Absolutely amazing location and what a nice guy. Mark provides a shower in his house for guests and ask him about the washer/dryer. Also you can top off your van’s water tank. If you are a fan of bird watching you’ll love the view from his deck. Bring your binoculars! If we come back to Mobile (15 min. away) we will definitely stay here again!!

We loved our stay! We originally planned on staying one night, but as our plans changed, this host was very gracious in letting us boom 2 extra nights, which were all lovely! Evening walks by the water and down the street were awesome. We’ll definitely be back if we’re in the area!

Staying at Mark’s place was so enjoyable! We have a camper van and we’re able to park right down by the water. We are traveling and working full-time, so a good internet connection is something we really rely on and Mark’s WiFi was superb. His house is a very easy drive into downtown Mobile, which is a must see! We enjoyed getting to know Mark and feel like we made a new friend. He is so easy going, let’s you use his shower in his home, there is easy access to a water spicket outside, and we loved the tranquility of the property and location. Our pups loved it, too! Mark is doing some pretty major improvements to his property and we cannot wait to get back to see all the changes and catch up with him. Very highly recommend staying at Mark’s place, whether for a night or a week like we did! You will enjoy every minute and enjoy the great conversations with him,! Thank you for everything, Mark!

Mark was a incredibly gracious host and let us put our hammocks under his deck when we forgot our tent poles. The dock and moon over the water was magical especially with the symphony of frogs. Great little plants and a good fire pit if you remember to bring wood.

Mark’s spot is great. A little oasis within the city. He greeted me upon arrival to show me around and even generously offered the use of his shower and bathroom inside his home.

Mark’s is a really cool dude. The fact we were able to use a bathroom was really convenient. The string is great, and we are already booked with Mark again!

This place. Just WOW! We were blown away by Mark’s hospitality and kindness. This spot is an absolute gem! We had our blowup kayak and paddled the bayou and it was incredible at sunset. We visited Dauphin Island and the USS battleship in Mobile. They were both super close to this spot. Our camp spot provided lots of green space for our dogs and we were across the yard from the dock. It was honestly the best camping experience that we have EVER had. A million times better than a crowded camp ground. Mark is genuine and his space felt very safe. Highly recommend!!! We will definitely be back!
