Love them to death!

We had the great pleasure of being boondockers at Butch n Judy in their home town in Florida. Now we had a chance to reciprecate back to them as good friends and as boondockers with open arms. We had a big feast together and played sequence. We will always have room and make room for them. Love you both.

Two of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet.

We had such a good time with Suwannee 16, they are very considerate and kind. We feel like they are family.


September 2018

Great guests

Butch & Judy were heading north in heavy rain and bad traffic, when they decided to take a break. Found us on BoonDockers Welcome, made a last minute request, and came on in. Typical BDW guest - friendly, personable, grateful for our calm port in a storm. They were tired, so we didn't have much chance to talk, but I hope they stop by again.


September 2018

A lovely couple.

Suwannee16 were a wonderful couple that are welcome anytime they are traveling through. I wish we could have had more time to visit. We hope you return and let us take you on a tour of Berry!

Fabulous place and Fabulous people.

Wonderful host

Suwannee 16 were wonderful host they made me and my dog feel very welcome. Helped me back up my trailer, sites over look the suwannee river on a very well maintained grass yard my dog enjoyed napping on it watching boats pass by. Highly recommend


July 2019

Right on the River!

We loved staying here. The site it right on the river and the couple were so sweet and accommodating.


June 2019

Truly Wonderful People and Place!

My family and I had the most amazing stay with Suwannee16. The hosts are incredibly kind, generous and beautiful people. Directions were very helpful. We let them know ahead of time what our ETA was and they came out to help us park as soon as we arrived. We had lots of opportunity to converse with them and explore around the area. We took a day to visit Manatee Springs, then another full day to relax at the property and have dinner with our hosts.

We fished, enjoyed some paddle boarding and kayaking on the Suwannee River and had the opportunity to explore more of the river with the couple on their boat. The hosts were so informative and helpful. We all had such a blast and couldn't be more grateful to have had the privilege to stay here and meet these wonderful people!

Paradise on the Suwannee

This was our first Boondockers Welcome experience and let me just tell you- we are spoiled for the rest of them! First of all, their property is an oasis on the river. Honestly never seen a more beautiful river front property in my life. The peaceful setting is just the beginning though. They have full hookups, offered us use of their first level restroom and warm outdoor shower, and even had a baby swing we could use for our son! We had some trouble with our RV toilet we were trying to fix and had it not been for Butch and his help, we would’ve never figured it out. Truly the nicest people and best experience that we are so grateful for. We will most certainly be back!


May 2019

Proud and glad of being the 84th positive recommendation on Suwannee16!

After a 50-day travel in Florida, we were slowly on our way back to Québec City. Frankly, we were a bit tired... The forecasted weather for the coming days wasn’t very good... In our mind, we were a bit confused... : stay one more week as planned or go back home immediately and quickly? And then..., we discovered this oasis during two days... The second day was among the best days in our travel...

Out of the 10 to 15 Boondockers Welcome hosts members we have visited since 2015, Suwannee16 appears to be a treasure... including the following jewels : Judy and Butch are very kind people, generous hosts and interesting people to talk with, the Real Florida (yes, there exists something else than beaches, sand and... car traffic... in Florida... Yes, bear with us!), the Suwannee River, a nice spot to boondocke at less than 20 feet and... 8 feet high to the river... the Manattee Springs... The amazing Fanning Springs that Judy and Butch let us discovering in a boat tour of one hour on the Suwannee river... the crystal water from springs...

What a nice stop!!! Can you imagine being sat down and drinking slowly a coffee early in the morning at 5 feet from the river... while some 3-feet long Gulf Sturgeons are splashing loudly on the river... It is quiet... Wouah!!!

And the cherry on the top of the sundae... Judy and Butch invited us to visit them again next year... What ask else?

Thanks Judy and Butch. Hope to welcome you in Québec City...

Beautiful place in front of the river with lovely hosts

We enjoyed staying with chose very kind hosts.

We were there just for one night, the place is simply beautiful.

Had fun playing card game with our hosts ! Guy is ready for a revenge, next time men will son ! 😉

Hope to see you again on our next trip.

