It's kind of slim on listings, though, at least here in the southwest. One of our Airforum members has put out listings of free/cheap sites for a whole bunch of states, and those lists are much more comprehensive.

Of course it is lean - it's brand spanking new! One way to help get it started would be to add one of your favorite spots. One you don't use often - if ever.

The BIG difference is the use of Google Maps. I don't think the intention is to assemble a long list of Walmarts, truck stops and places to just pull over for a night enroute. That's been done over and over again! As I understand it the purpose is to list real camping places.

This forum has some of the best such boondock places I've seen, but also contains a wealth of other boondocking info. The new site is just places...

Hi, I think it is a great idea and hope it does get bigger.

But right off the bat I see the PA Welcome Center near me is listed. I'm almost certain they do not allow camping. Reading more carefully I see they are listing it for bathrooms, water and picnic tables. So I guess not all of their listings are for camping.

Pretty cool idea. Some enterprising person needs to upload/port over all the "cheap or free in" posts on Airforums. Nice to see them on a map.

all the sites listed in new hampshire are park and ride lots. thats not much different from staying at a walmart or a truck stop IMO.

i would love to see some real camp sites show up though...

We were looking for an appropriate thread to post yesterday's find----a city campground in Grayville, Illinois, off Route 1 close to the Indiana border. A well-marked route takes you to a rather narrow, paved road, and up a hill to a very wooded, pretty area. Shelter, dump station, water, electricity, potties, a single shower----and FREE!! A handful of these sites are reasonably level, others somewhat so. Tent and trailer/RV sites seem to cohabitate nicely throughout to use all available space. Probably crowded on weekends, but we are right now one of only three visitors to this park. FREE!!

Tried this insurance game didn't tell me any quotes unless you go directly to the insurance sites they support.

One of the most complete listings of free or cheap camping includingboondocking is the Days End listing put out by Guy Gibson - but you need to be a member of the Escapees to get it. The current listing is 834 pages long and covers the U.S.A. and Canada. Members of Days End submit changes (new finds, modifications and deletions), so the list is pretty current. Points are assigned to the contributors which offset the renewal fee (normally $10/yr). See The Day's End Directory

We've been working on our own RV camping website for the past 2 years, so far we have 696 free places to camp out of 21,640. We're still in development, but are slowly letting people in. You can sign up for early access here: RV Parks, Caravan Parks, and unique RV Camping locations - Campendium
