Norm, take a look at Map of Free Camping Areas | Go Camping for Free! . I see no reason to reinvent a wheel.

We stay there on our way to and from SoCal for our winter holiday.
Showers aren't the greatest but decent, gravel parking, water and ele, wifi but not great, no tv.
Very quite at nite, I love it there.
$30 ish a nite, ya I know not cheap but it's wine country, cheap for there.

EDIT
probably shouldn't have posted this here, missed the point about being for full timers, Mod should delete please.
I think this is OK. Full timers some times splurge for a special area. Do you know the monthly rate?

Their website?

I also belong to Escapee's Days End that lists free or almost free places. Personally I like to see suggestions from others. If it turns out to be a hassle or if no one likes it. I'll stop.

I know places like Rustys in Rodeo NM are unique, and not expensive and are not on those kinds of lists. Though they are listed in all the guides how would anyone find them?

I don't think it's reinventing the wheel! The more info out there the better--it's a great additional list and I would welcome it.

Including the posters name will be real helpful. If we want to know more about a campground, we know who to contact.

It would also be nice if FRV members who stay at these campgrounds can rate and leave a comment.

Joy,
Thank you for your response.

I'm willing to put it together but there seems to be limited responses to requests for information.

I was hoping it could be a list of low cost campgrounds offering something special, un- noticed locations with positive attributes, not merely free places to spend a night or two.

This was in response to RattlesnakeJoe's comments about full timing in another thread.

I will put it together with the info we have and see if it grows.

Thanks again Joy,

I could recommend some nice state parks and such but I've never full, or even part timed so my stays have only been for a few nights. I figured the list would be more for very cheap or longer term stays. When it get up over $20 a night, a month gets up there in price for many.

RI
Narragansett
Fisherman's Memorial State Park
$18
W/E, some full
Wifi, ?
Dump Y
Shopping 3
Special, beaches, fishing, seafood, Block Island Ferry
Fishermen's Memorial State Park
21 day max

Grand Coulee

Well taken care of, mowed and trash pick up--New tables & outhouses last year. There are also over 300 lakes and ponds for fishing. We've also stayed at numerous city parks for low cost camping for just a few dollars. The best deal was at Grand Coolee Dam in Washington (some covered sites with a roof over them) for $2.50 a night. Hopefully more people will add to this thread!!
Would you provide a little more info on Grand Coulee camping?

Thanks.

Norm

Full timing campgrounds

Happy Easter to all.

I've started the list and will continue to fill it out with some we've stayed at and any new information.

I will certainly change the format as I enter more information. Thanks to those who've submitted information.

Personally, I think that knowing low-cost camping sites, especially for long-term, is awesome information to be able to access!!!

Thanks, Norm, for offering to catalogue it. And keep the info coming, everyone!

Boondockers Welcome Website

Has anyone joined, or looked at boondockerswelcome.com?
It's run by a Canadian mother-daughter team and is a system for trading RV boondocking sites at members' homes.

So, people who have room for an RV to camp in their yard, driveway, or on their property join as a Host. In exchange, members are able to arrange for boondocking on someone else's property. There is an annual charge of about $20. And, there's a lot more details and options on the website.

Although it appears that most of these camping "trades" are just a nite or 2, it looks like a good relationship with a Host could turn into a more long-term camping arrangement.

Mark
