Wonderful Couple

We very much enjoyed hosting this couple and fellow boon docker welcome host. They were in our area to visit their daughter and celebrate her birthday on their travels north. They have traveled across the country multiple times and would love to be able to pick their experiences more if our travels meet again.


May 2020

Great stay!

Awesome stay! We would definately stay again and recommend for those traveling through the area.


March 2021

Great folks

The ‘Doverguy’ and his wife are wonderful hosts. This was our second visit and they both welcomed us back with fresh strawberries and good conversation. They are helpful with giving local recommendations of places to visit. Today we returned to Ybor City in the historic area of Tampa for lunch at the Columbia restaurant. Tampa region seems to be exploding with new growth, but these folks really make you feel welcome like a small town! Their full hookup overnight spots are also much appreciated. We hope they will sometime visit us in NC.


March 2021

Very welcoming couple

We had the opportunity to speak with Dick and to meet and visit with Pat. They are both so Ernest and welcoming. We enjoyed our conversation and the openness with which Pat greeted us. It is absolutely an rv’ers Dream place to stay. Beautiful large lot with trees and accommodations. I am just looking forward to the day when we migh repay Dick and Pat for their hospitality and kindness. Hope you can come to visit us also. The strawberry festival was so nice and I am such a strawberry fan the places you sent us were terrific. Thank you.


March 2021

Strawberries everywhere

Great site close to I4. Water, electric and dump Available. Wasn't able to meet Dick, but his wife was an awesome hostess. Strawberry festival was going on and she told us about an place for the best strawberry shortcake. Thank you!


February 2021

Warmth & Sunshine - That's Just the Host

What a beautiful set up. Dick had and answer for every need. Would love to revisit. Hope some one cancels. Lol


February 2021

Awesome host!

Dick and Pat are very accommodating hosts. Dick went out of his way to make sure we knew where to go to get everything we needed plus several suggestions for things to do and see in the area. They have an absolutely perfect setup for boondocking with full hookups for at one of their sites. We highly recommend you try to stay here with them at some point.


February 2021


Excellent Boondock Experience . We were running late due to heavy rains and Our Host had our parking spot marked for us and waiting for us with car headlights to assist our set up. We appreciated that so much .
We visited some the next day and got to share some RVing stories . Hope to be back next year.


January 2021

best bonfire ever!

This former orange grove was a very quiet and convenient spot. There were a couple of us rvs there and we had a great big bonfire one night. It was so relaxing, a super nice get away. Great host!


January 2021

Great people! Great sites! Wonderful time!

Dick was waiting on us as we drove up, and directed us onto one of his three (3) sites. He asked if we wanted to pull-thru, or back in. As we were already situated for backing in, we took this option. Dick had set out little marker flags to line the edges of the site, which served to guide me straight in to the hookups - great idea Dick!

We were all shocked to find out we had spent time working for the same company in Tampa, and had friends in common! It was great catching up on insight as to friends we hadn't seen or heard from in years.

The sites are across the road from strawberry fields (the whole area is well known for growing strawberries), but we were still surprised to see farmhands picking strawberries, as we thought that was done in February.

This is a gem of a place, very close to I-4, very easy to get to and depart from.

We'll certainly be back!


December 2020

Great site

This is a great site! Doverguy was a fantastic host. We only stayed one night but had a great, informative conversation about RVing. Doverguy’s travel stories and advice were invaluable. The stargazing was good. Definitely visit Parksdale Market.


December 2020


A beautiful place to stay and rest right off the interstate. Absolutely amazing host really enjoyed talking to him and learning all about RVing. A wealth of knowledge. Would love to come back in the future.


December 2020

Great place to stay for the strawberry festival

Doverguy, has an ideal setup for boondocking, very considerate and pleasant person. This was our first time using this service so was not sure how it all worked. We wanted to attend the strawberry festival and all of the campgrounds were full in the area. His place worked out wonderful. Wish we would have had more time to trade travel stories. Turns out he travels close to us when he is visiting family in the north.


November 2020

Friendly and Welcoming!