Thank you for tour hospitality.

Beautiful Banks of the Suwnnee

Our short stay at Suwannee 16 was suweeet! Arriving in the rain our hosts greeted us with open arms and made us feel right at home. We enjoyed a quiet morning walk and continued on our journey along the Gulf coast.


April 2019

A warm welcome and kindness all around

After a drive up from St-Pete’s through heavy rainstorms yesterday we were welcomed graciously on a same day request at Butch & Judy’s amazing riverside property. It was a real treat to spend time with these wonderful people and share our adventures and exchange experiences. They are truly great ambassadors for the boondocking experience. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. We hope we meet again someday.

Boondocking at “SUWANEE 16”

Boondocking is a relatively new word to us. If all future Boondocking experiences are as wonderful as the time we spent with Judy and Butch, we are “hooked”!! Our hosts made this first experience delightful … a great site, a wonderful view of the Suwanee River, quiet and peaceful. THANKS AGAIN JUDY AND BUTCH – we shall return. Lloyd and Charlotte

Another terrific Boondockers Welcome experience with Suwannee16

These folks are GREAT! Southern hospitality at its finest. They were ready for my arrival, had power and water ready. They have great property right on the bank or the legendary Suwannee River. They have shower facilities as well as toilet facilities. And, you can be as involved with them and their family & friends as you care to be - or stay off to yourself. The location is quiet, serene and gorgeous other than the occasional speedboat going up and down the river - I found that entertaining, personally. I stayed with Suwannee16 once before about two years ago and that time was terrific and this time was better. Thanks, Judy & Butch. You really know how to host fellow travelers.


December 2018

The loveliest people!

Stayed with Judy & Butch for the second time - felt like staying with old friends. My dog & I holed up in our rig, just relaxing & reading because it bucketed rain pretty much our entire stay. But Judy came down last night with an umbrella to see how we were getting along - they are really the sweetest people. I hope to be able to repay their kindness if and when they ever visit Vancouver Island.


December 2018

Great hosts!

Great site, great location, and great hosts. They even invited us in their home for dinner and introduced us to a new board game. Our two dogs loved the fact they could run out in the open. We had a great time! Thanks!


December 2018

Hospitality at it best

We ended up spending multiple nights at Suwannee16 and we loved it!
The hosts took us on a boatride up the river to Manatee spring and it was the best.
Ended up sharing a couple of meals and games in the evening.
We will definitely be back and try to beat the ladies in a game of Sequence at least once!
Thanks fot a wonderful and restfull stay


November 2018

A Beautiful spot

Our stay with Butch and Judy was wonderful, they are very gracious kind and nice hosts that were very accommodating friendly and welcomeing.
The spots that we parked in are right on the river and very relaxing with a great view of the river out of the front of our coach. There was bird life and we could see fish jumping in the water it was just a beautiful spot. Thank you very much for all your hospitality in a wonderful spot


November 2018

Warm and welcomeing.

Judy and Butch were great hosts. Wonderful listening to their stories about traveling.


November 2018

River kayaking, relaxation

We stayed two nights at Judy and Butch’s quiet family compound on the Suwannee River in rural Florida on our way north after visiting some Florida springs. We can ditto all the other reviews and can definitely wholeheartedly recommend a stay here. If you decide to do so, you won’t be disappointed. There are many surprises that await you! We arrived late one afternoon and joined Judy, Butch and their two old friends (plus more family members) for a dinner in town. It was a relaxed and easygoing evening. The next day was Thanksgiving and we were invited to join the group plus other family members for a big dinner. We so enjoyed meeting everyone and learning about their different backgrounds and travels. It was a real pleasure staying here and we hope to return next year. We certainly had a lot of laughs 😀😀


November 2018

‘Paradise” is an understatement!

