Delightful couple

It was our absolute pleasure hosting UF fans the CampingGator. They could not have been more friendly and considerate . Hershey their senior chocolate lab was a perfect guest . It's always nice hosting a fellow BDW host and seeing them relax and enjoy the river view. Kevin and Sheryl enjoyed the rails to trails bike path, Kevin played a local game of golf in Chiefland while Sheryl relaxed by the river working on a project of hers. We enjoyed a campfire with other Boondockerswelcome guest while sharing Thanksgiving deserts . We would certainly welcome them back.

A little slice of heaven

Our recent stay at Heaven Hill was a short, scenic ride off I 10. Our host met us and guided us into our spot. Our hosts were friendly & gracious. We enjoyed chatting with them and sharing our RV experiences. If we are ever passing thru again we would love to stay in this beautiful & serene spot.

Beautiful Peaceful Location

This was my first boon docking experience and it was a great way to start off. We were greeted by our gracious hosts who kindly helped us settle in to our spot for the night. The location is beautiful...surrounded by tall pine trees. Our hosts made us feel so welcomed and comfortable. Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven.

Another great visit!

Another great visit! This was our second visit to this location and it was just as great as the first. Getting into the site was very easy and the hook ups were made available close to our trailer. Our hostess came out to greet us and we spent some time chatting about life in general. We highly recommend this host.

100 times better than an RV park!

Followed owner's easy directions to the second house down the long drive. (Not GPS) Unhooked the Jeep and backed our 37' motor home onto the cement pad in front of the garage. (Turning was a little tight but sufficient room.) Level clean spot convenient to electric and water. Our dog was thrilled to play FRISBEE in the yard and I enjoyed cool early morning runs through the safe high end neighborhood. Short drive to Micanopy and Gainesville for entertainment. Beautiful tranquil property--definitely a little slice of Heaven! Thanks for hosting us. Hope to visit again next year.

Little piece of Heaven

Hospitality at Heaven Hill was exceptional! The spot was perfectly level and surrounded by tall conifers. The hosts were especially friendly and generous. We harvested veggies for dinner from their beautiful garden. Only stayed one night and would definitely come back when traveling through again.

Beautiful country paradise

If you enjoy a beautiful, quiet country spot with plenty of tall pine trees surrounding you, than this is
the perfect zen place for your boondocking experience. Located near a cute little town in North Florida,
we had plenty of hiking trails nearby and quaint shops. The owners were out of town, and were
gracious enough to let us stay on their property. Would love to come back soon!

Great stay!

Beautiful location for a night or two stay! We had 30 amp and water, good AT&T signal. The hosts were very sweet and nice to chat with, I wish we could of spent more time with them! Backing into the driveway could be tight if you are inexperienced so be careful. We would stay here again!

Peaceful Visit

We spent 3 nights at Heavenly Hill in our 35-feet fifth wheel. Camping Gators were very nice and helpful and were there for our first night. We were hooked up to 30-amp
electricity but did not need the water available. Our spot for the RV was flat, so there was no difficulty in setting up. We spent time on the porch, which overlooked acres of beautiful, peaceful hills. The roads getting to and into the area were good. We were fairly close to Micanopy. We enjoyed our stay and recommend Heavenly Hills to others.

Quiet countryside!

Thank you again! I slept really well and enjoyed the roosters! I normally do not want help in backing but you made it so simple for me. I hope you have a fantastic upcoming trip and hope to see you again!

Nice visit

We stayed 2 nights and really enjoyed it. From the rooster and his hens to the warbler to the visit on the back deck... Nice bike trail close by. And don't forget to visit the town of Micanopy, where Doc Hollywood was filmed. More new friends!

Livin sweet in piney woods

Very gracious hosts. CampingGator were delightful and willing to share the wonderful stories of their experience building the cabin, creating the gardens and making their home a haven for Boondockers. We will definitely revisit. Many thanks from Trucker 105 and wife Vic.