These hosts were welcoming, friendly and extremely accommodating! They were patient with us when we had to cancel our first request, due to tropical storm Eta. We hope to meet up with them another time when the COVID ordeal is over and we can socialize again. Our overnight spot was level and we had everything we could possibly need. Stores to provision at are close by, as is Lazy Days. Thank you for a great spot and for being so welcoming. Also, thank you for being mask friendly! Kathy


April 2020

Great stay at the Orange Grove

Sorry this is a late post, I thought I had left it the day after we left, but for some reason it failed. Dover Guy was a great host and has a very nice set up. We enjoyed talking and they were both very helpful in making suggestions about touring the Tampa area, restaurants, fresh strawberries, etc. The space was very accommodating and allowed privacy and the offer for full hook ups was very generous. We appreciated their hospitality and willing to share their property with us. We hope they will visit NC sometime and also look forward to a return trip to the Grove at some point in the future.


February 2020

Easy going

Had a very nice visit with these gracious hosts. They really went out of their way to make us comfortable. Enjoyed visiting with them.


February 2020

Outstanding hosts!

We loved our time at Doverguy's place. So helpful with the local favorite places to visit! Great property and super quiet neighborhood. Loved how clear the sky was to appreciate the stars! Would highly recommend and we hope to return soon!


February 2020

Great Place And Great Hosts

We enjoyed our stay at Orange Grove. Dick and Pat gave us a little history of the area and the strawberry plants by their house. We even enjoyed strawberry shakes and shortcake with them. They have a beautiful and quiet place. We hope they make it up our way someday. We enjoyed our stay and will come back.


February 2020

A most wonderful visit

You'd be hard pressed to find more pleasant and convenient camping or nicer people anywhere. We now call the hosts our friends and I'm sure we'll stay in touch. Note: they get more requests than they can acommodate, so if you are lucky enough to stay here, please treat them like gold; they truly are. Thank you, Doverguy, for the for the warm welcome and very enjoyable evening.


February 2020

Great stay and gracious host

We had a great stay at Orangegrove with Doverguy. Amenities were terrific and we had two quiet nights’ sleep. We did a little RV shopping while there. There are several gigantic RV dealerships in the area.
Thanks again Doverguy



February 2020

Wonderful hosts, Wonderful location!

Our hosts were wonderful people and very gracious! We would recommend this location...easy access and set up! We were truly blessed to stay there and hope to return soon!


January 2020


The hosts kindly greeted us upon our arrival and helped us settle into our comfortable camping spot. The Orange Grove is conveniently located near many services and so many strawberry fields! We have visited here in the past and it’s always a great stay!

Paradise in Florida

This is our second time staying with Dover Guy. What amazing hosts they are! The first night we gathered around with another couple staying there and chatted until dark when the mosquitoes came out and drove all of us indoors.

Dover Guy goes out of his way to make sure his guests are situated comfortably and tucked in for the evening. You couldn’t ask for anything more.

Dover Guy's site, Orange Grove, is close to I-4 where it is easy to hop on and head into Tampa or visit one of the many mega RV dealerships within three or four miles of his place.

Once again the warmth of the fellowship will continue long after we leave here, and we are so thankful that our paths crossed. Please come to Georgia for a visit. We would love to see you again. We are normally home November through March. Again, thank you so much for allowing us to stay here.


January 2020

Very positive!

What a great couple. Excellent accommodations. We will stop back next winter when we have more time. Would have liked to stay longer.


January 2020

gracious souls

Loved this area.. great hosts. Lots of info for the area and RVing. Great space for 3 campers. Pull threw. With water, sewage and electric. Thank you for the awesome stay. Looking forward to seeing you guys again in the future. . God bless.


October 2019

Doverguy is an excellent host! Thanks!

We spent two rainy but restful nights at Doverguy's residence. Our host was there to greet us and give us directions to access the water and 30A power. We enjoyed several conversations to discuss mutual interests. We were encouraged to let our dogs run off leash in a large fenced area, Firm grassy site with flowering shrubs, pines and Spanish moss. We highly recommend.


March 2019

Great amenities

Was nice to chat with couple. I think there was some miscommunication between the stay dates. We were scheduled for friday March 15th and check out the 17th. He must have thought that day was a Thursday because he put it in my review that i was an absentee stay on Thursday. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding or any inconvenience.


