About me

Barry and Linda

We have been RVing since our early married life in the 70's. I am a retired General Contractor (wood butcher extraordinaire) and Linda retired from a career in Cosmetology (hairbender). We still have a stix & brix home, but travel extensively throughout the year whenever we want. Thus RV-Anytimers. We will be posting our travels so our family and friends can ride along. view my complete profile.

  •   Did you know that by the time a teen in the US reaches 16 years of age, they are spending less than seven hours a week in nature, and these trends are worldwide.

      This year, there will be 42 different sports and over 300 events taking place at the Olympics. Perhaps you have a project related to these upcoming games, or maybe you’ll be working on a project which is somehow related? Wouldn’t it be great to have a set of consistent icons for all sports-related activities, just in case? Well, that’s just what we thought […]

      Computers and human beings don’t speak the same language. So, to make interaction possible, we rely on graphical user interfaces (GUIs).

Best places for Boondocking

December 3rd, 2014

So you are going on free camping, but can’t find the good places?

As dry camping is all about camping in a free space without hookups, you can arguably find more suitable places than you may find if you go full time. Although you need to have a sense of adventure to find good remote areas, prior knowledge of suitable places is still valuable.

In my last post, I have talked on Boondocking and its basics. In this post, I will tell you different places where you can enjoy free camping without being broke!

 

Casinos

TruckStopB

Many casinos provide free space for free camping, just make sure to read the laws of the places there. Ask the casino owner to get hold of information about free spaces around them. Las Vegas is full of casinos, and is a deserted place as well, which is positive thing if you are going for free camping. Many spaces around the casinos provide electricity and WIFI as well.

 

National Parks

Some National Parks in the US allow overnight RV parking and boondocking, although camping is generally restricted to established campgrounds.High popularity areas of USFS (United States Forest Service) and BLM (Bureau of Land Management) often have restricted access camping areas. For example, the area around Mammoth Lakes, CA is extremely popular with tourists, and many areas allow camping only in designated campgrounds. Information about camping restrictions are available at USFS Ranger District and BLM Resource Area offices.

Desert

The BLM (Bureau of Land Management) controls vast amounts of land across the southwest and other areas of the country.  They allow you to pick out your little corner of the desert and stay for 14 consecutive days in one spot before you’re required to move at least 25 miles away where you can again spend an additional 14 days.  If you establish 3 to 4 campsites — and rotate between them — you could stay indefinitely for free.  Or you could stay in one of their Long Term Visitor Areas for a flat-rate seasonal fee.
