Wonderful Hosts and Great Location

We did not do as much exploring as we would have liked (since we got hit with sickness soon after arriving), but we appreciated the proximity to grocery stores to pick up meds, kind hosts, easy access parking... and when we did feel well enough to explore we enjoyed experiencing Cades Cove (Great Smokey Mountains National Park).

Hosts were helpful with parking and kind enough to play with the kids (they loved checking out the RC monster trucks!)

We enjoyed our visit and are grateful for the great location and amazing hosts :)

Great place. Nice people. We felt very safe at the location. They are great hosts and would be great guests as well. They are amazing!


October 2019

Wonderful couple!

We contacted Vrijheid when the Great Smoky Mountains National Park was closed because of high winds. They responded in less than an hour! What a relief as we were without a place to stay the night and it was already after 3 pm.

They were the greatest hosts one could ever imagined. They met us at the drive to help us get settled and offered both water and electric hookups. We did use the electric as the weather had not been good for my solar charging.

I had a wonderful time talking to them both! Very knowledgeable and extremely friendly and helpful. I look forward to seeing them sometime in the future.

Wonderful stay

A very nice setup for unfortunately to brief a stay. Lovely and engaging hosts.

Experts in the RV lifestyle

Nine days into a one-year-long adventure in my Dutchmen Skamper ECO, I commit to two nights at Donna's and Paul's. It was a perfect choice. I'd had a week to work out some bugs as I get to know my new home, and/but these two had answers to questions that I didn't know I had. We talked toilets, awnings, politics, grills, free camping options, and more. Gracious, welcoming and resourceful cheerleaders - I hope to see them on the road.


October 2019

Great visit!

We enjoyed our quiet visit and shared a cup of coffee with our hosts in the morning. Highly recommend this location.


October 2019


This was a great little out of the way place for us to get some peace and quiet. Our hosts were kind and inviting and we had a really nice visit. Thank you Vrijheid.

Friendly couple

We had a wonderful time. They made us feel like family.

Great stay.

Very much enjoyed my stay with this host. They went above and beyond to make me feel welcomed and comfortable.


October 2019

A nice couple of campers

Had a great stay with a couple of full time RV ers. Stayed up too late but got lots of good ideas for my rig. Very nice people.


October 2019

Nice place and nice hosts!

We passed one night with our hosts and we’ve only good remembers. It was calm, relax ... just what we need for traveling from North Carolina to Nashville.

Thank you again! Hope to see you in Quebec. 😉

Amazing spot in the smokies

Our hosts were amazing and this spot couldn't be more perfect
Even though we arrived late we were greeted at the driveway and offered help setting up.
Then invited to hang out and talk and even cooked us a wonderful dinner.
Multiple nights we found ourselves talking with our hosts till well past midnight.
We ended up extending our stay a night we enjoyed it so much. Its Just outside knoxville and a short drive from most of the smokey mountains best sites.
If we are ever in the area again we will definitely come back!

Sweet Gem

Our three night visit with Vrijheid was relaxed and a nice gem of a BW site. Our hosts were friendly and accommodating that generated a fun stop. Next time we're in the area we will not hesitate to return.


September 2019


Excellent hosts. Paul helped by making extra leveling blocks for my camper. A wonderful couple. I look forward to their visit to my boondocking property soon.


August 2019

Refresh and repair

This couple is a rare find. Their hospitality made us feel welcome, and help made us safer on the road. We had the best possibly experience!! We hope to stay with them again. Our kids LOVED their dogs, and mrs host even helped our daughter with learning to tie shoes. Such a great couple!


August 2019

Great location and hosts

Had a great type with the hosts. They are very interesting to talk to. They feed us and provided dessert! Follow their instructions to the letter. It can be a bit intimidating on the road to the site but they provide a great You Tube video of the access. Make sure you view it.

Sorry we cut our stay short

Beautiful location. Due to back problems their offers to unhook and hook up our 5th wheel were fantastic. Great conversation unfortunately cut short due my back problems. We had planned to stay two full days, ended being overnight. So glad we stopped by. Thanks for hosting us.


July 2019

Great Stay

I highly recommend staying here. Host are very nice. Well maintained Gravel Site has easily accessible electric hookups and water. Close proximity to the highway made an ideal stop on my trip.


July 2018

Great hosts

I had a very relaxing experience with Paul and Donna. Great people and great conversation. If I am ever in this part of TN I am definitely going to visit them again. My dog loved playing with their dogs too.