March 2019

Boondocking witth FHUs!

Very convenient site with easy access to highway into Tampa. Level grass site with FHU available! Gracious friendly hosts with lots of RVing experience. We were able to leave our rig on site with no worries while going with friends into Tampa. Quiet and peaceful location. We would definately stay again and hopefully have more time to get to know them better.


February 2019

Nicest place/nicest people

Just try to find nicer people. I don’t think it’s possible. Beautiful property, great location, and generous hearts. What a find. We look forward to the next time since this short stay already has us feeling like old friends.


February 2019

Very enjoyable

Nice property & host willing to tell you of places to go & things to see.


February 2019

Very pleasurable and honorable folks

Dover Guy is a very pleasurable hosts. He have a really nice place that is easy to get to and easy to move around in to get parked for your stay.
I hope stop in the future to stay at Orange Grove again. A Nice quiet place that is not to far from the best strawberry shortcake that you can have. Highly recommend this host to anyone looking to stay in the Dover, Fla area.


January 2019

Lovely Spot

What a lovely spot we had at Dick and Pat's. We were welcomed with bright smiles and a beautiful setting. The "Orange Grove" is a very peaceful campsite. Dick and Pat have worked very hard at making guests comfortable with full hook ups. We enjoyed a 2 night stay and wished we could have stayed longer! On our first morning Dick brought us some very delicious muffins that were much appreciated! They welcomed our dog, Clancy and he also had a wonderful visit basking in some Florida sunshine! Thank you Dick and Pat and we hope to see you on our "Country Road" in W.V.


January 2019

Welcoming Hosts

We were greeted upon our arrival by our gracious hosts. A beautiful spot formerly an orange grove was very comfortable and conveniently near our route of travel. We really appreciated the fresh baked muffins Doverguy brought us for breakfast! Yum!


January 2019

Outstanding host and location.

Would highly recommend the Doverguy and his lovely wife. Their property is very accessible and conveniently located off of the interstate. Our only regret was we were in the area for the rv show and only had a short time to visit . We did get to set and talk around campfire and discuss our travels. Hope to be able to get back and spend more time just visiting.

Strawberry Delight!

You could search the world over and not find a friendlier or warmer couple than our Boondockers Welcome hosts, Doverguy and his wife. --- We came here to attend the Tampa RV show. The first night around a nice campfire we enjoyed the warmth of the fire and the fellowship. --- Doverguy told us that strawberries were in season, and we had to take advantage of our timing. He suggested two excellent places to go for strawberry milkshakes and strawberry shortcake. We are thankful that we took him up on his suggestions. --- Everything was exactly as described and more. With easy access to I-4, this is a great place to stay while visiting Tampa and the surrounding area. We can’t say enough about how much we were made to feel at home here. Thank you for an enchanting visit.


January 2019

Very nice

We spent two nights at this host site and we were very happy. Host came out with maps to show us where things were and also recommend a few local sites. Very good time.


December 2018

Very friendly

Even though we could only stay for a little bit and got side tracked over towards an airstream dealership; we loved our stay here. Easy in and out and all the conveniences while camping. When we make our trip back to FL we will definitely try to stay here again and maybe go for a bike ride!!


December 2018

Excellent Hosts

Have stayed here before and they continue to go out of there way to make sure their guests are comfortable. These hosts were the reason we joined Boondockers Welcome and they along with many other fantastic hosts we have met at Boondockers Welcome are the reason we keep coming back.


May 2018

Amazing site

Doverguy and his wife were not home, one of the neighbors came over and showed us where to set up. The site was beautiful which we could have stayed one more night just to relax!


April 2018

Great site

What a great setup- they've gone all-out for their guests. We wish we'd gotten to know our hosts better. A nice quiet spot.

Canadian’s visiting Florida

Dick and Pat are a wonderful friendly couple. We enjoyed our stay immensely. They were so kind to us. Thank you so much. Hope to see you in Canada sometime.


January 2018

Perfect hosts

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Orange Grove in January of 2018. You couldn’t ask for better hosts, kind, considerate, friendly, and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with them.


