Favorite Boondocking Locations

We bought our trailer 2 years ago and so far we have made a 7-week trip to west coast, a 4-week trip to Florida and Louisiana, week-long trips to Connecticut and North Carolina. We have put over 16,000 miles on her and keep making small improvements between trips.

We enjoy nature, museums, visiting relatives and wineries and just plain finding out-of-the-way places.

boatboydad's Hometown

We live in the country just a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean. The towns near us on the coast are popular resort towns. Inland is farmland used for raising chickens, corn and soybean.

I greatly enjoyed my three nights and this secluded retreat. During these days I explored southern Delaware and enjoyed outdoors activities. It was wonderful to see a retired man that enjoyed his work so much he just keeps doing it. I enjoyed our evening chats around the campfire. Definitely worst a repeat visit next time I'm in the area.

Winter Visit

It may sound strange to visit a beach in the winter time, but to me that's the best time to enjoy it. The hosts are fantastic and extremely friendly. The property is a beautiful setting in the woods and at night you can see every star in the sky. We traded stories of traveling and breakdowns and they took the time to make sure I was comfortable. The location is only 5 miles from public beach parking which allowed me to get my beach fill in. I highly recommend the location and meeting these great folks.

Great Location

Our hosts had us over the first night for tea and conversation. Lots of info on Delaware and local sites. Shared our RV travels and stories...just a great time.

It's like visiting family.

The hosts treated us like family would. I can't even describe how much help they were in setting us up and making sure we had everything we needed for our stay. We wished to have stayed longer than the 2 days they allowed. Their property is beautiful and peaceful surrounded by tall trees. I would like to publicly thank them again for being such great help to us and for welcoming us into their lives and sharing their life with us by being generous towards our needs on the road.

Great Stay

This is a great place to stop in. The hosts were very nice and accommodating. They had some great ideas on places to checkout around town and general traveling. It’s quite and tucked away from the road. I would definitely recommend this place.

The best hosts in Delaware

Lynn and her husband were very nice to myself, my wife and my kids. It was my first time using the camper and they gave us lots of good advice and even offered to help with a minor repair. Nice couple to talk with when around. I appreciate them for making our stay lovely. They opened up their big backyard for the kids to play in too. We were mostly on day trips though. Thanks guys for all you did.