Gracious Hosts

Our one night stay was our first ever as a Boondocker guest, so we weren’t sure what to expect. It turned out to be a lovely experience with very accommodating and gracious hosts. We left with a very positive experience and would love to stay again in our future travels.

Great stopover

The Camping Gators are a friendly couple who have a great spot to overnight. They were both very helpful to share insights about the area. We planned to stay one night, but they were gracious to allow us to extend for the second night. We enjoyed meeting them and based on their recommendation explored a wonderful bike ride into Gainesville along an old rail trail. We invited them to look us up when they travel to NC. We very much enjoyed our stay.

Heaven Hill

Beautiful property, peaceful and relaxing. Our hosts were even better. They are very welcoming and made us feel at home. We learned the art of using a Woof'Em Stick while sitting around a campfire, there was not a PowerPoint Presentation. Our goal is to master the art of Woof'Eming prior to our next visit. We very much look forward to visiting again.

Exceptional Hosts!!!

Heaven Hill is such a beautiful property complete with a perfectly level concrete pad. We were provided and appreciated the 30 amp and water hookups. The best part were our hosts, who were warm, friendly and helpful. We're so fortunate to have gotten to know them during our 2-night stay and look forward to staying again the next time we are in the area.

Enjoyed the hospitality

We really enjoyed our two days with CampingGator on Heaven Hill. We followed their directions in and had no issues or concerns with turns or low branches. Very easy to get to off of the highway. We have a 40' 5er and backed down the driveway. I did have some problems making the blind side turn as you near the house, but there is ample space and I just had to give it a couple (ok, maybe a few) tries to get it right. Try not to do that in the dark if you have a bigger rig! It rained like crazy the night before we left and I was glad to see we didn't leave evidence of our stay in the form of ruts or even tracks.
While in the area we enjoyed walking around Micanopy, and streamed Doc Hollywood (1991) that evening as part of it was filmed there. (good cell service). We also made use of the tennis court at Flemington Community Park and the kids enjoyed the playground there. Thanks so much for having us and hope to see you down the road!

Great experience

Wonderful host, CampingGator made us feel welcome and were extremely helpful for our one night stay.
The property is spacious and beautiful in a quiet country area. We were able to visit with them and share RV and camping stories on the back porch at sunset.
Again thank you for a great stay.

Wonderful Host

Wow I don’t even know how to start.
Most likely the friendliest and down to earth loving people you would ever meet.
They have a beautiful home over looking acres of real Heaven. They are very busy people who try to accommodate all travelers using a 10 star model. We hope they will pay us a visit soon. We miss them already.

Heaven Hill is a beautiful location. The hosts are wonderful, welcoming people. We enjoyed a few moments of sharing adventures. Did not get to spend much time with them as they are working. The parking is easy and level. We will be back as we come to the Gainesville area often.

This spot is easy access of the highway in a safe, quiet neighborhood. Slight highway road noise but nothing to keep you up. A lovely couple willing to share their stunning property! We would happily recommend!

Truly Heaven!

This place was absolutely amazing. Their property is expansive and they even had swings and a tree house for the kids! They were so welcoming even letting us hang out on their back porch. We have a 40ft 5er and had no trouble fitting, just back down the drive and you will be fine. The only hard part was having to leave as we felt so at home there!

Beautiful Home

A wonderful couple hosted us for our last night on the road from our California trip. They were very gracious and we enjoyed chatting with them about our respective travels and plans post Covid-19. We parked on a cement pad perfectly level and appreciated Kevin’s offer to use his 30 amp connection. Will definitely return to see them next time we are in Florida Gator county.

Great Visit!

We stayed at Heaven Hill for three nights. We rode bike trails for two days and just relaxed and enjoyed the area nearby the other day. It was amazing to visit with CampingGator and see how much they had done to their wonderful home and hear about some of their hobbies.

Since we visited during the middle of the week, we didn’t get to visit with them very much as they were at work during the day. We really enjoyed our time spent at Heaven Hill!

Thank you for hosting!

Very nice place nestled in a stand of mature pine trees. Nice and quiet. Had a chance to sit and talk with our hosts the one evening that we stayed which was both easy and a pleasant. Would love to stay there again.

