First Guests

This couple were perfect guests; they spent 2 nights at our site and we wouldn't have known they were there. Left our site spotless. We would love to host them again anytime.

Ron+Jan only stayed with us one night. They were quiet, respectful, and friendly. We'd definitely host them again.

Great guest. After setup, we didn't know they were here!

Ron and Jan just stayed one night. They needed a break from the heat and a place to dump. Once we got them setup, we didn't hear a peep until they headed out the next morning. These guys are well traveled and no bother. They are welcome here anytime.

Hardly knew they were there.

This couple was extremely courteous and self sufficient. They arrived while we were away and followed texted instructions to set up. By the time we arrived home late that evening they were buttoned down. We didn't get to meet them since they left early to attend church but we would be glad to have them back. Hopefully next time we will meet.

Convenient and hassle free.

This was our first formal Boondockers Welcome stay. We have hosted once so far. Prior to our visit, we received thorough instructions. The site was very nice and offered electric and water hook ups. We got level easily. We heard some traffic noise, but it wasn’t obtrusive. My husband had hoped to hear the train whistle, but didn’t. We would have felt a little more comfortable if we had been able to meet someone during our stay. I guess we were feeling a little insecure since we are newbies to boondocking. All in all, it was a good overnight stay and we would happily return. Thank you Ron & Jan for opening up your “20 Acre Wood” We left $5 for electric on the porch and petted the friendly cat. 😺

Excellent

Short distance from the interstate. Easy access even though remote location. Quiet; great for dog walking, etc. Family attentive and great to meet.

Lovely tranquil spot

This property is lovely and quiet. It was quite a challenge go us to get in the gate with our 26 foot trailer, but we took it slow. Or clip on mirror was knocked off the truck by the bushes on the side, but Karen's grandson very kindly went and retrieved it for us. The turn around was also very tight because of the turning radius of the truck and trailer and a large pile of dead wood on the inner edge of the turn. But some trimming of the sticks and twigs and me holding the bigger pieces of wood we managed to scrape past and went and settled into the site. Unfortunately we did not end up spending the night as the weather report was predicting rain and storms, so we opted to leave instead of traveling on the wet gravel road in the morning (We had just had the rig washed). But quite a nice overnight spot with easy access from I 75.

Great spot in the woods!

Thanks to 20 Acre Wood for a nice place to land each day. Since I usually dry camp the 30 amp hookup was a welcome treat!
Would stay again if in the area!!!

Great spot

We stayed recently for 3 nights and were welcomed by lovely Karen and her daughter in law on arrival. The spot was flat, dark and leafy. There was a small hum of road noise and we had to watch a few branches on the driveway in but overall ideal spot to explore local springs. Thanks!

Thank you! What a SWEET spot!

So much gratitude for my sweet stay at 20 acre wood! Cozy, private and just what I needed!
And the drive through those drapping trees on my way there was breathtaking!

A quiet spot in the woods

This lovely spot in the woods was quiet and peaceful - just my style! I didn't meet Ron and Jan but a relative greeted me warmly upon arrival and answered all my questions. A sweet spot for a smaller rig.

Nice, quiet wooded setting

Thanks to Ron & Jan for allowing us to stay at their woods. Karen was very gracious, hospitable and helpful. I gave Karen $20 for the water and electric use. Would love to return sometime. Again Thank You . If your ever our way, your welcome to stay.

Nice spot in the woods

Nice level spot in the grass, out in a rural area. Dirt Road was a little rough in spots after the rain but didn't have an issue. Very nice meeting hosts sister.

Thank you so much Jan & Ron for allowing my husband & I the privledge of staying at your site. We loved the relaxing atmosphere and natural setting. Your site offered sure a great place to stay after a long day on the road. If you ever come to northern Michigan, please consider staying with us! Again, thank you! Debbie & Klaus

Quiet rural site

We stayed 3 nights and it was pleasant and relaxing! Unfortunately we did not get to meet our host as they where away but they were kind enough to let us stay. They have family on the property but we really did not even know they were there, we said hello in passing. There are many state parks which we and the dogs enjoyed. Would recommend Peperoni's Pizza, we had calzones....delicious! Would definatly return here and highly recommend to fellow Boondockers.

Very nice and private spot!

Nice stay

Our stay was just what we needed, a welcoming place. We ended up staying a shorter time than planned as our plans changed, everyone was flexible. We were given our own space, but the hosts were very open to chatting and we're full of info about the local area.

Lovely wood and nature area

Thank you so much for your hospitality. I had several affairs to handle in the area and stayed for three days. Having water available was a plus for someone traveling in a teardrop. Soloron's sister was also very nice and made the effort to come and great me. Thank you!

Awesome in Alachua

Lovely rural spot in Alachua Florida. Water and electric, surrounded by old Florida oaks and pines. Thank you so much for making our first boondocking experience a great one!

Nice respite near my alma mater

Stopped here on the way north out of Florida and found it to be quiet stop close to I-75. Was grateful for the 30-amp power and water supply. No problem communicating with property owner who lives off site. Had to carefully navigate my 30-foot class C vehicle through gate, but made it through without a problem. Would recommend to others.

welcomed electricity

Beautiful rustic road under all that weeping spanish moss to drive to the camping spot. Just drive slow. I was 108º heat index, I never would have survived without my airconditioning. Thank you again!

tough road

Very quiet place but the road to get there is narrow and rough.

Good for travelers

While the adjacent interstate is a tad noisy, it quiets down at night. It's the erfect location for seeing north central Florida's sights or while traveling around the state. We stayed Feb. 12.

Thanks for a Great Spot!

We stayed with soloron31 for two nights and it was just wonderful. The spot was big and private, and we appreciated having both the water and electric. It was nice to have the time to rest after being on the road for awhile. Thanks again!

Really nice place close to the highway

We stayed there 2 days and it was perfect. The site even had water and electricity, which was fantastic because it was chilly at night! The drive in is beautiful with some low clearance branches to look out for. Our trailer is 10'6" and we had no issue. Our host was very helpful and his family was super friendly. Thanks again for everything!
