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.

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!

Perfect hosts

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

Great Lively Conversation!

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 Stay!!!

A+ all the way! Everything we could expect and then some. Perfect spot for our camper van. The scenery was beautiful, and so private. We appreciate our host being so kind and hospitable.
Loved their dog, Hershey. Loved waking up to the crow of the rooster. Thank you so much:)

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.