From the minute we began driving down the limestone road through the forest to Judy & Butch’s riverside paradise we knew this would be something special. That Judy & Butch are two of the sweetest, kindest hosts we’ve yet encountered was just icing on a very beautiful cake. We stayed two nights and thoroughly enjoyed doing nothing except sitting under the shade of one of their many giant trees and watching the Suwannee roll on by ... exactly what we needed after what seemed like days of endless driving. Having gratefully enjoyed many BoondockersWelcome venues during our 5 months on the road, there are just some places and some hosts that you’ll never forget - Judy & Butch’s Suwannee River paradise is most definitely one of those. We cannot thank them enough.


November 2018

Like staying in a nature preserve

This is our second time staying at this location. The hosts could not be more welcoming or helpful! Their property is so beautiful and quiet, you’ll never want to leave! I really hate leaving to great of a review..... I’m afraid the words getting out and the next time we want to stay here they’ll be booked! It is truly one of the most serene, peaceful, lovely settings I’ve ever stayed! And they’re both so welcoming and helpful..(camper issues). I could go on and on, they’ve honestly restored my faith in humanity that there’s still honest to goodness decent people out there! Love it! Thanks so much for everything!


October 2018

Awesome Hosts!

great location! awesome hosts, made us feel like family.
We always have fun there!


August 2018

Thank you for sharing your riverfront with us

What a wonderful location you have here on the Suwanee River. Your site here is really beautiful, and the fact that you have taken it upon yourself to provide 30A and water is a testament to your love for sharing your place with others. It was a pleasure to be able to visit briefly with you and your family in the midst of the other activities you had going on. For anyone else wondering about getting here, we had no difficulty with our 40ft DP and toad. It is well worth the short distance on the gravel road. Thank you J and B!


August 2018


Great place to spend our birthday.....Butch and Judy were perfect host !! Very peaceful !
Really enjoyed our stay and had lots of fun.......hope we can return the favorite,

Million dollar view :)

The place itself is unbelievably magical. So calm and peaceful. The experience is multiplied by the hosts Judy & Butch who are an amazing couple. They are so welcoming, hearty and generous. It was our first experience with Boondockers Welcome website and honestly we think it can't get any better than this. :))) THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

A piece of heaven.

Traveling with my sick pup and some kind of heavenly miracle happened. It is ungodly hot in Florida, but we were blessed with a few cool offs and we were able to enjoy a lot of outdoor time and sleep with out our air blasting. The cicadas, owls and frogs orchestrated a symphony. My rear doors on my van would not release to open and Judy allowed me to stay another night and sent her wonderful neighbor over to help me out. I was able to troubleshoot my problem and be able to get open so happy I don't have to spend time at the Dodge dealer... so I am headed north today after all. Hope to bring my hubby back with me this fall on our way to the Panhandle. So grateful for my stay here on the Suwannee River. Thanks Judy and Butch!!!!


May 2018

Beautiful views, peaceful location, gracious hosts!

Butch and Judy were amazing hosts and we were so grateful to spend time with them and on their property. Great, shady pad for our RV and access to land for our dogs to run and swim. We couldn’t have had a better time! O

A slice of heaven

If you have the opportunity to stay at Butch and Judy’s you will not be disappointed. They have a beautiful property right on the Swanee river. So peaceful and relaxing. Judy was away but Bruce was a wonderful host, even helping us fix a sticky door that had been a problem on our rv. We have stayed at many spots along our 5 month road trip and this one was by far at the very top of our favorites. Such gracious host. Thank you for sharing your amazing slice of heaven.


April 2018

One of a kind place!

Beautiful location- great hosts! We kept pretty busy going to the local springs so I wish we had more time with Judy and Butch ( we planned too much haha) but they have to be some of the nicest people around! Thanks for taking our family in💕


April 2018

What a delightful stay!

After hosting quite a few boondockers on our own home front we finally had an opportunity to be on the receiving end of being hosted for the first time. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Our hosts, Butch and Judy were wonderfully helpful, friendly, and delightful hosts. We feel we have made two great friends and that we will enjoy spending time with them when our paths cross again. Their property on the Suwannee River was beautiful and so peaceful! We were able to try our hand at fishing on the river, we visited Manatee Springs where we saw lots of wildlife and overall enjoyed the great outdoors. They are welcome to our place in Mississippi anytime. Thanks Butch and Judy!


