiet spot with great hosts and an adorable daisy dog. My big dog loved playing and supervising the hosts as they did their yard work haha! I extended my stay and would absolutely stop here again!

Fabulous Oasis

Easy access from I-20 and while located close to shopping, restaurants and downtown Augusta it's truly peaceful. Added benny, even in December, leaves were just changing. Beautiful with plenty of room for our big rig to turn around. Easy 20 min drive to downtown Augusta. Went to the Riverwalk. It's in a business district. Got our steps in but went to the hill for dinner - Arsenal Taproom & Kitchen. Definitely recommend. Limited food menu but super yummy and well prepared. Darn, forgot to get some of the farm fresh eggs. Guess we'll have to stop on our way back. :-) Thanks for hosting us.

Doggie heaven!

A wonderful stay at Lookout Acres! So close and convenient to The HWY but it feels like a world away. We are in a large rig and it was an easy in and pull thru site. There was a large fenced in pasture for my dog to run and play. He was so happy!
Host was friendly and welcoming. Hopefully we will get the chance for a longer stay!

Convenient and Quiet

Located just off I-20, Lookoutacres makes for the perfect stop for a night. Our host provided both water and electricity for a small fee. Highly recommended.

Very positive

Welcoming host; we enjoyed our stay and appreciated the tips given as we are newbies at RVing which I think was obvious when we tried to park but it was very spacious. Definitely a great place to stay and hope to return when visiting family in the area again.

Nice hosts, friendly dog, nice property, a little uneaven

We enjoyed our stay here, and spent a great time talking with Jerry and Maxine. But proximity to electrical and water outlets was on a section of the yard that was uneven (our electrical cord is 30 feet), which resulted in our tongue not being able to go low enough. Since we were just staying for the single night, I was hoping not to have to disconnect the weight distribution bars, but had to do so to lower the tongue more. I ran out of room for more down-tongue due to contact with the earth, so the best we could get was 1/2 bubble, which was OK and safe inside for walking. I really hate to say anything negative about the site, because it was a really nice place, with warm welcoming hosts. We would certainly stay again!

Beautiful and Quiet Farm

Very helpful and nice hosts. Enjoyed sitting outside talking with other guests who also were on the property. Gave us some fresh veggies which were delicious! Enjoyed playing with their doggie, Daisy.

Lovely, peaceful family farm

We thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay at Lookout Acres. We plugged in at Jerry’s barn and after visiting with Jerry, we settled in for a peaceful night on the farm. Slept great and slipped away by 9 am. Would recommend Lookout Acres to anyone seeking a space to stay in the Augusta, Ga area. A five star stay!

Great Host! Great Location!

Lookout Acres was an amazing Boondockers Welcome experience! Upon arrival, our host came out to greet us and explained where we could park and connect to water and 20amp electricity, which is cleverly tied to a 30amp outlet, so no draw down concerns. When he saw me working on my RV's taillight, he came outside and offered assistance. The location is great! Close to everything, but feels like you are in the middle of the country! Good cell coverage (AT&T & Verizon confirmed) and easy access made for a great visit. If we're in the area again, we'll definitely try to stay at Lookout Acres!

Lovely place, beatiful friends, and the cutest pup!

Lookoutacres was a perfect place to stay. There is a large field and plenty of room: Close to town, yet very private and secluded. The hosts were truly kind and helpful. I was supposed to only stay one night, but arrived with a flat tire. Without hesitation they allowed me to stay 2 days and also offered a tour of the garden and lots of fresh veggies and berries too. Just a kind and generous couple! And their pup, Daisy, is such a sweetheart. I felt so at home and welcomed. Thank you so much... it was a gift to land in your lives for a couple days :-)

The Best Stay

We totally loved our stay at Lookoutacres. There is plenty of space and after a little time we got level. Hosts were fantastic, super friendly. Helped us find a place and let me borrow a 30 amp extension cord so I could reach the 20 amp/30amp receptacle plug in. It was hot when we arrived so we paid the $5 a day for hookups. Well worth it to have AC!!! First evening Lookoutacres shared some cucumbers and squash from their garden and it was delicious. Location is private and quiet. When we got ready to leave we were given a big bag of freshly picked blueberries for the road. Sooo Good. Highly recommend that if you are in the area and looking for a place to spend a night or three you contact Lookoutacres.

