      LarandSus Mon at 7:51 AM It's too bad they don't give the actual fees rather than percentage increases. The fees could be going from $1 to$2, a 200% increase.

      Boondockers Welcome Mon at 8:28 AM Agreed. I happen to know that the  Cedar Mesa permit is currently $2.00 per person per day. Not familiar with the other - could look it up. But the point is that someone needs to speak up or it's a slippery slope. Public input is a legal requirement ...  more

        Bruce & Linda (Omnibus) December 15 John & Zena’s post indicates these are prices for RV Parks, not BLM land.  These monthly rates are in line with what snowbirds pay in Florida, and the prices there can go much higher.  Why?  Hookups.  BLM areas are boondocking, RV parks are not.

        Andy101 November 8 The profile says " We ask that your stay be limited to one night unless other arrangements are made." We have had several guests stay more than one night.

    November 1I expect this type of thing to happen more often in other areas, too. If there will be less serviced campgrounds, it's good to know we can, hopefully, still access the areas for free dispersed camping. Do you agree? Any drawbacks? Your thoughts?

      Guy & Karen Dana November 1 As we carry up to 145gal of water, 100gal of fuel, have 1800watts of solar and a 10k generator, the prospect is not really daunting, and in some aspects, actually somewhat appealing.

        Kevin & Lonnie at RVing.Website November 1 Gosh!  I thought I was prepared with 87gal of water, 65gal fuel, 80watt solar and 5.5k generator.  I'm going to have to stock up on canned food.  I'm feeling a little depleted all of a sudden 😁