April 2018

Best Nature Location

Recieved a prompt reply to my request in less than an hour.
The location is the nicest Boondockers Welcome location we've visited in North America. Suited in a beatiful nature, green, quiet, peaceful atmosphere beside the Suwannee River. It worths coming especially.
The hosts Butch & Judy were so welcoming. We had interesting conversations about their pioneering life in the earlly days in their location and the progressed development along the
years. Nice to meet a couple with a vision.
It was difficult for us to leave.
Highly recommended.


April 2018

Meet as strangers leave as family

As our first experience with Boondockers, we are forever spoilt. We had the best experience in camping with this couple. We truly feel like we left family when we left. We felt like we were visiting family while here instead of just a camping. Butch helped us make a minor repair to our trailer. Butch took us and his wife Judy to put our kayaks in up the river and then came to check on us in his boat. He took my injured husband back with him and Judy and I continued down the river - more like friends than “hosts”. Cannot write here all the wonderful times we had playing games, river trip with gator viewing (they knew all the best places), and day trip advice.
We had a hard time leaving as it was as though you were leaving family. Forever in our hearts. These two take “hosting” to the extreme. We will be back not only because it’s the best camping spot along the river but because we miss them.


March 2018

Very nice couple!

We had a lovely stay at their beautiful home right on the Suwannee river! They were very gracious hosts even though we took the slow route and came in later than expected. I would highly recommend this beautiful spot!

Beautiful location, and even more beautiful hosts

Take every past review and hit repeat. Judy and Butch are two of the most genuine people you will ever meet in your entire life. The welcomed us in like family, and I found myself in awe of how strangers can come together and within moments of meeting be so comfortable. We enjoyed meals together and lots of wonderful conversation over a campfire hosting other boondockers and friends for an evening filled with music, laughter, and great food. We only hope we get to reconnect with them one day either in Nova Scotia or again with them during our future winter travels. Judy and Butch, thank you again. (Susie and Matt)


February 2018

Fantastic hosts

This is our second time here. They go above and beyond being a host. Very friendly, fantastic campfires and potlucks with other boondockers and their friends. Beautiful sunsets along the Suwannee River. Lots of solitude. Very accommodating and helpful with our kayaks. They should be the super hosts. Thank you for everything

Wonderful Spot on the Suwannee River!

The hosts are absolutely delightful. They have such a beautiful spot and have some pretty interesting stories! We loved our stay here and are appreciative they are sharing their beautiful property with fellow boondockers. Thank you!


February 2018

A little piece of paradise

What a fantastic location and hosts! Quiet spot right on the river with lots of space for our daughters and pup to play. We couldn't have asked for a better stop for our first boondockers experience. We'd love to stay again if we pass through that direction again.


February 2018

A little slice of heaven

We had a wonderful stay with Suwanee 16. They are such friendly and generous people and really make you feel welcome. Their home on the river is so peaceful, with birds & beautiful sunsets. We felt like we were seeing the “real” Florida. We are rving “newbies” and appreciated their hospitality.

What a truly exceptional visit

It is hard to explain in words about our wonderful visit with Butch and Judy. Not only do they have an incredibly beautiful compound on the Suwanne River, they possess that warm southern hospitality. Loved learning about the locality, from the tree farms, to the Main Line Road, even a reference to a local mechanic.
Thank you Butch and Judy. We look forward to seeing you again.

Excellent hosts

Butch & Judy are the type of folks that we hope to ALWAYS run into! Super friendly and most accommodating. Kim & I both wish we could've stayed longer. Gorgeous place right on the Suwannee River, with full hookups, including 30 amp electric! Whenever we come back this way again, we will definitely give them a shout and hopefully get to know these fine folks a little better. Good People.


January 2018

An amazing first experience with boondockerswelcome.

This is our first time using BoondockersWelcome and I can't imagine that there is a more beautiful setting or more friendly hosts. Butch greeted us and helped us get into the site. We had access to the beautiful grounds on the Suwannee River. Judy and Butch invited us to their home after we returned back from a nearby restaurant - delicious grouper. I wish we could have stayed longer. We will come back on our return to Florida.