July 2018

Easy going

Again, Paul and Donna were so kind and cheerful. I really love the nature (no street sounds) and level spot for my class B. Electricity was appreciated for this toasty night to power my a/c. Thank you both again.

Beautiful space with the nicest people

We stayed for 3 nights with Paul and Donna. Great flat concrete spot on one side of property. You have your own yard to enjoy. They are redoing the house and we loved getting to know them and help do some work around their property. Super sweet and handy people. Even helped us repair some of our stuff. We enjoyed dinners and conversation around the fire. Hard for us to leave but we already had other reservations. Would highly recommend if you want a nice quiet slice of tranquility.


June 2018

Warm, friendly hosts!

What a delightful stay! This was my first experience with BDW and could not have been nicer. The site was level (yay for me in a class B with no levelers) and easy. The hosts were both present and cheerful and so kind! Thank you. Highly recommend.


June 2018

Welcoming Hosts

Vrijheid were waiting when we arrived and provided us with a raised Motorhome concrete pad compleat with 50/30 amp connections and water hookup. They offered to help work on any needed RV repairs that we might need. While they were both very involved with rebuilding a house on the site, they dropped what they were doing to sit and converse with us whenever we were around. We would like to go back just to visit! Thank-You Vrijheid !


June 2018

Another Great Stay

We enjoyed our time getting to know Paul and Donna. You really couldn't ask for a better place to stay, it's like camping, but with full hookups. We enjoyed getting to know them, and their adventures. We learned a lot, and had a great time. We ate some great burgers too! Thank you so much for all you did for us.


May 2018

Great hosts.

Just stayed one night and felt like we've known these folks for a long time. Enjoyed visiting them so much and hope to see them again.

Beautiful Property, Wonderful People

This was our first "boondock" with a host. Our stay with Donna and Paul was beyond our expectations. Their property is so beautiful, and they were so friendly and welcoming, it was almost like family, rather than someone we had barely met. They're friendly and welcoming, but not to the point of being intrusive.

They have more experience than we do at full-time RVing, and they were quick to share their experience and knowledge with us. Paul even helped us figure out a couple of issues we had with our fifth-wheel. I just can't recommend them enough. I believe we've made new friends that we will be in contact with as we travel.

Because they really want those who stay with them to be well accommodated, they have put in plugs for 20, 30 and 50 amp service, and also have water available. Really, it's partial hookups from a boondock host.

We have a 32' fifth-wheel, and it was pretty tight getting it into the spot. I think longer than we are would be a real challenge for either a bumper pull or a fifth-wheel. However, I think you might get a little longer class A or C, as you could just pull straight in, and the pad is pretty long.

Wonderful stay

Great experience our first Boondock-stay. Paul an Donna offer an excellent place to stay with good service. Nice to have spend the morning hours together and learn from you about the Tennessee view through Dutch glasses. Think Donna is underestimating her dutch knowledge. If an American can speak about ‘onbepaalde tijd’, it’s well appreciated. We enjoyed!!

A party

It was a party to at Donna and Paul, host’s of “Vrijheid”.
The beautiful surroundings. A place with feeder for birds and deer for the RV. An RV place with everything on and op. Paul and Donna have been very helpful and have our super advice given for our journey through the USA and Canada. We also have delicious Dutch talk to each other.
It was a party. Thanks, Rob and Nelleke

Very nice couple in lovely area

We spent a night at the hosts' place. It was very clean and quiet. The kids loved the opportunity to play on the grassy fields and do a fire.

Hosts were both very nice and accomodating.


April 2018

Such an amazing place with an even greater couple💕

When we arrrived we were warmly greeted and hooked up- the location is centrally located with a bonus of a beautiful landscape! One thing we were not expecting is the hospitality that was given. Paul & Donna are true gems with their cute little furr babies. We hope to see them again. Words can’t express how grateful we are for our stay with them.

Very nice secluded spot in quiet hillside neighborhood

Great welcoming couple with a nice spot to boondock


December 2017

What a great host !

We stayed with this very nice couple for an over night on Dec 6th.
Emailed the night before and recieved the next morning a prompt telephone call.
Uppon arrival we were immidiately hooked up to utility and were offered water supply too.
Then were invited to their home, for an interesting conversation, where we found many things in common.
The bonus was that we also got a few technical diagnosys for our RV. Learnt new things
Very nice and welcoming couple.
Highly recommnded host.
