If you have been traveling in an RV for a while you know that campground prices can be really expensive. Especially when they add up while you are on an extended vacation or traveling full-time. Here are some of the sites and apps we have found that can help with the expense of camping:
- Boondockers Welcome - Passport America - Good Sam Club - National, Provincial, and State Parks - iOverlander - Harvest Hosts - AllStays
OK, ok, that was obvious, right? Well if you haven't checked us out yet, what are you waiting for? Here's a great testimonial from a new member on how Boondockers Welcome helped her save money:
"My boyfriend and I were planning on traveling the July 4th weekend to somewhere in Mississippi. We had made reservations at a campground in Columbus, MS last week for the price of $150 for 3 days. I woke up the morning we were to leave and happened upon this website. I found a place in Preston, MS that looked like a little piece of heaven on earth and perfect for what we wanted (peace, quiet, able to run our dogs, electricity) and decided to risk the $50 membership fee. LITERALLY less than one hour later, our host accepted the request and even called to confirm. The best part was that after chatting we realized that he has family in the same place as I do in Virginia and a relative who is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from our hometown in Virginia.
I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this site! So instead of spending $150 today on lodging, we spent $50! Who could ask for a better July 4th present!"
Boondockers Welcome is a community of RVers that provide overnight stays with each other for free while traveling through an area. We help RVers to travel more economically and find options when campgrounds may be full. It’s a great and safe way to meet fellow RVers or for people curious about the RV lifestyle to learn from members, while also providing a safe place to park for one night or up to five nights.