November 2017

Awesome once again

I stayed with these wonderful folks about a year ago and recently when I contacted them about another stay, they were just as warm and welcoming.

The full hookups were so appreciated on the hot FL days!

It's a great location near I4. And if you're there in strawberry season, tooooo <emoji> convenient to fabulous shortcake at Parkesdale Farms!


April 2017

What can I say, fantastic hosts!

Stayed with them last year in April, great visit. Stayed again in November 2016 and for a couple nights in March 2017. They have always been extremely nice and helpful hosts. Boondockers Welcome hit a home run when Doverguy signed up to be a host. I echo what everyone else says . . . what a bonus to have full hookups while boondocking.


February 2017

Nice People, Great Setup

We spent a few night boondocking at doverguy's location and the experience couldn't have been better. They are wonderful people and we really enjoyed our stay. The location was incredibly convenient and the water, electric and sewer setup was fantastic. We would recommend doverguy's location without hesitation. Thanks for a wonderful stay!


February 2017

A Great Introduction to Boondocking

My wife and I spent four nights boondocking with Doverguy this week and it was a great experience for us, and a great introduction to boondocking, since it was our first time. He and his wife have a great setup with plenty of room for several RVs to camp at one time, conveniently located near I-4. They made us feel very welcome and we would highly recommend them as hosts for anyone traveling in the area.


January 2017

Excellent host

I stayed 3 nights on Doverguy's beautiful property in Jan '17. He and his wife are lovely, great hosts and so very accommodating. This was my first stay using boondockers welcome and I couldn't have been happier. He has 30A hook ups with water and sewer. He is also located in an ideal location in Tampa, not too far off of the highways with plenty of room to maneuver. I would definitely stay again!

Thanks again Doverguy for having me your hospitality was greatly appreciated!



November 2016

Wonderful folks and location

I stayed with Doverguy Oct. 21, 2016. The location is convenient to Tampa and Orlando. I enjoyed not only the RV amenities but also our conversations about RVing, life, and family. I highly recommend their awesome hospitality. They even offered my dog the use of the fenced yard by their house!


April 2016

Super nice Hosts !!!

Stayed with these hosts over the Easter weekend. Extremely nice couple. We accepted a invitation to attend Easter services with them, very glad we did. Hope all hosts that we meet through Boondockers Welcome are as nice as they are. Extra nice to have full hookups for the RV.


February 2016

A wonderful experience!

Dick and Pat are wonderful hosts. We stayed here while we went to the Tampa Supershow which is just a short drive away. They were so hospitable and could not do enough for us. The site is huge and we had access to electricity, water and a dump station if we needed them.


February 2016

excellent hosts

We spent two days here sharing their hospitality with a couple other boondockers. What a ball. The whole group intermingled. We felt sorry for Dick as he serviced everyone's needs in the pouring rain with a smile. We will be back again and had promises they will be up to visit us as well.


January 2016

New Friends!

We are so happy to have new friends in this area. They are a delight to know. Sending a big thank you to both of you.


January 2016

Great folks with a super place to stay

This was our first boondocking experience and we are happy that Dick and his wife shared their place with us. Great easy parking with full hookup during our stay and they provided many helpful travel tips during our stay. If you're passing through the Tampa Orlando alley on I-4 we highly recommend visiting with these folks. Easy access to interstate and multiple shopping options in the area. Hope to see y'all down the road.


January 2016

Wonderful place to stay

Very nice accommodating couple. They had a rally to attend, but let us stay. Full hookup if needed and both 30 and 50 amp available! There are a number of spots on grass and lots of room for any size rig. The location is easy to find and not far from I-4. We had a peaceful quiet night.

Very nice place to stay.

This was our first time using boondockers. The host was very gracious upon our arrival. Helped us get set up, told us about local information. His set up is very nice with the strawberry fields around his location.
It is really quiet and peaceful here.
Again thank you for allowing us to stay it worked out as a perfect location to meet up with our friends and attend a concert at the strawberry festival.

Very friendly and cooperative.

We have not stayed here yet, but will be there in mid January. Dick has called me to ensure we will be properly accommodated. We are looking forward to meeting him and Pat.
