Please be respectful.
Access Road Conditions: Gravel road less than 1/4 mile and then a gravel drive with slight incline sharp turn into drive, an experienced driver can negotiate the turn no problem. Four wheel truck helpful, motor homes under 35' should have no problem. Some small branches may swipe side of rig I have not had an issue with my 26 foot pull behind. Some locations are not level but only by a small amount, can be corrected with a couple boards. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Because of the loose gravel when turning into the driveway if you are pulling a car with all wheels down, please disconnect the car because the front wheels may not turn to follow the coach, I had that issue when I had a motor home pulling a car. Please disconnect car before making the turn into the drive way. Space and room to turn a rig around once on the property. Trailers more than 32' might not be able to make the turn into the drive. Motorhomes should not have a problem. If there is an issue entering the drive, turn around at the south end of Winston Rd. and approach from other direction as there is a turn out. Once on the property past the gate there is ample space to turn around.

I enjoy traveling with my dog Zoey in my 25' Rockwood trailer, especially the music festivals at the Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park in Live Oak FL. Home Town: Deland is a small charming town with Stetson University in the center of town, a very active downtown with many restaurants with sidewalk dining and bars with live music. The area is known for its many natural crystal clear springs in the area. Favorite Boondocking Locations: in the early 90s I parked in San Diego at a public park on Mission Bay.

Scott is such an amazing host. He is so geniune and totally the salt of the earth. His property is an oasis, tucked away in the beautiful jungle of Central FL with tons of wildlife nearby. He made us feel like family which was especially nice since we were traveling over Thanksgiving. Thank you again Scott, we cant wait until our paths cross again someday.

Space in the woods is a great location within 3 miles of Deleon Springs State Park and there are plenty of great bike trails in the area. Scott and his cute little dog were fantastic. Very friendly and offerred us information about where to visit in the area. He has plenty of parking and his place is beautiful and very quiet at night. We really enjoyed our 2 night stay and felt very safe.
