Boondocking Gives Your RVing Budget a Break

Last updated on April 27th, 2009 at 08:06 pm

RV travel is among the least expensive lifestyles and there are many ways to make RVing fit even the most frugal budget.

One of the best ways to save money when RVing on a budget is to boondock on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land. There are lots of places to boondock even for extended stays. The ones that I’m most familiar with are the BLM lands in western Arizona around Quartzsite and Yuma, and southern California at Slab City near Niland. But there are many others around the country.

A search for ‘free boondocking areas’ will find more places and information. Also, easy on the budget overnights can be found in parking lots, relative’s driveways and some RV parks or campgrounds that have dry camp areas. These are usually very low cost or free. –Steven Fletcher
