There are couple of options. (1) You park anywhere on the BLM land for 2 weeks for free, but there are no "services." (2) Better option: The Long Term Visitor Areas cost $40 for 2 weeks and you get trash bins, pit toilets, RV dump station, and water (not a hookup). Only crowded near town. Otherwise you can find a spot where your closest neighbor is a couple of hundred yards away. Just stop at one of the La Posa LTVA ranger stations off hwy 95 south of town. A fair-size solar panel and small generator will keep you in Volts.
