Tip 10: Save Money By Camping for FREE
There are some RVers who have never paid for a single camping spot!
It might sound too good to be true, but some people have so perfected this art that they dedicate entire books and YouTube channels to teaching other people how to do the same.
It’s important to note that, for most of these options, your rig will need to be off-grid capable. That’s because most options for free and cheap camping do not provide full on-site amenities. Some provide none at all.
How To Camp for Free
These are some of the top ways you can camp for free while traveling full-time:
Taking full advantage of workamping arrangements
Moochdocking on property owned by friends and family
Boondocking on public land owned by BLM and the National Forest
House-sitting on properties with room to park your RV
Camping in Wal-Mart parking lots
Stealth camping in urban areas
How To Camp for Cheap
When free options are not available to you, there are still several ways you can significantly reduce your camping costs. These are some of the many I have encountered—all of which I have used myself:
New Mexico State Parks Annual Camping Pass
Nevada State Parks Annual Camping Pass
Monthly and quarterly stays