January 2018

Fabulous place to stay!

We stayed six nights with another couple at Suwannee 16 and thoroughly enjoyed our visit and hosts. The hosts were gracious, friendly and so very accommodating! The spot we occupied was beautiful and surrounded by a variety of large trees and overlooking the Suwannee River. Full hook ups were provided as well as nice campfires. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this place!!

Judy and Butch are the greatest, they have a beautiful parklike property on the river. They very accommodating and friendly. We are staying on for a few more days.
Full hookups overlooking the river, evening campfires and conversation, a fantastic relaxing visit.
Thanks so much to Butch and Judy

Very Relaxing spot!

They were great hosts with a beautiful location on the river! Wish we had some vessels for the water to really enjoy it. But overall the experience was great and we appreciate the hospitality they showed. Thank you!


January 2018


What a great couple with an incredible location! Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us. We were treated royally by Butch (not Chuck) and Judy and enjoyed dinner and playing Sequence with them in the evening. Thanks once again and we hope to visit in the future.

Fun Hosts in a Lovely Setting!

Suwannee16 is a welcoming and fun couple who had us in stitches during our stay! We enjoyed them very much and hope to host them one day.

Amazing time

We stayed at Butch and Judy’s in January and had a wonderful time they open their home to us introduced us to their friends

The location is remote and beautiful and peaceful and we can’t wait to return the favour


January 2018


We stay there this January as one of our first experiences Boondocking and we can tell you how wonderful. It was what an amazing little secluded spot and judy and butch are a wonderful couple who opened up their home to us and introduced us to their friends. We had a great night and can't wait to return the favour


January 2018

Slice of paradise

Waking up to a still river, birds and the rising sun is an ideal way to start a crisp morning. This location is so good for the soul. It’s peaceful and is owned by some wonderful hosts. Butch and Judy were warm and welcoming to our family and made us feel at home. Plenty to see and do and finally got to see a manatee and a bald eagle up close. We thoroughly enjoyed our chats and found it very hard to leave. Sean was very grateful for the exercise as well. Thanks so much for accepting us and being great hosts.

Mr and Mrs Suwannee16 are the most wonderful and down to earth and kind hosts. What a delightful place to enjoy the natural beauty of nature around the Suwannee river. For being my first time using Boondockers Welcome, I am so happy it was this place. I so enjoyed our talks and walks and learned so much. I also know my dog loves this place as well and wants to come back. Thank you so much for everything. I feel that I've made long time friends.

What a lovely place to stay! Theses hosts are very kind and have such a beautiful location to share with visitors! The river is gorgeous and the boat rides are the best!

I was so ready to write a recommendation for this slice of paradise but then I realized I couldn't describe it any better than previous guests so I won't try but I will say you have NO idea what your missing if you pass this up!! We cannot thank them enough for their hospitality and if they are not the happiest, sweetest people in this world I don't know who are!


May 2017

Awesome Hosts and beautiful location.

Not only is the site beautiful! With a riverside view, deer walking through the property, owl hooting their hellos, just a beautiful relaxing spot.
The hosts are super inviting, friendly and gracious.
We really enjoyed our stay, have developed a long and lasting friendship and are looking forward to another visit.


April 2017

Most fabulous hosts in a truly unique location!

As soon as I arrived "Suwannee16" met me at the road and welcomed me to their "home". And as I parked my rig and started setting up the absolute grandeur of the location set in! This is one of the most beautiful spots I have ever been! Words are inadequate to share how glorious of a spot this is! And Mr & Mrs Suwannee16 were the most gracious of hosts! I was so tempted to pop the wheels off the rig and just move in! I cannot thank them enough for the grace and hospitality they displayed towards me during my visit. They are Boondocker hosts extraordinaire! Thank you!


April 2017

Wonderful spot, excellent hosts.