Super Host!

this host was so accommodating to our needs and our very large 5th wheel. We were welcomed so warmly and felt at home the moment we got there. Visiting with the hosts and touring their beautiful home was a bonus. Thank you for such an enjoyable stay!

Absolutely awesome experience!

Heaven Hill is a truly amazing place! Such hospitable hosts with the most awesome property imaginable. What a fantastic house they have built here! We were amazed that they had built the house themselves and we had so many questions about how that happened. Their property is a slice of heaven so they certainly chose an appropriate name. The views from the house are just beautiful. They justifiably take tremendous pride in their property and their role as hosts. If you have an opportunity to stay here, do not pass it up.

Is this heaven? No it's Florida.

Beautiful spot in rural Florida. Concrete pad with 30amp electric and water in front of a charming log home nestled among the trees. Hosts we're extremely accommodating despite our breakdown and subsequent late arrival.

Kindred Spirits

They are one of the coolest couples ever and an adorable little homestead. We found in them a kindred spirit, so much stuff in common. From his wood working and construction skills to her quilting and stain glass art work...We wish we had more time to absorb more of their endless knowledge. We give them 2 thumbs up for being awesome.

We have a big and heavy rig and were a little concerned about fitting, but the ground was hard and dry. We decided it was best for us to back down their long driveway. Only suggestion if you are a big rig, is to make it there during day light hours. The long row of pine trees along the drive way make it a little darker quicker. Ask us how we know! :)

Amazing Hosts!

This is our first trip on our new RV. We arrived later than expected due to traffic and it was dark. Kevin and Sheryl are a beacon of light! So patient while my husband took several times to back up close to the spot where they so graciously offered electric connection. They are amazing, so kind and warm!
We r so blessed that in our first boondocker experience we came here!
Thanks Kevin & Sheryl! We hope to be able to repay your kindness if you are ever in Miami!

Stunning location and wonderful hosts!

We were greated by our friendly hosts when we pulled in. It was super easy to back into the spot. We were very appreciative to use the 30amp electric and water. They have a petro right down the road 10 mins that was super convenient for gas and to dump. We really enjoyed talking to Camping Gator. They gave us great suggestions on places to go and things to see and even treated us to smores and a campfire. The location is absolutely beautiful with tall pines and green rolling hills. They were so kind to even clean out an old kids tree house for our kids to play in. We really appreciate them letting us stay🙏 God bless

What a fantastic couple + 1 (Hershey the dog was also a great host) We really enjoyed meeting these folks and look forward to next time! Sharing a dinner was an unexpected treat -- and it was really nice to meet another couple with so many things in common. They also gave us some great tips for things to do at our destination. Definitely another great stay with BW folks!

Fantastic host

From the moment she confirmed our visit, our hostess went out of her way to help us and make our first BW visit a success. Her location is beautiful, back in the woods with a panoramic view into a wood-ringed meadow. Sitting on the wide back porch and having her friendly dog, amble over for a scratch was a great way to end the day. We can’t thank our host enough for her hospitality and willingness to “loan” us her piece of Heavens Hill.

Quiet and peaceful.

We had a tranquil night's sleep. Our hosts were friendly and accommodating. We deeply enjoyed all the conversation and hanging out. What a beautiful house they made. Too bad our time was too short as were were just one night and got back on the road the next morning. Hope to stay again.
Power (30A) and water were good and conveniently located at the corner of the garage. Driveway was perfectly level. The turn-around, to park our 32ft 5th-wheel on the driveway, took some maneuvering and patients.. but we were able to do it safely.

Appropriately named!

Heaven Hill was exactly that... a little slice of heaven in north central Florida. The property was breathtaking and Mr and Mrs CampingGator were incredible hosts! Thank you for the hospitality and generosity.

We explored some of the nearby attractions that Mrs CampingGator highlighted on a welcome packet she made and we were even able to attend a local rodeo. Way cool.

Couldn’t recommend this experience more. Thank you again.
