    I don't always agree with Chuck but he does have a point. I have found that the popular Provincial, State and National Parks are hard to get into during the high season when the occasional RVers are heavy users. Other times of the year, spring, fall and w...  more

      Bruce & Linda (Omnibus) There have been a lot of comments in various forums about the lack of quality in RVs.  I tend to agree with those, and I agree that RVIA is just a shill for the manufacturers.  But then, it is the Recreational Vehicle INDUSTRY Association, not t...  more

    Chuck Woodbury tells off the RV industry president: "You need to deep six the 'go where you want, when you want' Go RVing slogan. It’s not true anymore. Try getting a reservation within a month or two at any National Park. Try maybe a year ahead, and you ...  more

      Boondockers Welcome Boondockers Welcome members don't sign up to offer this.(It would also tie up the spot so it's not available for travelers). Maybe try putting an ad on Craig's list with an offer of what you're willing to pay.

    FINALLY had my first successful Boondockers Welcome stay (and it was fantastic). I think the new website will cut down on a lot of the problems I had before (endless no's, people who said yes but never gave the address, etc).

      Boondockers Welcome Anna Sorry for the late response, but so glad to hear that you had a good experience. We've had a lot of positive feedback about the changes to the site, so we're really happy to hear that they seem to be working to iron out the old issues.

    Hey Everyone! We have exhausted our search for any type of RV parking/camping in the area of Salem MA which has a fee of maximum $30. Trust me we have searched websites, made phone calls, you name it. A large portion of places do not open until May. We wi...  more

      Boondockers Welcome We have 8 Boondockers Welcome hosts within 50 miles of Salem. BW hosts are a great  solution when campsites are full or still closed for the season. Not sure what size your rig is. Most of the ones near Salem seem to only have space for a small rig 2...  more

    would someone have a good recommendation for a boondocking or dry camp location (read: value) near Moab? I found Ken's Lake, it seems like a good choice for a dry campground on BLM land. I'm trying to locate the best choice for the 42ft fiver. thanks for any tips!

      Guy & Karen Dana Check campendium.com. there are many BLM sites and other campgrounds listed with many reviews.
    • Ajwallace
      Boondockers Welcome Lots of BLM but most of it now has no camping restrictions. Moab is so popular that it has become a tough place to find any free dispersed boondocking (never mind quality). Especially for your size or rig. Ken's Lake Campground is a good suggestion.

      kenskeeper we found lots of  nice camping along the Colorado river, go pass the first few off of the main road as they fill up first and are not as private. 
      $5. per night - honor system if I remember correctly.
