Camp Hacks for Nomads

Boondocking (free) sites

Search the map for;

Walmart Supercenters
Use satellite maps to find white lined parking spaces, or other RV’s and trucks
(Possibly Bass Pro and other large outdoor stores)
Rest Areas
Truck Stops
literally search for “truck stops”
Flying J
Most of these places are easily accessible with any RV, but you can always look at the satellite maps in advance to plan an easier entrance/exit.


Bureau of Land Management
Long Term Visitor Area
Arizona and California have multiple areas
These are mostly found in the South West US, but are well worth looking for.
Many are either free, or require a very inexpensive permit
The best part is that you can un-hitch the trailer and stay a while!

Some websites to check for free overnight parking

RV Parky
Walmart Locator
Casino Camper
Parks and Rec gov websites vary by state
State and National parks can offer the lowest overnight rates, and may have memberships available for discounts
Mobile Apps (At least Android)
Trucker Path
RV Parky
Overnight Parking Finder
I am working on this personal collection – Camp Map

Camping discounts


Passport America
Offers half price discounts at select campgrounds around the US
Use Referring Member number C-702863 for referral discounts
Many sites have restrictions based on season, or max # of nights.
Good Sam
Parks usually offer around a 10% discount on nightly rates
Thousand Trails
I have no experience with this, but may be worth a look
Use Google Maps to locate RV parks, check the park website for weekly, monthly, and seasonal rates


For your first times, be sure to land at the site during daylight. It makes parking and setup much easier. This is also helpful as many camp offices close early.
This doesn’t apply to boondocking
Be mindful of the wind before you start towing