Perfect place all around!

Only a few minutes off of I-20, this perfect boondocking venue is only shadowed by the wonderful hospitality that welcomes you upon your arrival.

We had no problem maneuvering our 40’ rig into the area we were directed to. Grassy area that was not difficult to level out on. Country quiet night.

Our pups were welcomed into a great big fenced area they used to use for their free range chicks. Which made them super happy to be able to run free.

If you are in this area and looking for a place to stop, don’t pass this gem by!!

Nice quiet night in a mixed up world!

Very easy to find. Met by Mr lookout acres as we drove up, he showed us where to park. We talked a little about the virus pandemic and a little more small talk. Then we got setup. Very dark and quiet night. Very personable man super spot for boondocking . Good tv reception on antenna. Thank you for making this possible.

Spacious, Relaxed and a Playful Dog.

Lookout Acres allowed us plenty of room to position our Airstream and tow vehicle. The host (his wife was gone for the day) warmly welcomed us and was helpful in every way. His 10 month old dog and our 4 yr old dog 'roughhouse-played' on numerous occasions which was a true delight to behold - so much so that our canine was quite sad to leave behind a frolickingly fun friend the next morning.
We highly recommend this BW location, and will definitely come calling when we find ourselves in the Augusta, GA area again. Thank You. Thank You.

A Beautiful and Quiet Stay

Our hosts are wonderful and down to earth folks who have a great place to set up and stay a while. We were greeted promptly and encouraged to park our 37 foot monster where ever we felt most comfortable. We found a level spot and were provided with the necessary hookups for our stay. Their dog was very friendly and we think our dog enjoyed his stay just as much as we did, if not more. We felt comfortable letting our well minded dog out to run in the yard with their pup. They even suggested a fenced area for our dog, in the event that we needed one. They are good folk with a great piece of property and we think any guest would enjoy the peace and quiet of the area. We will surely be back to stay when we're through the area again. Great hosts, great value and a great experience, thank you, so much!

Friendly hosts, convenient location

We really enjoyed our stay at Lookoutacres. The location feels rural, yet it's only minutes to the big-city amenities. Even before we arrived, our hosts were very flexible, both with our change in arrival date and in allowing us to have some parts we needed shipped to their house in advance of our arrival. When we arrived, our host went out of his way to make sure we were settled, offering water, electricity and even quickly cutting a few boards for us to help level our rig. We have several brief but enjoyable chats with both of our hosts, and would look forward to staying here again.

Great stay on a beautiful farm!

We enjoyed our stay. There was more than enough room, easy to get to and get settled. We parked near the barn which was a very nice backdrop for our visit. We got to meet some fellow boondockers for a few of the day’s we were there. We enjoyed chatting with the host and playing with the puppy! The canals and hiking/biking trails are worth the trip! Thanks for a great stay.


Combi

Great place to stay and fruitcake too!

This is an oasis close to the small city of Augusta.
Very quiet, good hosts and less than 15 minutes to downtown attractions, the canal bike trails and even a mall!
We had a wonderful stay with "Lookout" and hope to get back when there's less rain to interrupt our sight seeing.
Don't miss their chocolate covered fruitcake morsels, wow!

Amazing Stay!

We had such a wonderful stay at Lookout Acres! It was very easy to find and right off the highway. They were wonderful hosts! The site they had us park was very easy to get in and out of! Our dogs also enjoyed the HUGE fenced in off leash area. It definitely set the bar high for other boondocker welcome sites. Oh and if you get the chance you must buy a fruitcake from them! We had never had a fruitcake and it was amazing!!! It also it’s how they support their travels. If we are ever in the area again we will definitely be back. Thank you!

Great convenient overnighter

Host was accommodating and fun to chat with for a bit before time to get some sleep.
I got there later than expected (about 5:45 pm) and was glad the boondocking spot was easy to get to and pretty flat. I didn’t even need to unhook or use leveling blocks.
