This is a Boondockers Welcome host in Winnsboro, TX
Max Rig Size
Same Day Requests
We are away from any city on 10 acres; this is in a neighborhood on a dead end road. Only about 2 acres are cleared, the rest is wooded and you are welcome to investigate. Our driveway is gravel with the rig parking areas dirt/sandy/weeds, but plenty of shade. We are on a well for water that has been tested. Since we are out in the country, we have the usual "critters" and insects found in Upper East Texas. We have a small fence kennel for large dogs if you want them fenced. Gas/diesel station is 1/4 mile away and able to handle large rigs. We are off the beaten path for tourist attractions but if you are looking for some quiet or a restful time, we can offer you a spot. Suggested Local Attractions: Closest cities are Longview and Tyler Texas about a 45 minutes drive. Smaller towns are within 20 minutes. Gas is available within 1/4 miles and the station can hand large rigs.

We are retired military who love living outside of town Details: Both of us are retired Air Force and moved to Texas in 2012 from Alabama; getting too old for the humidity and Hurricanes. We motorcycle ride, enjoy the outdoors, chatting with our boondockers and square dance for exercise and social enjoyment. Home Town: We live in the country on 10 acres in upper East Texas. While our address list us as Winnsboro, that city is actually 25 minutes from us.

i had an excellent stay here, the hosts were amazing and provided everything i needed. water, wifi, place to let my dogs run and friendly dogs to play with. They even helped me dump my black/ grey water ! And we had a lovely visit before leaving; wonderful hospitality and my idea of a perfect place to stop among friends.

Ken and Cheryl were incredible hosts. They were happy to help me out with any questions I had as a newbie and were a wealth of RVing knowledge. They’re off the beaten path a bit, but still within 30 minutes of a couple Texas State Parks and small towns. Definitely worth stopping if you enjoy good conversation and want to get away from the hustle and bustle.

Such wonderful people out on a beautiful wooded acreage. Loads of trees, wild flowers, birds and other critters. A great spot to rest and recharge for a few days. We will be back.

This was a nice location for us to visit friends close by. The host's were very accommodating and gave us several options to park our trailer.
