What a wonderful place to rest from traveling. Ginny is basically a professional Boondockers Welcome Host. She loves people well, has a passion for hosting, and we felt like family as soon as we pulled into Candy Cane Corral. She has room for 10 rigs and she wants to expand to accommodate more! She has an epic texas bbq outdoor kitchen and dining area that could accommodate a party of at least 50? And the Christmas lights display was Amazing! This is a destination stop on your travels and Ginny is absolutely precious! We will definitely return. Thank you Ginny!

This was our first boondockers welcome, and Ginny with Candy Cane Corral set the bar so high for the stay that I'm afraid nothing else will match. All the light decorations were up and was a wonderful peaceful night stay. Strongly recommend this as a stop over to not only get a good nights sleep in a safe location, but enjoy some great company as well.

Just a wonderful place to stay. Ginny does such a great job guiding us right to our spot and eyeballed the levelness and it was spot on! The new outdoor kitchen area is just fabulous with all the new lights. We will be sending many prayers for Georgia to make it to 100 this Feb.
