Living on the road full-time is an adventure. One of the biggest challenges is where to park your home. The #1 we  save money is to boondock or free camping. Boondocking is dry camping without any amenities or hook-ups..   Where are this amazing places we speak of, how do you find them? Some of the most amazing boondocking locations include Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land and National Forests. We use a few different resources to find our place to camp or park.There are many places to camp for free in an RV or tent in the United States.

1. Free Campsites.Net

We Use this website to find free camping all over the USA. There is also a Facebook page too. My advice is once you find a place is to read the reviews and make sure your rig or vehicle can make it to the free camping location. If you love Apps they have that too.

2. Campendium

This website has free camping options too. They show not only places off the grid but Cabela’s, Cracker Barrels and other overnight locations. You can also find dump locations too. Make sure you read the review of a site before planning to camp. 



3. BLM and National Forests Website/Office

You can check either the BLM or National Forest website where you are planning to visit or you can visit the local rangers office. We often stop by the local office and ask the rangers about road conditions and the best places to boondock (free camping). They often have maps too. 

Boondocking is an great way to camp for free. However you need to pack out all your trash. Most of these places do not have restrooms so plan on bringing a portable toilet system or click here to see how to poop in the woods.

4. AllStays APP

These APPS can find you all kinds of places to park overnight for free. They list Walmarts, Sams Club, Costco, stores  like (Camping World, REI, Cabelas, Gander Mtn, Dicks, Bass Pro Shops), casinos, Elk Lodges and more. They also have a list of Truck Stops with amenities, rest areas, welcome centers and turn outs. If you are looking for an off the beaten path spot its show you primitive hike-in/boat-in/rough road spots that other apps exclude. In addition this app show you dump station locations too. ALLSTAYS PRO is the APP we use.
