This is a very unique Boondocker welcome host site and is one of the most visited in the nation. The camping area is very large and is pull-through so you don't have to unhook if you don't want to. You may have the place to yourself but during the cool season, there are likely to be other campers here. All pets are welcome. No leashes are required. We have no fences so you are responsible for keeping your critters from running off. If you let your animals run free make sure they are not a problem for other campers. There is an easy-access pull-through dump station available. There are water faucets so you can fill your onboard freshwater tank. You have access to the entire farm except for the house and barn areas. Generators are allowed. You do not need to check with us. When you arrive come on in a setup camp. We will stop by and say hi at some point. Please leave a reference after your stay. This is the only thing we ask of you. We do not charge or accept money.

We offer a very roomy camping area that is away from our home. It gives the campers some anonymity and freedom to do pretty much any activity. Campers have access to the entire farm except for the house and barn areas. If other Boondockers are present, please communicate with them and be good neighbors. We do not accept compensation. You may arrive anytime on the first day of your scheduled stay. In most cases, you will be on your own but the drive to the camping area is well marked. We will stop by and say hi. Wandering pets and wild kids are not a problem - just keep them away from the house and barns. We do not expect anything from guests but a modicum of courtesy is appropriate. It is appreciated if you say goodbye when you leave... in person if we are around or just send a message or text. Nobody is allowed to work on the farm or help in any way; please do not ask. No uninvited guests. Please only those invited through Boondockers Welcome. We love sharing our farm with you. Please leave a referral after your stay.
We are less than 10 minutes from interstate I-75. Paved roads to within a country block of the farm and then a lime rock road to the farm's main gate. It is no problem for our tag axle 43-foot diesel pusher motorhome. Tow Vehicle Parking is unlimited.

Emeral Oaks Farm is a gem to stay at with a gorgeous large grassy parking area. The directions to get there are accurate, follow them! Bill had a piece of paper with our name on it posted at the gate which detailed where we should set up. He has water available and is very accommodating. It is a great stay and we thank Bill for opening his farm to us.

These hosts provided very detailed and excellent instructions to their place. The first thing you notice is the beautiful driveway - it looks so magestic with the overhangiing trees. You just know you are going to a wonderful place. And then the hosts are so very friendly, helpful, and hospitable. This definitely is one of our favorite stops. Thanks for everything!
