Free or low cost camping ideas





The best way to find free RV parking spots is to ask the local police or sheriff office. 
A phone call is all it takes

Private lands owned by timber companies that allow free camping.

Arizona has a public lands recreation permit ($20) that allows free RV camping on state lands.

We always recommend asking for overnight RV parking permission when looking for a free spot 
to spend the night.

Truck Stops – Asking permission is usually not a requirement Be considerate of the big rigs!

Walmart – Not all stores allow overnight RV parking due to city ordinances. Check store for policy.
Cracker Barrel – These nationwide restaurants usually allow free overnight RV parking.
Big Box Retailers – Kmart, Best Buy, Sams Club often allow free RV camping.

Highway Rest Areas – All rest areas allow a few hours of free RV parking, but noisy. But some
do not allow overnight parking look for signs when you pull in. 

Roadside Parks & Picnic Areas – The early day version of the rest area. Check for signs about
over night stays.  
 
Fairgrounds – State and County facilities may allow RV camping when not otherwise in use.
Parks – City, County, State, and Community parks often have free RV camping.

Keep a list of the places you find to stay at, you never know when you may go though there again.

New kitchen dishes and storage for them.

We replaced our plastic dishes with ones from Corelle that are supposed to be hard to brake and added holders from Camco secured to the cabinets to hold them in place.