This super-quiet spot was perfect for us for an overnight on our way to a conference in Orlando. The owners were so accommodating and provided everything we needed to relax after being on the road all day. The spot itself is beautiful, and a half mile walk up a quiet limestone / sand road takes you to a landing where we could take the dogs to jump in the river. We sure appreciated their friendly and kind manner, and their beautiful space. I highly recommend them.

"Way down upon the Suwannee River "

Oh what a beautiful, peaceful place! We camped right by the river, enjoying our first blackwater river scenery; ... something we had never experienced before. It was so different and so beautiful!
Suwannee16 were truly warm and hospitable hosts. They were out there to greet us upon arrival and made us feel most welcome. Thank you both so very much for inviting us onto your property, and for sharing your genuine warm southern hospitality.

Thank you so much for everything

Suwannee16 is the most perfect place we ever been since we are fulltimers.

Thank you so much for this time shared with you !
We really hope to meet you again some day !

Wonderful! :)

It was a perfect weekend to see our friends on the river again. I'm so thankful to know such wonderful people. The location is excellent to visit both Manatee and Fanning Springs - we took the boat ride from Manatee and it was a beautiful way to get to know the river better. Until next time!

Great Location - Great Hosts!

Suwannee16 are terrific hosts. They are right in the spirit of the nomadic travelers that RVers and Vandwellers are. They were awaiting my arrival, had power ready for me and made me feel at home. Due to extreme storm warnings, we didn't have much time to get to know each other. Their site is perfectly set up for a visiting RVer.
They did everything to make me comfortable including offering me a more protected location for parking my rig - we were under tornado watch at the time. You'll love Suwannee16 and you'll love their location. Thanks you guys, I hope we get to do it again sometime when we can get to know each other better.

River front

What a great spot on the river! These hosts were very kind and their property was lovely! We backed up right next to their river and had plenty of space to ourselves! If it wasn't for us not having any cell service at all, we would've stayed an extra night!
The hosts were generous and gave us a bag of Florida oranges when we departed!
We would stay again if ever in the area!

Awesome Experience

We had such a wonderful experience there. The hosts were super helpful and were spot on with helping us get backed in. This was our first trip ever with an RV and our 36' long trailer can be challenging for us. Sitting talking with them in the evening, they made our family feel very welcome and gave us valuable info that we used on our next stop! The view was amazing, I wish it was a bit warmer and we could have stayed a day longer to enjoy the river. Definitely a wonderful and peaceful spot to stop.

Great people, great location

This was our first boondocking experience and nicer people would be hard to find. We enjoyed the river, campfire but most of all the people. Thank you Suwannee16.

Super wonderful hosts!

Suwannee16 are one of the friendliest, welcoming folks with whom I’ve stayed during my worldwide travels. We shared many stories of our adventures, a delicious fish fry, and many other happy moments. I highly recommend them as wonderful hosts whom I was so fortunate to meet.

Too Good !

We had a lovely time. They will send you precise directions, follow them and dont use your GPS. Only 15 min from HW98. Perfect spot, even had sewer hookup! We really enjoyed their company, and they even taught us 2 new card games. Thanks also for the loan of 2 kayaks so we could experience the river! It was so good we stayed an extra night.

Wonderful Hosts, Beautiful Location

We really enjoyed meeting the hosts. They were awesome about returning texts and gave great directions. The site was very spacious.
We had so much in common. We played cards with them at night.
only wish we could've stayed longer.
Will definitely go back.
Unfortunately the weather was a little chilly so we didn't get to go boating or kayaking together.

We are so grateful to Suwannee16 for all of their gracious hospitality during our short stay. The spot is just heavenly - right on the river. The perfect place to rest and recharge with lovely people who made us feel so welcome. Thank you!!

Superb view and awesome hosts!

They are a delightful couple and wonderful hosts with a beautiful home and view of the Suwanee River. Our dogs, my fiancée and I had the most peaceful night’s sleep while parked on their property. We will definitely stop to see them again.

Gorgeous spot on the river!

This place is stunning, what a lovely spot to rest for an evening or two! Right on the river, it was quiet and our hosts couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming! If traveling this way again we would definitely stop here!
